    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    3. A lace poncho you can wear if the thought of wearing a full-on costume all night is a little daunting... or haunting, if you will.


    Promising review: "This is even better in person. It's the perfect, simple costume. I wore it to work because it’s simple yet nice. I wore black underneath so the design would stand out and I got so many compliments. It’s perfect and I’m so glad I bought it." β€”Nazcarmom

    13. An inflatable costume β€” your throat's gonna be ~horse~ at the end of the night after everyone wants to stop and talk to you about your incredible attire.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife because she likes unicorns. She really loves it and said this is what she wanted for her Halloween costume. She tried it on and showed our family. She had much fun, got lots of compliments, and can't wait to wear for Halloween!" β€”Malissa Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    14. A retro poodle skirt dress β€” a timeless Halloween pick that's sure to look anything but poodull.,

    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." β€”D. Meemers

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in five colors and sizes S–XXL).

    15. A hilarious graphic tee that'll be an easy costume to help you connect with those TikTok teens, even if you don't understand what you're wearing.


    I'm doing a VSCO girl theme for my neighborhood trunk or treat. After getting turtle stickers for my Hydro Flask and tons of scrunchies to hand out, I got this shirt to complete the look. Gotta take advantage of a fad while it lasts!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three styles, five colors, and sizes S–3XL).

    16. A pair of butterfly wings for anyone who is ~bugged~ by people who don't wear costumes to costume parties.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE IT! If you are looking for a fun Halloween cape that is light weight and fun without breaking the bank then buy this one! This is so much fun. It's as light as scarf material and looks very cute, not tacky. You can dress it up or down. I have several Halloween functions where something like this is fun but not over the top. This was just what I was looking for. It has elastic finger holders. I can dance in this as well. I was pleasantly surprised and I'm glad I purchased it." β€”LegoMom

    Get them from Amazon for $14.88 (available in 25 colors).

    17. A Wonder Woman blanket you can toss on yourself to stay super warm when the chilly October weather is not working with your mini skirt and kitten ear costume combo.


    Promising review: "This thing is great fun! I actually ordered it to wear as a Halloween costume because we dress up as a family every year and it is NOT easy to find a modest costume, especially for plus sizes! For the sake of wearing it around the house as a blanket, it is great. It isn't heavy, which is fine with me as I don't want to wear something around the house that is heavy. It is, however, verrrry long! Unless you are pretty tall, you're going to be lifting the bottom and carrying it so you don't trip. Same with use as a costume but totally worth it for the fun we had! For sitting/lying around, it's great! Plus my little boy said, 'Mommy, you look awesome!!' :) There is no better review!" β€”Danielle B.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.43 (available in six styles).

    18. A framed Mona Lisa so you can have a truly picture perfect costume at your friend's rather competitive costume party.,

    Promising review: "My son insisted that he wanted to be Leonardo Da Vinci for halloween and when we were looking online for that costume we came across this and he pleaded that I be the 'Mama Lisa.' We made a great pair. The costume is well made and was not as uncomfortable, as I thought it would be. It is is sure to be a hit at a party." β€”D.M. Andolfi

    Get it from Amazon for $27.25.

    19. A batwing dress that'll be a subtle and sensational way to celebrate this holiday at the office.


    Promising review: "This is made with a good, thick material. It's a comfy and easy costume for an office costume party or any other Halloween gathering. I'm all about the comfort in costumes." β€”Chinadoll8866

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 4–22).

    20. Or a jack-o'-lantern dress for any punk-in who doesn't want to wear a costume.


    Promising review: "This made for a perfect Halloween outfit because I didn't want to go all out with a costume this year. I thought the cut was cute and flirty without giving too much exposure. The dress is made well enough that I can wash and reuse it next year if I want to. Using the size chart the fit was exactly as expected." β€”A. F.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95+ (available in four styles S–4X).

    21. An Edna Mode costume sure to delight any fans of The Incredibles. Unfortunately, this outfit comes with NO CAPES.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–XL).

    22. Or a high collar vampire cape that'll be the piece you need if you think going out on Halloween without a cape ~sucks~.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful sheer cape. The collar stands up well." β€”Indiana

    Get it from Spirit Halloween for $21.99.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect costume for Halloween! It's high quality, stretches enough for your comfort, and looks absolutely stunning! Not only is the price cheap but it also shipped incredibly fast and fits perfectly. I highly suggest this product. It's so comfortable that I'll continue wearing it, whether it's Halloween or not. :)" β€”Natalysm

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 11 styles and sizes S–XL).

    24. An inflatable tube person for anyone who has always dreamed of being a car dealership for Halloween.


    Promising review: "I’ve never enjoyed a costume as much as I’ve enjoyed this one. It fit great and everyone loved it. My neighbor made a joke from afar asking if I do this often and I was like 'Every day' with the most serious face I could make thru the blurry mouth hole. My life is complete." β€”ScubaKai

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in four colors).

    25. A latex mask you can wear if you don't mind looking a little corny. And, you know, terrifying.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    26. An inflatable dino that'll make your heart dino-soar when you hand out candy and the trick or treaters giggle every time they walk by.


    Promising review: "Omg I’m in love with this costume!! I never thought inflatables would be comfy but this one is not hot and it’s kept inflated with the portable battery in the prebuilt pocket! Plus it’s hella cute. Honestly the best buy!! Best Halloween costume ever!!" β€”SHENG-HSUN,LO

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in three colors).

    27. A bird mask you can get if you want your costume to have just a smidgen of pigeon.


    Promising review: "This is not just a mask. This is a transformation. You wear this and you become someone else; you become... something else. I highly recommend this transformative and deluxe necessity. It will endear everyone around you. Your immune system will be at it's highest, your financial status will increase, and people will flock to you. You will conquer all fears and at the end of each day and fly towards the sun." β€”J. Conrad

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    28. A unicorn cat onesie sure to delight anyone who wants to spend Halloween as both a cat *and* a unicorn. Why not both?!

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $29.90 (available in sizes XS–L).

    29. A bass trophy costume that'll only look slightly fishy.


    Promising review: "This makes for one easy and amusing Halloween costume! It was a hit. I got more laughs and comments than the people who clearly spent a lot more money/effort on their costume and makeup. I felt kind of bad about that one, LOL." β€”VioletSkye

I wore it with leggings and bought little LED Spider lights and pinned them on. I also got a headband to match." β€”Yaya

    Get it from Amazon for $17.39.

    31. And a MOMO mask, because the only thing scarier than going as an out-of-date meme is going as THIS out-of-date meme.


    Promising review: "My teens watch alot of YouTube and I had heard my teen daughter mention how terrifying MOMO was. This is affordable and the photos and description are accurate. I dressed with a black hoodie and in dim lighting it is pretty terrifying. I keep it hidden so they can't scare me with it! It's good quality and fairly priced. It's great for pranking." β€”desiree
