This family takes Halloween to the next level. 

For the last six years, the St. Laurent family, from Indianapolis, has been dressing up in elaborate, handmade costumes, according to SWNS. 

Their costumes have included the Addams Family, characters from the film “Beetlejuice,” characters from the 1993 film “Coneheads,” the Jetsons family, characters from the musical “Little Shop of Horrors” and the Simpsons family.

“We’ve loved Halloween ever since we were teenagers, but we never planned to make it such a big deal in our family,” Adrienne told SWNS.

HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN: THE ORIGINS OF THE HOLIDAY

Their costume tradition started in 2015, when Adrienne was doing laundry, she explained to SWNS.

“When Tate was four, I was doing laundry and I realized one of his shirts looked like Pugsley’s shirt from ‘The Addams Family,’” Adrienne said. “I thought it would be fun to all dress up like ‘Addams Family’ characters for that upcoming Halloween and things just took off from there.”

In 2016, the family won a prize for their "Beetlejuice" costumes. (SWNS)

According to SWNS, Adrienne makes her family’s costumes from scratch, using materials from thrift shops, papier-mâché, poster board, wire hangers, felt and lots of hot glue.

She explained that the family went to a local festival that year, where people kept “stopping us in the street saying how much they loved our costumes.”

“When I told people I’d made them from scratch they were even more impressed, so we decided to go again next year dressed as something different,” Adrienne added. 

In 2019, the St. Laurents won a third prize for their Halloween costumes when they dressed as characters from the musical "Little Shop of Horrors." (SWNS)

However, Adrienne said this year may be the last year the family dresses up in their elaborate costumes – but they won’t leave people disappointed.

“We’ve got some amazing family memories from the past six years, but the kids are getting to that age where they’re starting to lose faith with it,” she said. “My daughter was in second grade when we started and now she’s a freshman in high school so things do feel like they’re coming to a natural end.”

“We’re planning to go big this year for what could be our epic finale, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve come up with,” Adrienne added.
