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.

    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!

      #51. Luke and Lea. Perfect!

    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.

    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 =-)

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08977698285925482731 Holli

      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 :)

    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!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/14078911641142270846 Twinkie Momma

    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!

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08977698285925482731 Holli

      Love these ideas!

    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!

      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!

  • Jaime Reyes

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

  • Jamie Doutt

    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.

  • http://frivolousnecessity.blogspot.com Crystal Stanworth

    LOVE this list. Thanks for the twin ideas!

  • Lara

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