Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s getting to be that time when you need to make a decision on what you will be this year. If you are going as a crew, here are 30 group Halloween costume ideas to help you make that final decision!
1. The Seven Deadly Sins
This group costume is a great idea for your group of seven. Who doesn’t want to dress up and be a deadly sin? This is an awesome DIY costume that you can make with your friends and not spend a fortune on.
2. Batman Villains
This is a group costume than can accommodate any large group. With a list of 100 Batman villains you have plenty of options to choose from. You can go old school with a forgotten villain like Doctor Hurt, go with something in the middle like the Riddler, or go with the most recent movie villain and choose Bane. There are so many options with this one you can’t go wrong!
3. Three Blind Mice
This costume is perfect for a group of three. Create your own canes, grab a headband with mouse ears, and throw on a black outfit and you’re set. You never know who you will run into at the Halloween party, so don’t forget the sunglasses.
4. The Sims
Another great idea for a group costume this Halloween. This costume is cheap, and you can have an unlimited number of people in your group. Don’t forget the true sign of a Sim — the green diamond.
5. Cereal Box Mascots
Each member of your group can pick their favorite cereal and become the cartoon on the box! The best thing about this costume is you won’t get hungry throughout the night. Grab a box of your cereal and you’re set!
6. Mario Karters
This group costume might take a little more time to put together, but you will definitely get complimented on your efforts. If you’re going with the traditional Mario Kart game, then this is perfect for a group of eight.
This simple costume will turn all the heads. If you don’t already have one, pick up a nude-colored dress, and then all you need is a wig! Another costume with that works for any sized group.
Another great DIY costume. Grab some candy and you’re ready to go. If you have a little extra time bring along a creative stick or bat to complete the look. Again, this simple costume can go along with any sized group.
9. Jack Torrance (the Shining) and the Twins
This is the kind of costume only those who love horror movies can pull off. If you’ve seen the movie you know how creepy these characters are. If you want to dress up as Jack and his family, the costume is great for a group of three (especially if you have a young child), and the twins costume is best for two. Make the costumes as creepy as you can!
10. Characters from Kill Bill
This group costume can come from many different parts of the movie. Depending on what part of the movie you want to dress up as you can have a large or small group. As you can see in this picture, you don’t even need to be a main character from the movie! And come on, who doesn’t want to dress up as a badass for Halloween?
11. American Ninja Warriors
This show has become extremely popular lately. Don’t feel like getting all dressed up this Halloween? Grab a pair of gym shorts and create an American Ninja Warrior shirt to go with it. Grab as many friends as you want for this group costume.
12. Shark Week
Literally. Shark. Week. This can work for either a group of five, or a group of seven. The shark hats definitely make the costume, so be sure not to leave those out! This is another awesome DIY idea for Halloween.
13. The Players from the Game of Clue
The ultimate whodunnit? This group costume works best with a group of six. Pick your favorite character and dress up as them, but don’t forget your murder weapon!
