Pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks, and Pinterest is full of cute fall decor. On one hand, it feels a bit early, but my girls’ Halloween costumes have been top of mind the past few days.
I don’t generally dress the girls alike on a day-to-day basis, but this will be their fifth Halloween, and to date, I’ve gone the “double the cuteness” route. Two pumpkins, two cheerleaders, two ladybugs, and last year, two butterflies.
(I should also note I’m taking full advantage of “cutesy” costumes for as long as I can…I know one day they’ll want to pick things out themselves, and a scary clown won’t be quite as adorable in the family photo album.)
Just for fun, I googled “Halloween costumes for twins”, and there are hundreds of “coordinating” ideas for multiples…
…salt and pepper shakers…peanut butter and jelly…apple and orange…lemon and lime…ketchup and mustard…M&Ms…peas in a pod…lion, tiger, and bear…cat and mouse…crayons…
And the character interactions are limitless, too…Thing 1 and Thing 2…Mickey and Minnie…Batman and Superman…king and queen…princess and dragon… Bert and Ernie…Charlie Brown and Snoopy…Buzz and Woody…
The funniest costume duo I read about was for boy/girl twins…a Mounds and an Almond Joy. (This was one family’s response to the many questions they got about whether their B/G twins were “identical”…hahaha!!!)
And another one that I thought was comical was “Peace and Quiet”. I can just envision printed shirts with those words…at least with my two, that would be a walking oxymoron!
Have you started thinking ahead to Halloween? Are you planning to coordinate your multiples? Have any fun ideas to share?
