Choosing an outfit for Halloween is hard enough, but that challenge becomes even harder when you’re looking for costumes in a specific color. Deciding on a pop culture Halloween costume or a Halloween costume that goes with your hair color is easy, but the choices narrow if you want your costume in, say, a specific shade of lavender, violet, or aubergine. That said, you should follow your heart wherever it leads during spooky season, even if every path takes you straight to the same color palette. For Halloween 2022, stop racking your brain for the perfect purple Halloween costume and just use this list instead.

Whether you’re looking for modern-day inspiration from this year’s most viral TV shows — I’m not talking just about Euphoria, but I’m not not talking about Euphoria — or prefer to throw it way back to beloved characters from yesteryear’s books and movies like Scooby Doo and Alice In Wonderland, these 10 purple Halloween costumes will have you ready for spooky season in no time. As always, there are plenty of easy costumes to choose from along with some more complicated ensembles for folks who fall more on the Heidi Klum end of the Halloween costume dedication spectrum.

Daphne Blake from Scooby Doo

Dressing up as Scooby Doo’s main fashionista is a stylish and nostalgic choice for Halloween. Pair this outfit with a green necktie and purple headband for a complete look. Daphne from Scooby Doo also works as a group costume if you’ve got a group chat full of meddling kids who are game to dress up as the rest of the Mystery Gang.

The Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Magic mirror on the wall, who’s the most chilling of them all? This maxi gown is the perfect base for an Evil Queen costume. If you love a big Halloween look, you could add a cloak, crown, and looking glass. If you’re more low-key, all you really need to carry around is a poison apple. Try this one out if you’re ready to be a villain this Halloween.

The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland

Who says a Halloween costume can’t be a comfy onesie? This pink and purple striped onesie is perfect for a one-and-done take on Lewis Caroll’s unforgettable feline. All you need to complete the ensemble is as much (or as little) makeup as you’d like and a mischievous grin!

Anne Wheeler from The Greatest Showman

Channel your inner Zendaya with this costume based on the trapeze artist the Euphoria star played in The Greatest Showman. To complete the Anne Wheeler look, add a pink wig, silver boots, and all the flexibility you can muster.

Maddy from Euphoria

Speaking of Zendaya, why not take a stab at fan-favorite Euphoria character Maddy Perez? Her iconic carnival outfit from Season 1 can be replicated with this crop top and flare pant set from MakeMeChic. Just make sure to pair it with an ultra-glam makeup look.

Ursula from The Little Mermaid

Meg from Hercules

Who doesn’t love a Halloween costume that can be worn again in the future?

To complete your Meg costume, be sure to tie your hair up in a high pony and step into some gladiator sandals.

Rapunzel from Tangled

Another lovable Disney princess, Rapunzel is also a fan of purple. All you need to add to this Tangled-themed dress is the longest blonde wig you can get your hands on. If you’re a major Disney fan, you could carry around a few paint brushes and a cast-iron skillet.
