Group Halloween Costume Ideas

in Group

Dressing up for Halloween is always fun. A trend that is gaining popularity is for groups of people to dress up in complimentary costumes with the same theme. This works equally well for adults partying with friends, family or at the office or with kids going out trick or treating. Possibly the hardest part of this is to find group Halloween costume ideas that work. Here are a few things you could try:

  • Batman is an all time favorite and with the success of "The Dark Knight" the Joker is bound to be one of the most popular costumes around. Why not create a Batman theme with the Joker, Alfred, Batman and other characters?
  • Another new movies that could work as the basis for group costumes is "Mama Mia." How does dressing up like ABBA sound?
  • Alternatively you could consider dressing up as any of the famous comics families like the Flintstones, the Jetsons, the Munsters and so on.
  • If you would rather dress up as people with distinctive dress from the same historical period - the Civil War, the Revolution, members of a European royal family for the 17th or 18 century are some of the things you could consider.
  • Rock bands, especially those with a distinctive appearance are always popular. Have a look at ZZ Top, Kiss, Metallica, Motley Crue, the Rolling Stones and the rest for costume ideas.
  • Of course most these ideas limit the number of people who can join in. There can be only one Joker in a Batman group, one king in a royal family, or one Mick Jagger in the Stones. For larger groups look at generic costumes - Cavemen, Egyptian Mummies, WWE wrestlers, the Keystone Cops and others.
  • If you want something more topical, you could try dressing up as down at heel, unemployed and bankrupt investment bankers.
The best way to find group Halloween costume ideas is to find a group of distinctively attired people, real or imaginary, that appeal to you and whose number is large enough to accommodate your whole group and for whom costumes can be either made or bought without too much difficulty.
