Fall means that Spooky Season is right around the corner, and one of the most exciting and let’s be honest, stressful parts of this spooky holiday is choosing the perfect costume. My kids prefer to pick out their costumes, but there's always a part of me that wants to do matching costumes for the whole family.

  1. Classic Movie Characters

An easy but fun theme is characters from your favorite movies, such as the Incredibles. This theme allows each family member to shine in their unique role. -> Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Violet, Dash, & Jack-Jack

  1. Disney Characters

Take a step into the world of Disney! Disney is a good option because the list of characters to choose from is extensive. A fun idea that I want to do with my family is Moana! My son dressed up as Hei Hei is sure to bring some laughs. -> Moana, Maui, Pua, & Hei Hei

  1. Fantasy World

Bring the feel of Halloween without being spooky with the magical world of fantasy and folklore. A popular fantasy series like Harry Potter is definitely a popular choice. Imagine your family as wizards, witches, and magical creatures!

-> Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, & Hedwig

  1. Decades of fun!

Imagine your little kiddo dressed up like they’re from the groovy ‘70’s and roarin’ ‘20’s! Have fun learning about the decade you choose. One of our favorites is to have a dance party before trick or treating so put on decade appropriate music to set the mood.

-> ‘70’s groovy costume- Dad, Mom, Kid

  1. Foodie Fun

An easy way to bring a light-hearted and humorous approach to Halloween costumes is to dress up as food! You could dress up as your favorite food items from your go-to fast food restaurant. Plus most food item costumes would be easy to diy.

-> Cheeseburger, Fries, Lunchable, Waffles, & a Taco

Family costumes are a great way to celebrate Halloween. They promote togetherness, creativity, and a sense of adventure. With a wide array of theme options it’s hard to not find something that the whole family will enjoy doing. So, grab your family, brainstorm your ideas, and get ready for a spooktacular Halloween full of fun, laughter, and unforgettable moments. Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
