Want to have an excuse to dress up for Halloween and go trick-or-treating with your kids? Don’t be the dad who rolls up to the door dressed as the Grim Reaper. Instead, come up with cute father & son Halloween costumes combo that will impress your neighbors.
After all, the best way to collect candy without risking your rep as a cool dad in the neighborhood is to team up with your kid in a father-son costume. Here are a few ideas that will make you the coolest pair in town.
Carl and Russell from Up
Wear brown pants, a white dress shirt, tweed jacket and a bow tie. If you don’t already have gray hair, grab a can of colored hair spray and go to town. Throw on a pair of black eyeglasses. Your little one can wear a homemade scout uniform: brown shorts, a tan short-sleeved shirt with hiking boots. Add a brown sash that you can make out of felt or an old tee shirt, and use stickers as badges. Tie a bunch of colorful helium balloons to his wrist and you’re ready to go!
Dr. Evil and Mini-Me
Wear a gray suit, and you can fake a Nero collar by popping the suit collar. If you aren’t bald, the costume won’t be complete without a flesh-tone skullcap. Use makeup to create a scar below your eye. Your Mini-Me just wears a gray suit too.
