These Are The Most-Searched Halloween Costumes For 2017
5 Simple Steps To Creating DIY Skeleton Halloween Makeup
When is a skeleton anything but scary? When it’s a super glam Halloween skeleton, which is proving to be one of the most popular Halloween costumes. For the past few years, we’ve seen so many variations of the classic skeleton as everything from the butterfly skeleton to the half skull to the dia de los muertos skeleton (complete with a black lace veil) shows up to Halloween parties across the nation. It’s one costume that lets beauty lovers go absolutely wild and play with makeup, while barely having to worry about their look from the neck down — anything black and white will suffice, since the focus will be on your face. One of the greatest things about skeleton Halloween makeup is that it looks difficult to apply, but with a few good tips in mind, you’ll ace this look in minutes. Okay, it may take an hour or more, depending on your makeup skills, but, hey, it’s Halloween — and totally worth the extra time. Here’s a quick skeleton makeup tutorial. 1) Gather Up Your Makeup Materials The good news is: it’s quite possible you already have most of the beauty supplies you need to create a skeleton mask. Here’s a rundown of the cosmetics you’ll require: a super-light and pale foundation, light face powder, white eyeliner (the more pigmented, the better), black eyeshadow, black liquid liner (again, make sure it’s waterproof and pigmented), and a solid angled eyeliner brush. 2) Start With Your Face And Eye Makeup Got the lightest, palest foundation you could find? Perfect. After moisturizing your face to prevent flaky dry spots, slather that liquid foundation all over your skin, blend with a sponge, and then pat face powder all over your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin to set your makeup. Next, create two sizeable circles around your eyes using the black liquid liner. Instead of filling in the circles with liner, which will create a royal mess, gather as much black eyeshadow onto an eyeshadow brush as possible and go to town filling in the circles. 3) Color In Your Nose Draw a triangle on your nose using the black liquid eyeliner. Fill in the space with black eyeshadow, making sure you layer it on enough so that it appears thick. 4) Create Simple, Scary Teeth Grab your white eyeliner pencil and use it to color your lips — don’t be afraid of going over your natural lip line. To create the illusion of teeth, use the liquid liner and your steady handy to draw thin vertical lines from your top lip to your bottom lip. Draw as many thin lines as necessary to make your mouth look positively terrifying. 5) Provide A Few Great Details The skeleton look is all about contouring — but you can think of it as reverse contouring to make your face appear angular and hollow. You can use the liquid liner to create lines from your ear to your teeth and the black eyeshadow doubles as a shade that you place along your hairline and along the sides of your neck. Depending on the type of skeleton you wish to honor, your look may require a red lip or a pop of color on the eyes. Stay true to your own vision and have fun!

Here’s Everything You Need For A Harley Quinn Halloween Costume
Better late than never to start planning your Halloween costume. If you take this holiday really seriously, aka you want to look cute AND have a clever costume, you should consider a Harley Quinn Halloween costume. Google says it's one of the top trending Halloween costumes of the year--plus, it's way cuter than the other clown-face costume trending this year. The DC Comics character, played by Margot Robbie in "Suicide Squad" (LOVE her!), is the perfect combination of bad-ass grit and effortless cool. Did you know that this version of the character was inspired by Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry, specifically this 1976 look. So cool, right?? Here's a pic of the Harley Quinn character from a movie poster for the film ($2.52) "Suicide Squad." Her main features are the red and blue pigtail hair (which you can get by buying a wig, or if you have blonde or light-colored hair by creating pigtails and using hair dye like Manic Panic on the ends), her "Daddy's Lil Monster" raglan tee, Puddin choker, "Good Night" baseball, red and blue sequin hotpants, fishnet tights, gold jewelry and studded belt. So, how to do the Harley Quinn costume? 1. The Hair: You can buy one of these Pink and blue pigtail wigs ($15.39), there are tons of them on Amazon and on other Halloween costume sites. If you have blonde hair, just do a center part and create two high pony tail pigtails with red hair elastics. Use a 2-inch wand to curl the ends a bit, and pull tendrils from the top of the hairline. Then apply temporary pink/red and blue hair dye to the ends (start around the ear and spray/chalk down to the ends). 2. The Baseball Tee: For the top, you'll definitely need her exact Daddy's Lil Monster Raglan tee ($28.50), which is available at Hot Topic, Amazon, and the Halloween costume sites. You shouldn't have a problem finding the exact one, but if you're getting the costume last minute and need to improvise--any white raglan/baseball tee with blue or white stripes on the arms should work. Bonus if it has a vintage graphic. The Clown Makeup: You'll need red, white and blue face paint or really pigmented makeup to get the look. Here's how to do it: do white all over the face (or if you're anti-face paint, try white face powder). You'll need a blue smear below the left eye and a red smear beneath the right. Here's a full makeup tutorial from Youtube for the hair and makeup: [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJNKmo_wPpg[/youtube] The 'Property Of Joker' Jacket: She wears a cool red and blue bomber jacket, too. Again, stores like Amazon, Hot Topic and the Halloween shops have the exact jacket (hurry--there's only one size left!), if you want to get one. They're $79.90, so if you'd prefer to improvise, just use a red or blue zip-up hoodie or jacket. Nobody will notice if it doesn't have the exact "Property of Joker" on the back. The Red And Blue Hot Shorts: This is a sexy part of the costume: her red and blue sequin hotpant shorts. Amazon has a bunch of different pairs, the Holographic Red and Blue Cosplay Booty Shorts ($44) look good. Don't worry, we're going to pair the shorts with tights (see below)--but if you're not comfortable in hot pants, you could rock longer shorters or leggings (as long as they are red or blue, or ideally one red leg and one blue leg). Here's a leggings version. The Studded Belt: Some of the shorts come with a belt, or you can buy a studded belt separately (or use one that you already own). We found this pyramid stud belt on Amazon. The Fishnet Tights: Here are some fishnet leggings you can wear under the tights. You can literally use any kind of tights--fishnet, opaque, striped, patterned, etc. This is an area of the costume that does not have to be exact! Whatever you feel most comfortable in. The 'Good Night' Baseball Bat: You'll definitely want this--but be careful!!--the "Good Night" baseball bat ($24.99) she uses in the film. If you want to save some money here, just use a regular baseball bat. The Puddin Choker: To top off the look, you'll need the Puddin choker ($9.95) that Margot wears in the film. We found the exact one at Spencer's (other sites have them too). You could also wear any gold or spiked choker or bangles that you have. At this point, you're just making the look feel more custom and cool.

