13 Family Themed Halloween Costume Ideas


I love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday and I felt like I couldn’t let it pass without featuring family Halloween Costume Ideas. When my boys were little, we had a theme each year. Now they’re too old and have all kinds of opinions and refuse to cooperate. However, if your kids are still into it, here are some fun ideas.

Halloween Costume Ideas

I think Wendi did such a great job with their families pirate costumes! What a fun Halloween Costume Ideas. Arrr!

Teach & Tickle’s family is amazing in these Incredible costumes. My friends family did this a couple years ago and it was seriously so fun.

I thought The Suite Life of Zach and Codi’s costumes were too cute: ketchup, mustard, and a hot dog baby. I love this fun Halloween Costume Ideas and theme.

How cute is that baby parrot! The Fortune Family also had these family costume suggestions:

  • A bird and birdwatchers
  • A chick and a chicken and rooster
  • Any domestic animal and farmers
  • A football and football players
  • A bag of money and bankers
  • A jockey and a horse

Michelle Can Knit outdid her self with these Oompa Loompa costumes.

I really like Bring It Home’s military theme. My boys would go crazy if I suggested this one. {{wink}}

I found Lollipop Guild (from the Wizard of Oz) over at Craftastica’s blog. She also said her sister’s family did the “dukes of hazzard” one year. That would be fun.

Since I had a hard time finding inspiration, I’m resorting to some from Halloween Express, Superman, Elvis Family, Teletubbies.

I thought these ScoobyDoo costumes were cute.

Grease – also a good couple costume idea.

These Dr. Seuss costumes cracked me up!

I love a family theme and did it for a couple years. Here’s our Blue’s Clues tribute.

  1. Love your Blues Clues costumes! I am big into the family costume thing! Fun to find others who are too!

  2. I’m definitely taking note of all the fun couple/family ideas! My husband’s family started an annual Halloween party last year and it’s already become a big deal to see who can come up with the best costume…and keep it a secret til party night. Last year we were a Rocker Family (see link) and we’re looking forward to this year! 🙂 Thanks for all the fun ideas!

  3. I am in LOVE with the Oompa Loompas! Those are just fantastic. I’m still waiting for some brilliant idea for our costumes. So far, we’re going to be cookies and milk. Not sure if I’m sold on it yet though!

  4. Cute ideas. I haven’t dressed up for years but these ideas make me want to. Love your blog by the way. I have 4 girls so this year I thought about doing a little group of Arabian princesses. We ended up going with 4 little witches. I’m a little obsessed with the whole theme halloween. I also love to dress them the same for church. Seriously I need a 12 step program to stop. My 8 yr old is probably going to be ruined for life. Sorry about the novel. Have a great day.
