Dressing up as a group for Halloween takes some planning and a lot of creativity
What are good Halloween costumes for a group?
First off, we need to start by saying that coordinating outfits for a larger group of people can be incredibly difficult. Even if you think you have a super creative idea, it might easily get shut down by other people from the group. When picking out costumes it is important to think about what the others like and what are your common interests. Favorite movies, TV shows, guilty pleasures, it is all up for debate. What’s more, if there is some kind of an inside joke in your squad, recreating it might be the perfect Halloween costume idea. So, stop using that group chat just for sending each other memes, put it to good use and start brainstorming ideas.

Group Halloween costume ideas
There are quite a few different routes you can take when it comes to figuring out your costumes. First of all, consider of course if the group is made up of only men or only women. If not, then consider how many people are of each gender and figure out the costumes accordingly. Another thing to consider is how much time you have. If the costumes are too intricate or are going to be ordered online, give yourself enough time, because sometime sites, which sell costumes might take longer to ship them, because they are swamped with orders. If you don’t have enough time maybe consider costumes you can make up of things you already have.
