Target Just Launched a New Collection of Family Halloween Costumes and It’s the Time-Saver We All Needed

You in July: This is the year that I will finally DIY my family’s Halloween costumes. You in October: Crap, I’m out of time. What the heck can I buy online that works for the whole family and is creative and inventive and spooky, too?

Target somehow managed to solve both problems with the early release of this year’s Halloween costume collection for families.

Some of our favorite options? Of course, we love the classics like the pirates and the pandas. But Target really upped the ante this year with costumes that could genuinely cause other Trick or Treaters to do a double take and wonder: Wow, is that actually homemade?


Case in point: The Family Venus Fly Trap Collection. (Hello, you’ll be the best-dressed parent on the block.)


But there’s also the Family Robot Costume Collection. So good! The prices are also reasonable—costume costs range from $8 to $40, depending on which family member you’re shopping for. (Search the entire collection here.)

So, now the BIG question: What will you be for Halloween this year? Sure, you could leave the decision up to your kids...or you could just place an order and surprise them. (Something tells us they’ll be on board.)
