5 super easy halloween outfit ideas inspired by TV shows

Our fave shows on Netflix and Now TV are a treasure trove of cool Halloween inspiration, so we’ve picked out five costumes that will take you less than 10 minutes to make. Which leaves more time to focus on the most important bit of Halloween – the party!

Handmaid’s tale

Set in a dystopian society that treats women as property, the ‘Handmaids’ of this US show are Dressed only in red and white. Passing for a citizen of Gilead is easy – all you need is a red hoodie and a curved piece of white card tied around your head. No make-up needed – unless you’re channeling Janine, in which case, use a kohl liner to add a few eye stitches!

Prison comedy drama, Orange Is The New Black (or OITNB to seasoned fans) is Netflix’s most popular show – which hopefully means that you won’t be having to explain your costume to people all night. Want to look like a Litchfield resident? Throw on an orange v-neck t shirt over a white tee. If you want to look really authentic, print off an ID card and pin it to your top.

Stranger Things

Eleven – the central character of the retro, sci-fi horror Stranger Things – was a super popular Halloween costume last year and we know why. Apart from being a total badass, Eleven’s outfit is super simple to create: a pale pink dress with a white collar (the grubbier the better) and a drip of fake blood coming from one nostril – pop an old navy bomber jacket on top and you’re ready to fight supernatural forces.

Game of Thrones

Want to make like the Mother of Dragons? Khaleesi’s style changes slightly with each season of the fantasy epic, but opt for a plaited hairstyle, long fitted dress and bangles on the top halves of your arms and you’ll have people referring to you as the Dragon Queen in no time.

Breaking Bad

It might be 10 years old already, but American crime series Breaking Bad is still the second most popular show on Netflix. Main characters Walter and Jesse are like macaroni and cheese – we love them best together – so this costume works best with a buddy. Head down to your local DIY store and pick up some disposable yellow painting overalls and a protective face mask and Voila! You’re all dressed up for Walter’s lab!
