is to love it. The Australian cartoon series has somehow found a way to capture the magic of pretend through a family of Blue Heeler dogs: mom Chilli, dad Bandit, and their two daughters, Bluey Bingo and Bluey. And it’s as sweet and funny for parents as it is for kids. Naturally, that means this runaway hit will be the go-to costume come All Hallow’s Eve. And you can score a Bluey Halloween costume in advance on these sites.
What you’ll find here are various riffs on jumpsuits with matching masks. Some are super oversized head coverings, others just go over the eyes, so you can pick and choose what your child will tolerate while racing through the neighborhood trick-or-treating.
Not surprisingly, smart makers over on Etsy have also jumped on the
Bluey bandwagon and applied their crafting prowess to a variety of riffs on the cute pups.
To really embody the right Bluey attitude, grab one of these costumes and help your child work on their Aussie accent.
1 ‘Bluey’ Bandit and Chilli onesies for adults
These cozy adult size “Bluey” costumes are simple, warm, and perfect for parents. You can even rewear them anytime you want to be cozy on the couch to lay, devouring sweets from trick-or-treating and marathon-watching your child’s favorite Blue Heeler on the screen. It really is the type of Halloween costume that will not be relegated to the Halloween box, only to be dusted off every October 1.
2 Bluey onesies for children and babies
This toddler Bluey costume has all the same benefits as the adult sizes — it’s warm, comfortable and your child can wear them again and again. It also comes in a
Bingo version. If you’re trying to make a group costume of “Bluey” characters, then these are perfect because they match the aforementioned adult sizes. They’re all from Spirit Halloween, which makes it so much easier to order. 3 A Bluey dress
If you child loves wearing dresses, this Bluey-themed dress for toddlers can’t be beat. Instead of legs, it has a multi-colored fluffly skirt that hits just above the knees, a bow at the waist, and of course the cutest puppy tail at the back. It comes in a
Bingo version as well. 4 Bluey face masks for kids and adults
If you’re going the DIY route this Halloween, but don’t think you can master an intricate
Bluey or Bandit mask, look no further. These masks come in both child and adult sizes. These have the classic made-from-scratch Halloween look that would go perfectly with a homemade Bluey-themed costume. 5 Baby Bingo costume
I have a feeling that this Halloween there will be a lot of younger siblings relegated to
Bingo costumes without too much say in the matter (though hopefully they’re Heeler pup fans too). This costume is a super soft one-piece jumpsuit, zips up the back and is made from a heavy polyester. It comes in a baby Bluey version as well and it’s warm enough for trick-or-treating on a cool night. The tail is attached so there’s no concern about losing it, and — because this is an officially-licensed Bluey product — the face on the separate headpiece, which looks like a hood, is super accurate and oh-so cute. 6 Knitted Bluey beanie hat for babies, kids, and adults
Don’t want to spend a ton of money on a plush Bluey costume for your baby? Here’s an easy solution: A hand-crocheted
Bluey knit cap made to order. You could honestly forgo the rest of a costume all together since this darling toque says it all. Or, if you want to complete the look, just pop your kiddo in a simple blue onesie or footie pajamas. Since they are made to order, you just have to tell the seller what size you want. 7 One-piece Bluey costume for little kids
One of the most important characteristics of a great costume is that it's flexible and easy to move in. A multilayered witch costume complete with a skirt, shawl, broom, and hat? Not so much. A comfortable, one-piece Bluey costume? Perfection. This onesie has an attached plush tail, and it closes up the back with Velcro fasteners for ease getting in and out; it’s designed with kids ages 3-5 in mind. It’s also slightly less warm than other onesie options, so it’s great for if you live in a warmer climate.
There are no gloves or booties either, making this costume a breeze when it comes to putting on shoes (opt for blue shoes and socks, if possible). The felt mask fits gently around the head with some stretchy elastic, so kids can easily take it on and off. This is an officially-licensed Bluey product, too, meaning it’s recommended on their website, though you’ll buy this
Bluey Halloween costume through Kmart. 8 Bluey costume for kids
Some Bluey costumes are just blue jumpsuits. Any self-respecting
Bluey fan will know in minutes that’s not a true blue rendition of this beloved character — not the case with this Bluey suit. The dog’s signature tail and side markings are all present and accounted for in this onesie, not to mention Bluey’s cream tummy. And to make this costume all the more outrageous, the pup’s head is featured on a giant oversized hat that straps under the chin with some Velcro. Hands and feet are uncovered so kids can easily carry a trick-or-treat bag and a long tail hangs off the back. 9 Hooded Bluey onesie for kids
Bluey Halloween costume your little one will actually wear again— in fact, the trouble here will be convincing them to wear anything else. The cute hood features Bluey’s face and ears, making this a good mask-free option for kids who don’t like the feeling of having something on their face. These are technically pajamas, and they’re made of comfortable 100% polyester fleece material. The zip up the front makes bathroom breaks as easy as they can be in a one-piece. 10 A three-piece Bluey costume for kids
Bluey costume from Party City is three separate pieces: A jumpsuit, a tail, and a headpiece with Velcro closure. The suit has elastic cuffs and hook-and-loop closures in the back (which may require a little assistance getting in and out of). The cute hat has plush features to give it a 3D look. The exact same style is available in a Bingo costume too. 11 A Bingo costume for kids
Some kids prefer the younger Heeler pup, which is good because in addition to Bluey costumes, there are plenty of
Bingo Halloween costumes to choose from, too. This jumpsuit has Bingo’s name written on the chest, so anyone who isn’t familiar with the show will still know who your little one is dressed as (sparing your kid the Halloween agony of having to explain). This is a jersey, cotton, poly blend, and all the features including Bingo’s face and tail are 2D, making them easier to navigate. The cute hood and zip-up front offer ease and comfort when it comes to getting in and out of this.
With costumes in hand, you can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing your
Bluey-loving fam is covered for Halloween.
