Hansel and Gretel Costumes for Kids and Adults

Updated on October 1, 2014

Hansel and Gretel Costumes for Halloween 2014

If you're looking for Hansel and Gretel costumes for Halloween this year, you've come to the right place! Hansel and Gretel costumes are available for both girls, boys and adults. While green and brown are traditional Hansel and Gretel costume colors, there are a bunch of different color options, too. I love these costumes--there's something so innocent about them; I'm highly considering dressing up my son as Hansel this Halloween.

No matter if you are shopping for Halloween or any time of the year, we have the perfect Hansel and Gretel costume for you or your children.

Costume from Amazon.

Gretal Costume for Girls

If you're looking for a cute Gretel costume for Halloween (or any time of the year), this is a great pink and green option. It fits girls size 4-14--some of the reviewers say that it runs a tad small, so be sure to order one size up, especially if your child is in between sizes.

Just add a pair of tights and brown shoes and you are done! This costume looks especially cute if your little girl can wear braids!

Of course, don't forget the bread that Hansel and Gretel carried, too! This would make for a cute costume for a little girl and her brother (and since I only have the "brother", I'll have to borrow a neighbor-child to pull that duo off!).


Boys' Hansel Costume

If Hansel costumes for boys are what you're looking for, this is a top pick. I love that green shorts with the yellow trim! This Hansel costume set always comes complete with the white shirt and even the hat!

Just add some calf-length socks and a pair of shoes, and he's all set for Halloween!

We live in a hot climate, so I love that this costume looks pretty cute even with sandal-type shoes that I likely have laying around the house.

Even the littlest guy can get in on the action with this adorable ensemble.


Gretel Costume for Adults - Women's Gretel Halloween costume

This is a great Gretel costume for the adult set. It's also very highly-rated with a ton of reviews!

This Dirndl costume comes with everything you see here, down to the hair bows and petticoat! Just add a pair of tights (knee high or otherwise) to complete this great Gretel Halloween costume.

This also would make a great Bavarian Girl costume buy adding a toy beer stein.

If you want more "oomph" on the skirt, I think it would be easy to add a petticoat underneath to give it even more structure.

Mens' Hansel Costume

This is a classic Hansel (or Bavarian) costume for men -- it would complement any Gretel costume to make a wonderful Hansel and Gretel costume pair!

This costume includes faux suede shorts and suspenders! You just need to add a plain white shirt underneath (and socks and shoes of course) to complete this Hansel costume. Perfect for Halloween or even Oktoberfest!

      Gretel is really cute. In fact when I sewed, I made a few dresses like that with the lace-up front.

      I remember many years ago being Heidi in a school production and my costume looked very similar to Gretels. These Hansel and Gretel Costumes would be great for a school play or halloween
