Best Friend Halloween Costumes: Creative Ideas for an Unforgettable Appearance
Two heads are always better than one – especially when it comes to planning a Halloween costume. However, ghosts, bloody victims, or witches are not exactly the most creative ideas, but that’s why we’re here for you. We’ve gathered plenty of inspiration for you, which will make you the star of any party, we promise! And the best part? It doesn’t even have to be an expensive costume – you probably already have everything you need for most looks!
The Grady Twins from The Shining
The Grady twins are iconic characters from one of the most critically acclaimed horror movies of all time – The Shining. All you need for the cool look are two blue dresses, a pastel pink ribbon for a belt, and plain white sneakers. Add a touch of spookiness to the look with smokey eye makeup, and you’re done!
Zombie Bride and Groom
We know – dressing up as a zombie for Halloween is nothing groundbreaking. But if you and your best friend appear as a zombie bride and groom, you will immediately cause a stir! For the bridal outfit, you’re going to need a white mini dress or a corset paired with a skirt, a garter, stockings, and a bouquet (of course). For the lady groom wear either a black mini dress or corset with shorts, knee-high boots, a bow tie, and an optional top hat. Finish off the looks with zombie makeup, and you’re ready to say ‘YES’!
