    1. A black widow midi for ensnaring your next victim.

    Get it from Asos in petite (00–12), regular (0–14), or tall (0–16) sizes.

    2. A Wednesday Addams classic that, tbh, you're going to wear over and over again during normal life, too.,

    Promising review: "Bought this dress for my Wednesday costume. Very skeptical but I loved it! I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs. and 34C bra size. I got a medium and it fits perfectly I could have bought the small because it was just a bit loose on the waist but at the end it still looked amazing! Oh and the material of the dress is stretchy and very nice not cheap at all! Definitely a dress a can wear to the office so I'll be using again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (sizes XS–2XL).

    3. A Ms. Frizzle lookalike as a lazy way to teach a lesson about the solar system. Or the effect of ethanol now that you found a DD for The Magic Schoolbus.

    Get it from Hot Topic for $39.92 (sizes S–XL).

    4. An angelic option in black or white so you can play it good or evil.

    Get it from Amazon for $17+ (two colors, sizes S–XL).

    5. A blue gem and its sister from another mister because it's damn time you make good on your annual threat to dress up as Romy and Michele with your BFF.

    Get them from Dolls Kill: $38 (left, sizes S–XL) and $38 (right, XS–L)

    6. A red collar dress as a very 2017 take on the girl with the ribbon tied around her neck.

    Yep, we're still fucked up over that story. OK, so the color of the ribbon varies. Sometimes it's red. Sometimes it's green. I'm team red, but the dress comes in multiple colors so you can find a hue in line with your beliefs.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (six colors, sizes S–XL).

    7. A zebra-print frock for being, well, a zebra. Duh.

    9. A Madeleine frock to cop the easygoing style of the ~original~ cool French girl.,

    Just add a ribbon and hat!

    Promising review: "I used the dress as apart of my Madeline costume, but it could be used for many things. After reading the reviews, I bought this dress a size up and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'3" and it hit right above my knee. Great product and I'll definitely re-wear!" —Aiden Smith

    13. A baseball tee in a million different colors so you can rep your favorite team — or make up one.

    14. And a football jersey begging to be personalized with numbers, team names, emojis, whatever.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (seven colors, sizes 4/6–20/22).

    15. A tiered number for some low-key Sofia Coppola Marie Antoinette vibes. And there's still plenty of room around the neckline to get gruesome if you want!
