Another Halloween, another year scrambling to put together a decent costume. As fun as it is to dress up for the holiday, it’s even more fun to dress up with friends. You can recreate your favorite TV shows and movies, and you’re guaranteed to have someone stick by your side through a party. Because without both of you, the idea just won’t make sense. But then you’ve got to come up with two ideas, not just one.
Costumes with friends don’t have to be complicated though. In fact, some you may already have in your closet. You’re free to go as simplistic as a suit, tie and sunglasses for Men in Black, or go all in as Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy from Spongebob Squarepants. There’s costumes for every level of effort. Got a ‘Best Costume’ award to win? With these ideas, you’ll blow any competition out of the water.
Don’t stress out about color-coordinating, or making sure your outfit explains some inside joke that probably won’t be that funny to anyone but you anyway. Just head to a website, put in your credit card, and wait for the outfit perfect for you and your buddy to magically appear at your door. Here are 41 costume ideas for your and your best friends.
