It’s time for Catholic Deals‘ annual guide to purchasing saint costumes for All Saints Day celebrations! Whether you’re looking for a simple tunic or props for your DIY costume or would like to purchase a full costume ready to wear, there is an item in this post for you!

Here you’ll find an extensive list of costumes that you can personalize with appropriate symbols of your child’s chosen saint.  A few are designed to be saint costumes, and many more are generic costumes that are easily converted into saints.  

Don’t miss the “accessories” section at the end, where I list many individual pieces and props that can be mixed and matched.

I have organized the costumes in the following categories: Biblical/Early Christian Saints, Religious Saints, Knight/Soldier Saints, Royal Saints, and Lay Saints.

In the main section, all of the costumes and costume pieces are $25 or under!  However, in the end, I also included a special section of beautiful, handmade complete saint costumes with higher prices.

So without further ado . . . let the saints begin!

Biblical/Early Christian Saints

  (any of the apostles, early martyrs, Our Lady, etc.)

Oriental Trading has basic robes and veils in all colors and both kid and adult sizes.

 Prices start at just $7.50 for a basic kid’s robe and $3.25 for a veil.  These are such great basics to have in your costume chest!

This Child’s Deluxe Mary Costume is $15 from Oriental Trading.

As a final note, keep in mind that prices of many costumes, especially the ones on Amazon, will continue to fluctuate until Halloween.  Prices will be cheapest in mid to late October, but the selection will be more limited.  So if you see one you like that is currently at a good price, order now!

Also, if you choose to purchase a handmade costume from one of these wonderful Etsy sellers, order right away, as they can only take a certain number of orders and may soon hit their limits.

Happy saint costume planning!
