If the katana didn't already give it away, The Bride is a total icon. Uma Thurman played the heroine in the two-part movie series directed by Quentin Tarantino, but you can totally pull off that yellow jumpsuit, too.

We were pumped to hear Sanaa Lathan's voice as Catwoman in the 2019 Harley Quinn TV series. So why not dress like her on October 31?

There are always a ton of Daeneryses running around on Halloween — and that's because she's one of the most badass characters of them all. Whether you're a natural icy blonde or not, this costume will help you channel some serious Mother of Dragons vibes.
At the end of Grease, Sandy finds her confidence (and a pretty amazing all-black outfit).
Harley Quinn might be a bad guy, but dressing up like her feels so good. Those blue and red accents, from hair to toe, are the perfect addition to a squad or it makes an awesome solo costume.
In last year's Frozen 2, Princess Anna trades her coronation gown for an outfit that's more suitable for trekking an enchanted forest. Pair your costume with a red wig and boots and you'll be ready to save Arendelle.
