Octopus Baby Costume Looks Both Adorable and Terrifying

Is it too early to shop for Halloween costumes? Even if it is, you could buy this one in time to celebrate World Octopus Day, which falls a few weeks earlier on October 8. Get it? You know, because octopuses have eight arms. Anyway, dressing your baby up as an octopus is appropriate for all occasions as far as we’re concerned. Just look at those plush pink arms and cozy hood. Households with ginger cats could pair this look with their cat to make Goose the Flerken from Captain Marvel costume. This fantastic octopus costume is for sale at Walmart and will set you back $57. But just think, the social media posts will be priceless.

We saw this amazing Halloween costume thanks to Technabob. I especially enjoy the choice to include photos of the model baby clearly horrified with its plush many-legged prison. The suit only comes in pink, no mention of the color-changing abilities that real octopus have. Camouflaged human babies probably aren’t a good idea after all. It would be weird enough to watch this wriggle through your house as the baby crawls from room to room. Just imagine if it also blended into the floor or the kitchen cabinets.

We can’t wait to see everyone’s costumes come Halloween, whether it’s pop culture or animal-related. Yes please to everything from babies dressed as Baby Yoda to adults in an inflatable Spider-Rex costumes. It’s nice to know that everyone can get dressed up for the season.

Unlike babies, there’s no shortage of things an octopus can do. They are some of the smartest creatures on the planet. Whether it’s a picture of a real octopus doing something cool or a baby dressed as one, we love that octo-content.
