I love Halloween and it is so fun to get the whole family involved including your pets! I am a HUGE fan of family themed costumes. If I could convince everyone, we would always have a Halloween theme. When my youngest was just a baby, my older daughter was in her Disney Princess phase. She dressed as Ariel and my baby girl was Sebastian.
What was great about the Ariel costume is that we used it for dress up for many years after that and even brought it with us to Disney World. Most Halloween costumes work great all year round for pretend play and dress up. This is a great time to check out costumes for your dress up bin too. BuyCostumes has Orange Tag Specials for only $10! New items are added each week. There is a super cute witch costume on sale this week for just $10!
The next themed costume we used was Alice in Wonderland. I was only able convince them since our dog was the white rabbit! These are my absolute favorite costumes they have worn.
Look at the super cute pocket watch detail on the White Rabbit dog costume.
Some other family Halloween costume themes I have considered in the past are Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. I have a friend whose family dressed in the Star Wars theme and it was so fun and festive! I just love the toddler R2D2 and dog Yoda costume!

This year my youngest is going as Hermoine from Harry Potter but my older daughter isn’t sold on the theme this year. We already bought the scarf and headband when we visited theWizarding World of Harry Potter. I have been on the hunt for a Dobby costume for our dog. I wonder whether the Yoda ears could be made to look like a house elf. What do you think?
