Halloween 2019 is almost here and if you’re shocked that it’s not actually over yet, you wouldn’t be alone. So far, this spooky season has felt longer than Cher’s three-year-long farewell tour.
I have never seen a longer Halloween in my life.

As we gear up for T-day (Trick or Treat day, obviously!), you’ll inevitably be looking for the best costume. Well, I’m sorry to say that there’s absolutely no point in even trying. We’ve already lost to a bunch of infants.
Because you know what’s infinitely better than an adult in a great Halloween costumes? A tiny baby in a topical Halloween costume, that’s what. And if we’re being completely honest, the youth are really running it this year, because they have live by the perfect cuteness mantra: bright eyes, chubby cheeks, can’t lose.
From Stormi Webster dressing up as her campy mama to a tiny angel whose costume lets everyone know she’s “Good As Hell,” the kids really are alright. At least when it comes to killing it in the costume department.
You only *wish* you could be this cute! Here, some of our fave bbs in Halloween 2019 costumes.
A Clovers Cheerleader
Babies dressing up like their parents might be the best thing that has ever happened to us as a culture, period, especially when said baby is as cute as Gabrielle Union-Wade’s daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade. The look-alike duo channeled Union’s iconic character from Bring It On, with little Kaavia donning a matching green Clovers cheerleading uniform. Considering Kaavia’s known as #ShadyBaby on insta, we’re guessing she has just the right amount of sass to offish be a Clover.

Kylie Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala
Stormi Webster is *the* best Kardashian-Jenner, period, and her Halloween costume just confirms it. Like Union’s daughter, Stormi also chose to stick close to home when it came to her costume inspo, rocking an almost-exact replica of her mom Kylie Jenner’s 2019 Met Gala look.
The fact that Stormi looks like she’s legitimately drowning in purple feathers and could not care less about this outfit is the pièce de résistance.
I asked my son @coochiedeprived what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said “Dad l don’t wanna be Spider-Man l wanna be Nipsey Hussle & celebrate his life instead of mine.” Couldn’t believe that came out his mouth pic.twitter.com/1b8sHnXvPV

Legends recognize legends. And what better way to pay homage to tragically deceased rapper Nipsey Hussle (a.k.a. Ermias Joseph Asghedom) than to have a young prince rep him? Whether or not you actually believe that this little guy said he’d rather be Hussle over Spider-Man doesn’t really matter because he looks seriously boss doing it.
Justin and Hailey Bieber have arguably been the most talked about couple of 2019 so it makes sense that there would be lots of Bieber impersonators this Halloween. And there are a lot of moments to choose from: Justin Bieber crying in a park while on a CitiBike? You can do it. The Simpsons-style cartoon rendering of the Biebers? Would love to see how that comes together. But guaranteed none of them will be as great as this mini-couple’s version of Justin and Hailey Bieber’s wedding day—right down to the gramatically controversial veil.
We (and Hailey Bieber herself) are seriously dying at this cuteness.
This baby just took a DNA test and turns out she’s 100% that baby. While we’re all here for anyone channelling our girl Lizzo (and there are so many iconic lewks to choose from), there’s just something about a wee babe rocking bicycle shorts, a dollar-store recorder and *all* of the attitude. Plus, we’re 100% onboard with self-love from a young age. So, you get it girl!
Damian from Mean Girls
As if this pop culture moment could get any better! You just know those sunglasses are teeny-tiny. *Squeals*
Regardless of how you felt about the finale of Game of Thrones, we can all agree that the Dragon Queen was seriously robbed. Dany went from lovely to lethal in about 0.5 seconds. The only person who can rectify Dany’s tragic arc? A seriously adorbs baby in a blonde wig.
The Yeehaw Agenda
While this wasn’t necessarily a Halloween moment, Kim Kardashian West doesn’t have to look any further than Chicago and Saint’s closets when it comes time to dress them up on October 31. The pair have already channeled the infamous yeehaw agenda to a tee. Also, real talk: where can I find Chi’s outfit to wear everyday?
This is the only remix of “Old Town Road” that should be acknowledged, TBQH.
Dwight from The Office
Who do you know that can rock a tie, corduroy pants, grandpa glasses and slicked down hair and look *this* cute? No one. Because fact: only a baby can make this look work.
Beyoncé ft. Rumi and Sir
This is a Halloween #TBT, but is still iconic in 2019. In 2017, writer Jamilah Lemieux’s daughter nailed her Beyoncé birth announcement costume, right down to the ethereal look on her tiny little face.
The only thing that could have made this better? A BFF or sibling dressed up as the flower wall à la Midsommar.
