Time is ticking down to find a Halloween costume that doesn’t suck. The longer you wait, the more Halloween parties you will have been invited to with absolutely nothing to wear. Now, while nothing is likely scarier than going as yourself, we know you want a topical, recognizable Halloween costume that doesn’t look totally last minute.
That’s why we sifted through Amazon to find you easy, last-minute TV character costumes that most likely everyone will be able to recognize. We’ve found looks from HBO’s Game of Thrones, Amazon’s Fleabag, Netflix’s Stranger Things and more. Many of these looks are on Amazon Prime so if you have that feature, this costume can be at your house in as little as two days. You’re welcome.
This Riverdale look inspired by the school's cheerleaders' practice uniforms seems like it would make for a super comfortable Halloween costume. If you were going as a particular cheerleader... say Cheryl Blossom, all you'd need is some red lipstick and a high ponytail to top it off.
Stranger Things: 'Scoops Ahoy' Steve
Stranger Things: 'Scoops Ahoy' Robin
If you're looking for a last minute couples costume, being Robin and Steve is not a bad idea. Maybe they're not actually love interests, but they're a duo whether the characters like it or not. Plus, who wouldn't want to wear matching sailor hats? Cute!
Stranger Things: 'Makeover' Eleven
While it's not the most recognizable version of Eleven, that's so two seasons ago. The newly made-over Eleven is wearing a super awesome '80s romper that if you didn't want to wear just as a costume, you could probably get away with incorporating into your wardrobe.
This iconic character costume can be purchased on Amazon. While you will definitely stand out in this, you will also probably be pretty warm–a great choice if you live somewhere that's going to be a bit chilly Halloween weekend.
So you may have to explain your Fleabag costume to people who have never seen the show, but we guarantee that Phoebe Waller-Bridge fans will flip over your look. Who knows, you might even meet someone dressed as the hot priest!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Midge Maisel
While a complete Midge Maisel costume is not being sold on Amazon, the rest of her look is fairly simple to cobble together. All you need is a really great '50s dress to steal the show. We recommend throwing on some heels, curling the ends of your hair, and adding a red or pink lip.
Game of Thrones: Jon Snow
Want to tell the world you know nothing? Then this Jon Snow costume is for you. You can wear it no matter your gender. If you don't feel like pairing it with a wig, you could just as easily say you're a member of The Night's Watch.
Game of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen
You're going to need the wig to be Daenerys. Platinum blonde hair is totally her thing. Unfortunately, Amazon does not sell the wig with any of the dresses and you'll have to purchase these pieces separately. However, that means you can pick the best wig and outfit for whatever version of Daenerys you're trying to be. We've selected two that we think are pretty good.
The Office: Dwight
Thanks to Netflix, The Office is still one of the most popular TV series despite the fact that it ended in 2013. If it's your favorite show ever, you should definitely go as its most recognizable character, Dwight Schrute. Extra points if you walk around quoting the show all night.
