Have you waited up until the last minute to get a Halloween costume this year? Well don’t fret, I’ve got you covered! Keep reading for some great costumes to use for this spooky holiday!

First, here’s some group/duo costumes!

  • Beanie Babies- It’s one of the easiest costumes on this list! Simply dress up as an animal and make the signature heart-shaped “ty” tag.
  • Cheetah Girls- In a group of four, get matching blue, purple, orange, and pink velvet tracksuits with some matching headbands!
  • Mean Girls- Find a Regina, Gretchen, Karen, and Kady and you’re covered! (Bonus: get someone to be Mrs.George)
  • Pacman- All you need is a few people dressed as the brightly colored ghosts and one big pacman to make this group costume.
  • Back to the Future- Whether you’re a girl or a boy, find the Doc to your Marty McFly and you’re good!

Dressing up solo this year? Maybe try some of these individual costume ideas!

  • Your favorite movie character- From movies, to TV shows, to books, think of a character that you love and can dress up as. You can even be creative and try adding your own personal touches to it!
  • Any athlete/sports- Simply throw on a jersey or uniform and you’re all set! 
  • Decades- This costume could possibly be a 70s hipster, 20s flapper, 50s greaser, or an 80s workout instructor, and is easy to do at home!
  • An Animal- Just grab some makeup and animal print to be whatever animal is easiest for you! This could include a deer, lion, dog, bunny, or whatever other animal you may want to do. 
  • A Vine/meme- Lastly, and certainly not least, my personal favorite idea would be to do a meme or famous vine! There’s plenty to choose from and most require minimal effort!

There you have it folks, 10 spooky ensembles for both individuals and groups!
