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 8 themes and more than 40 costume ideas to get you started!
1. Star Wars Group Costume Idea
Princess Leia Adult White Dress – Shop Adult Deluxe Luke Skywalker Costume – Shop
Adult Deluxe Star Wars Ep. 7 Kylo Ren Villain Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Star Wars Ep. 7 Rey Costume – Shop
Adult Deluxe Star Wars Ep. 7 Finn Costume – Shop Deluxe Star Wars Ep. 7 Captain Phasma Costume – Shop
Star Wars is always hot for Halloween, but with Episode 7: The Force Awakens getting released in mid-December, you can bet it will be huge this year! We have a variety of costumes from the original trilogy, plus those prequels that nobody really likes. (We kid! Kinda. Maybe...) So whether your friends want to want to go old-school or new-school Star Wars, you’re in luck.
2. Justice League Group Costume Idea
Adult Deluxe Superman Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Dark Knight Batman Costume – Shop
Deluxe Wonder Woman Costume – Shop Deluxe Adult Flash Costume – Shop
Adult Deluxe Green Lantern Costume – Shop Adult Aquaman Costume – Shop
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 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League to get the whole team together!
3. Avengers: Age of Ultron Group Costume Idea
Adult Deluxe Hulk Buster Iron Man Avengers 2 Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Thor Avengers 2 Costume – Shop
Deluxe Black Widow Avengers 2 Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Captain America Avengers 2 Costume – Shop
Adult Deluxe Vision Avengers 2 Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Ultron Avengers 2 Costume – Shop
The Avengers is another great option for groups. And with the Avengers: Age of Ultron still breaking box office records worldwide, you can bet a full group in costume would be a hit at any Halloween party. Plus, if all of the Avengers are accounted for, you can play a game of “Can you lift Thor’s hammer?” It’s, like, a law or something.
4. Jurassic World Group Costume Idea
Adult Inflatable Jurassic World T-Rex Costume – Shop Kids Dinosaur Costume – Shop
Adult Jurassic World Indominus Rex Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Jurassic World Owen Costume – Shop

Jurassic World 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.
5. Super Mario Bros. Group Costume Idea
Adult Mario Costume – Shop Adult Deluxe Luigi Costume – Shop
Princess Peach Deluxe Adult Costume – Shop Adult Toad Deluxe Costume – Shop
Women's Yoshi Skirt Costume – Shop Deluxe Adult Bowser Costume – Shop
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 crew, you’ll never be told that the party is in another castle!
6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Group Costume Idea
Deluxe Adult Leonardo – Shop TMNT Movie Women's Michelangelo Jumpsuit – Shop
Tween Girls TMNT Donatello Costume – Shop TMNT Women's April O'Neil Costume – Shop
Deluxe Child Raphael Costume – Shop Deluxe Child Shredder Costume – Shop
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a costume idea practically made for groups! A solo Leonardo or Michelangelo is okay, but for full effect you need the Turtles, April, and Shredder - maybe even Casey Jones! We’ve got a variety of costumes for women and men, kids and adults, so everyone can join in on the fun!
7. Toy Story
Adult Woody Costume – Shop Adult Toy Story Jessie Costume – Shop
Adult Deluxe Buzz Lightyear Costume – Shop Alien Pajama Costume – Shop

Toy Story is a family-friendly film franchise that kids and adults love. And, of course, we have costumes made for both! Just remember to play no more than two Randy Newman songs per hour for the safety and sanity of your Halloween party guests.
8. The Wizard of Oz
Women's Adult Dorothy Costume – Shop Adult Scarecrow Costume – Shop
Child Cowardly Lion Costume – Shop Kids Flying Monkey Costume – Shop
Adult Wicked Witch of the West Costume – Shop Adult Tin Man Costume – Shop
The Wizard of Oz is a perennial favorite, even three-quarters of a century later 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 Flying Monkey. But you can also substitute Toto, Glinda, or even the Mayor of Munchkin Land!