The show is back — and this time it’s ready to tackle modern issues with that same humorous, but sensitive, tone. In other words, it’s the ideal year to gather up a group of friends and whip together fun DIY Will & Grace Halloween costumes. After assigning roles to four friends — you’ll need a creative, neurotic Grace, successful lawyer Will, socialite party girl Karen, and free-spirited Jack — it’s time to shop. Fortunately, Will & Grace costumes won’t put you in debt and aren’t difficult to find. Here’s what you need to get started. Grace Adler Red Wig Is it possible for anyone other than Debra Messings to possess such an incredible mane of red hair? Probably not, but you’ve got to at least try if you’re going to dress as Grace this Halloween. Amazon Wig ($16) Red Slacks Grace has the most creative flair of all four characters when it comes to her wardrobe. She isn’t afraid to take chances or experiment with colors and patterns — but there’s no doubt red is her signature shade. A pair of red slacks like these are classic Grace. Amazon Red Hanger Dress Pants ($27) White Ruffled Shirt There’s an iconic episode in the original Will & Grace when sassy Karen takes one look at Grace’s overly ruffled white blouse and tells her it looks just like whipped cream. Pay homage to older seasons by incorporating this blouse in your costume. Amazon Y&Z Ruffled Shirt ($18) Will Truman A Blue Suit We never saw Will looking anything less than perfect and professional. Of course, you needn’t spend thousands on a 3-piece Gucci suit, but this affordable navy suit, cut close to the body and in the perfect shade, is a must if you’re dressing up as the corporate attorney Amazon Fly Hawk Suit ($40) A Repp Tie Oh, Will, with his perfect repp ties. The preppy accessory is one of Will’s trademarks and goes perfectly with a sharp suit and crisp Oxford shirt. Finish off with a pair of plastic black glasses and make sure you don’t have a hair out of place. Amazon Nick Graham Repp Tie ($14) Karen Walker Brown Updo Wig Without a doubt, Karen’s favorite way to style her gorgeous brunette mane is in a refined updo. Feel free to sweep these bangs to the side and hold them in place with a bobby pin. Amazon SiYi Brown Updo Wig ($21) Animal Print Blouse Karen is a super fun character to portray because, while she’s mostly sophisticated, she isn’t afraid of adding a wild detail or two that complements her personality. And this animal print blouse offers just that: a taste of Karen’s fierceness, but always subdued enough to be worn in a professional setting. Amazon Cinyifan Leopard Blouse ($12) Black Slacks A staple in Karen’s work wardrobe (and she works a lot), these black slacks are neutral enough to showcase animal print and accessories. Amazon Velucci Dress Pants ($30) Chandelier Earrings Karen has no qualms about pairing cocktail party accessories with daytime pieces. Dangling chandelier earrings are just her style and perfect with a classic Karen updo. Amazon JoyJuly Chandelier Earrings ($8) A Fake Wine Glass Does this prop require any explanation at all? Karen is an expert in spirits and cocktails — and a fake glass of red wine will immediately tip off fans to the character you’re representing. Amazon Red Wine Glass Fake Drink ($19) Jack McFarland A Sweater Vest One of the greatest costuming decisions made on Will & Grace was the choice to dress Jack in subdued, almost geeky, sweater sets so that his explosively fun personality could stand out on its own. Amazon Tri-Mountain V-Neck Shell Vest ($21) Beige Slacks What goes well with a sweater vest? A neutral pair of beige slacks, of course — never too baggy and always cut close to the body so that they still look stylish and hip. Amazon Haggar Pants ($28)
How To DIY The ‘Big Little Lies’ Audrey Hepburn Halloween Costumes
HBO's drama miniseries Big Little Lies had literally everyone hooked this past winter and spring. That's why recreating the fashion looks from the hit series can create amazing Halloween costume ideas for this year. You can even have some extra fun with your DIY creation since the Big Little Lies characters dressed up in different Audrey Hepburn costumes for a themed party during the final episode. Both executive producer and actress Reese Witherspoon (Madeline Martha Mackenzie) and actress Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman) picked two iconic Audrey looks from Breakfast at Tiffany's that you can easily recreate. Without further ado, let's dive into how you can create a DIY Big Little Lies Audrey Hepburn Halloween costume. Shailene Woodley's Audrey Hepburn Black Dress Costume: Luckily, Shailene's a.k.a. Jane Chapman's Audrey Hepburn costume primarily involves one staple piece-- a little black dress. The key to picking out the perfect Audrey LBD is finding one that's fitted, about knee-length, and sleeveless. You can easily order this one off of Amazon for under $25. Note, the price range varies depending on the size that you order. Amazon SE MIU Women Sleeveless High Neck Bodycon Pencil Dress Tank Shirt Dress ($13.99-22.99) It's key to have a sleeveless black dress because you also need Audrey's iconic long black gloves for this look. Along with your LBD, you can also order this pair of black satin gloves from Amazon for less than $10. Amazon Vijiv 1920s Glove Opera Satin Long 20s Gatsby Flapper Gloves ($9.99) Next, let's talk hair. To replicate Audrey's hair in Breakfast At Tiffany's you'll want to opt for an updo. Just like Audrey, you can spice up your hairstyle with this tiny crown hairpiece. Remember to add this to your Amazon cart before checking out-- it's only about $6! Amazon Lovelyshop Tiny Royal Crown Rhinestone Hair Comb ($5.22) Lastly, the perfect final touch for this look is a simple strand of pearls. Obviously real pearls would be expensive if you don't already own some, but you can always opt for this pearl necklace from Target for less than $10. Your LBD, black gloves, crown hairpiece, pearls, and some black pumps can effortlessly create the most amazing Audrey Hepburn Halloween costume this year. Target Short Pearl Necklace - 18" - Silver/White ($9.99) Reese Witherspoon's Audrey Hepburn Sleepwear Costume: Now, let's move onto Reese Witherspoon's Audrey costume in the Big Little Lies finale. Reese's character Madeline chose the Holly Golightly sleepwear look from Breakfast At Tiffany's. If you can't borrow an oversized white button-down from someone you know, you can purchase this white tunic dress from Amazon for about $17. Amazon HAOYIHUI Women's Casual Long Sleeve Boyfriend Pocket Shirt Dress Tunic Top ($16.99) The simple white dress can then be paired with Madeline's statement pink tassel earrings. Plus, these earrings are also trendy considering tassel earrings are so in right now. You can also order these off of Amazon for $7.50. What a deal! Amazon MELUOGE Beautiful Tassel Long Earrings Colors Bohemia Ethnic Earrings ($7.50) Lastly, you can't forget about the sleep mask. Luckily, Amazon has an offer on one that looks just like the one Audrey wears as Holly-- which is also seen on Reese in the Big Little Lies HBO finale.

How To DIY An Evolution Of Taylor Swift Halloween Costume
In just a few short years, Taylor Swift has been a million different people and she owes it all to the incredible fearlessness she has when it comes to allowing her style to evolve. The Look What You Made Me Do pop singer traces her roots back to country music, and she had the long blonde ringlets and cowboy boots to prove it. Not content to be pigeonholed in one category, she changed up her image when launching her pop career and experimented with ladylike silhouettes and short-shorts and loafers combos that can only be described as all kinds of adorable. And then, of course, she chopped off her hair and Swift’s style evolution really took off. There’s no stopping the singer when it comes to playing around with her looks and trying on everything from a goth persona to a (literal) circus ringmaster. If you’re thinking of DIY-ing a Taylor Swift Halloween costume, the good news is you have plenty of looks from which to choose. Instead of selecting a straight-up Swift circa 2017 style pulled straight from her newest album Reputation, why not change things up and create a look that pays homage to several Swift style phases from throughout the years? Here are some key pieces you’ll need. 1) A Long, Blonde Wig Given Swift’s hair style changes over the past decade, you have quite a few wigs that could work on Halloween — anything from a sleek blonde bob to that bleach blonde Coachella experiment a few years back could work. But we have to go with Swift’s original signature hairstyle: a super-long mane of curly blonde ringlets that is the envy of every girl in country music. Combining this wig with more modern Swift ensembles will drive home the point that you aren’t just Taylor Swift this Halloween — you’re every version of Taylor Swift. Amazon Mxangel wig ($53) 2) Cowboy Boots Like long, curly hair, cowboy boots were one of Swift’s earliest style trademarks. She seems to favor cute flats and striking heels over boots these days, but there was a time when Swift wore these bad boys with a handkerchief hem halter dress at the 41st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards and then again one year later with a sparkly teal formal dress while performing on stage. Amazon Lolli Couture Cowboy Boots ($10-36) 3) The Ringmaster Costume Swift saves her cutest, most iconic outfits for her tours and videos. And this one — a classic ringmaster costume that she wore in 2012 to promote her Red album — made certain the world knew that she was in charge. When you’re honoring a star who has her legs insured for $40 million, you should definitely plan on showing yours off, too. Amazon Roma Costume ($169) 4) Heart-Shaped Glasses Remember Swift’s 22 music video? It may not go down in history as her most popular vid, but there are more than a few style choices from the set that you can steal for Halloween. And none are more iconic than this pair of red heart-shaped sunglasses, which seem to scream “Taylor!” Amazon Armear Oversized Heart-Shaped Glasses ($7) 5) Classic Red Lipstick Red lipstick is to Taylor Swift as contouring is to Kim Kardashian. No Swift Halloween costume is complete with it — and this tube by Maybelline called Are You Red-dy is perfection. Amazon Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipcolor in Are You Red-dy ($5.50)

How To DIY The Most Epic Eclipse Halloween Costume
The 2017 solar eclipse definitely had everyone hyped up this past August, and you can be a hit yourself with your own Halloween costume this year. It's always more fun to create duo or group DIY costumes, so grab your friend or partner this year and get crafty. With just a few affordable pieces you can create your own hilarious eclipse halloween costume before Oct. 31. It's actually super easy to make this eclipse costume, and you may already have some of the pieces that you'll need to create it. If you do have to purchase some things however, don't worry-- they're all so inexpensive! First, you'll need to think of a duo costume that will make your look's colors contrast from your partner's to create an eclipse-like visual. We say to go the black and white route and find pieces that have metallic material to make you look extra bright and shiny. Start to envision your duo costume-- how will you pose for pictures? Simply put, the one half of the duo can dress in black as the moon and the other will dress in bright white as the sun's rays. For one of the costumes, grab a black t-shirt like this comfy Hanes one from Amazon for less than $8. Amazon Hanes Women's Nano T-Shirt ($6.53-8.00) Next, you can pair your black t-shirt with these metallic black shorts to help complete your look. You can conveniently order this pair of shiny shorts from Amazon for less than $16. The best part about these two pieces is that they also come in matching colored options for the sun's costume-- which is perfect for a duo costume look. Amazon SweatyRocks Women's Yoga Hot Shorts Shiny Metallic Pants ($15.99) Of course you'll also need a pair of eclipse glasses for your eclipse Halloween costume. Luckily, you don't have to worry about whether these glasses will actually work this time around. Everyone will definitely get the hint and understand what you're dressed up as with these as your go-to must-have accessory. You can order them in a pack of five, so you have one for you and one for your partner, for less than $10. The remaining glasses can serve as photo props for other party goers--which definitely makes a hilarious photo opp! Amazon Rainbow Symphony Eclipse Glasses - CE and ISO Certified Safe Solar Eclipse Shades ($9.95) Let's move onto the sun's costume. While you could go a yellow route with your look, think about how the eclipse appears once the moon completely covers the sun. It looks like there are rays of bright white light around it, right? That's why we suggest a white costume for this duo look--which also includes metallic shorts, of course. Amazon Hanes Women's Nano T-Shirt ($6.80-8.00) Like the Hanes t-shirt, the price for the metallic shorts depends on the style that you order. Hanes prices vary depending on your size, but the price for these shorts is $1 cheaper than the black pair because of the selected color. Luckily, both the black and silver pairs come in a wide range of sizes, so there's really a pair available for just about anyone to purchase. Amazon SweatyRocks Women's Yoga Hot Shorts Shiny Metallic Pants ($14.99) For more Halloween inspiration make sure to check out how to create an Eleven Stranger Things costume and how to DIY It clown Halloween makeup.

And The Award For Best Halloween Costume Goes To… You As Emma Stone From La La Land!
Emma Stone took home her first Oscar for the role of struggling actress Mia in the musical smash La La Land this year--and you might take home your first "best costume" award by replicating her look for Halloween 2017. A yellow dress, some dance shoes and few moves is all you need (and, um, maybe a Ryan Gosling look-alike on your arm?). And by "dance moves" I don't mean formal tap training like Stone got for the movie--you can definitely have fun with it. This is a good costume for anyone who wants to prance around all night, twirling on telephone polls and skipping through stop traffic (okay, don't do that last part). Let's dive into this epic Halloween costume. First--get that soundtrack in your brain by catching up on the trailer and other beloved scenes from the film. You can buy or rent the full movie now--it's everywhere on digital release. And with Academy Awards for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Original Music Score and more... why wouldn't you want to? It's a beautiful film, and to play Mia, aka Emma Stone, you'll need to get in the musical theater state of mind. Our favorite songs are "A Lovely Night" and "Someone In The Crowd." Just a heads up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pdqf4P9MB8 Ahh--that was nice, right? Okay, here's how to be Emma Stone from the "Lovely Night" scene--aka, the yellow dress scene--from the film. If you really want to take the costume up a notch, make it a couples costume and enlist someone to be your Sebastian. Again, we're not saying they *need* to look like Ryan Gosling--but that would be nice, wouldn't it? For the Sebastian side of things, all he/she needs is a white Oxford shirt, tie, slacks and men's dance shoes or brogues. And here's what you'll need for her: 1. The dress. Emma Stone wears a few cute dresses in the film--another favorite is her blue swing halter dress from the "Someone In The Crowd." Let's start with the classic yellow dress though, which is also used on the movie poster, DVD cover and other promotional materials. It's more recognizable! You can find exact replicas of the dress online. Here's one from Amazon. Obviously, you should buy whatever cheapest and available in your size when it times come to order: Yellow party dress ($29) 2. Dance shoes. These are ugly, but they're kind of essential for the costume. These are your classic wing tip heeled dance shoes. Emma wears something almost identical in the film. These are from Amazon--maybe you can find them for cheaper at Goodwill? Wing tip dance shoes ($27.99) 3. A wig. Emma Stone wears her strawberry blonde hair at shoulder-length with a center part in the film. If you have hair just like that, you're golden. If not, here's what I think is the perfect wig for the costume: Wig ($23.99) Now it's time to memorize all the lyrics. Good luck! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waTDxRZ93Qc
This Billie Jean King From Battle Of The Sexes Halloween Costume Is A Winner
Academy Award winner Emma Stone just sunk her teeth into one of the most epic sports stories of all time: the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, dubbed the "Battle of the Sexes." Her movie by the same name premiered in theaters this month and is getting lots of buzz. If you own a tennis racket (or just want to swing one on Halloween) this is the perfect costume. Billie Jean famously beat the male chauvinist in the match--plus, you get to wear Adidas sneakers. It's a win-win for fashion and feminism. Emma Stone put her game face on (and gained 15 lb. of muscle!) to play tennis great Billie Jean King in "Battle of the Sexes"--and to get YOUR game face on for the Halloween costume, first thing you should do is study her look in the movie trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5ykcuAS1F4 "He made a bet. She made history." is the tagline of the film--and the movie does a good job of showing how this epic spectacle of a match came to be. In it, Stone trains hard and steps up to the plate to be an example for an entire generation of women. Love the feminist message! Now, here's what you'll need to be her for Halloween: 1. A retro tennis dress One of the signature tennis looks for women is a white pleated dress or skirt. Billie Jean's dresses even back in the 70s were pretty timeless--so you can splurge on something from Adidas or Stella McCartney and actually wear it again after Halloween. I like this Adidas one--although it's $140, and if you don't want to spend that much simply check out your local Salvation Army or Goodwill (or sporting goods store for something in the under-$50 range). adidas Women's Pharrell NY Vintage Dress ($140) 2. A mullet (no offense, Billie Jean!) All due respect to Billie Jean, but she definitely rocks a mullet hairstyle--especially at the time of the Battle of Sexes match. Hey, it was the 70s! You'll need to come pretty close to her hairstyle to pull off this costume. Unless you want to cut your hair--which you definitely don't--you'll need a mullet wig. I found this one on Amazon--it's one of the less offensive mullet wigs for women out there: Mullet wig ($9.99) 3. A tennis racket. Depending on how intensely you want to play the role--or how much you want to spend--you can go a number of ways. You can buy an actual wooden vintage/retro tennis racket to get *really* in character. But they aren't cheap. Or, you can grab a cheap Wilson racket on Amazon--nobody will notice the difference between the wooden styles they played with back in the 70s versus a more modern synthetic racket. Or, of course, if you own a tennis racket--just use that. Our pick: a cheap Wilson racket form Amazon ($14.99) 4. Round eyeglasses One of the things Emma did to look the part was don round eyeglasses like the ones the real Billie Jean wears. You'll need these! I found a quick and easy pair on Amazon--but you can use whatever round eyeglasses you've got. These are ugly--but they're only $1.50. Gotta love Amazon. Retro round glasses ($1.50) 5. Sneakers Yasss--here's when you can either wear something you own, or use it as an excuse to buy a new pair of Adidas sneakers. These Baseline sneakers will work just find. She also wore the black pair IRL. Adidas Baseline sneakers (from $39) 6. Tennis balls This is totally optional and just a fun prop that you can carry around and/or play with throughout the night. I mean a tennis player needs balls! Tennis balls ($7) So, there you have it--everything you need to kick some male chauvinist you-know-what this Halloween! This Halloween costume is an ace as far as we're concerned. One more thing, don't forget to check out this year's best pop culture Halloween costumes!

As you'll recall, Queen Bey nearly broke the internet this past June when she posted the first picture of her twins Rumi and Sir Carter via Instagram. Though Beyoncé kept it simple with her outfit by only wearing a long, flowing floral kimono, a light blue veil and ruffled blue underwear, it made quite the impact on the world. The photo now has over 10 million likes and over 31,000 comments. Talk about an epic birth announcement! Since this photo was so big, you know it would make the perfect Halloween costume. Luckily, this outfit is super easy to duplicate if you're looking to channel Bey on Oct. 31! It requires minimal planning and two super adorable accessories: twin baby dolls. Think you've got what it takes to be Queen Bey this year? Let's break down the Beyoncé Twin Reveal Halloween costume step-by-step: The Veil Electric Blue Wedding Veil ($26) You're going to need a gorgeous blue veil to complete this look, which can easily be done by getting some blue fabric and gluing it to a headband.

The Kimono Purple Floral Robe ($17.90) The kimono Bey rocked in her Instagram was made by Spanish menswear designer Palomo Spain.

Rumi & Sir JC Toys Lots To Cuddle Babies ($19.99) Queen Bey's outfit wasn't the only thing that made this photo so iconic.

