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 $20 or under! However, at 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.
This Kids Moses Costume is just $10-$13, depending on size, with free shipping (tablet and beard not included). This would totally work for any apostle or Biblical saint.
Love this Small Boys Roman Emperor Costume for just $7.89 This would be great for lots of early Christian martyrs.
This Helen of Troy Costume would also be great for early Christian martyrs, not to mention St. Helen! It’s only $9.11.
This elegant Girls Grecian costume is just $8.00 plus $3.00 shipping.
Also, this angel costume is as low as $7.62. It does not come with the wings.
Sometimes you just want an easy, complete nun costume. This Nun Costume runs $19.99 and up, but you have a full costume ready to go!
This Child Monk Costume looks very Franciscan! It is around $15, and it includes the belt.
I also found this adorable priest costume for $14.99 plus $5.22 shipping.
I kind of hate to publish the picture of this costume, but it is just a hooded black robe with a sash for under $10, so it would make a great religious habit!
You know who this Prisoner Costume is perfect for – St. Maximilan Kolbe! And it’s just $7.
Knight/Soldier Saints (St. George, St. Michael, St. Martin of Tours, St. Joan of Arc, etc.)
This Rubies Medieval Lord Child Costume is around $12 with free shipping. It comes with a tunic, hood with cowl, and waist sash.
I love that this Silver Knight Costume has a cross. It’s currently $10-$12 plus shipping.
I also love this simple Knight Chainmail Tunic for just $6.95!
If your saint is a Roman soldier, check out this cool Roman Soldier Costume for around $18 with free shipping. It includes the tunic, armor, cape, and wrist cuffs, but not the shin guards.
This Gladiator Costume for $15-$18 would also be great for Roman solider saints or St. Michael.
Royal Saints (St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Isabelle of Portugal, St. Margaret of Scotland, St. Hedwig, St. Henry, St. Louis, etc.)
For queen and princess saints, you want a princess dress that is more historical than fairytale, such as this lovely Medieval Princess Costume, which is priced under $10.
Another option is this regal Lady of the Palace Kids Costume for $15-$20.
I love this Renaissance Faire Juliet Dress, which comes with a headpiece and is currently $12.70.
This pretty Princess Dress comes with the flower crown, and some sizes are only $10.
And this sweet, simple toddler Princess Dress is $8.99.
This Girls Tudor Costume for $9.99 could also serve a similar purpose.
I also love this sweet little Peasant Girl Costume for $13.99.
For St. Kateri, this Native American Princess Costume is around $10 with free shipping on Amazon.
And St. Louis Martin could wear this Abraham Lincoln costume, which is around $10.
Go authentic with this hilarious Child’s Brown Beard which is now just $2.47 from Oriental Trading.
Or you could get this handmade cloak for $12.50, which also comes in a range of colors.
This Shepherd’s Crook for $5.25 comes apart for storage; this would be perfect for either a bishop or for an actual shepherd saint.
Finally, if you are willing to pay a little more, there are a few shops where you can purchase beautiful handmade saint costumes. These tend to run in the range of $40-$80, but there are some beautiful choices out there. If you’re interested in one of these, check out the following:
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 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.
