Every year, my best friends and I try to think of a creative group costume idea for Halloween. We always want to dress up together, but we never know what to be. Halloween inevitably comes and goes without us settling on a group costume, and we all just end up being our own thing. Well, maybe we’ll actually pick something this year, because these ideas are pretty awesome.
When you think of a bunch of girls wearing a group costume, you probably think of The Spice Girls or Ninja Turtles or trolls or Disney princesses or something like that. Well, it’s time to think outside the box. Here are 15 fun and unique DIY Halloween group costume ideas perfect for you and your BFFs.
Up GroupThis is so cute! You'll need four people, but no matter which character you choose to be, you'll definitely look cute. I love how this girl did the peacock with a colorful tutu. Don't forget to carry around some balloons! Source
The 4 SeasonsI didn't think this would be cute, but these girls really made this work. Get four girls together, one of you is winter, one is spring, one is summer and one is fall. It looks like these girls fashioned their dresses out of a lot duct tape, which really shouldn't be that difficult. Source
Goldilocks and the Three BearsMaybe it's just me, but I've never really seen any Goldilocks costumes out there. Take the idea one step further by getting some friends to be the three bears. One of you can be Goldilocks (preferably the one with blonde hair since that would make the most sense), and the rest get to dress up as cute, cuddly bears. Source
Bardem Bellas from Pitch PerfectIf you're a fan of the movie Pitch Perfect, then you'll love this - and you can do it with a bunch of girls! Wear tight skirts, blazers, and white button-downs with pins that say Bardem Bellas. And voila, you're done! Source
Madeline and SchoolgirlsMadeline was one of my favorite books when I was younger, so I love this idea. This is especially easy if you and your friends already have school uniforms. You'll need plaid skirts, white button-downs, blue blazers, red bows, white gloves, Mary-Jane shoes, and hats. Oh, and a fake French accent. Source
O.P.I. Nail PolishThese girls must be REALLY dedicated to nail polish... or they just waited until the last minute to pick a costume. Whatever - you can't deny that this idea is totally unique. Grab different colored skirts, write OPI on them, wear black shirts, and write the name of the color on a black beanie. Oh, and carry around the actual nail polish too, if you're so inclined.

The Sanderson Sisters from Hocus PocusElaborate? Yes. Worth it? Definitely. Everyone knows that Hocus Pocus is one of the best Halloween movies ever, so why not show it some love by dressing up as the Sanderson Sisters with two of your best friends? Source
The Chipmunks from Alvin and The ChipmunksThis idea is too cute. Get two friends, and buy oversized sweaters - one in green, one in red and one in blue. Use duct tape or fabric to make your initials, then add matching knee socks, and little animal ears of course. Source
Band-Aids from Almost FamousAlmost Famous is one of my favorite movies ever, so I really love this idea of dressing up as the Band-Aids. Really, you're kind of just dressing as hippies while wearing a lot of faux fur, but whatever. You'll basically score all of the cool points. Source
The HolidaysIf you have a big group, dressing up as every different holiday is a really cute idea! Not pictured? Santa and a glittery New Years Eve costume. I'm not sure which holiday the girl in the white is supposed to be, and I'm also not sure if it's in your best interest to dress in that Thanksgiving costume, but... otherwise this is really adorable. Source
Mean GirlsBest. Idea. Ever. Just Google a picture of Regina, Cady, Gretchen and Karen, and then copy their outfits. You probably already own most of the stuff you'll need. And you also have to do this pose in every picture because it's perfect. Source
The Power Puff GirlsGot a cute trio? Go as the Power Puff Girls! It looks like these ladies somehow created their own dresses, but you could also just buy one blue dress, one pink one and one green, along with some white knee socks and matching hair bows and go from there. Source
Pretty Little LiarsThis idea literally could not be any easier. Get your best friends together, and you can all wear your favorite little black dress with black heels. One of you also gets to be A, which is really exciting. Source
Santa's ReindeersI'm pretty into this idea! You'll need a bunch of girls, a lot of brown dresses and brown boots, and DIY signs with your reindeer names on them. Oh, and also reindeer ears, because the costume wouldn't be complete without them. Source
RugratsThis is pretty elaborate but very wonderful. I mean, look at all the detail here! The cool thing is that this doesn't have to be all girls - guys can join in on the fun as well! Source
