Spooky season is quickly approaching. From the fall aesthetic to the mountains of candy, it comes close to the top as one of the best holidays. It doesn’t matter how old you are, people from age two to eighty dress up for this fun and festive time of the year. If you’re like me, you probably still have no idea what to dress up as for this year.  Here are a few easy and quick costume ideas, because believe me, we are all going to end up needing this.


“Squid Game” Player and Guards

As it rises to the No. 1 show on Netflix, “Squid Game” is a thriller set in Seoul, Korea. This popular series is about a group of 456 people, all in major debt, playing children’s games under life-threatening circumstances to win a cash prize. A fun, easy and cheap costume to do with your friends, you can easily buy a tracksuit off amazon and customize it to your own liking.

“Twilight” Characters

Yup, you guessed it! Thanks to TikTok and Netflix, the “Twilight” movies are yet trending again. With some flare jeans, a flannel and a pair of converses, we can easily become the girl that we were jealous of back in 2010. The real question is, are you on team Edward or Jacob?

“Outer Banks” Characters

I can literally go into my closet right now and pull out a few items that fit perfectly with each of these characters. Living in Florida, dressing up as these characters should be a piece of cake for all of us! So don’t put away those shorts and bathing suit yet because yes, they ARE coming in handy in the end of October.

Taylor Swift

As one of the most popular pop stars of this era, you can easily dress up as one of Taylor Swift’s many eras. From Fearless to Folklore, your options are endless! My choice would be to dress up as Reputation Taylor though because her comeback was iconic and in my opinion, it is the quickest to put together last minute. All you need to do is to wear all black to achieve this look. You can also accessorize with a snake, the symbol of this era. If you don’t have a fake snake, don’t worry! You can make one using aluminum foil.

“Mean Girls”

I think we all know who these four girls are. “Mean Girls” is a classic and iconic movie that we were all obsessed with at one time. This can, without a doubt be another super easy, but yet creative Halloween group costume. With a cute pink top, a platted skirt and heels, you can own Halloween, Regina George style.
