Halloween is right around the corner! Are you stuck wondering what you should dress up as this year? Well, worry no more! We’ve put together a list of what you should dress up as for Halloween, according to your zodiac sign!
Aries: Cher Horowitz (Clueless), Leia Organa (Star Wars)
As an Aries, you are known for your confidence. You’ve often been called a natural born leader due to your unmatched drive your audacious attitude; you’re not afraid to take risks if it means reaching your goal.
That’s why this Halloween you should definitely be Leia Organa from the Star Wars franchise. Just like an Aries, Leia is adventurous and is a leader both in the films and to women everywhere showing us that not all princesses are in distress.
But if you prefer to channel the other side of your zodiac, the “go big or go home”, moody, and strong personality side, Cher Horowitz is your Aries twin! Not only is Cher’s outfit icon, but it is also very vibrant and demands attention just like a true Aries! Aries is often misunderstood and seen as bratty and self-involved living an extravagant lifestyle, but really they just strive for the best! And who can blame them for that?
Taurus: Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands), Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
Another sign in the zodiac that is often misunderstood, a Taurus loves to stay in and enjoy all the beauty and elegance the world has to offer. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t hard-working, and sometimes people forget that you work hard for the things you have and should be allowed to indulge!
This Halloween, channel one of the two most misunderstood characters in film history: Edward Scissorhands and Jessica Rabbit. Edward is completely misunderstood from the second he was created, but it’s not his fault he has scissors for hands! Even though Edward is a little intimidating he has a heart of pure gold. He admires the world for what it is and finds and sees beauty where others can’t.
If Edward isn’t the most down-to-earth soul out there, I don’t know what is. Just like you, Taurus, Edward is quite private and shy around those he doesn’t know. He has a passion for design, just like you, and just wants to be accepted. While Edward Scissorhands is the perfect Halloween costume, you should also consider being one of the most badass cartoons ever created: Jessica Rabbit. But as we all know, Jessica isn’t bad, she was just drawn that way.
Jessica has an undeniable sensual side to her and although not all Taurus’ show it, they most definitely have one as well. But what people have failed to realize is that Jessica is way more than a sex symbol, she is also incredibly loyal to Roger, a romantic, driven, and artistic, just like you! While both you and Jessica may seem a little distant at times, you have an undeniable soft-spot for the ones you love and when they are in trouble, your inner bull will come out and do anything to protect them.
Gemini: Grady’s Daughters (The Shining), Tinkerbell (Peter Pan)
Geminis symbol, the twins, can be explained very simply: you are often very hot and cold. Of course, there’s so much more to you that is overlooked! As a Gemini, tend to be very lively and imaginative one second then very quiet and opinionated the next, which might be why you get the stereotype of being two-faced. In reality, you are just being authentic! You don’t put up a front and you let your emotions and thoughts be known.
But if you are wanting to channel your inner two-faced twin, what better Halloween costume to do that than Grady’s daughters from The Shining? Grady’s daughters are two of the most iconic (and terrifying) twins in cinema and literature history.
However, there is a theory that Grady’s daughters are not even twins at all despite being near mirror images of one another. While it may not be obvious at first, the “twins” were intentionally made to look different, proving that not all twins are identical. Consider this a metaphor of your inner twin: just because you look the same doesn’t mean you are the same. Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, is that you?
It’s completely understandable if you want to go a less-dark route, though. Whether the metaphor messed with your head or you just can’t find someone else to do the costume with you, fear not! If you’re doing an individual costume, why not do everyone’s favorite pixie, Tinkerbell?
If Tinkerbell were a zodiac sign, she would 100% be a Gemini. Tinkerbell is the definition of hot and cold but she can’t help it! Her little body is so small she can only feel one emotion at a time! But besides Tinkerbell’s vivacious emotion, she is also extremely lively, clever, opinionated, and loyal, just like any Gemini!
Cancer: Elsa (Frozen), Mary Poppins (Mary Poppins)
The sign of the home and of family, Cancers are some of the most kind, patient, and loyal people you will ever meet. However, Cancer’s hard exterior will sometimes prevent people from seeing the softer side of them but they make the most amazing parents and guardians. This Halloween, show off your sign with two of the most amazing caretakers and parental-figures ever: Elsa and Mary Poppins.
