Updated July 19, 2017

Triple your impact at this year's Halloween party by dressing up as a threesome with your friends. When it comes to finding fresh ideas for Halloween costumes, engaging in a theme that others can join in with will make light work of choosing a party outfit. Create costumes of famous threesomes using the world of horror as your inspiration, but don't feel that you have to adhere to the rules too strictly.

Classic horror trio

It's hard to believe that some of the classic horror movie names of our past, such as Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and the werewolf, have been with us for over 80 years. This timeless horror trio are easy to replicate and can be a fantastic idea for an old school threesome. A second-hand dinner suit and home-made black cape alongside slicked-back hair and fake fangs can make a simple yet effective Dracula. The tallest member of the group can wear black trousers and jacket with heavy boots and neck bolts purchased from a joke store to portray Frankenstein's monster. Buy a werewolf mask and wear it with old, torn clothes that highlight the strains of metamorphosis to complete the concept.

Modern horror trilogy

For something more contemporary, consider the effect of super-sinister characters from the recent ages of cinema. Consider using the principal characters from "Friday the 13th", "Halloween" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street". As scary as they are on their own, a combination of the three are sure to get pulses racing. Wear dark clothing with white face powder and black circles around the eyes to achieve a Michael Myers costume. Buy a Jason Voorhees-style legendary hockey mask from any leading sports supplier and use a fake knife for that crazed slasher look. Wear an old, coloured striped jumper and fake hands, which are available at joke shops or fancy dress stores, to produce the perfect Freddy Krueger.

Fairy tales

Enjoy the thrill of dressing up as characters from the realms of childhood memory by adopting a timeless threesome from the world of fairy tales. Use blue dungarees and some stuffing to produce a rounded effect for a three little pigs trio. Complete the look with pig masks or comedy noses from fancy dress outlets. Consider dressing up as the three bears using costumes hired from a fancy dress store. Invite a female friend who is attending the party on her own to complement the threesome by dressing up as Goldilocks.

Female superheroes

Consider the use of female superhero costumes if you are going to be part of a group of girls attending the party. Get pulses racing with a tight leather catsuit and a mysterious feline face mask for a Catwoman costume. Use camouflage shorts and a matching T-shirt with boots and thigh straps to create an impressive Lara Croft. Fulfil the desires of every man at the party by donning the patriotic colours of Wonder Woman and finish the look with a gold tiara and a length of golden braid.
