Calling all families! This is the cutest family costume you鈥檒l see. As Brit + Co鈥檚 resident Disney/Pixar mega-fan, I freely admit that between ages 10-14, I probably watched my Finding Nemo DVD every single weekend. It should come as no surprise that I was in line to watch Finding Dory on opening day. I鈥檒l confess: I was a little worried that Finding Dory wouldn鈥檛 live up to the amazingness of its predecessor, but it totally did. I watched the movie multiple times in theaters and laughed and cried each time. I learned that an octopus has three hearts and that Dory loves shells. Most of all, my love for Dory, Marlin and Nemo grew and grew, and Hank鈥檚 grumpy exterior and marshmallow interior completely won me over.

Come October 25, Finding Dory is available on digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, which is great news for so many reasons. First being that you can watch the film on repeat if desired, second being that it鈥檚 perfect inspo for the cutest Halloween family costume ever. This Halloween, dress you and your family up as your favorite marine creatures, Dory, Hank and Nemo! Although making three costumes may sound a little daunting, each of these outfits is really easy to make. Let鈥檚 get to it!
