It's October, and that means the countdown to Halloween is officially ON. (Seriously, where has the year gone?!) If you've already got your costume locked down, teach us your ways — because we're changing our minds every day. Do we go political? Channel a Snapchat filter? Style ourselves as someone from House Stark?
According to the National Retail Federation, 44% of Americans start shopping for Halloween during the first two weeks of October. So unless you want to resurrect the same ol' witch costume you fall back on every other year, you better start nailing down your options. To help inspire you, we rounded up 31 Halloween costume ideas from — where else? — Instagram. Some of these looks can be achieved with just some glitter and lipstick, while others require a bit more skill. Whatever your level, you're bound to find your best costume yet ahead.
