Quick, guys, the clock is ticking. It seems far away for now, but Halloween is creeping up faster than you think. I’m so not about to line up for two hours just to get inside a costume shop 24 hours before the big day just to buy some overpriced tube of fake blood. And if you’re thinking about dressing up with more than three people? The time to plan is now!

Group costume ensembles are tricky, especially if you’re trying to avoid the cliché “slutty” whatever (if I see another slutty nurse or cat this year again…). Here’s a list of pop-culture inspired costumes you can try this year with your friend group that will guarantee to win everyone over.

Anyone who owns a Netflix account will probably consider a Stranger Things outfit for this year. This is a colorful ensemble that cannot go wrong. Plus, who says no to the 80’s?

Hello? Jurassic Park anyone? What a classic! Whoever is dressing up as Ian Malcolm has to own the low cut black shirt. I’d also bring a paper maché dinosaur egg to complete the look.

Okay, I mean… look at this trio, they are seriously killing it. Adventure is waiting, clearly!

Fast Food Chain Costumes: If you don’t have french fries on hand, why not become one? (East coast alternative: Shake Shack).

Superhero themes will no doubt be a popular one. The Avengers series may be over, but the fandom isn’t. It would be the real deal if you can get at least 4-5 people in this ensemble:

Alternatively, own the night in outfits from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter:

Or this: a spot-on , colorful (and shirtless?) ensemble costume inspired by Mario Kart?

Okay, last one. The Flintstones. What could possibly go wrong with this one? It’s a winner, too, right?
