Well we’ve always dubbed Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka and their twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott the best celebrity family each Halloween because they’ve consistently outdone themselves each year.
This year was no different. Each member of the family dressed as a different Old Hollywood figure. Harris was Groucho Marx; Burtka was Charlie Chaplin; Harper was Marilyn Monroe; and Gideon, was James Dean. Costumes like these for an entire family take a lot of planning to pull off.
But it looks like we have been overlooking a blog fave Bumpwatch alum and her family: Beyonce!
The mega star, her husband rapper Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy have rocked some pretty amazing family costumes. And…they usually do more than one each year as well.
This year, she and Jay dressed as Black Barbie and Ken dolls, complete in the packaging and everything. They nailed it!
Mama Knowles, Tina, got in on the act and was a member of Salt-N-Pepa along with Blue Ivy. Amazing!
Last year around Halloween time, Beyonce wore two costumes as well dressing up as Storm for Ciara‘s surprise birthday party that her then-fiance Russell Wilson threw for her.
For Halloween later in the month, the Knowles- Carter clan dressed as characters from the Eddie Murphy cult film, Coming to America.
Beyonce and Jay-Z were Queen and King of the fictional African nation of Zamuda while Blue played Murphy’s love interest in the film, Lisa McDowell.
Mrs. Carter even changed up her outfit to a traditional African print Ankara dress while attending a party with Jay that night.
In 2014, artists was the theme and Bey went as Mexican painter Frida Kahlo while Jay-Z personified the haunted Jean-Michel Basquiat and Blue wore a jacket made of one of Basquiat’s works.
Earlier in the day that year, Queen Bey was dressed as the Queen of R&B 90s pop Janet Jackson from the Rhythm Nation video and Blue was her sister Michael Jackson.
What a great Halloween Family!
