- Nightmare Before Christmas
Create iconic family costumes with The Nightmare Before Christmas pajamas. Dress like Jack Skellington and Sally with cute and comfortable styles for the entire family. Add a treat bucket shaped like a pumpkin and then accessorize with black glitter flats and a Halloween-themed headband.
Keep babies cozy with a matching The Nightmare Before Christmas bodysuit or one-piece zipper pajamas. They’ll look festive for family photos. Then, you can put them straight to bed in their cozy clothes made with bamboo viscose. Parents and big kids can wear matching graphic shirts and pajama pants to keep with the theme and stay comfy in any weather.
If you’re looking for simple costumes that make a statement, Halloween pajamas make getting ready a breeze. Add costume makeup or accessories to create unique outfits. After Halloween, you can still wear your PJs to bed. Costumes you can use more than once make your holiday eco-friendly.
- Skeleton Family
Skeletons are one of the most popular Halloween costumes! They’re also a tried-and-true theme for your family. Plenty of matching one-piece and two-piece outfits look like full-body skeletons. These clothes pull off or zip up and make it easy to get ready.
Your family will look polished in the same style. The only thing you’ll need to finish the costume is white shoes or socks and bags or treat buckets. These outfits make it simple to move and stay comfortable.
Make it easy to change your baby with a bodysuit or zip-up pajamas. Older siblings can wear pajama pants with a matching short sleeve or long sleeve skeleton top. Mom and Dad can match the kids by choosing a one-piece or two-piece set. Combining different styles will keep your family’s look fresh and photo ready.
- Family Safari
Is your family a little wild? Bring them on a Halloween adventure! A family safari is a fun idea that lets everyone have their own costume. Parents and big kids can be safari explorers while the little ones dress like adorable animals.
If you’re dressing up as a safari ranger, break out the tan and khaki clothing. Khaki shorts and a matching pocket shirt make the perfect costume for your journey through the savanna. Wear socks and boots you already have in your closet. Finish the look with a tan bucket hat and a pair of binoculars.
Babies and toddlers can dress like the wildlife you encounter on your trip. Some of the most popular safari animals include leopards and lions. Little ones look adorable as elephants or zebras. There are also plenty of giraffe costumes and ways to DIY a cheetah or gorilla outfit. Everyone will be impressed by your Halloween creativity! You may even win a costume contest.

- Groovy Hippies
Channel your inner flower child with groovy hippie costumes for the family. Hippie clothes are always cute and easy to put together. Best of all, you can DIY everyone’s costume with clothes in your closets. All you need are a couple of bohemian accessories for a far-out look.
Flares and wide-leg jeans make perfect hippie pants. Moms and their little girls can wear flower pattern skirts or paisley print dresses. Bell sleeves and faux leather vests give off groovy vibes that are perfect for a Halloween party.
Don’t forget to add denim jackets and flower power headbands. Tie-dye shirts and baby bodysuits are also welcome! Some babies look and feel their best in a neutral-colored one-piece suit with matching moccasins and a groovy bow. Peace sign necklaces and earrings complete your free-spirited look, but don’t forget to flash the peace sign to your friends to spread good vibes.
- Fruit Bowl
Everyone has a favorite fruit! Let the family show off their picks with this adorable fruit bowl costume idea. It’s a unique and creative theme that makes for cute photos and a Halloween to remember. You can create your looks at home with kids’ clothing essentials and a few craft supplies.
Baby and toddler bodysuits with fruit prints make it easy to dress your little one. Pick up a banana or strawberry suit and then add a cap and socks in a matching yellow or red color. If you have solid-colored bodysuits, you can add embellishments or iron-on patches. Feel free to use craft paint to draw a design that looks like a watermelon or an apple.
Everyone else can wear a matching pajama set in a solid color, like green for kiwi or blue for blueberries. Paint on seeds or detailing and then add accessories to make your costume look more like your favorite fruit. A black beaded necklace can look like kiwi seeds, while a blue newsboy cap is perfect for dressing as a berry. Vary your fruits for a colorful rainbow that looks amazing in photos.
- A Royal Family
Everyone wants to be a pretty princess or a daring prince, but Mom and Dad are the king and queen. A royalty theme is truly magical for everyone in the family. It’s fun and easy for everyone to dress like a royal court member, so break out those jackets and costume dresses!
Every outfit should be flowing and fancy. Babies and girls are the stars of the night in sweet pink or purple dresses with matching booties or ballet flats. Little boys can wear black or red bodysuits with accessories like a cape or prince sash.
Let Mom shine in a dress from a previous formal event. Or choose a fun casual 80s fancy dress to go with a costume cape. Shiny heels are appropriate, but you can also wear gold or silver flats if you plan on trick or treating.
Dads look regal in black or gray dress pants. Pair them with buttoned suit jackets in royal colors like cobalt blue or maroon. A cape will make the look official, but you can also add a sword or staff.
It’s easy to find toy crowns at a party store or a Halloween shop. They may even have them at craft stores or on discount shelves. Feel free to include treat buckets that look like unicorns or dragons.
- Group of Ghosts
Ghosts scream Halloween, but they’re also one of the easiest costumes to assemble. Everyone will know you’re a family of spirits, no matter how simple your costume design is. For this theme, we always recommend white bodysuits for babies and toddlers. Cut pieces of black felt into eyes and mouth. Arrange them to look like a gasping ghost and then use an adhesive like hot glue or fabric glue to attach them.
The bodysuit is all you need to create the perfect ghost costume! Add white socks or shoes and a matching cozy cap. Parents can look as ghastly as their little ones with a white T-shirt or dress with the same DIY design. Wear white pants or leggings for your bottoms. Accessorize with headbands or ghost earrings.
Some family matching ghost pajamas even feature ghost faces. You can pick up a set and let everyone wear the same outfit. Mom can elevate her look with spooky accessories, like black platform boots and a cardigan sweater. A black collar necklace embellished with crystals takes stylish Halloween outfits to the next level.
