It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is just a few weeks away.
That means it’s time to organize your crew and figure out what you should be this year. Whether you’re heading to a house party or out to the bars, you need to have a perfectly coordinated group costume. If you’re in search of some ghostly inspiration, here are a few ideas:
The Walking Dead
These kiddos absolutely killed (see what we did there?) the Walking Dead cast of characters. Take a page out of their book for this Halloween.
Three Blind Mice
It’s more clever than your typical mouse costume, plus it’s perfect if you’ve got your two besties going out with you.
The Price is Right
This TV show will never get old, and the costumes are easy and inexpensive to make. Come on down, this is exactly what you should be for Halloween this year.
Red Solo Cups
Red solo cups are an essential part of any party, so if the festivities don’t truly begin until you walk in the door, this is the perfect choice for you.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
This sexy spin on the childhood favorite is a great costume if you want something nostalgic with a touch of flirty.
Who DIDN’T waste dozens upon dozens of quarters playing PacMan as a kid? Pay tribute to this classic game with this group costume.
Spread out throughout the bar and you’ll be bringing the books you loved as a kid to life.
Clever and easy to make. Live every Halloween like it’s Shark Week.
If you’re looking to win a costume contest this Halloween, these ideas should be a good place to start. Nothing screams “give me a gift card to this bar” like something that’s timely, clever, and culturally relevant.
