With Bay Ridge's Ragamuffin Parade tomorrow and Halloween and Worldtots' Carnival less than 3 weeks away, some of you may be struggling with last minute ideas for costuming your little ones! Why not think big and costume your whole family with a fun theme!? Ask your children for their ideas, perhaps the characters from their favorite TV show, movie, or book. If you need some ideas, read on for 49 of our favorite family costume ideas!

Once you have an idea in mind, you can DIY or buy costumes in pieces or as a set. Locally you can find costumes for kids at Raine & Riley's (9002 3rd Ave), and for adults and kids at TJMaxx (502 86th Street). Online, you'll find lots of options on Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
