These Twin Halloween Costumes will Have You Seeing Double

If you and your sibling were once womb-mates, it’s highly likely that your mom dressed you to match once in a while. (Read: EVERY. SINGLE. SATURDAY. For the weekly trip to Grandma’s house…even if you weren'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 eggs? Peanut butter without jelly? Maverick without Goose? Face it: You’re better together, and so are all of these twin costume ideas.

Probably the most famous and enduring pair of twins of all time, the Mario Bros. is the perfect boys' twin costume idea. This Halloween costume idea works well for both identical and fraternal twin brothers, as Luigi is famously taller than his twin brother, Mario.


2. The Shining Twins Costume

Anyone looking for creepy twin costumes should look no further than The Shining's Grady twins. Is there anything scarier than two dead little girls blocking your path down an empty hotel hallway? (The answer is no. Kids in horror movies are always really, really creepy.) After you get the Grady twin dresses, you'll need to add some knee-high white socks and black buckled shoes to finish your twin costume idea.


3. Ghostbusters Costumes

Many of our twin costume ideas so far have come from pop culture, but maybe that's not your thing.

Certainly the most notorious pair of twins on this list, this Game of Thrones costume idea is not for the weak of heart.
