Halloweekend is on the horizon, which probably means you've done the inevitable: left your costume to the last minute.

There's nothing scarier than the panic that accompanies procrastination but luckily, we at Highsnobiety are prepared.

From tried-and-true classics to headline-making moments from 2021, our Halloween costumes are taking shape as an eclectic range of people, places, and things.

No "Mystery Gala Guest" or sexy Squid Game here, just vibes. Here's what team Highsnobiety is dressing up as — and what we hope to see at this weekend's festivities.

Sam Cole, Associate Style Editor

Someone said Kanye looked like the father of Frank Ocean's Met Gala baby. I'd love to see someone and their child bring that to life.

Dre Rojas, Social Media Director

I'm going as a sexy void (black morph suit with corset, miniskirt, and big boots). If I go out and anyone says I'm Met Gala Kim, I'll lose it.

Jake Silbert, News Editor

I fully support anyone motivated enough to really get into the Halloween spirit and get dressed up. I especially appreciate the classics: vampires, Frankenstein's Monster, all the rest. But my all-time favorite costume is the classic bedsheet ghost with two eyes cut out. It's super low-effort compared to all the extravagant get-ups you see on social media, but it's A) comfortable and B) charmingly old school. Upgrade a ponytail and some heels and you're basically Kim at Kanye's Donda event.

Isabelle Hore-Thorburn, Weekend Staff Writer 

Working in social media, there is nothing I fear more than the clown emoji but in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to go full Grimaldi. This Halloween, I’d like to see any variation of the Jacquemus grape costume. Also whatever the hell January Jones is doing always.

Tora Northman, News Editor

I’ve got two Halloween parties planned, so I obviously need two costumes. My boyfriend and I are going to go as Neo and Trinity from The Matrix — it's easy and something I can pull together from my already existing wardrobe. I’m also going to do Britney’s “Hit Me Baby One More Time” look, which surprisingly, I can also pull together from my wardrobe...

Jake Indiana, Senior Features Editor

While in Munich last month, I took advantage of the beginning of Oktoberfest for a truly couture shopping experience: buying myself a pair of proper Lederhosen (suspenders, buckles, straps, and all) from a store offering made-to-measure traditional trachtenmode. I live in Berlin, which means it is entirely black (natürlich). I’ll be sporting it in the clubs this Halloweekend to escort my friend, who is appearing as their alter ego, Larda the Bavarian Milkmaid.

Alexandra Pauly, Style Writer

I'm going as Maya from the work of art that is Pen15. (My best friend will be accompanying me as Anna.) It's the opposite of a sexy Halloween costume — I can't wait to break out the retainer I've somehow managed to hold onto since middle school.
