At some point in my life I’d like to do a really rad group costume. Group costumes are some of the most fun and at the very least it’s always a blast to have a costume buddy. So if you’ve got a group and you’re thinking of costumes, I’ve got a couple suggestions. Now, every group costume comes with it’s own set of challenges. There’s always a character that EVERYBODY wants to be and a character that NOBODY wants to be and a few in-between. I'm sure you'll figure it out.
A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
Not only is A League of Their Own one of the best movies ever- it’s also a fairly accessible costume and can lend itself well to large or small groups. Instantly recognizable but not so sexy that you won’t be able to eat bread for a week.
Super sassy Madonna was the bombshell. Everybody wants to be her- call dibs early.
You’d think it would be Marla Hooch, right? Nope.
“Why do you gotta be so good!?” Just the right amount of angst and pigtails to be fun.
THE BABYSITTERS CLUB
California girl style, health food addict and tree hugger.
What a dud. Why would anybody want to be Mallory?
I was talking with my friend Elaine about this earlier and she brought up a very valid point that the 90’s tomboy outfit potential for Kristy is just unparalleled.
The most iconic of the bunch. The union jack dress and the red hair with blonde highlights. If you are the redhead of the bunch, congrats you’ve got dibs.
Although it’s arguably the most comfortable costume, it’s really the least fun.
Admittedly he's a left-field character from Spice World. When the option arises to be Alan Cummings, that option should be explored.
Dibs on Poncho Punch.
