If you are attending a party with friends or taking a group of children trick or treating then group Halloween costumes can be a great way to have even more fun over the holiday. Before you make the costume everyone will need to choose an idea or theme and then either find or make their costume.
Little girls will have fun dressing up as Disney princesses. Just make sure you are aware of the weather if you need to go outside in your costume.
It is not necessary to go out and spend a lot of money on a Halloween costume. You can still look great by creating your own for items you have lying around or picked up on sale. Making a visit to the local thrift store, stopping at yard sales and checking out the arts and craft store will all have items that can be used to create costumes.
Many group costumes can be inspired form your favorite movie or television show. You and your group of friends can be characters from Batman, the Brady Bunch family if you have enough people, warriors from the movie 300, Charlie’s Angels, characters from the Wizard of Oz, Spiderman characters, famous villains, Wyatt Earp, his brothers and Doc Holiday, characters from the Lord of the Rings movies, the Ghostbusters with their ghosts, Mickey mouse and company, the crew of the star ship enterprise, characters from Shrek, snow white and the seven dwarves, teenage mutant ninja turtles and many more characters from entertainment.
Cartoon characters are always popular, specifically for little kids and some great ideas include Scooby doo and his gang, the Simpson’s, teletubbies, your favorite superhero, the jetsons and the south Park kids as a few suggestions. From movies you and your friends can be from the Indiana Jones movies, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Nightmare Before Christmas and Sex and the City. Just pick your and you have a group costume idea.
There are some group Halloween costumes that work well as they compliment others. A good example is five people dressed up as a royal straight, each person is an individual playing card and when they are together they make a royal straight. This concept also works well for a six-pack of beer or soda. If you have many friends then you could all dress up as a different act from a carnival or each of you chose your favorite work of art and dress up as something representative of that artwork.
Some group costumes specifically for kids include characters from Harry Potter, going as the cast of High School Musical, the Power Rangers, Rugrats, the Wizard of Oz, the Incredibles, Peter Pan characters, the Wiggles, Characters from Willy Wonka and the Care Bears. Kids also have a lot of fun dressing up as superheroes, fairies, animals and insects, dinosaurs and much more.
When dressing up as a group from a specific time period you can go as people from the sixties with tie-dyed clothing and long wigs. Dress up as the Romans or Greek or go as Egyptians. You can choose to go as famous Hollywood actors such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and James dean. Medieval and renaissance costumes are also popular when going out in a group.
