Have you been worried about what you should wear for Halloween this year? Well fear not! This article will give you 5 Halloween costume ideas. Halloween is a holiday that occurs once on October 31st every year. It was initially a tradition created by the Celtic people, who dressed up in costumes to scare off ghosts. Over the years, it has grown to be a day where people dress up in costumes and go from house to house for candy at night.

Winifred Sanderson

Winifred Sanderson is the main witch from the classic Halloween movie “Hocus Pocus.” There are three witches in the movie who were trapped in a spell that killed them, until a boy lit up the candle in their house on Halloween day. Once that happened, they had 24 hours to try and cast a spell to keep them young and alive. Winifred is the main witch, as she is the one who came up with all the ideas to try to save her friends. She has red hair, big teeth, and a green robe.

Jack Sparrow

Jack Sparrow is from the movie franchise Pirates of the Caribbean. He is the main character and is played by Johnny Depp. He is usually referred to as ‘Captain Jack Sparrow,’ and goes through many obstacles throughout the movies to get his stolen ship back, and live like a normal pirate. Jack Sparrow has a pirate hat, a red bandana around his head, and wears brown baggy clothing.

Cruella De Vil (2021)

Cruella De Vil is an old Disney villain. She is known for her fashionable outfits and many dalmatians. In the new 2021 movie, Cruela De Vil tries to outshine her mother’s killer, who is a fashion designer, by creating her own outfits, and wearing them to the fashion designer’s events. She has many outfits, but my personal favourite is the black and white suit. She has black and white hair, a suit, and high heeled boots.

Jack Skellington

Jack Skellington is also from a classic Halloween movie. He is from “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” which is one of many Tim Burton films. Jack lives in Halloweentown, where it is Halloween everyday. He does not like it because he feels as though it is a dark world. Thia causes him to discover Santa Claus. He obsesses over Santa Claus and abducts him. Jack dresses up in a striped black and white suit with a black bowtie.


Coraline is the main character of the movie “Coraline”. She moves to a new house that she dislikes. As she searches for fun activities to do, she finds an opening to her dream life in a door in her living room. That world has the same house, and people she knows, but they are all what she wishes them to be. Coraline has blue hair, wears a yellow raincoat, and yellow boots.

Thank you for reading this article and I hope I helped you find an idea for your Halloween costume. Happy Halloween!
