# 1 Full-on Farrell

Will Farrell reinvents his look so often in his movies that now he’s a one-man group Halloween costume. Whether it’s Ricky Bobby, Ron Burgundy, Big Earl, or Chazz Michael Michaels, a Will Farrell group getup is one of the best group ideas.

My girl friends and I did it again! Best Group Costume three years in a row. We went ‘Full-on Ferrell’ this Halloween! (side-by-side of 2012, 2013 and 2014 in comments)


# 2 A Robin Williams Tribute

The late comedian not only brought smiles to everyone’s faces, he brought to life some of the best characters we know and love. He has played the lovable Mrs. Doubtfire, the iconic cartoon sailor Popeye in the 1980’s live-action film, Alan Parrish from Jumanji, and even voiced the lively Genie from Disney’s Alladin. Pay an homage to the great Robin Williams this Halloween by dressing up as the characters he portrayed.

#3 Your Favorite Medical Drama Cast

There are so many medical dramas out there, we don’t even have to look exactly like the actors on the show. It’s easiest to wear scrubs, a lab coat, and a stethoscope in a group so you look like regular people pretending to be doctors on Halloween.

First group costume was a success

#4 Trolling in a Group

Since the Dreamworks movie Troll will be released soon, now’s the best time to dress up as the lovable creatures. Get your tall neon-colored wigs, and nude-toned minis, put on your best teeth-baring grins, and pose with your friends this Halloween.

#5 Carrey On

Comedians really know how to change up their looks dramatically. Jim Carrey is another actor with dozens of looks, for dozens of iconic characters. The most memorable Carrey look has to be from The Mask, but you can also dress up as the Grinch, Ace Ventura, The Cable Guy, The Riddler, or Count Olaf.

My girl friends and I did it again! Best Group Costume two years in a row. A very “Carrey” Halloween.

#6 Social Media Butterflies

The most unique, and ingenious, group costume idea! All you need is to find, or make, T-Shirts with a social media icons on it. Complete the look with butterfly wings, and feelers to have a group of social media butterflies.

#7 Ghostbusting this Halloween

There are plenty of (fake) ghosts roaming around on Halloween. So it’s the best time to be the ultimate ghostbusting team. And thanks to the 2016 remake of the classic Ghostbusters film, catching ghouls isn’t a man’s job anymore.

#8 The Happy Meal Gang

If you want to show your love for McDonald’s, dress up as the Happy Meal Gang for Halloween. There are some memorable characters like Sundae, Hamburglar, Birdie, Mayor McCheese, Officer Big Mac and Grimace, so everyone in your group can find a costume they love.

#9 Men in Tights

Robin Hood and his Merry Men are great characters to dress up as. But if you want to make an impact, dress up as the band of thieves from Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights. All you need is the classic Robin Hood costume, and a really tight pair of tights.

We’re men! We’re men in tiiights!

#10 The Mushroom Kingdom’s Hero

You have to credit Seth Rogen for making this group costume a big hit this year. The actor donned eight costumes for his Hilarity For Charity Halloween party this year. He hit the red carpet at the party with his friends all dressed up as the Super Mario ensemble. The lovable plumber from Mushroom Kingdom, his brother Luigi, and Princess Peach are only a few character options from the mega-popular video game, that’s becoming one of the latest trends in group costumes.
