Since I can still fit into my 9th grade cheerleading outfit (that’s a brag, not a humble brag), I have used it more than once on Halloween to coordinate with my son’s football player costume. I bet some of you would like to dress up in partnership with your babes as well. We love mom and baby Halloween costumes and whole family Halloween costumes, too. Here are 7 swell ideas on a range of creative themes.
Here are 7 super ideas for mom and baby costumes:
Wizard of Oz
Heather already declared her love for Princess Leia as a mom costume, which both masks a post-partum belly and allows kids of any age to be Luke Skywalker (only $16!) or any number of other Star Wars personality. So what if Leia and Yoda never actually interact in the legends? This day is about fantasy.
Toy Story crew
I like kiddo as Woody (or Buzz) and mom as Jessie. I saw a baby bib that turns a tiny one into Mr Potato Head. The outfits in the picture are available on Amazon, but even better for your toddler are the pajamas version of Woody.
The sports theme
You could accomplish this a number of ways like we did (top photo). Baby as football; mom as football player, referee, or cheerleader. This one is from etsy, but you can make it with a brown onesie and white tape or fabric paint.
Alternatively, baby can be a football player with a souvenir jersey and the right color leggings. Add black face paint under the eyes.
Order a referee shirt here. (Just add black pants. The whole thing they want to sell women as a referee costume is offensive. Of course, Sexy Referee! There’s also a teen version with a mini skirt. What?)
For Muppet fans, I kinda like baby as Kermit and mom as Miss Piggy, but I’m not wild about the way the Miss Piggy store-bought costume looks. A bigger mom would rock a Hollywood-style dress with Miss Piggy glamour style than the lady in this picture, so let’s forget about her and envision Adele instead.
Dad, please don’t try to join the party as Gonzo. It’s scary.
Olive Oyl and Sweet Pea from Popeye
If Dad wants to get in on this family costume, he can click on this Popeye costume. Swee’pea seems to be mostly held by Popeye in the cartoons anyway.
