“A person should always choose a costume which is in direct contrast to her own personality.”

I used to be able to convince my family to dress up for Halloween as a family but it’s becoming harder and harder.  As of right now, Oliver wants to be Coraline, Milo wants to be a race car, and Piper wants to be some anime character that I’ve never heard of.   I think we’d be cute as the Good Place characters.  Matt would be an adorable Ted Danson.

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  Last year the boys were Ninja Turtles and Piper was Bob Ross.   The year before, I had a baby skunk and baby raccoon.  Amazon has some fun ideas too, I really love the Pete the Cat costume.   Maybe I can pick a theme, everyone’s favorite book?

Pinterest is full of amazing family costumes for halloween.  So many of these cool costumes don’t have attribution and it makes me so sad.  So I don’t claim any of the images below as my own.  The Labyrinth David Bowie costume photo above is mine.  It’s one of my favorite halloween memories ever, the babe with the power.

What are you going to be for Halloween?  Does your family wear matching costumes?

This is Halloween a couple of years ago, we had an astronaut. an alligator and Link from Zelda.   They refused to do anything as a group.

But my favorite costume that they’ve done ever is the Crocodile Hunter, The Crocodile, and Jane Goodall.  It was adorable!
