If you spend your free time obsessing over a TV show or a book, movie or anything, then you might want to show yourself as a proud member of your fandom by donning an appropriate Halloween costume! Think about it. You can kill two flies with one blow. You get to finally decide what to wear for Halloween, and you might even meet someone who enjoys the same things you do!
1. Orange is the New Black
Orange is the New Black is the one show everyone definitely binge-watches on Netflix. This is a great idea for the whole squad. Everyone can dress as their favorite character!

2. Back to the Future
Create a blast from the past! Or the future? Get your Marty McFly on and take your DeLorean and Doc Brown with you! Don’t forget the hoverboard!

This one could be tough to pull off as it might be difficult for people to recognize who you are supposed to be. But don’t worry Friends fans, there is a solution for you! You can put some wedding dresses on and chug beer. Everyone will figure out you are Rachel and Monica from “The One with all the Wedding Dresses.”

4. Harry Potter
Everyone’s favorite wizard and his loyal sidekicks are a great option for a Halloween costume. Paying attention to details, like the wigs, is a really nice touch.

5. Mean Girls
Stop trying to make this happen. It’s never gonna happen!
Oh yes, it is. And it’s gonna be so pink!

A throwback to the 90’s. Cher and Dionne are the choice of costume for you, especially if you haven’t stopped loving Clueless for the past two decades.

7. Game of Thrones
Who better to want to be like than the Mother of Dragons? And if you didn’t really like Khal Drogo as her partner, that’s okay. You still have many other options to choose from. Like Daario. Or Ser Jorah. Or Jon Snow? Wonder who she’ll end up with next season…

I ain’t afraid of no ghosts! This is another brilliant idea for the whole group! Just be careful not to cross your streams…

9. Star Trek
It’s a risk going as a character from one of the biggest franchises in existence. The Star Trek fandom is known for their loyalty as well as their trolling abilities, so make sure you know what you are doing. Live long and prosper. Spock out.

10. Hocus Pocus
You love Hocus Pocus but your group includes four friends, instead of three? No problem, one of you can go as Binx the cat. And don’t forget your grimoire, otherwise how are you going to cast spells?

11. Stranger Things
Stranger Things is a phenomenon that has swept the nation! Who is your favorite character? It’s Barb, isn’t it? Everyone loves Barb!

12. Star Wars
The Star Wars fandom is another one you don’t want to mess with. Make sure your costume is perfect, and for God’s sake, whatever you do, don’t, I repeat, do NOT go as Jar Jar Binks.
13. The Simpsons
If you want to be the Simpsons this year you will have to invest a lot of money in yellow body paint. You will also need lots of donuts and beer.
14. Parks and Recreation
This is a really well-executed idea. Everyone is here: Leslie, April, Andy, Ron, even… Jean-Ralphio? Why the hell would you dress up as him? He sucks!
There is no Lydia without Beetlejuice. This costume is very Halloween appropriate, with Beetlejuice being a ghost and all…

16. Arrested Development
A perfect tribute to Arrested Development would be to dress up as George Michael and Maeby. Don you Banana Stand uniforms and you’re ready to go. Oh, wait. Don’t forget your frozen bananas dipped in chocolate!
