Monster High Costume Party - The TomKat Studio
When Monster High asked me to style a party for Halloween, you know I jumped at the opportunity! The best part was telling my daughter, Kate the news that we would be hosting an early Halloween party for her and her friends! She had a hard time choosing which character costume to wear, but she was the cutest Skelita ever!

We are so excited to share ideas and tips with you today for hosting your own Monster High Halloween Party! From free printable designs to party decor ideas and costume + makeup inspiration, you’ll find everything you need to create an awesome Halloween celebration at home! You’ll see the phrase “How Do You Boo” throughout the party and I absolutely love the meaning behind it…

Monster High empowers fans everywhere to embrace their individuality and that being different is what actually unites us –that’s how we BOO!

Tip #6: Plastic spiders can be used throughout the party to add a little creepiness. Wash them first, then stick on cupcakes! You can also make this easy cookie cake and fill the inside with more spiders!

    Awesome party! We had a monster high New Year’s Eve party a couple of years ago. I Boo as much as possible!

  2. Tina Dahl says:

    I BOO by decorating my house and handing out lots of candy to all the neighbor kids. I also BOO at my kid’s school by hosting by of their classroom Halloween parties. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

    Great job Kim…super fabulous printable and the Becki did an amazing job on the hair and makeup. Love how you styled the black with the awesome pops of bright colors. Awesome….as usual! XOXO!

  3. Kim,
    This is so much better than the average black and orange Halloween party. The colors pop and the girls look like they are having a blast. I’m going to keep this in my arsenal for my nieces. Give them a couple years and they will be ready to party like the big girls.

  4. Hannah says:

    Hi Kim

    This is such a fabulous party idea. My daughter loves monster high and so this end of October we will be celebrating her birthday with a Spa – monster high theme party as she have requested. She chose to be Draculaura and that’s how we boo?

  5. Aw so cute! I love all the bright colors! We did MH for like two years in a row for Halloween for my daughter – such a popular theme! We’re gonna watch that movie this weekend too!

  6. Jennie Roesler says:

    Hi Kim,
    What a fabulous party you put together! My daughter just had a Monster High birthday party in September, and we are still into Monster High everything! Such fun colors!
    This year, we are getting our BOO on by painting and carving pumpkins, going to some pumpkins fields, drinking lots of hot apple cider, and of corse trick-or-treating in the Abbey Bominable costume. :).
    Thanks for the great party pictures!

  7. Rachel G. says:

    OH my gosh what an adorable party! My daughter is in love with Monster High. We Boo by decorating the house and carving pumpkins. My daughter was Spectra last year, so she would be in heaven with your party!

  8. Susan Miller says:

    This party idea is awesome. My middle daughter loves Monster High and has a couple of the costumes. Last year, she was Jinafire. My girls love dressing up and we usually go to Disney World for the Halloween party each year on fall break. That’s how we Boo.

  9. Nicole Doucette says:

    I Boo by expressing my creativity for my daughter – She will love this party idea!

  10. Rebecca Thompson says:

    I believe that this Monster High party is if off the fang. I think that adding the little plastic spiders in different places is fun. I like the funky color scheme. It is a great idea to display the Monster High dolls with the decorations and treats.

    I feel that any Monster High fan would have fun dressing up in the costumes for Halloween. I really like the costumes of Abbey Bominable and Rochelle Goyle.

    I must say that this a Boo idea for Halloween and Monster High fans.

  11. Michelle says:

    How cute! This is such a fun idea and I love all the tips you included. Great idea to actually use the dolls in the display!

    xo – Michelle

  12. Khris says:

    Expressing myself through art and creativity is how I boo. ?
    This is a great way to throw a monster high Halloween party and hey, I might just use some inspiration from this to throw my dream masquerade 21st party.

  13. Aurora says:

    This is such a cute party, and perfect inspiration for my daughters birthday party in a few months. My daughter definitely knows how to boo! She is such an individual, confident in herself and loves and accepts everyone…some of my most favorite things about her! She expresses her individuality especially through her fashion choices and creativity in all she does. And she loooves Monster High! Thanks for providing beautiful inspiration in all you do!

  14. Kelly Putzke says:

    I “boo” the Trick or Treaters with lots of candy and end up getting lots of cheers!!!

  20. Dawn T. says:

    Cute party! My daughter loves Monster High and she boo’d as Skelita last year! I love MH’s messages about embracing friendship, individuality and differences. That’s something to boo about!

  21. Leslie says:

    Hi Kim! I absolute love this party! I almost switched my daughters costume after seeing these. I will definitely be keeping it in mind for next year ?!
    I BOO by decorating the house with friendly but ghoulish items. I BOO by being involved with my daughters class party and bringing Halloween cupcakes and goodie bags, and I BOO by trick or treating with my daughters, husband, and my sister and her daughter! It’s a family thing…we love Halloween! Happy Booing!!!

  22. Sara says:

    My girls love Monster High and this party is very cute! My family “boos” by not worrying so much about what others think and doing the things that we enjoy. My two daughters are interested in very girly things such as Monster High, My Little Pony, etc… but also love super heroes, Star Wars and other typical “boy” things. They are both dressing up as “boy” characters, Storm Troopers for Halloween. I love that they are just being themselves without a care in the world about other’s opinions as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else.

  23. Rachael says:

    We BOO by carving pumpkins in our costumes!

  24. poppys mama says:

    Amazing party! My daughter is monster high obsessed so she would love this!! Poppy BOOs by been the most unique ghoul i know after 4 stomach operations shes the ultimate frankie stein with her bravery scars!! Her favourate ghoulfriend changes everyday but she will always be mine! X

  25. Christina M says:

    Great party!!! We just had my daughter’s 7th birthday party and it was Monster High themed. 🙂 We BOO by fitting in as much spooky fun throughout the month that we can before getting together with our friends for trick or treating!

  26. Ema says:

    What a great party you threw for your daughter and her friends! My daughter loves Monster High too! We boo by going to pumpkin patches, decorating pumpkins and our house, and “Boo-ing” our neighbors by ding-dong ditching Halloween treats for their whole family in cute buckets. I love your blog and getting ideas for our parties!

  27. Anissa Willis says:

    Such an adorable party and love all the details! We are celebrating Halloween by going to Disney! We are also getting our “Boo” on by doing corn maizes, pumpkin carving and hosting a spooktacular party!

  28. Taryn T. says:

    After reading this post, my Boo doesn’t add up! We attend an annual Halloween party, trick or treat in the neighborhood- over 400 houses, and watch a scary (family) movie a night!

  29. Lily Salazar says:


    My daughter, Bella is 6 and is the biggest MH fan! She loves to bake and invite friends over. She even made her own MH Cake!

  30. Ali says:

    Oh so I can’t give a differing opinion or my comment gets deleted. Nice.

  31. Lorell says:

    Adorable! We BOO by using funky colors, not only black and orange!

  32. Stephanie Grant says:

    I love Monster High! I Boo by wearing spooky dark makeup during this time of year (okay really it’s year around if I’m honest lol) and I love to wear skull themed clothing!

  33. This paragraph is truly a fastidious one it assists new
    net people, who are wishing in favor of blogging.

  34. always i used to read smaller posts which also clear their
    motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading now.

  35. erlinda says:

    omg! so cute.. booalious
    bummer that this was years ago would be an awesome win for my 6 years old.
