13 Halloween Costumes Stripped Right From Your DVR

at .  Updated at .

Halloween is just around the corner and picking a costume that's creative, unique and relevant is no easy feat.

If you are looking to gain some inspiration from Hollywood movies, sadly, you'll probably be stuck wearing the same exact thing as every other person at the party or bar.

Instead, think smaller. Let's switch out the big screen for the small screen and turn to your TV and computer screen. Chances are, your perfect costume is recorded somewhere on your DVR just waiting to be played back. 

There have been several TV-inspired Halloween costumes "wins" in the past few years, but 2017 has been one heck of a year for TV shows. 

From diner murder mysteries drenched in sticky maple syrup, to coming of age shows set in totalitarian societies that don't acknowledge women's basic rights, to the glittery female-driven world of 80s wrestling.

Simply put, there's so much versatility in this year's roster, there's something for everyone, regardless of whether you're looking for a solo, couples or group ensemble. 

We've taken it upon ourselves to put together a list of 13 costumes that will help ease your search this all Hallow's eve.

Hopefully, this inspires you to show off your love for all things television. 

1. Riverdale's Josie & the Pussycats

Riverdale's Josie & the Pussycats
This is the perfect costume for a group of friends that are ready to slay Halloween. You can opt for a three or four person ensemble, with each pussycat can showing off their own unique style in their leopard print. Just make sure you have the cat ears – a pussycat would never be seen without the ears. All items can easily be found at any Halloween store!

2. Will & Grace - the Fab Foursome

Will & Grace - the Fab Foursome
It's like 1998 all over again with the highly anticipated reboot of Will & Grace! Grab four of your closest friends and get creative honey. For Will you need your most pristine suit, for Jack you need a collared shirt with a sweater vest and some khakis, for Karen you need a cleavage-baring top, a short skirt, a martini glass and a fiery wig, and for Grace, well, just make sure you don't wear a bra.

3. Supergirl vs. Kara Danvers

Supergirl vs. Kara Danvers
Seeing double? Sometimes Cat Grant thinks she is. Dress up like Supergirl and have your bestie dress up like Kara Danvers. You can find the superhero costume at practically any Halloween store and Kara will require a few pieces from your closet. Keep your superhero identity hidden by pairing a collared sweater with a pencil skirt and those signature thick-framed glasses. You'll have everyone fooled.

4. American Horror Story - Clown Posse

American Horror Story - Clown Posse
For some reason, unbeknownst to me, clowns are "in." While most of your friends will be dressed up as Pennywise from the new movie "It," you need to make a statement as the clown from American Horror Story: Cult. I'm not talking about Twisty either, I'm talking the scary cult of clowns you saw in the previews. Just make sure you ask a makeup artist to do your makeup – all those colors could easily bleed…

5. Stranger Things - Eleven

Stranger Things - Eleven
Talk about perfect timing. If you dress up as Eleven (or really any of the characters) from Stranger Things, it'll coincide with the Season 2 premiere on Netflix. Best of all, Spirit Halloween is carrying a whole Stranger Things costume collection so if you don't necessarily want to be Eleven, you can choose from Joyce, Jim Hopper, Barb, etc.

6. GLOW - Body-Slammin Ruth or Debbie

GLOW - Body-Slammin Ruth or Debbie
GLOW shot onto the scene this summer as the most binge-watched show. In addition to providing tons of laughter and drama, it also gave us a newfound love for 80s style. Replica's of Ruth or Debbie's glitter and spandex bodysuits are available at Spirit Halloween now. Who knows, maybe you'll even body-slam a few people in the costume competition!

7. The Flash - Fastest Man Alive

The Flash - Fastest Man Alive
I'm pretty sure that the minute you put on that one-piece, you'll automatically become the faster man alive. Since The Flash is a DC character, the costume shouldn't be a problem. Most importantly make sure you have the mask and the yellow lightning bolt on your chest. If you're feeling the need, you can always buy the padded suit to give your muscles a bit more definition. Team up with a friend who's unleashing her inner Supergirl for a truly dynamite duo!

8. Age It Up This Is Us Style

Age It Up This Is Us Style
This Is Us makes us laugh, cry and admire the aging process that Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Miguel (Jon Huertas) go through nearly every episode. I took a "Theater Makeup" class in college and one of our assignments was to age ourselves. I'll tell you, it's a tedious but rewarding process. When else are you going to see yourself as an old person, except for when you're actually old. So find a tutorial online and give it a shot – I guarantee you'll be the life of the party!

9. Riverdale's Finest - Bughead and Varchie

Riverdale's Finest - Bughead and Varchie
With secrets, murder and high fashion, it's not a surprise that Riverdale is The CW's new Gossip Girl. There are many lovable characters to choose from so why not simply gather a group and portray them all? Hot Topic recently debuted a Riverdale-inspired collection, which features Jughead's crown hat. Archie fans, dye your hair auburn and wear a blue-and-yellow letterman jacket. Sweet innocent Betty needs a light pink cardigan or that famous crown sweater paired with a collared shirt. My Veronica's can wear a Vixen tee with shorts or a sultry llittle black dress.

10. Game of Thrones - Jon Snow & Daenerys

Game of Thrones - Jon Snow & Daenerys
After all that happened in Season 7 between nephew-aunt duo Jonerys, this is bound to be one of the hottest TV costumes of the Halloween season. Their wardrobe will also be very helpful if it also happens snow or drops rapidly in temperature on Halloween. For Dany, go with a structured dress and cape and for Jon, dig up anything furry that you may find in your grandmother's closet. Just make sure no animals were hurt in the making of your costume.

11. Scandal - The Most Powerful Duo in the US

Scandal - The Most Powerful Duo in the US
With the last season of Scandal upon us, this is your time to go as Olitz. Fitz was once the most powerful man in America and now Olivia takes that title as Mellie Grant's Chief of Staff. Secretly, she's also running B6-13, an organization that holds the most power and one she fought so diligently to destroy. For Fitz, put on your best suit and tie. For Liv, find the most fashion-forward trenchcoat. The white hate is optional, depending solely on which version of Liv you're trying to emulate.

12. The Chicago Trilogy

The Chicago Trilogy
When you think of the city of Chicago, Chicago PD, Chicago Med and Chicago Fire probably come to mind. These are the real heroes, saving lives, fighting crime and taking down bad guys. Team up with your friends to pay your respects to the show by rocking Severide's fireman suit, Burgess' cop uniform, and doctor Rhode's medical scrubs. Dick Wolf would be proud.

13. The Handmaid's Tale - Red Robed Statement

The Handmaid's Tale - Red Robed Statement
The Puritanical red robe is all the rage right now thanks to Handmaid's Tale. I'm not kidding, since Margaret Atwood's novel was turned into Hulu's hottest new series, there's been a spike in searches for the red robes and white bonnets. Women have been primarily using them in protests but if you want to be timely with a statement-worthy costume, this is it. You can find it on Amazon or Etsy.
