It’s understandable to cringe at the idea of shelling out money year after year for a costume (however adorable) they’ll wear only once—so we’ve searched high and low for costumes that will get tons of play, even after Halloween has come and gone. Whether it becomes a treasured staple in his dress-up box or her go-to outfit for a trip to the grocery store, this collection of hoodies, gowns, hats, and wings will surely be worn to shreds by the time your kid grows out of them. Flip through the album below to see them all.
