Halloween may look different this year, but you can still celebrate. Pull out all your best Halloween home decor, get your fill of pumpkin spice everything, stock up on candy, and of course, find a unique costume. If you’re in need of a little inspiration, there are plenty of classic, creative, and funny ideas on Tik Tok. (And while you’re at it, you may also pick up a dance move or two.) You can either literally dress up as a famous TikToker (anything VSCO will do, to be honest, and we’ll get to that in a second), or you can pick your favorite TikToker or Hype House member to emulate. Best of all, you probably have a lot of this stuff at home already, it’s mostly about adding the finishing touches to your cart, like a tie dye hoodie, or beaded necklace.

Here are 2020’s best TikTok Halloween costumes.


@madsheiniger18since Halloween is coming up…👼🏻 ##foryou ##foryourpage ##vsco ##outfit ##twins ##halloween ##angels ##costume♬ calling all the mOnstErs – aaubreymay

VSCO girls are everywhere on TikTok, and even if you’re not one, it’s incredibly easy (and comfy) to look like you are. You just need to wear an oversized T-shirt, put some scrunchies around your wrist, and carry around a Hydro Flask and hipster Fjallraven backpack. Bonus if you walk around saying “sksksk.”

Charli D’Amelio

@charlidameliogot my own song and it just hits different. show me how you “do the charli” while you drink ‘the charli’ using ##charlirunsondunkin!! @dunkin ##ad♬ The Charli – dunkin

Charli D’Amelio (and her sister, Dixie D’Amelio) is one of the most popular TikTok stars on the platform. With over 86 million followers and endless #sponsored ads, there’s no way you haven’t seen Charli on your feed (especially since she and Dixie are the faces of Morphe Cosmetics). Do be Charli, all you really need is a tie-dye oversized hoodie and something very, very branded to show that this is an #ad and you are all about that #spon content.


MAKEMECHIC Tie Dye Cropped Hoodie

It’s a crop top tie dye hoodie, which honestly makes no sense, but it’s the type of thing a TikToker would totally wear, especially Charli.

$24.99 AT AMAZON

#followme Tie Dye Pullover Hoodie

Here’s another hoodie option that’s actually oversized (and comfy!) so you can wear it beyond Halloween.

$29.99 AT AMAZON

A Step Chicken

@chunkysdeadPOV: You’re watching me communicate with the demon in the house♬ original sound – chunkysdead

To know what the Step Chickens are, you need to be *deep* in TikTok. The Step Chickens are @chunkysdead’s cult followers, and @chunkysdead is a popular TikToker who posts usually very inappropriate and dark videos (so FYI, not the best costume for your kid, but maybe you or your teen will appreciate it). Melissa Ong (@chunkyshdead) is big on the athleisure, and she has her own merch shop, so you can always look there for more inspo.

Lemedy Women Padded Sports Bra

@chunkysdead can always be found wearing a sports bra and workout leggings. Sometimes she wears her Step Chickens merch, which is hilarious and also simultaneously very frightening.

$20.99 AT AMAZON

Step Chickens Yoga Pants

These are the ones we’re talking about. They have Melissa’s face on them, and they’re pretty…out there. You can always wear regular leggings, too.


Lil Huddy

Lil Huddy, or Chase Hudson, is another TikToker famous for, well, just being on TikTok and doing his thing (and sometimes causing drama with other TikTokers). Chase doesn’t have a specific style per se — he dresses like most teen boys would. We’d suggest wearing a necklace (he can almost always be found wearing one), nail polish, a flannel shirt, and a trucker hat. It definitely helps if you *really* commit and shave part of your eyebrow and have ’90s Leo DiCaprio hair, but that’s asking a lot.

Legendary Whitetails Men's Buck Camp Flannel Shirt

Here’s a standard flannel that Chase might wear. Another option is going for an oversized T-shirt, but this is a warmer option for October.

$34.99 AT AMAZON

Mystiqs Deluxe Edition Lava Rock & Pyrite Beaded Necklace

This necklace (made of lava stones, BTW) is something Chase would totally throw on to add to his ~lewk.~

$19.80 AT AMAZON

OPI Nail Polish in Onyx

Lil Huddy can always be spotted wearing black nail polish, so make sure to paint a couple coats to complete the ensemble.


Roxy Junior's Dig This Trucker Hat

Aw, trucker hats! This takes us back to the early 2000s (before your kid was born, probably). They’re back again, as is the case for pretty much all confusing fashion trends.

$24.00 AT AMAZON

Willy Wonka TikTok

@willywonkatiktokaesthetic willy ♬ Daylight – Joji & Diplo

Willy Wonka TikTok is a guy named Duke Depp who posts videos of himself dressed up as Willy Wonka based on the 2005 version starring Johnny Depp. He dances and mimics Willy Wonka by calling everyone “children,” and it’s pretty hilarious and weird. This one is easy: Just find a coat, oversized sunglasses, wig, and hat.

