As soon as October hits, everyone’s mind goes to one thing: Halloween. The holiday is always loads of fun, but sometimes costumes can be a source of stress. In the weeks leading up to parties we all think to ourselves: “What should I wear? I want to be creative, but I don’t know what to do? Ugh, should I just be a cat again?”

However, this spooky season, we’re going to give ‘em pumpkin to talk about with the best (and most creative) costumes for this upcoming Halloween, separated by characters and people, group costumes and timeless classics. 



The list of characters people can dress as is endless, but some fresh and notorious favorites include Brittany Spears, Wonderwoman, Wednesday Addams, Ashley O from “Black Mirror,” Kim Possible, Harley Quinn from “Suicide Squad,” Jackie Burkhart from “That 70’s Show,” Cleopatra, Marilyn Monroe, characters from the movie “Grease,” Audrey Hepburn, Barbies or Bratz dolls, Ariana Grande and Vivian Ward from “Pretty Woman.”
