Halloween Costume Inspo From Your Five Favorite Female TV Characters

Only one month 'til fright night.

It's October 1st and you know what that means: Halloween is just around the corner! Many gals meticulously plan their fright night costumes months in advance. But just in case you're not one of them, you still have time and we have inspiration that is more "Netflix and chill" than "haunted house".

We know you've spent the last year binge-watching everything from the freshman season of the '80s-inspired comedy, GLOWto the seventh season of Game of Thrones. So why not channel your TV-watching into unique Halloween garb? We've assembled the most fab five female characters of 2017 to help you put together an easy, yet instantly-recognizable Halloween getup that will almost guarantee you a prize for Best Costume.

Whether you're a Betty, Barb, Offred, Ruth or Dany, check out five Halloween looks inspired by our favorite television series:

Offred from The Handmaid's Tale

This Hulu hit is beloved by critics and viewers alike, so why not dress as one of 2017's most iconic TV characters? As an added bonus, Offred's attire is easy to replicate. Given that she's the lead character in a dystopian thriller, it gives your costume a spooky edge that's perfect for Halloween!

Daenerys from Game of Thrones

Just because the seventh season has come to an end, doesn't mean you have to let go of your fave dragon queen. Channel your inner Khaleesi and enter the party fierce AF, wearing a rebellious caped ensemble and knee high boots. Finally, make like Emilia Clarke and get a permanent platinum blonde dye job, or opt for something a little less permanent in the form of a long blonde wig.

Betty from Riverdale

Season 2 of the hit CW show is back October 11th. Rock a costume inspired by the one and only Betty Cooper. Opt for pearls and pastel from head to toe in a look that even Alice Cooper would approve of. Or, alternatively, go to the dark side courtesy of a black bob and a lace bustier. Which one is the real B? Only time will tell! But for Halloween, you get to choose.

Barb from Stranger Things

The highly-anticipated second season of Stranger Things  premieres only a few nights before Halloween itself — so what better way to psych yourself up for a scary evening than to binge the show by day, and dress as your favorite character by night? Most people would dress as Eleven but that's so season one. Instead, we recommend you embrace your inner Barb — after all, Shannon Purser was just nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal of the now-iconic character. Plus, all you need to make the transformation complete is a blue puffer jacket, frilly top, mom jeans and of course, the famous Urkell glasses.

Ruth from GLOW

Raid your local thrift store or mom's closet (if you're that lucky) for some vintage '80s exercise clothing and morph into workout Barbie — otherwise known as Ruth Wilder from the hit Netflix series, GLOW. Leg warmers, a spandex bodysuit, and a sky-high 'do are all you need to achieve her glitzy, fierce look and take on Halloween like a champ.
