You had all year to prepare and yet you're still looking for a last-minute Halloween costume? We're kidding, we get you.
Most of us are already cooped up in our homes 24/7 dressed in loungewear, so the spooky szn is such a great opportunity to live out your dream of being your favorite character or actress in real life. But just because we're less than a week away from Halloween, doesn't mean you'll end up showing to a (virtual) party without a costume, right?
You don't have to look elsewhere because inspo is literally everywhere—from your favorite movie, TV show, or even red carpet outfit! Whether you're looking for a scary or clever costume, you're sure to find one.
Ahead, here are our predictions for what are going to be the most popular Halloween costumes of the year. We promise you'll turn heads at every party you step foot in (or log in) wearing any of these looks that broke the internet this 2021.
1. Squid Game characters
In 2017, someone dressed up as a robber from Money Heist at almost every party. And in 2021, we can already tell Squid Game costumes are gonna be a hit. In fact, we've already seen several Player 067 transformations, including influencers Raiza Contawi and Chelsea Robato, and TikToker Janio Cañazares.
If you want to go as one of the players, we found a store in Lazada that sells the full set player outfit, there's also the red jumpsuit costume complete with the mask, gloves, and belt if you want to go as one of the guards. Or for the little ones, there's the orange and yellow dress worn by the doll in the "Red Light, Green Light" episode that you can get from Shopee.
2. Olivia Rodrigo's Sour cover album
There's no denying that Olivia Rodrigo is one of the fastest rising pop singers of this year. So for Halloween, we wanna look just like her. But there's just so much looks that we can't wait to replicate—there's the cheerleading uniform from her good 4 u music video, her pink prom dress with runny mascara for Sour Prom, and of course, her cover album for Sour.
To cop the last one, just get a light pink fuzzy tank top, a teal plaid skirt, lots of rings and necklaces, and style your hair into waves. Add in stickers all over your face, and you have one of the most recognized looks of 2021.
3. Kim Kardashian at the 2021 Met Gala
Is it a shadow? A mannequin? Or a "Women" bathroom sign? We don't know either, but if you dare to be (literally) unrecognizable, what better costume to sport than Kim Kardashian's Met Gala 2021 Balenciaga outfit?
4. Hidilyn Diaz
Lest we forget: The woman who brought pride to our country for winning the first Olympic gold medal. As an ode to Hidilyn Diaz, why don't you dress up like her? Search your gym clothes for tight-fitting blue tank top and tights, wrist wraps, and knee pads. Don't forget your improvised gold medal!
5. Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) and Megan Fox
Honestly, we're torn between going as Megan Fox and MGK or new BFFs Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian. If you're coupled up, maybe you'd want to go as the former pair wearing their iconic MTV VMA 2021 looks: a barely there dress for her and a shiny red pant and suit—with matching black tongue if you dare—for him.
Bonus: Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian
Or if you and your bestie want to channel your inner punk rock girlfriends, go ahead and bring out your sexiest fits! Bonus points if you can drag your partners to go as your MGK and Travis Barker!
