The options are endless for twin costume ideas to make, rent or buy. Choose from dressing up alike as crayons to contrasting costumes as an angel and devil. Many character costumes come in twos. Dressing up like Raggedy Ann and Andy is simple with orange yarn for hair and most other things available around the house. Let the twins be involved with the decision and help with making the costumes for creative fun.

Similar Costumes

Similar costumes can be exactly the same or similar in style but different in colour or accents. A popular choice today for children's costumes is the crayon. For twins each one could be a different-coloured crayon. For older twins, famous characters such as the Blues Brothers are easy to assemble costumes for with a dark suit, hat and sunglasses. With the use of boxes, any twins can be a pair of dice, dominoes or Legos.

Contrasting Costumes

Twins can dress in contrasting costumes that make them look like a set. For children, contrasting costumes can be an angel and devil, a wolf and lamb, or a policeman and crook. For older twins, contrasting costumes can be a doctor and patient. If the twins are a boy and a girl, they could be a football player and cheerleader. Another idea for older twins is to just borrow uniforms from their relatives or friends. All of these contrasting costume ideas are easy to make with things around the house. Contrasting costumes complement each other while giving the twins a together look.

Character Costumes

Another option for twin costumes is to dress like famous characters. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Superman and Wonder Woman, Cinderella and Prince Charming, and Raggedy Ann and Andy are ideas for boy and girl twins. Characters for older twins include television icons Lucy and Ricky, Romeo and Juliet, or Marge and Homer. Character costumes can require a lot of extras that may not be immediately available around the house such as wigs, cloaks and long, flowing gowns.

Toy Costumes

Twins of any age can enjoy these types of costumes that are as simple as putting two pieces of cardboard together to create a playing card that is coloured with markers or paint to make a jack-of-hearts and ace-of-spades. Using a collection of balloons under a see-through fabric creates a gumball machine and again two pieces of cardboard creates a coin. An easy twin costume idea is to use a suit with badges and stripes made out of paper to create a toy soldier.
