There have been controversial costumes over the years. One that sparked enormous controversy well before Halloween 2015 is a "Caitlyn Jenner" corset costume. Despite public outcry claiming that the costume is offensive, popular retailers plan to go full steam ahead with selling the costume; one defending their conviction to sell the costume as a celebration of Jenner.[30]

The custom of guising at Halloween in North America is first recorded in 1911, where a newspaper in Kingston, Ontario reported children going "guising" around the neighborhood.[25] In 19th century America, Halloween was often celebrated with costume parades and "licentious revelries".[26] However, efforts were made to "domesticate" the festival to conform with Victorian era morality. Halloween was made into a private rather than public holiday, celebrations involving liquor and sensuality de-emphasized, and only children were expected to celebrate the festival.[27] Early Halloween costumes emphasized the gothic nature of Halloween, and were aimed primarily at children. Costumes were also made at home, or using items (such as make-up) which could be purchased and utilized to create a costume. But in the 1930s, A.S. Fishbach, Ben Cooper, Inc., and other firms began mass-producing Halloween costumes for sale in stores as trick-or-treating became popular in North America. Halloween costumes are often designed to imitate supernatural and scary beings. Costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts,[28] skeletons, witches, goblins, trolls, devils, etc. or in more recent years such science fiction-inspired characters as aliens and superheroes. There are also costumes of pop culture figures like presidents, athletes, celebrities, or characters in film, television, literature, etc. Another popular trend is for women (and in some cases, men) to use Halloween as an excuse to wear sexy or revealing costumes, showing off more skin than would be socially acceptable otherwise.[29] Young girls also often dress as entirely non-scary characters at Halloween, including princesses, fairies, angels, cute animals and flowers.

Why do we wear costumes on Halloween


Sometimes folks want to put together a 50s-themed event. That means poodle skirts and hopping music. Naturally, if you want to go for an epic group look, you only need to search as far as the hit movie musical (and stage play)Grease. Get a gaggle of dolls together in their Pink Ladies jackets and go Greased Lightning with your Thunderbirds gang. Become iconic characters like Danny or Rizzo or introduce everyone to the newest member with a kiddo costume!

Wonderland has all tykes enchanted. Of course, as adults some of those moments with the Caterpillar seem a little bit different. As curious as little Alice may have been as a kid, wandering Wonderland as an adult is even more fun! Pal around with the Queen of Hearts and show the Mad Hatter a few tricks they've never seen. Jump through the looking glass with a Wonderland group costume for adults! (Just imagine how curious Cheshire will be when left off the leash!)

It's costume time. The requests include fairy godmothers, superheroes, adorable animals, and their favorite toys. It’ll be impossible to put all of that together in one amazing group costume. Unless, of course, you turned to some Disney costumes! In this wonderful world, you're sure to find characters from all walks of life that manage to go hand-in-hand thanks to a few waves of the wand of our favorite fairy godmother! With Disney group costumes, you can introduce Peter Pan to his very own Dalmatian friend and you'll still have room for Moana and the Little Mermaid to help you find Nemo! And after all that, folks will just want to know when your Disney special is going to come out! Take a look at some of our favorite Disney themes or put your own group costume ideas together.

What should we do before Halloween


What stands out as the biggest and brightest of ‘80s fun? Was it the fashion? Was it the music? How about the movies? Actually, it was probably when all three of them blended together! We have a ton of 1980s costumes that are perfect for a group look. Get your legwarmers warmed up! When you go out in ‘80s style, it’s time to get physical with the ‘80s Workout Challenge. Have your entire squad star in their very own music video...or at least enjoy the wild colors.
The group was formed in 1983 by members Rick Craig, Brian Thomas, George Neal and Bill Whyte. Its debut album Don't Metal with Evil was released in 1985 on the Motor City Metal label. In 1986, Halloween started work on its follow up to Don't Metal With Evil, Victims of the Night. However, the record was shelved until it was finally released on Molton Metal Records in 1997.

