    Posted by  ·  October 6, 2017

    Here some great Family Halloween Costumes. It’s officially October and Halloween is right around the corner.  Are you thinking about Halloween Costumes?  I love a unique creative costume idea.  Some of my favorite costume ideas have been Family Halloween Costumes where we dressed together with a fun theme. Here are few ideas worth your time, with a little planning, you can create these fun halloween costume ideas too!  It is really fun to plan together and come up with ideas. Bonus you will get a lot of attention dressing in a theme together. Make sure to do it while they are little once they get a bit older they will have ideas of their own and most likely you won’t be all together as a group which is necessary for this to work. If you are looking for costumes for babies, you will love this post DIY Halloween Costumes for babies. Full of cute ideas.

    Family Costume Ideas

    When you need a group halloween costume these ideas will make you the hit of the party.  Our family loves dressing up and here are some great family costume ideas!

    Kiss Halloween Costumes

    Kiss Halloween Costumes by Skip to my Lou

    These Kiss Halloween costumes are really very easy to pull off.  We made our own shirts by cutting out the KISS logo in sparkly vinyl but you could buy them on Amazon. The face make up is easy for even a novice like me.  A black wig pulls everything together. We used painted card board cut outs for the guitars. Your kids will love making these. Be sure to take your own Kiss picture like we did here. I love my husbands face in this photo. We even used this photo for our Christmas cards and said hugs and KISSes.

    Flintstones Halloween Costumes

    The Flintstones by Skip to my Lou

    This was another easy costume for the family. You can buy a Fred Flintstone costume but since I like to sew handmade costumes I found it easy to put together. If you don’t sew do not fear you can buy them online too!  Just make sure you have a pebbles in the family. Our little Bella sure made the theme work out the best! She was such a cute Pebbles!  I can’t believe how little she is here, she is a pre-teen now! They grow up so fast.

    Cops and Robbers by Living Locurto

    Cops and Robbers is a classic costume idea. It doesn’t get easier than this!  All you need are black clothing, nylons, a white bag and a cop costume. You can choose whether you allow the toy gun. I think this costume idea is adorable. You can easily put it together in a day. We all need a little last minute costume idea!


    Mary Poppins by Make it and Love it

    Mary Poppins is one of my favorite characters.  This would be very cute if you have three kids, or more. After all there are more characters you could create Halloween costumes for. These costumes do require some extra work but she walks you through each one with a step by steps sewing tutorial. They really come out beautiful and could be passed down through your family. Just allow a few weeks to sew and put this together.

    Wizard of Oz Halloween Costumes

    Wizard of Oz Family Costume by Me and My Insanity

    If you are fan of the Wizard of Oz (and who isn’t?) this is a very fun family costume. You can purchase almost every costume so you don’t need to know how to sew.  I think the tin man is my favorite in this family but they all turned out very cute. Be sure you don’t miss the details that can make this family costume really stand out like the crown on Glenda, the witches green face, Dorthy’s red sparkly slippers (not pictured) and tin man’s axe. It is those little details that pull this together.

    Rapunzel and Flynn Rider Costume Ideas by Make it and Love it

    What little child doesn’t like Rapunzel? It is really easy to pull of this Tangled theme family costume.  You can easily find many beautiful Rapunzel costumes or make your own.  You little ones will feel extra excited for Halloween dressed in these fun characters. I think you could have a lot of fun with Rapunzel’s hair and I think the extra touch of drawing a goatee on Flynn is adorable. Seriously, the Flynn Rider Costume is spot on!


    The Monsters Family Costume

    Family Halloween Costume Ideas

    Here are some family halloween costumes not pictured (but would easy to pull off)

    • Frozen (what kid wouldn’t love this one). Don’t miss my no sew frozen cape.
    • Super Mario Brothers- Video fames can also give a lot of inspiration.
    • The Avengers
    • Legos
    • Bubble bee (perfect for baby) and his Bee Keepers
    • 101 Dalmatians- this allows for such a great number of people and Cruella is just amazing to create.
    • Peter Pan- this one has such a great cast! Captain Hook, Wendy, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and the gang are just so cute.
    • Monsters Inc.
    • Winnie the Pooh
    • Stick Figure Family- Glow sticks make this one really stand out.
    • Alice and Wonderland- This turns out so cute. Alice is also cute on her own.
    • The Incredibles- because who doesn’t want to be a super hero? Be a super hero family!
    • Dr. Suess
    • Scooby Doo and Gang- this is so easy to recreate.

    There are so many more, just think of your favorite movie and characters! I would start by seeing how many people in your family you need to include in your family costume and then look through your favorite movies, popular celebrities can work too (especially for teens). Disney movies work very well. But we have enjoyed cartoons too (like the Flintstone’s pictured above).  I would pay attention to what your kids are already into because they they are likely to use the costume to play in it over and over. Halloween is the best time of the year and we all get to be someone other than ourselves for a day so have fun!
