Group costumes are the very soul of Halloween.

Group costumes are always awkward, though, because someone gets to be the cool main character while everyone else in the group has to dress up as the side characters who nobody remembers. But one gang of friends found a way around the group costume dilemma: they base their costumes around an actor's iconic characters instead.

So far the group has covered Bill Murray, Robin Williams, Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey, and Will Ferrell. 

This year, the they outdid themselves by dressing up as seminal Tom Hanks characters. From Woody from Toy Story to David S. Pumpkins from the Saturday Night Live haunted elevator skit, the group covered seven versions of America's dad.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate that they were able to not only stay close friends, but also coordinate outfits for the past six years? 

The seven friends coordinated costumes every year except for 2017. But as OP said, "No one gives a frick about 2017."

Comment from discussion aubra_cadabra's comment from discussion "Every year my girlfriends and I dress-up as different actors for Halloween and here's every year in one image. (I was told this is better suited for r/funny instead of r/pics!)".

They're already taking suggestions for 2019's group costume.
