Halloween costume ideas: Often, the best Halloween costume ideas are those that give a humorous nod to the year so far. Even though we love easy DIY costumes, sexy costumes, and couples costumes, sometimes we want something a little more timely. You’ve come to the right place if you’re feeling that Halloween vibe.
The internet is rife with Halloween costume inspiration, from popular TV shows and movies (including Stranger Things, Bridgerton, and Euphoria) to viral red carpet outfits (who can forget Blake Lively’s Met Gala look?) and memes (Kendall Jenner’s cucumber encounter, need we say more? ).
These Halloween costume ideas are inspired by the most memorable moments of 2022.
Max from Stranger Things
You’ve got everything you need for a Stranger Things costume if you have an ’80s sports jacket and over-ear headphones. It’s entirely up to you if you sing Kate Bush’s ‘Running up that Hill’ all night long.

Barbie and Ken
Julia Fox sums up 2022 better than anyone else. It’s hard not to fall in love with her viral video ‘uncah jahmz’ or her smoky fox eye. What’s the best part? You can say “thank you, I actually did it myself” when people compliment your fitness.
Blake Lively at the Met Gala
Embrace Blake Lively’s Statue of Liberty tribute with a bronze and aqua arrangement to rival the Met Gala. A charity shop maxi dress can be transformed with long gloves and bronze body paint.
If you still remember the Y2K fashion of East Highland High School, why not pay homage to one of the show’s main characters? For us, Maddy’s cut-out dresses are the best.
Is there someone who understands assignments every time? Lizzo. Wear a bright pink shirt, metallic trousers, and flamboyant feathered coat like the About Damn Time hitmaker at Coachella. You get bonus points if you can find your own Harry Styles.