With the sequel of Frozen coming to theaters in November, Elsa is sure to be a top costume once again. Besides Elsa’s gorgeous hair and voice, she is also a very complex character that many Cancers can relate to! While Elsa has her own reasons for locking herself up in her room, Cancers also prefer to stay in and thrive in their homes.
Just like Elsa, you can come off as snappy or indifferent, but everything you do is done with love and for your loved ones. Some might say you are distant but that is often confused with your shy nature. While you might be shy and reserved, it’s because you might have feelings of inadequacy and are afraid to be put in a vulnerable position. At the end of the day, all you want is to be understood and loved just like everyone else!
However, since Elsa will be a very popular costume this year, maybe you want to be a little more unique! If that’s the case, Mary Poppins is the ideal costume for you. Everyone’s favorite nanny not only is practically perfect in every way, but she also has a fantastic outfit that would make the perfect Halloween costume!
Just like Mary, you are incredibly kind, patient, sympathetic, and loyal. But you also know when to be stern and how to gain respect from those who might not give it to you right away. You are very nurturing and are quite secretive just like Mary. You like to keep your personal life private but will also show your vulnerable and true self to those who gain your trust. As an added bonus, Mary’s costume is quite simple but looks super(califragilisticexpialidocious)!
Leo: Harry Potter (Harry Potter), Glinda (Wizard of Oz, Wicked)
Leos are often seen as the most powerful sign. After all their symbol is the king of the jungle, so it would only make sense that they are seen as the king of the zodiac! A lion is a perfect symbol for a Leo because just like a lion, Leos are powerful, extravagant, confident, energetic, and fun. Leos have a magnetic quality to them that makes them very well-liked and popular amongst their peers.
For these reasons, the perfect Halloween costume for you this Halloween would have to either be Harry Potter or Glinda (the Good Witch).
If a Leo were to put on the sorting hat, they would most definitely be placed in Gryffindor. Gryffindor houses those who are courageous, daring, and chivalry, all of which are qualities of a Leo. In fact, Gryffindor’s house animal is the lion and their colors reflect a fire, which is your element!
Therefore, Harry Potter or any member of Gryffindor for that matter would make the ideal costume! This would even make a great costume for a group of friends and is easy enough to put together with things you might already own!
If you feel like Harry Potter has been overdone don’t worry! There are many more choices for you, Leo, and one of the best is Glinda! Glinda (the Good Witch) is an iconic character from both The Wizard of Oz and the Broadway musical, Wicked. It also helps that she is 100% a Leo, especially in Wicked!
In the musical, Wicked, we see Glinda’s inner Leo come out and she is fierce. Just like you, Glinda is very creative, loyal, dramatic, social, and fun. Everyone wants to be Glinda’s friend as she has that magnetic quality of a Leo that makes her very *POPULAR*!
But sometimes Glinda can be a little overly confident and hands out unsolicited advice thinking she knows what’s best. Just like any Leo, Glinda’s heart is in the right place and she just wants everyone to feel as confident as she does! Glinda is fiercely loyal, especially to her friends, and just wants everyone to have happiness in the end (she really hopes they get it and don’t live to regret it).
Virgo: Mystery Gang (Scooby-Doo), Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
As a Virgo, you are often seen as uptight and reserved when in actuality, you are just extremely observant and you strive for the very best. Your intelligence can make you seem like a control-freak, but you are, instead, very analytical and you want the facts and will not stop at anything to get those facts! Which is why this Halloween, you should either be a member of the Mystery Gang from Scooby-Doo or Belle from Beauty and the Beast!
The Mystery Gang ain’t afraid of no ghost because they use their logic to figure out there is always a man behind the mask, just like you, Virgo! The gang is always looking for the truth and are always practical when searching for clues. They are all extremely observant which allows them to figure out who is behind the crime they are investigating! The Mystery Gang does not settle for basic answers and instead works to find out the truth for themselves, just like you.
But if one of the members of the Mystery Gang isn’t for you, go the sweeter side and be Belle from Beauty and the Beast! Unlike many other princesses before her, Belle is strong-willed and very intelligent. Many people in her town think she’s odd because she doesn’t settle. Just like you, Belle loves to read and appreciates literature and the places it takes her. Belle is extremely hard working and wants to learn more about the world. While she may come off shy at first, she is extremely kind-hearted and can create order out of chaos, just like you.
