We've been doing themed, family costumes since DD's first Halloween. This year, since she was going as a t-rex, we decided to do an all out Jurassic Park group costume. DH is Dr. Grant. He even has a light up "flare" - just like in the famous scene when he uses it to lure the t-rex away from the kids. I'm one of the park SUVs, complete with working headlights and the trembling glass of water. My costume even plays the theme song from the movie. :)

My six-year-old wanted to be R2D2, despite some kids at school teasing her because Star Wars is a "boy" thing. We've taught her all along it doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, you can be whomever you want to be, and be interested in anything you like.
Since there were no R2D2 costumes to be found, I made her one, out of posterboard and recyclables. :)
Our family of four went as a pack of Totoros (from "My Neighbor Totoro" a.k.a. となりのトトロ).
All homesewn, using repurposed sweatshirts/pants
Baby William as Chibi Totoro (ちびトトロ), myself as Big Totoro (大トトロ) and Ella Rose as Medium Totoro (中トトロ)
Hubby, Dash, as Big Totoro (大トトロ)
Ella Rose as Medium Totoro (中トトロ)
These are great!

My 2 year old was Cousin Itt. Everybody said she was perfect because of her squeaky voice and squeaky shoes. The fact that her favorite thing to do is suck her thumb and play with her hair this costume was right up her alley.
