Minions Group Costumes
The “Minions” were a hit with kids and adults all over again with their very own movie getting released in 2015. Now groups of children, or big kid adults can wear the costumes as a group of minions at their next party. This may be one of the most popular group or couple themes right now on the market, so be careful you don’t get lost in a sea of minions at your big event!
Avengers Group Costume – Heroes and/or Villains
One of the biggest films of 2015 was “Avengers Age of Ultron” featuring everyone’s favorite superheroes, The Avengers. Straight from the Marvel comic books, these heroes and villains can provide some fun group get ups. You can simply go as the original team (pictured above minus Captain America and Thor), or you can go as any number of the heroes and villains from the movies. Others include the villains Loki or Ultron, Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver and the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury.
Batman Heroes & Villains Costume Group
While Avengers are popular with the Marvel Universe fans, Batman has been a timeless classic from DC Comics which has brought a great variety of movies, TV shows and of course, heroes and villains! The main hero is The Dark Knight, but he has been aided by Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman and others in his fight against crime. Some of the villains that can join the group include the classic Joker, the new favorite Harley Quinn, the Riddler, Penguin and Poison Ivy!
The Wizard of Oz Group Costumes
Speaking of timeless classics, it’s hard to argue against the movie “The Wizard of Oz” and its characters providing years of entertainment and fun for the imaginations of many. There are plenty of great costumes that arrive from this film and they can be purchased or made in do-it-yourself fashion. The core group has Dorothy, the cowardly lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow. However, other characters you can add to your group include the Wicked Witch, Glenda the Good Witch and of course, Dorothy’s adorable dog, Toto!
Super Mario Group Costume
The classic video game Super Mario Bros. has been a hit for many years and its characters have some colorful and fun costumes you can wear. The original game has given way to many more editions featuring new characters as well. These include Yoshi and Bowser, who you can add to your core group of Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach. There are male and female versions of both Mario and Luigi, as well as the Women’s Toad costume. Right now, Princess Peach leads the way in bestsellers for this group.
Disney Group Costume
There are so many choices when it comes to Disney movies and characters it’s simply mind boggling! Right now the most popular adult choices are the Maleficent Deluxe costume, Big Hero 6 Baymax for men or women, the Frozen Anna deluxe traveling gown and the 101 Dalmatians Fab Deluxe Cruella De Vil costume. However, sky’s the limit as you can go as a group of princes and princess such as Cinderella and Prince Charming, Beauty and the Beast or Snow Whie and the Huntsman. Borrowing from that idea you could also go as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves!
Star Wars Group Costume
The Star Wars film franchise made a major comeback in 2015, as the new “Star Wars The Force Awakens” movie trailer took the world by storm. With that, fans immediately began to talk about the newest characters such as Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Finn, Rey and BB-8. These costumes will make for a great group ensemble, but the classic characters such as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Darth Vader also great. Of course you can keep it strictly Dark Side and go as Darth with a bunch of Stormtroopers, if you prefer!
Group Halloween Costumes on Pinterest
We also strongly suggest heading over to Pinterest and checking out the “group Halloween costumes” search. There you’ll find tons of creative and clever group costumes you and your friends, family or co-workers can wear to impress. Instagram may be another option to search for #halloweencostumes or #groupcostumes on.
So what are some of the creative group costume ideas going around on Pinterest? It will mostly depend on just how large your group is, but there’s some recurring themes we’ve seen. For example, social media is always big, so how about a group of Social Media icons? You can have you and your friends don outfits which each contain the different colorful logos for the different social media sites. One person can go as Pinterest, another as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and so on!
How about another colorful idea? Go as a box of Crayola crayons (as seen above). Each member of the group will represent a different color crayon. This costume is a relatively fun and easy DIY costume idea that the whole group can work on with the right materials. Yet another idea is to go as a deck of cards as these lovely ladies did.
Video games are always a hit in pop culture and the classics tend to be forever loved. Two examples we’ve seen are a Pac-Man with ghosts group idea, and then the Super Mario characters group, as seen in our popular costumes that are being sold. There’s plenty of characters from the world of Super Mario including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong and others as seen in the information presented above.
You can also really go wild with ideas from the horror genre. As you can pick up pretty much any horror movie favorite, or invent your own scary or wacky monster ensemble. Zombies are big right now thanks to “Walking Dead,” but vampires are always in style, along with pirates and movie bad guys. Go as a group of horror movie icons such as Dracula, Frankenstein, Godzilla and King Kong, or simply go unique as a band of swashbuckling men and women looking for fun and booty!
