50 Halloween Costume Ideas for Twins

Looking for some twin or coordinating Halloween costume ideas?  Here’s a quick list to get you started. Now, even after compiling this list, I’m still not sure what our own little guys will be this year.  I do have some ideas, but no favorites just yet.  I’m also thinking I might have two little trick-or-treaters wanting their own vote in the matter, but for now we’ll have to just wait and see.
 (Note: A few of the ideas contain links that will either take you to a retailer carrying that costume or a DIY site with a “how to” create your own.) 


Superman & Clark Kent – My personal favorite.
Batman & Robin – More caped crusaders.
Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde – Hmmm, who would be whom?  Depends on the day.
Mario & Luigi – Bib overalls, anyone?
Fred & Barney – Bedrock neighbors.
Bert & Ernie – Best Sesame Street buds.
Austin Powers & Dr. Evil – Perfect for little bald babies!
Pinky & The Brain – One is a genius…
Lightning McQueen & Mater – Let ’em drive their favorite “cars” made of cardboard boxes.
Peter Pan & Captain Hook – Who wants to grow up, anyway?


Kerri Walsh Jennings & Misty May-Treanor – Don’t forget the gold medals!
Lucy & Ethel – Because we all love Lucy.
Thelma & Louise – A little red wagon would double nicely as a convertible.
Golden Girls – But which two to choose?
Willma & Betty – First ladies of Bedrock.
Sally Ride & Amelia Earhart – First women in flight.
“Rose” & “Daisy” – A play on flower names?
Madame Curie & Jane Goodall  – Famous women in science.
The Duchess Kate & Pippa Middleton – A royal idea?
Dorthy & Glenda – Or, the Wicked Witch.


Mickey & Minnie Re-use those mouse ears!
Farmer & Wife – From the famous painting; just make sure they don’t smile.
Cleopatra & Julius Caesar – An epic pairing.
Pebbles & Bam Bam – Even better if you can pull off the pig-tail.
Adam & Eve – Grab a few leaves this fall and you’re all set.
Kermit & Miss Piggy – Might be pretty easy to be green, actually.
Sonny & Cher – I’ve got you, Babe-y.
Shrek & FionaA modern fairy tail pair.
Lightning McQueen & Sally – Can’t go wrong with the cardboard box cars.
Popeye & Olive Oil – A can of spinach is a must.
Romeo & Juliet – A pair of star-crossed cuties.
Jack & Jill – Just don’t forget a pail for fetching water.
Daisy & Donald – Duck, that is.
Peter Pan & Tinker Bell – Clap if you believe!
Superman & Lois Lane – Again with superman, but what a classic.

Gender Neutral

Ketchup & Mustard – Red and yellow suits and some cone hats.  Done!
Peanut Butter & Jelly – With a name like Smuckers…
Salt & Pepper – All you need is a little shake.
Macaroni & Cheese – Mmmmm…
Fork & Spoon – Crafty with aluminium foil?
Snoopy & Woodstock – Peanut pals for life.
Right Shoe & Left Shoe – Somehow this “pair” could be clever and cute, right?
R2-D2 & C-3P0 – For the Sci-Fi fans.
Rocky & Bullwinkle – Trick-or-treat with moose and squirrel.
Tom & Jerry – A little fun with with cat and mouse.
Toothpaste & Toothbrush – You brush your teeth, ch-ch-ch-ch…
Two Peas in Pod – A classic, but always cute.
Thing 1 & Thing 2 – Easy to find on-line, or make your own.
Moon & Stars – Black clothes + yellow felt + glitter.
Peas & Carrots – A sensible choice.

Happy Halloween costume creating and shopping!




  1. great list! Though having a star wars nerd for a husband I think Luke and Lea Skywalker might be in our twins future. Great choices though. If we had girls we might have to do madam curie and jane goodall, what a clever idea!

  2. I am having a hard time finding costumes I like. I should try to make some, but not sure I will have time before Halloween.

    Love this list!

    Great ideas.


  3. Hi there, thanks for following my blog! My little guys are seventeen months old so I am sure we would have stories to share.

    My husband came up with the idea of a sheriff and a jailbird/bank robber. I think I may do that because I am not crafty but I could pull that off =-)

    • That’s a great one! It’s funny, but like Jekyl and Hyde, I think I could easily decide which of my kids would fit which costume. I can’t wait to see some post-Halloween pictures. Thanks for sharing!

      #52. Sheriff and Jailbird :)

  4. You have such a beautiful blog AND beautiful boys! My vote is for Fred and Barney!

  5. Great ideas! I cant wait to dress my little one up at Halloween

    • Thank you for sharing this on Saturday Show & Tell on Cheerios and Lattes last week! You are featured favorite this week! Can’t wait to see what you have for us this week! Have a great weekend!
      Mackenzie :)

  13. My twin boys went as a devil and an angel the year they were 2…the best part was that we had to dress up a few times that year, so they each got a chance as the devil (depending on who was being a tad more difficult that day!!) :>) A bit sad that I never thought of superman and Clark Kent…awesome!

  14. Here are some ideas I have been tossing around for my boy/girl twins:

    Raggedy Ann and Andy (we’ve already done this one)
    Little Red Riding Hood and Wolf (this year)
    Sandy and Danny from Grease (poodle skirt/greaser)
    Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein

    Just a few more ideas to your already great list!

  15. This is such a cool list! I have such a hard time thinking up costume ideas. My 3-year-old decided he and his baby brother had to be superheroes :). He is going to be Captain America and his brother is going to be Clark Kent/Superman (yes, I know… mixing Marvel and DC may be offensive to some :).

    I found you in the Cheerios and Lattes features. Love your ideas!

  16. Oh my goodness! You have the cutest little guys :) I love your pumpkin patch post too.. Adorable!

  17. Oh my goodness, I can’t believe you actually drew glasses on his face! So cute! Thanks for sending me this link; I love it. And your little guys sure are cuties! =)

    Angie from http://www.marigoldmom.com

    • Yes, eye-liner pencil stayed on much better than the real glasses. (Now, he loves wearing any kind of glasses, but last year…no way.) Thanks again for visiting!

  18. Jaime Reyes says:

    CUTE!!! might I suggest Nana and Popo, the ice climbers from super smash bros.?

  19. Jamie Doutt says:

    I have identical twin girls, for their second halloween, I dressed them at an angel and a devil. They were both too cute, and we got tons of compliments.

  20. LOVE this list. Thanks for the twin ideas!

  21. We’ve done policeman and robber, fireman and firetruck, doctor and surgeon, knight and dragon, too :)

  22. Last year our twin boys were Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum made at home and everyone loved their costumes…just another idea!
