They’re fun. They’re outgoing. And let’s be honest, they’re about as theatrical as it gets, so of course celebrities dress their kids in the best, most creative Halloween costumes each year. 

From family costumes you’re going to want to copy to the cutest little hot dog you’ve ever laid eyes on, here are 18 of the best celebrity kid Halloween costumes. Trick or treat indeed. 

1. Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Silas Timberlake

They got candy? LEGO!

A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on

When it comes to Halloween, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel always go all out with their son, Silas. But our favorite to date was the family Lego costumes they donned in 2018. 

2. Kylie Jenner and Stormi Webster

Leave it to Kylie Jenner to nail a twinning Halloween costume with her daughter, Stormi Webster. Both beauties looked gorgeous, dressed up as pink butterflies. But if we had to choose “who wore it better,” sorry, Kylie, we’re Team Stormi. 

3. Mario Lopez and Gia Francesca Lopez

While "Extra" host Mario Lopez had his Elvis look down in 2015, his daughter Gia Francesca really gave off big-time Marilyn Monroe vibes. 

4. Pink’s family

Screw it I love Halloween so much

A post shared by P!NK (@pink) on

In 2018, singer Pink, her husband Carey Hart, and their two kids, Willow Sage and Jameson Moon, paid homage to what’s clearly their favorite movie, “The Greatest Showman.” 

“Screw it,” the singer wrote. “I love Halloween so much.”

5. Jessica Simpson's family

Sometimes you’ve just gotta bite the bullet and let kids dress up how they want — particularly when they get older. Sure, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson could have worn a cohesive family costume in 2017, but the singer let her kids do their thing and wear Belle and cowboy costumes. We’re into it. 

6. Blue Ivy

Beyoncé and Jay Z always nail the family costumes, but we can’t lie: Blue Ivy as Imani Izzi from “Coming to America” will forever be our favorite. 

7. Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple

Let's do this.... 🎃

A post shared by Gwyneth Paltrow (@gwynethpaltrow) on

Gwyneth Paltrow rarely (read: never) shares photos of her kids’ faces online, so she definitely gets creativity points for taking a selfie with daughter Apple in matching skeleton makeup a few years ago. If Apple weren’t with her mom here, we’d have no clue who she was!

8. Luna Legend

have you ever seen a more "why me?" face 😭

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

What’s cuter than Luna Legend, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s daughter? Luna Legend dressed up like a baby hot dog. 

9. Neil Patrick Harris’s family

If you can believe it, this isn’t a still from a horror movie — it’s just Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka’s 2018 Halloween costumes with twins Harper and Gideon. Color us bloody impressed. 

10. Jimmy Fallon’s daughter

Happy Halloween!!

A post shared by Jimmy Fallon (@jimmyfallon) on

Who would think to dress their barely 1-year-old daughter up as Farrah Fawcett, complete with feathered hair? Jimmy Fallon, that’s who! Little Frances Cole looks just like the former Charlie’s Angel … right?

10. Khloe Kardashian and True Thompson 

Need we even say it? The Kardashian-Jenners always bring it during Halloween, so of course True Thompson’s first Halloween costume was as adorable as it gets. Look at this little unicorn!

11. Hoda Kotb and daughter Haley

Buzzzzzzzz

A post shared by Hoda Kotb (@hodakotb) on

Perhaps better than the sheer adorableness that is Haley Joy Kotb in a bee costume is the look of sheer joy on her mom’s face. Love!

12. Alec and Hilaria Baldwin and family

That’s a lot of astronauts! The Baldwin family all donned orange space suits for Halloween in 2018. Ready to blast off!

13. Alexis Olympia Ohanian

It’s safe to say that Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian had the cutest baby Batman of 2017. Look at little Alexis Olympia’s expression!  

14. Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick and family

I know it's now November, but...

A post shared by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on

They may not be together anymore, but Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick still know how to put together a seriously impressive family costume. 

15. Nick and Vanessa Lachey and family

Happy "Frozen" Halloween! Love, The Lacheys ❄️

A post shared by Vanessa Lachey (@vanessalachey) on

It’s Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf! Er, actually it’s just the Lacheys, but we’ve gotta be honest here: Nick makes a seriously convincing Kristoff. 

16. Jessica Alba’s family

#happyhalloween #ShimmerandShine & #PirateLife

A post shared by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on

You have to appreciate the fact that Jessica Alba did a joint costume with her daughter Haven Warren — not too many moms want to dress up like Shine from “Shimmer and Shine”! And dad Cash Warren went as a matching pirate with their oldest daughter Honor Warren. Everybody wins!

17. Mariska Hargitay’s family 

Mariska Hargitay and family hit every emotion under the sun with their “Inside Out”-inspired Halloween costumes. This makes us happy. 

18. Viola Davis’s daughter

In 2015, Viola Davis’s daughter, Genesis Tennon, won Halloween (forever perhaps?) by dressing up as her mom. Now that is a costume for the ages.
