    This is the ultimate "cheat" for a cheap baby Halloween costume.

    Stick in a pacifier like this buck-toothed one (or the pumpkin ...or the ghost) and you're done!

    The pacifiers are all dentist-happy, fully-tested, and government-approved. Plus, they'll make LOTS of people smile. smiley tiny

Animal Planet Meerkat Infant Costume = $9.99

    Originally $34.99, this costume is sitting on the clearance shelf just waiting for the perfect click.

    Unlike a real meerkat though, this one has snaps on the under leg inseams for easy diaper changes.

    Available only for babies over 6 months old. If your baby is younger, keep reading. I've got a cheap baby Halloween costume for your newborn coming up.

Smarties Bunting Baby Costume = $9.99

    Even though this is a bunting costume, size-wise it's better for a baby wearing 6 month to 12 month clothing.

    The Dora and Diego Costumes below are sold in smaller sizes; take a look at those for a cheap baby Halloween costume for your newborn.

Dora & Diego Baby Costumes = $9.99

    It's amazing that this Dora the Explorer costume actually fits as a cheap baby Halloween costume. It's ten bucks!

    Break out the measuring tape! It's newborn sized (1-6 mos.) at 22-inches around the waist, 23-inches long, and the sleeves are 9-inches.

    The Go, Deigo, Go! cheap baby Halloween costume is also on clearance for $9.99, and is the same 1-6 month old size. My favorite part about the Diego baby costume is the hair!

Need a Cheap Baby Halloween Costume?
Heather's Secret Store #2

Secret Store #2 is aptly named for having the largest collection of Halloween costumes on the Internet. Why is that worth mentioning?

Because large supply means large clearance sections.

Winnie the Pooh = $9.99

    This adorable little jumper is 25" long and 26" across the chest. It's made of soft polyester with snaps on the legs and down the front for quick diaper changes.

    Surprisingly, the matching Eyeore jumper is more expensive! It's $14.99.

Need a Cheap Baby Halloween Costume?
Heather's Secret Store #3

My third favorite place to find great cheap baby costumes is this one, which is interesting because it's not actually a costume store.

I must add a disclaimer to this one, though. I'm currently writing/researching this article at the beginning of August.

I'm not sure if these are going to be the prices in October!

If you see a costume you like, my advice is to grab it now, since I have no idea of this is a "sale" price or the actual price.

I'll keep an eye on it and remove those that cross my $15 threshold, but a few may slip through the cracks in the meantime.

Baby Dragonfly Costume = $14.99

    This dragonfly costume definitely does not look like a cheap baby Halloween costume!

    The ensemble includes the bodysuit (with wings and tail attached), the headpiece with antennae, and non-slip booties.

    This costume is exclusive to my Secret Store #2 and is not found anywhere else!

Brown Tiger Baby Costume = $10.95

    There are few things to note about this cheap baby Halloween costume. As for sizing, read all the reviews before purchasing. Some parents had trouble getting a good fit.

    The fabric is surprisingly thin, best for warm-weather trick-or-treaters. Besides the comfy jumpsuit, it also comes with the plush headpiece and de-clawed mittens.

    If you like this tiger design, you may like the similar baby zebra costume even more. It's also $10.95

Hot Dog Newborn Bunting Costume = $10.95

    Isn't this cheap baby Halloween costume hilarious? I laughed out loud when I saw it.

    The perfect little package for your newborn, as it fits babies up to 16 lbs. Everyone will gush over your baby in this!