DEREN Charlie and The Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka Cosplay Costume Coat

Here’sthe red coat Willy Wonka wears — you can snag it on Amazon.

$79.99 AT AMAZON

Bopocoko Bobbed Wig

Here’s Willy’s bobbed hair (make sure to select the brown colored wig).

$18.99 AT AMAZON

My Shades White Oval Round Sunglasses

And to complete the Willy Wonka costume, you’ll need these white, retro sunglasses.

Preteens Now Vs. Preteens Then

This is perfect for a group of friends or family members (it’ll be hard to pull off solo). The premise of this is comparing what 2020 preteens do and dress like versus what preteens in the mid ’90s to early 2000s did and dressed like. If you already have a teen in the house, no need to buy anything. But if you’re dressing up as a teen from ye olde days, we have a few suggestions.

Volcom Men's Crisp Stone Short Sleeve Tee

Everyone owned a Volcom T-shirt, whether you were a teen girl or guy. So, this is a pretty good starting point if you’re dressing up as a teen or tween from the late ’90s and early 2000s.

$16.87 AT AMAZON

Kainier Puka Choker Necklace

Every single 13 year old had or wanted a puka shell necklace. There was no clear explanation as to why this was so popular — it just was.


SO® Low Rise Bootcut Jeans

They’re tough to find, but a pair of low-rise bootcut jeans are a must if you’re planning on going back in time to the early 2000s.


Xloey Butterfly Hair Clips

Whatever you do with your hair, just make sure you pull it back with butterfly hair clips (Lizzie McGuire-style).


The Strawberry Challenge

Back in May, one of the most popular TikTok challenges was extracting bugs from strawberries using salt water. Dress up as the Strawberry Challenge by wearing a strawberry costume (you can also carry about a bottle of water that says “salt water” on it, if you really want to drive the point home).

Smiffy's Women's Strawberry Costume

A strawberry costume is all you’ll need to dress up as the “Strawberry Challenge.”

$23.32 AT AMAZON

Literally, just TikTok

GNPDesignWorkz TikTok Board

This TikTok cutout board is the easiest “costume” to show everyone what you are: a TikTok influencer, duh!


Step Chickens Yoga Pants

These are the ones we’re talking about. They have Melissa’s face on them, and they’re pretty…out there. You can always wear regular leggings, too.


If you don’t want to dress up as anyone from TikTok, you can always dress up as someone on TikTok dressing up as someone or something else. Here are the most popular Halloween costumes people are wearing on TikTok this year.

Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus

@ciaciaxoITS JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoupage ##halloween ##halloweenmakeup ##makeup ##hocuspocus ##winifredsanderson ##hocuspocusmovie♬ original sound – beckywiththealrighthair

Celebrate Halloween, Hocus Pocus style. It may take a little practice to perfect the unique red lip of Winifred Sanderson, but pick up a bright red wig and a green velvet dress, and you’re on your way to a spell-binding night.


@avgtockerI could not keep myself together 😂😂 ##fyp ##tiktok ##halloween ##CostumeByTheFoot♬ original sound – avgtocker

Avocados are superstar fruits. You can put them in smoothies, in salads, on toast, on your face as a mask. You can also put one on your body via this inflatable avocado costume. It may not be as delicious as the real thing, but it’s certainly less messy.

Taco Belle

@aaubreymaythis one is a JOKE.. .💀 COSTUME IDEAS DAY 28: Taco Belle🌮💛😜 ##foryou##fyp##halloween##costumeideas##tacobell##tacobelle##taco##belle♬ calling all the mOnstErs – aaubreymay

If you have a BFF, partner, or family member who wants to go in on a couple’s costume, here’s one that is funny and punny. Pair up for a “Taco Belle” dynamic duo, which combines two beloved things: tacos and Beauty and the Beast’s Belle.

Robin from Stranger Things

@brooklynandbaileyDay 1 of 15!!! For the next 15 days I’m posting a different Halloween costume idea, leading up to the holiday! Lmk if these help you find a costume!♬ original sound – brooklynandbailey

Travel back to Hawkins, Indiana in the ‘80s, when working at an ice cream parlor was cool. This retro Scoops Ahoy uniform comes with a blue romper, Robin name badge, and sailor hat to complete the look. Your Stranger Things-themed Halloween won’t even require a trip to The Upside Down.

Harry Styles Songs

@simoncowellcancelled420i call kiwi🦶##harrystyles ##foryou ##onedirection ##hshq ##fineline ##halloweencostume ##colorcustomizer ##alt ##greenscreen ##oned ##fyp ##viral♬ original sound –

Harry Styles has a number of catchy pop songs, but several of his song names — like “Watermelon Sugar,” “Sunflower,” “Cherry,” and “Kiwi” — also lend themselves to easy, fun Halloween costumes.
