Looking at the aisles of costume stores, boys may feel like they're only supposed to dress up monsters or superheroes for Halloween. But as the moms and dads of sons in the HuffPost Parents Facebook community show, little boys have wild imaginations that go beyond Batman. Some boys choose to dress up as surgeons or animals, while others may want to be TV or movie characters.

Here are 31 creative costumes from HuffPost readers' sons -- ranging from pirate to Oompa Loompa to Princess Elsa. Because after all, boys like "Frozen," too.
