Unicorn Halloween Costumes for the Whole Family

Every Halloween since M was a year old, we’ve let her choose a costume and an overall family theme for Halloween. This year she waffled back and forth between spooky creatures and superheroes — and then she saw a unicorn horn and changed her mind completely! So, we are all being unicorns. I decided to buy various pieces to make our costumes (with M’s help) rather than getting pre-made outfits, because I think we can reuse some of the items for every day wear, or for dress up clothes for the kids.

Some of these are the actual items we have; some are very similar!

Matt’s costume is probably the most hilarious and/or horrifying. M picked out a black morph suit and a terrifying full sized unicorn head for him. I just need to find him shoes of some sort.

For herself, M selected a red tutu to go with her unicorn headband. She also picked out pink wings because I guess she’s a flying unicorn? I bought rainbow leggings and a rainbow jacket for her because Halloween is usually cold here and I want her to be cozy.

My costume is similar. M insisted I buy a rainbow tutu. I found myself my own pair of rainbow leggings and a flowery unicorn horn, and I’m sure I have a sweater or hoodie I can wear to keep warm.



And then there’s A’s costume! It will be his first Halloween and my biggest concern is keeping him warm and comfortable. I think I will either be wearing him in a carrier or pushing him in a stroller so I also wanted something fairly simple. And, there are no ready-made baby boy unicorn costumes I could easily find. So, I bought this knitted unicorn hat (there’s an adorable and inexpensive girly unicorn hat here!) and he’ll be wearing it with a warm white bunting we already own. Easy.

This is a fun theme and I love that M is still into picking out costumes for everyone. Hopefully we can keep it up and figure out how to make it a shared selection when A gets older!