Does the group work in the same area and does this area lend itself to unique or unusual decorating ideas? Sometimes the work area may remind you of something that allows you to create a theme around it. Example: our workspace had walkways that meandered around reminding someone of the Candyland board game. The workers then put brightly colored squares on the floor and each dressed as Candyland characters.
For a last-minute group costume that's both cute and comfortable, dress up as mice with your besties. First, each person will need a gray shirt. Hoodies, cardigans, and other long-sleeved tops also work well, since Halloween night can get pretty chilly. Top of your look with a pair of mouse ears and use pink lipstick to draw on a pink nose. Lastly, add a few whiskers with eyeliner or face crayons.
Halloween's breakout album Tricks, Treats and Other Tales From The Crypt was recorded in 2002 with what has come to be known as the Halloween 4.0 lineup. The 4th iteration of the band featured founding vocalist Brian Thomas, Axe Slayer Donny Allen, Jason "JDawg" Rossvanes on drums, Tommy Vendetta Guitar and John "Sixpac" Guarascio on Bass. The lineup was actually not originally intended to be Halloween, but unbelievable fan support for Halloween almost forced their hand. The band worked tirelessly to record a mix of classic Halloween "hits" and a handful of new/unrecorded tracks. The band played several shows stateside before being signed to headline the Keep It True Festival in Germany. It was during this era that the band finally made a run for Europe. The band had amassed a large cult following in Europe, but never had a lineup or management to get the ball rolling. The great success and European media blitz that followed the release of Trick, Treats, and Other Tales From The Crypt is what propelled Halloween into the spotlight it still enjoys today. Though short lived, "Halloween 4.0" is undoubtedly the incarnation that got Halloween out of Detroit. Following the departure of several members the band recorded a live demo in Detroit in February 2004 titled Not Dead... In The Murder City.
The practice may have originated in a Celtic festival, held on 31 October–1 November, to mark the beginning of winter. It was called Samhain in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man, and Calan Gaeaf in Wales, Cornwall and Brittany. The festival is believed to have pre-Christian roots. After the Christianization of Ireland in the 5th century, some of these customs may have been retained in the Christian observance of All Hallows' Eve in that region—which continued to be called Samhain/Calan Gaeaf—blending the traditions of their ancestors with Christian ones.[2][3] It was seen as a liminal time, when the spirits or fairies (the Aos Sí), and the souls of the dead, could more easily come into our world.[4] It was believed that the Aos Sí needed to be propitiated to ensure that the people and their livestock survived the winter.
We can all agree that the point of a group costume is to make sure everyone has a ton of fun. What better way to do that than to go the funny route? Bring your favorite cartoon characters to life and you’ll all be laughing for years to come, remembering the time that the Looney Tunes took the right turn at Albuquerque! If that’s too “on the nose” for you, find out how many clowns can actually fit into your car and give everyone a laugh. (Of course, if you noticed the clown nose joke there, you’re already a natural for a pun-themed group costume. Now that’ll put the play in “play on words!”) Funny group costumes are perfect for adults and kids...and kids dressing up as adults or adults going back to their baby years.

But you can even go a step beyond that. Double-up for two smiles and then keep on going. We're talking about group costumes, of course! Think of every team out there. The biggest challenges are brought down by a superhero squad. And do we even need to ponder how great it would be to finally unite the galaxy with the help of a few Star Wars heroes? Now that your moment is upon you, wouldn't it be great to strike out your opponents at the costume contest with an entire team?!

Do you want to be really famous? How about a group of TV stars? Pretty flashy, right? But you want to be comfy and a little cuddly, too? Well, it looks like Good Luck Bear is betting on you!

Nothing will take the wind out of your sails like a costume party when you don't have an idea. Of course, when you've got an inflatable costume, you're ready and raring to go with the flip of a switch. Bring the whole family along for this windy ride and breathe life into these hulking beasts. Are you all living a Godzilla movie with giant dinosaurs and King Kong ready to go all out? We’re here to help. And when you’re done? Well, fear not. Turn that switch off and your group costumes are ready to store away for next time.
Think of a unique way to combine the supplies. The saying goes that if you have a better costume, the more treats you earn. This is true! Combine the wings of a fairy's dress with a pirate's hat so you have a pirate fairy! Instead of wearing a lion costume, cut the head of the lion and turn the lion into a hat, similar to Luna Lovegood's hat in Harry Potter.

Is it time for a gals' night out? Well, tell the boys to go tidy up the kitchen because you've got places to be! If there is one way to make sure that the whole town recognizes that it's a Girl's Night, it's by dressing up in a look that sets the stage. We're not saying you all must match...but wouldn't it be fun?! There are a ton of great stories out there that only involve the ladies. (And several of the other ones would have been better that way, too.) From Mean Girls and Clueless to taking over Pawnee, Indiana with Parks and Recreation, we're happy to offer inspiration from some of our favorite themes of all-women group costumes to start the night out right. You can also put a feminine twist on other iconic characters when Ms. Captain America meets up with Superwoman and the newest Power Rangers!
