40 Fabulous Themed Family Halloween Costumes

You can’t deny it: One of the most fun parts of having little ones is dressing them up in adorable Halloween costumes, like a baby Dory or, for Star Wars fans, a roly-poly BB-8. You’ll have lots of Halloweens to dress up on your own, but there’s something truly special about a close-knit bunch that celebrates together with family Halloween costumes. Even if you’re not a part of one of those bigger broods, don’t fret! There are plenty of super creative ways for you and your fam to play dress up, even if you’re pregnant and need an easy maternity costume. From classic spooky families to puns, here are 40 fabulous Halloween costumes for you and your entire fam to rock.

1. Zombie Family: There was no escape from the zombie attack. So get your entire family together for a zombie apocalypse this Halloween (if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, amirite?). This is one of the easiest costumes to DIY with the clothes your fam already has in their closets. (via Costume Works)

2. Ice, Ice, Baby: We’re always fans of a great pun-ny Halloween costume. This great one includes the entire fam-bam and is a throwback to Vanilla Ice himself. Bonus if you and your boo bone up on your rap skills pre-party. (via Costume Works)

3. Alan and Carlos from The Hangover: This amazing costume never gets old. The baby’s glasses are just too much (in a good way). (via Costume Works)

4. Monopoly: Between the jailer and passing go, this costume sets up a pretty great depiction of the child-parents dynamic. Besides, this pint-sized Mr. Monopoly is completely presh. (via Lil’ Luna)

5. Despicable Me: If the kiddos love those adorable Minions, this may be the pick for you. We love how the parents got in on the fun — and completely into character. And if you have a baby, go ahead and add a Minion to the bunch. (via Costume Works)

6. The Addams Family: Pay homage to your favorite goth-chic family (and thank T-Swift for making the look SO in). They did an impressive job, and we must say, the baby’s widow’s peak makeup is fantastic. (via Best of Halloween Costumes)

7. Jurassic Park: This is a totally easy costume to DIY. You and your S.O. can undoubtedly pull the necessary rugged clothes right from your closets, and all that’s left is finding your little one some sort of dino gear. We do love the half-hatched look, but if you’re out of time or are dealing with a cranky kiddo, just throw on their fave dino PJs. (via Cupcakes and Cashmere)

8. 101 Dalmatians: This is a cute way to celebrate a Disney classic. If your family’s got more than a couple kids, dress ’em up as Dalmatians and go collect some doggy bags of candy. (via Our Everyday Art)

9. Peter Pan and the Lost Boys: Harness that rebellious spirit as a whole family this Halloween. All you’ll need are some PJs, cardboard swords and a Pan getup. (via A Beautiful Mess)

10. Ratatouille: We’re absolutely in love with this adorable family costume. Ratatouille is one of the sweetest films to reenact, and dressing up as chefs is surprisingly simple. That just leaves the mouse costume for your little one, and you’re all set. (via The House of Cornwall)

11. Aladdin: Aladdin, Princess Jasmine and Abu the monkey. Can you think of a cuter family trio? (via Pinterest)

12. Alice in Wonderland: Alice in Wonderland has a whole array of great characters to choose from. If your family is the whimsical type, each  can choose their favorite character and get to work on the DIY costumes from there. (via Costume Works)

13. The Wizard of Oz: Here’s Dorothy and her three companions in Oz: the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion. Hint: Babies make for much cuter lions than adults do! (via Costume Works)

14. Princess Peach and Toad: Pay homage to your favorite childhood video game and dress up as the original royal princess, complete with a tiny toad companion. It’s also the perfect excuse to try on the most outrageous princess dress you can find. (via Brit + Co)

15. Royal Family: Channel your inner royal with this adorable, yet sophisticated, family costume. Even if you don’t have this exact getup, a few key pieces will make you easily recognizable — like the fascinator and blue knee socks. Prince William not required (but always welcome)! (via Say Yes)

16. Nesting Dolls: If you have a house full of darling daughters, play it up with this one-of-a-kind nesting dolls costume. All you need is a few yards of fabric to make the matching headscarves and half-aprons. (via June-Bug and Beila-Bot)

17. Alice in Wonderland: Fall down the rabbit hole this Halloween and hit the town with a fun-sized Red Queen. Scour your local Goodwill for a blue skirt and white shirt and put your own spin on the lovely Alice. (via Say Yes)

18. Bee + Bee Keeper: The whole neighborhood will be buzzing over this adorable costume. The honey trick-or-treat bucket is an absolute must and can easily be recreated with paint or foam letters. Bonus points for a dog-bee. (via Pink Pistachio)

19. Where’s Waldo?: Pull out all those striped shirts in your closet and pile on your wackiest accessories. Anything goes with these Waldo costumes. (via Say Yes)