Libra: Coraline Jones (Coraline), Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Libras are often seen as the most romantic star sign as they tend to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. Libras will look for balance in the world and if they can’t find it, they will create it themselves. However, sometimes their stubborn nature can get in their way and they find themselves constantly searching for a missing piece. Because Libras prize beauty and harmony, they will often go to great lengths to find and achieve that missing piece and forget what is really important to them. For this upcoming Halloween, it would only make sense that you be one of the most Libra characters around: Coraline and Sally.
Coraline Jones has a lot of Libra in her and that is seen throughout the entire movie. Coraline isn’t exactly content with her current home life and looks for a better situation elsewhere. In this other world that she discovers, Coraline is able to be creative and imaginative which are two things all Libras can relate to. However, Coraline quickly realizes that the rose-tinted glasses she sees this new world through are tainted and the best place for her is back home. Just like you, Coraline looked for a balance in her life between work or play and went to great lengths to find her missing piece only to find it costs more than it was worth.
Similarly to Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ Sally is also searching for her missing piece. Throughout the entire film, Sally is extremely stubborn and also believes in balance, just like you! Sally does not go all-or-nothing when Jack wants to celebrate Christmas and instead is the voice of reason when telling Jack that there should be harmony and not all one holiday. At the same time, Sally has her insecurities just like every Libra, but she is also headstrong and will do anything for the ones she loves.
Scorpio: Medusa, Beatrix Kiddo/The Bride (Kill Bill)
Scorpios often get a bad rap because of their emotions. You may have noticed that Scorpios don’t forgive or forget very easily and will often let their emotions get the better of them. At the same time, Scorpios are also extremely brave, strong, and loyal people which is probably why they react so passionately when they have been wronged. A Scorpio’s intensity can often be seen as a sign of jealousy or possessiveness when in actuality they just feel so deeply that it may come off that way. But when a Scorpio is done wrong, you better watch out. For these reasons, the perfect Halloween costume for any Scorpio would either be Medusa or The Bride in Kill Bill.
Medusa is an iconic figure in Greek mythology who was often described as a monster. In actuality, Medusa was actually a product of jealousy and revenge and turned into a beast by Athena. Just like a Scorpio, Medusa is extremely misunderstood and mysterious because of her appearance. As you can imagine, Medusa’s trust in others was ruined when she was wronged and many Scorpios are the same way.
If you want a Halloween costume inspired by a movie, however, then your perfect costume would be Beatrix Kiddo (a.k.a. The Bride) from Kill Bill. Beatrix was a former member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, leaving once she becomes pregnant. However, all of Beatrix’s friends, family, and fiance are killed at her marriage rehearsal and she, herself, is shot in the head thus putting her into a four-year coma and missing the birth of her daughter.
It is now that Beatrix’s inner Scorpio rises to the surface and she is determined to avenge her loved ones and kill the members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, including her former flame, Bill. Just like any Scorpio, Beatrix only became vengeful after she had been wronged and isn’t one to forgive or forget. Her unyielding intensity is what makes her one of the most iconic assassins in film history. Beatrix is extremely strong and brave while also being strategic and persistent, just like you! Beatrix’s suspicions are what keep her sane and she is not one to give away trust blindly… at least not anymore…
Sagittarius: Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
The free-spirits of the zodiac, Sagittarius’ have an unquenchable need to travel and explore the world. Sagittarius’ are one of the most adventurous kinds of person you will meet and as a result, they cannot be tied down. A Sagittarius wants to be able to travel without having to answer to anyone as they tend to be very restless and independent. As a Sagittarius, you have a lot of unanswered questions about the world you live in and are curious to learn more. For these reasons, it would only make sense that you either be Lara Croft or Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
Lara Croft is the definition of a Sagittarius as she is extremely energetic, restless, independent, and adventurous with an inner need to discover the secrets of both the past and the world itself. Lara is generally uninterested with luxury and would rather explore the unknown. Just like any Sagittarius, Lara is extremely lucky and is able to get out of tedious situations with ease and agility. Lara’s curiosity won’t let her be constrained and she would rather look for buried secrets than read about them, just like you!
Of course, if you’d rather go the sweeter side, Alice from Alice in Wonderland is the sweeter mirror-image of Lara. Just like you and Lara, Alice is an undeniable free-spirit who wants to explore. She is extremely cheerful, adventurous, and curious, sometimes to a fault. Her need for freedom often leads her to trouble, but she would much rather quench her wanderlust than study her books, sound familiar? Alice’s optimism is what gets her through even the toughest of situations and her kindness to all people and animals is unmatched.
