Group Detour Ahead!
Stop traffic with these great traffic cone costumes! It's easy to get started.
1. For each costume, you'll need several sheets of neon orange poster board for the cone and a large piece of Styrofoam for the base.
2. Begin by folding one sheet of poster board around so that it makes a cone shape. Make it large enough that your head will fit in the bottom. Try to adjust the shape so there is a small opening at the top, as shown in the picture. Once you have a good shape that fits over your head and rests on your shoulders, secure all of the seams with packing tape.
3. Fit the next sheet of poster board into the bottom of the first. By overlapping the bottom inch or so, you should easily be able to continue the shape down to this next layer. If the poster board doesn't go all the way around the shape, add a second sheet. Once you have this second layer shaped, tape all seams with clear packing tape. Tape the top of this second layer to the bottom of the top layer.
4. Follow the same steps to add a third layer of bright orange to complete the cone shape. Before taping it in place, stand back and look at the shape. Make sure you have a true conical shape, with the size gradually growing larger as it goes down.
5. Once you have the shape, use a pencil to draw a line all the way around the bottom of the cone so that, when cut, the cone will sit squarely on the floor. Before you trim the cone, however, you need to go back and sketch in several tabs – one every few inches – to provide a platform for the base to rest upon. The tabs should measure at least 2" square, jutting into the portion that will be cut off of the bottom.
6. Next, trim this bottom edge, taking care not to cut the tabs off.
7. At this point, it's a good idea to try the cone on. Keep a pencil in hand to mark the point of your shoulders, or have a helper stand on the outside to mark it for you. Mark the location for a face hole as well.
8. Remove the costume and cut arm holes, from the point of the shoulder and down a bit, as shown in the photo. Cut a hole for your face.
9. To make the base, first paint the foam bright orange (or use more poster board). Allow it to dry, then place the cone on the bottom surface of the Styrofoam. Use a marker to draw a circle immediately around the base of the cone.
10. Remove the cone and carefully trim just inside this circle. You want to be very careful not to make the hole too big!
11. Slip the base over the cone. Turn the cone sideways and fold the tabs up. Tape them to the bottom of the base with packing tape to hold the base securely in place.
12. Finally, slip the cone over your head. Mark any adjustments to the arm or face holes with a pencil and remove the costume before making cuts.

It's A Deal!
Here's a great choice of group Halloween costume ideas for a circle of lovely ladies! This costume idea starts with a shopping trip – what could be more fun?
1. Grab your girlfriends (or guys with a sense of humor) and head to the store. All of the girls need a matching dress. Flashy, alluring dresses are staples on the show, but everyone can go for a more modest outfit if they'd like. To pull off the look, however, they all must match.
2. "Howie" needs a dark suit and a bald head, so go to a costume store to find a hairless wig for the man in your group.
3. For the cases, you can certainly buy a silver briefcase but you might have more fun making a lightweight version yourself. One really easy method is to use a block of Styrofoam that is approximately the size of the case. Wrap it in heavy duty aluminum foil and use black electrical tape to affix a number (1-26).
For the handle, use thin nails or long pushpins to press a black strap into the top of the case. The light Styrofoam won't require heavy-duty support, so that should hold it nicely.
Just three easy steps for this fun selection from a list of group Halloween costume ideas that are sure to turn heads!
Group Arcade Antics
Remember Pac Man? Bring back the arcade favorite with these choices of original group Halloween costume ideas!
1. You'll need a large sheet of cardboard for each character. To recreate the size of those in the picture, you'll need a three foot circle for Pac Man (the yellow guy) and a piece measuring three feet by two feet for the blue ghost.
2. Cut the cardboard into the shape you want to make. (A note to groups: a single Pac Man was accompanied on a screen by several of his ghost friends, so dress yourselves accordingly).
3. After you cut the shapes, lay them outside and spray paint them the appropriate colors. You may need more than one coat. Since this costume is so much wider than your body, paint both sides with as many coats as necessary for rich, deep color.
4. While the paint dries, work on making the eyes for the characters. Start by cutting large round circles of white construction paper or poster board.
5. Next, cut smaller black circles, as shown, for the pupils. (Note that Pac Man has smaller pupils than the ghosts relative to the size of the eye as a whole).
6. Once you have the circular pupil shape, cut a small wedge from it like a slice of pie.
7. Center the black pupils on the white of the eye. Adhere with glue and allow to dry.
8. When the large shapes are dry, bring them in and attach the eyes with glue. Allow them to dry completely.
9. Create a neck strap for your Pac Man or ghost costume with a lanyard. If you do not have a lanyard, a pet leash will provide just enough support to keep this lightweight costume comfortably in place. To attach the strap, first loop it around you neck. (Be sure that the loop is big enough to go back over your head.) Mark the desired length and remove the strap from your neck.
10. Knot the strap to the right length. If you have lanyard, it will probably not need to be adjusted.
11. Next, use packing tape or duct tape to secure the strap to the back of your character. Be sure to do so at the center of balance (not necessarily the center of the character) so that it will hang evenly.
12. Slip the costume back over your head and make any necessary adjustments.
