Monsters University Family Themed Halloween CostumesIt was another year of family-themed cos­tumes for Halloween! Ever since seeing Monsters University this past summer, I knew it would be such a great family theme. So, we were already doing some monsters costume planning over the summer. Originally, I had thought about making the Mike & Sulley costumes in DIY style. But, with all of our medical crises the past couple months, that was just too much. So, we bought the Mike & Sulley costumes and that’s ok with me as the boys absolutely LOVED their costumes! Mike & Sulley CostumesAnd, I love these pictures! So cute! We actually did do some DIY tweaks to the costumes. Big Brother’s Sulley costume was just a bit too small, so we added some turquoise fleecey fabric to the bottom of the legs. And, for both boys we made monster hands, feet (shoe covers), and MU trick-or-treat bags! The rest of our costumes were put together with some random items found at Goodwill and then “monsterfied” in DIY fashion (I’ll share a bit more in an upcoming post on how we did the costumes). Then, we got on our best Monsters University top scarer faces and headed out for some Halloween fun.

His little tail waddled when he walked in just the cutest way…and he makes the funniest growling sound right now that was priceless! Baby Monster CostumeIt was such a gorgeous night! This was our first time spending Halloween back in the Midwest and it was great to experience something different. The crisp fall air and all the leaves made it feel like the quintessential Halloween experience. Trick-or-treating

So much fun!

  1. We had a Sully in the family, too. And just as adorable as yours. 🙂 His older brother was a skeleton. Named Bones!
