Halloween Costume Ideas For Kids And For The Whole Family

Since we’re almost halfway through October, Halloween is just around the corner. For those of you who haven’t thought of yet what your little one is going to be this Halloween, then look nowhere else; I’ve rounded up some fun suggestions for your little one’s costume. And while you’re at it, why don’t you join in the fun and wear costumes as well?

Monsters Inc

Monsters Inc. – Perfect for family of 3, your daughter can be Boo and you, the parents, can be Sullivan and Mike. OR if you have a son, he can either be Sullivan or Mike, and Mommy can be Boo.

This was our costume when we went trick or treating last year. Although it was just me and my daughter because Daddy had to stay at home with my son (he was just a month old then and I didn’t want him to catch any virus). I was able to find a Sullivan t-shirt from an Etsy shop (but it looks like they don’t sell those anymore). It was a practical choice for us because we still got to wear our costumes after Halloween. Shop some of my favorite Monsters Inc. costumes below.

inside out

Inside Out – This is probably one of my favorites simply because you wear actual clothes as a costume which you can still use even after halloween so investing in any of these pieces isn’t such a waste. If you want to take it a bit further, go ahead and get yourselves some wigs to complete your look. I’ve linked some of my favorite clothes below that can help you achieve their look.

Justice League

Justice League – Because who doesn’t love to be a superhero even for just one day? I believe Justice League is perfect for that reason; and don’t you find the costumes I’ve linked below for your little ones so adorable?

Addams Family

Addams Family – If you want to be traditional and stick with the black and white color scheme, Addams Family is a perfect option for you. Just let your daughter wear a black tights underneath the white shirt collared onesie and black dress and she’s good to go; or let your son wear black shorts to go with the black and white striped t-shirt/onesie I’ve linked below.

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland – If you want to go above and beyond for this year’s costume, Alice in Wonderland will help you achieve that. The costumes I’ve linked below are super fun; if you want your precious little one to dress as cheshire cat; just add a pink ear and tail to go with the striped pink pajama below.

      Thank you! I’m glad you liked it. I liked the inside out costumes as well; we would probably do inside out this year if I haven’t decided yet which ones we’re going to be this Halloween.

    I love all of your ideas. And the fact the adults costumes aren’t necessarily all “costumes.” They are more practical and something we more than likely already have hanging in the closet!!

      Thank you; I’m glad you loved them. This is so true; and if we ever need to get something new for the “costumes”, we will be able to wear them even after Halloween.

      Lol! That would be so cute. My kids are too young yet to decide what they’re going to be for Halloween so I am taking advantage of it. 🙂 Thank you; I’m glad you loved it.

    LOVE these. The kid ones are so adorable. I especially love seeing adult costumes that aren’t cheesy and inappropriate. Love Superman and Wonder Woman for me and the hubs. haha Thanks for sharing all of these with us!

    These costumes are so much fun! I always think it is so cute when the whole family dresses up as the same theme.

      Thank you! I couldn’t agree more. I do still have a few more years before my kids would want to decide for themselves so I am taking advantage of it. 🙂
