7 Times Neil Patrick Harris Cosplayed With His Family During Halloween

main image

Neil Patrick Harris has the kind of family you can’t help but be obsessed with. Harris is known for posting adorable pictures of his family on Instagram. Their commitment to Halloween is almost too much to handle.

The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star and his partner David Burtka have twins together, a boy Gideon and a girl Harper. The happy couple confirmed their relationship at the Emmys back in 2007 and announced they were expecting twins via a surrogate mother three years later.

The picture-perfect family has been killing the Halloween game ever since. Which one’s your favorite?

Harris as Captain Hook, Burtka as the happiest Peter Pan of all time and the twins as Tinker Bell and Smee was just a taste of more amazing Halloween costumes to come.

The family keeps the bar set high. They dressed up as the characters from the Wizard of Oz. Little Gideon doesn’t seem very impressed with his Cowardly Lion costume.

The Munsters?! I mean, could this costume be any more perfect? Harris makes an eerily spot-on Frankenstein and Harper is killing it as Lily Munster. 

Harris and his family took a trip down the rabbit hole when they dressed up for the twins’ Halloween carnival at their preschool. Harris gives Burtka all the credit for coming up with this display of adorable. 

The twins were clearly embracing their characters posing as the heroes and villains of Gotham City with a little help from their parents. 

Happy Halloween from Gotham City!!

The force is definitely with them! Harris and family KILLED their 2015 Star Wars costumes. Gideon looks like a natural with that lightsaber. 

A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away….

Another Halloween, another amazing costume. They celebrated last year by dressing up as Hollywood greats Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Charlie Chaplin and Groucho Marx. “Legendary!”

What will the happy couple bless our timelines with this year? You’ll have to wait until Halloween to find out but in the meantime here’s a picture of the family looking all kinds of adorable on a trip to Disney.
