Costumes for A Rainy Halloween

Updated on August 29, 2013

Don't Let Rain Dampen Your Spirits on Halloween Night!

Oh No! Rain on Halloween! What to do? Well, do not panic.

Be prepared. Anticipate that it will be wet on October 31st and buy your kid that cool raincoat you have been meaning to get.

Yes, there are great raincoats that can be costumes, too. If your child is still in elementary school, he just might agree to wear the adorable raincoats (pictured below) as a costume. You just have to be positive in the way you present it your rainy day Halloween costume to your child.

There is a fireman's kit from Amazon I found that could be added to a yellow raincoat that you might already have hanging in a closet. Voila! A Fireman's costume that won't put a damper on your child's trick or treat adventure.

A jellyfish costume for a rainy Halloween is also another good option? Keep on scrolling down the page to find out how you can make one!

You might want these for your Little Fireman on A Rain Soaked October 31st! - A not so scary costume idea suitable for all ages.

This raincoat below looks just like a fireman and will save your child's trick-or-treat adventure. It has several pluses:

It has yellow reflective stripes, a very visible color in the rain and at dusk.

It can be worn again and again, not just for a Halloween Costume.

If your child won't wear the hood that might comes with a Fireman's raincoat, you could add these accessories. The flashlight works!

Make a Jellyfish Costume! - Keep your Treats Dry on Halloween

I saw an idea on Flickr for a jellyfish costume using a clear umbrella. You could tape, glue or staple clear plastic strips all around the umbrella. Maybe even add some curling ribbon in white for a fancy touch. Let your imagination go wild.

And as can be predicted, Martha Stewart has come up with instructions using bubble wrap and a clear umbrella to make a no-sew jellyfish outfit suitable for all ages. Just click Bubble-wrap Jellyfish to see how to create this good thing.

Go ahead and buy this umbrella, you needed one anyway, didn't you?

A perfectly clear umbrella that begs to be decorated. It would make a glorious jelly fish! You could use any colored ribbon you want to be a colorful sea loving creature.

 

This raincoat would make any little lady happy on October 31st!

Either of these Ladybug raincoats is just too cute! Red Rain boots would be ideal. Put a black spot on your child's nose and maybe make some antenna from black pipe cleaners. Keep scrolling down to see the adorable ladybug umbrella that matches this cute themed costume idea for a rainy Halloween!

I read a tip on a blog that you should get a plastic bag for the treats and not use a paper bag. I know, plastic is not so environmentally friendly as a paper bag, but it just might keep the candy from falling out the bottom of a saggy wet bag. Plastic bags can be gathered up at the top to keep the water out, too. A plastic pumpkin with a wide opening would just serve as a bucket.

What tips do you have for making a Soggy Halloween into a Happy Halloween?
