Best Coordinated Costumes For The Whole Family


Every year, I try to convince my kids to go with a coordinated theme for Halloween, and every year they defy me by choosing random costumes that have nothing to do with each other. This year, I’ve finally rallied the troupes and we are all going as Star Wars characters.

It can be a challenge to search for matching costumes, especially for a wide range of sizes, but I just discovered the group costume page at  It’s awesome . . . it allows you to punch in all of the genders and ages in your family and then you can drill down all of the available options. They also have an online fit finder to make sure everything fits before you order.

We used this website to choose our Star Wars costume, and it was nice to narrow down the options for the kids so they didn’t get distracted by the other costumes. Jafta chose Bobe Fet, Kembe will be Darth Vader, Karis is Queen Amidala and India is going as Asoka. I will be Princess Leia and Mark will be Han Solo. Photos to come!

Here are some other fun group costume options:

    Do kids these days even play Mario Brothers? If not, it's time for a lesson in video game awesomeness.

    Arrrrrgh! (Is that how that is spelled?)

    I feel like this is the quintessential family costume. Every member can get in on this one. Fake muscles optional.
