Kids Halloween costumes by Ellen DeGeneres

Sarah Palin wigs and Snooki poofs are so last year. But not to worry: Ellen DeGeneres has the perfect, culturally relevant Halloween costume for your little ones.

“Everyone knows that witches and vampires are scary, but here’s something that’s really, really scary,” Ellen says before welcoming Tyler, an 8-year-old dressed as a bed bug, on stage.

Tyler sported bug eyes, which sprouted up from a black headpiece. His head appeared to be tucked into the bed - dust ruffle and all - he wore on his body.

Too scary?

Grab an apron from Chili’s, a hands-free head lamp and a miner’s axe to pull off this feel-good Halloween costume: A Chilean miner, or, as Ellen’s pint-sized guest says, “a miner from Chili’s.”

What about a political costume? Wear a teapot, carry a present, sport a party hat and go as a member of the Tea Party.

What do you think of Ellen’s costume ideas? What creative costumes for kids did the host miss?

    October 8, 2011 I'm so happy you weren't hurt! That looks like rough dgaame (and completely LOL'd at your license plate blackout with sad faces!! Too funny!). I was hit by a drunk driver TWICE! Once time my car flipped three times and was clearly totaled and the other time it wasn't as bad but my car was totaled then too... when a DD hits you (I have found) insurance companies are quick to get you off their back and cut you a check! Hopefully you will get your car looking brand stinkin' new in no time! Keeping my fingers crossed!AND I AM LOVING YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS! Have a very great and relaxing weekend!XOXOStephanie @ Blonde Highlights recently posted..

    I have a feeling Charlie Sheen is going to be a popular choice this year. There's a hilarious spoof account on twitter for anyone who wants a laugh:

    WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I SPOKE AS A CHILD..
    WHEN I WAS A CHILD MY LOVING PARENTS TOOK ME TO CHURCH TO WORSHIP GOD.
    THEN ON HALLOWEEN, THEY DRESSED ME UP LIKE A WITCH.
    ONE DAY I ASKED MY MOTHER, DOES GOD LIKE WITCHES...SHE SAID YES, BUT
    ONLY ON HALLOWEEN, AND FOR YEARS I WOULD DRESS UP LIKE
    A DEMON WITH ALL THE OTHER CHRISTIANS. AS A CHILD
    I SPOKE AS A CHILD. NO MORE LIES

    They are all really neat. One year I was a chicken and my three daughters were eggs with chicks. Halloween and fall are great times of the year. Ellen is great giving ideas to us for children.

    HALLOWEEN, SOMEHOW THE CHRISTIANS HAVE CLEANED IT WHICH BLEACH BUT I STILL SEE THE STAIN.
    ELEMENTS OF THE CUSTOMS CONNECTED WITH HALLOWEEN CAN BE TRACED TO A DRUID CEREMONY IN
    PRE-CHRISTIAN TIMES. THE CELTS HAD FESTIVALS FOR TWO MAJOR GODS-A SUN GOD AND A GOD OF
    THE DEAD . THE MYTHOLOGIES OF ALL THE ANCIENT NATIONS ARE CONNECTED WITH THE EVENTS OF
    THE DELUGE..HALLOWEEN IS A DAY THE WICKED SPIRTS HAVE IN HONOR OF ALL THEIR CHILDREN
    GOD DESTROYED DURING THE FLOOD OF NOAH DAY, REMEMBER THE NEPHILIM?
    WE DRESS OUR KIDS UP LIKE WITCHES, DEMONS, THE WALKING DEAD AND CALL THIS CUTE...
    BUT WHEN THEY START ACTING CRAZIE WE WONDER WHAT HAPPEN...HAVE YOU SEEN THE
    NEW LOOK FOR THE NEW SUPERMAN? HAVE YOU EVER WONDER WHY
    HE LOOK SO DARK AND EVIL? I USED TO GO ALONG WITH THE LIE, BUT LIFE IS TOOO SHORT
    AND THE REMAINING OF MY LIFE I WILL TELL THE TRUTH....

    They didn't even mention that the kid sanding closest to her is an "Eye Pad". That's clever too! I can't tell what the kid in white next to him is supposed to be though. :(

    @Frank- lol laugh it off Frank. This dude is hurling insults on a blog about halloween costumes on Ellen. The words Pathetic and Idiot don't even begin to cover it. And it wasn't even a semi-decent insult, it was pretty stale.

    trolls make me laugh, they think they're all clever but really it just makes the rest of us aware of how sad their life must be. Sucks to be them.

      Agreed. You'd have to have the mentality of a 10 year old to think schoolyard insults over the web are funny to begin with.

      Oh, what a devestating insult that is – 'fairy'. Sad little troll.

      It wasn't an insult, my darling Frankie, it was a costume suggestion for you.

    You are the worst troll on this blog. But I'm sure that's a compliment to you. BORING.
