45 Terrifyingly Awesome Halloween Costume Ideas

hello all,

Halloween’s just around the corn-maze corner, and if you’d stop eating pumpkin flavored foods for a second, you’d realize that you don’t have a costume picked out yet. Or you have a costume, but it’s not a good costume.

Scary, right?

I’m here to help. Freak out in style with one of these awesome ideas!

  1. Vampire Barbie: Plastic vampire teeth+Barbie’d out hair/makeup.
  2. Sweatpants Playboy Bunny: Bunny ears+sweatpants/sweatshirt.
  3. Future You: Wear a suit and draw wrinkles on your face. Or something.
  4. Past You: Did you have a bad teenage haircut? Do you want to relive your mistakes?
