When it comes to finding good group costume ideas, you only have to look as far as Comic Con to get some wonderful ideas. There’s a wide variety of concepts, so let’s look at some of the most popular for Halloween 2012:
Batman gets released this year, and between the superheroes and villains, it’s hard to decide which character you’d like to dress up as. In this release, The Dark Knight Rises, there will be Batman, of course, and Catwoman — but the big bestseller should be Bane, with his creepy mouthpiece that exudes evil.
The Sons of Anarchy cast was at Comic Con in 2012, and there’s no denying this mega hit TV show will be a hot Halloween group costume concept. The women of the group can dress as Gemma and Tara, or one of the others, while the men can put on SoA leather jackets and accessories to play the part of Jax, Tig, Opie, Clay or Chief Wayne, to name a few.
Another favorite at Comic Con was the Breaking Bad cast and crew. Walt and Jessie Pinkerton are bound to be the favorites, but you can also have friends dress up as some of the other characters. Make sure if you’re dressed as Walt, that you don his signature “Heisenberg” hat.
True Blood always has rabid fans running about at Comic Con. You can have you and your friends dress up as the main characters — Sookie Stackhouse, Sam, Bill and the other vampires ready to feast on the blood of others on Halloween night.
Game of Thrones is a TV show about seven families fighting for control of the land, and it’s taken off in a big way as one of the hit shows everyone says is a “must see.” You and your friends will need to choose which family you want to represent and, since they’re all dressed somewhat differently, replicate their sense of Medieval fashion — from the poor to the extravagantly wealthy costumes.
The Big Bang Theory is a popular show and Comic Con attendants were excited to see the gang. You can dress your friends up with you as Leonard, Sheldon, Penny, Howard and Raj — and you can choose between their everyday geek attire, or one of the costumes they’ve dressed up as on the previous seasons, like when all of them dressed as superhero Flash for Penny’s Halloween party.
You certainly don’t have to stick with Comic Con for ideas, but it’s a good indicator of what shows people aren’t only watching, but are absolutely rabid about as fans — and that’s sure to win admirers on Halloween night.
