It wouldn’t be Halloween without spotting at least five different Disney character costumes – at least. Disney has managed to take over a lot of things, and Halloween is definitely one of them, with cartoon character costumes and princess outfits regular fan favorites. It doesn’t matter how many years in a row you see girls dressed up as Ariel from The Little Mermaid or a sexy version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast or a racist version of Pocahontas.
Once upon a time, when people spent $75 on a plastic, cheap-looking Halloween costume from Party City, matching costumes were considered corny, nerdy, and eyeroll worthy. Now, in the year 2016, when people spend a lot of time creating their own costume and even more time searching for them on Pinterest, matching costumes are considered cute, fun, and often really creative. This is true for both couples and costumes and best friend costumes.
