Halloween already?!? Entertaining some family costume ideas...

It feels like Summer was just yesterday, but its already mid September and... time to think about Halloween!  

Like all new moms, I of course want to do a ‘family themed’ costume.  Something adorable for my 16 month old son, not to humiliating for my pregnant self, and of course super embarrassing for my husband! :) 

Here are some of the ideas I am tossing around! (if you know anywhere in the Greater Vancouver Area that has AWESOME costumes, please share!)

1.  Food!  

Hot dog we have a wiener!  

 An Adorable BLT!

Burger King (and Queen!) 

Who doesn't LOVE smores?
 Does this M&M sack make me look fat?  haha

2.  Superheroes!  Might be a little easier to walk around in! 
 The usual suspects

3.  TV Characters 

The beloved Simpsons

All time faves - The Flintstones

4.  Maybe I go super creative?!

The Bones Family?  
Shark Week!?


So many ideas - the problem? So little time!  Where in Vancouver do I get awesome costumes like these?  I don't dare even entertain the possibility of making them myself.  Unless of course I want them ready for Halloween 2025!  Etsy?  Michaels? Winners?  Suggestions please!  Any moms out there have some other good ideas?  I think the key (other than saftey of course!!) is comfort.  My son is 16 months old.  I don't think he'd be too happy walking around in a cardboard box - although he does seem to have an early obsession with my iPhone.  

Just ideas for now... but remember, Halloween is only 7 weeks to Halloween!  (then its... Christmas?!) 

Trick or treat!!

  1. Wow, what great family costume ideas for celebrating Halloween. I just loved this post as I can totally relate to this post. We too celebrated the Halloween day with so much fun, humor and funky activities. Had booked one of the best Venues in NYC for the day.
