Elle Woods’ Bunny Costume From Legally Blonde

Remember the scene in Legally Blonde when Elle Woods struts into a Harvard Law party wearing a very sultry bunny costume, only to find out it wasn’t a costume party at all? It was a major turning point for Elle and, armed with her best lines from the movie, it could make for a big night for you too. Pair this corset from with pink bunny ears and platform pumps — “What, like it’s hard?” — and you’ll make Warner Huntington III wish he never let you go.

A Pink Lady From Grease

Every Halloween, at least one person at every party dresses up as Sandra Dee "Sandy" Olsson, complete with leather pants, red heels, and a curly wig. If you’re obsessed with Grease but want to stand out, try being a Pink Lady. They’re equally essential to the plot of Grease and the costume is much more low-key. All you need is a pink satin bomber jacket and an ascot if you’re feeling frisky.

Glinda The Good Witch From The Wizard Of Oz

If painting your face green and going the Wicked Witch route isn’t quite your speed, why not go for Glinda? She’s a gorgeous, lovable, character and her costume is relatively easy to pull off if you buy a full costume set like this one from Amazon.

One Of The Plastics From Mean Girls

Whether you’re a Cady, a Gretchen, a Karen, or queen Regina herself, dressing up as one of the Plastics from Mean Girls is a costume that everyone will appreciate. This iconic Regina George shirt is the perfect centerpiece for a Mean Girls-inspired Halloween costume. Combine it with a pink cardigan and you’ll be all set for October 31.

Princess Aurora From Sleeping Beauty

Disney princess costumes are always a reliable choice and Princess Aurora’s pink-to-blue dress transformation is arguably one of the most recognizable scenes in Disney’s animation history. Pair this dress with a blonde wig and gold crown for big princess energy.

Hermione Granger At The Yule Ball

You don’t need to wear a set of Gryffindor robes to show off your Hogwarts school spirit for Halloween. Instead, go for something a bit more niche with this Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire deep-cut costume that true Harry Potter stans will appreciate. Her night in this gorgeous Yule Ball gown was one of the only moments Hermione ever really got to go glam so why not celebrate it?

Lorelei Lee From Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Between Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala homage to Marilyn Monroe and the upcoming Netflix bio-drama Blonde, you can bet there will be more than a few Monroes running around this Halloween. To stand out in a sea of similar ‘fits, aim for a singular role rather than a general vibe. Channel your inner Lorelei Lee from the classic film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in this curve-hugging costume.

Carrie White From Carrie
