'90s-Inspired Halloween Costume Ideas that Are a Total Blast From the Past

·5 min read

When it comes to thinking up the perfect Halloween costume, you usually want to go for something that isn't going to be worn by a handful of other people at the same party. That's exactly why you should start by throwing it back to the '90s for costume inspiration!

One of the best 1990s options we've seen so far has been Target's version of Golden Girls costumes, which features outfits to dress as Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, or Sophia for a price tag of $69.99 each. Last year, (and not surprisingly) the retailer sold out of those costumes almost immediately! No you can still snag a couple of select costumes.

But don't worry: even if you had your heart set on dressing as one of the Golden Girls and now feel like you can't, there are plenty of other '90s costumes out there that are just as impressive. Prefer big hair and shoulder pads? We've got you covered with '80s-inspired costumes too.

How can you find the best '90s Halloween costume?

Many stores are selling 1990s' costume options, and you can also go the DIY route and make your own costume. Don't forget to check reselling apps like Mercari or even Etsy for costume ideas.
