216 Creative Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner and it’s about that time of the year when we are getting all crazed and creative while pumping those brain cells hard to come up with the coolest costumes. But the good news is that the best inspiration always comes from the things around us.

And from the year we’ve had so far, it seems like this Halloween will be the party of the century. Think of COVID deniers, anti-vax “Karens” callin’ corporate, a trash bag that represents GOT’s final season, and many more out-of-the-box ideas that have been packed into this prep list by Bored Panda. And even though the costume winner is more or less obvious—Steve Martin, where are you?—we suspect the grey hair paint and plastic mini flies will be flying off the shelves this year.

#27 Mermaid On Wheels

Since becoming a wheelchair user 3 years ago I wanted to dress up as a mermaid, because I figure on land they would use wheelchairs too. Finally got the chance at a Halloween party. It took around 3 hours to do my makeup – my disability affects my fine motor skills so it was a bit tricky! I was happy with how it turned out though and loved being a mermaid for a night.
