15 Best Friend Halloween Costumes for 2017

Your dynamic duo needs something super current for this year’s Halloween parties. After all, the most important thing about wearing your costume is getting recognized, right? Here are some up-to-date costumes for you and your bestie that will be a hit at every Halloween party. 

1. Betty and Veronica from Riverdale

These girls may look like frenemies, but they quickly moved past the drama to become BFFs. Dress in some Riverdale High gear or one of the girls’ signature outfits, and get ready to go out with your best friend.

2. Sir and Rumi Carter

So maybe you don’t even know what Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s babies look like. Actually, nobody really does. But since they were born, people just can’t wait for them to grow up! Get creative and go out as the Carter twins if you really want to turn heads. But don’t get too caught up on who gets to be Sir and who gets to be Rumi—they probably look pretty much the same.

3. Evie and Mal from Descendants 2

These two ~evil~ ladies are the daughters of villains, but they are so sweet to each other. No matter what they go through at Auradon Prep, these roommates only get closer together—they’re practically sisters! If you and your bestie can relate, pop on some purple and blue wigs to stand out this Halloween.

4. Rick and Morty from Rick and Morty

If you haven’t heard of Rick and Morty by now, you haven’t talked to anyone about TV shows lately. With such a large fan base, everyone will be sure to recognize you and your best friend at any Halloween function. Put on a lab coat and spike your hair to be like Rick, and let your friend dress in little boy clothes to be just like Morty. 

5. Finn and Jake from Adventure Time

The song literally says “c’mon grab your friends!” Finn and Jake are the classic duo; they go on adventures together, live together and basically can’t live without each other. Even though Jake is a dog, he still makes for a pretty cute costume. DIY it. Optional: dress up as the female versions—Fiona and Cake.

6. Prince George and Princess Charlotte

George is only four years old and Charlotte only two, but these are the two most fashionable kids of the celebrity world. Go the cute route and join the royal family by pulling the preppiest pieces out of your closet. You may not get the special royal treatment that they do, but you will definitely turn a lot of heads as the kids of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

7. Violet and Klaus from A Series of Unfortunate Events

You may have seen the original movie or read the books (and been afraid of Count Olaf ever since), but this show is even more relevant now that the Netflix reboot has gained popularity. Violet and Klaus are introduced with even more detail, so watch a few episodes before putting together your look.

8. Madeline and Celeste from Big Little Lies

Don’t miss out on a chance to dress as fabulously as Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman! These on-screen best friends have some of the most heartfelt moments, just like you and your friends do in real life. Plus, Big Little Lies is an Emmy-winning show with a huge following. Any excuse to wear LOFT business attire is a win in my book.

9. Sansa and Daenerys from Game of Thrones

To the best friends who are total opposites, this one’s for you. Sansa, as you may already know, is a young Lady of the North, who’s so beautiful and naive that you can’t not like her. Dany, however, is a queen—immune to heat, rider of dragons. She is fierce. Sansa does have her fierce moments, so either personality type is bound to fit one of your friends. The costume opportunities are endless, especially if you get a wig for Dany’s beautiful white hair. 

10. New Taylor Swift and Old Taylor Swift

The “Look What You Made Me Do” video is legendary, whether you like it or not. If you want to make fun of Taylor Swift or show your appreciation for the pop singer, this series of costumes is perfect. Your BFF could be “You Belong With Me” Taylor or the “Bad Blood” Taylor. You could be by her side as VMAs Taylor or Met Gala Taylor! 

11. Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods

Kylie and Jordyn are known for their matching outfits, BFF moments on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and fantastic Instagram pics. You’ll have to get a little creative trying to recreate their expensive outfits, though.

12. Beyoncé and Solange Knowles

You and your sister from another mister are going to rock Halloween in these outfits. Beyoncé and Solange have supported each other as kids, sung together and even attended each other’s concerts. Look to one of their Grammy outfits or the Coachella picture for outfit inspo. You can’t go wrong with a little Knowles style.

13. DJ Khaled and Asahd 

The kings of matching outfits! Since the day Asahd was born, DJ Khaled has been calling his son his best friend. He takes the little guy everywhere—even to award shows. Put together some nice suits, glue on a beard and find some headphones for baby Asahd’s ears. 

14. Ruth and Debbie from GLOW

These gorgeous ladies of wrestling have some on-screen best friend drama that you won’t want to miss. This might be the most fun costume, as you don a colorful bodysuit and break out the hairspray for some seriously ’80s hair.

15. Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei from Fifth Harmony

Although there are four girls in this group, everyone is talking about Lauren and Normani. Fans even call them Laurmani for short. Their closeness is obvious and their fierceness is hard to miss. If you feel this close to your bestie, this is the perfect Halloween getup for you.
