While Halloween is known as the spooky season, there are no rules when it comes to dressing up for the occasion. If you’d rather be sweet than scary this year, we’ve got plenty of great ideas to help you stand out from the crowd.
From Disney characters to fantasy creatures, scroll on for some adorable Halloween costume inspiration.
1. Sailor Moon
For fans of manga and anime, a Sailor Moon costume is an absolute no-brainer. The warrior is as cute as she is kick-ass, making her the perfect muse this Halloween.
3. The Powerpuff Girls
If you're looking for an adorable costume theme for you and your friends, The Powerpuff Girls are the way to go. Made from sugar, spice and everything nice, this crime-fighting trio is adorable, hardcore and super sassy to boot.
From Tinkerbell to Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, there are plenty of famous fairies to get you inspired this Halloween. If you'd rather make your own costume, you can also pop a pair of wings on your favourite outfit and head straight out the door.
Like Alice in Wonderland, Dorothy is a cutesy costume that can be worn at any age. The outfit also works both on its own and in a group setting with your other Wizard of Oz-inspired pals.
9. Black cat
The black cat is a classic Halloween costume for a good reason. Not only is it easy to pull together, but it can be as cute, sexy, creepy or creative as you want it to be. It all comes down to your choice of outfit and makeup look.
11. Cher or Dionne Clueless
Avoid being a fashion victim this All Hallow's Eve and nab yourself an iconic Clueless-inspired outfit. Cher and Dionne's plaid skirt suits are the most instantly recognisable costumes, but there's plenty of outfit inspiration to be found throughout the movie.
13. Snow White
As one of the purest Disney princesses, Snow White is a great costume choice for those looking for something that isn't scary or sexy. If you don't want to buy a costume, you can also easily make your own with a blue top, yellow skirt and red headband.
This one might have been done to death, but it's pretty, sparkly and fun, making it a costume classic. Keep things simple with a crop top and tail or go all out with some killer eye makeup and ocean-inspired accessories.
Simple, yet effective, a cowgirl costume has the added benefit of being super comfortable to wear. Plus it will give you a great excuse to rock those new cowboy boots you picked up earlier in the year.
