Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The Netflix series that released last Halloween may as well serve to be a Halloween inspiration this year. When we first met Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina in 2018, she was a teenage witch embracing her mortal side alongside her family’s witchy legacy. The second season, which came soon enough earlier this year, saw the teenage witch transform to a darker witch as the supposed daughter of Lucifer.

Easy to pull off, and you can add an oomph of white contact lens to channel the princess of hell, because the queen is, well, Lilith. You can try to be her as well, you know, when she was Madam Satan, donning body con dresses and wavy hair. The options are endless and the three Weird Sisters is a good catch for three friends trying to be in sync this Halloween.
Any character from Netflix’s hit series can work as your Halloween look inspiration. When the series first came out in 2016, it so happened that Eleven, a character played by Millie Bobby Brown, became the most popular Halloween costume of that year. Years down the line, the additional characters have only inspired more. With the latest season, the sailor-inspired outfit of Robin and Steve may take home the trophy of best costumes this year. Don’t forget to carry one ice-cream scoopers for that extra sweetness and authenticity.
HBO’s high-school drama is a hotspot for Halloween costume ideas because there are just too many characters and their cool outfits to choose from. Kat’s good-girl-done bad style can be sported with a t-shirt and a corset combo. Jules’ nostalgic outfits feature glittery tops, slip dresses and heavy accessories which can be easily pulled off even at work on Halloween day. For a daring Jules’ outfit, you can try her own Halloween look where she donned long white slip dress, angel wings, and runny makeup.

The Emmy award-winning series is iconic for a number of reasons. The show’s creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has not only won the world but has stamped her style.

If your friend agrees to wear a priest costume, then hands-down you will win the best duo this Halloween.
The heartwarming series based on Diana Gabaldon’s book is beloved for reasons such as time travel, the power of true love, and epoch-making costumes. The show set in the backdrop of Scotland and New World (America) sets you in a frenzy of a fantastical world, but let’s be honest, it is very hard to find such costumes online. Many Outlander fans have sewed the Scottish costumes themselves to wear for Halloween, and if it means reliving the era you want to be in and fall in love at the most romantic period, then DIY is worth it.
This one is for you and your best friend to basically prove your bond be the type A heroines for Halloween.

Okay, so the reason why Ali Wong has made it to this list full of TV shows is that she is a Halloween sensation, nevertheless.
