    One of my favorite things about Halloween is seeing well-executed group costumes. And finding the perfect base outfit — whether that's matching T-shirts, dresses, or something else entirely — is the best way to turn a good group costume into a great group costume.

    (^The spice girls! So clever!!)

    Well, I have good news: I recently found a $17 dress on Amazon that is the stuff group-costume dreams are made of!

    (P.S.: You can also grab those shark hats on Amazon for $12.59 each.)

    What makes it so great? Well, it boasts a few standout features:

    Taylor Miller / BuzzFeed

    • It comes in 12 different colors, meaning you can easily build group costumes where everyone wears the same color, or do a costume where you need similar outfits in a bunch of different colors (like, say, Skittles).

    • It's available in small through 5X, so people in a range of sizes can participate in the group costume. (A friend of mine who typically wears a size 24-26 tried on the 5X and reported back to me that it fit her.)

    • It looks really cute on! It's definitely ~flirty~, but you could wear it to a work Halloween party without fear of flashing everyone if you bend over.

    • It's $16.99 and Prime eligible. Can't beat that!

    We were all pleasantly surprised by the quality, especially given the price point.

    The dress fits really well, runs true to size, and the fabric is really soft and comfortable*! It's a little clingy around the tummy, so I found it useful to go up a size (I'm wearing a medium in these photos, and I'm 5'3", BTW); you could do the same, and/or wear tights under it for extra comfort.

    *One truly minor note: The black dresses and the white dresses are made from a slightly different fabric (93% cotton, 7% spandex) than the other colors (which are 95% rayon, 5% spandex). They are virtually identical, but the black and white dresses aren't quite as light/flowy as the other ones.

    Here are some other group costumes you could make using the dress...

    P.S.: If you end up making a costume using this dress, I'd love to see photos and/or feature it in a future BuzzFeed post!
