50 Classic Halloween Costume Ideas

Family Halloween Costumes Wizard of Oz
It’s time for my annual Classic Halloween Costume Ideas post! I’ve been sharing this post in one way or another for years now, but each time with updates and additions. This is the most comprehensive list yet.
I let my kiddos choose their own costumes, and to my classic costume loving heart’s dismay, the days of them dressing like pumpkins or black cats or witches are definitely over. These days they want store bought character costumes, the end. This year, my daughter is going to be Mal from Descendants and my son a Minion for their school Halloween parties and other Halloween activities that aren’t actually on Halloween. 
But on Halloween day, we’re doing a family costume for the second year in a row (this is new for us as my husband is almost always on the road with the band on Halloween), and it’s definitely more on the classic costume end of the spectrum, which brings me all sorts of irrational joy. Last year our family was the Wizard of Oz, as seen above. While this is still a character costume theme, it’s still a classic. 
Scroll down for my updated list of 50 (!!) timeless costume ideas.

Halloween English Muffin Pizzas

Halloween English Muffin Pizzas
When I was a kid, I thought english muffin pizzas were the bee’s knees. Then I decided to try to make them as an adult several years ago, but with a Halloween twist. Success! I’ve shared these with you guys a few times over the years, but every year I seem to come up with some small improvements and want to share them again. My kids absolutely love decorating and eating this, and they’re ready in minutes. 
HHalloween English Muffin Pizzas

Serves 6
INGREDIENTS 

6 english muffins, halved

2 cups shredded cheddar 
2 cups shredded mozzarella

1 slice provolone  

1 cup pizza sauce  

black olives

green olives

green pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Placed halved english muffins cut side up on a baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce on each. Top five of the english muffins with cheese shreds. On the remaining muffin, top with strips of the cheese slice, to look like a mummy. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Create jack-o-lanterns, spiders, mummies, and monsters with the olives and peppers!
