They say two's company and three's a crowd, but when it comes to Halloween, the more the merrier. Gather your crew to take your costume planning to a whole new dimension this year, as some of the best ideas for 2016 require a few participants. Be the talk of the party and guarantee your win at the night's costume contest with these creative group Halloween costume ideas for 2016.

Inspired by the pop culture happenings that grabbed our attention in 2016, this collection of costumes is super relevant and sure to impress. Whether you're suiting up as superheroes for a night full of action or spiffing up in suits and vying for that first impression rose, you and your crew will be dressed for a night to remember. Reenact your favorite shows, upping the spookiness of Halloween with Stranger Things or bringing to life the scary realities of adulthood from Girls. You and your friends can take a cue from the silver screen for blockbuster style that is every bit #SquadGoals by gearing up as Ghostbusters, Suicide Squad, or pick sides as Team Iron Man or Team Captain America. Or, be real life heroes for the night, showing off your superpowers and grabbing all the gold like the Rio Olympic's Final Five.
