Who says Halloween is just for kids? Not me! Halloween is fun for the whole family, especially when you come up with family Halloween costume ideas. It’s fun to play dress up as a whole family.
I love homemade costumes, but after years of making our costumes this year I was tired. Plus with an October birthday for Sissy I am busy planning the perfect birthday party. About the time I made that decision not to make costumes this year the Chasing Fireflies catalog arrived in my mailbox. My girls poured over the costumes, ohhing and ahhhing at every page.
After much family debate, it was decided that we would be mermaids and dad our handsome Prince Eric curtsey of Chasing Fireflies! (Yes, even a Disney reference for non-Disney costumes!)
My family of royal mermaids.
The decision-making process was long. Each of my girls had their own idea of the perfect costume from Chasing Fireflies. K wanted to be a Candy Princess, Sissy wanted to be Jessie from Toy Story, I wanted us to be witches.
Ultimately, the sequined mermaid princess costumes won. It really couldn’t be more perfect – K’s favorite color is pink and Sissy’s green!
