I’m so excited to look for cool family Halloween costumes this year! We’ve moved past the babywearing costumes stage now that my son is old enough to trick-or-treat, but he’s young enough to accept pretty much whatever costume I dress him, and there is a very short window during which that will be the case!

And OMG, have I found some truly amazing family Halloween costumes ideas out there. Whether you’ve got one or two kids or a whole big brood, I hope these group costume ideas inspire. Because family that trick-or-treats together…has way better odds of getting more Reese’s cups . Let’s be real.

 

Starbucks

If you’re an extra-caffeinated family, I love this frappuccino trio family Halloween costume, including Grande, Venti, and Tall (well, not that tall.) Extra props to this dad for really committing to this role with color-coordinated tights and a tulle puff of latte foam on his head.

 

Star Wars the Force Awakens

I love how Pop Sugar shows how simple it can be to recreate The Force Awakens characters with a combo of DIY and store-bought supplies. And you don’t have to stay true to any particular episode by the way — want to mix Lando, Darth Maul, Po, Luke Skywalker, and Rose Tico (#TeamKellyMarieTran!) then go for it. Though we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve got a kid who insists on being Kylo Ren. There’s one in every family, ha.

 

DIY Space Family

Last year I was toting an infant around on Halloween, so I had to include at least one babywearing costume that caters to mama — or dads — and their babe. The House that Lars Built is mindblowingly creative with costume ideas every year, and this Picasso is no exception, with the baby in a simple Picasso get-up, and mom as the cubist artwork. Just know you need to be good at face painting for this one! I am worried that my own skills might unintentionally turn out more like Munch’s “The Scream” — but hey, that’s what’s cool about babies. You can be like, “oh hey, now you’re Edvard Munch instead of Picasso!” and they’d be like, “no worries!”
