Subscribe to Reviewed's Resources newsletter for tips, tricks and hacks to get through this together.
1. A rainbow and a cloud
Available in sizes: 6M to 10 years old for the cloud; walking to 7 years old for the rainbow
There’s nothing cuter than a little kid dressed up as a rainbow—unless, of course, you can pair that kid with another shrimp parading around as a cloud. These rainbow and cloud costumes are fun, wearable in all weather, and look cute together.
2. Cher and Dionne from Clueless
Available in sizes: 5 to 12
Here’s an adorable costume that, frankly, is really probably just for us parents, but we’ll include it anyway. Turn your tiny tots into Clueless’ Cher and Dionne with these plaid skirt sets from Amazon. Dress them up with your version of Dionne’s iconic white hat and maybe a kid-friendly cell phone, and you’ll have an adorable picture to share with all your friends.
3. The Rockford Peaches
Available in sizes: 2T to 7/8
If you’re raising a couple of strong, sports-loving girls, consider dressing them up as the Rockford Peaches from the iconic 1992 film A League Of Their Own. The costume includes a Rockford Peaches dress, belt, and cap and could be complemented by either your own grown-up Peaches attire or a tiny toddler version of Tom Hanks’ Jimmy Dugan costume.
4. Thing 1 and Thing 2
Available in sizes: Newborn to 24M
Siblings—and especially twins—can never go wrong with a classic Dr. Seuss Thing 1 and Thing 2 costume. Bright, red and easily identifiable, these Things costumes are perfect representations of family togetherness. BYO Green Eggs And Ham.
Available in sizes: 2 to 4T for the doughnut; 7 to 10 years old for the bacon
Everyone loves waking up to a nice breakfast, whether it’s a sprinkle doughnut or a piping hot plate of bacon and eggs. Going as breakfast is a great way to put together a family costume, or just set up a group of siblings. There are all kinds of costumes out there—including a cute little Melissa & Doug diner server outfit—that could easily be mixed and matched to make the healthy and hearty Halloween breakfast of your choice.
6. Milk and cookies
Available in sizes: 2 to 4T for the solo cookie; youth medium and large for the solo milk; newborn to adult XXL for the set
Nothing could be sweeter than a set of siblings dressed as actual sweets. We love a good set of milk and cookies, which could be adapted to any number of kids, especially if you add a hungry Cookie Monster. As a plus, most milk and cookies costumes are pretty baggy, meaning they’d be great to throw on over jackets, sweats, or whatever your tiny trick-or-treater might need to wear to stay warm.
7. Sushi and soy sauce
Available in sizes: Kids 2 to 12 for the soy sauce shirt; one size fits most for the sushi roll; newborn to 3T for the salmon sushi
Another costume that’s easy to adapt for any number of siblings—or chef hat-clad parents— sushi and soy sauce costumes are easy to put together and can make an adorable impact. You can go as simple as a set of T-shirts or as complicated as custom sushi costumes for kids who can toddle around. If you want to get the family dog in on the action, you’re in luck: There’s a costume for that, too.
8. Peas and carrots
Available in sizes: 4-6 for the peapod; 7-10 for the carrot; newborn to 16 for the set
Some sets of siblings go together like peas and carrots. Dress your tots up like veggies with these delicious outfits, which can easily go over outerwear for those cold late fall evenings. If you’ve got a bigger brood, you can always expand to include corn, potatoes and tomatoes as well. You’ll practically have a whole salad!
9. Minnie and Mickey
Available in sizes: newborn to 24M for Minnie; 3 months to 24 months for Mickey
There’s no more classic pair than Mickey and Minnie Mouse. If you’re a family of Disney nuts, there are a whole bunch of great Mickey and Minnie costumes out there for kids, ranging from the minimal to the deluxe. There are all kinds of iterations out there as well, from roadster Mickey to cheerleading Minnie. Mix and match to your heart’s desire.
10. Toy Story’s Woody and Buzz Lightyear
Available in sizes: 3T to 8
Another group costume that can be adapted to fit as big a brood as you’re taking out on Halloween, the Toy Story gang is a perfect option for younger kids. While the classic pairing of Woody and Buzz Lightyear is always a solid option, if you’re looking to get creative you could always throw a Forky or Duke Caboom in there as well. To infinite candy and beyond!
11. Mike and Sulley from Monsters Inc.
Available in sizes: 2T to 6
If your kids are Monsters Inc. fans, you can’t go wrong with Mike and Sulley costumes. They’ll let your little monsters stomp around all night while still showing that they’re best of friends.
12. Copy and paste
Available in sizes: 0 to 24M
If you work in tech or have kids who are just into computers, consider adding a little nerdery to their costumes by making them Copy and Paste. It’s an especially effective costume for identical twins, or siblings who look a lot alike.
13. Elmo and Cookie Monster
Available in sizes: 2T for the Cookie Monster one-piece; 3T to 4T for the Elmo one-piece; 2T to 5T for the hoodies
We’ve mentioned Cookie Monster on here already, but who doesn’t love a good Sesame Street costume? Toddlers especially love looking like their furry monster friends. These are great costumes because, like Mickey, there really are a lot of versions of the costumes out there, from fuzzy hoodies to full body rompers. This is also another great costume for expanding throughout the family. After all, wouldn’t dad make a great Big Bird?
