Cardi B & Her Daughter Kulture
This year, the “I Like It” rapper chose to match her 2-year-old daughter, Kulture, with their own incredible witch Halloween costumes. Kulture basically looked like a smaller version of her mom in her matching black dress and broomstick, and was serving some serious attitude when Cardi B recorded a video of her, posing for some photos all by herself. “Its Kulture eating up this photoshoot for me!! Sis said ‘hold my broom,’” one fan commented in a video that Cardi retweeted.
“We put a spell on you and now you’re ours,” the “Bodak Yellow” artist, who welcomed her second child with her husband Offset earlier this year, captioned her Halloween post on Instagram.
Kim Kardashian’s oldest child, 8-year-old daughter North West, hung out with her friends this Halloween and dressed like “Cereal Killers,” according to Kardashian’s pal, Tracy Romulus, who posted the photo to her Instagram account.
North and her friends opted for an edgy look this year, choosing to wear ripped up tights, platform boots, studded belts, and multi-colored wigs in a cool and hip kind of costume.
Kardashian and Kanye West’s oldest son, Saint, chose to emulate a figure from the super popular online game, Roblox, with a friend.
Kardashian and West’s youngest daughter, Chicago West, opted for a more traditional Halloween costume compared to her sister, wearing an all black witch costume, complete with a witch hat.
Kardashian’s youngest son, Psalm, chose to be a truck driver this Halloween. The little boy posed for his mom in a photo shared to her Instagram Story of him wearing a cardboard cut out truck attached to his shoulders.
Kylie Jenner, who is currently pregnant with her second child with Travis Scott, was in “full mommy mode” when it came time to trick-or-treating with their 3-year-old daughter, Stormi Webster.
The little girl wore a mermaid costume, all decked out in shells and pearls, while Scott went incognito in a super spooky mask.
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s 3-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, had multiple costumes this Halloween, choosing to dress up as both something scary and something sweet.

“We went tot SPACE tonight!!!!,” Cohen wrote in the caption of the photo.
Mandy Moore’s Little Boy August
When it came time to celebrating her son’s first Halloween, Mandy Moore went all out, opting to dress son, August, in two separate costumes.
August, who Moore and husband, Taylor Goldsmith, have nicknamed “Goosey,” paid homage to his nickname’s namesake by wearing the most adorable goose costume, complete with a stomach full of feathers.
But this This Is Us actress got a little help from the costume department of the show when she had a “#momfail” and ordered the goose costume a little too early and August outgrew it. But luckily, August had another costume to fit into if the Goose costume didn’t go according to plan.
Moore also posted a photo of August, dressed as a piece of nigiri, complete with a ginger and wasabi headband.
“It’s not your first Halloween unless your mom forces you into multiple costumes,” she wrote in the caption of the post. So true.

The mom-of-three opted for her own personal take on the 101 Dalmatians villain, Cruella de Vil, with her youngest son as a Dalmatian, and her daughter as a mini version of herself, of course.
