family Halloween Costumes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!  I don’t know what it is about family Halloween costumes but I just can’t get enough.  Last year we did Ghostbusters, the year before that we dressed up as characters from Pokemon Go and the year before that, the year that started it all, we did Star Wars.  One of these days I’ll make a gallery wall out of all these pictures and hang it up every October.  Or maybe I just need to make a little Shutterfly book with them all.  Either way, I cherish these photos so much and am going to be so sad when my kids don’t want to participate.  But I can’t even talk about that right now 😭!

For our family Halloween costumes this year we went with the classic fairytale Little Red Riding Hood.  I found THE cutest Little Red Riding Hood costume from Chasing Fireflies.  I’m new to their site but so far have had a great experience and their costumes are really pretty, all made out of nice fabric with great detail.  As I was adding up all the characters in the story I realized we had too many people.  I didn’t let that stop me, no.  I turned myself into the mom with the cookies and we had two wolves instead of one, which actually turned out really cute…

The wolf costumes are from Amazon.  I searched high and low for cute ones, there’s a lot of terrible wolf costumes out there haha!!!  I didn’t want to custom make anything or spend a fortune on Etsy so when I stumbled on these guys I was so happy!  They come with head pieces but I thought it was cuter to just have little ears on the boys.  The ears came from Great Wolf Lodge when we went there a few years ago.  And quick tip: buy your costumes in September.  Everything was SO much cheaper when I bought them than they are now!

I got this 50’s dress and apron from Amazon.  The cookies are Melissa and Doug, also from Amazon.  We’ve had them for years and they’ve definitely been a favorite with the play kitchen.  Thought they added a nice little touch to my costume, what do you think?!

Little Red Riding Hood and the Wood cutter

Now let me introduce you to my sweet little wood cutter.  He’s so cute, can you tell how sweet he is from his pictures?  The only things I needed for his costume were suspenders and the axe (Amazon), the rest came from his closet and they’re all from Gap!  I just used this palette for the brown and then took a black and brown eyeliner to draw on some whiskers.

NOW ARE YOU READY FOR THE BEST PART?!!!  Let me introduce Granny Brian haaahahahhaa

Family Halloween Costumes I literally could not stop laughing.  He was WERKIN’ IT and it made my whole life.  I can’t remember where I got his costume, but here’s another link for it.  It came with the wig which is ultimately why I chose it.  I had a few nightgowns on Amazon in my cart but at the end of the day I knew I needed the stuffing and the wig.  I was right. Granny Costume
