Halloween is quickly approaching, which means it is time to start planning your group Halloween costumes. Choosing your costumes can be a stressful event for some people, so I’m here to give you a few ideas. Whether you do the bare minimum or go all out is up to you, but either way, your group costumes are going to look spooktacular.
If this is your first Halloween participating in a group costume, I recommend you and your group take it easy. The seven dwarfs are the perfect group Halloween costume to start with, and it is extremely easy to execute. If you don’t have seven friends, don’t worry— this group costume can involve only three of the dwarfs and people will still know who you are. I recommend wearing simple denim shorts with a black tank top or t-shirt. Both black or brown low-rise or knee-high boots will work. Now it’s time to get creative. You can go to any party store and pick up colorful hats to write or glue on the letters of which dwarf you are. Your options include: Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc and Happy. To add even more flare, you can create the belts that the dwarfs wear in the movie. Simply use a belt you have at home, cut out a square of brown construction paper and tape it onto to the belt. This is an easy and fun group costume and requires very little work.
To take on a classic snack that has been around for decades, you and your group could become M&Ms. This group costume is a great last-minute idea for those who weren’t planning on doing a group costume. All you need is six friends maximum and shirts that are yellow, red, blue, brown, green and orange. You can take a sharpie and write the letter M on the shirt, or you could even cut the letter M from a white piece of paper and tape or glue it on. You can wear any bottoms you want, but I recommend white bottoms to complement the letter M. If you want to take it to the next level, you and your group can wear white gloves. This is a costume that any group can pull off and come out with some sweet pictures.
This next costume is perfect for any group going in the dental route or in dental school. You and your group can be the different types of teeth. These could include being a wisdom tooth, canine tooth, baby tooth, sweet tooth, gold tooth and rotten tooth. This group costume requires planning and work. Using this idea requires wearing black leggings and a white shirt. However, to go the extra mile you could buy teeth costumes and wear them over your black leggings. For the wisdom tooth all you need is a long beard; the canine tooth requires doggy ears, a nose and a tail; the baby tooth requires a bonnet, bib, and bottle; the sweet tooth requires a bunch of candy; the gold tooth requires some swag; and the rotten tooth requires black and grey marks. This is a really fun group costume and will definitely be something people remember.
As you can see, your group Halloween costume can be really basic or can be on the extreme side. I hope everyone has a great Halloween night and that your group costumes are extra sweet.
