Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s time to get creative! Frankly, some of the most creative and fun Halloween costumes that I have rocked have been a part of a group or couple theme.
In high school, I dressed up as Pebbles while the rest of my friends completed the Flintstone and Rubble families. We went trick or treating and walked around singing the Flintstone theme song all night. I swear it earned us some serious candy! As part of a couple, I have been a vampire, fallen angel, and the Joker. Apparently, I have no problem joining the dark side.
Since I’ve enjoyed group costumes so much, I thought I’d share a few brilliant group costume ideas with you today. So grab your friends and pick a theme.
The Sanderson Sisters
Hocus Pocus is a Halloween classic! And these 3 ladies just happen to be everyone’s favorite witches, so why not grab 2 of your friends and bring these ladies back to life for one more Halloween. Of course, if you just happen to have a virgin lying around, you might want to recruit them to light the candle that will bring you back. Just remember come sunrise you might be toast.
This costume theme will let everyone join in the fun. Much like the game, you just have to pick your character – Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, etc. Then get creative. Decorate your bikes to race around town or design cars out of cardboard to be your vehicles. Just remember, don’t drink and race.
Every since the premiere of Once Upon a Time, Disney Princesses have been making a comeback. And it seems like there are more being added almost every few years, so everyone can pick a favorite princess to embody for Halloween.
You can choose to go with the classic princess look or you can make them all your own – hipster, steampunk, goth, zombie. The sky’s the limit!
You and your friends can spice up your night with a little girl power in the form of Posh, Baby, Sporty, Ginger, and Scary Spice. After all, you know you still know their songs by heart. Don’t try to deny it. And if you need a few extra Spice Girls, create your own – Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Spice, Corporate Spice. Go crazy with it! Who knows, maybe you’ll find your Beckham before the night is through.
If you’re looking for a more updated girl group, then throw on a blue blazer and tie a yellow scarf around your neck to join the Barden Bellas. They’re aca-awesome! You can even take the theme further by including the Treblemakers, but be prepared for people to ask for an impromptu sing-off.
Orange is the New Black
Bring out your inner creeper or tough girl by dressing up as the guys and gals from Orange is the New Black. Not only will everybody recognize you in your prison gear, but you’ll be a lot more comfortable than those women in stiletto heels!
Big Bang Theory
Bust out your Bazinga tees and embrace your inner nerd to bring the characters of the Big Bang Theory off the screen. Comic books, Schrödinger’s cat, Will Wheaton and the Cheesecake Factory are all appropriate topics of conversation when embodying this intelligent group. And if you’re dressing up as a couple, just choose your favorite Big Bang couple – Sheldon & Amy, Leonard & Penny, or Howard & Bernadette.
This fun group costume is perfect for families and friends. All you need is Gene’s burger costume, Louise’s bunny hat, Bob’s apron, Linda’s well stacked rack (of spices), Tina’s love of zombie erotica and you’re set! If you want to expand your group, make sure to include Jimmy Jr., the twins, and other awesome characters.
What will your costume be for Halloween? Have you ever dressed up in a group costume?
