Classic Halloween Costumes: Over 50 Ideas

Addams Family Halloween Costumes

It's that time of year again where I share my favorite classic Halloween costume ideas! I absolutely love simple, classic Halloween costumes, and have been sharing this list here for years, but each time I have new additions and updates. This is our biggest list so far!

When my kids were little, they were all about dressing up at black cats and pumpkins and witches. These days they usually opt for trendy characters instead. This year though, my daughter chose to be a devil and my son is dressing as a baseball player and Jack Skellington - all of which make my classic costumes loving heart happy!

The past two years we also did family costumes (Addams Family, as seen above, and The Wizard of Oz the year before). This year we decided to take a break from the stress involved with all of that and each do our own thing, but I'll always be a sucker for a family costume too.

Scroll down for our most recent list of 50 timeless costume ideas.
