Family Halloween Costumes 2017

A couple of months before Halloween our kids start talking about what they’d like to be, and the excitement ramps up once they agree on a theme for our family and assign everyone a character.

This year, they chose Moana.


And while dressing up truly is not one of my favoriteĀ things, because they love it so much, we play along and agree to be whatever they dream up.



Now, I am NOT a seamstress or even very creative when it comes to costumes, but luckily, my mom is and she lovingly took on the task of making our costumes and she went ALL out for our family. Didn’t she do a fabulous job?! We are so grateful and the kids just about lost their minds when they saw them.


Moana and Te Ka

(What you can’t see in the photos are the lights in Cal’s head flames and on his gloves, and he lit up at night; so fun!)

And what is also amazing is that the kids’ Grammie and Poppie got in on the action this year, too! They pieced together their own outfits and with a little help from a friend, they nailed their parts. Check out that back tattoo!

Maui and the crazy grannie, Tala.

Okay, I had fun with it….



Somehow they even convinced me (so much begging) to dress the part for their class parties as well. WAY out of my comfort zone. But I just can’t say no to such a sweet request.


We hope you all had a very safe and fun Halloween! Until next year… :)

  4. Kate | The Organized Dream says:

    I love it when families and couples match their costumes! That little hei hei is so adorable!

    • I do, too! I think it’s so fun! I was never into dressing up in previous years, but I will pretty much wear anything they ask me to!

  5. Omg, I love that the grandparents dressed up too. The costumes turned out great – such fun!


  6. In my mind I could just hear Moana’s “How Far I’ll Go” song as I read your post…what a great movie and great songs & characters as well. I can understand why your children chose Disney’s Moana as the theme. Looks like you all had lots of fun and created some really cool memories in the process.
