Can you believe that Halloween is a week away?? If you’re still trying to figure out what your family is going to wear, I have some really fun and easy last minute halloween costumes!
October has been such a busy month, and I’ll admit I only just now figured out our costumes for this year. Since Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays of the year, but I have to say that with kids, it’s 10000x more fun! I was finally able to convince Adrian to get in on dressing up a couple of years ago, and our family Halloween costumes have since become a memory that my kids talk about all year long!
I wanted to share some throwback photos of our Halloween from years past and hopefully, it might give you a few costume ideas as well! Everything I’m linking is available on Amazon Prime so with the 2-day shipping, you’ll still be ready in time for those Halloween parties and/or trick-or-treating!
Last Minute Halloween Costumes for Families
I took the kids to watch The Incredibles 2 movie last year shortly before Halloween so the choice to dress up as The Incredibles family was a no-brainer. This was one of the easiest costumes to put together and actually were surprisingly warm as it provided head-to-toe coverage. Plus it was definitely fun to act like “superheroes” for a night!
Mei has been pretty obsessed with Disney’s Frozen and has always loved the Anna character in particular. We had purchased the Anna outfit for her just for dress-up fun so coordinating a family Halloween costume idea around Frozen was a given. Having Adrian dress up as Olaf was also one of the funnier moments and was unfortunately because adult Kristoff costumes were all out and/or $100+. But he was definitely a good sport and we all loved how the Olaf costume worked out!
This costume idea works double duty as these pajamas would be great for just everyday! The kids love wearing matching pajamas when it comes to the holidays and these skeletons are one of their favorites as they actually glow in the dark too!
I’m actually kinda bummed we didn’t do a whole family Halloween costume idea around Toy Story but this would be so much fun to do — and timely given that Toy Story 4 just released this year! Dylan and Mei loved being Buzz Lightyear and Jesse, but there are so many characters in the Toy Story movie that it’s fun to pick your character for dress-up.
The “Where The Wild Things Are” story is one of our favorites and this is another fun option especially if you have siblings that can pair up as Max and Baby Carol.
