Selecting the ideal Halloween costume can be tough. For starters, you don’t want to wear a costume that everyone else might be wearing to your friend’s Halloween party; you want to stand out. You want to make sure that your costume suits you, both literally and metaphorically. Ultimately, you want a costume that looks and feels like the unique soul you are. The solution? Let the stars be your guide. Whether you’re a fierce leader like Aries, a romantic Libra, or have an intelligent Type-A personality like Capricorn, choosing your Halloween costume according to your zodiac sign means you’ll find something that fits like a glove without the shopping stress.
If you’re running short on time and ideas or have your eye on winning this year’s Halloween costume contest, show off your personality by consulting the cosmos on this year’s lewk.
Aries are fiercely independent, brave, and love to lead. Along with your hot-headed temper and compassionate heart, there’s no costume better for you than Wonder Woman. Because your motto is, “Only love will truly save the world.” That, and your ass-kicking skills.
While most people know the Bull to be notoriously stubborn yet practical and hardworking, a Taurus is also sensual and romantic with a taste for the finer things in life, like good food. Tiana from The Princess and the Frog is basically your alter ego.
Geminis are quick-witted and clever, but thanks to their dual personality—they are the twin sign, after all—they have a little bit of both good and evil in them. In other words, they’re hella complicated, just like pickpocket Constance, played by Awkwafina, in Ocean’s Eight.
Cancers are emotional and nurturing souls who would do anything for their loved ones. While they can be moody sometimes, their home cooking more than makes up for their emotional ups and downs. Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd, along with her meat pies, would be a solid costume choice.
Leos are proud and loud, and always up for a challenge, especially if it means they get a shot at the spotlight. Strong and vivacious, Ruth Wilder from Glow is your go-to costume.
Analytical Virgos are perfectionists with a thirst for knowledge. Always needing things to be just so and wanting to be right in every argument (because you usually are), you’re none other than Hermione Granger.
Libras are romantic and sociable with an urgent need to seek balance and justice in the world. Extroverted souls who desire to help others while wearing the most fashionable clothes, your costume inspiration is Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.
Both mysterious and intense, it’s no wonder Scorpio is considered the Queen of Halloween. Which is why you need a costume that basically is Halloween personified. Enter the vampire queen herself, Akasha from Queen of the Damned.
Sags are intellectual, fun-loving creatures who are endowed with an adventurous spirit. Because nothing can get them down, not even a bully like Angelica, you’re definitely Susie Carmichael from Rugrats.
Capricorns are intelligent and ambitious mountain climbers who aren’t afraid to go the distance when it comes to achieving their potential. If they have to fight the dark side, so be it. No wonder your ideal costume is Rey from Star Wars.
Eccentric Aquarians are humanitarians who refuse to live conventionally. Independent and kind Aquarius also rules outer space, so anything related to the stars and time travel is a good idea. You’re Lt. Uhura from both the original and updated Star Trek.
Intuitive and sensitive, Pisces are natural healers with strong escapist tendencies. However, if you can harness your powerful skills, you can save the world. Naturally, you’re Storm from X-Men.
Using the stars as your guide, you can’t go wrong with these costume choices. When you win Best Costume, you know who to thank. (Us and the cosmos, of course.)
