When a best friend joins the fun, anything you’re doing becomes twice as fun. But no duo can compare to a gang of seven besties. At least when it comes to Halloween group costumes. Meet Auburn Salcedo and her friends.
Everything began eight years ago when all seven of them were hired for a job in advertising. “It was a totally hellish experience and we ended up bonding so that we could make it through the day-to-day craziness,” Salcedo told BuzzFeed. “We all quit within two weeks of each other and have been best friends ever since!”
“Our first group costume was zombie pageant queens; all the costumes for women at the time were hyper-sexualized and not incredibly interesting,” Salcedo added. “We came up with the seven Johnny Depps the following year, and it was so well-received at our annual Halloween party that we kinda just knew we had something.”
