Tips For Family Halloween Costumes
Dressing up together is one of the best ways to celebrate Halloween. It always makes for the cutest pictures and the most laughs. No matter how old your kids are, family costumes are a ton of fun!
As you browse the ideas below, keep these tips in mind.
Check The Weather
Try to pick out costumes that will look good with a jacket or coat if you live somewhere that it gets really cold. Don’t let rain ruin your fun – bring an umbrella! If you are driving to a party, the jackets won’t be as important.
Keep It Comfy
Some costumes just aren’t built for comfort, especially for adults. Read the reviews and check the material it’s made of. Homemade costumes will be better than some store-bought ones. Try to buy costumes made of cotton, jersey, or fleece, if you can.
The costumes on my list below are all comfortable for the entire family.
Make Costumes Yourself
If you see a costume in the list below that you can make – do it! There’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment when you make something yourself.
Plus, it’s tough to follow sizing charts online. When you make costumes yourself, you will know for sure they will fit!
Buy Character Pajamas
As a last-minute costume, character pajamas are a wonderful choice! They are super-comfy, affordable, and easy to find. Imagine how cute your family will look, all wearing character PJs in the same theme!
Here you go! Browse the ideas, click through to the stores, and add to cart! It’s as easy as that!
