Every year, Neil Patrick Harris does not disappoint when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. He and his family—clad in an array of costumes as diverse as his Broadway performances—steal the creativity spotlight every October.
From superheroes to Alice in Wonderland, Neil Patrick Harris, his husband David Burtka, and their two kids Harper and Gideon, undoubtedly win the honorary “best costume in the world” award year after year.
Here is a look at some of their most iconic Halloween costumes:
