There’s no need to put blood, sweat, and tears into coming up with this year’s perfect getup. Why? Because we’ve done the work for you. Our top picks for Halloween costume ideas mix pop culture with politics and plenty of Netflix-inspired looks.
After all, the past twelve months gave us bundles to work with — even if you stayed inside binge-watching Ted Lasso and Squid Game, you couldn’t miss the truly bonkers moments from the past year. But luckily, an oddball year is an outstanding year for Halloween costume ideas— remember when two billionaires flew to space back-to-back, or when Kim Kardashian wore head-to-toe black at the Met Gala like an actual dementor? Yea, “real” life gave us all the inspiration we need this Halloween.
Need a refresher? We’ve recapped the most costume-worthy highlights 2021 has to offer — from salacious celeb couples to a pair of meme-able mittens, there’s a range of sultry, funny, and downright weird ideas for anyone who still needs an outfit for October 31st.
