2. Bread Winner
Want to be a little punny with your unique Halloween costume this year.

All you need is a couple of sweatbands, a few gold medals, and a lot of loaves of bread. People are sure to get the joke and will be wanting to take photos with you all night.
3. Early 2000s girl
With the revival of some of our favorite shows from the 2000s being released and all those old episodes being placed on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ it’s no wonder that some of us are wanting to go back to our 2000s phase. This year consider pulling out your butterfly clips, denim mini skirt, chunky flip flops, and pay homage to girls like Britney, Christina, and Paris when you make this one of your unique Halloween costumes this year. And no need to worry if you can’t find or don’t fit into your old stuff, it has become a lot easier to find these things seeing as they are making their way back in style and can be picked up at the trendiest stores.
And if you want to embrace the new E-Girl trend for a night or two, try it out as one of your unique Halloween costumes.

If you need further inspiration and ideas just check out Doja Cat’s beauty secrets video on Youtube and you’ll find all the ways to create the perfect E-Girl look.
5. Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox
For those who want to channel their love of pop culture and have a partner who is willing to participate in a couple’s costume, why not try MGK and Megan Fox as one of your unique Halloween costumes.

It’s easy enough to dress as the couple too, just slap on some tattoos and wear something grungy to embody Colson and slap on a sleek outfit to embody Megan.

Bridgerton was one of Netflix’s most popular series this year and dressing up as any of the characters is a shoo-in for having one of the year’s best unique Halloween costumes.

8. Zoom Call
What better way to go out on Halloween in your pajamas than by dressing up as the dreaded Zoom call as one of your unique Halloween costumes.

9. Bonnie and Clyde
If you are looking for a great couples costume for this Halloween, try the classic duo, Bonnie and Clyde. Give these unique Halloween costumes a little edge by adding blood and bullet holes in your clothes and really give that effect of the tragic end the duos eventually met.
