This year was huge for pop culture! From the box office bang with the recent bubbly and pink Barbie Movie to the goth Netflix hit Wednesday. There are so many things that happened this year that you can draw inspiration from for DIY Halloween Costumes! Here are a few ideas:

Pop Culture Costumes for 2023

  • Barbie: Barbie is of course going to be EVERYWHERE this year (I even has some barbie inspo in this post!). There are so many different ways you can do a Barbie costume! Her looks are endless and Amazon has a ton of costumes to choose from. My favorite are her cowgirl look and her rollerblading look!
  • The Little Mermaid: The Little Mermaid was released earlier this year, so I’m sure we will see a lot of Mermaids out in full costume glory for 2023. There are so many ways you can do a mermaid look. A simple mermaid skirt with a Mermaid top would be a perfect mermaid look!
  • Beth Dutton from Yellowstone: With the final season of Yellowstone premiering in November, the hit show will be on everyone’s minds on October 31! Her look would be so easy to create with a Sherpa Lined Jacket and some Boot Cut Jeans.
  • Wednesday Addams: We all know and love the creepy and kooky family, but thanks to Wednesday on Netflix we have a ton of inspiration to pull from if you want to go goth this year! I have some cute inspo below, but for her classic look, try this dress with some chunky Mary Janes.
  • Mario & Luigi: With the release of the hit movie back in April, I’m sure we will be seeing a lot of these plumbers this Halloween! Amazon has some cute costumes to get these looks, but stay tuned for a cute Princess Peach costume later in this post!
