It's rather unfair to restrict Halloween to one day a year. We should really be able to dress in our favorite costumes at any time—at least, kids should be able to, anyway. On Tuesday, August 17, Target is having a one-day sale on costumes that will make so many dress-up dreams come true. With costumes discounted at 40 percent off, you can snap up Halloween gear early and let your kids play superheroes and princesses all year long.

This one-day Target sale includes a lot of the classic Halloween-themed costumes for children, adults, and dogs. Jump on these deals now so that you, your children, and your pets won't get stuck wearing last year's wigs and witch hats when the shelves are empty come late October. You can instead dress up as cuddly llamas, wicked pirates, deadly cute sunflowers, fearless Star Wars characters, and this red squid—and have plenty of money left over for decorations (and buckets upon buckets of candy). 

But as we mentioned before, this sale is an excellent opportunity to build up that year-round dress-up trunk. Dresses fit for Disney princesses, as well as queens, are available at the kind of prices we usually see on November 1. Marvel and DC superheroes, including Batman and Wonder Woman, certainly don't wait around for Halloween to save the day, and neither should your kids. 

Below are some of our favorite picks from Target's one-day Halloween costume sale.
