As a parent, it’s so much fun taking your kid out trick or treating on Halloween night. The night is all about your child’s quest for candy while being in costume as one of their favorite characters. The fun doesn’t have to be as simple as that, though. You can up your costume game and dress up alongside your little one! Here are 10 creative Halloween costume combinations for kids and adults who want to follow the same dress-up theme.
1. Star Wars
Star Wars costumes are always big around Halloween. While there are many iconic Star Wars duos to choose from, Luke Skywalker and Yoda are the perfect duo for a parent with a toddler. What better way to carry a little one around while completing your Jedi training? By “Jedi Training,” using The Force to get candy.
2. Toy Story
Buzz and Woody are friends to the end. Believe it or not, Toy Story is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in 2015 so it’s already becoming a timeless classic that people of all ages enjoy! If you bring your child out on Halloween dressed in Toy Story costumes, you’re sure to be in for an unforgettable adventure!
3. Batman and The Joker
Maybe instead of dressing as a pair of good guys, you and your child want to face off head-to-head and dress up in coordinating Batman and Joker costumes for Halloween. Much like a parent's struggle to get their kids to clean their room, Batman has been trying to get the Joker to clean up his act for quite some time now.
4. Despicable Me/Minions
Like or not, Minions aren't going away anytime soon. The Minions starred in their very own adventure this year and another Despicable Me film featuring the goofy yellow guys has been announced for 2017. Maybe your child is already as mischievous as a minion? Then why not dress up as Gru and put them in a minion costume so they can express their true colors!
5. Prince and Princess
Princess costumes are always some of the most popular Halloween costumes. Why not make your little girl feel like a princess by dressing up as a prince to match? Popular duos include Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Prince Charming, and Aladdin and Jasmin. Turn her wagon into a magic carpet, and you'll really have a stand-out look!
6. Monsters Inc.
Mike and Sulley are quite the fun duo and dressing in monster costumes for Halloween is always a popular (and warm!) choice. The unique thing about the Monsters Inc. characters is that, with the height difference, it’s almost a perfect fit as if this were made for a kid and adult pairing.

7. Aurora and Maleficent
