50+ Family Costume Ideas for Halloween

This post was most recently updated on November 29th, 2019

It’s so fun to dress up as a family or group. These family costume ideas can expand to fit the number of people you need them too. Be creative – the best part is you can pick up props, hair pieces and other things to make your own family costumes. Then for the more simple ones (like a German boy) it makes a more realistic costume. Or, if you’d rather just buy the costumes and be done, you can do that too.

Here are some fun ideas to inspire you.

50+ Family Halloween Costume Ideas

3 Amigos Family Costume DIY

My Facebook friend Jason Hewlett who is a well known public speaker in Utah posted his family Halloween costume. I was amazed! He gave me permission to share his photo and he shared how his wife put the costume together.

Here are some notes:

She got one sombrero at Savers and the other 2 from Zurchers. What a lucky find!! If you don’t have a Zurchers nearby, I’ve seen some colorful sombreros at Costumes4Less or these black and white sombreros on Amazon for under $12.

The cigar is a small plastic nunchuck.

The scarf is an old dress.

The boy’s jackets are painted designs using a glue stick. You can use any black suit jacket you get at a thrift store. Same with the vests.

Their dog is the piñata (not sure if they made that too, but I found one here).

You can find an ammo belt here and find some plastic guns/holsters.

I found another version on Pinterest, here.

I like mixing some bought pieces and some things we have on hand but there are times I’m tired just thinking about making a costume and I do what I did this year: bought one. Alexis is going as Moana. I did make my costume (a mattress!) but that was all I could do. I’d love to have my husband be a blanket or pillow but he’s not dressing up this year.

I salute all the talented moms I know who make killer costumes! It’s so fun to see the creativity and talent they put into them. I wish that I enjoyed doing that more than I do but I’m a great cheerleader!
