    1. A yellow raincoat that, when accessorized with the right stuff, isn't just one Halloween costumes — it's two! Pair it with a blue wig à la Coraline Jones or with a red balloon to channel Georgie from It.,

    Promising review: "I bought this for a Coraline costume that I have yet to do. I have, however, used it on rainy days and it is excellent for its intended purpose. It is quite large (and warm) as other reviewers have said, but I don't mind that. It's held up very well and I'd definitely buy it again." —Arose M.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in sizes M–XXXL).

    2. A spandex bodysuit most likely sourced from Roswell, New Mexico. This other-worldly 'fit requires no accessories whatsoever, aka you can consider this a one-and-done that won't have you racking up wigs, bows, masks, and more to your cart.

    Promising review: "I wore this to a Halloween drive in event while I was working as the videographer filming the event. Everyone loved my costume and all night people would burst into laughter or tell me they wanted one. This is easily the best $60 ever spent. The batteries lasted for hours and inflation only takes a minute or less." —Jacob D. 

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95 (one size fits some). 

    5. A sequin flapper dress stolen from the closet of Daisy Buchanan herself. Pair this with some pearls and you'll be on your way to ruining the life of a man named Gatsby.,

    7. A set of Pikachu ears and a tail ideal for folks who considered "Gotta Catch 'Em All" the theme song of their childhood. Pair this with a yellow dress and voila, your status of Pokémon Master is all but guaranteed.,

    If you want your bestie or partner to dress up as Ash Ketchum, just grab this accessory kit. And don't forget your Pokéball!

    Promising review: "Headband was perfect and nicely stuffed. Stayed put all night. The tail is bigger than I expected, but I'm so glad because it ended up looking better for the costume. I had to put a couple loose stitches at the base of the tail to attach it to my dress, and the top of the tail I just attached to my zipper using the safety pin it comes with. All-in-all, took two minutes and stayed put all evening, upright and fully stuffed. If you are worried it's a child size and aren't sure, just order it because it's fine and can totally fit an adult female head size." —asamimakes

    Get it from Amazon for $23.49.

    10. A horn headpiece you can pair with one of the (dozens) of black dresses in your closet and become the Mistress of Evil herself, Maleficent. Then, simply contour the crap out of your cheekbones and you'll be voted best dressed in no time.,

    Promising review: "Awesome headpiece! I was very skeptical about purchasing this item for my Maleficent costume, but I was super impressed by it! It does have a bit of a strong smell, but it went away quickly after taking it out of the bag. The fit is perfect, and the horns stand up perfectly. I am really looking forward to seeing the whole costume come together." —Somer Zvolensky

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99

    14. A bat costume made from a delightfully cozy material that would make even your fleece rubber duck pajama bottoms feel uncomfortable in comparison.,

    Promising review: "I ordered a size up after reading reviews. I love this costume. It is incredibly warm and indeed cozy. While it seems to be made just out of cheap felt or fleece, it still is very warm. I had some loose strings that were easy to cut. I wore this costume with a long-sleeved black shirt underneath, fleece-lined leggings, and black boots." —Mika

    Get it from Amazon for $23.40+ (available in sizes XS–6X).

    15. A retro poodle skirt dress to have you feeling like an extra on the set of the original Grease featuring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John (not the subpar 2016 remake that aired on Fox, people).,

    Promising review: "I love it! I got this dress for a school social that I'm chaperoning. It's very good quality for a costume. It does need to be ironed, but the material is a bit stretchy. I usually ware a size 12/L, but the other reviews say it runs small, so I bought a 2XL. It fit perfect. I highly recommend adding a petticoat to add some poof. The belt and scarf are also nice." —D. Meemers

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four colors). 

    21. A three-piece costume that'll make your Hauntober more ~bewitching~ than ever before. I'm not sure what she's up to these days, but this strikes me as something a present-day Marnie (cc Halloweentown) would wear.,

    Promising review: "This is adorable. You need a short black petticoat underneath for the fullness in the picture, though. It looks great in person, and I have gotten a lot of compliments. The sleeves are perfectly puffed." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X).
