October 28: Family 'Up' costume

JrFlaitz/TODAY Parenting Team

One of the most impressive family Halloween costumes we've seen is this 'Up' costume — themed around the Disney movie — created by TODAY Parenting Team Contributor JrFlaitz.

The creative mom shared the costume in a post on the TODAY Parenting Team, saying even her husband and her kids' grandparents got involved in putting the costumes together.

"The Kevin costume was the most time-consuming with the head made out of pool noodles, masking tape, felt and chicken wire," she wrote.

"Biggest regret was the house was actually made of wood (my husband insisted on authenticity) but it, of course, was a heavy undertaking for my 9-year-old daughter," she continued. "Cardboard would have been sufficient but like a true champ, she never complained."

Sometimes it takes a village to get a family looking this great!
