These family costume ideas will have you making an unforgettable entrance at any costume party or event throughout the year, but especially at Halloween. It’s both FUN and rewarding to work together as a family, and share the memories of preparing and presenting a creative group effort to the world. So, if you plan to make Halloween a family affair this year, you’ll find some impressive inspiration here.

For example, Johnny Depp made the Mad Hatter cool with his kooky swagger and the awesome costume designed to complement his character. Dad can be just as cool by knocking off that costume and including the rest of the family in a group tribute to Alice in Wonderland. P.S. Don’t be surprised if the “paparazzi” are on your tail all night, trying to capture a photo op or two.

Whether you want to enroll in Hogwarts, go where the wild things are, or hitch a ride to outerspace, these family costume ideas will help you stand out from the crowd and make a statement.

So, “Pika” a theme, “Gabba” idea, and get to work on your own unique homemade family Halloween project!