14. Zoo animals
Available in sizes: 12M for the lion; 0 to 30M for the elephant; 6 to 36M for the giraffe; 12 to 24M for the flamingo; 2 to 36M for the panda
If you’ve got wagon-bound kids, we love the idea of using the platform to create your own circus wagon or cage at the zoo. Throw your kids in a couple of animal costumes of their choosing, strap them in the wagon, and you’re ready to hit the town. Bonus points if you throw a ringmaster’s top hat or a zookeeper’s polo on yourself as well.
15. Characters from Grease
Available in sizes: newborn to 6T
There’s always something great about seeing a kid dressed up in greaser gear or a poodle skirt. Harness the power of the beloved movie Grease and turn your kiddos into Rydell High cheerleaders and T-Birds with these costumes. Slick your baby’s hair back or throw it in a high ponytail and you’re ready to go. They’re greased lightning, baby!
16. Max and Carol from Where The Wild Things Are
Available in sizes: 12 to 24M for Max; 18M to 10 years for Carol
Costumes based on classic kids literature are always adorable, and these Where The Wild Things Are outfits are absolutely no exception. Ask any parent, and they’ll tell you it’s almost always a wild rumpus when they’ve got two kids, so why not embrace it?
Available in sizes: 4T to 12
If your kids have Lego fever, help them embrace that love this Halloween with these Lego block costumes. Pile your kids up for a photo and then post the pic while announcing your building expertise. Congratulations, Lego Master.
18. Hansel and Gretel
Available in sizes: kids’ small to XL for the lederhosen; 3T to 14 for the dirndl; newborn to 5T for the set
A good costume for kids who might already have some cute clothes in the closet at home, Hansel and Gretel lets your kiddos live out a fairy tale while staying safely away from that all-consuming princess territory. If you’re feeling authentic, there are plenty of pairs of kid-sized leather lederhosen and tot dirndls on Amazon, but if you’re looking to get a bit more playful, there are also cute matching sets available on Etsy.
19. Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World
Available in sizes: newborn to adult for Wayne’s hat; 6M to adult XL for Garth’s shirt; 2T to 6T for Wayne’s shirt
Party on this Halloween with excellent kid-sized Wayne and Garth costumes. An Etsy seller has made incredibly accurate Wayne’s World caps for kids of all sizes—including newborns!—as well as Garth-style Aerosmith shirts. Grab a flannel and a set of nerd glasses on Amazon, and you’re ready to roll out to the Alice Cooper concert.
20. The dancing twins emoji
Available in sizes: 2T to 14
If you’ve got twin girls, there’s no easier Halloween costume than the dancing twins emoji. Throw your kids in leotards, grab a couple of black bows for the tops of their heads, and you’re all set. The only hard part will be getting them to sit still and pose for pictures.
21. Wednesday and Pugsley Addams
Available in sizes: 2T to 12 for Wednesday’s dress; 2T to 14 for Pugsley’s shirt and shorts
If your kiddos love a little spookiness around Halloween, they might make a great set of Addams siblings. There are plenty of kid-sized Wednesday dresses on Amazon, as well as pigtailed wigs. Pugsley’s even easier: Just pick up a striped shirt, some shorts, and put on a devious smile.
Available in sizes: 6 to 10
If your kids are always hanging out together, consider dressing them as a bunch of bananas. It’s an incredibly easy idea to pull off and, like others above, the costumes are great for layering on cold Halloween nights.
23. The twins from The Shining
Available in sizes: 18M to 5T
Another costume best aimed at twin girls, the little girls from The Shining is a Halloween classic. It’s super easy to pull off, too. Just pick up a blue dress, some white tights, and instruct your kids to stand close together with a glazed look, and you’re bound to strike fear in the hearts of Stephen King fans everywhere. Your kids might not get the reference, but tell them that it’s terrifying and they might just go along with it.
24. Luke and Leia from Star Wars
Available in sizes: 12 to 24M for Leia; 5 to 10 years old for Luke
Want to dress your little siblings like actual siblings this Halloween? Consider Luke and Leia costumes, especially if your house is firmly embedded in the Jedi world.

25. A cat and a witch
Available in sizes: 6 to 18M for the cat; 2T to 6 for the witch
A costume that’s especially great for a big sister and a baby sibling, a cat and a witch is another Halloween classic. You’ll want the cat to be black, of course, and you’ll want your witch taking good care of her. Throw some punch in the cauldron, give your witch a broom, and get ready to fly.
26. A rocket and an astronaut
Available in sizes: 3T to 6 for the rocket; 2T to 6 for the Pottery Barn astronaut; toddler to youth XL for the Amazon astronaut
If your kids are into space, NASA, and what’s up on the moon, they might be interested in going as an astronaut and a rocket this Halloween. Your kids might struggle over who’s what, but the rocket costume seems to have pretty generous sizing, so maybe you can even switch their outfits up for different Halloween events.
27 . A caterpillar and a butterfly
Available in sizes: 2T and above for the butterfly; 0 to 12M for the caterpillar
If you’ve got a little one and a toddler, think about convincing them to go as a caterpillar and a butterfly this October 31. If your shrimps are fans of Eric Carle’s beloved book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this is a great option, too, especially since you can actually pick up licensed caterpillar outfits based on the drawings in the book. Just don’t let them too eat their way through too much candy.
28. Snoopy and Charlie Brown
Available in sizes: 3T to youth L for Charlie Brown; 2T for Snoopy
A beautiful portrait of friendship, Snoopy and Charlie Brown have been palling around together for decades.
