Costume Ideas for Groups of 4: Three’s a Crowd, Four’s a Party

“What are you gonna be for Halloween?” It’s a hard enough question to answer for yourself sometimes, but it can be nearly impossible to decide when there are four people in your group.  BUT – you have to think of all the advantages that go with a group costume: awesome photo opportunities that are sure to be good enough for a picture frame (or Facebook profile picture), you’ll be shoe-in for costume contests, and you’ll never lose your friends at a crowded party.  Still not sure what to dress up as? Don’t fret; we here at HalloweenCostumes.com have put together an awesome guide to help you decide what to be in your group of 4.

 

THE WIZARD OF OZ

 

Ah, can you think of a more classic movie foursome than the main characters in “The Wizard of Oz”? Follow the yellow brick road to your Halloween party as Dorothy, Scarecrow, the Tin Man (or Woman), and the Cowardly Lion. Look through more of our Wizard of Oz costumes and decide what works best with your group. Don't forget - if you're feeling more sinister for the holiday, you could also go as a pack of four flying monkeys.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

 

Going in four “Alice in Wonderland” costumes works perfectly for a group; there’s a good balance between male and female characters in the story, and they’re all equally exciting and crazy, so no one will feel like they got ‘the boring one.’ Your group could dress as Alice, the White Rabbit, the Red Queen, and the Mad Hatter. There are more Alice in Wonderland costumes to choose from, too!

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

 

If you are feeling particularly retro this Halloween, you and your group of four might want to consider going as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This crime-fighting quartet covers all the basic personality types: the leader, the silly one, the geeky one, and, well … the crabby one. Does this fit your group? Awesome! Grab a pizza and head out, your costume is set!

SUPERHERO

 

A super-hero theme can fit so many different types of groups. Are you feeling sexy and adventurous? Then go out with three of your girl friends and rock the town in short skirts and tight dress (don’t forget a cape!). Is your group more into the authentic look of the famous crime-fighters? Try on some replica costumes to really blow the competition out of the water. Superheroes seem to be one type of costume that everyone can agree on – even a family group! Check out all of our superhero costumes to decide what you should be this Halloween.

SPORTS FANS

 

Not really interested in movie character themes? Is your Halloween group more into going to the stadium than the movie theatre? Perfect! Hit your Halloween party as a pack of athletes. You and your friends could go as race car drivers, baseball players, boxers, basketball stars, football quarterbacks, golfers, or even a referee. We have a ton of sports costumes to choose from, so everyone can find a uniform from their favorite sport.

GHOSTBUSTERS

 

“Ah, I loved that movie!” Get used to hearing that wherever you go if you decide to dress as the Ghostbusters! Your group of four will be as popular as the hit movie from the 80s and you can find an outfit for everyone – kids, men, and women. Are you part of the group and don’t necessarily want to dress as one of the busters? There’s always the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

SUPER MARIO

 

Dress as characters from Super Mario Bros and reenact your favorite party games with your group of four this Halloween! Or better yet, throw your own Mario party for the holiday, complete with a go-kart track in the backyard and selection of mushrooms and shells to use as party favors!

RELIGIOUS COSTUMES

 

Looking to stir up a little controversy this Halloween? If you and your group of four aren’t afraid of a little drama, all for the sake of comedy, why not go as a group of religious figures? Get ready to act out everyone’s favorite jokes, especially every time you walk into a bar.

KISS

 

KISS is debatably rock’s toughest (and most awesomely-dressed) quartet -- which means if you dress up as this band for Halloween, you and your group of four will become the toughest and most awesomely dressed of the party! And, we all know KISS’s party anthem, which will help you bring excitement to any place you go, all night and every day. Go all out and dress in full, authentic KISS gear to really impress your friends, or take a different approach and dress as sexy KISS, which will be sure to pull the trigger on anyone’s love-gun.

POPEYE

 

For a cute and original group family costume, dress as the old cartoon Popeye! The characters from the show are recognizable and fun, but the idea isn’t overdone. Your family will look great when you’re out trick-or-treating, and you’ll be sure to hear a few “Why didn’t I think of that?”s when you are out ringing doorbells.

As with anything when it comes to Halloween, the sky is the limit. There are so many things you can be in your group of four: animals, zombies, musicians, cops & robbers, the Flintstones, movie characters, bugs, morning cartoon characters, pirates and more. Another fun idea would be to pick a color and base all your costumes around that, or all pick separate colors for a rainbow-themed costume group. Be sure to look through our group costumes to see what else we've come up with and hopefully it'll give you some inspiration. Once you have the perfect group costume set, you can focus on the most important thing: having fun. The more the merrier!
