After we officially decided that we were going to be the Incredibles last year for Halloween, our kids all claimed which of the superhero characters they wanted to be, and surprisingly enough, the characters all matched their personalities pretty well!
Ani chose to be Elastigirl, Lyla knew right away that she wanted to be Violet, Millie decided that she was going to be Dash, and it was just obvious and a total given that Harry would be baby Jack-Jack. Of course our girls wanted Neil and me to be Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, which was really fun for us to dress up as! Mr. and Mrs. Incredible would be so fun even if you’re just looking for couples Halloween costumes.
Let’s just say we had fun getting into character, especially with our matching eye masks. This is such a fun idea if you’re looking for group costumes!
My girls had been asking to do Harry Potter for a couple years, and since we have our own little Harry (!!!) we just HAD to do our own version of Harry Potter costumes! (And this castle set the perfect mood, am I right?)
The girls were thrilled to find these super realistic Hogwarts costumes! Add Hermione’s robes to Ani’s bangs and wavy hair, and she’s totally a dead ringer for Harry Potter’s best gal pal. And Lyla was not about to be left out of Gryffindor house, so she chose to be Ron Weasley’s little sister Ginny!
My big girls picked out an owl costume for Millie (sold out now, but here’s a super similar one that’s perfect for toddlers!) and it turned out just darling. And I know I’m biased, but I’m pretty sure our Harry makes THE CUTEST, sweetest Harry Potter of ALL TIME!! It was the perfect costume for him.
I wasn’t 100% sure what Harry Potter character I wanted to be for Halloween but was totally inspired by Fleur Delacour. I mean, this monochromatic blue outfit with a beret??? Yes, please. And Neil as Hagrid worked out great and his costume was so easy to put together with a brown top, brown vest and a wig.
You know what happens when your kids get older? They want to choose their OWN Halloween costumes! In 2019, after years of family Halloween costumes, I prepped myself for variations of pink, sparkles, and tutus – but Anabelle stopped me in my tracks: she wanted to do a family Star Wars theme!
I was immediately on board, although fully aware that 1. my girls are scared of Star Wars and 2. they’ve never seen any of the movies. BUT. We’re huge DISNEY fans and the excitement around Star Wars Land this time a couple years ago was electric! AND Neil can make the Chewy sound (hidden talent for the win!).
We dressed up as Toy Story a few years ago!
Ani loved dressing up as Jessie and posing with Neil as Woody. They’re the sweetest pair! Lyla was such a sassy workout Barbie. She brought some seriously sweet moves to this costume, and as our little resident Barbie and all things girly fan, this costume matched her personality perfectly.
Millie’s costume was the easiest! Bo Peep and her sheep? I mean come on! The cutest costume for infants! (Millie’s exact costume is sold out, but this is a similar version!) Isn’t she the cutest little fuzzy lamb you’ve ever seen?!
Lyla’s Alice wig still cracks me up! We did Alice in Wonderland several years ago, and it’s a really great theme to build on since there are so many distinct and colorful characters. Funny enough, these characters really matched my girls’ personalities so they REALLY got into their costumes! Plus I always love a red lip makeup look.
A few years ago, we chose Wizard of Oz which was totally nostalgic for me. I dressed up as Glinda as a little girl so it was kind of fun to have a go at it again. Toto in a basket was a huge hit, and getting Ani’s face painted all green was quite the evening project. I can’t believe how tiny they both look in these pictures! The sweetest little Dorothy and Wicked Witch.
We’ve done all the hard work for you and rounded up the best Halloween costume ideas that all ship straight to your doorstep, saving your sanity and your sweat glands from all the stress of going to five different stores to get everyone’s bits and pieces of their costumes. These are the best costume options, especially if you’re trying to dress up together as a family!
Even though Halloween is over a month away, it’s still REALLY smart to get everything ordered before one person’s costume sells out and you’re on a wild goose chase trying to track down all the accessories like some ruby red slippers or a blonde wig for a two year old.
Make sure to order your costumes ASAP so they don’t run out of your faves and you can get them shipped to your doorstep in plenty of time, instead of wandering around some crazed costume store the night before October 31st looking at the last shreds of costumes left behind! Ain’t nobody got time for that!!
