Halloween is one of the most cherished holidays of the year for both kids and grownups alike.
The reasons are obvious for little ones; mainly, candy but getting to dress up like your favorite superhero or fictional character always brings them unparalleled happiness – until Christmas rolls around.
It’s the one day out of the year where you can forget about your stuffy work dress code or uniform and the stresses of adulting altogether and can just be a kid again.
Some grownups take Halloween a little more seriously than others, and actor Neil Patrick Harris is definitely at the top of the #HalloweenGoals list.
Along with husband David Burtka, Harris makes sure that Halloween is a family affair. Here are seven times when the Burtka-Harris family has absolutely nailed Halloween with their amazing cosplaying!
2011 – Peter Pan Cosplay
It all started when Neil and David’s twins, Harper and Gideon, were barely old enough to walk. The couple decided on a Peter Pan theme and nailed it. David was Peter, Harper was dressed as Tinkerbell, Gideon was the cutest Mr. Smee in history, and Neil really pulled off Captain Hook.
2012 – The Wizard Of Oz
The following year, the Burtka-Harris family dressed as The Wizard of Oz characters and every detail was perfect right down to Harper’s adorable ruby slippers as Dorothy. Neil was the Tin Man, David dressed as the Scarecrow, and Gideon was the Cowardly Lion – with the expression to match!
2013 – Alice In Wonderland
Now that the twins are getting older, you’d have to think at this point they had some say in the matter. Harper is such an adorable Alice and Gideon nails the White Rabbit. Neil and David dressed as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, but much more handsome versions!
