29 Group Halloween Costumes Your Whole Squad Will Love
by Alyssa Priebe
If you’re not part of a couple (either platonic or romantic), don’t fret. You and your squad can still dominate at any party with these group Halloween costumes. From T.V. characters to pop culture references, you can’t go wrong with any of these 27 group costume ideas.
Disney Villains Group Costume
Forget the Disney princesses. This Halloween, take a walk on the evil side with the Disney villains: Ursula, Snow White‘s Evil Queen, Maleficent—sure they come to mind first—but don’t forget some men like Scar, Jafar, Captain Hook. You can leave out Gaston though, because literally nobody likes his misogynistic ideals anyway.
Board Game Cast Costume
Turn into your favorite board game characters! A Clue group costume is super simple, dressing in each suspect’s colors and choosing a weapon. But you could also do Candy Land with Queen Frostine, Princess Lolly Pop, Lord Licorice and Mr. Mint. Whatever route you choose, this idea is a winner.
The Avengers Group Costume
For the trendiest group costume, go for the ultimate superheroes of this year: The Avengers. (And no spoilers, but after this year’s movies, you might want to make some of the Avengers zombies.) Looking for a more last-minute Halloween costume? Go as their alter-egos holding a mask, like this Iron Man costume from Her Campus.
‘Harry Potter’ Group Costume
There are so many different ways you could go with a group Harry Potter costume. You could be the Boy Who Lived and his friends, Ron and Hermione, as well as Luna Lovegood and Ginny Weasley and the rest of the Hogwarts students. We particularly love mixing it up and going as the teachers—Dumbledore, Snape, Minerva McGonagall, Sybill Trelawney, and more—or Voldemort’s (yup we aren’t afraid) Death Eaters and impress all your fellow Potterheads. Bonus points for finding someone willing to transform into the evil, terrible Dolores Umbridge.
‘Game of Thrones’ Group Costume
Sure you and your bestie can do a Game of Thrones power duo costume (do we have to talk about Jon Snow and Daenyrus?), but if there’s more, go as the entire Iron Throne-fighting crew! We give major props to this cosplay crew from Light Grey Art Lab. Just look at that authenticity! Yes, this is one of the more complicated costumes on our list but we have faith your squad can totally pull it off. And if you’re not finding it easy to DIY, there’s always options for this Game of Thrones group Halloween costume online.
The Kardashians Group Halloween Costume
Watch out for the paparazzi as you roll up to a Halloween party as the Kardashians. A Kim Kardashian costume means you need nude-colored athlesiure, Yeezy style. Kylie Jenner needs her signature lip kits, and maybe even baby Dream. A Kendall Jenner costume needs that catwalk pout for the world’s highest paid model, and of course there’s Khloe, Kourtney, and momager Kris. Get ready to pose for lots of selfies!
Social Media Sites Group Costume
When it comes to thinking about Halloween costumes, it’s best to think about what’s popular. And social media has taken over the world. Print out icons for each and center your outfit around their colors (red for Pinterest, cobalt for Facebook, light blue for Twitter). Or, focus on one social media site, and have everyone do Snapchat filter makeup for a super fun, last-minute costume idea.
The Spice Girls Group Costume
Sporty, Baby, Scary, Ginger, and Posh—you cannot go wrong going as one of the most popular girl groups of all time. And because the girl group just announced a 2019 reunion tour, now is the time to bring back this iconic group Halloween costume. As long as you follow each girl’s signature style (sweet and pink for Baby Spice, British everything for Ginger, leopard for Scary Spice, a sports bra for Sporty Spice, and high fashion for Posh Spice) no one will say “who are you supposed to be?”
Troll Dolls Costume
This group costume is all about the wigs. Make sure everyone finds a different color. From there all you need are tan outfits. This Troll doll costume idea is a great throwback to the ’90s toy, putting aside the recent Justin Timberlake-helmed DreamWorks animated film Trolls, and really focusing on the toy’s former glory.
‘Inside Out’ Group Halloween Costume
Leave it to Disney-Pixar to create characters perfect for impersonation, and Inside Out is probably one of the easiest. It’s all about the colors for each emotion (red for Anger, purple for Fear, yellow for Joy, green for Disgust, and blue for Sadness). Disclaimer: You must be able to pull off the facial expressions.
Game Show Group Costume
Come on down! This costume is definitely the right price when you DIY it, just like this YouTube tutorial! Put together the entire crew or just go as four contestants with cardboard bids. Other game shows to try: Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune, Deal or No Deal (you can fight over who gets to be Meghan Markle!), or Jeopardy.
‘The Voice’ Costumes
You have the standbys of Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as The Voice judges, and this season you have divas Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson as well as Kelsea Ballerini, but you can always throw back to some of your other favorite celebrity judges: Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguliera, and Miley Cyrus costumes. Throw in a Carson Daly with a microphone costume and you have the whole crew… just minus the spinning chairs.
Pokémon Go Group Costume
Pokémon Go became one of the top downloaded games ever, and this Halloween you can bet there are going to be some trainers running about. Sure there are only three main teams: Valor, Mystic, and Instinct, but you can easily make this a group Hallowen costume by adding in Pokémon (Pidgey and Rattata especially) along with Pokéstops, items (all the eggs), and to be really clever, a dead battery.
