5 Characters, 5 Halloween Costumes

Halloween costumes loosely based on certain movie characters allow us all to just go shopping rather than costume shopping. Margot Tenenbaum’s polo dress, Harry Potter’s glasses (a.k.a. his Warby Parker glasses), Penny Lane’s shearling coat; they’re all excuses to add awesome staples to our wardrobe while also creating a Halloween costume.

Yep, it’s the Halloween version of killing two birds with one stone…and we like it. If you weren’t in the mood to peruse the Party City website, here are five movie character inspired costumes for your to choose from. Unlike that Catwoman look, these are picks you could rock at the office any day of the week…
