Be a Bridgerton Cast Member!

We loved the diversity of casts and costumes within the show, plus it should be an easy costume to put together. Even better, you and your friends can color coordinate and all dress within the same theme!

Squid Game Player Or Worker

Hopefully, we will never get the chance to experience something like Squid Game, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dress the part! For the players, any tracksuit set and a t-shirt with a number on it could make you look like a game participant. If you want to go all out, you can find a teal and white set and paint on some blood to look like you took part in some action. 

On the other hand, if you choose to be a worker in the Squid Game, you can easily make or buy a worker mask and wear a red jumpsuit! The great thing about this is that you and multiple people can all dress half and half, and it would look amazing on the gram!

Ted Lasso Soccer Coach

If you want to be a coach this Halloween, Ted Lasso is it. This is also another easy throw-on costume; any visor cap, sunglasses, a whistle, and a tracksuit with red and blue on it will do the job. If you wanted a group costume idea, you and your friends can also be Coach Beard and Nathan wearing the same set and looking as if you could coach a soccer game from the sidelines.

The Handmaids Tale

This is a classic but super easy and cool Halloween costume idea and can easily be replicated by wearing a red robe over a long red dress and a white cap, or you could buy the costume instead! If you wanted to, you or your friends can be a Commander or an Econowife who could wear blue suits and dresses and be a group costume! There are so many ways you could dress up and down this idea. Blessed be the fruit!

Beth Harmon from The Queen’s Gambit!

If you wanted to dress up in a period costume, maybe look into Beth Harmon from The Queen’s Gambit! Her story takes place from 1958 to 1968 and has impeccable style for you to choose from. You could also get a wig and hold a chessboard on the side to make the complete look. Playing chess has never looked so good!

Young Queen Elizabeth from The Crown

The Crown has taken home so many Emmy awards year after year, and it is safe to say that young Queen Elizabeth is someone that we all want to be at some point. Any sparkly dress with a blue sashay, bold jewelry, and a crown will make the look. If you wanted to make this a couples outfit, the other person could be Prince Philip!
