HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR BEST FRIENDS

1. Cowgirls

Cowgirl costumes will never get old. I love the way these girls did their cowgirl costumes by adding the pink, extra girly elements, and cow print skirts!

I found the perfect cow print skirt on Amazon if you’re looking to recreate this look with your best friends. Plus, you can get a pink fluffy crop top and pink or straw cowboy hat on Amazon as well.

Plus, makeup is the cherry on top to these costumes. You can style your makeup however you want to either make this costume dressier or more understated!

2. Wicked Costume

With the new Wicked movie coming on, I couldn’t NOT include a beautiful Wicked costume idea! These Wicked costumes are SO CUTE!

You can get similar dresses and accessories on Amazon and easily recreate these costumes.

3. Joker

Another extremely ICONIC movie that is coming out/came out (depending on when you are reading this ;)) is the new Joker movie!

What’s more trendy and iconic than being the Joker for Halloween 2024?!

4. Mermaids

These mermaid Halloween costumes are the best Halloween costumes for best friends if you want to match perfectly (and look gorgeous while doing it).

Dressing up as a shark attack for Halloween is extremely fun!

Mainly because you can play with your makeup and try to create fake wounds, as well as wear these cute shark attack bodysuits that are great for adding some gore without getting too intense.

I found this awesome shark bodysuit on Amazon, which you can pair with a short gray mini skirt, and add some fake blood to recreate this costume perfectly.

8. Butterflies

These sequin skirts also come in several colors so you can match the top you chose.

Then, finish off your look with some butterfly hair clips and the makeup of your choice!

I love themed Halloween costumes for best friends because you can take creative liberty and make them so cute.

Opposite things like fire and ice are often the best Halloween costume ideas!
