This is Halloween — a season celebrated with lots of sweets, haunted houses, spooky movies, and of course, a flurry of funny, classy, sexy, and cheeky costumes. It's never too early to start thinking about what you'll be wearing on October 31st, so get inspired by the hottest costumes of 2014:
1. "Orange Is The New Black"
This Halloween, pay homage to the ladies of Litchfield with an inexpensive prison jumpsuit and accessories based on character: dramatic eyeliner for Flaca, black, thick-framed glasses for Alex Vause, or a swipe of bright red lipstick for Lorna Morello.
Remember to keep it tasteful — and don't dress up like Crazy Eyes in full blackface.
Orange Prison Adult Womens Costume, $39.99, Spirit.
Sorry, but we're just not ready to let it go. Kids (and adults!) everywhere will be celebrating their Frozen obsessions, and donning Elsa, Kristoff, Anna, and Olaf costumes this October 31st.
Frozen Costumes Kids & Adults, $4.99 - $49.99, Spirit.
3. 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
Use Halloween as your excuse to go out — all out — in head-to-toe green body paint as Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy. All you need is a black bodysuit, green body paint, and pink temporary hair dye (Demi Lovato's Secret Color extensions would be perfect for achieving Zoe Saldana's partially pink 'do!)
Women's Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Costume, $43.99, Amazon.
Secret Color Pink Extensions, $19.99, Secret Color.
Take your witchy costume to the next level this Halloween with an Angelina Jolie-inspired Maleficent costume.
Adult Maleficent Costume, $49.99, Party City.
5. 'The Hunger Games'
There's no better way to celebrate being a fierce, indepedent female than by dressing up as The Mockingjay herself, Katniss Everdeen. Purchase a costume, or DIY it with a lightweight, hooded jacket, a pair of cargo pants, a utility belt, and of course, her iconic mockingjay pin.
The Hunger Games District 12 Training Shirt, $39.99, Spirit.
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pin, $8.77, Amazon.
Because who doesn't want to be Olivia Pope — even if it's just for one night? For a practical costume, channel Kerry Washington in clothes inspired by the hit television show. The Limited's Scandal collection make the perfect Halloween costume — and the perfect work attire the day after. It's a win/win situation.
Scandal Collection, $49.95 - $128.00, The Limited.
8. 'The Maze Runner'
We get it: you (and your friends) totally forgot to get a Halloween costume for that party tonight. No worries. Grab some old clothes — the more beat-up, the better. Roll around in some dirt, and you have the perfect DIY costume: the cast of The Maze Runner.
