Aries Halloween Costume

Aries are known to be fierce, independent, headstrong, and, occasionally, a tad bit impulsive. As the warrior of the star signs, the zodiac costume for an Aries needs to reflect their courageous and energetic personality. An all-pink ensemble will immediately transform you into everyone’s favorite lawyer: Elle Woods. Need more inspo on which fierce figure you’d like to channel for Halloween this year? Consider California’s athletes, musicians, and leaders.

Taurus Halloween Costume

The Taurus are known for their passion, dependability, elegance, and goal-oriented approach to life. They have a taste for the finer things in life and are always dressed to impress. Therefore, Taurus is the sign most likely to go above and beyond to come in a killer ensemble. This zodiac’s Halloween costume is never a last-minute thought, and we think going as something or someone that requires you to dress up from head to toe would be the perfect embodiment of that. Think Maleficent or any other Disney villain, prince, or princess. If we’re being honest, the villains are always dressed best. 

The Olsen twins are as cool as the 90s. Name a more iconic duo than Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Take your time, we're waiting.

Gemini Halloween Costume

Hey Gemini, have you decided which one of the 10 parties you’re invited to you’re going to attend this year? As the most social and enthusiastic of the signs, Gemini needs a Halloween costume that’ll impress without getting in the way of having a good time. After all, the queen of Halloween Heidi Klum is a Gemini and she never misses the mark. You’re the sign that’s most likely to enjoy dressing up in a group costume, so depending on the size of your squad, you can either go as the ghostbusters, kids from Stranger Things, or even the Olsen Twins!

Nothing beats being comfy and cool on Halloween night. When ghouls and vampires roam the streets, you'll be cruisin' around in comfort.

Cancer Halloween Costume

For Cancer, comfort is key. High heels, tight corsets, uncomfortable lenses, and big hair is a total no-go when it comes to picking out a Halloween costume for this zodiac. Embrace your sensitive side and pick out a cool and cozy look by donning something that’s easy to put together like an animal onesie or an orange prison jumpsuit. 

You know you're the star of the show. You love the spotlight. Why not be a diva on All Hallows' Eve?

Leo Halloween Costume

Leos live for a good statement costume. Not ones to share the spotlight easily, people with this star sign tend to be naturally charismatic and confident with a tendency to liven up every room they enter. Why not utilize your natural star power and go as your favorite Californian starlet or figure in history? Think Madonna, Dua Lipa, Kylie Jenner, or if you’d rather a more political figure, Barack Obama—you’ll feel right at home in your Halloween zodiac look.

Virgo Halloween Costume

As a detail-oriented Virgo, you probably have your Halloween costume picked out months in advance. We bet your Virgo Halloween costume will be anything but run-of-the-mill—even though you’re not asking, by the off chance you need further inspo, we recommend going as the ultimate Virgo herself, Queen Bey! Recreate one of Beyonce’s most recognizable looks (perhaps Coachella 2018?) and you have yourself a definite head-turner.

Libra Halloween Costume

As the sign of harmony and balance, Libras pull off effortlessly graceful looks like no other. Suckers for a good pop culture reference, this zodiac’s Halloween costume needs to be relevant without being basic. Why not recreate a DIY version of your favorite Met Gala Look from September? Channel Audrey Hepburn a la Kendall Jenner, or classic Hollywood head-turner similar to Barbie Ferreira’s beaded dress. This zodiac costume might take a little while to put together, but oh boy, will it be worth it.

Scorpios reign supreme on Halloween. Don your fangs, put on your bat wings, and scare all the neighborhood children into running away from you.

Scorpio Halloween Costume

It’s your season Scorpios—the kings and queens of mystery and darkness! Embrace your dark and inquisitive side and lean into Halloween’s spookier side this year. Craft the perfect Scorpio Halloween costume by putting your take on classically spooky suits. Ghosts, vampires, skeletons, and witches are all options on the table, and they never go out of style!

When it comes to Sagittarians, out-of-the-box is the name of the game. Surprise them all with an unexpected anti-hero costume.

Sagittarius Halloween Costume

Adventurous, optimistic, and filled with energy, people with their sun in Sagittarius love trying new things and getting into new adventures. Because we know you like having all the options in the world, we chose not one, but three Halloween costumes for your zodiac. The most Sagittarian superhero (or antihero) we can think of is Deadpool. Prefer a less obvious film reference? Lady Bird from Greta Gerwig’s famous film of the same name has a wanderlust-y, overzealous personality that’s so very Sagittarius. Better yet, channel your inner pop diva, rock a mullet, and go as another fellow Sagittarius, Miley Cyrus!

The best time to make a statement is now. Dress up as the figure you admire most and you won't have to say anything to see who agrees with you.

Capricorn Halloween Costume

Capricorns are practical; they don’t like unnecessary frills and fuss. But, make no mistake, they are anything but boring. Stay true to your identity and minimalist sensibilities by making your Capricorn Halloween costume all about honoring figures you look up to. For example, you can choose a statement collar and fabulous pair of earrings to channel the late and honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Plus, you’ll be able to re-wear the items that make your costume later on as well—you won’t have anything extra catching dust in your closet.

Aquarius Halloween Costume

Aquarius are creative, inventive, and unapologetically themselves. While you don’t shy away from making a statement with your wardrobe in your everyday life (hello? Harry Styles is an Aquarius), your Halloween look goes above and beyond every year, making people not only look twice but also think twice. A perfect Aquarius Halloween costume would be something that starts a conversation; think about turning a concept into a costume. You can address the issue of catcalling by donning a pair of cat ears and carrying around a telephone, or maybe print a dollar bill on a large cardboard cutout and cut out the face to be the first woman on the dollar bill. Seriously, what happened to the promise of putting Harriett Tubman on the 20-dollar bill?

All those YouTube makeup tutorials you watched have finally come in handy. Show off your skills and wow your friends with your insane makeup look.

Pisces Halloween Costume

Pisces are artistic, dreamy, and a tad bit dramatic. Since Halloween is the perfect time to go all out, you can channel all the drama through your Halloween zodiac costume and be met with praise instead of judgment. If you’re going to a party with your friends, we suggest dressing up as the Spice Girls. Prefer not to share the spotlight? Put your famous artistic skills to good use and pull off an elaborately illusionary makeup look like only you can—your favorite California influencers will definitely inspire you in that department.
