Halloween is just around the corner and whatever your plans are this year, there are some really great pop culture moments you can recreate.

You could dress up as Squid Game characters or copy literally any of the outlandish looks from the 2021 Met Gala. It's way more fun to dress up with someone else though, so if you have a partner or a BFF that's down, then here are some fun costume ideas suitable for a duo.

Guy & Molotov Girl From 'Free Guy'

Free Guy was a surprisingly heartwarming and equally exciting movie that blurred the lines between video games and reality. For Guy's outfit, you'll need a shirt like this light blue polo ($22.73) or this light blue button-up ($29.75) a striped tie ($19.99) and beige khakis ($25.73). You can complete the look with a name tag, coffee cup and some sunglasses.

For Molotov Girl's costume, you can get brown faux leather pants from Dynamite for $64.95. It's a great pair of pants that you can continue wearing all year round.

For accessories, you can get this small burgundy scarf for $12.99, these aviator sunglasses for $23.99 and these black suspenders for $18.99, all on Amazon Canada. Throw on a white shirt and black boots and you're ready to save the NPCs!

Beetlejuice & Lydia

Beetlejuice is a classic spooky movie and the wedding scene is ICONIC. To get Tim Burton's character looks, you'll need to pick up some face paint ($22.99), a burgundy suit ($199 and you can re-wear it!) and a white wig ($16.99). Under the suit, you can just wear any white shirt you have or go all out and get this ruffle shirt for $48 from Asos. Make sure to complete the look with a black bow tie for $9.99.

For Lydia's look, you can grab a ruffled red dress like this one from PrettyLittleThing for $75 and a roll of red tulle($9.12) for the veil. Pick up some fake roses and makeup from your local Dollarama and use a ton of hairspray to fluff up your 'do. These black boots from Amazon ($54.99 ) will complete the look.
