36 Creative Group Halloween Costume Ideas

How much fun would it be for your whole group or class or team or cul-de-sac to show up at your Halloween festivities - not in matching costumes - but in homemade, creative costumes that go together, costumes along a theme? Imagine the splash you and your friends could make, all dressed as colorful, maybe wicked characters from a favorite story or movie. Or, what would people say if the entire front office staff came to the annual office party as comic books - or as fruitcakes? Farm animals? Game pieces? Well, the idea is to think outside of the ordinary - after all, this is Halloween!

Check out these favorites below and others around the site for idea for your own office or group.

Why should your groupmake your own costumes?

Well, it's more creative and much more fun, especially when you're doing it as a group. You have a much, much wider range of costuming choices than store-bought, and homemade allows everyone to express their originality. The ones in the store are pretty predictably all-the-same and so it's hard enough to come up with enough individualized store-bought themed costumes for a family, much less a whole group - so home-made is definitely the way to go. The sky's the limit to the amount of fun you can have both out-doing each other and helping each other out... then put on smile and enjoy the "wow's" when you all make your grand entrance!

So, gather your ideas, your cardboard and felt and duct tape and makeup, buy a few boxes of safety pins, and have the best time ever this year as the talk-of-the-town! Then, don't forget to submit your photos for our photo contest. If you look you will see that we already have some for this year's contest in this category, and we surely hope you too will want to compete. Be sure to "like" or "pin" your favorites, and let your friends and family know where to find ideas for Halloween.
