Family Halloween Costume Ideas
If you want to go to a party or trick-or-treating as a family, you might be looking for possible costume ideas. There are a variety of costumes that allow the entire family to fit within a single theme, no matter the number of people in your family or the ages of your kids. Here are just a few of the many fun ideas you have to choose from.
Wizard of Oz
When thinking about a family Halloween costume idea, try to think of any movies or television shows where there are multiple characters you can make a costume out of. The Wizard of Oz is perfect because there are a lot of characters to choose from. Whether you have a small or large family, it should work great! If you have a baby, you can go as Dorothy, your husband can pick either Scarecrow, the Lion or the Tinman, and the baby can be dressed as toto the dog. If you have a dog, he can be Toto, and your kids can dress as other characters or even as the witch to mix it up a little.
A very popular Disney animated movie is Aladdin, even decades later. This is a fun movie when you want to dress your family up as these characters. For example, you can dress as Jasmine and Aladdin, while the kids dress as the Genie and Abu. Some people also like going the other direction and mixing up Aladdin and Jasmine with some of the evil characters like Jafar. This mixes it up and keeps the costumes entertaining. For a dog or baby, you might even find a magic lamp costume.
Superheroes never seem to go out of style, and instead keep getting more and more popular. There are tons of ways to do a superhero family costume. Each person can dress as their own superhero, even if they are supposed to be in different universes. You can go as a superhero group, such as The Avengers, or you can even find a superhero movie with an actual family, like The Incredibles.
Why not go with a Willy Wonky theme? This is a timeless story that creates some really fun costumes. You can go as Willy Wonka, Charlie and some of the other kids, but there are other ways to do it. Perhaps a fun option is to go as Willy Wonka, a Wonka bar and an Oompa Loompa.
Do you dress in family themes? I have even seen Mario characters and even the Scooby Doo family. Have fun and be sure to share your family costume themes below. I’d love to hear about them!
