Family ties

Neil Patrick Harris’ adorable family wins Halloween again

While Colton Haynes is the undisputed champion in the “making characters from your childhood creepy in an oddly sexual way” Halloween costume award, Neil Patrick Harris‘ family takes the prize in the PG-rated-wholesome-fun category.

Together with husband David Burtka and kids Harper and Gideon, Neil and the Burtka-Harris fam stepped out dressed as your classic circus sideshow, with Burtka looking like a less-horrifying version of Twisty, the clown from American Horror Story.

All-in-all, a win:
