Have one person lead the chase in an inflatable T-Rex costume, and dress up the rest of your group as tourists in Hawaiian shirts and straw hats.

'50s Group Costume

No squares or party poopers here! Don't be a wet rag, grab your gal and head to the dance floor. Bold pink and black colors that define 50s fashion make perfect Halloween costumes. Men can dress like classic bad boys wearing leather jackets and greaser wigs — just try not to fight any jocks at the sock hop. The ladies can dress up like diner waitresses or show off their spunky attitudes with bright pink skirts and cute polka dot tops. When the jukebox plays some rock 'n roll, greasers and Pink Ladies should be ready to jump and jive!

Grill up a good time in a Bob's Burgers group costume!

Let everybody know who has the best burgers in town! Coordinating a group Bob's Burgers costume will be as wacky as the Belcher family themselves. With an adhesive moustache and white apron you'll be ready to run a burger restaurant that will blow Jimmy Pesto's Pizzeria out of the water. The eccentric friend of the group can put on the burger suit and bring Gene's unique charm to the costume party. Butt wait, you can't get the party started without Tina's rocking dance moves! Have a friend throw on the Tina wig and dress and watch them shake the night away! To add an extra creative touch, carry around spatulas and prop burgers.

Masquerade Group Costume

Add an air of mystery to any outfit with masks and capes. Accessorize a pretty dress with a lace bat wing shrug and matching mask. If you prefer wearing white, a gold filigree mask will create intrigue. Channel your sinister side in a large black cloak, a silver phantom mask, and a top hat to blend into the shadows. If you want to add some spooky vibes to your masquerade costume, pop in a pair of vampire fangs and drip a little fake blood.

Dress to impress in a mysterious way:
