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.
