Written by Nicholas Duarte

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.

33. PENNYWISE

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.

You can even make it an ensemble with these Shuri, Dora Milaje and Erik Killmonger costumes.

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.

Check out these costumes for Iron Spider, Iron Man, Doctor Strange and the ever so cruel, Avengers clean up crew.  (Yes, this is just a broom and dustpan.)

28. WONDER WOMAN

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.
