Halloween is fast approaching and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what to dress up as. And when you’re tired of going as the usual suspects – witches, werewolves and ghosts – you need to think outside the box. When you’re looking for inspiration, there’s no better place to start than TV. Whether it is a busy new Netflix show or an established series that released a new season this year, there are plenty of opportunities to find a costume.
Quite a few popular shows this year depicted the lives of real people, including Invents Anna and Pam and Tommy. While dressing up as the subjects of these shows might have been a bit random before, their popularity has created a cultural conversation around their lives. If you wear big, black glasses and speak with a vaguely European accent, people will most likely make the Anna Delvey connection.
Below, we’ve rounded up the best Halloween costumes from TV shows released in 2022. There are options for those who are single, those who are coupled up, and even those looking for a clever group costume idea. Some are easy to assemble, while some require you to go all out. Either way, you want a cool costume that’s neither cliche nor obscure. Since these looks are taken from acclaimed, popular series, people are sure to recognize who you’re dressed as—and they’ll appreciate that you didn’t just grab a cape and call it a day.
