After spending all of your precious time—and money—putting together the perfect Halloween costume, of course you’ll want to post it on social media to show the world just how much you nailed it. And following a year when most of us couldn’t spend the holiday with our loved ones, who wouldn’t want to show off their 2021 plans on Instagram? But you’ll need the perfect Halloween caption to accompany your killer post.
Figuring out the caption can be the most difficult part of getting that perfect ‘gram. The good news is that All Hallows Eve allows for endless puns—seriously, go wild with “witch” and “boo”—whether you’re going for cute, funny, or basic, plus tons of captions inspired by your favorite spooky songs and films. And don’t worry: There are plenty of options for friends and couples, too.
Whether your costume is super-specific (witches and ghosts, we got you) or you need a one-liner that’s both silly and spooky, don’t waste your precious time coming up with your own Instagram caption—there’s too much else to do on the big night.
Just in time for October 31, we’ve done the hard work for you and put together the best Halloween caption ideas on the internet, meaning you can focus on trick-or-treating, snacking on candy, binging scary movies, and enjoying the holiday with friends and family instead.
