10 Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas for Groups and Couples


Are you and your friends still brainstorming last-minute costumes ideas?

Well you’re in luck, because we scoured the web for some creative costume so you and your friends can be the coolest people at the party — and most importantly — get that extra candy.

Here are 10 costume ideas for groups and couples:


1. Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated


Jinkies! Why not trick-or-treat as everyone’s favorite supernatural investigators from the ’70s? All you need are some ascots, a groovy hairstyle, and solid-color jeans, tees, and dresses. For extra candy, you and your friends can roll up in the Mystery Machine!

2. Johnny Depp


Here’s an idea … you and your friends can each dress up as one of Johnny Depp’s iconic characters. The options are endless — there’s Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, The Mad Hatter, Willy Wonka, and more.

3. The Mad Hatter and the March Hare


You and your best friend or significant other can journey down the rabbit hole tonight as the Mad Hatter and the March Hare and bring home trophy for “Best Couple Costume.”

4. Ash and Misty


If you want to catch ’em all — and we mean candy — you and partner should grab some suspenders, red shoes, a blue jacket, and a pokeball and go as everyone’s favorite childhood Pokemon trainers, Ash Ketchum and Misty.

5. Three Ninjas


Quick, grab two friends and hit your local karate studio and purchase some ninja uniforms to go as Japanese covert agent. You don’t necessarily have to master the art of ninjutsu, but it may help fill your pillowcase with more goodies if you can trick-or-treat at the same houses — who give out the best candy, of course — unnoticed.

6. Shrek and Princess Fiona



The beauty of Halloween is you can be ugly and look great! You and a partner can make everyone green with envy by going as Shrek and Princess Fiona.

7. Scary Sally and Jack Skellington


You and your friend can go as Scary Sally and Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. You can celebrate the scariest night of the year and the merriest time of the year at the same time.



Rock out tonight by dressing up as the famous rock band, KISS! All you need is black and white face paint, and of course, channel your inner Miley Cyrus  — or of course, KISS bassist Gene Simmons — and flaunt your long tongue!

9. Gru and his Minions


You and a group of friends can put on some yellow tees and beanies with some dorky glasses and go as the minions from Despicable Me. You will also need a bald guy — or a bald cap can do the trick — wearing a striped scarf and a black sweater and black pants.

10. Care Bears


Warm up the party by going as Care Bears! All you need are cozy pjs and bear ears.
