Step 1: Ventriloquest-Mother/Father and Daughter/Son

This is a pretty simple costume, essentially the idea being that the parent is the Ventriloquist and then s/he dresses the child (toddler age) as the Dummy. I think that as long as this idea is done in good fun and not too creepy that this could be a fun costume for everybody.

How To-
If you do decide to make your own costume for this idea instead of just buying a ventriloquists outfit and putting makeup on your child, here are some ideas.
The basis on how to make this costume is pretty simple, all your really need is a suit for dad if he is going to be the ventriloquist, or some sort of show dress for mom. As for the child, the same applies as far as the outfit. Then you want to do the makeup. The ventriloquist does not need that much make up, maybe a little show make up for mom, but as for the dummy you can just follow some pretty generic guidelines. Rosy cheeks, whitish face, teased hair, and draw some lines from mouth to chin. Make sure to keep this pretty lighthearted though, unless you are going for a creepy look.

(See some pictures below for inspiration for dummy makeup)
