Fam costumes2

I will admit, Halloween is not my favorite holiday. Ghouls, ghosts and goblins…all that stuff just freaks me out. On the other hand, I absolutely love seeing cute costumes on babies and pets, and I adore when families dress up together.

With that in mind we’re hosting our first ever Chic Family HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST (cue: marching band music)!!!

I’ve collected some of my favorite family costumes to inspire your submissions and show you what we’re looking for! Some are cute, some are crazy, and some might serve as inspiration for you as you figure out what you want to be this year… there are even a couple of the Chic staffers amongst the collection.  Enjoy! (Be sure to scroll through to the end to see how you could win a prize for your own family’s costumes!) ~Jenny

Rachel, Dave and baby Ford went as a batman trio!
