Picking a great costume for you and your group of friends. I usually do costumes on my own, because I always have specific ideas of what I want to be, but one year my friends and I decided to do something together.
We all went as different versions of a zombie, and it was awesome. We had such a good time getting ready together, and all night everyone knew we were a group.
The only annoying thing about picking a group costume is that it can be tough to get everyone to agree on one thing. So why not pick a movie you all love and go from there? Sure, a few people might argue about who gets to be who, but if you pick a good movie, then there are great costumes all around.
You can even pick something that allows you to all dress the same — like the Barden Bellas from Pitch Perfect — or you can go for something that lets you show off your personalities — like the Seven Dwarves from Snow White.
Check out these unique group costume ideas inspired by movies, and pick one for your friends! Skip this Ad Next The Titanic Is it weird to dress up as, like, a huge disaster that killed a lot of people?

Three of you can be the witches, one of you can be the cat, and one of you can be the devil.
