New Parents Dress Up Their Triplets in Adorably Hilarious DIY Halloween Costumes

Baby’s first Halloween is an undeniably exciting (and inevitably adorable) milestone for new parents. From picking out the perfect costume (you can’t go wrong with a cute cat or a plump pumpkin) to dressing up your little one for the big night, it’s a total treat—and, if you have triplets like Jeremy and Ali Hynek, it’s triply sweet.

Unable to pick just one set of costumes for 6-month-old Penelope, Ethan, and Alejandra, the first-time parents decided instead to showcase a creative compilation of getups. Affectionately called “PEA”—an acronym that combines the first letter of each baby’s name—the adorable bunch has been modeling homemade ensembles on Ali’s Instagram page.

The collection of costumes ranges from pop culture staples—a sweet homage to the late David Bowie, Gene Wilder, and Prince has proven to be a particularly popular post—and presidential candidates—yes, even the hair—to colorful flowers and sweet peas-in-pods. Ali creates the looks with help from Brittany Jepsen, owner of DIY craft website The House that Lars Built and a likeminded creative who, according to Ali, “basically made all my baby costume dreams come true.”

Incorporating everything from repurposed pajamas to hilarious wigs, the fun and festive creations are both doable and adorable.
