Forget the couple costume this October, because a group Halloween costume is the way to go. Not only will you and your friends look like badasses, but to spend the scary holiday dressed alike or following a certain theme with your closest friends has fun written all over it. Plus, can you imagine the photos you can take as a group? Yeah, you, your friends, and those pictures are going to look so good on Instagram — and make everyone jealous. Well, if you're in need of any ideas, then how about trying a "Bad Blood" group Halloween costume and follow in the footsteps of Taylor Swift and her "squad"? If you ever wanted to achieve #SquadGoals, now you can.
As Swifties know, pretty much everyone starred in the "Bad Blood" music video, which means if you have a huge group of friends, you can all channel your inner Taylor, Gigi Hadid, Zendaya, Ellen Pompeo, Serayah, or anyone else. Whoever you want to be, there are a ton of options. Also, there is no need to argue if more than one person wants to dress up as T. Swift. Remember, there is always room to overlap. Plus, do you really want to have "Bad Blood" of your own on Halloween? I don't think so. This really is the perfect group costume, because it brings women of all ages together and no one has to feel left out, because as Swift's proven time and time again, a "squad" can be as big as you want — there are no limits on friends.
First, let's get into the "Bad Blood" spirit by watching the music video:
Now that that's done, here are some tips to help you plan a flawless "Bad Blood" group Halloween costume.
Tip: You don't need to follow each character in the music video exactly, which is why this group costume is so great. If you just have the essentials and make the costume your own, it'll be badass. Plus, I'm sure Swift would want you to be your own person, so why not become your own "Bad Blood" alter ego?
