6 Family Costumes to Win Halloween This Year

By De and Kate

Halloween is just around the corner, and depending upon the kind of person you are, you might have absolutely nothing planned. (Unless you bought your costumes back in July, which is seemingly when Target started putting their Halloween section together because time is a flat circle these days.)

If you have kids, they probably only have candy on the brain (or, if they’re too young to understand the concept of Trick-or-Treat, the break in routine is excitement enough). But as an adult, especially a millennial, there’s probably something you’re thinking about more: The costumes. And, subsequently, the Instagram post. Right? Right.

Just as it’s essential to roll out the matching family pajamas on Christmas morning, the coordinating family Halloween costumes are a guaranteed double-tapper. Bonus: if your kid is young enough not to have an opinion of their own (hint: not to request to be Elsa for the zillionth year in a row), you basically can decide what everyone wears.

Ahead, check out some ideas for group family costumes — and where to buy. Last minute moms, we’ve got your back.

The Flinstones

Halloween is on a Thursday this year, so we may as well keep the #TBT theme going. Because, if you grew up in the 90s, is there really any chance you weren’t eating (more than the suggested serving size) of Flinstone vitamins while watching the cartoon? We think not.
