The best part about Halloween has to be the candy. The second best part, however, is coming up with a fun, creative, or scary costume. And one of the best parts about having multiples is coming up with those fun, creative, or even scary costumes that will make everyone else wish they had twins or triplets…at least for the day.
In search of costumes for your kids? Here are a few ideas that are sure to grab some attention, and most of them are easy to put together. Still need ideas? Check out the slideshow on the left for more.
Boy/Girl twins: Have some fun with your favorite characters!
Woody and Jessie from Toy Story 2 and 3
Elmo and Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street
Minnie and Mickey Mouse
Charlie Brown and Lucy: a blue dress and black wig works best for Lucy.
Angel and devil (also works well with same sex twins — good luck deciding who is who!)
Same sex twins: The possibilities are endless. Dress them alike, dress them coordinating, or let them choose totally different costumes!
Thing 1 and Thing 2 (works well with boy/girl twins as well). Let an older sibling or parent dress as the Cat in the Hat!
Cowboy and Indian
Superheros: Batman and Robin, Superman and Spiderman, Supergirl and Wonder Woman, even Power Rangers.
Ladybug and Bumble Bee
Triplets: This is the time to really get creative with tons of options.
Wizard of Oz Characters: Your brood could include any combination of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion.
The Three Stooges
Pooh, Tigger, and Eyeore
Three Little Pigs — each pig can carry a toy brick, bundle of twigs, and small bale of straw
Three Blind Mice — white suits, sunglasses, canes…how easy could it get?
Older Kids/Adult Twins: Many of the above ideas also work, but older kids and adults also get the chance to try something a little more mature.
The Matrix Twins
Harry, Ron or Hermione from Harry Potter
Alice in Wonderland: take inspiration from the Tim Burton version for a more mature feel.
Halloween is a great opportunity to release some creativity, get dressed up, and snack on some yummy treats. Happy Halloween…times two or three!
