Cowboys, pirates, and princesses… dressing up your kids is always a lot of fun.
But recreating a character from their favourite film – that's a whole new level of fancy dress awesomeness.
So we just loved these costume ideas from Imgur.
Our favourite is this little boy (left), dressed as Carl from Pixar's Up. Carl's probably the best old-man character of all time. So what happens when you put a little boy in his cardigan, bow tie and walking frame..? Well, we're sorry to get hysterical, but we just can't handle the cuteness.
As for Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings, well that is simply inspired. That curly-haired boy (below, left) was just born to wear those short trousers. Look at his little feet! He could not get anymore hobbit-like.
In the gallery below, other film-buff parents have recreated their kids as Loki from Thor, Boba Fett from Star Wars, Tintin from The Adventures of Tintin and, of course, everyone's favourite wizard, Harry Potter.
There's also a rather scary little Predator costume. Erm, not sure that one quite fits the family-film-favourites theme...
