Imagining the Future

Occupation-Inspired Halloween Costumes

Our favorite occupation-themed Mighty Girl costumes from our own costume collection and photos of Mighty Girls in costume shared by our community!

Halloween dress-up fun gives kids a wonderful opportunity to imagine themselves in any number of roles, such as pursuing a future career aspiration! Whether she sees herself as a doctor, firefighter, ballerina, or scientist, she can "try on" her dream job for a night -- and perhaps even spark an interest that will last a lifetime.

In today's blog post, we share some of our favorite occupation-themed costumes, including a number from A Mighty Girl's costume collection such as veterinarian, astronaut, and chef costumes. Of course, many Mighty Girls enjoy the challenge of creating their own costume, so in the second section, we highlight a few of our favorite costumes inspired by careers that community members have shared with us in previous years!

For even more costume inspiration on themes ranging from superheroes to animals, you'll find hundreds of costumes for all ages from infants through adults in our Girl Empowerment Halloween Costume Guide.

Mighty Girls in Costume from Our Community

Veterinarian

Satya is five years old and loves animals. She was excited to carry around one of her stuffed animals with her on Halloween aka her patient.

Biologist

My daughter wanted to be a biologist for Halloween, specifically a "scientist who studies butterflies". She loves it and had so much fun helping me put it all together.

Farmer/Tractor Driver

My daughter, Eve, who will be 2 in December, loves vehicles and has a special obsession with John Deere. So we went as farmers. She also insisted on wearing her surfing shoes:)

Firefighter

We had a mother/daughter duo costume as Firefighters! At age 2 1/2 Katherine didn't notice when people said "what a cute fireman'. My simple reply was "yes, she is a cute Firefighter"! Mighty Girl Power!

Space Shuttle Operator

Abigail (age 9) has attended camp Kennedy Space Center for 2 years. This year's costume is inspired by her dream job, Space Shuttle Systems Operator.

President of the United States

Charlotte, 3 years old, officially announcing her candidacy for President! #2048
Thank you a mighty girl for all the inspiration!

Pediatric Gastroenterologist

Lyla - age 7. She decided to dress as her future self - a pediatric gastroenterologist. She knows exactly what this is because she's had one she's looked up to since she was 8 months old. And, she can say pediatric gastroenterologist faster than most adults can say, "Doctor".

UPS Girl

Vivienne (2 years old) loves to see the big brown UPS truck when it pulls onto our street. And she loves our UPS delivery gal. She insisted being a UPS worker and "delivering" candy to all the trick-or-treaters who can to our door.

CERN Nuclear Scientist

My 2-year-old daughter dressed up as a CERN "nuclear scientist in training"

Pilot Lucy

Lucy, 7, dreams of becoming an Airline Pilot, so this year, there was only one choice of costume :)

Mini Excavator

Madison, 2 1/2 years old, loves looking at construction sites and points out all of the excavators we see! An excavator was the 1st thing she thought of when we asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween!

Police Officer

Isabelle, who is 5, choose to be a police officer for Halloween. We have a neighbor who is a Highway Patrol Officer. Isabelle also enjoys pretending to write her sister tickets for speeding on her bike.

Mighty Robot Scientist

Cecilia, age 6, dreams of making and designing robots. She already has a full design sketchbook! She came up with this Robot Scientist costume all on her own, and she designed her own robot teeshirt, visible under her lab coat. As she says, "Robots are awesome, and they're for everybody! When I grow up I'm going to make them." You go, my wonderful Mighty Girl, you GO!

Commander

Anna's Navy officer costume mirrors her dream job when she's grown up: Navy Marine Biologist. Original plan was a scientist costume, but when her brother got his special forces costume, he convinced her to use his Navy costume from last year so she "could be the commander back at headquarters". So she kinda combined ideas. :)
