"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 you are looking for Halloween costume ideas for friends, or perhaps a family of four. 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 a shoo-in for costume contests, and you'll never lose your friends or family at a crowded Halloween 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 find group costume themes with enough characters for a group of four!

There are tons of great historical costume ideas perfect for a group setting, but there's nothing quite like 1920s America. Beneath all the glitz and glamor of the flappers with men in boater jackets on their arms, there was mafia corruption, women striving to find their political voices and children making a living selling the news. There are plenty of 1920s costumes to reflect the times, whether you're looking for sparkly flapper dresses or seedy gangster outfits. Historical costumes like these are wonderfully versatile, as you can use them for Halloween, decade-themed parties and even your child's history class presentations!
