2019’s Easiest Halloween Costumes (That You Can Wear Again)

Halloween is coming and let’s face it, you’re not prepared, you can’t be bothered, and you’re not even sure you wanna go to your flatmate’s cousin’s roommate’s party. 

We’re here to make life a little easier for you. Instead of buying another costume that you’re never going to wear again; be a little more savvy and a lot more sustainable and build a costume out of pieces you already own or can buy and will definitely wear again.

Here are our favourite 2019-centric, screen-inspired costumes.

A PEAKY BLINDER, PEAKY BLINDERS

Is it a costume or is it a trend? The fifth-season of the Cillian Murphy-led show returned to our screens in late-summer with as much gangster-swag as ever. The bad boys of Birmingham are dripping with cool and given that our latest collection, Heritage, takes inspiration from the Shelbys – you’ll be on trend for the rest of the year in the tweed and herringbone suits and separates.

Leave the razor blades at home.

THE HOT PRIEST, FLEABAG

Going as a member of the clergy for Halloween is no new idea but Fleabag’s Hot Priest is a cut above the rest. The nameless character wooed the nation while he wooed the other nameless character and his Big Priest Energy is the key to recreating this look. You definitely already own most of this kit but if not, it’s easily done. Fashion a collar out of some white card and keep it tucked in with the collar buttons or safety pin.

BYO gin in a tin and…coconut, I guess.

THE JOKER, THE JOKER

Fortune favours the bold. And bold you are in this get-up. The make-up is gonna be all you but cop a red suit, green shirt, and brown shoes all from TOPMAN. Slick the hair back with some yellow or green water-soluble paint and go hard on the makeup.

FREDDIE MERCURY, LIVE AID

If you’ve seen Bohemian Rhapsody then the opening scene, debuting this outfit, probably made you want to drop what you were doing and pick up the closest instrument. An icon for the ages, Freddie’s most famous look is arguable his get-up for Live Aid in 1985. Slim light blue jeans, a white tank, black belt, and armband are the key here and make sure the sneakers are white too!

Hair slicking and faux mo are both essential.

AGENT TENCH, MINDHUNTER

Set in the late ’70s to early ’80s, the costume department on the set of this Netflix hit show is all about blues, browns, and yellows. While Harry Styles is doing his best, this hasn’t quite made a comeback yet but we think we can get you most of the way there. Agent Tench is smart, calm, and carries a huge presence. He’s cool. Just look at that photo. While the military ‘do might be a step too far for you, sprinkle some talcum powder (or spritz some dry shampoo) in your hair to get the salt n’ pepper effect.

JESSE PINKMAN, EL CAMINO

Poor Jesse. Life’s been rough to him but at least his clothes are easily copied. El Camino gives the fans what we’ve been waiting for five years for with a look at Jesse’s life immediately after he makes his escape from sadistic Todd and family.

Of course, a beanie is a must but also some not-skinny jeans, brown jacket, and trainers are easily replicated from any wardrobe. A prop cigarette and some stick-on scars will do the rest.

TONY, AFTER LIFE

The (surprisingly) feel-good show of the summer features a bereaved Tony (Ricky Gervais) struggling with the loss of his wife and living his life with abandon whilst trying to cope with his new world. Despite being caustic and rude, Tony is actually a pretty lovable guy and is one of the year’s best fiction characters.

Ricky Gervais famously loves a v neckline – “it gives me a neck” – and almost always pairs that with some original fit jeans. BYO witty one-liners and maybe ask a pal to go as a retirement village nurse…

Check out our interview with After Life’s Mandeep Dhillon (Sandy) here.

ZACH GALIFINAKIS, BETWEEN TWO FERNS: THE MOVIE

Bringing the viral sensation to Netflix for a feature-length film, this is one costume that’s super easily to replicate (especially if you have a beard). Blazer, jeans, brown chukka boots = done.

Bring a couple ferns, or to keep your hands free, pin a fern leaf to each shoulder.

ZACH DEMPSEY, 13 REASONS WHY

The cool kid on the block, reap high school vibes with a classic Zach Dempsey look. Not necessarily the good guy, very certainly not the bad guy, this is a Halloween look you can wear every other day.

Preppy with an athletic twist, Zach’s look is all about mixing up staples with off-pitch pieces. Try a pair of jeans with a sport-style jersey and add a pair of everyday sneakers to kick about in. This is a comfy costume that you won’t want to take off.

LISA McQUEEN, LINE OF DUTY

Is there anything scarier than someone you can’t trust? The steely face says it all but her all-business (bent or straight) attire is easily replicated and very autumn/winter appropriate. Turtleneck, black shirt, wool coat – cosy and practical. BYO ponytail.
