• Halloween Family Costumes: Alice in Wonderland

    alice-in-wonderland-family-costume

    Something fun this year! As an extension of our couples costumes Halloween series, this year we’re also sharing some ideas for family of three costumes. There is nothing cuter than dressing up a baby for Halloween, especially when it’s an excuse to dress up yourselves!

    First up are the classic characters from Alice in Wonderland: Alice, the White Rabbit and a fun sized Queen of Hearts (with a much more pleasant disposition and hopefully less tantrums). All of the ideas this week can easily be transitioned into a larger family group as well. For this Alice in Wonderland theme you could add on a Mad Hatter, Cheshire cat, and a couple kids dressed as oversized face cards. This doesn’t have to be for a family either, a group of friends could pull this off too!

    Big thanks to our family models this year, Matt, Heather and baby May Mildenstein! They were such troopers (especially little May). Photography by Ashley Thalman. Styling by  Sarah Larsen and her assistant Stephanie Larsen. Produced by site manager Ashley Aikele with creative direction by myself, Liz Stanley.

      I was Alice for Halloween last year. Loved that costume, made me feel so cute. Having the whole family dressed up in this theme is even better though. 🙂

      This is adorable! I wish I had a family so I could do this costume.

      Maybe I’ll have to convince some of my friends to do it, or will have to save it for the future 😉
