If you’re like me, you haven’t gotten around to making or buying Halloween costumes yet. But don’t despair, there’s still a week and a half to go and there are so many creative ideas out there you’ll sure to find one you like as well as your kids. Here are 10 of my favorite theme costumes for siblings or friends that will get a lot of comments at the doorstep.
Fantastic Mr Fox
Borrowing inspiration from the Wes Anderson’s version of Fantastic Mr Fox, these homemade costumes are spot on.

Soy Sauce + Sushi
If you’re not the sewing type, these costumes are available to buy from The Costume Cafe on Etsy. I think these would get a lot of attention.
Where the Wild Things Are
The decorated wagon is especially clever since the little ones usually can’t keep up. Let the wild rumpus begin!

I can see the masks getting heavy and stuffy by the end of the night but you have to admit the overall look is pretty great on this family costume.

Butterfly and Caterpillar
Most little girls would love any costume that involves wings and the little bundle dressed up like a caterpillar is the sweetest coordinated costume.

This nesting doll costume was just on one little girl but wouldn’t it be absolutely adorable if you did it on a whole family of siblings? The oldest would be the most round.
