Best Halloween Costumes for the Whole Family
Do you plan on having a family-style Halloween? If you’re thinking of dressing up the family in theme or look-alike costumes, there are an abundance of ideas and costumes available. Sometimes it’s difficult to choose, so here are some ideas to make it easier.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky – The Addams Family television series reruns are some of the most watched by today’s kids and adults. Kids love them, and the costumes are sure to provide a ghoulish cast to your family-style Halloween. Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday and Uncle Fester can all come alive when you dress up your family in these unique Halloween costumes, complete with wigs.
If you want a silly and fun look for Halloween, dress your family in the various Sesame Street character costumes that are available online – characters such as Big Bird, Elmo, Bert and Ernie, and even the Cookie Monster are sure to delight your entire family.
You can even choose characters from your favorite cartoons. Dad may choose to be the loveable Great Dane dog and dress in a costume that includes the body, hood, mitts, feet and blue collar. Mom might want to dazzle the crowds by dressing as the fairy godmother from Cinderella – and the kids can let their imaginations run wild when they choose from the wide array of children’s costumes.
Some Halloween costume theme ideas might include costumes from the 50s – poodle skirts, pony tails and bobby socks were the style then, and now they make colorful and fun Halloween costumes. Think about dressing up your family for Halloween as characters from the movie, “Wizard of Oz.”
There’s Dorothy, of course, and the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man – and don’t forget the Wizard. You’ll find everything from makeup, wigs and loads of other ideas online – an easy way to shop to be sure you get everything you need and in the correct sizes.
You can even go back in time and learn some history by dressing up your family as Roman Soldiers or Greek Gladiators, Cleopatra and goddesses from a time when clothing showed your wealth and position in society. These costumes are well-made and easy to get in and out of and allow room for layering underneath so that you’ll stay warm when the wind begins to howl.
A scarier theme for Halloween could be costumes such as witches and warlocks, ghouls and skeletons. Ideas abound online for ways that you can make this Halloween one that your whole family will always remember.
