Other notables: the high-five, five senses, the number of piano concertos by Beethoven, the five-second rule, the Olympic rings and the movie The Fifth Element. Another great thing that can come in a group of five? Halloween costumes! Here are some Halloween costumes for groups of 5.

Costume Ideas for Dudes with Beards

What do you do when you have a big old beard and you’re trying to come up with a Halloween costume with a beard? You use it, of course! Embrace that facial hair and let it be part of your ensemble.
