The Busby Family Went All Out For Halloween 2019

If you've been keeping up with the Busbys since they hit airwaves in 2016, you know that Halloween is a fun time for the family. The OutDaughtered clan clearly loves the fall holiday, and thanks to their family of eight(!), are able to pull off some pretty epic themed costume ideas. Wouldn't you take advantage of having six adorable kids to dress up?


While we frequently see the five youngest members of the family dressed alike, Halloween presents a unique opportunity for them to be dressed alike but different. In years past Adam and Danielle have dressed older sister Blayke Louise and quintuplets Riley Paige, Parker Kate, Hazel Grace, Ava Lane, and Olivia Marie up in some elaborate get-ups, and Mom and Dad typically get in on the action themselves to complete the family look.

Each year the Busby brood's costumes seem to get better and better. And this year? TLC's favorite family did not disappoint. In fact, 2019 may be their best Halloween yet. 

How the Busbys celebrated Halloween in years past

Although 2015 was actually the quints' first official Halloween, the infants weren't able to get in on the trick or treating. Blayke got to dress up, though, and choose a sweet sparkle witch costume for the occasion. Since then, the Busbys have definitely made up for lost time.


For their 2016 costumes, Adam revealed on the show that oldest daughter Blayke set the theme in motion when she decided she wanted to be a zookeeper. The result was a super-cute menagerie of Busby kids dressed as various animals, all being watched over by Blayke the zookeeper. The quints played the roles of a pig, an elephant, a lion, a frog, and a monkey.  For his part, Adam was a zookeeper who seemed to be (inexplicably) riding a gorilla's shoulders, and banana Danielle, presumably, belonged to the gorilla giving her husband a ride. It gets better from here, don't worry.

In 2017, the Busbys celebrated with an "out of this world" theme. Adam and the kids dressed as NASA astronauts — a nod to the #HoustonStrong movement in the wake of Hurricane Harvey — while Danielle donned a rather unsettling alien costume. 


Halloween 2018 was all about The Greatest Showman, and the Busbys really knocked it out of the park this time. The kids each wore a different circus-themed costume, including Riley as the ring leader, of course. Blayke dressed as trapeze artist Ann Wheeler, Ava adorably dressed as the bearded woman, Olivia was the world's strongest man, Hazel rocked it as the tattooed man, and Parker completed the look as the albino twin.

Didn't we tell you the costumes were getting better and better every Halloween? But if you thought 2018 was good, wait until you see this year's look. 

The superhero Busby family

The Busby family definitely went all out this Halloween, and turned to their fave superheroes for inspiration — even Beau, the family's latest four-legged addition, got in on the action. 

Danielle posted an incredible photo to Instagram and outlined who each family member represented in her caption — and better yet, she explained why they were these particular characters and how that relates to their unique personalities. 


Adam chose to be Captain America, Danielle wrote, because he's the "captain and boss of the house." Danielle is Superwoman, or as she noted, "super mom." Blayke, the big sister of the quints, dressed as Captain Marvel, as she rules over all of her super sisters. 

As for the quints, Ava starts off on the right as Spider-Girl because she crawls around and climbs on everything. Olivia is the girly version of Flash, because she's the quint that runs around on the regular. Hazel represents Robin, the trusty sidekick, because as her mom writes, she's an incredible support for her family in every situation — also, she always likes to show off how strong she is by doing handstands.

Riley is Batgirl, simply because she's the crime fighter in the fam — or as Danielle writes, she likes to keep an eye on her siblings and likes to tattle. Parker Kate rounds out the family theme costume as Wonder Woman. Danielle writes that she's a "concerned healer," and always tries to take care of her siblings. Their sweet pup, Beau Buzz, completes the look as Superman, as he watches over all the girls in the house.


Aside from the Marvel-DC mashup, this is an incredible family Halloween costume that sums up each family member's one-of-a-kind charm, and we can't wait to see what they come up with next year.
