75 Easy Halloween Costumes for Women That Are Beyond Cute

Now, here's how you make an entrance!

Yes, it's true: You don't need to sit down and DIY one of these easy Halloween costumes for women. You very well could just order one online, or hop in your car, head to a store, and purchase one there.

Still, something always feels a bit missing with those store-bought costume sets! You just can't quite beat that feeling of piecing together all of the components yourself. For starters, you you know that no one will have a costume that's exactly the same, even if they chose the same concept. Plus, you can literally customize everything, from swapping out colors to altering the sizing. Want to create a mash-up of your two favorite superheroes? The more the merrier! You could even dress up like Ree Drummond, which her daughter Paige flawlessly pulled off a couple of years ago.

These ideas are incredibly inexpensive—and come together fast. Ahead, find hilarious, punny looks, delicious-looking foodie getups (yes, there's a pasta costume on this list!), some best friend costumes for you and your bestie, and even a few '80s Halloween costumes that pay homage to Ree's love for the decade (as well as some '70s Halloween costumes!). Some of them are great in a pinch if you need a last-minute costume too. Grab your glue gun and get to crafting!