Charlize Theron As 80s Spy Lorraine Broughton From Atomic Blonde Is A No-Brainer Halloween Costume
Dressing up as an undercover agent for Halloween is hot--and Charlize Theron AS an undercover agent is even hotter. That's why your Halloween costume this year should be none other than Charlize's latest role--Lorraine Broughton in Atomic Blonde. The sexy spy action thriller that came out this summer and is going to be big for the holiday because the digital release is October 24, 2017--just days before Halloween. Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, the movie adaption already has a cult following and a killer female lead. This is Halloween gold! In the Cold War-era film, Theron plays MI6 agent Broughton--complete with a platinum blonde wig, dark sunglasses and trench--making the costume extremely sexy and SO EASY. You might even own half the items needed for the costume. Here's exactly how to do it: 1. Who is Atomic Blonde, aka Agent Lorraine Broughton? First, get inspired by watching the trailers for the film. Once you learn more about the character, you'll definitely want to be her for Halloween. In the trailer, you see Charlize showing off her action chops--she studied martial arts and did other "intense" training to prep. She even did her own stunts! The chick is so bad a$$ she makes the perfect Halloween costume: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIUube1pSC0 The director of the film David Leitch has said that Theron impressed everyone on the film by being able to do more than 20 moves without before needing another take. So cool! The character Lorraine Broughton is an "expert in escape and evasion"--aka she can fight her way out of any corner. Cue Queen's "Killer Queen." Now that you've gotten the whole undercover-agent-in-Berlin vibes, now you can prep the costume. Pre-order Atomic Blonde on Blue Ray from Amazon now. 2. The Perfect Blonde Wig If you have blonde hair, great--but you still might want to spring for a wig because Lorraine has really platinum hair. Like, even blonder than Charlize's own natural color. Plus, the hair is shoulder-length, wavy and requires bangs--so, if you want to look *exactly* like the character, definitely opt for a wig. This one we found on Amazon is perfect. Plus, it's fun to wear wigs! Kapish? Blonde wig from Amazon ($17.99) 2. A trench coat Obviously, spies wear trenches (or at least, according to Hollywood), and Charlize wears so many good ones in this 80s-inspired film. Costume designer Cindy Evans dressed her in a custom white John Galliano coat, a Burberry trench, a vintage Max Mara coat, and more. For the costume, you can get away with wearing any sleek belted trench you already own--or I found one on Amazon that should work well: Double-breasted trench (from $31.99) 3. Sunglasses Obviously, you'll need dark sunglasses to go undercover. If you own Ray-Ban Wayfarers or any other dark square frames, that should work great. Charlize wore these exact Saint Laurent sunglasses in the film--but I also found you a cheaper look-alike pair on Amazon: Black Wayfarer Sunglasses ($17.98) 4. Tall boots Charlize wore thigh-high Stuart Weitzman boots in the film, but if you don't have an extra $500 laying around, I found a cheaper look-alike pair on Amazon, too. You'll need these for all the a$$-kicking you're going to do: Thigh high boots (from $29.99) So, there you have it--everything you need to for an Atomic Blonde Halloween costume! Now, we leave you with this parting gift: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI7HVnZlleo

Whether you're a fan obsessed with the series, or just want a killer 1980s Halloween costume, then we've got the perfect costume idea in mind for you. Luckily, you can easily create your own 1980s inspired GLOW Halloween costume.

For this DIY look, we're going to focus on Alison Brie's iconic Zoya the Destroya character. It's time for big 80s hair and neon leotards-- let's get to it. Of course you'll need a stretchy leotard if you're pretending to be an all-star wrestler. This neon pink one closely matches the crazy colored ones they wore in the 80s. Plus, you can't go wrong with a costume clothing staple that's only under $15, right? Spirit Halloween Neon Pink Leotard ($14.99) Next, you'll need some leggings to wear under your leotard.

However, cozy black leggings (that you probably already have in your closet) will do just the trick. H&M Jersey Leggings ($9.99) You can't think of the 80s without thinking of big hair.

Luckily, there are plenty of drugstore products that can help you achieve the same look. For bold shimmery eyes you can pick up this Maybelline palette for less than $10. Our favorite shade is the electric teal blue, which will contrast and stand out beautifully from your hot neon pink leotard.

Believe it or not, the blue makeup trend has been making a comeback since earlier this year. So, while you're trying to pull off a GLOW look, you'll also be keeping up with the trends.

Here’s How To DIY A Pennywise ‘It’ Halloween Costume
The blockbuster hit of the movie adaptation for author Stephen King's It book has caught the attention of viewers nationwide. The It movie debut broke records as it pulled in $123 million over the weekend of its domestic opening, according to Fortune. That means it had the biggest horror movie opening weekend ever. So, whether you're a fan of the horror novel, latest movie, or just want a scary Halloween costume for this year, then a Pennywise clown costume is the way to go. Luckily, there is an easy and affordable way to DIY your own woman's Pennywise It Halloween costume this year. The Pennywise clown in the movie is a man, but you can create your own woman's version of the iconic character. The easiest way to create the look is by purchasing some sort of clown dress. This one from Hot Topic is super affordable and comes in a wide range of sizes. Be sure to buy this clown dress soon, because we're sure the costume won't be available for much longer since everyone is going to want it this year. Hot Topic Scary Clown Costume Dress ($32.90) Pennywise's clown is pretty staticky and crazy, but you can achieve the same look in a more fashionable way by purchasing this red wig. This particular one from Walmart will only cost you less than $20 and will pair perfectly with your clown dress. You can also tease and comb the wig to make the hair more chaotic so that you can resemble Pennywise more closely. Walmart Leg Avenue Long Wavy Red Wig Adult Halloween Costume ($16.28) No clown costume is complete without a red clown nose. While you can opt to use red makeup to paint your nose, this foam nose would help you to get the same point across. Plus, you won't have to worry about red makeup going up your nose or smudging in the spot where you would need it the most. Spirit Halloween Red Foam Clown Nose ($1.99) Now, you should consider using white cream makeup to create the base of your costume makeup. You can't really be a clown without a painted white face, especially if you want to dress up as Pennywise for Halloween this year. This face makeup from Party City is not only super affordable, it will also be easy on your skin. It's non-toxic despite its strong pigmentation, so it's completely safe to use on your face. Party City Cream White Makeup ($1.99) Whether you choose to wear red makeup on your nose or not, you should still purchase a tube of this creamy product to apply makeup around your eyes. Pennywise is seen in It with red makeup applied from above his brow bone in a line past his cheek and curved down to his mouth. For less than $3 you can get the same look thanks to Spirit Halloween. This specific red cream makeup is guaranteed not to smudge and is also hypoallergenic. Spirit Halloween Red Cream Makeup ($2.49) For the final Pennywise accessory, you can purchase some red latex balloons. Pennywise is seen in It placing red balloons around to indicate that he can see the children, and that he is watching them. Red latex balloons are super inexpensive and can be the perfect spooky touch to any Pennywise Halloween costume.

