Hello, Halloween is here! Are you prepared? If your answer involves dressing up as a cat for the fifth year in a row, the answer is no. Unless you’re a superhero and had the foresight to plan your creative costume back in September, check out these 10 awesome costume ideas that will accommodate your whole squad.
1. Game of Thrones

2. Peter Pan and the Lost Boys

3. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Gather the squad to pull off this classic Disney group costume. The best part? Everyone can dress the part that really fits their personality. “The truth comes out when you do a group costume. All of your friends might say you should be Dopey, and you’ll find out that they think you’re dumb,” American University sophomore Katie Galbo said.
4. Girl Scouts
Take your old Brownie vests for a victory lap this Halloween, and maybe even get the old troop back together. “My mom sent my Girl Scout vest up, and when I tried it on it actually still fit me… so I looked like an actual Girl Scout, not a college student dressing as one,” said Florida State University junior Scarlett Dunkley.

Plus, think about all the adorable Insta pic possibilities.
