Did you know that one of my "bigger" pet peeves are BASIC halloween costumes?... raise your hand in the comments if you agree. I am currently pregnant, and the only costumes that pop up on Pinterest are Poo Bear and Gum Ball Machines, both of which are cute but it has been done so much that I could never do that now! Same goes for college girl costumes, couple costumes, and family costumes. 

Well let me save you families some time by giving you a solid count of 2020's Best "None Basic" Costumes To Wear - Family Edition.

Jurassic Park Family

Currently one of my personal favorites is this Jurassic Park Family Costume idea! 

You get to wear comfortable shoes, kids can remain nice and cozy in their dinosaur costumes, and best of all, it includes a wagon! Which I'm sure every family can attest to being a life saver while Trick or Treating.

And to make it extra easy for you! Here are the items you will need for this costume, pretty much all on Amazon Prime:
