Let's face it, All Hallows Eve will be looking a little different than it has in years past—okay, a lot different—but that doesn't mean you should hold back from getting into the Halloween spirit. Even if your grand plans consist of a scary movie marathon and a spooky cocktail, dressing up as one of your favorite TV or movie characters is a low-lift way to pretend you're someone else for a night. Did we mention that all of these "costumes" double as (mostly) practical and stylish additions to your wardrobe? Keep on scrolling...and scrolling...because we've got 82 options for your 2020 Halloween escapades.