Capricorn: Ursula (The Little Mermaid), Daisy Buchanan (The Great Gatsby)
Capricorns are notorious for being ambitious, goal-oriented, and successful. Capricorns know what they want and will do what they can to achieve their goals which is probably why they often get a bad rap. Many might say that Capricorns are money motivated and materialistic. In reality, Capricorns are rather misunderstood and they work hard for their money and are able to buy nice things because of their work ethic! Capricorns have a fun side of them that they don’t often reveal right away but once they do many of them enjoy music and art and have a great sense of humor. They dry wit makes them relatable and hilarious as they are very creative they can make a joke out of anything. For these reasons, this year you should either be Ursula from The Little Mermaid or Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby.
Ursula is everyone’s favorite villain. Ask anyone and Ursula will probably be in their top three favorite Disney villains. Ursula is the comic relief of The Little Mermaid along with Scuttle and she is absolutely iconic. Just like you, Ursula is very goal-oriented and loves music which might explain why she wants Ariel’s voice so bad. Although it might not be obvious on the surface, Ursula is incredibly loyal to Flotsam and Jetsam. Admittedly Ursula does have a chip on her shoulder and can be spiteful and aloof which might raise the same reaction out of you when you are upset. Despite all this, you have to admit Ursula is a very convincing, lovable, and successful character, just like you!
If Ursula isn’t your thing or purple isn’t your color, Daisy Buchanan is your next best choice! Besides having gorgeous outfits, Daisy is a very misunderstood character. Daisy is often seen as materialistic, money motivated, can grow bored easily, and aloof but none of that is actually true. Just like you, Daisy has a deeper side that can explain these misconceptions but that doesn’t mean people don’t get that impression at first. In reality, both you and Daisy are very ambitious, determined, independent, and creative, it just takes a little digging for people to see that side!
Aquarius: Miss Frizzle (The Magic School Bus), Rosie the Riveter
The kindest and most forward-thinking of all the signs, Aquarius is a true visionary and humanitarian. An Aquarius will often be described as wacky or unique but really they are just true to themselves and have a more advanced way of thinking! Just because something is different doesn’t make it weird! Even though an Aquarius might be called strange, they don’t care! Their self-confidence is unbeatable and they don’t take anything negative to heart. Instead, Aquarius will look for the good as they are very open-minded and tolerant of others. This Halloween, amp up your Aquarius personality with either Miss Frizzle or Rosie the Riveter!
Miss Frizzle is the teacher that we all wanted back in elementary middle school. Yes, she is a little wacky but she was also incredibly kind and wanted what was best for her students. She advanced their minds and opened up her kids to new experiences which should have given her the title of Teacher of the Year. Miss Frizzle is incredibly wise and witty, just like you! And of course, every good teacher has to be a little tolerant which you 100% are!
If Miss Frizzle is before or after your time, go way back and channel Rosie the Riveter, one of the most iconic humanitarians in history! No matter where you are, everyone will recognize Rosie. For those of you who don’t know, Rosie was the poster woman for recruiting female workers for defense industries during World War 2. Rosie the Riveter is definitely an icon for all Aquariuses (and should be for everyone no matter what your sign) and you can do no wrong dressing as this strong and brave woman!
Pisces: Mermaid, Ghostbuster (Ghostbusters)
Pisces are known for their receptive and intuitive nature, often being called psychic or clairvoyant. As a Pisces, you are very imaginative, mystical, and positive as you see the world through rose-colored lenses. Pisces are often said to be interested in ESP (no, not ESPN come on Karen) and tend to be very mystical as they are closest to the spiritual world. For these reasons, you should channel 2 of the most mystical characters ever, a mermaid or a Ghostbuster.
Mermaids are some of the most mystical characters in folklore and mythology. Just like you, mermaids thrive in water and they love to swim. Depending on who you ask, mermaids are amongst some of the most famous make-believe creatures that are very mysterious and elusive; Pisces tend to believe in myth and lore and are also very mysterious and elusive! Just like you, mermaids are very adaptable, fantastical, and unique making this the ideal Halloween costume for you!
If you’ve been there, done that with the mermaid costume, be a Ghostbuster instead! Instead of being the fantastical creature, capture them! In order to be a Ghostbuster, you have to have an intuitive side that allows you to see what others cannot. Capturing the mystical and magical isn’t an easy task but because you are sensitive to ‘the other side,’ being a Ghostbuster would be a breeze!
