10 of the best BFF costumes, because everyone knows Halloween is secretly for besties
We’re less than two weeks away from the most spooktacular time of year, and like most things, Halloween is so much better when you participate with a friend. By now, you hopefully have an idea of your party plans for the big night, but more importantly, picked the amazing BFF Halloween costumes you’ll be wearing this year. Because you guys do everything together anyway, why let the best holiday for best friends pass you by?
We know with so many options when it comes to BFF costumes, it can be hard to pick just one.
So, in the spirit of celebrating kickass BFFs and their boo-tiful friendships, we’ve put together a list of ten of the best costumes for besties we’ve come across.
1The perfect “I Love Lucy” duo
I Love Lucy is the ultimate throwback costume and these two did an amazing job with their vintage-inspired look. If you’re looking to pay homage to a classic, then this will be perfect for you and your bestie.
2Will and Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bell Air
On the TV show, Will and Hilary are cousins, but they also always have each others’ backs, and for that reason alone, we think they’d make an awesome BFF costume (and sub out Hilary for Carlton should you prefer!).
3Carl and Russell from Disney’s “UP”
You’ve seen the Disney animated movie, and you’ve probably also cried through it with your bestie, so why not bring this unlikely friendship to life with your Halloween costumes?
4Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy from “SpongeBob SquarePants”
Together there is nothing these two can’t do, and if that sounds like your friendship with your bestie then get ready for an underwater adventure…or any costume party with Bikini Bottom’s best and brightest superheroes. And if you want to go “mainstream” you can always opt for Spongebob and Patrick Star instead.
5Tweedledum and Tweedledee
There’s absolutely no separating these two because they are brothers, after all. If at the end of the day, your best friend feels more like a sibling, then this is your costume right here!
6An adorable yet creepy pair of mimes
We can all agree that mimes are kind of creepy. While they’re not killer clown creepy, their spook-factor is definitely up there. And since this is the spookiest time of year, why not up your own spook-factor by dressing up in these simple mime costumes?
7The Grady Twins from “The Shining”
To this day, we still have nightmares about The Shining. If you and your bestie enjoy revisiting horror classics then The Grady Twins costume will be an ideal fit.
8Pizza for two, please?
A huge, huge part of being BFFs with someone is getting together and sharing your favorite snacks. And we can’t think of a better way to spend the night than dressing up like junk food.
9Max and Caroline from “2 Broke Girls”
Despite their many, many differences, Max and Caroline have stuck together and overcome a ton of obstacles, and for that we think these two will make the best BFF costume for you and yours.
10Zenon and Nebula from “Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century”
Whether you say “cetus-lupeedus” or “zetus lapetus,” there’s no denying that these two supernova girls have always made our hearts go boom, boom. And if the same reigns true for you and your best friend then why not bring on the intergalactic spooks with this BFF costume?
Whatever you and your bestie decide to go as, we hope you’ll both have a fun and safe Halloween together. Because that’s what matters most.
