Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’re still scratching your head trying to think of a costume, here’s a suggestion: get some friends together and try a group costume! The benefits are many. It takes the pressure off you to come up with a costume for yourself. It shows the world that you and your friends do everything together, even the holidays.

But get some friends onboard and suddenly you’re a member of the Village People!
