Easy Halloween Costumes for Your Family

Have you bought costumes yet for October festivities? October holidays are fun because no matter how you celebrate—neighborhood trick or treating, a church trunk or treat, or pumpkin picking and hayrides— it means FALL is officially here!  And you get to dress up. Enjoy this time with your family and start thinking costumes with these ideas.

Try a Sibling Set

It’s easy to find solid color shirts and pants in kids’ sizes. And bonus: these are wardrobe staples that could easily be reworn long after the candy has been eaten! This is a pretty simple DIY.


Dress as a bug. Usually bugs are unwanted little creatures. On Halloween, though what is cuter than a cute little bug dressed as one? Ladybug, bumblebee, even a spider seems acceptable for this one dressup night.

Go classic. You can’t go wrong dressed as any type of pumpkin or jack-o-lantern. Make it yourself or find countless versions at local retailers. There have been a lot of pumpkin costumes at our Rhea Lana’s fall events.

Be a fruit. Don a purple shirt and pickup a bag of purple balloons. What an easy costume to grape yourself! A pineapple or strawberry is sweet too! These fruit ideas are easy but still festive.

Dress as your pet. Puppies and kittens are cute so obviously a cute kid dressed as one is even better.

Join in on the fun.

We love this super silly idea that you could throw together with items you have sitting around the house. Tussle your hair, add a robe, gather up every stuffed kitty and you’re an old cat lady. Equally cute as a cat lady mom or daughter.
