      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!

              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.

                8. Piñata

                      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

                          12. Shark Week

                                                                How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

                                                                You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.

                                                                We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.

                                                                The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle. Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again. It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

                                                                Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps on how to stop procrastinating. These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:

                                                                1. Break Your Work into Little Steps

                                                                Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple that I might as well just do it now!”.

                                                                For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life). Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming. However, when I break it down into phases such as –

                                                                Advertising

                                                                • (1) Research
                                                                • (2) Deciding the topic
                                                                • (3) Creating the outline
                                                                • (4) Drafting the content
                                                                • (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10,
                                                                • (6) Revision
                                                                • (7) etc.

                                                                Suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases. When it’s done, I move on to the next.

                                                                2. Change Your Environment

                                                                Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace.

                                                                One thing to note is that an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

                                                                3. Create a Detailed Timeline with Specific Deadlines

                                                                Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late.

                                                                Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.

                                                                My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

                                                                4. Eliminate Your Procrastination Pit-Stops

                                                                If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy to procrastinate.

                                                                Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible. Disable the automatic notification option in your email client. Get rid of the distractions around you.

                                                                I know some people will out of the way and delete or deactivate their facebook accounts. I think it’s a little drastic and extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods, but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

                                                                5. Hang out with People Who Inspire You to Take Action

                                                                I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs or Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies — The Hidden Power of Every Single Person Around You

                                                                Identify the people, friends or colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters and hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email and social media. It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

                                                                6. Get a Buddy

                                                                Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals, it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other.

                                                                I have a good friend whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

                                                                7. Tell Others About Your Goals

                                                                This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects.

                                                                For example, sometimes I announce my projects on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

                                                                8. Seek out Someone Who Has Already Achieved the Outcome

                                                                What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                9. Re-Clarify Your Goals

                                                                If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.

                                                                Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break or staycation will do too) and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve? What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take? Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

                                                                10. Stop Over-Complicating Things

                                                                Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time. If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything.

                                                                Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

                                                                11. Get a Grip and Just Do It

                                                                At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen. Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

                                                                Reality check:

                                                                I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on, if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.
