Fun And Unique Family Matching Costume Ideas (For The Best Halloween Ever!)
What’s inside: An ultimate guide to fun and unique family matching costume ideas for Halloween!
The Best Halloween Ever
We know you’ve been spending the last couple of weeks, or maybe even the past few months, trying to come up with the perfect matching costume idea for the whole family to participate in on Halloween.
Halloween may be all about the candy for your kids. But for us parents, it’s about putting our lovely little ones in adorable costumes and immortalize those moments by snapping multiple photos.
There are only so many years that your kids will want to coordinate their Halloween costumes with you and if you want to really make the most of that time, here are some awesome dress-up options for your entire family.
Since we’re all busy moms and lack either the time or skills (or in my case, both) to make our own costumes, you can easily get these costumes delivered to your house with just one click. But if you’re crafty enough then let these ideas serve as the inspiration for your DIY projects.
Scroll on for our ultimate guide to fun and unique family matching costume ideas for Halloween.

Let’s have a yabba dabba doo Halloween as the Flintstone family! Dress up as Fred, Wilma, Bamm-Bamm, and Pebbles and travel back to a time when cars made you run out of breath. Don’t forget to let your dog join in on the fun this Halloween too, as the Flintstones pet Dino.
This is a family costume set from a Star Wars galaxy far, far away. Let dad act out as a vicious Stormtrooper, mom (who has secretly always wanted to wear her hair in buns) as Leia, your light-saber loving son can be Darth Vader and your little one can be a teeny tiny Yoda.

Who can forget those lovable minions from Despicable Me? They’re everywhere and they even got their own movie! Get out of your comfort zone and start plotting like Gru, grab Agnes and add on a silly, gibberish-talking minion or two. Now go out and have yourself a fun Halloween, pinky promise?
Got yourself a super family? Then there’s no other alternative for you than to dress up as a family of superheroes! Dad can finally fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming Batman, mom gets to be the Wonder Woman she’s always been anyway and then there’s, of course, the Flash and Supergirl.
The Addams Family
Are you already one of the ideal twentieth-centrury families in America? Then why not dress up as a satirical version of yourself: The Addams Family! Dress up as Gomez, the busty Morticia, Wednesday, and the hairy relative. If you want to challenge your DIY-skills you can dress up one of you as Thing!
Who doesn’t love unicorns? Seriously? They’re the most beautiful and magical creatures there is. Mom can be the comfy unicorn, dad can ride a unicorn trying to tame it, and your daughter can be the pretty little unicorn princess with a fancy dress and wings!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Are you ready to come up from the sewers of New York City and defend the city from criminals, evil overlords, mutated creatures, and alien invaders while attempting to remain hidden from society? I bet you are! The only question left is, who of you are gonna be Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Leonardo?
Master the art of Spinjitzu with your family this Halloween and dress up as Jay the Master of Lightning, Cole the Master of Earth, and Zane the Master of Ice, Kai the Master of Fire, Lloyd, and if you’ve got a big family; Lord Garmadon and Sensei Wu!
You can never get too old up for dinosaurs. They’re fascinating creatures, cool to play with, and most of all, fun to dress up as. Dress up the whole family as Triceratops, baby Triceratops, T-rex, and Buddy. That was all of the dinosaurs I knew.
Pokémon Go became a real hit when it launched last summer and I don’t think there’s a twelve-year-old out there who hasn’t at least tried the game. Let Ash run free this spooky October night to search for his beloved Pikachu (or any of the other 802 different Pokémon there is). But watch out! Jessie and James from Team Rocket might be right behind you.
Run away with the circus (who wouldn’t wanna when the circus creatures are this cute!?) and have the adventure of a lifetime. Maybee, you’re strong enough to be the muscle man, or just funny enough to qualify to be a clown. But if there’s a scary lion at the circus, make sure that there’s a great ringmaster there to tame it!
Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook. Who will be who for your matching Halloween? Klicka för att Tweeta
Become a lost boy and travel to Never Never Land as Peter Pan, the flying boy of literature, stage, and screen. Sprinkle some fairy dust as Tinkerbell, be the cool villain Captain Hook or the sweet girl Wendy. You can always add a couple of lost boys if you have a bigger family.
Who said you need a whole football team for a family? I think it’s just enough with one football player and an adorable little football as well. Add one big and one small cheerleader and the referee will have his hands full during the whole Halloween night!
Alice in Wonderland
Who is ready for a tea party? This cute little Alice is! And the Mad Hatter is invited too! the Cheshire cat with his distinctive mischievous grin might stop by too. Just be aware of the ruler of Underland, the Queen of Hearts. You don’t want her to start yelling ”Off with their heads!”
Remember the family of superheroes who were forced to hide their powers and live a quiet suburban life? Maybe that’s your family this year! Dress up the entire family as the strong Mr. Incredible, the stretchy Mrs. Incredible, and their kids ‘invisible’ Violet, the super fast Dash, and the shape-shifting infant Jack-Jack.
Enter the magical world of Harry Potter for a night. Learn to cast spells like Expecto Patronum, Lumos and if you dare, Avada Kedavra! Split your family into the good guys Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, and the bad guys Lord Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange. If someone doesn’t feel like dressing up, he or she can be a muggle! Perfect!
Is your husband a big kid at heart? If so, he’ll love the Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Costume. He’ll definitely go to infinity and beyond with this costume. You and your child can match each other as the Cowboys Woody and Jessie. If you have a baby, you must promise to dress him or her up as a little alien. The costume is out of this world adorable!
