Round Up Your Friends For This Year's Best Group Costume: HBO's Girls

September 25, 2012

Sex and the City was created during the 90’s era of excess and showcased the glamorous, albeit unrealistic, lifestyles of four NYC women. But this year, HBO birthed a new friends-in-the-city show that will officially take its place come Halloween: Girls. Yep, that’s right, we’re going to show you how to create a Girls Halloween costume–and dare we say it’s one of the best group costumes of 2012. In director Lena Dunham’s world, Brooklyn replaces Manhattan, plaids and cords replace Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo, and grit replaces excess. The show’s quirky heroines – Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, and Shoshanna – stumble through New York in a post-college daze, navigating relatable problems (like, “I need a job!”) and cringe-worthy moments (like, “My boyfriend just peed on me!”).

Okay, that last one may be a SATC nod, but all in all, this Emmy nominated show was totally refreshing and awesome. Which makes it perfect for your all-girls costume. Don your plaids for Hannah, your prim sheath dresses for Marnie, your bows-a-plenty for Shosh and your hippie best for Jessa. And may we suggest a Bushwick warehouse party for Halloween night?

Don’t forget to shop more creative Halloween costumes of the year such as Megan Draper, Gangnam style, and Katniss of the Hunger Games.
