Five Festival-Friendly Halloween Looks to Try This Year!

Spooky Rave Skeleton 

Spooky Rave Skeleton 

There are many ways of interpreting a skeleton costume, but the simplest and most rave-friendly is the bodysuit option. This voodoo glow skull costume will cling to your bones to showcase your bod and comes with garter clips, along with matching bone thigh highs to create the ultimate creepy look. It also glows in the dark, so your costume will only come more alive at night. Well, as alive as a skeleton can get, that is.

Another great option that shows a little less skin is this skeleton catsuit. It still hugs your curves, so it’s super flattering but will keep you warmer when shuffling the night away.

Sexy Leopard

When in doubt, throw on some animal print and whiskers and BOOM, you’ve got yourself a fabulous costume. I’m personally a huge fan of leopard print and this mesh jumpsuit from Pretty Little Thing is sure to turn heads.

The mesh material will keep you cool in the crowds, while the long sleeves will protect you on that brutal walk back to the car at the end of the night. Add some whiskers and if you know your way around a makeup brush, try drawing some leopard-esque spots on your face to really elevate your look. Meow!

Maddy from Euphoria 

It’s no secret that HBO’s show Euphoria is going to inspire some of the hottest costumes this Halloween. It-Girl Maddy is sure to dominate the holiday, but how do you dress up as a troubled teenager with a closet-full of amazing matching sets and make it festival friendly?

Thankfully, this new Euphoria set from I.AM.GIA is both comfortable and pulled directly from the show, so you can emulate your favorite character while getting down. Make sure to snag both the pants and top to complete the look. They’re both currently on pre-order but are set to be delivered before Halloween!

Out-Of-This-World Space Cowboy

Yeehaw! Fan of the wild west and the unexplored realms of space? Combine these two iconic looks to create the space cowboy! Both intergalactic and classic, this fringe wrap top from Dollskill will have you looking like the coolest cow/alien wrangler at the festival.

Pair it with a fun cowboy hat and some light-up blasters (check festival guidelines to make sure they’re allowed) and you’ve got yourself the ultimate costume. Depending on what vibe you’re going for, you can customize this to your liking!

Pikachu Onesie

Pikachu or Detective Pikachu!

What better way to ensure you’re comfortable all-night-long than to spend the night in a onesie?! They’re cute and cozy and will hold up against even the most aggressive of dance moves. Feel free to drop it low in this costume, just be prepared to get a lot of compliments.

Although onesies come in all characters and colors, we’re loving this Pikachu one. If you’re a fan of Pokemon, throw it back to your childhood and pay homage to this electrifying, yet cuddly favorite by rocking this onesie. Plus, you could also pair it with a brown hat to be detective Pikachu. Comfy and current!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
