Halloween Costume Ideas for Groups of 6

Hanging with your friends on Halloween is pretty much the best thing ever, especially if you’re all wearing costumes. (Because who doesn’t wear a costume with their friends? Don’t be that person.) And what’s even better is when everyone is coordinated to fit a specific series or theme! So get your friends together, pick some costumes, and rock your next Halloween party. Here are several iconic group costume themes and more than enough Halloween costume ideas to get you started!


1. Star Wars Costume Ideas for Groups

Star Wars is always hot for Halloween, and with so many characters, you can see how easy it is to make a group of 6 Star Wars costumes. Whether you prefer to stick with the original trilogy or you enjoy some of the newer movies and television series, there are plenty of Star Wars costumes for adults and kids. So whether your friends want to want to go old-school or new-school Star Wars, you’re in luck!


2. Group Disney Costume Ideas

If you're looking for an incredibly flexible group costume idea, it's hard to beat Disney costumes. You can get the gal pals together for a Disney Princess group costume, make a Disney villains group or try a number of other ideas. After all, flexibility is a plus when working with large group costumes. There's nothing stopping you from going beyond a group of 6 costumes—you can easily have 10 or more!


3. Scary Costume Ideas for Groups

Is there anything more perfect for Halloween than a group of your favorite horror movie villains? (We certainly don't think so!) Getting together a group of scary Halloween costumes is pretty easy with horror icons like Pennywise, Michael Myers, Annabelle and more. However, this group costume idea is probably best for adult costume parties so that you don't scare anyone's kids.


4. Group Avengers Costume Ideas

The Avengers is another great option for costume groups. And with the popularity of superhero movies, you can bet a full group in Avengers costumes would be a hit at any Halloween party. Plus, if all of the Avengers are accounted for, your Marvel costume group can play a game of “Can you lift Thor’s hammer?” It’s, like, a law or something.


5. Justice League Costume Ideas for Groups

When it comes to superhero costumes, Batman and Superman are Halloween staples. But they’re not exactly group-friendly, unless your plan is for everyone to growl “I’m Batman!” at each other. Take advantage of the excitement for new DC comics movies and get the Justice League gang back together!


6. Group Jurassic Park and Dinosaur Costume Ideas

Jurassic Park is appropriate for all kinds of groups, whether you’re planning for adults or kids, or if your theme is cute or scary. And we’ve got dinosaur costumes of all kinds, so you can be sure to find something for everyone. Just stay away from using actual road flares or goats chained to sticks. Trust us, that type of Halloween party always ends up in tomorrow’s paper.


7. Super Mario Bros Costume Ideas for Groups

Super Mario Bros. is a fun group idea simply because of the diversity of characters. You’ve got your humans, your dinosaurs, and whatever Toad is supposed to be. You know, other than a Fun Guy. (We’re here all week, folks.) What we’re saying is this: if you can put together a full Super Mario Bros. costume crew, you’ll never be told that the party is in another castle!


8. Group Toy Story Costume Ideas

Toy Story is a family-friendly film franchise that kids and adults love. And, of course, we have Toy Story costumes made for both kids and adults! Just remember to play no more than two Randy Newman songs per hour for the safety and sanity of your Halloween party guests.


9. The Wizard of Oz Costume Ideas for Groups

The Wizard of Oz is a perennial favorite, even decades after its release! And its varied, iconic cast makes it a great choice for large groups. We went with Dorothy, her three companions (Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Tin Man), plus the Wicked Witch and a Glinda. But you can also substitute Toto, a flying monkey, or even the Mayor of Munchkin Land!


10. Group Alice in Wonderland Costume Ideas

Whether you prefer the book or the movies, there are tons of characters and costumes for Alice in Wonderland. Be the Queen of Hearts with an entourage of card minions or dress up like the core cast. There's no wrong way to slice it. You can't deny that Alice in Wonderland is one of the best group Halloween costume ideas around! (If anyone doesn't agree, you can just yell "off with their heads"!)
