Twenty Halloween Costume Ideas for Dad & Kids!

Need some inspiration for planning a Dad and Kiddos Halloween costume?  Check out these twenty fun and creative ideas--from spooky to funny to downright cute--and plan your best Halloween yet!  (Pro tip for Dads:  If you dress up with your kids, they *might* even be willing to share some of that candy!)

 Sally and Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas:  These spooky yet endearing costumes could be worn again...for Christmas!  Win-win!

Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World: These costumes are most excellent, and will not make you want to spew!  Party On! 

Darth Vader and, um, Princess Vader from Star Wars: We don't remember this character from the movies, but she sure is cute!  Luke...she is your...other sister?  I guess?

Mario and Princess Peach from Mario Bros.: After lots of hopping over mushrooms, collecting coins, and jumping down pipes, looks like Princess Peach has finally been rescued!  Time to celebrate by eating 17 mini Snickers!

Ash Ketchum and Pikachu from the Pokémon Universe:  Wait a minute...who's catching who?

Ghostbusters and the Stay Puft Marshmallow: When there's something strange in your neighborhood, these costumes are perfect.  (Side note: I ain't afraid of no ghost--usually--but this baby marshmallow is TERRIFYING! Yikes!!!)

Russell and Carl from Up: We recommend limiting the amount of helium balloons in this costume... you don't want your li'l trick-or-treater to fly away!

Ariel and King Triton from The Little MermaidYes, you can be part of that world!  (Side note: the easiest way to get abs is to purchase a shirt with built-in abs). 

Harry Potter and Hagrid:  Attention Dads!  Here's a magic spell to make some free candy appear... take your kid trick-or-treating!  Accio Starburst! 

Batman and Joker:  Let's put a smile on that face!!!  (In a nice way). 

A Beekeeper and a Honey Bee: Now this costume sure is sweet.  (See what we did there?)

Waldo and another Waldo: I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for two Waldos this whole time!  Waldos are very tricky, and so good at hiding! 

Gomez and Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family: These costumes are creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky. In conclusion, they're altogether ooky!  Bonus points if a severed hand follows you around!

Dad and Mini-Dad: If you can get your kid to dress up as you... I think you win Halloween.

Bob and Louise Belcher from Bob's Burgers: Bring your favorite cartoon burger chef to life, along with his most mischievous child!!

Doc and Marty McFly from Back to the Future: Flux capacitor not included!

Boxers and a Referee:  In this corner, I have a cute kid.  In this corner, I have another cute kid!!

Remy and Linguini from Ratatouille: Cook up an adorable costume!

Ghost Dad and Ghost Kid:  It's a classic for a reason!

Bonus Round!!!  Elsa, Elsa, Elsa, Elsa, Elsa, and Elsa from Frozen: Last but certainly not least, we just couldn't let this one go.  Turn your neighborhood into a frosty wonderland with a posse of Elsas!
