Here are the top Halloween costumes for best friends for Halloween 2021
1. SPICE GIRLS
Friendship lasts forever and so will everyone talking about this costume! Take a trip down memory lane and be the iconic British Spice Girls band.
Channel your girl power and start looking through pics of all their iconic 90s red-carpet outfits. To make the look pop, here is some costume inspiration.
Sporty spice: Athletic and energetic. Try a cute ponytail with a scrunchie or two braids, keeping it simple and sporty. Find some cute low-rise bottoms and a crop top to complete the look.
Ginger spice: Fiery and bold. Try a hot red wig and go bigger by adding blonde clip-in highlights for some1990's chunky highlights to complete this look. With that red hair, an all-red outfit, and even a red boa, you will feel the Ginger spice fire!
Posh spice: Shy, sassy & fashion-forward. Go for a sleek black dress and some 90s block heels or platforms! For the hair, try out short black Halloween wigs or straighten your natural hair for the costume.
Scary spice: Bold, loud, and never a dull moment! Go big and curly for Scary spice. Try mini curls with a small hair wand, or go for her iconic space buns. Pair it with a cheetah or shimmery gold outfit.
2. SQUID GAME
Squid Game has been all the talk and one of Netflix's most popular shows EVER. No surprise that it would also be a hot Halloween costume pick. If your squad is a fan of Squid Game and feeling bold this Halloween, go for it.
Players: Create the look with a green or teal matching jumpsuit, white tshirt and white shoes. If you DIY it, number stickers or iron-on numbers to recreate the player's number.
Guards: If you want to be a guard, find any dark-pink matching outfit and a mask to cover your face (quickly done with a black mask and white paint for the shapes).
"Red light, green light" animatronic doll: Re-create the doll by wearing any yellow top and orange dress or skirt, white knee-high socks and black maryjanes. For the ultimate doll hairdo, put your hair in two pigtails or style some space buns. If you want to go all out, go for a short black or brown wig and some clip-in bangs.
Want to add a little more glam to it? Turn these looks into hot costumes with these dupes:
- Dresses, skirts, and biker shorts that are green or pink
- Black sunglasses instead of a mask for a guard with black baseball caps and white sharpie for the symbols and player numbers
- Pink or green HI-LITES
- Makeup, nails, and black belts for accessories
