Halloween is upon us, and most people are still struggling to find a costume. If you’re looking for a costume slightly more appropriate than those typically marketed to collegiate women, here are some suggestions that don’t sacrifice cute for Grandma’s approval (she’s watching you on Facebook!).
1. Mary Poppins: This costume might require a trip to a vintage thrift store, but the costume would be totally worth it!
2. Inside Out characters
Decade diva: Choose a decade and run with it!
Broadway babe: Any of these characters would provide a unique and adorable outfit!
Darla from Finding Nemo
Pumpkin Spice Latte: Take a spin on the classic pumpkin costume by going in latte form!
The ladies from Avatar: The Last Airbender
A perfect throwback to childhood that will make your fellow party-goers nostalgic and jealous they hadn’t thought of it!
The Scooby Doo girls: Velma and Daphne are fairly easy to find clothes for, and they make the perfect couple costume for you and your bestie!
Kimmy Schmidt: Try being America’s favorite underground cult survivor from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!
Comic book character: These ladies are so fun and they’ll offer a unique make up challenge for you!
Disney villains: No need to be a princess again this year! Embrace your inner queen!
Minor Harry Potter characters: Who says you have to stick to a generic Hermione or Ginny costume? If you want a Harry Potter costume, but want to change it up a bit, choose one of the other characters!
Superheros and heroines: If your favorite hero is a man, there’s no reason you couldn’t make him a heroine for the night!
R2D2 from Star Wars: This R2D2 dress is adorable and very timely, given the new movie that’s coming out soon!
Wilson from Cast Away: Funny and easy to make, Wilson is a perfect last minute costume!
And finally… Damian from Mean Girls: All you need are sunglasses, a hoodie, and an attitude to rival Damian’s.
