Are you looking for some quick and easy Halloween costume ideas? Here are several you can make using leotards you might already have (or that you need an excuse to get!) plus a little bit of ingenuity and some basic cutting and sewing.


And check out our brand new 2018 Halloween Leotard Collection! Here for a limited time only. Check out this video sneek peek:




Olympic Gymnast: After the amazing performance of the US Women’s team, your gymnast will leap at the chance to dress up like Jade, Morgan, Laurie, Aly, or Simone for Halloween. I love this costume idea because it is SO EASY. Grab a red, white, and blue leo, add sweats and a gold medal, and your gymnast is ready to salute her way around the neighborhood dressed as one of her idols!

Fairy Princess: Here’s something for the littlest gymnast. Pair our Sweet Pea leotard (or even a Mermaid leotard) with wings, wand, and a skirt from the local dollar store, and this tiny mite was ready to go. If your little gymnast is not in the mood to wear pink then check out our Mystique Gymnastics leotards for other colors.

Super Hero: Here’s a fun costume for an older gymnast that is also super easy to create! Our Heroic leotard and gymnastics warmup outfit capris are combined with a cape and eye mask, again from the local dollar store, for a fresh take on being a super hero.

Peacock: Even if you're not super crafty, you can handle this one. Ours turned out really awesome! We started with a turquoise mystique leotard, and some black leggings we already owned. Check Youtube for tutorials on how to make a tulle tutu. There’s are a lot of versions and you are bound to find one that you love.

You can also check out Snowflake Design’s YouTube videos while you are browsing since we all know that watching one video is almost impossible. HINT: If you use glitter tulle don’t construct your skirt at the kitchen table, or in the kitchen, or inside your home. Our kitchen looked like it was attacked by fairies, and we're still finding glitter 2 weeks later!

Sassy Cat and a Bumble Bee: When in doubt, a black leotard makes a great base for a Halloween costume. Add a tail and a kitty mask (or ears and face paint) and you have a sassy black cat that’s ready to celebrate!  Yellow wings, a headband, and a skirt and you have a bee ready to buzz around the neighborhood on Halloween.
