10 Halloween Costume Ideas For 2022

Can you believe that Halloween is just around the corner? Well, it totally is, and this year we are going to try to avoid the Halloween Eve panic of putting a last-minute costume together. Only to end up in a plaid button-down calling yourself a cowgirl, or putting on a set of whiskers and a triangle nose and calling yourself a cat. No judgment though. We’ve all been there. We just think you can do better!

From classic Halloween costumes to iconic pop-culture moments, check out all of the Halloween Costume inspo to have your spookiest (okay they really aren’t that spooky), Halloween yet!


We predict Barbie will be a hot Halloween costume choice this year thanks to the trending Barbiecore aesthetic. Pull out all the hot pink you own and your cutest pumps (or roller blades if you’re brave) – and maybe and maybe even an eligible Ken candidate by your side if you so wish. Then voila. Come on Barbie, let’s go party!

Mad Hatter

“A land was full of wonder, mystery, and danger. Some say, to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which, luckily, I am.” – Mad Hatter. 

It is just us, or does the Mad Hatter give off chic-clown vibes? Either way, you’ll need to tap into your inner maximalist to pull off this Halloween Costume! Find the largest and loud bow tie you can and you’re off to a great start. 

Julia Fox

Okay, here us out. Being a celeb for a night is a classic Halloween choice, and choosing a celebrity that is currently buzzing in pop culture, like Julia Fox, is just a fun time. Not to mention her look is iconic and Halloween is a great excuse to replicate it. The key to being recognizable as Julia Fox is definitely her intense black eye makeup. 

Black Swan

Become the Black Swan this Halloween for a costume that has just the right amount of cool and sexy combined! If you’re crafty you can make this costume on your own with the help of plenty of black feathers. You can even make this costume suitable for two with the help of a White Swan. We’ve searched the web and found a totally adorable set from PrettyLittleThing that would be so perfect to recreate your own Black Swan. The top and skirt are already decked out in feathers, and the gloves add a super chic touch. All you have to do is add the makeup. Plus, not only is it an awesome costume, you can definitely use the outfit again when you hit the town. We love the versatility!

Squid Game Contestant 

If you’re on the hunt for a Halloween costume that is ultra comfortable, you’re in luck! Becoming a Squid Games contestant basically just requires a green tracksuit with a number on it, and maybe throw some fake blood and dirt to make the look more authentic and you’re good to go. 

Harry Potter

A classic Halloween costume that will never lead you astray is Harry Potter, or pretty much any Harry Potter character. Best part? Put on a house robe and carry a wand and you’re any character you want! But, if you actually want to put some effort in, of course, there are a few differentiating factors between some characters. Harry Potter, the circle glasses and scar, duh. Hermoine, big hair. Luna, her super fun spectre specs. 


Arguably the creepiest of clowns is Pennywise, featured in the movie “It”. So, if you’re someone who actually likes to get down and spooky on Halloween, this costume is for you! Believe it or not, there are actually cute versions of this costume out there, too! If that’s more your style. 

Eleven – Stranger Things

If the latest Stranger Things season still has you losing sleep, you’re not alone. Let’s get justice for Eddy and destroy Vecna for good, as Eleven this Halloween! You can totally achieve Eleven’s look at home or via thrifting – in fact, we encourage it! Hunt out the best 80’s clothing you can find and put some fake blood under your nostril and you’re done.

Handmaid’s Tale

In honour of The Handmaid’s Tale’s new season coming out – why not be a Handmaid for Halloween? It’s a little dark and twisty, but hey, that’s what Halloween is all about! You have to admit… a Handmaid’s Tale Halloween party would be kind of epic (costume-wise). Get your red cloaks and white bonnets ready! 

Cruella Deville

Disney’s favourite villain. Or our favourite Disney villain, anyway. Cruella Deville! You can’t go wrong with this classic costume. Everyone will know who you are without a doubt. All you need is some black clothing with white accents and of course, the half and half wig. As you couldn’t possibly Cruella without her iconic half black half white hair.