How To Pull Off The Perfect DIY North West Halloween Costume
You know that all eyes are always on mom Kim Kardashian, but let's not forget about her first born with Kanye West. Four-year-old North West has made her stylish mom proud by wearing her own iconic looks. Honestly, we've never seen fashion look so good-- and she's only four! That doesn't come as a surprise to us though since she has a mom like Kim, and fashion obsessed aunts like Kendall and Kylie Jenner. You can probably even find many pieces of North's outfits in your own closet, and if you don't, you'd definitely want them for yourself. No no, North doesn't wear clothing with characters plastered all over, she opts for velvet dresses and athletic sneakers. With a few simple pieces, you can copy North West's style by creating your own North West Halloween costume this year. One of her iconic looks you may have noticed: North West loves to wear velvet dresses. Luckily, there are plenty of velvet dress options you can choose from online in a range of prices. This dress from SheIn is less than $10 but you can also opt for this one from H&M for $15 or this one from Lulus for $14. SheIn Pink Velvet Slip Dress ($7.00) Now, let's talk sneakers. You already know that Adidas have been one of the most stylish sneakers of the past year (if not the most stylish). North West loves to wear street style sneakers like these-- that's when she's not showing off Kanye's Yeezy shoes of course. So, if you've been waiting for a good reason to finally buy Adidas Superstars then now is your chance. These are the perfect pair to your North West velvet dress look. Adidas Women's Originals Superstar Shoes ($80.00) North has also been seen pairing her velvet dress with one unique piece-- a graphic tee.

You Can Get Lady Gaga’s Pink Hat For Under $20 To Make The Perfect ‘Joanne’ Halloween Costume
When she's not busy receiving a standing ovation at the Toronto International Film Festival for her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, Lady Gaga tops the charts with her latest albums. Her one album in particular, Joanne, is honestly iconic thanks to its emotional hits, such as "Million Reasons." Not to mention, her most recent album's artwork is also so beautiful. Gaga's look has come a long way since her "Poker Face" days, and it's definitely one you want to steal style inspiration from. You actually can create your own Lady Gaga Joanne Halloween costume with super affordable pieces. If we're being honest, we all go goo goo for Gaga, let's admit that. For starters, let's talk hats. While fedoras can tend to not be the most fashionable of hats, Lady Gaga proves you can pull one off. We found a perfect Joanne hat dupe for you that you can wear time and time again even after Halloween is well over. This one from Lulus is the same light pink shade as Gaga's, and is the perfect size for showcasing the same long blonde hair. Lulus Top It Off Blush Pink Suede Fedora Hat ($19) Now, onto hair. Not all of us are blessed with the same frizz-free golden locks as Lady Gaga, right? Luckily, you can always turn to an inexpensive wig come Halloween night. This one from Party City will only cost you less than $20, and can easily give you the same Gaga vibes in no time. Party City Sunshine Day Blonde Wig ($19.99) Luckily, the hoop earrings Gaga wears in her album cover artwork are also super fashionable. In case you missed it, hoop earrings are so in right now. You can get a long-lasting yet affordable pair of gold hoops from Kohl's for just $25. They're nothing too crazy but they're the best wow factor touch to almost any outfit (even after Halloween)! Kohl's 14k Gold-Plated Hoop Earrings ($25.00) Now, we can't necessarily see what Lady Gaga is wearing on her body on the front of her Joanne album. However, we can be practical and realistic when it comes to choosing our own shirt option to achieve this Joanne look. You can opt for a nude or light pink tank or bodysuit to pair with the rest of your Gaga accessories. Going for this style won't distract anyone from the main gist of your costume and it will also still be super practical. You can't go wrong with that, can you? ASOS Cami With Skinny Straps in Rib ($13.00) Lady Gaga also has her own permanent accessory for any outfit. The Grammy winner has a whopping 19 tattoos (that we know of). And while you can't purchase a fake replica of Lady Gaga's shoulder tattoos, you can still recreate them with affordable makeup. Let's think of what you'll need. For a removable tattoo, you can simply use some waterproof long-lasting liquid black eyeliner to draw on Gaga's shoulder tattoos. Eyeliner is guaranteed to be safe for your skin and it will help you achieve the ultimate Lady Gaga Joanne Halloween costume. [Photo: Interscope/Streamline]
Here’s Everything You Need To DIY A Katy Perry ‘Swish Swish’ Costume
Katy Perry's outfits typically verge on hilarious, outrageous, and downright magical, so we're not surprised that you want to dress up as the pop star for Halloween. But while many of her looks will require some hardcore crafting skills (because it's not everyday you can find a frosting gun or a cupcake bra), this "Swish Swish" costume is actually quite simple to create! Here, we've uncovered everything you'll need to emulate the sexy and sporty look from her latest music video. First off, we have mention that we love the irony of the video. As Katy Perry sings about making "another one in the basket," she seems to do everything but that while dribbling down the court with her team of non-athletes. To embody the humor of this look, start with a pair of spandex tiger print shorts. Not only do they reflect the spirit of her team's name (the Tigers), but their flexible material will provide ultimate comfort throughout the night! Let's just say that Jessica in the latex cop costume will be jealous after hour three. Q-Sport Wild Orange & Black Tiger Stripe Printed Spandex Athletic Shorts ($15.95) For the top, you can really choose any jersey you like. A plain black version is always a safe bet. But if you really want to go the extra mile, there are a variety of sites you can use to personally design your own option - from the shirt style to the monogrammed name! You'll obviously want it to say "Tigers" across the front, but you can also choose a tight front zip construction to really nail Katy's look. Pair the piece with a cute bandeau underneath for an extra ounce of flirty flair - because even in gym clothes, Katy is always the queen of style and sass. Basically, that's pretty much all there is to it. You can top off the outfit with some sporty accessories like a wrist sweatband and add your favorite pair of kicks into the mix. We're currently digging Adidas Stan Smiths and the sleek Nike Cortez shoe. We don't about you, but we think this is a great excuse to indulge in our latest sneaker obsessions. And if you want to really convince everyone that you're Ms. Perry's alter ego, you can even choose to wear a platinum blonde pixie wig. The star's barely-there look became all the rage when she first made the chop back in May (in fact, we like it even better than her once long brunette locks, perky pink bob, and rainbow highlights). So if you decide to make the drastic change after just one night of sporting the fabulous cut, we won't judge. For even more amazing Halloween costume inspiration, check out this year's best pop culture Halloween costumes. And for all you "Backpack Kid" fans out there (yes, that is him swaying to and fro in the background of the "Swish Swish" video) we've got you covered with this simple and quirky look. What are you waiting for? Jump to it!

