If you and your sibling were once womb-mates, it’s highly likely that your mom dressed you to match once and awhile (read: EVERY. SINGLE. SATURDAY. For the weekly trip to Grandma’s house) … even if you aren’t identical … or the same gender. You can’t really blame her; there are few things cuter than matching babies. By now, however, we’re going to guess that you’ve developed your own sense of style (entirely separate from your brother or sister). But when it comes to pulling off an impressive Halloween costume idea, twins have a built-in buddy -- so why not grasp on to your lifelong wingman for the assist? What is bacon without the eggs? Peanut butter without jelly? Maverick without Goose? Face it: You’re better together, and so are all of these twin costume ideas.
Costumes for SIBLINGS
Tweedle-Dum Costume - Shop Tweedle-Dee Costume - Shop Luke Skywalker Costume - Shop
Princess Leia Costume - Shop He-Man Costume - Shop She-Ra Costume - Shop
Pioneer Man Costume - Shop Pioneer Woman Costume - Shop
Let’s start off real easy: Siblings. Who knows the motivation of these characters better than you and yours? He-Man and She-Ra were "Masters of the Universe" with the common bonds of fighting against Skeletor and defending the honor of Castle Grayskull – proving that teamwork makes the dream work. Our favorite pick in this category, though, has to be the Grady Twins from The Shining. Not only are they super creepy, but they also take you back to your matchy-matchy roots. This look goes to the next level by holding hands whenever you enter a room. Bonus points for a well timed “come play with us.” Other sibling contenders are Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

Some siblings are polar opposites of one another, but not you guys. You complement each other in every way. Maybe you finish each other’s sentences, maybe you don’t. The fact of the matter is there’s no need for twinsie parlor tricks to know you mesh. Perfect pairs are just that – perfect. Salt and pepper, pizza and beer, yin and yang; some things are just innate. Like Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm! They were the best playmates, and who doesn’t like an excuse to carry a club? For those that are a little wilder, Thing 1 and Thing 2 instantly become the life of the party. Laurel and Hardy, Zuko and Kenickie, Cher and Dionne, Wayne and Garth, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey – Alone they’re good, but, like you two (and the Wonder Twins!), when their forces combine, they’re great.
Costumes for ALTER EGOS
Superman Costume - Shop Clark Kent Costume - Shop Mr. Hyde Costume - Shop Dr. Jekyll Costume - Shop
Girls Diva Dress Costume - Shop Pop Star Cowgirl Costume - Shop
Sometimes twins refer to one as “the better half.” This notion is personified easily with classic devil and angel disguises. We went with the “total opposites” approach and thought Batman and Joker would be a fun “good” vs. “evil” embodiment. And then we went deeper. If there’s light and dark in all of us, how about a few alter ego ideas? Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus, David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust, Beyonce and Sasha Fierce – there’s just something about a split personality! Twins that know their way around a laboratory would look great paired up as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Not much for wielding a scalpel? No worries, Clark Kent and Superman can leap tall buildings in a single bound AND get the Daily Planet their story by five.
Costumes for Twin SISTERS
Frozen Elsa Costume - Shop Frozen Anna Costume - Shop I Love Lucy Costume - Shop
I Love Lucy Ethel Costume - Shop The Simpsons Patty Costume - Shop The Simpsons Selma Costume - Shop
White Christmas introduced the world to “The Haynes Sisters,” and they have remained the definition of #SisterRelationshipGoals ever since. If you’ve got the chops, pick up a set of ginormous feather fans and take your act on the road! Let’s be real, you secretly feel bad for any non-sister/sister twins because you know how great it is to always have someone by your side. The Thelma to your Louise. The Lucy to your Ethel. The Anna to your Elsa. She’s your partner in crime, the wind beneath your wings, and the encourager of “one more glass of wine,” when you’ve had a rough day. Who else would you want by your side well into the witching hour?
Costumes for Twin BROTHERS
Mario Costume - Shop Luigi Costume - Shop Goonies Sloth Costume - Shop Goonies Chuck Costume - Shop
Dumb & Dumber Lloyd Costume - Shop Dumb & Dumber Harry Costume - Shop
Straight from the crib, you were instant playmates! The biting and kicking each other as babies turned into all night Xbox battles and doing dangerous tricks on your bikes as teens (and probably adults) – through it all, you and your brother are still two peas in a pod. Thanks *in part* to “The Property Brothers,” twin bros have been getting a lot of attention as of late. They have reiterated the sentiment that “yes we look alike, but no, we’re not the same.” Still, there’s nothing wrong with being in sync with each other. Mario and Luigi bonded over Italian food, their careers (plumbing) and a shared annoyance with King Koopa. If you two are less blue collar and more black tie, you could always channel Jake and Elwood. The Blues Brothers need to know how to sing and dance, but they also need a crisp suit, hat, and a pair of sunglasses. No matter what you two decide to be, one thing is for sure: It takes two to make a twin costume go right.

Baby Supergirl Costume - Shop Baby Cow Costume - Shop Baby Pig Costume - Shop
Having twins means double the tiny feet, cooing in stereo, and two times the love. It’s a lot of work, sure, but watching them connect with one another makes it totally worth it. Moms and dads know that their twins are individuals with unique characteristics and qualities, but what mere mortal parents could stop themselves from bringing their kiddos together in matching outfit solidarity – especially when they seem to complete each other so perfectly? None! Even if they could, why start at Halloween? There are just too many adorable twosomes in the world! Those cute little twins go together like peas and carrots, and if you’re asking yourself, “do their baby books need another matchup photo op?” The answer is always YES.
“We go together like rama lama lama ke ding a de ding a dong”
