26 Of The Most Creative Family Halloween Costume Ideas

DIY family Halloween costume inspiration for your Halloween festivities!

Mickey And Disney

What I love so much about this family costume is how simple it is, and how sweet. As long as your child has a Mickey costume, you’ve just got to make yourself look like a tourist and you’re golden!

A Magician And A Bunny

If you were thinking about dressing your baby up in a bunny Halloween costume, why not complete the look with the addition of a magician and magician’s assistant? Simple DIY costumes that are totally cute.


Can you believe that this mama was pregnant and DIYed these adorable skeleton costumes by hand cutting each bone out of felt and ironing them on?! If she can do it, then why not you?


If my husband saw this, I know he would jump right on the family halloween costume band wagon. And again, this is super simple because I bet you already OWN most of this stuff.

Cops And Robbers

I really can’t get enough of the cops and robbers costume ideas. Seriously. And throw in a super cute kid, and you’ve got a recipe for the best costumes in town. And the Little Tykes Cozy Coupe Police Car? Gah, I just. can’t take. the CUTENESS.

The Flintstones

What better costume for a family than one of the most popular TV cartoon families! Get yourself some big sheets of felt and you could whip up these costumes in no time.

The Shining

I don’t know whether to call this one CREEPY or creative. It’s definitely a little bit of both, and I’m sure that having twins isn’t a necessity in order to pull this one off.

Mary Poppins

Gosh, isn’t this ADORABLE? If you go for this idea, your pre-trick or treat preparations better include some Chim Chim Cher-ee.

Cops And Robbers II

Just some more robber inspiration, because you can never have enough!

The Circus

Another example of why a Halloween costume photo shoot is a must!

This family’s circus costumes and entire set-up take creativity up a notch. I mean seriously, they thought of everything! You’ve got the lion tamer, the popcorn passer-outer, the lion, the Ringmaster, the strongest man in the world… LOVE.

The Gingerbread Man

I feel like I’m saying the same things over and over, but oh my goodness, I’m on cuteness overload. (And if you want to check out more of this beautiful family, just click the pic).

The chef costumes would be real easy to throw together, too, making this a good last minute option.

A Martini

This is a total DIY family costume. Who would have thought to put a baby in an olive costume, and then dress yourself in a cardboard martini glass?! This might just be the most creative costumes on this list.

Super Mario

90’s mamas, where you at? How cute is this Super Mario family? I love the idea, I love the bright colors, and if you live in a cold climate, these costumes will keep you warm for sure!


Do our kids even know about Ghostbusters? Well, they should! Bring back the ridiculous awesomeness that is the Ghostbusters with these costumes. Don’t you adore the addition of the ghost balloons?


If you’re not yet over Elsa  If your kids are not yet over Elsa, this is definitely a family costume idea that would please the little princesses in your family.

The Three Little Pigs

This family’s costumes are seriously so simple, but there is something so great about it. Perfect for the younger crowd in love with fairy tales.

Power Rangers

Go, go Power Rangers!


Okay, so when I said earlier that you could always go as Rajah and have your daughter go as Jasmin, this isn’t what I had in mind (Veronique is one hot mama!). However, if you’ve got it, flaunt it!

Super Mario II

Okay, okay , one more Super Mario costume idea for you. I love that this mama used an old prom dress. Super smart! Now excuse me while I go see if I still have my old prom dresses.


The Wizard Of Oz

This Wizard of Oz ensemble is perfection, don’tcha think?

Alice In Wonderland

It’s Alice in Wonderland, but only 1,000 times better.

The Zoo

Zoo costumes are the perfect answer when you want to do a family costume and your kids also want to have some say in what they will be!

Amelia Earhart

I love this! Such fun, and girl power, too!

A League Of Their Own

Only the best movie of all time!

It’s our problem-free philosophy: Hakuna Matata! 🐾 #RobSquadHalloween 🖤🎃💀 And FYI: I made all the costumes this year because Lion King costumes don’t really exist. And all with my glue gun!! Yes that’s right, these are all No-Sew costumes 🙌🏼 Huge shout out to my glue gun, without her I would be nothing. Also shout out to my finger tips. I should prob rob a bank or something since I’ve burned off all identifying factors 😂 In order: Pumbaa & Timon, Nala, Simba, Scar, Rafiki & Mufasa! #SquadGhouls #CreepItReal #BowDownWitches #BooFelicia #BasicWitch #HalloweensoHard #Familycostume #RealFamHalloween #contest #mommyshortshalloween #lionking #disneycosplay #disneyhalloween #disneyinsta
