10 Halloween Group Costume Ideas
I covered Doctor Who inspired costumes the other day, but with Halloween just around the corner, there’s still so much more to inspire! I’ve seen some pretty epic group costumes over the years at Dragon*Con, so today I thought I’d bring you 10 really fun group costume ideas that you can use this Halloween.
This giant group of male Disney Princesses is one of my favorites at Dragon*Con every year! It’s one thing to see a bunch of little girls emulating their favorite Disney characters (although if I had a little girl, I’d teach them why drag queens make for a better role model), but it’s a whole other thing to see a bunch of butch dudes with facial hair dressed up as Disney princesses. Check out these costumes to get started on a similar group costume look.
I love this group zombie costume, a parody of the Chick-fil-A “EAT MOR CHIKIN” cows. Instead, these undead cows are hoping they can “EAT MOR BRAYNZ”. Add some fake blood & gore and some homemade signs to a cow costume, and you’re ready to go!
Community is one of our favorite shows, so I had mad love for this Inspector Spacetime group costume! Inspector Spacetime is an obvious Doctor Who parody, and this costume is just specific enough to make it awesome on a whole lotta levels.
I loved this girl group costume, based on the original Josie and the Pussycats look. (Not to be confused with the 2001 remake with Rachael Leigh Cook, Tara Reid & Rosario Dawson. Which is awesome in its own right too.) Either version would make for a super fun & girly group costume!
The first year we went to Dragon*Con together, these old guys from the Muppets were just holding court, sitting on a bench in one of the hotel lobbies and heckling! This is such a fun and easy group costume – all you need is a suit and the masks, which are easily available on Amazon: here’s the Waldorf mask, and the Statler mask.
Every time I see a version of the Yip Yip Martians from Sesame Street, it makes me immensely happy. (As seen here!) While there is a ready-made version of this costume available, it doesn’t look nearly as cool as these guys. You’d be better off getting some chenille fabric or other fuzzy fabric and making these guys yourself.
This was seriously one of the most epic group costumes I’ve seen at Dragon*Con. An amazingly well done Pee-wee’s Playhouse group (plus David, sitting with Pee-wee, in his Dune stillsuit). Pee-wee is an easy enough solo costume, but it’s all the puppetry and other elements of this group costume that really makes it spectacular!
David is a huge Simpsons fan, so of course he had to get a photo with this group of Stonecutters! This would be a pretty easy group costume to make, with simple robes. Plus, you could carry around beer steins like these folks, to aid your drinking pleasure!
This was a really fun Venture Brothers inspired group costume, featuring the Henchmen and Dr. Girlfriend. Anything Venture Brothers related always seems to be very popular at cons, and it makes for a great group costume theme!
Finally, one of my absolute favorite group costumes I’ve seen – Weird Science! This is one of those work-with-what-you-got costumes, as it’s more about how the people look to begin with, plus a little wardrobe, than it is about creating a big costume from scratch.
