Halloween Costume Ideas for Three Sisters or Three Brothers

by Carissa Lawrence

Group costumes can make the Halloween holiday even more fun to celebrate. Kids with multiple siblings can take advantage of the strength they have in numbers. With homemade costumes becoming more and more popular, matching costume possibilities for three brothers or three sisters are nearly endless. Take a look at some of these creative Halloween ideas for siblings of three.

Costumes for Three Brothers

Three brothers might enjoy dressing as Alvin and the Chipmunks. These costumes can be made using adult-sized turtlenecks in red, blue and green. Include the appropriate accessories like Alvin's red hat and Simon's glasses. Brothers can also dress up as Smurfs in costumes of white pants, blue shirts and white hats. Have each brother choose their favorite Smurf or create a new Smurf persona and dress accordingly.

Costumes for Three Sisters

Three sisters can dress up as three different Disney princesses like Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Cinderella or Snow White. Three sisters can also dress as The Powerpuff Girls in costumes made of pink, green and blue dresses with homemade black-eye masks. Younger sisters might enjoy dressing as Strawberry Shortcake and her friends, with one sister dressing as Strawberry Shortcake and the other two dressing as Blueberry Muffin and Plum Pudding.

Gender-Neutral Costumes

A number of cartoon and video-game characters lend themselves to gender-neutral Halloween costumes for kids. Three brothers or three sisters can dress up as dalmatians from the Disney movie "101 Dalmatians," Angry Birds characters, or Gru's minions from the movie "Despicable Me." Boy or girl siblings can also dress up as individual crayons or generic superheroes with masks and capes. Other gender-neutral Halloween costumes for three brothers or three sisters include the Three Blind Mice or Three Little Kittens featured in classic nursery rhymes. These costumes can be achieved using gray clothes, tails and ears.

General Group Costumes

Siblings in groups of three can dress up as a variety of food items for Halloween. Three brothers or three sisters can each choose their favorite food item from a category such as fruits, vegetables or desserts. They can also all be the same type of food for Halloween. For example, sisters can dress as three peas in a pod. Three brothers might get a kick out of being breakfast for Halloween, dressing up as bacon, eggs and toast, for example. Three brothers or three sisters can also dress as a range of items and objects that relate to each other. For example, three sisters can dress as different flowers in a bouquet, while three brothers can dress as the Earth, Sun and Moon.
