Group Costumes for Children
Just as the expression ‘strength in numbers’ is applicable to so many situations in life, there is nothing quite as attention grabbing as a group of trick-or-treaters who are dressed in synch.
Whether they emulate the latest pop band or that popular sports team, group Halloween costume ideas always turn a few heads! They are increasingly popular at costume parties as well. What a fun way to celebrate! And group costumes can be as innocent as some floating daisies parading through the neighborhood, or as risqué as the imagination desires.
Group Costumes for Adults & Families
Halloween costumes for groups lend a unique angle to an already expressive time. With options ranging from powerful and moving to all-out hilarious, there are group costumes available for just about any group of individuals.
There are groups that dress as cattle, as sports teams, and as the cast from a hit movie. There are a huge variety of options within the cohesiveness of Halloween costumes for groups. For example, as you think of everyday objects or ideas that are classified into groups, certain possibilities will come to mind. Costumes could emulate a deck of cards, a rock band, characters portrayed together in a book, movie or television show. You could create wonderful themed costumes based on road signs or perhaps holiday motifs (birthday cakes, candles, presents). With a little imagination just about any group Halloween costumes can be agreed up and created.
One nice aspect about the group costume idea is that it allows a whole family to dress as a unit. This is a great contributor to family spirit, and if you are making the costumes at home, it’s a wonderful project that all family members can become involved in.
On a night full of terror and haunting fun, of candy and costumes, it’s fun to celebrate Halloween to the fullest. As you plan your costume, however, remember that bright and reflective colors will keep you safer while trick or treating. You might even want to add reflective tape to various parts of your costume so that you will be seen more easily at night. Additionally, keep your costumes short enough so that tripping over the fabric can be avoided.
It is also important to remember to have fresh batteries in your flashlight, and to remind your children never to step into someone’s home while trick or treating. Candy needs to be checked by an adult before children enjoy it, and pets should always wear their identification tags.
With a little bit of caution, Halloween can be a safe and rewarding experience for everyone.
