The 6 ultimate TikTok Halloween costumes of 2023

While the ol' Halloween classics still stand, like the Hocus Pocus Sanderson Sisters or anything Star Wars, this year you might want to prove how trendy you are and clued in on the world of TikTok.

And to make finding costume inspo from the app all the easier, we've rounded up a few looks, based on 2023's biggest trends and pop culture moments...

1. Barbie (duh!)

Naturally, Barbie was huge on TikTok- both the press looks and the actual film costumes. So, you really can't got wrong with Barbie's (Margot Robbie) hot pink cowgirl look or Ken's (Ryan Gosling) Mojo Dojo Casa House outfits, double sunglasses and all. 

2. Kendall Roy

♬ Succession (Main Title Theme) - Nicholas Britell

The oldest boy himself's now-iconic coat, baseball cap and headphone combo is the perfect easy Halloween look, that is bound to get a few nods of approval from fellow Succession fans.

3. Roman Empire on the mind

Thanks to the latest Roman Empire joke—a viral trend that sees users ask the men in their lives "How often do you think about the Roman Empire?" and as the theory goes, their answer is often...well, a lot. 

So because of that, we're guessing we'll see a lot of Gladiator-esque fits, especially with a Paul Mescal remake reportedly on the way too...

4. Mermaidcore

Mermaidcore has been a huge trend on TikTok and beyond, thanks to Halle Bailey's The Little Mermaid movie. So, if you want to win this Halloween, we'd suggest going for something under the sea-inspired. 

You can either go full-on, with a mermaid costume—or perhaps an Ursala look?—or rock some shimmery blue, a mermaid makeup look, and some mermaid waves.

5. Strawberry girl

Taking inspo from Hailey Bieber's Strawberry Girl makeup look that went viral in August 2023, a tribute to the fruit is such a cute idea for Halloween. Plus it's a good excuse to wear a ton of blush (not that we really need an excuse, of course).

6. Cowgirl vibes


♬ original sound - Taylor

Thanks to Barbie (or should we say Ken's Horse-themed home decor), Taylor Swift's ERA's Tour and of course Beyoncé's Renaissance Tour, cowgirl costumes and outfits are huge on TikTok.  So, you best believe you'll be seeing a lot of cowgirl boots strutting the streets this spooky season.

Now for this look, you can either go Barbie or Beyoncé-themed OR go nostalgic with a Jessie from Toy Story fit, for example.
