It’s almost Halloween! This is one of my favorite days of the year because I love dress-up. Sadly, I’m way too old to be doing that on a regular basis (although I did dress up as Coronation Elsa to take my little Cinderella to a ball at the local Disney Store…). So if my kid gets to dress up for Halloween, we all get to dress up for Halloween. Check some fun family Halloween costume ideas!
Finding Dory: I absolutely love Hank’s costume here. One of my favorite parts about this costume collection is that it’s DIY!
A Pirate’s Life for Me—and my Kids: Gather yer mates and get ready for swashbuckling adventure this Halloween.
Whether the Weather is Good or Bad, It Makes for a Fun Costume: This rainstorm group costume is awesome, and it’s a pretty simple DIY, too! If you’re looking for something more cheerful or colder (hello, snow!), just pick different weather—the forecast is totally up to you!
BYO Fruit: This Pac-Man family is ah-mazing! I love the simplicity of the costumes, and am completely blown away by the awesomeness of the surprise Game Over Ghosts. Give them all the candy!
Second Star to the Right: Take a family trip to Neverland in your best Peter Pan ensemble. This is a fun option because there are so many characters to choose from: Peter, Hook, Wendy, John, Michael, Tinkerbell, the Darlings, the Crocodile, the Lost Boys, Pirates, Nana, Mr. Smee, mermaids… whew!
Build-Your-Own Costume: Whether you’re inspired to go as President Business or a minifigure of your own creation, there is so much fun and potential for creativity in LEGO family costumes!
Take a Trip to Care-A-Lot: These no-sew DIY costumes are adorable! And Care Bears are super on-trend right now, too, so you’ll get cool parent points while enjoying the nostalgia.
Accio Awesome Costumes: I think it’s awesome that this costume incorporates babywearing! The grown-up can be anyone from Professor Sprout to Herbology-loving Neville, and, of course, the costume possibilities for other family members are endless!
Mario Kart: I’ve seen multiple versions of Mario-themed costumes, but this Mario Kart collection is by far my favorite. The addition of the bikes is genius. Totally a family costume contest winner!
Well, I Guess This Is One Way to Get Help with the Chores: I love, love, love this costume! Dress up the adults as, well, their frazzled adult selves, or laundry accessories (detergent, iron, ironing board, clothes line, drying rack…). Or if you don’t have enough kids to make a matching washer-dryer set, just get some bigger boxes!
Enjoy playing a family game of dress up this Halloween!
