This family takes Halloween to the next level.
According to SWNS, for the past six years, the Saint Laurent family of Indianapolis has been dressing up in elaborate, handmade costumes.
Their costumes include the Addams Family, characters from the movie “Beetlejuice”, characters from the 1993 film “Coneheads”, the Jetsons family, characters from the musical “Little Shop of Horrors” and the Simpsons family.

Adrienne, 39, and her husband Andy, 40, were high school sweethearts and today, they have two children, Adeline, 14, and Tate, 11, SWNS reported.
“We’ve loved Halloween since we were teenagers, but we never planned on making it such a big deal in our family,” Adrienne told SWNS.
The History of Halloween: The Origins of the Holiday
Their costume tradition began in 2015, when Adrienne was doing laundry, she explained to SWNS.
“When Tate was four years old, I was doing laundry and I realized that one of his shirts looked like a Pugsley shirt from ‘The Addams Family,'” Adrienne said. “I thought it would be fun to all dress up like the ‘Adams Family’ characters for the coming Halloween and things went from there.”
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 on the street saying how much they loved our costumes.”
“When I told people that I made them from scratch they were even more impressed, so we decided to do something different again next year,” Adrienne said.
According to SWNS, the Saint Laurent family won awards for their costumes at a local festival in 2016, 2018 and 2019.

However, Adrienne said that this may be the last year that the family dresses up in their elaborate costumes – but they won’t let people down.
“We’ve had some wonderful family memories for the past six years, but kids are getting to the 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 feel like they’re coming to a natural end.”
“We plan to go big this year with what could be our epic finale, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve come up with,” Adrienne said.
