Scaring Up a Crowd – Halloween Costumes for Groups and Couples

When you and your gang get together for the big Halloween party, don’t miss out on the opportunity to impress. Coordinated costumes don’t have to be complicated to be cool.

For a limited time, our friends at are offering 20% off your entire order, plus free shipping on $75 or more. Use Coupon Code: afcValpakSF1 at checkout.

One of this year’s hottest ensembles is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Using online coupons to get lower prices, you can afford to raise some, er, shell!

Costumes for Men, Women or Both
You’ll actually have a chance of winning that costume contest when you have a great group costume. Guys: Check out the assortment of Minions from Despicable Me. Ladies: Get your girlfriends together and dress each as a different Disney princess. Or if you’ve got a mixed gang from the office, try a bowling ball and ten (give or take) bowling pins.


If you like the idea of fighting bad guys, try dressing as The Avengers or other superheroes. The online store is also stocked with villains. Because after all, you can’t have Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia without Darth Vader:

Couples Costumes
With the right clothes and a wig, it’s easy to transform you and your sweetie into a celebrity hot couple. But if you want to skip the likes of Brangelina, Kimye, or  Jay and Bey, you could go for some fun retro looks. Why not tacky tourists? It’s easy and always gets a laugh. Paint on a fake sunburn along the front of your legs for added effect:

Couples-tacky touristsThink back to your childhood and your favorite old shows and books. BuyCostumes has disco couples, a 1920s gangster and flapper, or Popeye and Olive Oyl (add the adorable Swee’ Pea bunting if you bring the baby!):

Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, or a Pharaoh and Nefertiti are all hot picks from the history pages. Or waltz in as a Disney prince and princess or a classy renaissance couple. But one of our favorite looks? A wall plug and socket!

There are classic combos like doctor and nurse, warden and prisoner, or the Frankenstein monster and his bride. If you and your honey like the down-to-earth ways of the Duck Dynasty clan, there’s a couples Halloween costume for that, too (duck calling whistles not included!):
