Halloween Costume Inspiration

Whether you’re genuinely enthusiastic about Halloween or are just being coaxed into celebrating by “friends,” the rules for dressing up are the same: you have to commit to it. We say: If you’re going to put on a costume, best jump all in and find a cool one, because there’s nothing more disappointing than having people giving you weird looks at the bar because they don’t realize that your half-assed costume is just that — a costume.

So this Halloween, don’t take yourself too seriously and put on those neon tights or celebrity wear. In any case, an interesting costume — DYI or pre-prepared — is guaranteed to be a good icebreaker and the source of a few good conversations. And, worst-case scenario, you’ll wind up with a bag of candy all to yourself at the end of the night.

To help you on your quest to find the right costume, here are the easiest, cheapest and coolest Halloween Costumes we could find this year. Proceed with caution — spooky content ahead.
