Halloween is always a fun holiday because of the costumes, but have you ever dressed up in a theme as a family? We love the adorable trend of family-themed Halloween costumes, so we’ve highlighted a few of our favorites below.
The Wizard of Oz
Always a family favorite, The Wizard of Oz is a timeless movie with a variety of great characters to choose from for costumes. Go with the typical foursome of Dorothy, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow, or take the dark side as the Wicked Witch and her flying monkeys. If you have a large family, incorporate Auntie Em, Toto, munchkins or the Wizard himself.
Kids and adults alike love the movie Despicable Me and it’s a great option for a family costume. Whether you choose to go as Gru and the minions or his three adorable daughters, this simple idea is easy to execute with a little creativity… just don’t forget the fluffy unicorn!
Another classic tale that works great for Halloween is Peter Pan. With loveable characters like Wendy, John and Michael; hilarious villains like Captain Hook, Smee and the Alligator; the heroes Peter Pan and Tinkerbell; or the rough and tumble Lost Boys, the options are endless.
This simple costume idea is a great way to stick to a theme while also infusing the personality of each family member. Dress in blue from head to toe with white hats and decorate your shirts however you please. Girls can incorporate a bright yellow flower or wig for a fun touch.
No matter who your favorite superhero is, you and your family can take on the world with this adventurous theme. Stick with comic book brands like Marvel or DC, mix it up with Disney heroes like The Incredibles or go retro with a Power Rangers or Ghostbusters theme. Get creative!
