Just take a look at all the ads out there for Halloween Happy Hours and adult costume parties, and it is easy to see that Halloween is not just for kids anymore!
But, if you do have kids, you can make this a fun Holiday for the both of you, by going out in a themed “mother/daughter” costume.
Some favorite pairings I have done with my own daughter and that I have heard about from friends include matching costumes like two skeletons or two witches. Or it can be two different characters from the same show or film, like Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent or Morticia and Wednesday Addams.
The possibilities can be endless, limited only by your creativity, but here are 10 of the best!
- Mother and Daughter Minnie Mouse
This one can even be a mom and son pairing with mom as Minnie and son as Mickey. Other Disney ideas include Ursula and Ariel or Moana & Te Fiti, or Snow White and the Evil Queen
- Queen Bee and Baby Bee
This will have the whole neighborhood buzzing!
- A Tree and Her Little Birdie
Mamma as the tree and daughter as the little birdie who lives there is sure to have you tweeting some pictures!
- A Pair of Wonder Women
Strike a message for “Girl Power” with mother/daughter matching Wonder Woman costumes! (or any other pair of superheroes!)
- Cruella De Vil and a Cute Dalmatian
Your kid will love being “spotted” as one of those 101 Dalmatians, as you do your best evil glare!
- Rey and BB-8 From Star Wars
Moms can be nerds too! So why not embrace your inner Jedi as Rey, and your rolling bundle of joy of BB-8!
- Daenerys, Mother of Dragons
A friend of mine who is a big GOT fan made a real hit with this one. She merely wore a Game of Thrones “Mother of Dragons” T-shirt while carrying around her cute little toddler dressed as – you guessed it – a Dragon!
- Pebbles and Wilma Flintstone
If you are old enough to remember the original airings of “The Flintstones,” you probably are way too old to have a baby as tiny as Pebbles, but these prehistoric characters remain popular even for moms of today.
- Zombie Mommy
You can be cute and creepy as a Zombie Mommy and Undead Daughter. Or, for a twist a Zombie Mommy and badass Walker killer Judith Grimes from the Walking Dead!
- Alice and the Queen of Hearts
Slide down the rabbit hole, and take a wonderful stroll through Wonderland as a mother-daughter time of Alice and the Queen of Hearts.
