To pull off a Harry Potter costume, you’ll just need a cape, some glasses and an expertly drawn lightning-bolt scar on your forehead. Make sure to use the colors of Gryffindor (burgundy and gold) and complete this costume with a homemade wand. If you’re dressing up the kids, you can include Ron and Hermione to make it a group costume!

3. Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Have some blue and black makeup? Pair that with red lips, a red long-haired wig, a funky dress and some pumps and you’re good to go! Sally has bluish-gray skin on account of being a dead doll, so you can put away the blush this Halloween. To finish off the look, use some black eyeliner to create her stitched-together look on your face and arms.

4.  Linguini from Ratatouille

This one is easy—if you have curly brown hair (or a wig), all you need is a chef’s outfit complete with a hat. If you want to add Linguini’s sidekick Remy into the mix, dress your little one up as a rat and carry him or her around on your shoulders.

5. Wednesday from The Addams Family

Wednesday Addams has a creepy pale look, a black school-girl dress and likes to do her long black hair up in braids. You can easily substitute a wig for the hair, and lightly dust your face with some white makeup. Throw on a business dress shirt or skirt with some black tights to pull off her look, and don’t forget to be ultra-sinister to get into character.

Being Chucky simply requires some bright-colored clothes, oversized glasses and cute red hair. If you aren’t already a red head, grab yourself a wig, and find some bright green shorts, red Chuck Taylors and a blue space T-shirt. Hello, Chucky!
