Our favorite holiday is fast approaching and rust us when we say that we have been dreaming up costume ideas since the day-after last Halloween. We will randomly text each other throughout the year with fun costume ideas and now the time has come to put them in action.
My boys at, 9 1/2 and 7 are pretty independent thinking about their costumes and my 4 year old is strictly obsessed with being a Vampire. But we used to do whole family themes which was SO fun.
Hello insanely talented parents who can make Beetlejuice costumes!
Fortunately for Erin & I, our husbands are pretty much stuck with our costume ideas and so we still get to have fun making up group costumes. Last year oddly enough without discussing it first, we both were dreaming of being some sort of incarnation of KISS and so this happened.
This year here are some of the costumes we are dreaming of, both for your family or just for a grown up night out.
With a few clicks into your online shopping cart and some Thrift Store scores you and your babes are on your way to an amazing Labyrinth costume.
Mostly this one is exciting because we LOVE Wednesday. Could there be a cooler costume for your little one? Morticia is pretty fun for mom too... But we would rather be Wednesday. This is a great group costume for a large group... Just have fun fighting over who gets to be cousin it. Your fella will love to be Gomez Addams as well because all he has to do is put on his favorite black suit, draw on a skinny stash, grease back his hair and tack a rubber hand on his shoulder! Voila!
Now you may think no one will get this right away, but sometimes it's the slow crawl costumes that are the best. As each member of your group arrives, it becomes more and more clear who you guys are.
You are going to have to go big thrifting on this one. But what a fun day to get your crew together before Halloween and work out each character!
We hope you have an amazing Halloween! Please share your costume ideas and final pictures with us!
