Some costumes are classics. Outfits that are always popular throughout the decades. This is certainly true of pirate costumes, which for the most part, haven’t changed very much at all over the years. But recently, thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, there are new costumes available that are cooler looking than the traditional ones, imitating the look of Johnny Depp’s character.
These are very cool looking, IMHO:

Sometimes the very best Halloween costumes are the simplest ones, and don’t require you to spend a lot of money. A simple face-paint kit and a little effort can go a long way in making Halloween a fun and special day for your kids. You children can help with the makeup, and that way they can be far more creative than if they were to simply put on a pre-made mask and costume.
I think this kit would be appealing to my kids:

Mermaid costumes tend to be form-fitting, partly because the bottom part has to resemble a tail as much as possible. Sometimes the costume comes as a one-piece dress, other times, the top part is either a corset or a bikini top, and the bottom is a fish-tailed skirt. Some of these costumes are very tight around the legs, so if you plan on doing a fair amount of walking, you should make sure you can move around comfortably while wearing one.
Here’s one that caught my eye. I love how shiny this version of the costume is:
