Halloween Costume Ideas For Twins

Halloween Costume Ideas For Twins

I have always loved Halloween since becoming a parent, yet especially since I have become a Mom of Twins. Halloween Costume Ideas For Twins is so much fun! There’s an awesome challenge to find the perfect costumes for the Twins, and I have to admit I really like playing up the ‘Twin’ aspect when choosing.

My Twins were nuns on for their 1st Halloween, I just loved the ‘sister act’ idea.

Then, last Halloween I incorporated my oldest daughter in the theme, and they were Mary and her two little lambs. I posted a list last year, on some Twin costume ideas, and this year I thought of new ideas and made the list even bigger. When they were that lovely age of two and all – they were Lil’ Devils

Feel free to add your suggestion, let’s make this list even bigger next year.
Share your ideas!




  1. This is such a great list. Hubby wanted the boys to go as Batman and Robin and he is going as Alfred and I may go as Aunt Harriet or Catwoman, can’t decide.

  2. For Triplet’s and Beyond they could go as Scooby Doo characters. Toy Story characters {Buzz, Jessie, Woody and possibly Bullseye) would be fun too. The possibilities are fun!

    I love the sister act nuns!!!!!!

    Do you ever get dressed up? I have to because I work at an art college. One year I was a bum, I had a grocery cart with me. Another year I was Vincent Van Gogh, my ear was all wrapped up, I wore a stary night shirt, I had a red wig and mustache. This year I’m go to be a baker. I’m making all kinds of sweet treats for my students to have all day long.

    1. Hi Alissa.
      No, I’m not much of a dresser-upper. But, I have to this year though!
      And, I’m having a hard time with that – thanks for the suggestions!

  3. I love dressing my twins up for Halloween. Their first Halloween I dressed them up in pea pods for “2 peas in a pod”. Last year they were Thomas and James and this year my older daughter is joining in as Jessie and the twins are Buzz and Woody.

    Next year I’m hoping to get my daughter to be Tinkerbell and the twins Captian Hook and Peter Pan. However, as they get older I’m worried I am loosing more and more of my say.

    1. Awe, I love the 2 peas in a pod idea! I was going to do that for the Twins’ 1st Halloween, since they didn’t move much – but I left it until the day before!! {terrible!}.
      And believe me, it’s get so hard as they age – my daughter will be nothing but princesses!!
      {so very difficult!}

  4. Wow that’s a lot of ideas! Last year I wanted my hubby, me, and our little guy to dress up as gangsters, but we ended up in jack-o-lantern t-shirts instead. Yeah, party poopers lol! I can’t wait until next year after I have the baby & I have two to dress up. I’m thinking Woody and Jessie or an angel and a devil.

    1. The trick is to start early, I think.
      I know when I rush at the last minute, I settle – and it should be all about originality and fun, right?

      1. It was more the price of the costumes than anything lol. I wasn’t about to spend almost $100 on 3 costumes. At least Little Man had a real costume.

  5. Wow! You have an amazing long list of ideas! How did you come up with all of them! I bet its so fun having twins, yet oh so much work! :O) Cute!

  6. It looks like you did a lot of research on this. This was a great review and very infromative. The twins are so cute and that was a great idea to dress them as twin nuns.

  7. my mom, who is a twin, says the one costume she remembers wearing for halloween with her sister is Dice. They were a pair of dice together!

  8. Since when are only boys able to be doctors and lawyers? Should that suggestion not go under unisex?

  9. Pingback: Fick er Feet!
  10. Last year I dressed my 2 year old twin boys as playing cards….the 2 of spades & 2 of clubs. I used pillow cases. They turned out super cute!

  11. the last 2 places we have lived not many treaters. first house 8 second house zero. there is a little one next door so maybe this year in our new house I will get 1. I wish my girls were little so I could dress them up. they werent twins but I still dressed them similar.

  12. I love Halloween. Last year I dressed my 1 yr old twins as Pebbles & Bam Bam and I was Wilma.

  13. Fun list…Enjoyed reading. I’d love to see my twin nieces as a black/white cat!!! (I have an all white cat…Ivy)lol

  14. Wow you have some great ideas here. Thanks for the suggestions it will help when trying to think up costumes for the children.

  15. I love the nuns!! Great ideas, will pass this post on to a couple friends that have multiples!

  16. What a great list of ideas! This could also work for best friends that are going trick or treating together 🙂

  17. I saw a costume through face book of peter pan and the other person was the shadow peter pan I thought that was really cool

  18. Love your ideas! So creative and so cute. I would never have imagined half of those!

  19. This list is so much fun! I dont have twins but if I did I would absolutely be choosing a costume like one of these.

  25. Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you
    are just too excellent. I really like what you have acquired here, certainly like
    what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to
    keep it wise. I cant wait to read far more from you. This
    is really a wonderful website.

  26. These are great suggestions! Love the Lil’ devil costumes…way too cute!
    Must share…

  27. going to show this list to my friend who has twins and has been asking for ideas on Halloween Costumes

  28. Enjoy them at this age – my older girls are fifteen months apart but getting to that stage where they won’t be able to go out anymore.

  29. This is a fantastic list, Tammi! It takes the guess work out of such a huge decision. Sara was a bat a 3 months…finally a fairy at 20 and last year, a peacock at 25! She loves Halloween and dressing up for it.

  30. This is a great list! My sister once went as a Nun when everyone decided to dress up at the office…a pregnant Nun…she really got a lot of attention with that one!!! My Mum wasn’t terribly impressed!

  31. Thanks for the great ideas! I have a few friends with twins and they are always struggling what to do, they will love these ideas!

  32. Man, I always kind of wished I had twins. So I could dress them up in super adorable outfits.. love the salt and pepper shaker idea

  33. Brilliant ideas. I loved the ‘Sister Act’ and the ‘Lil’ Devil’s. Would have loved to have had a peek at’ Mary and her two little lambs’ unfortunately the photos didn’t come up. I love seeing little kids in costume but I myself don’t like getting costumed up.

  34. I could have sworn I’d already written a comment here but it doesn’t seem so as I can’t find it. I just love the Nuns in the Sister Act and Lil’ Devils too, the later being very appropriate for that age 🙂

  35. I have twin girls (will be 6 months in just a few days)- however, my friend is going to be bringing her 5 year old step son. Would any of you ladies have any ideas for costumes for the three of them?? If not a a whole, maybe just some ideas for just my twin girls? Any ideas are so greatly appreciated! Thank you and have a safe Halloween!

    1. Hi Angie, there’s a long list of ideas in the post – go with a theme, it’ll be so fun! Pokemon is huge right now, that’s be really cute too.

  36. When we were young my twin sister and I always tried to have costumes that went together.
