Costumes for Siblings Header

Halloween is the perfect time of year to dress up the kiddos in themed outfits for their yearly trick-or-treating debut. Matching Halloween costumes for siblings might be the cutest thing we've ever seen. The peanut butter to their jelly, the peas to their carrots, the Wookiee to their Han Solo. They are the best of friends and the younger siblings want nothing more than to be like their older brother or sister. Perhaps the older children will roll their eyes, but when the littles are included, it's enough to make your heart melt. No matter if you have two kids or twelve, we've got tons of costume combinations to make this the best Halloween yet!

DIY Stranger Things Costumes

If you are anything like the crew at HalloweenCostumes.com, there’s around an eight-hour gap missing from your life in the middle of last July. What happened in those hours? Well, friends, Stranger Things happened. On July 15th, 2016, Netflix launched the entire first season of their original show, an 80s-influenced sci-fi series that featured a group of D&D-playing middle schoolers, an alcoholic police chief, a psychokinetic little girl named after a number, and an internet fan-favorite named Barb. There’s so much to love about Stranger Things – the music, the characters, the nods and homages to all of our favorite creepy movies growing up, Steve… – so, it’s no wonder that this show is one of the biggest costume trends of the year. We obviously wanted to play along, but we knew we had to do something a little outside the box to compete with the other super creative cosplays out there. So we decided to start from the beginning…

Alien Heights Infographic

Ever wonder how your favorite alien species from pop culture stack up against each other? We like to imagine just what would go down if they would happen to cross franchises and go toe-to-toe with a species from another movie or TV series. Like, what would happen if Alf waltzed onto the set of Sesame Street and started sizing up Gonzo? (Hint: Alf has the height advantage.) Or what if old school sci-fi aliens faced off, like The Man from Planet X versus the mutant from This Island Earth? We're not sure what would be the bigger advantage, the glass helmet or super-sized brain!? And when it comes to the action packed sci-fi on the big screen, there's all kinds of heavy duty - and terrifying - creatures that could ruin anyone's day. The arachnid bugs from Starship Troopers, the terrifying xenomorphs from Alien, the rancor from Return of the Jedi, or even the the straight up meanies from ID4... well, we hope we never come to face to face with something the likes of them.
