For many people the reason they are not looking forward to Halloween is the fact they don’t feel comfortable to dress up. Nonetheless, when they team up with friends or family, it is easier to find the confidence to disguise as other personalities. Couple or group costumes give you the opportunity to be a part of a team and have fun with your closed ones.
Here are some ideas from TV series and movies from the 80’s and 90’s you can incarnate wearing the right apparel, hair and makeup.
Beverly Hills 90210
Ladies who were teenagers in the 90’s must have been fans of Beverly Hills 90210. Brenda, Kelly, Andrea and Donna were the main female characters from the popular show. You need a brunette and a blonde with long hair and bangs, another blonde and a girl with curly, brown hair and glasses. As their clothes didn’t have any special characteristic, except for having the style of that decade, you will have to use wigs if you don’t have these types of hairstyle.
Sex and the city
Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda have become one of the most famous fictional group of women. Each of them had a unique style and especially Carrie Bradshaw’s innovative outfits are still popular. It is a great choice for a group of girlfriends as their disguise, but it would be a fun choice for men too if they have a great sense of humor.
