This Halloween you may have been considering dressing up as part of a group with a specific theme in mind.  Group dressing for the holiday has become extremely popular over the past few years.   You and all your friends can show up at your next Halloween party each dressed in his own themed character, and what an exciting impact your group of costumes will create!  Families can have a lot of fun dressing up together in themed costumes as well.  Choosing a theme that either reflects the personality of your family or is something fun that you all enjoy is a great way to come together and get into the spirit of this great dress up holiday.

There are many costume themes available to choose from, with ideas for virtually any age group or costume genre.  If you have kids (or even if you don’t) you may want to consider dressing up as a group of Crayola crayons.  These whimsical costumes that look just like crayons come in many different colors as well as sizes, so each member of your group can choose his favorite color.  This is a perfect costume idea for families!

If classic Rock ‘n Roll is more your thing and you and your group really want to go all out, consider recreating the band members from one of the greatest rock bands of all time, KISS.  Exciting and fun make up effects along with authentic costumes scream “I wanna rock-n-roll all night!!”  These KISS replica looks are going to give you a Halloween experience that is not only memorable but might even attract a few groupies.  Don’t forget to include the kids in the fun—they might not remember KISS but they are going to love the idea of really rocking out!

The story of Alice in Wonderland offers a plethora of rich characters to recreate as a group for Halloween.  Between Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire cat and the Queen of Hearts, your group will come alive with the entire cast from this great children’s adventure tale.  This fantastic trip down the rabbit hole may be the most exciting one yet!

Recreating several Superheroes may be one of the most thrilling Halloween group adventures of all.  You can choose to be an eclectic mix of several heroes, with each group member picking their favorite from great choices like Spiderman, the Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.  Or you may want to stick with one superhero movie theme and recreate the entire cast from it with choices such as Batman, Robin, Cat Woman, and The Joker.

Dressing in costume as a group of friends or with your entire family will amplify your Halloween fun immensely and will make your party or trick or treating experience that much more fun.  Get into an exciting Halloween group theme and make your holiday anything but BOO-ring!
