Channel Christina Ricci and bring out your RBF for a Wednesday Addams Costume. Braid your hair, wear a white collared shirt under a black dress, and voila!

There are terrifying versions of this costume, just change the makeup and check out a youtube tutorial, but I’m sticking with the not-nightmare-fuel version and suggesting you go with a flannel shirt, jeans, a floppy hat, and some eyeliner stitches!

6. Rosie the Riveter

A blue shirt and a red bandana are all you need to become this feminist icon. Don’t forget to flex!

If you don’t feel like talking to people, consider making it a part of your costume and go as a mime! If you’ve got a black and white striped shirt, perfect. If not, any black clothing will do the trick just fine. Guitar optional.

8. Alex from A Clockwork Orange

This is a wow of a costume, and it’s done completely with makeup! Just get yourself some facepaint, solid colored clothing, and a youtube tutorial like this. White dots optional.

Take on an icon’s most iconic look with a David Bowie costume. You can pretty much wear whatever you want, but make sure that lightning bolt is on point!

11. Black Swan

Become a star with this easily recognizable and extremely freaky movie homage! For clothes, black dance clothes will serve you well if you don’t have a black feathered tutu lying around. The real key is the makeup. Find a video tutorial here.
