This Group Of Friends Changed The Halloween Game With Their Coordinated Costumes

If your friends can't decide on one film, why not all of them?

For the past three years, this group of friends have coordinated their Halloween costumes.

This year, they decided to pay tribute to the late Robin Williams by all dressing up as his most celebrated film roles.

They're guaranteed to be the stand-out display of costumery at any Halloween party this year.

Since 2012, 28-year-old Auburn Salcedo, CEO of Presley Media from Nebraska, has joined up with her friends to coordinate Halloween outfits.

They all decide on one actor, and dress up as their most recognisable film roles. Salcedo posted the photos online and they've gone viral every year.

“We actually met 6 years ago when all seven of us worked together for a boss from hell,” Salcedo told BuzzFeed News.

"It was a crazy workplace experience. We all ended up bonding together so that we could make it through the daily grind." As a group, they quit and remained best friends ever since.

The group specifically choose actors who have had many iconic roles with distinguishable outfits and choosing which character each person can dress up as is a very careful affair for the group.

"Some of us will feel stronger about one costume in particular and will request that one; other times we know who picked last the year before and will let them pick first for the next year."

"We actually choose the next year's costume within 24 hours after posting our photos. We like to see what the crowd thinks should come next! The past couple of years we already had an idea of what we were going to do next, but we don't confirm it until we do our little post-costume pow-wow."

Who's the chosen actor for next year's Halloween costume? "We've decided", she replied. "However, we can't tell!"
