1. An inflatable dinosaur
Jurassic Park will have nothing on you. This costume comes with a small fan used to keep the dinosaur inflated all night—however, it requires four AA batteries, so make sure you have those beforehand. It comes in one size, but many reviewers say it fits people of all shapes and sizes. Slip it on to have a roarin’ good time!
2. Winifred Sanderson
The Sanderson Sisters are back in town—and now you’re one of them. This Winifred Sanderson costume has rave reviews, with one claiming they “got dozens of compliments at the bar" and was even a costume contest finalist. Because this is the officially licensed costume, it’s as accurate as can be and instantly recognizable. If you want to go the extra mile, make sure to purchase a wig that will suit the character’s iconic hairstyle.
3. A creepy doctor
At least doctors from the recent pandemic aren’t looking as creepy as they did back in the dark ages. This costume comes with a mask and cloak, and all you’ll need is a black coat or outfit to fit underneath. The holes along the beak make it easy to breathe and the head belt is adjustable, so it can fit almost all head sizes.
4. A beekeeper
A beekeeper costume will be sure to have everyone buzzing about how great you look. The jumpsuit has a front zipper and comes with a wire and tulle hat that has tiny little bees circling around to spotlight your beekeeping abilities. Plus, because it covers you from head to toe, you'll stay warm while outside trick-or-treating with the kids or at an outdoor party.
5. A bumblebee
Enter a costume that works solo, but would also work great in combination with the above beekeeper costume. All you need to complete the look is a pair of black leggings—everything else is included. One reviewer said: “This is a great costume! It is just like you see in the picture and very comfortable. I like the fact that it is very kid appropriate for my workplace and I am adequately 'covered' so I do not freeze my buns off.”
6. A sea witch
Although we can’t say that this costume resembles a particular villain from a particular movie, we can say it is a gorgeous-looking polyester piece that comes with a stunning crown headband to match. As a plus-sized costume, it comes in women's sizes 1X/2X and 3X/4X. If you match it with a white wig, it will really pull everything together.
7. Buzz Lightyear
This costume ensures you’ll stay warm and disguised for the night if you’re outside collecting candy door-to-door. The jumpsuit is made from polyester and has a character-accurate design, so you'll look like you stepped right out of Toy Story. You’ll be ready to crash land when Halloween arrives.
8. A hotdog
Well, hot dog! This costume fits over your regular clothes and allows others to relish your colorful bun, lettuce trim and mustard swirl. It’s a pullover costume, so there's no zippers, ties or any other complicated stuff. It’s as comfortable to wear on a chilly autumn night as it is to don indoors at a spooky soiree.
9. A fox
Not only can you use this costume for Halloween, but it makes for a cozy onesie you can wear around the house for the winter months ahead. Use eyeliner to draw on some whiskers, and you’ll be ready to go. This onesie also comes in a few other animal designs, so if a fox isn’t to your taste, you can check out more.
10. A strawberry
Hang on to summer a little longer and bring fruity vibes as a strawberry. Throw on some tights or leggings and you’ll be ready to go. This costume has green leaves around the neckline and comes with a leafy headpiece. It's available in women's sizes XS to XXL. Berry nice!
11. A unicorn
This onesie is made of warm polyester fleece, so it’ll be super soft and cover your whole body. It’s roomy and comfortable, and well-suited for chilly evenings—both on Halloween and otherwise. It comes in unisex sizes S to XXL and the 1,000-plus reviewers say it fits true to size.
12. A king or queen
Pair this royal robe with a scepter and crown, and you’ll be king or queen of the party. It clasps in the front at the throat and is best suited for those between 5-foot-5 or above. With a red velvet color and gold details, all you need is a bit of confidence to convince everyone you’re the ruler of Halloween around here.
