2019 Update: We've updated adding new costumes and groups.
“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. 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 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 find group costume themes with enough characters for a group of four!
The teenagers of Disney’s most infamous villains returned this year with Descendants 3. Evil Audrey was added to the lineup, rounding out a perfect group of four costumes. Sure, some of them are villains in the movies but in the end they’re all friends so why not head to the Isle of the Lost for a Halloween you’ll never forget.
Elsa took us by storm in 2013 with the release of Frozen. Now with Frozen 2 on the verge of release, you can bet that storm continues.

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. Are you looking to create a family group? Is your squad more interested in being as movie accurate as possible? 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 Costumes
Going in four “Alice in Wonderland” costumes works perfectly for a group. There’s a balance between men and women 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! If your group is a fan of Disney movies, remember that Alice in Wonderland is a Disney movie!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes
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.

Mythical Creature Costumes
Mythical creature costumes is another one of those great family costume ideas. Think about it, they’re alluring and unique. Which is how your family is to you so it makes perfect sense. If you want to make it more of a theme you can think of all those that have horns or wings. There’s bound to be one that your family member loves and wishes were real.
A superhero theme can fit so many different types of groups. Would you like to get a couples' costume? Then you can go out with your best friends and rock the town as a pack of superheroes. Is your group a family of famous crimefighters? Buy a superhero costume online and you might just save Halloween!
Mean Girls Costumes

Sports Fan Costumes
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.

Super Mario Costumes
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!
Sailor Moon Costumes
“In the name of the moon, I’ll punish you!” If you’re planning on wearing a Sailor Moon costume, you’re going to want to remember her signature phrase. Get some gal pals together as Sailor Mercury and Sailor Mars for extra girl power, but if you really want to round out your group of four, you’re going to need a Tuxedo Mask. He is Usagi’s main squeeze, after all! These Sailor Moon costumes are perfect for cosplaying at anime conventions as well as dressing up for Halloween outings, so you have more excuses to wear them throughout the year.
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.
The perfect group costume for mixing and matching, the characters from Grease allow you to create a great group or family costume. The Pink Ladies and T-Birds jackets make for the perfect combos—and if you don’t want to dress as one of them, you can don a Rydell High Cheerleader costume, Frenchy, or bad Sandy. Be sure you know some lines from “Greased Lightnin’” and “You’re the One That I Want” since you’ll be singing all night!
Batman Villain Costumes
It’s so good to be bad. Few superheroes have as colorful a Rogues Gallery as Batman. From the crazy antics of the Joker and Harley Quinn to the quizzical conundrums of the Riddler, there are few group costumes that will be as recognizable on Halloween. One of the most famous Batman stories is even called the Long Halloween—so get your crew together and cause some havoc! You can see all of our Batman costumes, hero and villain alike, in our store.
The Addams Family Costumes
“They’re creepy and they’re kooky. Mysterious and spooky. They’re all together ooky. The Addams Family!” Do we need to keep going? You get the picture, right? The Addams family makes a great creepy but not too scary family costume idea. Your family will be the envy of everyone on the block with these Addams Family costumes.
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!
