Family Halloween costumes are a great way to get creative this autumn with so many fun ideas to choose from. 

Sorting out kids' Halloween costumes (opens in new tab) is an autumn tradition but what happens when you've got a big Halloween party? Or you're all going out trick-or-treating? Family Halloween costumes make the situation so much easier as you've only got to think of one set of characters and do one online shop for supplies. Plus, they're sure to be a winner on Instagram and make the family photo album.

Whether you're a fan of the Disney movies or prefer more of a classic spooky Halloween outfit from one of the famous Halloween movies for kids and adults (opens in new tab), we've got you covered with our selection of the best family Halloween costumes. We’ve even got a guide to pregnant Halloween costumes (opens in new tab) too!

2. Monsters Inc.

All eyes are on Mike Wazowski in this adorable family Halloween costume idea. While Sulley and Boo are a perfect Halloween couples costume, this extra addition of Mike is perfect if there's three of you in the family, as you can complete the trio from the films. While you'll probably need to buy the Sulley onesie, and baby Mike too, Boo's costume you can probably make from home with an oversized purple t-shirt, leggings and plimsoles.

3. The Addams Family

This is a real family Halloween costume staple! If your family is kooky like this one, there's surely not a better outfit to get for Halloween. It's an easy one to do no matter how many there are of you in the family as well, as long as Mum and Dad can get the garb for Morticia and Gomez Addams, you'll be instantly recognisable. Kids can dress up as Wednesday and Pugsley, while babies can fit into the mix with a baby grow tux.

And much like our other family Halloween costumes, you can get what you need from Amazon (opens in new tab).

You could also dress the kids up as Oompa Loompas or even a golden ticket from a different approach to this great costume.

If there are baby twins in your family or you have two children of a similar age, a Cat in The Hat family costume is a great option.

If you want to stick to something a little more traditional this month, a coven of vampires is a ready-made family costume. Each member of the family can make their costume their own with the classic trickles of fake blood, hair styles and dark costumes and, of course, those pointy teeth. If you have a baby and they're a little too young for a vampy makeover, try this super cute bat costume (opens in new tab).

Along with the tiger onesies for the kids, adults will need a vibrant shirt and a mullet wig for Joe Exotic, a flower crown and bright shawl for Carole Baskin.
