These 23 Halloween Costumes Would Certainly Win Any Costume Contest

One of the things that we love the most about Halloween is seeing all of the creative costumes. This year, there won’t be as many opportunities to see cute costumes in real life due to COVID-19, but we’re not letting that ruin the celebration.

We’ve already pulled together our favorite photos of women who completely went above and beyond when it comes to maternity Halloween costumes and new parents who got super creative with baby wearing costumes.

Those costumes are great and all, but if you’re still looking for a last minute costume idea, they won’t be very helpful unless you’re pregnant or happen to have a baby.

We decided to round up a list of the our favorite Halloween costumes. There’s a wide variety here, but what they all have in common is that they are super creative and very well executed. Some of them appear to have taken quite a bit of work to pull off, but others actually look pretty easy to replicate.

Scroll down for some exceptional Halloween costumes that might inspire you to create your own out-of-the-box costume.
