10 Fun Family Halloween Costumes

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!

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!

Yes, I totally spent an evening running around in a granny nightgown from Macy’s.

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!

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!

Christina lives in Northwest Illinois with her husband, daughter, and two English Springer Spaniels. Before becoming a reluctant stay-at-home mom, she worked in a variety of customer-service-oriented jobs while dreaming of living in the lap of luxury as a housewife. Unfortunately, having a child threw a wrench in Christina’s plan to do nothing but eat bonbons while lounging in the Jacuzzi reading all day. Now, she spends her time looking for fun activities and crafts for her daughter and easy-to-prepare meals for her family, while trying not to land the kid in therapy when she grows up. Christina volunteers at her local library, and does both volunteer and paid work as a sexuality educator. She loves to read, and to learn about–and share–new products and resources.
