Best Friend Halloween Costume Ideas

2019 Updated: We've updated to include new costumes.

Are you and a best friend literally attached at the hip? Okay, not literally, but you get what we mean! We’ve debated and deliberated and we decided that having a bestie in high school is actually more vital than owning a cell phone. Allow us to explain…. Who else are you going to pass notes to when you’re sitting in Chemistry class bored out of your mind? Your BFF of course. Plus, it’s not like you could eat a tub of chocolate frosting in your PJs while binge-watching The Vampire Diaries with just anyone! You need your ride-or-die sister-from-another-mister by your side to partake in all of your slightly awkward favorite activities. In fact, you need your other half with you to partake in everything you do, even Halloween! It's obvious your bestie is vital to your very existence (that might be a slight exaggeration, but you understand), so we’ve conjured up some of our cutest costumes for BFFs. We have tons of options to fit all kinds of bestie relationships so pick out your favorite, put it on, and start posing for some Instagram posts. Your "likes" are going to skyrocket!

Tribute to a Tribute: The Evolution of Katniss Everdeen [Infographic]

Katniss Evolution of Costumes

 

Let's be real about Katniss for a second: the girl can rock all kinds of looks. From combat boots to sky-high stilettos, she transforms from a tomboy to the belle of the ball in the blink of an eye. She even manages to look like a trendsetter in her mother's drab blue dress on the day of The Reaping. It's safe to say that jumpsuits are a staple in Katniss' closet because jumpsuits are both sporty and elegant, just like Katniss! We know that she'll wear the red battle suit in the final movie, but we're also wondering, what other outfits will the Girl on Fire unveil? Will there be more stunning jumpsuits? Will she wow us by wearing any more couture dresses from the Capitol? Will her trusty Mockingjay pin stay with her ‘til the very end? Our questions keep piling up as the anticipation mounts! It's safe to say that we are Hunger Games fanatics and we'll gladly admit that we're obsessed with Miss Everdeen's wardrobe. If you're just as pumped for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 as we are, take a look at our infographic. We hope that it will keep you satisfied until the release on Nov. 20th!

Horror Movie Death quiz

 

Don't hide in the closet! Run out of the house! Oh my gosh, would someone turn a stinkin' light on!?” If you're anything like us, not yelling at the TV screen when watching a scary movie is virtually impossible because horror movie characters are notorious for their bonehead decisions. A group of silly teenagers will purposely summon a demon then wonder why all their friends start turning up dead. That's the beauty of horror movies, though. There are lots of foolish mistakes made, resulting in the gruesome (but awesome) death scenes we love to watch. If you go gaga for gore and guts, take our quiz to find out how YOU would kick the bucket. Spoiler alert: no one is getting out...
