Finding The Perfect Family Costume

My Halloween costume last year when pregnant with Greyson.

Anyone who knows me know that autumn is by far my favorite holiday. Just the mere thought of PSLs, pumpkin patches, and an entire month dedicated to scary movies makes me happy somewhere deep inside. Oh, and don’t forget the boxes stuffed away in our storage of fall themed home decorations I get to dust off (you’re welcome, husband), new dollars spent on every scented candle that makes me feel like we live in the woods, and the beginning of my journey into seasonal diabetes due to the amount of baked goods I make. Each year it’s been a little tradition of mine to really plan ahead and find fun themed activities for us to do as a twosome and this year I am even more excited because we have our little guy to celebrate the season with.

When it comes to Halloween, we know that planning a family costume is something that takes time, extreme thought, and creativity. I used to always love dressing up and even though my husband isn’t really into costumes, this year and every year for the next forever he will be forced into fun participation of dressing up with Greyson and I in cute coordinated outfits. That is until Greyson is too cool to dress up with his mom. But never mind that because he’s never growing up 😉

After scouring the best of Pinterest searches here are my top favorite ideas for family costumes this Halloween. Which are your favorite?

Jurassic Park
This is most likely going to be our costume choice this year. I love that she was able to find their outfits from local thrift stores (Ventura has plenty of those) and who does not find her daughter’s dinosaur costume to be just the most adorable thing ever. Also, we should all take a moment to remember the greatness that is the ORIGINAL Jurassic Park film.

Ratatouille
I love a good Disney rendition for a family Halloween costume and the key is to finding the cutest baby outfit to match. I just adore their costumes and love how simple they are to put together! This is also a fun costume for us since my husband and I both love to cook!

Finding Nemo
You seriously can’t deny just how great this costume is! I love the take on Finding Nemo that isn’t your traditional fish theme. The fact this family went with Darla and the dentist is just perfect!

This family who wins at life…

The Lego Movie
Did I mention I’m a fan of Disney/family movies? This family just blows my mind with how they recreated the popular Lego characters straight from the movie! I hope to one day find the time and effort to put into creating this costume. #parentinggoals.

Beetlejuice
Both my husband and I are avid fans of the Beetlejuice movie since it played such a fun part in the movies we saw growing up. We had discussed a Beetlejuice costume for a little while now and it was so much fun to see what other families interpreted this movie! I think the below photo may just be too intense for my little guy at the moment, but I couldn’t help but share how awesome it came out!

Aren’t these parents awesome for planning and putting together some pretty great costumes for the family? #momgoals. I still have some time to figure out what we’ll be doing – but I’m curious, what costumes are you planning??
