If you’re struggling to come up with ideas for a good group costume you can wear this Halloween, the Ghostbusters are an excellent choice. You can get male and female versions of the classic Ghostbusters uniform, Slimer and the Marshmallow Man. In addition to this, the costumes are available in child and adult sizes and this makes Ghostbusters a perfect theme if you’ve got multiple ages within your group.
The Ghostbusters franchise started out in 1984 with the release of the highly successful Ghostbusters movie. The initial success of that movie led to the sequel – Ghostbusters 2 in 1989 along with a range of popular comic books, video games, TV shows and the Ghostbusters theme song. Despite primarily being a 1980s franchise, the Ghostbusters have stood the test of time and are still one of the top Halloween costume choices today.
If you want to go as the Ghostbusters themselves, you’ll need to pick up a standard Ghostbusters costume. These costumes include a tan colored jumpsuit or dress (depending whether you go with a male or female costume) which is branded with a red and white Ghostbusters logo, an inflatable proton pack and a ghost phaser. As mentioned above, they’re available in boy, girl, adult male and adult female sizes.
Alternatively, if you want your group costume to have a more ghoulish touch, both Slimer and the Marshmallow Man are great group costume choices. Slimer costumes are available in two standard sizes – child and adult, and include a green inflatable jumpsuit that resembles the look of the green, oozing monster from the movies plus a pair of green sleeves and green gloves. The Marshmallow Man costumes are available in the same two standard sizes and include a white inflatable jumpsuit with an attached blue collar and red bow plus a white Marshmallow Man headpiece with a blue, red and white stay puff hat.
To create a group costume using the individual costumes above, you have three main options. The first option is to go as the Ghostbusters themselves and kit your entire group out with Ghostbusters uniforms. The second option is to go for a ghostly group theme and have everyone wear Slimer and Marshmallow Man costumes. The final and most versatile option is to go as a combination of ghosts and Ghostbusters and combine all the different costumes discussed in this article into an eye catching group theme.
As you can see, the Ghostbusters are fantastic group costume choice for October 31st that’s suitable for little kids and big kids alike. You’ll have hours of fun on the night dressed up as your favorite ghost or Ghostbuster and the costumes are sure to bring back plenty of fond memories of the classic movies as you celebrate Halloween.
