Attention all gals and ghouls: the month of October has arrived, which means that spooky season is officially in full swing.

The entire month leads up to our favorite holiday of all – Halloween. And if you’re anything like us, you love to dress up, whether it’s for a costume party or trick or treating with the kiddos.

While we have no doubt the true Halloween-heads already had a great costume picked out well in advance, we came up with a few pop culture inspo getups for the busy bees who need a last-minute disguise!

The Sanderson Sisters


With the arrival of the long-awaited Hocus Pocus sequel, this is the number one pick on our list. Grab two of your pals and abracadabra yourselves into Winifred, Sarah, and Mary.

Wednesday Addams


They’re creepy and they’re kooky 

Mysterious and spooky

They’re altogether ooky

The Addams Family

*snap snap*

Conjure up the OG goth girl vibe as Wednesday Addams.

Scarlet Witch


Put a spell on everyone by showing up as the Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff.

Princess Rhaenyra


House of the Dragon is the hottest show on TV, so there are a lot of characters to choose from, but we stan Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, future queen of Westeros, dragonrider and all around bad bitch.

Emily in Paris


Create a statement-making outfit like the ones in Emily in Paris to highlight your sense of style.



Dress to the nines in your Bridgerton finest to be the belle of the ball.

Loretta and Dash from 'The Lost City'


The ideal couple’s outfit? Dash and Loretta from The Lost City.



The fourth (and best, IMO) season of Stranger Things dropped this year, so tip your hat to the Upside Down by dressing up as the heroic Eleven.

Maxine from 'X'


Looking for a more risqué costume? You could go full slasher chic as Mia Goth’s character Maxine in X. Or you could go homestead homicidal as her prequel character Pearl.

Beth Dutton and Rip Wheeler


At Monet, we are Yellowstone devotees, so in the spirit of its fifth season airing in November, show up to the party as the IT couple, newlyweds Beth Dutton and Rip Wheeler.

Jane Foster


OK, so you may not have time to get ripped arms for this costume, but you can still pull it off! Be the ultimate ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who used to date Thor. Then she turns into the mighty Thor, but no more spoilers. Just grab a helmet and hammer and be a Norse God for the night.

Mirabel from 'Encanto'


Make your night magical by turning up as the main character of Disney’s animated feature film Encanto, Mirabel Madrigal.
