Family Halloween costumes are so fun, especially this beetlejuice family costume!
You can keep it simple with a mummy costume or go all out like this family does. Get mom and dad involved or just go with a kids only theme. Either way, it’s sure to be a fun filled October 31st! Grab our Halloween Activities Printable for a little fun at your next Halloween gathering.
Family Halloween Costumes
This family in our neighborhood always knocks it out of the park with the BEST themed costumes! Whether they are killing it as the Beetlejuice family costume clan or as the characters from Harry Potter (our Harry Potter party food makes a great accompaniment), they do not hold back.
Not every them has to be this intensive though. You can keep it simple and classic or go more modern. You can also do easy versions of your favorite groups of people or even go store bought.

Beetlejuice Family Costume
Find an old couch or chair at the Goodwill and get ready to create the most EPIC family Halloween costume ever! Whether you will be doing just a couple or a few of the characters, it’s going to great.
- Lydia Deetz
- Adam Maitland
- Barbara Maitland
- Delia Deetz
- Miss Argentina Receptionist (green girl)
- Harry the Hunter (small head)
- Magicians assistant (blue girl cut in half)
- Witch doctor
For the magicians assistant, cut a hole in the couch so the person dressed as her can sit inside. Make her legs to put next to her on the couch by stuffing black tights with blue pool noodles then add a skirt and shoes.
Easy Family Costumes
- Cops and Robbers
- Star Wars Cast
- Cowboys and Indians
- Alice in Wonderland
- Peter Pan
- Toy Story
- Wizard of Oz
- 101 Dalmations
- Circus (get some circus treat ideas from our whimsical circus party)
- Harry Potter Cast
- Batman, Robin, Ivy and more from that movie
- Scooby Doo
All of these can easily be done DIY style or bought online. They aren’t too complicated and can usually be used for large families and small families alike.
Couples Halloween Costumes
- Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz
- Barbie and Ken
- Buddy the Elf and Jovi
- Avocado Halves

Again, you can go all out on these or you can DIY most of them. Many can also be bought online for pretty cheap. The food possibilities for couples costumes are endless too if you need more ideas. Historical couples are also great ideas but there are too many to name.
