by Aarohi Roy

2020 virtual Halloween parties are going to be an adventure! We’re getting all dressed up and will break into our forgotten makeup kits after ages. But the question remains, how to create looks that’ll stand out without spending too much on this one, specific occasion.

We’re with you. We’re diving into our own wardrobes and the coolest versatile options online that will make awesome costumes when paired and styled right! Here’s a list of easy to create costumes with handy clothing. What will your look be?

1. Minion

Who doesn’t like these adorable tiny little henchmen working for the smartest monsters ever? If you want to look like these fictional creatures and love to babble senseless words all night long, here’s a fine look for you. Get a bright yellow hoodie with blue denim dungarees and grab a pair of grey swimming goggles!

2. Wednesday Adam

A cult classic, and favoured by all, the Addams Family has always been a Halloween go-to. Wednesday is easy to look-like and if perfect for those who relate to her personality – pale, grim & fascinated by all things dark. All you need is a full-sleeved black dress and white diy paper-collars, braid your hair in two low plaits and you’re good go to.

3. Kim Possible

Let’s be honest – we’ve always wanted to be her, a teenager moonlighting as a crime fighter! Kim Possible’s look is simple and easily achievable. Wear a tight black crop top with olive green cargo or harem pants. Finish the look with a pair of dark, solid gloves either in black or blue. Add a maroon lip color and prepare to fight evil.

4. Queen of Hearts

The hottest of all villains, the Queen of Hearts has been the dark and feisty character we all (hate to) love. While the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ look is quite dramatic, you can go for a simpler version with a red and brazen midi dress, carrying a wand with a heart, an elaborate tiara and a heart shaped pout! Wink, wink.

5. Cruella Deville

The most devious of all villains, Cruelle Deville was also extremely fashionable. Her character is the masterpiece of all monochrome costumes. So, if you’re ready to paint half of your hair white or use a half ‘n’ half wig, this one’s for you. Instead of opting for fur, you can go for a trendy colour-blocked black and white outfit. Don’t forget a sleek straw pipe.

6. Harley Quinn

Queen of pop colors and the most loved villain of the DC Universe, Harley Quinn is all about sass. You can easily pull off her look with a colorblocked jacket worn over a multi-colored crop tee and red shorts. If you have roller skates and a baseball bat at home, even better! You can try coloring your hair with temporary colors too.
