Trying to figure out what to dress up as for Halloween tends to be at least a little stressful. So why not grab your three best friends and be the four most iconic older women on television? The Golden Girls costumes are guaranteed to cause some laughs and win you any contest—and you don’t even have to go to St. Olaf to get them!

Target now has Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), Rose Nylund (Betty White), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan), and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) costumes from Toynk. All four adult costumes come with the dress and jewelry (Sophia’s also comes with glasses), but you’ll need to get the wig — and, in Sophia’s case, the bag — separately.

These show-stopping looks are not available in stores, so you’ll have to order them online through Target. Each one comes in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes and is under $70.

Whether you’re a dry-humored Dorothy who struggles to find a date, an air-headed Rose who loves telling stores, a Southern belle Blanche who isn’t afraid to pounce on a man, or a Shady Pines-avoiding Sophia who never fails to keep the other three in their place, these Halloween options are too good to pass up.
