These 'American Horror Story' Group Costume Ideas Are Much Easier Than You Realize


There isn't a show out there quite like American Horror Story, especially when it comes to Halloween inspo. The spooky anthology series has introduced so many creepy characters over its eight seasons that it's become hard to keep track of every player and their wicked ways. From witches to clowns to two-headed sideshow performers, the dress-up possibilities are seemingly endless. If you're looking for American Horror Story group costume ideas, channeling your fave character combos from the series is probably easier than you think.

If AHS had a signature motto regarding its style, it would probably be: "Nothing is off limits." The show isn't afraid to take risks in the fashion department, even when they appear to make no sense. Wigs are just as essential to the series as making people scream. The outfits are out there. The masks are usually terrifying. I can't imagine AHS without its unique costume design. The clothes help make the show! There was even a museum exhibit at the Paley Center devoted to showcasing the series' unforgettable wardrobe. Want to craft some of the most memorable looks from the show's current season this Halloween? Grab your own personal coven and make the magic happen.

Despite their demises, three of Apocalypse's Outpost 3 participants do not appear to be going anywhere for good any time soon. Although much of their true selves are still shrouded in mystery, their outward appearances aren't too difficult to pin down. While "purples" Dinah and Coco are afforded opulant gowns, Mallory rocks a grey pinafore and her statement glasses. Just make sure to do their over-the-top hairdos justice.

The witches are back! Madison (Emma Roberts), Cordelia (Sarah Paulson), and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) have found their way back to AHS for this season's crossover extravaganza. Pro tip when trying to capture Coven's essence: capes are your friend and black is the new black. These ladies aren't into prints. Accessorize with umbrellas for nostalgia's sake if you're going for a Season 3 Coven throwback. If it rains, you'll be prepared.

If you want to add Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) into the 2018 Halloween mix, I don't blame you. The luscious-locked Cooperative agent is at the center of Apocalypse. He's got a polished look that can only be described as satanic glam. Ms. Venable, also portrayed by Sarah Paulson, had a buttoned-up Victorian thing going on. The robotic Ms. Mead (Kathy Bates) kept things pretty simple.

Happy haunting, everyone!
