25 DIY Throwback Character Costumes No One Else Will Think Of This Halloween

By now, it’s pretty clear that our borderline unhealthy obsession with all things nostalgic has finally come to an end. We’ve pretty much exhausted our once-forgotten memories of 90’s hairstyles and early 2000’s fashion trends thanks to endless listicles, social media memes, and old cast reunions. But if there were ever a time to welcome back nostalgia with open arms, it would be Halloween. Throwback costumes are clever, funny, and adorable, and they always manage to make a statement.

Well, they used to make more of a statement… until literally everyone and their mom started dressing like 90’s TV and movie characters. Now you have to search for a character who is either more obscure or one who isn’t easily mimicked to show everyone exactly how much you love the ’90s and early 2000s. Like, you love it so much, you know about these things that other, normal people forgot about. Peasants.

If you want to do a unique throwback costume this year, you’ve come to the right place. From TV/movie characters that don’t come to mind right away to secondary characters who are secretly cooler than the mains, there’s something for everyone. Check out these throwback Halloween costume ideas and get ready to impress everyone:
