    Superheroes are always a popular costume option for kids, and offer plenty of variety for multiples. Consider Superman, Batman, Spiderman or Flash for boys and Wonder Woman, Super Girl and Violet (from Disney's Incredibles) for girls. Power Rangers come in different colors, including pink, so twins who want to be the same -- but different (don't they always?) can choose their favorite ranger color and team up to battle the forces of evil.

    Dalmation Puppies

    Even if you don't quite meet the 101 quota, dalmatian puppies are an adorable option for kids who fancy furry things. Twins who want even more costume variety can consider combining the dalmatian costume theme with another breed of dog costume. It's "two" dog-gone cute!
