What Should I Be for Halloween?

We’re counting down the days until one of the most exciting holidays of the year! It’s once again time for an epic Halloween party with club-style DJs, over-the-top costumes, and nonstop dancing. 

You’re probably here because you don’t have an answer to this question yet: What should I be for Halloween? Well, we’ve made a quiz to help you decide which of the hottest 2023 costumes best matches your personality. Whether you’re a fun, fearless type or a reserved, shy individual, you can find the best ideas here. 

Question 1: What’s Your Goal When Choosing a Costume?

Scary costume, please!

Something comfortable.

Scary Costume

If you like scary costumes, try attending the party as Michael Myers of Halloween. 

With the recent release of Halloween Kills, this character has once again reminded horror movie fans why he is one the scariest characters of all time. He first made an on-screen appearance in 1978 as a fictional character and has graced many Halloween parties since then. 

You’ll need a mask, coverall, work boots, and a lot of attitude to complete this look. 

Comfortable Ensemble

Here’s a comfortable ensemble idea: Dance the night away as a Squid Game contestant! 

The show has provided Halloween fans with a priceless gift — easy-to-replicate costumes perfect for the occasion. Whether you feel like being Gi-Hun (456), Sang Woo (218), or Sae-Byeok (067) for a night, all you need is a green-and-white tracksuit, white shirt, and white sneakers. 

Question 2: What Do You Like Best About Halloween?

Giving away candy.

Visiting spooky places.

Sweet Treat

Are you the sweet one in the group? Show off your sweet side by being an M&M, one of America’s most loved chocolate treats since 1941. There are many ways to go about the costume, but our favorite is the classic colored m shirt with matching socks paired with a black skirt. 

Traditional Halloween Lover

You obviously love Halloween because of the fun traditions associated with it. Why not go for a classic this year, like a devil? It’s always fun to dress up as a devil because as long as you have a hairband and a pitchfork accessory, you can pull off any look. For best results, stick to the typical red-and-black ensemble. 

Question 3: Would You Rather Be a Hero or a Villain?

Hero costume, definitely.

Villain, of course!

Hero for a Day

Feeling like a hero? Then show up to Coloween as Halloween Wanda Maximoff in WandaVision! The show premiered in January of this year, which means nobody got to wear the iconic costume last year. Score an all-red ensemble with the following to pull off this look: bodysuit, cape, headpiece, gloves, and thigh-high boots.  

Chillin Like a Villain

Another famous release earlier this year gave us serious costume inspo — Cruella de Vil. Disney introduced her in 1956 as the villainess of The Hundred and One Dalmatians, and she remains one of the most notable characters to this day. The best part about playing Cruella is that there are many ways to interpret her costume — just don’t forget the iconic wig. 

Question 4: Are You Going Solo or With Your Partner?

Going solo this year.

With my partner — we’re inseparable.

Single Is Sexy

Enjoying the single life? Why not show the world who’s the boss with a strong character like Harley Quinn? After her Joker phase, she grew into her own character. As colorful as her life is, DC confirms this certified femme fatale is a hero. We love how her costumes evolved with her personality. Check out this Harley Quinn costume guide to view some of her latest looks.  

Power Couple

There’s no Hollywood couple right now who’s sexier than Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. They became Instagram official in July 2020, but we still can’t get enough of their style. While we’ve seen them rock sensational outfits, we especially love their 2021 VMAs getup. Megan’s naked dress and MGK’s red ensemble could surely win awards in the costume department. 

Question 5: How Much Time Can You Spend on Your Costume?

Not much.

As long as I need.

Quick Outfit

If you still don’t have a Halloween costume in mind, why not go for an easy Britney Spears look? After all, she was just freed from her conservatorship a few weeks ago. One of our all-time favorites is Britney’s Baby One More Time attire. You can pull off the sexy student look with items you probably already have in your closet: a blouse, cardigan, mini skirt, thigh-high socks, and leather shoes. Don’t forget the scrunchies to complete your look!

Elaborate Getup

If you have time to achieve a detailed costume, why not go as Cassie from Promising Young Woman? The movie was released last December, so it’s the first time people have the chance to pay tribute to the character. The final scene makes for a playfully dark costume. You’ll need a sexy nurse outfit, rainbow wig, and a few fun nurse accessories to achieve Cassie’s look.
