It’s officially October, which means Halloween planning is in full swing. We all want to look great for the big day, but we also don’t want to drop our entire paychecks on a costume. So, after spending some time on the internet, I have rounded up 5 perfect customers that don’t break the bank- and that you can order on Amazon. If you’re like me and never know what to be and usually end up deciding too late, here are some ideas that hopefully inspire you! Btw, all these items are through prime, so they’ll (hopefully) get to you quickly! 

1. Fairy 

It seems like a lot of people are embracing a mystical theme this Halloween. Fairies are a great individual or group costume because there are lots of different color and outfit variations. Below I have linked some items that would be perfect for a fairy outfit! 

2. Hippie 

A hippie is a great costume because you can usually style it with pieces you might already have. And, if you have to buy new accessories, you can use them after. For this costume, I would wear a white tank top and really allow the accessories to shine. Here are some suggestions: 

3. Mermaid  

I was a mermaid last Halloween and I got so many compliments on my costume. My favorite part were the starfish clips I found for my hair, and luckily, I got the whole costume on amazon. I also added plenty of glitter to my hair and makeup. Here is what I ordered: 

4. Cavewoman 

A cavewoman is another great costume because you can wear the pieces even after Halloween is over. A couple of my friends were cavewomen last year and their costumes came out amazing! If you don’t want to wear a 2 piece cheetah outfit, you can always wear a black top with a cheetah print bottom. I linked some items below that I think would look great for a cavewoman costume! 

5. Mummy 

I have seen so many cute mummy costumes over the years. From watching a couple of DIY videos, all you need is some gauze and a white dress or 2 piece outfit. After putting on your outfit, you wrap the gauze around yourself and it’s supposed to stick to itself. There are so many cool ways to accessorize this costume! 

Hopefully, this list of costumes gives you some ideas about what you want to be this Halloween. Of course, these are just suggestions- feel free to adapt the outfits however you please. The most important thing about picking out a costume is that you feel confident- so choose the outfit that makes you happiest. That’s all that matters in the end!
