10 Costume Ideas for Halloween 2022

Have you conveniently waited until the last minute to put together your Halloween costume? Struggling to figure out what to be? It’s okay; we are all in the same boat — choosing at the last minute adds some flare to your outfit (or that’s what we tell ourselves). Fear not, we are here to help. Here’s our list of the best costume ideas for 2022.

  1. Lexi Howard from Euphoria

Euphoria has always been a good show, but let’s be honest, season 2 made it a great show. And Lexi Howard was at the center of it all. The once soft-spoken younger sister to popular older sister, Cassie, put on a school production so exhilarating that people would remember her as the best Howard in school. Deep down inside, we all want to be Lexi and make our mark on the world. We’re not saying do it the same way she did, but it’s not a bad idea to dress up like her as a start.

2. Chef Sydney Adamu from The Bear
Do you consider yourself a bit of a spitfire? Love cooking? Why not dress up as Chef Sydney from Hulu’s The Bear? The costume is simple and identifiable. All you need is a blue apron, a white shirt, white Birkenstocks, and a bandana. Done and done.

3. Maddy Perez From Euphoria

Yes, the Emmy award-winning show Euphoria is based around the character Rue and her struggles with drug addiction; however, Maddy has shown repeatedly that she is THEE “IT” GIRL. Maddy is the epitome of exerting main character energy from her fashionable outfits to her chic makeup to her bada** attitude. Tap into your inner main character this Halloween using Maddy as the inspiration.

8. Anna Delvey from Inventing Anna
There’s no better “fake it till you make it” story than that of Anna Delvey, as shown in Netflix’s limited series Inventing Anna. Throughout the series, you either loved her or hated her, but let’s be honest, most of us wanted to be her at one point or another. This is the holiday of pretending, so why not act like an heiress for the day?

9. Michael Myers
Speaking of serial killers, If you want more of an on-brand costume this year, go as Michael Myers. With the new Halloween Ends movie now in theaters, Michael Myers is back in the public eye. I mean, it’s Halloween, can you really go wrong dressing as a horror movie character? We think not.

10. Max Mayfield From Stranger Things
Yes, sure we all love Stranger Things and are amped every time Netflix releases a new season. Who doesn’t like a good binge? This summer, the trio used Kate Bush’s “Running Up The Hill” cassette to grab the attention of their friend Max, who was under some sort of hypnosis. It became the meme of all memes — people replacing the scene music with the song of their choice. Dress like Max in this scene and show the world the song that will snap you back to reality.
