Riverdale has been a smash hit on The CW since its release earlier this year and fans are quickly falling in love with its characters. If you’re one of the viewers that’s been hooked since the Riverdale trailer release, you may be thinking of how to channel your fave characters for your Halloween costume this year. One costume you should definitely consider if you want to be Betty and Veronica is to dress as one of the high school’s cheerleaders. Trust us, this costume is so easy to make — all you need are a few simple pieces!

Before trying to find that cheerleader uniform you have cramped in an attic somewhere, think of what look you can pull together from the items that are already in your closet. Put your costume planning into high gear and think about the outfit essentials first. To begin, you can start off with this affordable blue skater skirt from boohoo for instant cheerleader vibes.

Now it’s time to think about the top half of your outfit now that your bottom half is covered. If you’re sporty, or have sporty friends, search some closets for athletic gear to make a solid base for a cheerleading uniform. Chances are, you or someone you know has this white long-sleeved Under Armor essential that you can wear under your costume. However, if you don’t necessarily want to splurge on an UA mock, you can opt for a simple white turtleneck like this one from Forever 21.

Sometimes the finishing touches are really what pulls a costume together. Think of ways you can really make your outfit unique so that you stand out in a crowd. Luckily, scrunchies are becoming undeniably trendy again and will really help tie the whole costume together.  While it tops the look off, this blue scrunchie can also be a major lifesaver in helping to put your hair up and keep you cool come Halloween night.

The best part about this Riverdale theme is that it would make for an iconic squad costume. So, why not get you and your girls in on a Oct. 31 look together? Amazon sells Gaffers Tape in bulk for less than $20. You can split the cost with your friends to lower the cost of your own personalized Halloween look.

An embroidered iron on letter ‘R’ is an extra touch you can include when creating this costume. You could place it on a blue tank top, or order two to also place one on your cheer skirt. The choice is really up to you when working on your own DIY project, you can take the extra mile and go all out or you can make your costume quick and simple.

An authentic cheerleading uniform or a costume from a party superstore would certainly cost you a pretty penny. Following these tips will save you cash, and you could use some of the pieces in your everyday wardrobe down the line. You can make the best cheerleader dupe by combing this navy blue tank top and white turtleneck with a matching navy blue skirt.
