Donning fun and creative Halloween costumes with the family is a great way to bond with them. Whether you are aiming to make heads turn, or just want to have a themed costume set that will allow you to go together, these outfits will help you come up with ideas that can make you stand out from the crowd.
Dress Up as Famous Characters
If the young ones have favorite movies, cartoons or games, use them as a starting point when coming up with a concept for this year’s Halloween costume.
Dressed up as the cast of Despicable Me, this family made sure that everybody assumed the important characters in the film – from the adorable orphan girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes, to the funny and rowdy minions. Of course, this ensemble would not be complete without the super villain Gru, and his colleague Dr. Nefario.
Wouldn’t it look fun when you see your favorite video game icons making a cameo on the streets? This Pac-Man family revived the vintage arcade game by dressing up as Pac-Man and its pellet food, aka pac-dots.
Tetris is another classic game you can use as inspiration. Not only does it create nostalgia, it is also fun to look at especially for onlookers who enjoyed the game in their day. Be sure to make the Tetris blocks fit together when you’re planning the costumes.
Come as Slice of Life Situations
Depicting the everyday happenings in our lives with Halloween costumes will spark an immediate interest in everyone who can relate.
We see hampers and washing machines regularly, but not on some adorable kids having fun keeping you impressed and entertained. This trio is a head-turner, not only because of their well-made outfits, but also because of the happiness that can be seen in their faces as they sport their laundry-themed costumes.
These beekeepers won’t be collecting honey anytime soon what with their bees out on the streets. You can even let your family dog join in on the party with his very own cute bee get-up.
Wear Your Everyday Food
A charming and delightful sight, food costumes are always relevant wherever you go.
This adorable family wows with their BLT attire. Each costume in this set was carefully thought out to clearly represent the food being referenced. Compared with the simple bread costumes of the parents, the children’s outfits are more elaborate because of the details necessary to add distinct character to the bacon, lettuce and tomato.
With only a few cardboards, art materials, and your creativity, you can turn the family into a snack. This milk and cookies costume set is so simple, yet so cleverly crafted that people can’t help but to take a second look and go hungry themselves.
Come up with Easy but Clever Costume Ideas
You do not have to spend too much on a DIY costume. If your concept is witty enough, it will shine and make an impact. This couple’s stick figure costumes are only made up of white suits, black tape, and masks drawn with a marker, but they score high on clever points.
Halloween costume possibilities abound, but the most important thing is the enjoyment your family feels while wearing them, and even when planning them with you.
