Why not go for their final look, bloodied and dirty in their white and cream outfits? It's perfect for Halloween, and anyone who's watched the series will avoid any berries you offer them.

4. Steve Glew from 'The Pez Outlaw'

This stranger-than-fiction documentary's main character, Steve Glew, needs a bucket hat, simple clothing, a long beard, and candy Pez dispensers. If you have a velvet tracksuit and a duffle bag, even better. How about giving Pez candy to all the trick-or-treaters knocking on your door?

5. 'Queen Charlotte' characters

The beloved Bridgerton characters deserve the limelight on your Halloween night. You may even be crowned best-dressed if you can emulate King George's erratic behavior that is both problematic, charming, and brilliant.

6. 'Is It Cake?' contestant

This US Top TV reality show of 2022 and 2023 has kids taking bites of things around the home. Grab an apron and a 'Cake Goat' necklace like contestant Corterrius, and put your baking skills to the test to fool your friends into thinking the jack-o'-lantern on your table is a real pumpkin. Can't nail it? That's okay - as long as there is cake!

7. 'Transatlantic' refugee smugglers

This period miniseries is inspired by the true story of Mary Jayne Gold, Varian Fry, and the Emergency Rescue Committee of 1940, who helped creative genius' of the time and other refugees fleeing Europe during the Second World War. Gather your friends, some 1940s-inspired clothing, and secretive map routes for your escape.

9. Mia from 'Run Rabbit Run'

Regarding DIY Halloween costumes, this one is as easy as making a cutout, faded pink rabbit mask, and barely removing it. 

10. That 90s Show

12. Edward "Eddie" Munson from 'Stranger Things'

Purchase a Hellfire shirt off Amazon and dress as the underdog Eddie. With a denim or leather jacket and some skull rings, you may even decide to change your look for good. Prepare for your character with some Dungeons and Dragons adventuring. 

13. The Mother from 'The Mother'

Assassin and Mother, played by Jennifer Lopez, is an easy Netflix-inspired character to dress as for your Halloween bash. You only need cargo pants, an oversized jacket, combat boots, hoodies, and beanies. The mother in this 2023 movie fiercely protects her child, which we expect you'll be doing this Halloween with all the gory goblins and witches wandering your neighborhood.
