Baby Halloween Costumes Are Already Here, And They're Too Adorable

Shut up and take our money.

The dwindling days of summer can mean a lot of things to different people.

Back-to-school shopping, for one. The return of the PSL. Looking forward to cozy sweaters, hot cider, and wholesome fall family activities (Lo! Is that a pumpkin patch in the distance?).

But for some people, the promise of autumn means one thing, and one thing only: baby Halloween costumes. Planning them, creating or buying them, setting up photo shoots showcasing them, getting your child to actually wear them — or simply looking up adorable photos of them, whether you have a child or not.

And guys, we have great news: some stores are already carrying their baby Halloween costumes, and this year's are TOO MUCH. TOO MUCH, WE TELL YOU! Prepare your "aww" reflex and sit back for some of the cutest costumes you can throw your money at. Like, actually, just take all our money.
