    1. A glow-in-the-dark skeleton bodysuit so you and your lazy bones can enjoy a spooky Halloween and still look great with minimal effort.,

    Promising review: "Huge hit!! It fit exactly how I wanted and everyone loved it. At first, I thought it may be a little too cartoony looking but I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this over the more real-looking skeletons. Would absolutely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $42+ (available in sizes S–XL).

    2. An inflatable wacky arm guy suit for fans of car dealerships and our dancing friends who reside outside of them. Plus, this costume comes with a built-in excuse for bad dancing. You're just "in character."

    One size fits most! The fan is built-in and requires four AA batteries — so pick those up for maximum wackiness.

    Promising review: "I laughed so hard at myself in the mirror. Took me a second to get comfortable in the neck hole part, but otherwise, best purchase ever." —Ashley Sanders

    Get it from Amazon for $55.95

    3. A whimsical Dr. Seuss tutu dress with a matching hat headband because where would this literary cat be without their hat?, Amazon

    Promising review: "Love it! Fits super comfortable and the material is great. The tops fits like a soft long-sleeved shirt. Only thing I would do differently is make the underskirt a little longer but some might like it short!" —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    4. A vibrant butterfly wing cape that can be tossed on over clothes you already own for a wow-worthy costume that has a great compliment-to-comfort ratio.

    It also includes a pretty black lace eye mask!

    Promising review: "I was excited to have these delivered today! I’ve been on the hunt for an easy Halloween costume (and not too pricey) so I could dress up when I take my kids around the neighborhood for Halloween. This fits the bill perfectly! The wings feel soft and nicely made. I love how flowy they feel when I walk too. Definitely looking forward to wearing this for Halloween! The mask is a nice bonus as well. I don’t love having things on my face but it’s soft and flexible so nothing to worry about." —Seashells

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in nine colors).

    5. A cozy Baby Yoda onesie if you're curious how you can successfully get away with attending a Halloween party in your pajamas.


    Promising review: "This is AWESOME. Probably not as thick as most people would like, but it is still incredibly warm. Everything else I’ve looked at had such an ugly Baby Yoda face but this is perfect!" —Jenn F.

    Get it from Amazon for $63.44+ (available in unisex sizes S–XXL).

    6. An Ash Ketchum Pokémon trainer costume to ensure your Halloween is filled with just the right amount of '90s nostalgia. Now, get out your Pokédex and catch all that candy!

    If you're between sizes opt for a size larger; some reviewers say it runs small. Set comes with a hat, vest, and gloves. Toss it on with the bottoms of your choice and you're good to go! 

    Promising review: "This costume is really well made for the price! I definitely recommend going up a size. I usually wear a medium, but followed some reviews with this and I ordered a large and it's a perfect fit. The length is right at the hip (meets where my jeans sit comfortably). The shirt just has one button closure, no zippers or anything. The inside is lined, the hat is adjustable and the stitching is really nice. The gloves are a little wonky, but wearable. I almost ordered from a different seller (who was also more expensive) but I'm so glad I found this one at the last minute. Came fast with Prime shipping too! Totally recommend." —Erin 

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in unisex sizes XS–XXXL). 

    7. A glittery Sims headband so you can wear literally whatever clothes you want, and people will still get it and probably try and yell Simlish at you from across the bar.

    Love, Caroline O / Etsy

    Love, Caroline O. is an Etsy shop best known for their beautiful and intricate headpieces, but they have too-cute clothing and accessories, too!

    Get it from Love, Caroline O. on Etsy for $34.50 (available in three colors; USPS Priority and Express Mail shipping upgrade available).

    8. An inflatable riding raptor costume for a dino-mite evolution of the dinosaur onesie you wore trick-or-treating when you were three., Amazon

    Just wear one of your own shirts, pick up four AA batteries, and you're good to go! One size fits most.

    Promising review: "This was a great costume. It was easy to wear and was told by many it was the best costume of the night. The batteries for the fan lasted longer than I expected as well for about five hours of constant running." —Rhianna Flaisman

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    9. An Average Joe's dodgeball uniform because if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge that dude you really hoped wouldn't be at this party.

