9 Halloween Costume Ideas for the Whole Family

It’s the most frightening time of the year! Halloween is just 11 short days away, and people all over will be dressing up in costumes of all-star athletes, superheroes, TV characters and monsters. It’s so much fun to get those creative juices flowing and dress to thrill on Halloween night!

Dressing up together as friends and family can make the evening even more fun and memorable. Take a look at some of these Halloween costumes and turn your family’s holiday disguises into the scariest costume ensemble on the block!

Mario Kart Racers

Mario Kart has cemented itself as one of the most popular video games ever, and if everyone in your family has a bike, you can each dress up as one of your favorite Mario Kart characters and “race” from house to house on Halloween night.

Tubs of Play-Doh

With so many colors and an easy-to-draw logo, your entire family can dress up in some great DIY costumes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For a family of four, dressing up as the most radical pizza-eating turtles is the way to go! Not only will your costumes be the talk of the party, but they’re super easy to make as well.

Even though the Ninja Turtles have been around for more than 30 years, Renaissance-named amphibians are still totally righteous!

Characters from the Hundred Acre Wood

There are characters of all sorts in the Hundred Acre Wood, all of which are very cute and very memorable. What can make this costume idea really fun is matching up the personality of the Winnie the Pooh characters with the personalities of each person in your family.

All the Emotions of Inside Out

The movie Inside Out was one of the most unique movies ever created, and it explored all of our most basic emotions. This is another chance to match the personalities of your family to the personalities of the characters and bring out all the emotions with these fun costumes!

LEGO People

Everyone’s favorite building blocks can easily be brought to life for Halloween. You’ll be able to walk around the block as a yellow block that’s made from some cardboard, acrylic paint and yellow cleaning gloves.

Secret Service Agents

All that candy is going to be needing some extra protection (especially from parents!), so suit up and respond to the call to defend the all-American pastime of trick-or-treating.


With Pokémon making a huge comeback this year via the mobile app Pokémon GO, it would be fun to dress up as your favorite Pokemon or as any of the original Pokémon trainers. After all, on Halloween night, “Gotta catch em’ all” means getting all the candy you can!

Jurassic Park

This year’s Jurassic World did quite well at the box office, but there’s nothing like the original Jurassic Park. Head back to the Jurassic Era and walk with the dinosaurs with this fun costume idea.


We’d love to see your costumes, so before you head out to a costume party to show off your disguises, stop by your local Cheddar’s for a bite to eat.
