Are you and your friends still stumped about what to be for Halloween this year? Try one of these easy group Halloween costume ideas that will incorporate your whole crew!

1.  Saved By The Bell Cast

Saved By The Bell Halloween Costumes

What a fun throwback! This is easier than it looks, because so many of the pieces you’ll need are in fashion right now.

For Jessie or Lisa, grab some acid or light-wash jeans (preferably high waist or with a tapered leg), your favorite loose sleeveless t-shirt, some Converse or Keds, and a brightly colored windbreaker or cropped jacket.

For Kelly, grab a dress with dated puffy sleeves or a loud print and your favorite neon scrunchies. In short, anything you were wearing in elementary school should work.

If you’re bringing guys, make sure they grab plaid button-ups to wear with their light-wash jeans.

  • Beauty Tip: For Kelly and Jessie’s hairstyles, try a look with tons of volume–blow dry hair upside down, with curl mousse for Jessie, or with a root-lifting spray for Kelly.

2.  Britney Through The Years

I saw a group photo of this idea, and love it. Each member of your group picks an iconic Britney look, finds images from the video/appearance, and styles accordingly. Some ideas:

  • …Baby Britney: The catholic schoolgirl from her breakout single way back when, complete with pink pigtail holders.
  • Britney at the VMA’s: Either the green ensemble with the snake, or the nude bodysuit with the sparkles/rhinestones.
  • Oops… Britney: Red pleather catsuits aren’t for the faint of heart, but will be instantly recognizable with some black lace-up boots and a high ponytail.
  • Mommy Britney: This one can go pretty satirical, with a white muscle shirt, cutoffs, fedora, etc. (Cheetos and children optional).

3. Cast of The Wizard of Oz

The Cast of the Wizard of Oz Halloween Costumes

This one is a no-brainer if you and a couple friends are stumped for ideas. Cat costumes are super easy to make, and also easy to find in stores. For the tin man, attack a friend with a roll of tin foil. Scarecrow’s look can easily be achieved with a plaid shirt, overalls, and some raffia sticking out of the sleeves and collar.

Dorothy is an easy costume to find in stores, too, finished up with some super simple braids that curl at the ends and the famous red sparkly shoes.

4. Glee-ks

Be The Cast of Glee For Halloween

This one sounds like too much fun to me–the focus would be more on getting a group of friends who is willing to break out into song and dance randomly all night.

For Rachel Berry, rock your baby blue and pink preppy gear like polos, crew-neck sweaters, skirts and tights. For Finn, see if someone has a red football jersey that you could borrow for a night. Tina should be dressed in black with some punky pink touches, and Mercedes should be wearing something trendy and as loud as she is. Add the other characters according to your group makeup–Mr. Schuester, Ms. Pillsbury, and Quinn would be fun additions!

  1. In the same vein as Brit over time, my friends and I went as Michael Jackson through the years to a party last week. We had a Jackson 5 Michael (plaid button down, afro wig), a Thriller Michael complete with tight red pants and a spraypainted red leather jacket, early 90’s Michael, late 90’s/early 2000’s Michael with a hospital mask and a baby in a blanket, and a late 00’s Michael with a messed up nose. It was super fun, and we got everything we needed at Goodwill!

  2. I went as crazy Britney two years ago. Complete with tank top, cut offs, ripped up fishnets, cowboy boots, short pink wig and a Starbucks cup. I was a little worried, but everyone knew exactly who I was! This year I’m going as Princess Peach and my boyfriend is going to be Mario!

  3. Other good ones if you’re looking for group costumes:
    Sailor Scouts: As few or as many people as you want, easy to sort by hair colour.
    Cast of Alice in Wonderland: Think Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Alice, Chesire Cat… Very easy because you’d only need a white bunny costume with a stop watch, cat costume that is pink and purple striped, cropped jacket and top hat for Mad Hatter, etc.
    Disney Princesses: Easy to find and very amusing, especially when you get to pick an old favourite 🙂

  4. i am going to be away at a retreat, but we’re still dressing up. i’m going as nadya souleman (sp) and the others are going as my babies.
    i got a tacky long black wig, will be wearing stretch pants and a non-descript top, will carry a baby bag with cokes i will pour into their baby bottles and have huge red lips and over done makeup.