Dr. Seuss Characters Group Costume
There are so many ways to pay tribute your favorite children’s book author. Go as the Grinch with a green suit and add some Whos; slip into tutus for “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish”; or get a giant group together and go as all your favorite characters!
The Seven Dwarfs Group Costume
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s off to win a costume contest you go! Grab some over-sized t-shirts, add belts, hats and name tags and this costume is done. Of course, if there’s more than seven you can go as the whole crew with a Snow White, Evil Queen, and Prince Charming.
Pop Divas Group Costume
Go as the famous divas of our time like Taylor Swift (high-waisted shorts and red lips), Beyonce (go with a pink suit from the APES*** video), Lady Gaga (go wild like old school Gaga or tone it down for Star Is Born style), Rihanna (don’t forget all your Fenty Beauty items!). Or if you’d rather, turn into your favorite decade divas like Madonna/Cindy Lauper/Janet Jackson for the ’80s, or even Britney/Christina/Jessica Simpson/Mandy Moore for the ’90s. Whichever way you choose, this idea hits all the right notes.
Any Adult Cartoon Group Costume
‘Alice in Wonderland’ Group Costume
There are so many ways you can take an Alice in Wonderland group Halloween costume: Go for the pure Disney costume, switch it up with the Tim Burton movie costume, or head back to the source material in the original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland book. There are so many characters to choose from in each! Make sure you have an Alice (of course!), the Mad Hatter, and the White Rabbit for starters. Just make sure the latter isn’t late to the party!
Four Seasons Group Costume
This seasonal group halloween costume idea only works with four, unless you count construction season. But the basic idea is to wear blue or white for winter, pastels for spring, warm colors for autumn, and bright colors for summer. The fun part about this idea is you can keep it simple or be as intricate as you want.
‘Scooby Doo’ Group Costume
Sure it’s been done, but it’s a classic for a reason! Not only is the Scooby gang costume spooky seasonal, it’s not too hard to do. It’s perfect for a pair of couples costumes, and you can bring a stuffed Scooby Doo as your mascot, or you can bring five friends together. Just don’t spend the whole night taking masks of other party-goers’ faces.
Willy Wonka Group Costume
Here’s your golden ticket to the best group costume of the year. To get the whole Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Gang (either Tim Burton‘s updated movie or old school Gene Wilder style), include Oompa Loompas, Charlie Bucket, Grandpa Joe, Veruca Salt, Augustus Gloop, Mike Teavee, Violet Beauregarde, golden tickets, and of course the legend himself.
‘Star Trek’ Group Costume
Get in the Trekkie spirit and go as the whole Star Trek crew, either throwback or one of the new versions on TV and movie screens now. All you really need are yellow and red long sleeve shirts. Bonus points for any “live long and prosper” hand gestures.
Shark Week Group Costume
Make people laugh with this super easy idea, paying homage to the best week of the summer: Shark Week. All you need are seven gray tops that say the day of the week and shark hats. That’s it! Well, and pants of course— but you can do anything from jeans to matching gray tutus.
‘Peanuts’ Group Halloween Costume
Recreate Charles M. Schulz’s classic Peanuts characters for Halloween. You don’t need the lemonade stand or the mini piano (but hey, it totally helps), but you definitely need a Charlie Brown and Lucy costume. Bonus points for knowing the Snoopy dance.
Holidays Group Costume
How cute is this!? We love the idea of impersonating holidays for a holiday, like these group costume contest winners. Pick your favorites or go with who has what in their closet already. Focus on the colors like pink for Valentine’s Day, red and green for Christmas, red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, and you can’t go wrong. Warning: Watch out for cultural appropriation. Stick with turkeys for Thanksgiving and leave the Native American costume on the rack.
‘Once Upon a Time’ Group Costume
We love the idea of modern fairy tales, which is why we’re super into Once Upon a Time like these cosplayers. The show gives you so many characters to choose from. Go for season one with the Evil Queen, Snow, Emma, Belle, and The Dark One costumes. Or try for one of the later seasons with Regina’s transformation, Disney’s Frozen, Brave, or Peter Pan (though he’s awful). It will take a bit more effort and money, but if you guys go for it you won’t regret it.
Seven Deadly Sins Group Costume
If the the famous Disney dwarfs don’t strike your fancy, then try out this Halloween costume idea for your group of seven. Each sin is easily represented (sloth = bathrobe, lust = lingerie, gluttony = food, wrath = devil, greed = money, envy = green, pride = tiara), but you can be as detailed as you want. It’s Halloween, you can be a little sinful right? 😉
‘Mean Girls’ Group Costume
Do you wear pink on Wednesdays? Is your hair full of secrets? Can your breasts tell when it’s raining? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Mean Girls is the costume choice for you. Recreate the Plastics’ signature look with short skirts and shades of pink. More than four? You can always add Janice (black clothing and artsy), Ian (blue sweatshirt and black shades), or even Regina’s mom (pink sweatsuit), like this group halloween costume in the picture.