Here’s Everything You’ll Need For A Daenerys From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Halloween Costume
The HBO original series Game of Thrones may have just wrapped up its insane season 7 finale, but we predict the show will be HUGE in another way this fall. We think that costumes replicated after your favorite GOT characters will be your go-to Halloween look come Oct. 31. Which character should you be, though? There are so many to choose from—I mean, seven kingdoms worth. We think going with a member from the House of Targaryen is the perfect choice. I mean, who can really pass up going as Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen? With just a few simple pieces you can create an amazing Game of Thrones Daenerys Targaryen Halloween costume, that's also super affordable. First, you'll need to recreate Daenerys' to-die-for hair.

Daenerys is often covered from head to toe in different fabrics. You can wear the suede skater dress with a pair of black or brown tights. And if Halloween is a chillier night, you can absolutely switch out tights for leggings so that you stay nice and warm. Keep in mind that you should go for opaque tights or leggings to really nail the Daenerys Halloween costume. Women's Microfiber Tights ($14.99) You should shop for these Steven Madden combat boots so you can have some practical shoes for Halloween night that also capture Daenerys' look. The best part about these shoes is that you can wear them well into the fall and winter. You can't go wrong with adding another pair of combat boots to your closet!

Here’s How To Make A “Salt Bae” Halloween Costume This Year
Ah, the Internet—the beloved digital sphere where even the most seemingly simple videos have the potential to grow viral, inspiring memes and fan memorabilia. One such video that took the pop culture world by storm this year is the "Salt Bae" phenomenon. If you have no idea what we're taking about, you're not alone. TBH, I had never heard of this "Salt Bae" figure until last week. But, after doing a little Google research, here's a quick rundown. "Salt Bae," A.K.A. Nurses Gökçe, is a Turkish steakhouse owner who posted a video simply called "Ottoman Steak" in January, in which he cuts a piece of meat to juicy perfection. So, what makes a meat-cutting video go viral? With an impeccable flick of the wrist and precise arm form, "Salt Bae" earns his nickname by topping said steak with just the right amount of salt (see the shirt below for a visual), all while wearing a fitted t-shirt with an extremely deep scoop-neck and dark, round shades. You really just have to watch the video to get the full effect of its hilarity. If you're dying to take part in this viral sensation, there's no better time than Halloween to take the plunge. We rounded up everything you need for a "Salt Bae" costume, fake steak and all. "Salt Bae" is notorious for his iconic look, complete with gelled hair, a mustache, a white t-shirt tucked into black pants with a belt, and sleek round sunglasses. If you want to mirror his outfit perfectly, check out this white Vintage Cotton Scoopneck T-Shirt for $19.99 from J. Crew. Buuuuut, for a much more fun spin on the costume, why not buy a shirt with your Halloween persona printed on it!? This tee even comes in a hoody, perfect for chilly Halloween weather. Salta Bae Hanes Tagless Tee ($21.99) You also need black pants to complete the look. A pair of black jeans will do. If you don't already have some on-hand, take a look at this super affordable pair from H&M. For the finishing clothing touch, wear the pants with a black leather belt, like this Wide Leather Belt for $19.99, also from H&M. H&M Skinny Regular Ankle Jeans ($9.99) Next, you need a suave set of sunglasses. You wouldn't want to risk salt penetrating your eyeball when you marinate steak! You can actually re-wear this cool pair from Urban Outfitters once your "Salt Bae" days are over. And, they're currently on sale. Hello, thrifty Halloween shopping. Urban Outfitters Metal Round Sunglasses ($10) With the outfit out of the way, your props are the next key component to this costume. You're not truly "Salt Bae" unless you actually have a can of salt with you. You never know when something might need a little sprinkle of salt. Fill up a salt shaker from your kitchen, or just carry a small packet in your pocket. Nu-Salt Salt Substitute ($1.38) And, of course, you need a plastic piece of meat as the target of your salt-sprinkling. Even though this one is actually a dog toy, it still works. Your canine can use it post-Halloween, so you have some sort of validation for buying a t-bone toy. Dogmeat™ T. Bone Steak: Small ($6.48) Don't forget the most important part—keep your arm flexed and ready at all times for salt-sprinkling! You can also draw a fake mustache on your face if you really want to go all out.

Here’s Everything You Need To Be Princess Leia For Halloween
Hollywood lost an iconic female role model when Carrie Fisher suddenly passed away last December. Fisher was most known for playing the badass Princess Leia in the Star Wars series, but she appeared in many other films, and even published several novels and memoirs. Fisher solidified Princess Leia's heroic spirit off-screen, and she was truly one of the most inspirational female influences of our time. Posters of Fisher as Princess Leia even became a symbol of hope during the Women's March this past January. If you're looking for a powerful female figure (because, girl power) to replicate for your Halloween costume this year, pay homage to Fisher and recreate her most notorious look, cinnamon bun hairstyle and all. Here's everything you need to dress up as Princess Leia this Halloween. Naturally, you need a long white turtleneck frock to start. It's super perfect timing to wear her well-known outfit because bell sleeves are having a moment right now. If you're of the crafty nature (power to ya), you can actually find the pattern for her dress free online. If not, you can easily get an affordable version at a costume store. This costume from Jet.com has the whole Princess Leia package, complete with a hood, belt and white shoe covers. For a sexier version of the shapeless tunic, check out this one from Walmart for $25.93. You can also wear the costume version of her slave outfit from the Star Wars films for $44.99. Princess Leia Deluxe Adult Halloween Costume ($43.70) If you make your own dress or your costume doesn't come with footwear, you definitely need white space boots. A princess can't walk around in space in just any old boots, after all. This sturdy pair will stand the tests of space time and see you from planet to planet. White Princess Boots ($29.99) Princess Leia was the OG space bun queen (sorry, Miley Cyrus), and you can't NOT recreate her hairstyle. If you already have long brown hair, then you picked the perfect costume. Part your hair into two ponytails on the farthest outer spots of your head, twist the sections as tight as you can, coil them into buns and secure with as many bobby pins as you can find. If you don't have long brunette locks, this headpiece from J. C. Penny has you covered. You can even get a wig for $12.99 from Party City for the full effect. Star Wars Princess Leia Headband ($16.99) Since you're a princess defending a galaxy far, far away, you obviously need to be armed and ready. Leia had a black gun in the film, but this white and orange one from the Official Star Wars Costumes website looks just like it. Sadly, you don't get to carry a light saber. But a gun is cooler, tbh. Princess Leia Blaster ($11.99) For more DIY 2017 Halloween costumes, check out a Wonder Woman costume, a "cash me outside girl" costume, a Gigi and Bella Hadid costume, an Eleven from Stranger Things costume, a Beauty and the Beast costume, and a fidget spinner costume.

