35 Family Halloween Costume Ideas

I wouldn’t have expected that I’d be advocating for family Halloween costumes, but here I am. I’ve always aggressively rejected the “matchy-matchy” gimmick. If my wife and I were even wearing the same color shirt, I’d go change. But, perhaps I’ve fully embraced this dad role, because now I look forward to planning our family costumes on Halloween. This year, we’re themed out as Marvel’s Avengers, complete with padded-muscle costumes.

Each year, Reno Dads has also been a big supporter of PumpkinPalooza (Oct 21, 11am in Victorian Square – you should go). Last year, we saw thousands of costumes and amongst our favorites were the family costumes. I don’t know if it’s because it shows that you’re making an effort to celebrate Halloween, or if it’s because there’s just something about family unity that makes an impact. Either way, I want to encourage more family costumes, so I’ve curated a monster list below to provide you with some inspiration (as well as a photo gallery below the list).
