For our first official Halloween shoot as a family, I knew we had to come up with some epic costumes. We couldn’t go 2017 trendy. We had to go back to where we came from: the ‘80s. Both my husband David and I were born in 1983, and while we identify more strongly with the ‘90s grunge vibe, our childhood memories are firmly rooted in this throwback era. Mystical bear-like creatures in forests, goblin kings, and R.O.U.S.’s were all fair game in our long lost neon decade. Scroll on for five family Halloween costume ideas perfect for children of the ‘80s who now find themselves with kiddos of their own.
