DRESS AS YOUR FAVORITE NETFLIX CHARACTER
Whether you’re an avid Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan or you prefer sitting down with a cup of tea and a biscuit to watch Orange Is The New Black, why not make a unique Halloween costume out of your fav character from a Netflix series.
Heck, you could even dress up as a Netflix comedian. Ali Wong Baby Cobra anybody?!
DRESS AS YOUR FAVORITE MEME
Got a fav meme? Why not rock it as a unique Halloween costume this year?
Whether you’re going to be sipping tea as Kermit or you’re going to make a dress out of tide pods… you’ll definitely be the life of the party!
DRESS AS A REAL-LIFE PUN
We have to admit, the team over at Good House Keeping have a pretty flipp’n fantastic list of pun-worthy and unique Halloween costumes that you could try out this year.
Some of our favorites include:
- ✔ The ‘Bread Winner’ (Fake Medals + Sports Gear + 2-4 loaves of bread)
- ✔ Holy Guacamole (Angel Halo + Green Shirt + Print-Outs of Avocado + Tape)
- ✔ Blessing in Disguise (Fake Moustache + Fake Glasses + Shirt with ‘Blessing’ on it)
DRESS AS A CHARACTER FROM AMERICAN HORROR STORY
Haven’t watched American Horror Story yet? ERR MA GERRRD!
I freak’n love this series on Netflix so I’d hands down be wanting to dress as a character from one of the many creepy seasons. Personally, I think I’d be opting for a costume from AHS Freak Show or Hotel.
What season do YOU like the most?
DRESS AS YOUR FAVORITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM
Want to make your friends laugh-react in real life?
Why not get creative this year and dress up as your fav social media platform – y’know, get the branding colors down and then print out some of the most iconic ‘things’ about the platform from the past year to glue-gun to the colored clothes.
It could be the crazy Instagram makeup trends (if you choose to dress up as the ‘gram) or it could be Facebook’s… erm… privacy issues?
(errrrk… you didn’t hear it from us!…)

DRESS AS AN UBER CAR
I mean… this one is a bit out-of-the-box, but it definitely falls into the category of ‘unique Halloween costumes’ so we’ll take it!
Grab a big cardboard box, paint it whatever color you like, and then print off a photo of the uber logo (What is it again? Oh yeah…) and stick it on the front.
Add some straps so you can wear the box over your outfit and voila. You’re an uber.
DRESS AS YOUR FAV SNACK FOOD
Sweet or salty? It’s up to you!
Personally, I’d be aiming to dress up as a giant M&M because my name starts with an ‘M’ and I think that is cleverrrr… but you could also dress up as Katy Perry did as a human-sized cheeto.

DRESS AS FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
Fun fact: paint sample cards are free.
Stock up on some grey paint samples (make sure you have 50 different shades!) and stick them to a top and voila. You are fifty shades of grey.
DRESS AS YOUR FAV YOUTUBER
Got a fav YouTuber (or one you think is worthy of dressing up as THIS Halloween?) well, why not dress up like them this year?
Heck, you could even print out a massive screengrab of their YouTube channel and cut out the main channel video rectangle and take that with you to the party so you can stick your face through it to get the message across.
Woop Woop! Double points for being crafty.
(COUPLE COSTUME): DRESS AS ‘NETFLIX + CHILL’
I mean, we swear this blog isn’t sponsored by Netflix.
(It could be though, pretty please Netflix?!)
If you’re in a loving couple and want some unique Halloween costumes for both of you, why not have one of you dress up as Netflix (red shirt + Netflix logo stickied on) and Chill (blue shirt + snowflake emoji stickied on).
DRESS AS YOUR FAV EMOJI
Whether you want to be a questionable eggplant emoji or a laughter-inducing poo emoji… you can make your dreams come true this Halloween!
