  1. Those were all so awesome, of course, my favorite is the Doctor Who family. I wonder if I could talk my own children into dressing up as Daleks??? Maybe a Weeping Angel?

  2. Haha I love some of these!! We attempted a Yo Gabba theme last year but my son decided he would rather pass out candy. Therefore the costumes were an epic FAIL

  3. Those are SUPER cute ideas! My favorite has to be Up! My husband doesn’t dress up so we haven’t done a family costume but next year I’ll have two kids to dress up so I may just have to do something with them.

  4. Love the ideas here – they are so creative!
    My son was crazy over “Up” a few years ago and I hadn’t once thought of making a house out of cardboard. He’d have loved it!

  5. There are a lot of great ideas here! I think I would go for the Flintstones. Of course, I think my kids would prefer to me M&Ms… at least until they understand that they aren’t going to be covered in the ones you can eat.
