      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.

            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.

              7. Trolls

                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.

                8. Piñata

                  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

                                                                How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                                                                Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                                                                You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                                                                Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                                                                1. Work on the small tasks.

                                                                When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                                                                Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                                                                2. Take a break from your work desk.

                                                                Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                                                                Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                                                                3. Upgrade yourself

                                                                Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                                                                The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                                                                4. Talk to a friend.

                                                                Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                                                                Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                                                                5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                                                                If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                                                                Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                                                                Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                                                                6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                                                                If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                                                                Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                                                                Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                                                                7. Read a book (or blog).

                                                                The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                                                                Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                                                                Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                                                                8. Have a quick nap.

                                                                If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                                                                9. Remember why you are doing this.

                                                                Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                                                                What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                                                                10. Find some competition.

                                                                Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                                                                Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                                                                11. Go exercise.

                                                                Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                                                                Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                                                                As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                                                                12. Take a good break.

                                                                Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                                                                Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                                                                Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
