20 Halloween Costume Ideas Using Gymnastics Leotards

Halloween is just around the corner, so here are 20 Halloween costume ideas using gymnastics leotards, including a gymnast Halloween costume. I love Halloween, but sometimes it can be expensive and time-consuming to come up with a costume. Especially considering the costume you will either wear once while trick-or-treating, or twice if you also wear it to a party. I like the idea of using a gymnastics leotard to put together a costume, because after Halloween you will have a brand new leotard to wear to practice! Some of these costume ideas are more traditional, like a black cat and Elsa from Frozen. Others are more creative like a girl from a rave and a painting. And stay tuned to the end for my favorite costume of the set!

  1. Olympic Gymnast

    Want to keep things simple and dress as a gymnast for Halloween! Here is a great gymnast Halloween costume. Dress like your favorite Olympic gymnast! Whether it’s Simone Biles, Aly Raisman or Gabby Douglas, you can dress like them with patriotic gymnastics leotards.  If it’s Simone Biles you are trying to be, you can wear your hair in a pony tail. If it’s Aly Raisman put your hair in her signature bun.

  2. Jack-O’-Lantern

    Dress like a Jack-O’-Lantern pumpkin for halloween! An easy costume with a Jack-O’-Lantern leotard, pumpkin headband and orange shorts.

  3. Bumble Bee

    This costume would be great for little ones, but really any age can be a bumble bee for Halloween. You could use either a black or a yellow leotard. I think the bee tutu and wing set with the leotard would be enough, but you could also pair it with black and yellow tights or the bumble bee leg warmers.

  4. Ariel

    Dress like Disney’s Ariel, from the classic movie, using a gymnastics leotard!

  5. Elsa from Frozen

    If you have some sewing skills you can easily make a great Elsa Halloween costume using just an Elsa from Frozen leotard and some Frozen fabric. And I think both of these Elsa inspired leotards are so pretty for regular gymnastics practice!

  6. Splatter Paint Party “Rave” Girl

    You could be an 80’s “Rave Girl” with a splatter paint leotard, metallic gymnastics biker shorts and a couple glow necklaces. Easy and inexpensive Halloween costume! Everything can be worn again to the gym, but the necklaces of course 😉

  7. Pageant Princess

    I love how easy this Flower Child costume comes together. And if you like this flower leotard and the green metallic workout shorts then you will have not only a new Halloween costume, but a gymnastics outfit. You can use these silk flower petals to either attach them to your hair, or to a jacket (using safety pins) that you put on over the leotard.

  8. Mermaid

    I’ve loved this mermaid leotard from the first time I saw it months ago. So when I thought up this post about putting together Halloween costumes, I knew there had to be a mermaid one. The tricky part is the tail. When I was searching for costume tails, I saw two options. There are some really cute tails where you can’t move, so if you are looking for a costume to hang out in these are great options. Another is a skirt that kind of looks like a tail like the mermaid skirt I’ve listed below, which would obviously be more ideal for trick or treating.

  9. Black Cat

    The Black Cat is such a classic Halloween costume and easy with a brand new shiny leotard. I love how this Destira black leotard has the rainbow hologram bubbles around the top to add a little edge to your costume! Pair a black leotard with a black tutu skirt, some cat ears and a tail to transform yourself for the night! You can also add a little black eye liner to your face to make whiskers.

  10. Zebra

    Be a Zebra for Halloween with this unique costume! I have to admit it, I kinda love it. Kinda like I love this Zebra leotard.

  11. Skelita Calaveras

    Dress up as a skeleton Day of the Dead style. With leggings, a wig and tutu you will be all set!

  12. Belly Dancer

    Become a tribal dancer for the night with a classic silver white leo with an inexpensive wrap around coin skirt. And if you’re up for getting fancy add a headpiece!

  13. A Tree or Lady of the Forest

    Be a tree or a lady of the forest for Halloween! I love this green strand leotard and you will still be looking great in it long after the holiday. This costume can be put together so inexpensively if you already have brown leggings and you can make a leaf wreath crown of your own!

  14.  A Painting

    I think this is so cute–to be a painting for Halloween. This costume is also super easy! You can be a watercolor art painting by simply pairing a big cardboard frame with a watercolor leotard.

  15. Leopard

    I think this leopard costume is so cute! Perfect for any age. A leopard leotard, black leggings, a headband and mask. So easy and so cute.

  16. Fairy

    All little girls want to be fairies for Halloween right? You can make such a cute fairy costume with a gymnastics leotard. You can use a plain silver metallic leotard, or you could do a light blue or light pink too I think. Another good thing about this costume is that all these fairy princess props will be great for playing dress up later.

  17. Tinkerbell

    I think these Tinkerbell costume ideas are so pretty! And I really like that like color green leotard, which would look great year-round at the gym. This is another Halloween costume idea that would be great for little ones along with older girls. Older girls can glam up Tinkerbell with a little make-up for trick-or-treating with their friends, or a gym Halloween party.

  18. Minnie Mouse

    This Minnie Mouse Halloween costume might be the easiest costume on the list–and one of the cutest! If you already have a black gymnastics leotard then this costume gets even cheaper and easier!

  19. Ladybug

    This Ladybug costume might be one of my favorite looks of the list! I think the Ladybug tutu is so cute and I also love the ladybug face paint which will really take the costume up a notch! And this black and red leotard will be good all year, or you can use a black or red leotard you own.

  20. Flower Child

    I love how easy this Flower Child costume comes together. And if you like this flower leotard and the green metallic workout shorts then you will have not only a new Halloween costume, but a gymnastics outfit. You can use these silk flower petals to either attach them to your hair, or to a jacket (using safety pins) that you put on over the leotard.
