According to Stitch, "Ohana means family, family means no one gets left behind." That phrase applies to matching Halloween costumes too. While you can dress up as different characters from "Lelo & Stitch," these COSUSKET Onesie Pajamas ($30) are so comfy, why not both go as the same character?

Plus, your little one will love running around as your mini Stitch while picking up his favorite candy throughout the night.
