Yeah, I know that you’re probably thinking about the dumb blonde costume and all of the irritating stereotypes that it will promote, but there are far more options than that. And you know what? A lot of the costumes feature blondes who are smart and fierce AF. And those are exactly the type of characters most of us want to dress up as.
The brunettes have had their costume ideas, now it’s time to make it all about the blondes. Click through the gallery to see the best Halloween costume ideas for blondes…or for blonde wannabes.
Sailor MoonFighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight. Never running from a real fight, she is the one, Sailor Moon. Put your blonde hair in pigtails and slap on your best tiara so you can be Serena/Sailor Moon. You can get your cat...or even your dog...involved by having them dress up as Luna. Source
Elle WoodsYou might already channel Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and her love of pink in your everyday wardrobe, but you can always do it on Halloween. This costume earns extra Halloween credit because you're dressed up as Elle Woods who is dressed up to attend that *costume* party. Source
ElevenIf you have blonde hair and you don't want to shave your head, you can be this version of Eleven from Stranger Things. And if you happen to have short, dark hair, a wig will easily work in this situation. Just don't forget your Eggo waffles. Source
Regina GeorgeIf you're going to be someone from Mean Girls, you might as well make it the Queen Bee, Regina George. You could do the *Santa Baby* Regina, or you could do the bra cutout Regina, but the post-accident, prom Regina is always a fun look. Source
TinkerbellGive all of the mermaids and unicorns a rest for a second to be a fairy. There aren't any fairies more famous than Tinkerbell. Put your hair in a cute bun and shrug on a sweet green dress. Then try to work some wings into your costume. Source
Queen ElsaEven if you never, ever want to hear someone attempt to sing *Let It Go* again, you should still try dressing up as Queen Elsa from Frozen. Why? Because you get to wear an icy blue dress and your hair in a fierce side braid. Source
Lizzie McGuireRemember how much you loved Lizzie McGuire's style? Well, why not use it as inspiration for your Halloween costume? Throw on all of the different prints then get your dark-haired BFF to be the equally quirky-cool Miranda Sanchez. Source
Marilyn MonroeMarilyn Monroe just might be the ultimate blonde. The good news is that her famous The Seven Year Itch costume is very simple to recreate. You just need a white halter dress, some red lipstick, and a curling iron. If you have a sewer grate, that is also helpful. Source
Sandy OlssonFirst, you need to decide whether you want to be good Sandy or bad Sandy. From there, you can work on your costume accordingly. If you're a fan of big hair and black, I recommend you take the naughty route. It's up to you if you want bae to dress up as your Danny Zuko. Source
Lady GagaIf you want to be Lady Gaga, there is no shortage of wild outfits for you to take your pick from. You could channel something from a music video or you could take inspiration from one of her *street style* lewks. This is pure *Paparazzi* Gaga. Source
Elle DriverAre you a Kill Bill fan? You could dress up as The Bride, or you could don your best eye patch and nurse's hat and be Elle Driver on October 31. Just be careful of the punch bowl and chocolaty finger prints with your crisp white outfit. Source
Buffy SummersIf you're wondering why you never thought of being Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer before, you're not alone. However, it's a genius costume because you can create it using clothes and a touch of fake blood. Plus, you get to be fierce AF. Source
Daenerys TargaryenYou don't need to have blonde hair that's as white as Daenerys Tagaryen to be the fierce Game of Thrones character, but it does help. I dare you to get creative and see how you can work three dragons into your Halloween costume. Source
Helga PatakiHey Arnold? More like Hey Helga. You don't have to have a black unibrow quite as thick as Helga's to be her on Halloween. In fact, you don't even need to have a unibrow at all. I love the way she recreated the look here. Source
