It’s a well known fact that one of the perks of having an adorable baby girl is playing fancy dress up. These baby girl costumes are perfect for Halloween and special occasions. We have monsters, we have unicorns, and we have butterflies… Which one will look the cutest on your princess?

1. Rubie’s Costume Pinky Winky Monster Costume

2. Rubie’s Costume Precious Wabbit Costume

Pink Rabbit Baby Girl Costume

Could anything possibly be cuter than a baby in a bunny costume? Yes, and we’ve found it! It’s a baby in a bunny costume with a carrot shaped rattle. We can’t get enough of this costume, it ticks all of the cute boxes. Made with super soft chenille and flannel it’s gentle on a baby’s skin while also giving the perfect fluffy bunny look.

The gingham patches remind us picnic blankets in the countryside and the ribbon tied in a bow completes the country look. The costumes comes with a separate headpiece adorned with enormous floppy ears and a big white pompom.

This wabbit costume comes in two shades of pink, but what we’re most excited about is that they do a matching boy’s costume in blue. If you’ve not got your own baby boy we strongly suggest you find a friend who does, because a double precious rabbit duo would be the cutest thing in the world.

3. StylesILove Snow White Baby Girl Costume

Snow White Baby Girl Costume

We love this Snow White inspired costume because it can be used for so many different occasions. Kids are going to love it as a go-to costume in a dressing up box, and yours is sure to be the favourite play-date house if you’ve got this little number tucked away.

It would also be the perfect costume for Halloween as it’s instantly recognisable as a character costume. The real story of Snow White is really quite dark as well, so it would be the idea for a cute-but-not-so-cute costume on Halloween. For those that don’t read into their costumes quite as much as we do, it goes down well as a classic and adorable princess costume for little girls.

StylesILove know how quickly your little ones grow and so they have included ‘grow with me’ buttons which allow you to adjust the fit of the jumpsuit. That means that this won’t be a one-time wear kind of costume, but you can keep it on hand for any and all fancy dress occasions.

4. InCharacter Baby Girls’ Lil’ Monster Costume

Monster Baby Girl Costume

The best thing about this monster costume is that it’s cute but not in the same standard cute way as many of the other monster costumes on our list. We love this monster because it’s goofy. It’s a little bit cross-eyed and has the monster version of buck-teeth, and we think that’s just hilarious.

It’s made with three different materials which will keep you curious baby exploring the costumes long fluffy purple fur, silky arm fur and smooth pink feet. The booties are separate from the jumpsuit and have non-slip bottoms, some your little girl can totter around without slipping and sliding.

The jumpsuit also has snaps all the way down the legs for quick and easy diaper change, so your little monster can spend more time goofing around.

5. Carter’s Baby Butterfly Costume

Butterfly Baby Girl Costume


This adorable butterfly costume by Carter’s will be sure to melt hearts at any family gathering. It’s made with your baby’s comfort in mind and the whole jumpsuit is made from a soft fleecy material in one single piece.

You don’t need to worry about the headpiece falling off or getting lost as it’s attached to the jumpsuit, which makes it extra warm and cuddly for your little one. The zippered front makes this costume easy to take on and off and it’s machine washable so any spillages and stains can be easy washed out without having to scrub them out over the kitchen sink.

What we love about this costume is the simplicity and comfort of the design and the choice of colours, which are varied without being too garish.

6. InCharacter Baby Girls’ Little Red Riding Hood Costume

Little Red Riding Hood Baby Girl Costume

This is the perfect dress-up costume for any little girl and we can’t get enough of all the details that make this costume so special. The all-important red hooded cape features an adorable bow that hides the neck fastening so can be removed easily if your little one is getting hot.

Your little one will be instantly recognizable as Little Red Riding Hood with the hood attached, but without it this costume doubles as an adorable old-fashioned dress and apron. The gingham hem and big puffy sleeves make this even cuter, and the apron and skirt almost gives the impression of a little chef!

The overall look is definitely one of a mini German maiden, especially with the little black booties. However you choose to dress this costume, with or without the cape, we’re certain your little girl will melt hearts!

7. Rubie’s Deluxe Baby Berry Costume

Strawberry Baby Girl Costume

We’re glad that this costume comes in sizes up to two years old because we want to see as many kids dressed up as berries as possible – not just the babies! If you thought your baby girl couldn’t get any sweeter then think again!

You’ll just want to eat her up in this super sweet berry tunic. This is the perfect dress up costume for warmer months as it doesn’t have any sleeves or bottoms – the tights featured in the picture don’t come with the costume. We think it would be the ideal costume for an Easter party, just as spring is in the air and everyone is getting excited for summer.

Equally, it would be a great costume for a harvest festival at school or at church, and your kid is sure to be the cutest on stage dressed as a big red strawberry!

