Costume Ideas for Groups of 4

2020 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 have put together an awesome guide to help you find group costume themes with enough characters for a group of four!

There are so many things you can be in your group of four: animals, zombies, musicians, cops & robbers, the Flintstones, movie characters, bugs, cartoon characters, pirates and more.

Once you have the perfect group costume set, you can focus on the most important thing: having fun. The more the merrier!
