Halloween is a holiday that everyone enjoys, from kids and teenagers to adults and seniors. So it’s no wonder that on the night that spirits and monsters wander the mortal realm that you’ll see people of all ages wandering the streets in their costumes.

Among the impressive costumes that we’ve seen in the run-up to Halloween this year, we were fascinated by those worn by the kids of celebrities. Babies and toddlers, as it turns out, can look scarily adorable with a little bit of help from their parents. We’ve collected some of the best pictures, so scroll down, upvote your favorites, and leave us a comment about which costumes you thought were the best and why.

Bored Panda contacted Lesley Bannatyne who is known as the foremost expert on Halloween in the entire world. In an interview, she explained how Halloween has changed in the last century and shared her hypotheses about what the holiday might morph into in the future. Scroll down for the full exclusive interview. And we know that you’re eagerly looking forward to Halloween, so have a look through our other articles about the holiday herehere, and here to make the time pass quicker.

Halloween expert Bannatyne told Bored Panda that the holiday is very adaptable and, so, has changed over the years. “Halloween morphed from a large, town-wide celebration in the early 20th century to a holiday focused mainly on children and trick-or-treating mid-century, to a holiday that both adults and children celebrate in dozens of different ways today.”

She continued: “Halloween’s always been adaptable. When some churches objected to Halloween’s presumed devilishness, they created ‘trunk or treat,’ where they could keep their kids in the church’s parking lot and let them go car to car for treats (and could also control images and costumes).”

“When houses were too far apart for kids to walk, people created trick-or-treating hotspots in certain neighborhoods or town centers. Remember Mall-o-weens? Bringing children indoors to go store-to-store was an adaptation for some communities that feared strangers giving treats to their kids,” Bannatyne went into detail about the holiday’s ever-changing face. “Trick-or-treat itself was in part an adaptation created to discourage kids from egging cars and papering neighborhood trees on Halloween night.”

Furthermore, Bored Panda asked Bannatyne about what the future holds for the holiday and, according to her, there are many paths that it could take. “Halloween follows popular culture, so wherever we go, so will the holiday. If we start to cocoon in our homes, private parties will get more popular. If we become even more social media-oriented, more on display, maybe there will be bigger public costumed events that can be broadcast to bigger audiences,” she said.

“Parents don’t normally let their children go out without them on Halloween, so maybe more attractions will erupt for them — whole Halloween towns, a la Disney? If we go anti-commercial and look for a deeper meaning for the night, Halloween could morph into a time to visit our loved ones in the cemetery like our neighbors in Mexico.”

Am I the only one who has legitimately never heard about those 'celebrities'? (Besides the Kardashian one). Am I supposed to know who they are? Did I miss something?)))

I do wish Christians wouldn't get bent out of shape over Hallowe'en being "devilish". To Pagans, it's a time to reflect and remember our honoured and loved dead.
Demi Zwaan
I see you take the definition of celebrity very loosely. I guess d-list counts too.
Foxxy’s #1 fan
I must be living under a rock coz who the hell are most of these people?
Sergio Bicerra
95% of the list must be OP's neighbours or classmates, cause otherwise I have no idea who they are
Loki’s Lil Butter Knife
Who the bloody hell are half these people? Would much prefer to see an article about the history of Halloween or an article on Day of the Dead traditions instead of a bunch minor list celebrities who may have appeared on an episode of Dancing With the Stars.
Kjorn

A dose of reality...
Who cares?????

Who are these people?? ( echoing everyone else.. Ha ha ha).. Are they American celebs? Love the outfits though, very cute..
Natasha Forchione
Celebrities??? I don't see any here.
Lyone Fein
Sad that all these costumes look store bought. I think the best part of Halloween is creating an original costume and making it yourself.

*Bangs Hammer* (I'm not a judge etc) The post author meant *influencers* not *celebrities* but does't wan't blacklash so uses a less "aggravating to pandas term" etc
