No Halloween is complete without a superhero costume. Though the movie will only be out next year that doesn't mean you can't stay ahead of the trend and go as Captain Marvel coming Halloween.

It might be a little difficult to find this costume at the last minute but you can make your own if you have some creative skill up your sleeves, and if you have short blonde hair, go as the beloved Captain America!

Gamora Inspired Pink Purple Hair Colour

Full House

Another superhero look you can recreate that is easy is Gamora. Her pink/purple hair has been quite the trendsetter, and you'll only need a similar leather suit and a whole lot of green paint, that is if you already have her pink and purple hair.

Gamora wears her hair parted in the middle with slight beach waves, so you are going to want to take out your curling wand for this.

5. Pinkalicious Halloween

Did you know you can still look scary or creepy with pink hair? Lady Gaga's portrayal of a skeleton girl in her 'Born This Way' music video is a great example of how you can turn your sweet pink into something creepy.

For the bad girl vibes, throw on a black leather jacket and dress up as the Toni Topaz from Riverdale. Other pieces of clothing you'll need are ripped denim, plaid shirt, choker necklaces, and booties. Don't forget to add the signature serpent tattoo to represent the Southside Serpent and show who's the ultimate baddie!

If you can manage to find a purple trapeze costume that looks similar to Anne Wheeler's from The Greatest Showman then wear simply wear your bubblegum pastel pink hair in an updo. It'll be even more awesome if you can get the rest of your friends to dress up as the other characters from The Greatest Showman and make it a group costume.

6. Geisha


Want to look sexy and creepy at the same time? The long-haired seductive Geisha is an obvious choice especially if you've always been fascinated with Japanese horror movies. 

It's also pretty easy to achieve. All you need is to get a floral kimono of your choice and a pair of okobo (wooden shoes), gather your straight dark hair to make a bun at the top of your head like this.

Then, put on the most dramatic makeup ever with white face paint, winged eyeshadow and bright red lipstick. 

Sun Ho Geisha

If you need help, there's always Xiaxue's makeup tutorial on the Sun Ho-inspired Geisha makeup look for just that extra sluttishness. 

7. Goth


There is no better time to immerse into the gothic subculture than Halloween. Dramatic with black heavy eyeliner, dark lipstick shades and funky accessories, goth fits right into the Halloween theme. Black is synonymous with goth and since most Asians have black hair, one of the easiest classic Halloween look you can replicate at the last minute is Morticia Addams or Wednesday Addams.

To create either of these two looks, you don’t need much - a maxi bell sleeve black dress for the Morticia Addams look or a black short sleeve white collar dress for the ghoulish-girly Wednesday Addams look. Wear your long black hair sleek and straight, parted in the middle, and if you are replicating the Wednesday Addams look, do the same but braided at two sides.

If you are already rocking silver or grey hair, you don’t have to put too much thought into your Halloween look.

Goth makeup goes well with such hair colours as your hair colour is a Halloween costume on its own.

8. Lara Jean


AVENTA Hair Salon

If you are going for a Halloween look that's more 2018, then Lara Jean from To All The Boys I've Loved should do the trick. Not only is Lara Jean's look easy to recreate as you most likely already have similar wardrobe pieces and hairstyle also doesn't require much effort.

Wear it down or tie it up in a ponytail with a bunny ears scrunchie.

9. Cheryl Blossom


Copper Hair Colour by Mane Made

Ditch scary don sexy on Halloween as Cheryl Blossom. Her long copper red tresses dressed up in bombshell curls amps up the sexiness factor, and of course, you can't forget to tie your whole look with the sexiest lip colour of all time; red! To achieve the curls, you'll need a curling wand to create big soft curls. The curls shouldn't be too tight or loose. It does require some effort but if you are not up for it, you can always head down to the salon and get it styled.

10. Betty Cooper


Bump Hair Salon @ The Rochester

For a Betty Copper inspired costume, you want to keep your style soft and feminine. Look for wardrobe pieces that exude sweet and girl-next-door vibes such as a pastel cardigan, polka dot blouse, a pair of jeans, and converse. Pull your blonde hair back in a tight ponytail and finish off with nude pink lipstick. To bring your look to the next level, get your boyfriend to dress up as Jughead Jones and you have yourself a couple Halloween costume that doesn't require much thought!

BONUS: Rosmah Mansor
