10 Of The Best 90s Halloween Costumes

As millennials, most of us spent much of our childhood basking in the glory days of the 1990s. It was an incredible decade when Sega reigned supreme among gaming systems, Nickelodeon featured all our favorite shows (Are You Afraid of the Dark?), and some of the best family Halloween movies were released (Hocus Pocus, Ernest Scared Stupid, and Nightmare Before Christmas)! So, what millennials wouldn’t want to return to the 90s with their Halloween costumes?

I think a decade has never been more inundated with interesting, silly, and brilliant media, so pay homage to the 90s this Halloween with these fantastic 90s Halloween costumes! We have quite a few to choose from group costumes to individual costumes if you go to a costume party solo. Whether you want to look like Power Rangers or a character from Jurassic Park, you will have the perfect Halloween experience. Plenty of ’90s Halloween costume ideas are just waiting to be worn at the Halloween party!

If you were looking for 90s costume ideas, you’ve come to the right place!

1. Dionne and Cher from Clueless

I love this movie. I mean, who didn’t? The film is from the 90s, a pop culture icon. And every outfit Cher and Dionne wear is adorable. But their first-day-of-school businesses take the cake!

If you and your best friend want to dress up like this best-friend duo, I highly recommend this costume idea.

Not only will you both be super cute in these outfits, but I am sure most people will get the movie reference. Lucky for you, both costumes can be found right on Amazon! Here are the links to retailer sites:

2. Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family

Let’s face it, Wednesday was the creator of “resting bitch face” and a role model to all ladies worldwide. She is adamant about being who she wants to be (and wearing what she wants to wear) in the face of bright-eyed, smiling conformity.

This one is another easy DIY 90’s Halloween costume. All you need is some pale face makeup, a black wig, and a black dress!

3. Daria

Another simple DIY costume (visit your local thrift store or mall to complete Daria’s signature look*). If you ever watched the TV show Daria, Daria unapologetically told it as she saw it. She never tried to hide her disdain and disinterest in the menial lifestyle of other high school students and their suburban families.

An Amazon search returns over 16,000 “green blazer” results, so feel free to search for the style you prefer the most! Here are a few other items below you should have to complete the look.

*You must provide your resting bitch face to complete this look.

black skirt
green sweater
orange t-shirts
black boot
brunette wig
black round glasses

4. Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

You can rock the 1992 film version or go with the classic Sarah Michelle Gellar Buffy of the late 90s. Both are classics and seriously badass 90s Halloween costumes!

Both incarnations of Buffy are feminine, beautiful, and badass all at once. Go with the classic Buffy look by donning a cheerleader outfit, a blonde wig, and a stake!

5. Beetlejuicebeetlejuice movie

Yes, Beetlejuice was released in the late 80s, but it was indeed a cult hit for 90s kids everywhere. Beetlejuice and Lydia could be great couple costumes, but they’ve also released these fantastic masks for Adam and Barbara Maitland.

In recent years, I have obsessively Googled how to recreate these masks myself and often found that I am probably not artistic enough to create anything near that caliber. Hence, these masks are fantastic for the less crafty folk who still want to impress with the Halloween costume!

You can buy Barbara’s mask here.

You can buy Adam’s mask here.

6. One of the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus

Like clockwork, every fall season, you can find me sitting down to rewatch one of my favorite all-time classics, Hocus Pocus. There’s something unique and magical about the film, mainly because a lot of it was filmed in Salem!

It’s so popular that fans have located filming locations and created a tour you can take yourself. Although this might cost you more than the other costumes on the list, it’s worth the money, especially if you have two friends who want to team up! Feel free to sing “I’ve Put a Spell on You” on a constant loop!

7. Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus

If you grew up in the 90s, the name Ms. Frizzle should spark excitement. She was the teacher we all wish we had and took all her students on many magical adventures on The Magic School Bus. I mean, why can’t we go on field trips every day? I used to wonder.

Anyway, you can spark that same excitement around you in this costume. Bonus points if you are a teacher by day! Dressing up for your students as Miss Frizzle will be pretty cool for them, too!

8. Powerpuff Girls

I used to live for the Powerpuff Girls. Nothing is more excellent than this cute trio kicking ass and saving the world. Why not show up like the adorable badass you are?

Grad two friends to complete your trio. Find more information about the costumes below.

9. Britney Spears

We can’t talk 90’s without Britney. She rocked the world when she debuted with Hit Me Baby One More Time and had everyone dressed up like her for Halloween for years to come. Even Satan dressed up like her on South Park.

If you want to look fierce and nostalgic, Britney is the way to go!

10. A Cheerleader From Bring It On

Last but certainly not least is one of the Clovers from Bring It On. Of course, there were two different squads, but we know who brought it in the end.

This is an adorable costume from the movie Bring It On. Double points if you remember the step from the film to perform. Even more points if you can get friends to wear the same thing and do it with you!

You won’t need to look any further for all the #inspo you need to rock your 90s Halloween costumes this year. Have a spooky time!
