What Your Halloween Costume Should Be Based On Your Zodiac Sign

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Brighton chapter.

Do you let the stars determine your fate? Are you still not sure what you should be for Halloween this year? Then look no further! For this spooky season, I have compiled a list of what you should dress as this Halloween based on your Zodiac sign because, let’s face it, what better way to turn up to your Halloween party this year than to be dressed up as a similar character to you? So, without further ado, read on to find your Zodiac twin for your Spooktacular event!

Aries (March 21st – april 19th) – Captain marvel

Aries tend to be ambitious, adventurous, fiery, and assertive. Who better to represent this fearless sign than Captain Marvel? – A fierce, strong character who is highly observant and driven. You can dress this one up or down, either going for Carol Danvers more casual look of a black trucker jacket, grey cap and tee, or you can buy the full Captain Marvel costume here.

taurus (april 20th – may 20th) – katniss everdeen

As a Taurus, loyalty is one of the top traits, and they are incredibly devoted to those they love. Katniss Everdeen embodies this Zodiac sign, as she is known as a down-to-earth and determined character who would do anything for those she cares about. So, get ready to turn up to your Halloween party as the Mockingjay herself, with various Katniss Everdeen outfits to choose from. My personal favourite is Katniss’s signature black outfit with the bow and arrow, which you can get from here.

Gemini (may 21st – June 20th) – Harley Quinn

As a Gemini who has watched all of the Suicide Squad movies, Harley Quinn is the first character who came to mind for this sign. Harley is indecisive, passionate, and inconsistent – much like myself. Plus, any excuse to dye your hair for Halloween is fun – and a great way to win a Halloween costume party.

Cancer (june 21st – July 22nd) – A PRINCESS

Cancers are described as the sweetest sign, cheerful and extremely welcoming. While each Disney princess has their own story and personality traits that set them apart, there is no denying that they all fit the above characteristics of a Cancer. So, lucky for the Cancers reading this article, you can pick whichever Disney princess you want to dress up as.

leo (July 23rd – august 22nd) – Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen is a strong, driven, and confident leader, representing a Leo’s traits. With the Mother of Dragons mirroring the fiery sign of Leo, you’d for sure feel the room light up in your presence – just make sure you don’t let the power consume you (wink, wink!) Daenerys had many iconic outfits throughout the series, but her beautiful blue dress has got to be the go-to look for Leos this Halloween.


It is no shock that Hermione Granger has been put here for Virgo! As a Virgo, they are practical and analytical, with an eye for detail and precision in everything they do! So, Virgos, grab your wand here and prepare your spells for a magical night ahead this Halloween!


Libras are fair, balanced, but most importantly, social butterflies who tend to be shopping addicts! As if anyone else would be better suited to being a Libra than Cher! My personal favourite of Cher’s looks is the iconic plaid suit which you can pull off this Halloween.

sCORPIO (october 23rd – november 21st) – MALEFICENT

Maleficent is misunderstood. A very assertive, loyal, and sincere character, with intense emotions who deep down, is very sensitive. Matching the traits of a Scorpio – this costume will not be complete without the drastically long cloak you can get here and a deep red lipstick!

sagittarius (november 22nd – december 21st) – a witch

Witches are known to be brave, spontaneous, wildly unpredictable, and adventurous. The perfect costume for a Sagittarius. Who better to take witchy inspiration from than Sabrina Spellman from the 90s show “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”, by wearing an iconic long black dress for your spooky event this October!


As a Capricorn, you are known to be practical, self-reliant, a team player and ambitious. So, Capricorns, brace yourself to chase the ghosts of your past this Halloween as a new member of the Ghostbusters! Grab yourself a ghostbuster costume here.

aQUARIUS (jANUARY 20TH – february 18th) – a vampire

Aquarius’s are known for being mysterious, honest, and extremely curious. As an air sign, Aquarius are also extremely friendly. The above characteristics make Aquarius’ relate to the traits of a vampire! Especially Alice Cullen from Twilight, as like Aquarius’ Alice Cullen is very intuitive.

pisces (february 19th – march 20th) – a mermaid

Mermaids are incredibly creative, empathetic and possess psychic abilities, which makes them relate to the traits of a Pisces. As Pisces are part of the water signs, their emotions are full of depth as they are very sensitive and compassionate. As a water sign, mermaid costumes are fitting and best suited to a Pisces; you can get your mermaid costume here.

I hope this article spoke to all of my fellow horoscope lovers and helped you to your perfect Halloween costume this year – I witch you all a happy Halloween!
