This is certainly a cute concept, but don't try to pull off this costume unless you're confident that your twins won't be insulted or defined by the personality insinuations inherent in these characterizations. Good twin/bad twin is one of the stereotypes that drives twins (and sometimes, their parents) crazy. So as long as your comfortable that the labels won't linger, angel and devil costumes are an adorable Halloween costume for twins. Click here to compare prices for kids' angel and devil costumes.

Frozen Sisters

The Disney movie Frozen is HOT, HOT, HOT.  Sisters Anna (compare prices) and Elsa (compare prices) are the princesses of the moment and little girls can not get enough of them. As long as your twins can agree on which character to claim, this is an ideal costume concept for twin girls. And if they can't agree ... they can both be their favorite! Costumes for these characters range from princess-y tulle and satin to more traditional dresses with folk art details representing the Norwegian heritage of the story's settings. Have a boy twin that loves Frozen, too? Male characters that can be represented with Halloween costumes include Olaf the Snowman, Sven the reindeer or Kristoff the iceman.

The fictional characters from Alice in Wonderland are a classic example of a stereotype about twins who look and act identically. Although sometimes a less-than-favorable portrayal of twins, the Disney version of these characters are too-two cute to dismiss. These handmade dresses are absolutely adorable, sweet enough to wear as dresses all year long and not just for Halloween. The dresses are available for toddlers and girls up to size 8.
