If you want to head down to Flavortown, or if you’re simply a fan of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, this costume is definitely for you. Even better if you’re hosting a Halloween party, you can act the part and whip up some tasty grub for your guests.

Okay, 80s kids, are you ready to impress your fellow sci-fi fans? What better way than to dress up as Marty McFly and Doc Brown from the 1985 film Back to the Future this Halloween? And, if you’re real creative, you can even try to make the famous car the two travel in throughout the film. Who ever thought this duo would make for the perfect costume?

A Lava Lamp

Truly, this is a costume not many people would think of when it comes to unique Halloween ideas. It’s unique and colorful, and it’s guaranteed to make you stand out in the crowd of couples and pop culture costumes!

If you’re one for nostalgia, you should definitely try this costume. Although not many people have lava lamps anymore, they are a solid nod to the past, which is perfect for people who appreciate old times.

The Beatles

Whether you have a family of four or a group of four friends, dressing up as the Beatles makes for the perfect group costume. Not only are the Beatles easily recognizable to people of all ages, but they have so many different eras, you can choose which one you want to dress up as. Here, we have the era of the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which is arguably one of the most colorful and unique Beatles era to ever exist. Makes for the perfect Halloween costumes, right?

Woody & Little Bo Peep

If you and your partner happen to be Disney fans, then this duo costume is perfect for the two of you. As Woody and Little Bo Peep, you can spark childhood memories in everyone you meet on Halloween. Plus, most of the time people dress up as Woody and Buzz Lightyear or Woody and Jesse, instead of Woody and Little Bo Peep. So, you’re sure to stand out in the crowd with this duo costume!

Cruella Deville

Another Disney favorite is Cruella Deville. Although she’s a villain, she makes for a great costume, especially with her wild hair and bright makeup. For added flair, try carrying around stuffed animal Dalmatian! Just be sure not to spook children too much, otherwise they might never want to watch 101 Dalmatians again.


Good Life Detroit

There’s nothing more classic Disney than Genie from Aladdin. And although no one-not even Will Smith-can play Genie as well as Robin Williams did in the 1992 animated film, this costume comes pretty close in terms of creativity.

So, if you’re looking for something extremely elaborate for your costume this Halloween, Genie might be it. It’s detailed, colorful and unmissable. You’ll just have to find a whole lot of cotton!


BuzzFeed / Pinterest

Who remembers Microsoft’s old built-in assistant, Clippy? Clippy was the tiny icon that used to appear at the top of old Microsoft documents to assist users with any questions or concerns they had. This adorable animated dude no longer exists on Microsoft, but most people still remember him. It’s definitely a costume not many people would expect on Halloween, so it’s worth a try!

The Heathers

For another cult movie to round out this list, we’ve included the 1989 film Heathers, which starred huge Hollywood icons, including Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Kim Walker.

Perfect for friend groups, this costume idea is a true throwback to the 1980s. And, it’s fairly easy to recreate. You’ll just have to decide who plays which Heather, which might start a fight!

A Chipotle Burrito

If you’ve got a little one in your house, and you also enjoy Halloween traditions, then chances are, you’re looking for a creative costume to dress them up in! What’s better than this adorable Chipotle burrito? Your baby will surely love being swaddled in a warm blanket, too. All you have to do is add some colorful toppings and a tad of foil, and you’re good to go!
