Halloween Costume Ideas For Kids And For The Whole Family

Since we’re towards the end of September, Halloween is just around the corner. I know there are moms like me who already thought what their kids is going to be for Halloween as early as first or second quarter of the year (I don’t know for how long I can get away with it though). But 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 the Halloween of 2015. 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 (similar) from an Etsy shop. 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.

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.

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 with Wonder Woman being released earlier this year (girl power), I think kids & moms would want to dress up as her! I know I probably would if I didn’t already have our costumes planned. Don’t you find the costumes I’ve linked below for your little ones so adorable?

    • 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.

  • Love these ideas! I think it would be so fun to do themed costumes for the whole family.

    • Thank you; glad you liked it! The Justice League costumes would be so cute for your boys. 🙂

  • 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.

  • I love this. We usually do Peanuts theme but my son had a mind of his own this year so he will be a Firefighter he told me to be an Ambulance LOL

    • 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.

  • I just love Halloween. The ideas are endless. These are very cute.

    • I used to not love it but after having kids, I love it now. Lol. Thank you; glad you liked them.

    I love the Flash costume! My 3yo has been obsessed with his character all month! He’s begging to be him 🙂

    • Awww! That’s so cute! Now you know where to get one. 😉

  • 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. 🙂

  • sayhellonature

    These are such fun ideas! I love how you can get the whole family involved in them

    • Thank you! Definitely; I do believe that it’s so much more fun to do things if everyone in the family participates. 🙂