8. California Costumes Baby Doll Costume

Women Doll Baby Girl Costume

Have you ever dreamed of having your own real life doll that will actually play with you? This great costume by California Costumes takes you one step closer to your fantasy with this adorable baby doll costume.

Not only will you enjoy dressing your little girl up as a rag doll, but she’ll love all the attention and she’s bound to enjoy playing the part of your very own doll. We love the kookiness of this particular costume. It’s not your typical cutesy doll costume and we think the combination of pink and black will make your girlie one look like a little rock chick!

The stripy legs and arms and the wild rag-doll hair all add to this devil-may-care look, which we think is breath of fresh air compared to the majority of little girl costumes. If you’re raising a rock and roll chica who still loves to dress up, we can’t recommend this costume enough!

9. DC Comics Supergirl Costume

Supergirl Baby Girl Costume

It’s 2017 and being a superhero is no longer just for boys. In fact, it’s no longer just for adults – meet the new super baby! This costume is officially liscened by DC Comics so when you buy this adorable outfit you’re getting the real deal.

It’s easy for everyone in the family to join the super hero party as you can also buy superhero costumes of baby boys, children and of course grown-ups! So there’s no excuse for not dressing up as a family for the next big fancy dress party.

Your little girl will love this costume because it’s made just like her usual baby-grow, with poppers for easy diaper changes. The only addition is the tutu, which is made from soft material and is perfect for your supergirl.

The headband is an optional extra but we think it is the cherry on this superhero cake and isn’t going to leave anyone in any doubt as to who is the super baby around here!

10. InCharacter Baby Pink Elephant Costume

Pink Elephant Baby Girl Costume

This costume comes in four sizes ranging from 0-24 months so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your own little pink elephant. The jumpsuit is made of extra soft material that is going to make you want to cuddle your bubba all day long. The headpiece is detachable and features those enormous ellie ears and a plush stuffed ellie trunk.

We love the addition of a mini silk hat on top of the headpiece as well, it’s too cute! Your baby will be kept warm and cosy with the booties, which have skid resistant feet so you don’t need to worry about your little one slipping and hurting herself.

The separate booties come complete with flowery ruffles and non-slip soles, perfect for your busy little bee. The headpiece is the showstopper of this costume, and not only features enormous pink petals but also a soft central yellow band to keep it secure on your baby’s head.

We think this is the perfect costume for an Easter or spring-time celebration, but that’s no reason not to dress your little one up at any other occasion too!

Fairy Tutu Baby Girl Costume

Let your baby become a beautiful fairy princess with this classic pink fairy costume set. It’s all you need for a cheap and cheerful fairy costume that is quick and easy to take on and off.

13. InCharacter Baby This Lil’ Piggy Costume

Lil' Piggy Baby Girl Costume

This lil’ piggy went to market, this lil’ piggy stayed at home, this lil’ piggy had a great costume, this lil’ piggy has none. That’s how the old nursery rhyme goes, right? We think it should anyway! This awesome costume will have you snorting with laughter as your little one squeals with happiness.

It’s made from a thinner material than many other costumes featured on our list, which means that it’s great for warm summer days and sunny picnics. But what’s also great is that you can easily layer up clothes underneath the jumpsuit, so your little one can look fabulous and stay warm in all seasons.

InCharacter have fitted this out with both a zipper and snaps, so a costume has never been easier to put on and take off. The headpiece is attached to the jumpsuit meaning it’s extra cosy and comfy for your little oinker!

14. Mixmax Crochet Mouse Costume

Micky Mouse Baby Girl Costume

Based on everyone’s favourite Disney mouse, this adorable costume combines simplicity with old-fashioned materials and techniques to create a unique and heart-meltingly cute outfit. We love the fact that this is made from a genuine wool blend and crocheted just like grandma used to do.

You can even pretend that you knitted it yourself – we won’t tell if you don’t! It’s super soft and cosy against your newborn’s skin and still allows a full range of movement for wriggly tots. We really enjoy the little details that take this outfit to the next level – like including a knitted diaper attached to the skirt, as well as a knitted mouse tail poking out the back.

For us, it’s the red booties with their white buttons that crank the cuteness level into overdrive!

15. Toddler Minnie Mouse Costume

Mouse Baby Girl Costume

Once your little one has grown out of their mini mouse costume they can continue the fun with this toddler-sized Minnie costume! It features all hallmarks of the famous Disney character, with polkadot skirt, puffy sleeves and peter pan collar.

The outfit even comes complete with a headband with ears and polkadot bow attached. What’s great about this costume is that it’s a timeless character that kids and adults alike can recognise, so your little girl will be a hit with everyone at the party!

Supergirl Baby Girl Costume

This is the second superman style costume featured on our list but we just couldn’t leave it off. We love the mix of classic superman colours with a tutu and sparkly headband. It goes to show that supergirls don’t have to dress is pink but can still look fabulous and save the world!

