As a dad, you are already your child's favorite superhero. Dressing up like superheroes will be sure to make some awesome memories with your son or daughter. To make it extra special you could let your child dress up like a superhero and you dress up like the supervillain from the same movie. Just be sure to act defeated by the end of the night.
Nintendo Character Costumes
Dressing up as a character from a Nintendo game will be a lot of fun for you and your kids. Since there are so many characters to choose from everyone can be their favorite. All the characters from the Super Mario games are certainly fun options. Other ideas from Nintendo would be Link from the Legends of Zelda or Donkey Kong.
Children love SpongeBob and his silly friend Patrick Star. If you and your children decided to dress up like characters from SpongeBob just make sure you go out to eat for hamburgers and call them Krabby Patties.
Since there have been three Toy Story movies there are now plenty of toys to consider dressing up as. These movies were so cute and were loved by both children and adults. Everyone in your family could pick out their favorite character to dress up as. If you have small children they would love to see you dressed up as Woody or Buzz Lightyear!
Curious George Costume
Curious George is a popular TV show and book series for little kids. There are only two main characters in Curious George, one being George and the other being the Man with the Yellow Hat. If your child loves Curious George it would be incredibly adorable for your child to dress up as George and for you to dress up as the Man with the Yellow Hat.
Wizard of Oz Costumes

There are many characters for you to consider to dressing up as: Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, the Wizard, or even a flying monkey.