    Promising review: "It runs a bit big. I was surprised with the overall construction; for the price, it was decently well made. I could see myself playing dodgeball or working out in this outfit and it would definitely hold up." —alec m stark

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in unisex sizes XS–XXL). 

    10. A DC comics Wonder Woman shirt with an attached cape and included headband that feels like your wearing a regular T-shirt but looks like you just saved a runaway train from disaster.

    a reviewer wearing the T-shirt and headband with black pants

    Promising review: "Got this and a Supergirl costume for a friend and myself. We really enjoyed wearing them and got lots of compliments. Wore it to a party before Halloween and also wore it to go around running errands and shopping on Halloween. We made a lot of people smile! The T-shirts are of nice quality. Halloween is over so we removed the cape and the Velcro strips on the shoulders of the shirts and wear it to go walking and to the gym. This is one costume that you can reuse anytime you want." —Jacques' Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XL). 

    11. A creepy clown dress if you like to stick to Halloween's spooky scary roots, and delight in freaking out your friends.


    Promising review: "Ordered for Halloween when I couldn’t find it in stores. Top is thin but not see-through and sleeves are sheer as pictured. The skirt is made of more durable material. All around a good buy." —Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $42.95+ (available in sizes XS–XL).

    12. An all-in-one Captain Marvel bodysuit so you can remind all the other Marvel superheroes out on Halloween who's boss. They protect Earth. You!? You protect the galaxy!

    For a tighter fit, reviewers recommend ordering a size down.

    Promising review: "This outfit is great quality fabric for the money. I've only tried it on (haven't worn it for an extended period yet), but it seems like it will last. It's stretchy so definitely order a size down from what you normally are, which is what I did based on other reviews. The sleeves even have thumb covers. The neck is loose enough that it won't make breathing difficult. The length was perfect for me and it fit everywhere else." —Nicole Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $42+ (available in sizes XS–L).

    13. A bumblebee costume to guarantee your Halloween fit is a buzz-worthy success.


    The costume includes the bee top and cap but not the leggings (use a pair you already have!) And one size fits most!

    Promising review: "I had a hard time believing that one size fits all, however, through adjustable sleeves one size really does fit all! The sides were a bit large and I had to wear an undershirt so my bra wasn't exposed. Also in order to get the puffy back end, it has to be worn pretty short and close to the butt so I wore legging underneath. Overall great, comfortable costume!" —Crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    14. A wild piñata jumpsuit for a look that's literally made for a party. Pro tip: keep candy in your pockets to throw at people if they touch you., Amazon

    Promising review: "Pricey but worth it. Very well made. Got tons of compliments. The hood stays up easily. Loved the zippered pockets; they easily fit an iPhone, glasses, credit cards, etc." —Sharon Hartmann

    Get it from Amazon for $89.95 (available in unisex sizes XS–L).

    15. A printed Jake from State Farm polo because all you have to do is supply your own khakis for you and your big insurance savings to become the life of the party.

    16. Or a Progressive Agent Flo accessories set that you can toss on with a T-shirt and jeans to instantly transform into everyone's favorite sassy insurance savant.


    Promising review: "Getting TONS of compliments on this costume today! PERFECT! I was afraid the wig would be of poor quality, but I was FAR from disappointed. Took it out of the packaging, brushed it out, and hung it up so it could relax for a few days prior to wearing it. I rarely dress up for Halloween but was invited to a function that required a costume this year. Have had a barrel of laughs with it, so far." —Jen G

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    17. A dazzling ringmaster costume with big The Greatest Showman energy if you love an excuse to wear a sparkly getup almost as much as you love being the star of the show.


    FYI — the whip is not included, but everything else in the picture is!

    Promising review: "Very nice quality costume. The colors are more vivid than the picture and I got tons of compliments. It fit me perfectly and I will definitely wear it again. The only downside was you had to assemble the hat but once I played around it came out fine." —Jacqueline Wier, Mrs.

    Get it from Amazon for $57.99+ (available in sizes XS–L).

    18. A nostalgic Crayola crayon set to add some much-needed color to this notoriously dark and dreary holiday.


    The undershirt and pants aren't included, so opt for whatever you already have (if anything). This also makes a great group costume — you can go as the whole crayon box!