Here’s Everything You Need To DIY A Baywatch Halloween Costume
Crime! Hot lifeguards! The beach! Even 16 years after the original Baywatch TV show left the air, the premise of the 2017 movie remake remains the same, save for a few new fresh faces. Zac Efron, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Priyanka Chopra joined Baywatch alums Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff in this comedic, action-packed interpretation. In the film, these red-bathing-suit clad local lifeguards must protect their beloved beach from a sketchy new drug that's sweeping the area. Drama! This Halloween is the perfect time to channel your inner hot lifeguard and DIY a Baywatch costume. Step aside, Pamela Anderson, there's a new beach babe in town. It obviously wouldn't be a Baywatch costume with an itty bitty red swimsuit, so take it to the next level with this "Bae Watch" one piece. I mean, come on—you honestly can't find a more fitting and fun costume piece than this, even down to the color! It's a bit of a splurge for just a Halloween costume, so save it for future use next summer. Since Halloween definitely doesn't fall under swimsuit season, you'll probably want to wear this as a bodysuit tucked into a pair of jeans or leggings. Since, you know, it gets cold in October and all. For cheaper (but way less entertaining) versions of the famous Baywatch get-up, check out this J. Crew Scoopback One-Piece Swimsuit for $49.99, or this $30 Aerie Super Scoop One Piece Swimsuit. Private Party Baywatch Swimsuit ($99) You definitely don't want to cover up the most important piece of your costume (the bathing suit, duh). But, if you want an extra layer, this tank top's the way to go. It probably won't do much in terms of keeping you warm, to be honest, but it helps authenticate your outfit. Besides, you're a Baywatch babe—you bring the heat! If you don't want to go the traditional swimsuit route for your Halloween costume (which is totally understandable since it's the middle of fall), just sport this top with pants or red shorts and call it a day. Or, for a more revealing and Baywatch-appropriate top, check out this Urban Outfitters Baywatch Cropped Tee for $19.99. Target Men's Baywatch Malibu Beach Patrol Tank Top ($11.99) In case anyone had any doubts that you were a seductive lifeguard on a mission to protect the beach, add this inflatable boogie board to your ensemble. You can even use this comfortable prop to your advantage as an on-the-go chair, and pop a squat wherever you please. Disclaimer: this is not an actual professional life-saving device, so don't get too cocky. Walmart Baywatch Inflatable Mock Life Raft Preserver Boogie Board ($12.90) Your skin also needs to look the part of a sun-kissed lifeguard on duty, so douse your body in self tanner. Start applying a few nights before Halloween to build up a solid base tan. If you end up looking orange, no biggie—it's all in the spirit of Halloween, and it washes off easily. Give your hair a tousled, beachy look, perfect your slow motion running, and then you're officially a Baywatch lifeguard! Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($2.49) For more 2017 DIY Halloween costumes, make sure to check out this year's best pop culture Halloween costumes.
Find Out What You Need To Make The Best ‘Riverdale’ Cheerleader Halloween Costume
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. Roseanna Colour Pop Skater Skirt ($16) 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. UA ColdGear® Authentic Mock ($49.99) 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. Blue Soft Jersey Fabric Hair Scrunchie Bobble Elastic Hair Band ($4.50) 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. REVO Premium Professional Gaffers Tape ($19.99) 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. Iron On Embroidered Applique Patch ($3.50) 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.

Here’s How To DIY A Gigi and Bella Hadid Halloween Costume
Name a more powerful (and good looking) dynamic sister duo than Gigi and Bella Hadid, we dare you. From landing spreads in almost every major mag to stealing the show at New York Fashion Week, these genetically-blessed siblings have accomplished a lot more than their average 20 and 22-year-old counterparts. If you're not a celebrity junkie and you've somehow managed to avoid encountering any news on the Hadids, A.K.A. the new Kardashian family, here's a quick recap. One of their first claims to fame was appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with their mom, Yolanda. Now, they're huge names in the fashion industry and have landed themselves the notorious title of "it-girls." Woah. They've also made their marks on the celebrity dating scene—Bella used to date rapper The Weeknd, and Gigi is currently dating former One Direction singer Zayn Malik. These gals pretty much have it all, which makes them the perfect alter egos for Halloween. We rounded up all the DIY essentials to channel your inner style queen and grab a friend for Bella and Gigi Hadid Halloween costumes. First, decide which sister you want to dress as. Their mom describes Gigi as the blonde girl next door, and Bella as an edgy brunette. Choose wisely. For either of their costumes, it wouldn't be complete without a little Tommy Hilfiger action. Gigi actually has her own Tommy line, and is set to design another two collections in the future, so you obviously need to show that you're a true Tommy Girl in your Halloween outfit. Naturally, in true Hadid sister style, your Tommy Hilfiger top of choice should be of some sort of cropped variation. Not all of us can boast having chiseled cores like Bella and Gigi, so if you feel uncomfortable wearing a midriff-baring top, no worries. Pair it with super high waisted jeans or just tuck a regular length Tommy tee into your pants. Tommy Hilfiger Crop Top ($25) Here's an excuse to buy new jeans! The Hadid sisters are active wearers of ripped, high-waisted boyfriend style denim. Even though the modeling mavens have legs for days and the rest of us mere mortals have average-length stems, high waisted jeans give you the illusion of taller legs. Bella wears all-black more often, so look for darker jeans if she's your costume inspiration. Boyfriend Low Ripped Jeans ($39.99) What better way to show off your newly discovered longer legs than with sleek black booties? When they're not on the runway, both Bella and Gigi top off their street style looks with some elevated leather kicks. Opening Ceremony Livv Leather Bootie ($99.99) Even indoors in late October, you still need a pair of sunnies to block out the paparazzi, duh. The Hadid sisters frequently sport round shades, because they're super in right now, so this cheap pair can do the trick. H&M Round Sunglasses ($9.99) Since both Bella and Hadid are photo-taking extraordinares (as referenced by their combined 49+ million combined Instagram followers), use a selfie case as a prop for the finishing touch on your DIY costume. You can look and act the part with the Allure x Case-Mate light up selfie case to snap pictures in style.

You could also pick up this affordable black bodysuit from H&M that’s more fit for everyday wear if you want to go for a skater skirt and bodysuit look. Faux Leather Mini Cami Dress ($11.99) Adding a little extra bling to an outfit never hurt anyone, right? Ariana flawlessly wears a crystal choker necklace to make her "Dangerous Woman" look truly sparkle. You can dish out some extra cash on such a beautiful piece yourself to add even more style to your everyday outfits. Nordstrom offers this Rose Station Choker Necklace that closely resembles to the one Ariana has.
