If you're a group of girls with quite different personalities, then dressing up as Greek goddesses will give you all the flexibility to choose a character that best suits you.
- If you can't wait to get into a seductive, revealing costume then dress up as Aphrodite.
- If you're looking for a costume that's fierce then why not dress up as Athena, the goddess of war?
- Do you prefer the gothic look? Then Persephone, queen of the Underworld would be the ideal costume choice for you.
If you're looking for a simple group costume that requires no sewing whatsoever, why not dress up as the Powerpuff Girls (see picture). It's a really easy costume idea for three girls...or guys! And the great thing about it is that you can use the dresses and belts for everyday wear when Halloween is over. All you'll need is:
- Three identical short dresses—one blue, one pink and one green
- black belts
- white tights or knee-high socks
- black shoes
- a pink bow—to wear with the pink dress
- Two hair ties—wear hair in pigtails with the blue dress