    Promising review: "This costume was a hit at my last party! I added a blue wig and blue eye and lip makeup for added effect. Warning: the hat falls off pretty easy. You might want to consider adding a strap. I lost it many times going trick or treating with my 4-year-old. Luckily we were in a group and someone could always give me a shout that I lost my hat again." —Jennifer Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $24.25+ (available in unisex sizes S–XL and in six colors).

    19. A full Spiderman bodysuit so you can show up as everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood hero. I recommend coming up with some quippy one-liners if you really want to tune in to your spidey sense.

    Promising review: "I am extremely happy with this purchase. It fits very well and the quality for the price is amazing. I just can’t zip up the back by myself but I can always ask my friend or roommate to zip me up before I wear it out to a Halloween party. One small issue is using my phone while I have the suit on. It takes a couple times to click something on my screen while I have the suit on, but I might just buy something I can glue to the tip of my index finger to help. Other than that I am very excited to wear this for Halloween parties this year." —Carlos

    Get it from Amazon for $42.99 (available in men sizes S–XXXL).

    20. A jersey spiderweb dress for a trendy take on a Halloween classic that you can wear for many spooky seasons to come.

    Promising review: "It looks as pictured, it fit well, the fabric was good quality so I can get multiple costume party events out of it." —Patricia W. 

    Get it from Yandy for $29.95 (available in sizes 1X–4X; two-day and overnight shipping upgrades available). 

    21. A distinguished sea captain costume perfect if you're the friend screaming "I'm the captain now!" at all your drunk friends while you try and shepherd them home.


    This set is the jacket and hat, so pair it with whatever black pants you have hanging in your closet.

    Promising review: "Considering this costume includes the jacket, rope, medals, and hat, it is a great package for the price. The jacket is what you would expect for costume quality but plays the part." —GMoon

    Get it from Amazon for $35.87+ (available in two men's sizes).

    22. A two-piece Hooters uniform that manages to do what few sexy costumes can — be comfortable.,

    Promising review: "I usually don’t trust Amazon costumes for Halloween but these spandex were so comfy and stretchy! The shirt was thick and not see-through at all! This was a really good find and worth the money :)" —Alyssa Avicolli

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in sizes XS–3XL).

    23. A snuggly detective platypus onesie if you're still chasing the high of an after-school snack and an episode of Phineas and Ferb.


    Promising review: "I got this for Halloween and it was warm and perfect. A couple of weeks before Halloween I got sick with a stomach bug and this was very warm to wear while I was recovering. I would recommend this for all fans of Phineas and Ferb and it was a very good deal compared to other Halloween costumes." —Tatertot

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in unisex sizes S–XL).

    24. A fierce Batgirl costume to remind people that there's another cool superhero universe out there that doesn't begin with the letter M., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this costume for a work Halloween party. For the price, it was a great buy! It comes with the mask, dress, belt, cape, sleeves and boot covers! No need to buy anything else! I got all kinds of compliments and most importantly, it was comfortable. I would definitely recommend!" —Emmy Soto

    Get it from Amazon for $42.75+ (available in sizes XS–L).

    25. A striped referee leotard so you can call the shots all night long and have no one (except a gaggle of angry fans) question you.


    Get it from Yandy for $55.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in plus sizes 1X–4X; two-day and overnight shopping upgrades available).

    26. A cheeky hand sanitizer top for a topical costume that'll truly freak people out in a way ghosts and ghouls never could.


    Promising review: "Easy to wear. Wore it for a Halloween tennis match." —Elise G. Lauinger

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    27. And a ninja bodysuit that's one part sexy, one part edgy, and one part COVID-friendly with an included face mask.,

    Promising review: "I used tiny safety pins to hold the red fabric straps in place, otherwise they fall down. This was comfortable, looked great on, and was really sexy without being overly revealing. I wore it to my bartending job and wore a black tank top under as the bust area is pretty revealing, but I would have felt comfortable without the tank top had I been wearing it to a party or out for the night. Quality of fabric was better than I expected, and I had no issues after washing it." —Lnewbie76

    Get it from Amazon for $37.54+ (available in sizes S–4X).
