Group Costume Idea: Encanto Madrigal Family

Encanto was one of the most popular movies released in 2021. The animated feature from Disney featured a family full of characters with magical abilities, and a heroine who helped keep the family together (her true power). The family includes several memorable characters that would make fun Halloween costumes, and dressing up as several from the group is a fun idea for a dressing up as a family or bunch of friends. Here are some costume ideas inspired by characters from Encanto.

Mirabel Madrigal Costume

Dress up as the protagonist of Encanto, sister Mirabel Madrigal. The character wears a childlike outfit including an elaborately decorated blouse with flowing collar, and equally elaborately decorated skirt in shades of blue.

Mirabel's sister Luisa is expected to use her extraordinary strength to serve the family and the community, but the movie shows the toll these responsibilities take on Luisa.

B Bruno Madrigal Costume Poncho

Found on Amazon

This one is easy! Bruno's main costume piece is the green striped poncho he wears, including a hood just like this one. Because this is the main part of his costume, you can wear this over almost anything, but brown pants and a brown top would be best. It also works over jeans, shorts, or almost anything else! The poncho is king for a Bruno costume.
