Halloween Ideas for Twins (and multiples)

I know it is early but for the last two days Halloween costumes has been my mind. I would like Gwenith and Gilbert costume accordant togehter. I think it is so cute when twins (or anyone else) dress in Halloween theme costumes together.

Their first Halloween Gwenith and Gilbert were chickens. Last Halloween they were Winnie the Pooh (Gwenith) and Tigger (Gilbert). I figure I probably have this year and next to decide what they will dress up as before they start to tell me what they want to be. I really want to do Raggedy Ann and Andy, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm or Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker but I don't like what the toddlers costumes look like. So I don't know what I am going to do.

Since I have been thinking about costumes ideas I decided to make a list of some cute ideas for Halloween costumes for twins (and multiples). I know I most likely left some ideas off this list so if you want to leave a comment to let me know I would appreciate it.

'll have to tell my sister about you list. She has a boy/girl set of twins and those are great ideas. Thanks for checking out my wordless sunset! Hope you have a great week. (Sorry about the deleted post I can't type tonight).

I don't actually have 'twins' but what most people are telling me as 'irish twins'. My two are 11 months and three days apeart. G/B. I agree with you in wanting to dress them alike until they tell you otherwise. I wanted to do Ragedy Anne and Andy but that seems like a popular character this year and ! am looking for something unique!! I love your list!!! It has given me unique ideas as well as some cute ones!! Thank you.

Love these ideas- thanks for posting I am a mom of twins and they will be 18 months at halloween and I am trying to think of something cute!! I am also going to start following your blog! I love it!

You don't know me, but when i googled costumes for twins your blog popped up. I have twin boy & girl and love your ideas! Thanks!

Like above, my wife and I stumbled across your blog from our good friend, Google.

We have 18 months old identical girls. They look a lot alike, so we believe they are authentic twins.

Thanks for the list, replete with a lot of ideas. My wife is a math teacher and thought that Sine and Cosine would work, but we've yet to see any costumes for this pairing, so I may win out on this one (since I'm an English teacher):

Noun and Verb.

I think it's a perfect idea b/c one is always saying 'thing' and the other one is always 'running around'.

Hope you are holding up with your husband's current deployment.
