La Croix Costume

These La Croix costumes from Brit + Co were made with pop-up laundry hampers wrapped in colored felt. Use felt to create shoulder straps and layer over anything you please. To create the cans' watercolor background, use spray paint in a color slightly darker than the felt. Use felt letters and a cardboard tab wrapped in aluminum to complete the can.

Hocus Pocus Costumes

Dress like the Sanderson sisters with these seriously cute Hocus Pocus costumes. Make your own from vintage dresses in purple, orange and green, or buy the costumes from Spirit Halloween's newest Hocus Pocus collection. Don't forget the most important part—the classic wigs.

Avocado Toast

Make this Avocado Toast couples costume from cardboard! Cut foamboard or cardboard in the shapes of your favorite avocado toast toppings and use craft paint to bring your creations to life. Make it an adults-only costume or get the whole family involved. We're totally obsessed with the avocado costume as a maternity costume idea too. You can get the full instructions from hello, Wonderful.

Frida Kahlo Costume

According to Pinterest's Pinfrights report, searches for Frida Kahlo are rising—which makes this adult costume idea right on trend this year. Go solo, or recruit a friend to dress as a piece of art to complete this iconic look. Plus, making this costume is easy. Pair a plain dress with bold lipstick and a flower crown of faux red and orange blooms. We're loving this look!

Incredibles Costumes

This family costume idea is truly incredible—see what we did there? This fun costume idea based on Disney's The Incredibles is seriously squad goals! Make it into a fun couple's costume, or get the family involved by dressing the kids up as the children from the series. Make the costume yourself by pairing a red bodysuit with black underpants and black legwarmers, or buy a costume set, like this Mrs. Incredible costume, $24.26, from Amazon.

Circus-Inspired Costumes

Turn your gang into a traveling circus this Halloween. These circus costumes are seriously so easy to make yourself with items you probably already have in your closet. Make a basic costume by pairing khaki pants with a button-down and add suspenders and a newsboy hat. Or, get creative by mixing black and white stripes with fun fabrics and patterns and add mime makeup. We're totally obsessed with the addition of the little lion in this photo!

All you need to wear one this Halloween is a neon pink wig with aviator sunglasses, combat boots, a long sleeve shirt, tight-fitting pants like leggings in a black, blue, or purple, boots, and a unicorn-and-rainbow baby tee on top. Make your own DIY Fortnite costume, or buy a Brite Bomber costume from Spirit Halloween.
