Halloween is around the corner. It’s a joyous time when people welcome being spooked and get to have a little bit of fun with their outfits before the inevitable reappearance of winter boots and parkas.
But before you get down to trick-or-treating and partying, you need to figure out what you’re wearing. This can be a dilemma, especially since we’re in the thick of midterms. If you’re having trouble picking a costume, then this article is here to help. To help accommodate your busy life as a college/university student, we’ll be focusing on the costumes that you can find on Amazon. Amazon offers a wide variety of Halloween costumes that range from spooky, to heroic, to hilarious! The user friendly interface and quick delivery options will hopefully save you a whole lot of time and stress.
Let’s take a look at some of the top costumes you’ll find on the site just in time for Halloween:
34. THE INCREDIBLES
After a 14 year wait, The Incredibles 2 took in a whopping $231.5 million its opening weekend. With a smash hit like that, you can expect to see the film’s classic red jumpsuits everywhere on Halloween. These costumes work on multiple levels. Couples, friends and families can all take part in the fun! Check out these costumes for Mr. Incredible and Mrs. Incredible.
Have a friend who’s terrified of clowns? Did they ever do anything to annoy you? Well, here’s the perfect way to get back at them. And if you happen to be at a Halloween party, you know exactly what move to bust out when the beat drops.
32. LEGO PERSON
The building blocks of any good costume. Although, you might have a little bit of trouble holding your trick-or-treat bags and/or beverages. Just sayin’.
31. BLACK PANTHER
Black Panther took the world by storm when it was released earlier this year. It broke box office records and introduced audiences to a whole new team of superheroes. Whether you go all out with your costume or like to be a little more subtle, there’s a Black Panther costume for you.
30. THE FIRST PURGE
This costume also gives you the excuse to show up to a party like this. It’s a simple costume that requires little effort. All you’ll need is a mask and maybe some fake blood, and before you know it, you’re part of The Purge.
29. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
The ultimate #SquadGoals outfit ensemble, if you can pull it off. The Avengers: Infinity War was this year’s cinematic behemoth. Not only did it take in 2 billion dollars, but it brought together characters from all across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Crowd favourites like Iron Man, Captain America and Spider Man all got new suits for the film which means some fresh new superhero costumes.
28. WONDER WOMAN
27. SAD EMOJI
Still upset over not getting to go trick-or-treating as an adult? Then this costume is perfect for you.

24. BOB ROSS
Bob Ross has been the subject of a number of wholesome memes this year and even went so far as to make it into a Deadpool 2 advertisement. Now, you can take up the mantle of gentle paint instructor with costume. Who says costumes can’t be art?
23. THE MONA LISA
Bob Ross isn’t your speed? Well, you can still be an amazing piece of art this Halloween. This Mona Lisa costume will make you the most famous painting at any party.
22. SPACE FORCE
Join the US Space Force this Halloween and do your part to protect our planet from… aliens? This low effort costume is fun and only requires a t-shirt!
The popular shark-themed nursery song, “Baby Shark”, resurfaced again this year. This time, it’s found a new life as an internet meme. This shark costume is just as likely to get stuck in someone’s head as the song.
Feel like you have the chops to pull off this classic breakfast combo look? Well, prepare to look both sweet and savoury with this PB&J couples costume! Want to add a third person to the party? There’s always Nutella!
19. MARIO AND LUIGI
There’s cool, and then there’s a hotdog eating a hotdog at a costume party cool. (Disclaimer: make sure that the Halloween party you go to is serving hotdogs.)
16. MILK AND COOKIES
Not impressed enough by PB&J? Then it’s probably time you and a friend take on the ultimate food combo with this Milk and Cookies costume! Name a better duo, I’ll wait.
Take this trio to the streets. It’s the perfect costume for a group of friends who are looking to team up this Halloween. Just be careful though, these three costumes have a history of fighting.
14. GETTING A PIGGYBACK FROM TRUMP
You can thank the popular internet meme account, FuckJerry, for this one. It just wouldn’t be a post-2016 Halloween without a Trump costume, and this one takes the cake. This costume is sure to turn some heads.
13. FALCON HEAVY STAR MAN
Back in February, Space X launched their Falcon Heavy Rocket with a very special payload… Elon Musk’s Tesla! The event made for one of the coolest viral videos of the year. It featured an astronaut dummy sitting in Musk’s Tesla, as the David Bowie song “Starman” played in the background… all while floating in space.
Here’s what you’ll need to recreate this iconic image this Halloween:
12. TEAM FRANCE
Still excited about Team France’s World Cup victory? Now you have the chance to flaunt it again with this Team France uniform!
Videos of the popular video game Fortnite were all over the internet this year. From its dances to the appearance of Thanos, the game has taken its place amongst 2018’s pop culture highlights. Now, you can put on one of the game’s skins and take to the dance floor!
I’m not entirely sure what’s going on here, but use that to your advantage! This inflatable costume is fun, quirky, and a great conversation starter.
Another reason for you and the whole crew to suit up. Can’t go wrong with this tried-and-tested ensemble.
Perfect for when you go to the club. Trust me, the ’90s kids will get it.
When you’re in university and you still have your priorities straight. #TeamCharmander
6. WELL, SHIT.
Depending on how realistic the costume is, you may want to pick up a few of these too. But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
Model not included.
No matter what the Halloween occasion, this costume will have you looking fierce! … See what I did there? Because dinosaurs are fierce …. No? … okay … moving on.
Finally, a costume that speaks to the soul. This one is for the person who’s gonna walk around the party all night saying, “You are what you drink!”
…Because we all have that one friend.
