Kmart is Halloween Central! – Frugal Novice

Kmart is Halloween Central!

Note: We received costumes to facilitate our review. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are my own.

Can you believe Halloween is in just a few weeks? I’m still slightly in denial that it’s already October (90 degree temps in Texas might contribute to that!) but we have already gotten the kids’ Halloween costumes, so I feel like we’re on top of things. With three kids, finding costumes that fit their interests and are affordable can be a challenge. Thankfully we’ve discovered that Kmart is a perfect one-stop shop for all things Halloween!

J, our 7-year-old, is into all things Pokemon, so it was a no-brainer for him; he decided to be Ash, the Pokemon trainer. He loves his costume; it came with a hat and gloves along with the shirt and pants, and he can’t wait to wear it! He even pulled out some Pokemon toys to complement the look.






C, our 5-year-old, loves Skylanders – the boys just got the new Trap Team game, so it’s especially on his mind right now! He got the Spyro costume – and boy is it a hit with him!


He thinks the hands and feet that come with it make it extra cool, and he loves it with and without the mask.





E, who’s 2, isn’t at the age yet where she requests certain costumes, so I had a lot of fun picking out this absolutely adorable strawberry costume for her.



I’ll plan to get her some green tights or leggings to wear with the costume, but since Halloween in Texas is still a pretty warm time, a sleeveless costume is great. If it does get cool, it’ll be easy to add a shirt underneath. Isn’t it SO cute, though? I love the shape of it, and the minky fabric. E’s favorite part of the whole thing was that it came with “shoes”, but I think the headband is pretty precious too!

No matter what kind of costume you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it at Kmart. They’re home to a broad collection of licensed costumes for kids and adults including top options from SpidermanMonsters HighTransformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And this year, Kmart is introducing a new line of costumes for girls from Totally Ghoul that offer 3-in-1 styles. For the price of one costume ($29.99) your daughter can have three options perfect for school, a party and trick-or-treating! As someone who loves a good bargain, a 3-in-1 costume is pretty awesome!

For those actually in charge of party planning Kmart also has decorations for both indoor and outdoor to make your house the creepiest on the block. Popular Halloween decor items this year include the Lemax Spooky Town Collection – now 25 percent off (yay, love a good sale!), and new decorations from Totally Ghoul including the Clown Playing Banjo Skeleton.

Don’t wait any longer – get ready for Halloween today! You can shop online at Kmart and have things shipped to you, or you can have things sent to your local Kmart location. And of course you can always do your shopping at your Kmart, too!

Keep up with Kmart on Facebook & Twitter, too!

    All those costumes are adorable!!! Great picks!

  • Cathy @ Our Mini Family October 10, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Love the Ash costume! If your kid(s) like Pokemon and you allow them to play games on like the iPad or computer, you should check out the Pokemon app! It’s quite fun, actually. My husband and I play lol

      Thanks for letting me know, Cathy – they love playing on the iPad but we had no idea there was a Pokemon app. I’ll have to go download it today!

    Great costumes! I especially love the strawberry one. It is just so adorable. I was actually thinking about dressing my 16 month old up as a strawberry for Halloween this year, and this costume would be so great! She’d probably have to wear some green leggings and a red turtle neck under it though, as we live in Maine, and it’s a bit cold now!

  • Stefany October 10, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    Can I tell you how happy you have made me?!? My son wants to be Ash Ketchum too and I was not really feeling making a costume for him!

  • Nolie October 10, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    I hid the Ash costume from my son when we were shopping online. His pokemon obsession is crazy.

  • Jennifer Williams October 10, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    My favorite is the Spyro costume. My kids used to play that game all the time.

  • Jodi @ A Mom Having Fun October 11, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    Those are such adorable costumes. The Spyro costume is really cute! However, I love the Strawberry costume! I have to say I love her thighs – I just want to squeeze them! lol
