It’s officially fall which means all things pumpkin, Halloween and more. As soon as the season changes (even though it’s still 90 degrees), I get into full fall fun planning mode. I start with Halloween because matching costumes are my jam. It never fails that I want to buy a couple family Halloween costume sets because there are so many good themes to choose from which means I have to give myself a deadline or pay rush shipping fees.
Every year my family and friends ask what family Halloween costumes we plan on wearing to all the festivities. Every year I share them here too but usually after the big day. Not this year. I spent some time strolling down memory lane of some of our previous family halloween costumes and making a list of some themes we are considering for this year.
Before kids, my husband and I enjoyed dressing up in themed Halloween costumes. There was the year we did the sexy referee and the basketball player. Good times before kids or maybe that’s how we got here? LOL. As a family of 3, the first few years were all about Little J also known as The Princess Years. But if you know us then you know there is always a Princess dress nearby.
And then we were a family of 4. The first Halloween with her brother, Little J decided she wanted to be a girl lion. I was perfectly happy with that. As you can see, there was a lion but it was not Little J. Let’s just say toddlers will flip the script when you take them to shop for costumes.
Things just kept getting better and better.
Flintstones Family Halloween Costume
Peter Pan Family Halloween Costume
Peter Pan was a fun one, although I left myself for last and had to improvise. This was hubby’s pick. I’ll admit, I loved it after all was said and done.
Zootopia Family Halloween Costume
was Lil J’s pick and I secretly think it’s my favorite one yet. There was also a lot of DIY action for this one with our Zootopia costumes.
And here were are as a family of 5. What better family Halloween costumes could there be when like us they have 3 kids. So The Incredibles it was.
Incredibles Family Halloween Costume
Original? No. Fun? Absolutely. Plus my hubby who is notorious for taking off his costume right after photos kept his Incredible Dad on shirt for Trunk or Treat. If you happen to be a family of 5 these Incredibles costumes are what you want.
This year we have a walking and dancing toddler joining us so this should be interesting. Here are some of our favorite themes we are considering and ones we think are perfect for any family.

But since we love all things Disney and are gearing up for Disney Plus, we might just make it another Disney family costume year. Stay tuned!