The eyecatching colours will make your little lass stand out as a superhero, and everyone will love the little girly additions to the iconic superman design. The outfit itself is made with comfort in mind, just like your usual babygrow, with snap buttons for easy diaper changes and removal.

This costume can be worn all day long by your bubba without getting in the way of her learning and play. While she might forget how adorable she looks, you won’t be able to take your eyes of your little supergirl in her awesome outfit.

Lady Bug Baby Girl Costume

The antennas on the headpiece will have you in stitches as they wobble to and fro while your little one totters around on her non-slip booties.

The wings are attached to the main jumpsuit and are made of the same soft and flexible material as the antennas, so even lying on her back your little one won’t be bothered by her big lady bug wings.

18. Princess Paradise Baby Girls’ Laura The Lamb

Sheep Lamb Baby Girl Costume

We’re not exactly sure who exactly Laura the Lamb is, but we think she’s pretty damn cute and we love this costume! You’ll be drowning in compliments from other parents when your little girl rocks up in the costume.

It would be perfect for a nativity play or any other performance which features sheep and needs an injection of cuteness. It’s just as good for halloween or any other dress up day, and we love the originality of the materials used.

Instead of the standard plush fluff, Princess Paradise have opted for a more sheep-like material for the wool, and supersoft peachy patches for the belly, feet and ears. While the costume does look a little bit like you could use it as a bath mat, the overall effect is definitely unique and decidedly ‘sheepy’!

19. InCharacter Baby’s Precious Peacock Costume

Peacock Baby Girl Costume

While this costume is technically of a male peacock, we thought it was just too fabulous to leave off of our baby-girl costume list. What little girl wouldn’t want to dress as flamboyantly as this? The bright colours and different textures of this costume make it great for curious little ones who will take great enjoyment playing with all the different parts of the costume.

There’s a real mix of materials used in this costume, from the green felt comb on the head to the non-slip dots on the feet. Both the booties and the giant tail are removable which is handy as we can see a baby getting tired of tottering around with a peacock’s tail attached to her bum, even if it is soft and lightweight.

The jumpsuit is made of soft material which will keep your baby warm and comfy all day long, and with a zippered closure as well as legs snaps, it’s easy to pop of and off at the drop of a hat.

20. InCharacter Pretty Little Pirate Costume

Pirate Baby Girl Costume

No longer are pirate costumes reserved for little boys – here comes a swashbuckling rasclette in her Pretty Little Pirate costume! This costume is perfect for Halloween, although we can’t promise your little lady will be scaring many people in this costume, more likely making them melt with her cuteness!

What makes this costume so fabulous is all the piratey details – it’s made of one main jumpsuit with all the details sewn in, so you don’t have to worry about adding any extra details. It’s got ruffles, gold trim, lace, a waistcoat and even a jabot (the ruffle around the neck).

The headscarf is separate and adds an extra layer of swashbuckling piratey-ness that we love.

21. InCharacter Girls’ Magical Unicorn Costume

Magical Unicorn Baby Girl Costume

Bring the magic of fairytales to life with this outrageuoslly adorable Magical Unicorn costume by InCharacter. It’s got everything you could want from a unicorn costume, and combines great design with comfort and practicality.

What’s great about this wig is you get all the wow-factor of a classic 50’s up-do without any of the hassle. It can take hours to style the perfect victory rolls, as well as millions (okay maybe that’s an exaggeration) of bobby pins to secure your hair in the perfect position.

19. Wizard Of Oz Dorothy Wig

Wizard of Oz Dress Up Wig

It’s hard not to feel nostalgic when thinking of The Wizard of Oz. Few films have stood the test of time as well as this classic featuring Judy Garland as the main character Dorothy. This is a costume that will surely endear you to many people and make them think back to their childhood, as there aren’t many people in the world that haven’t at least heard of The Wizard of Oz.

This wig alone may not be instantly recognizable as Dorothy but when paired with her blue and white dress and famous red sparkly shoes, you won’t leave anyone guessing who you’re meant to be. Another great addition to this costume would be a little wicker basket and a Cairn Terrier dog.

If you’re struggling to find a Cairn Terrier to borrow then we’re sure a stuffed toy dog will work just as well!

20. Kangaroo Rock ‘n Roll Black Wig

Elvis Dress Up Wig

No costume box would be complete without this iconic wig which bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain king of rock ‘n’ roll. While not specifically an ‘Elvis’ wig, it’s clear the look that Kangaroo Costumes are going for – and it’s a rocking one!

This is an easy go-to costume for any last-minute fancy dress parties as it’s hard not to recognise who this hair-do belongs to. A pair of big shades and a southern drawl is all that’s needed to confirm this costume, but if you want to really look the part we suggest a white suit (preferably with gold studs and tassels), cowboy boots and a guitar.

Better still, learn a few tunes on the guitar and you’ll be rocking the party all night long!
