When it comes to Halloween costumes, the ideal outfits are the perfect balance of creativity and comfort. Luckily, Orange Is the New Black group Halloween costumes combine both of those components, while also incorporating one of the biggest shows of the moment. (You can even channel a Ruby Rose costume with this guide!) The best part about an Orange Is the New Black-inspired costume is that everyone in your group of friends can easily be a character. (Seriously, there's like 100 people in the cast.)
Each costume starts with the basics: an orange jumpsuit. I told you comfort would be involved. Of course, we've gotten to know the characters over the past few seasons, so there's tiny details you can bring to each of the individual women.
I scoured the Internet and pulled together accessories for many of the characters, so you'll be all set this Halloween. Whether you want to be the naive Piper, the sassy Alex, the saucy Red, or the sweet Morella, there are a variety of ways that you can channel your favorite Litchfield Penitentiary inmate.
Gather your friends around and check out the Orange Is the New Black group Halloween costume guide below!
Of course, every Litchfield inmate wears an orange jumpsuit. (Plus, you totally have to embody the title of the show!) You can achieve the look with this Adult Orange Prisoner Costume from Party City.
Many of the characters wear gray hoodies, so you can rock one too. I recommend this Danskin Now Women's Dri-More Full Zip Core Hoodie from Walmart.
Now, just combine these basics with any of the character options below.
Option #1: Piper
One of the biggest plot lines in the first season was when Piper was hiding a screwdriver. You can get your very own kids' version (and, you know, a couple other tools), with this The Home Depot - 4 Piece Light Box Tool Pack from Toys 'R Us.
In case you don't already have light blonde hair, you can look even more like Piper with this Jailhouse Adult Costume Wig from Jet.
Option #2: Alex
One of Alex's signatures is her chunky black glasses. You can snag your own pair of Nerdy Glasses from Jet.
Alex also has long dark hair, which you can achieve with this Heat and Styling Friendly Long Hair Cala Wig in Onyx Black from My Diva's Closet.
Option #3: Morello
Morello somehow manages to look glam, even in prison. You'll want to start with a classic red lip, like this Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red from Drugstore.com.
And you'll want to add a lot of liquid black eyeliner as well. This Prestige Liquid Eye Liner in Black from Drugstore.com will bring on the drama.
Option #4: Red
Of course, one of Red's most recognizable features is her bright hair. You can get a similar look with this Fate Stay Night Emiya Shirou Short Red Cosplay Wig from Wigsbuy.
Red also wears glasses on a chain. Whether you have a prescription pair of your own or snag some plastic frames, you can finish the look with this Beaded Eyeglass Chain from Forever 21.
Option #5: Stella
In order to channel the sultry Stella, you'll need short dark hair. This Newest Attack on Titan Eren Jaeger Short Dark Brown Anime Cosplay Wig from AliExpress is a good start.
Stella famously has a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tattoo. You can rock some similar (temporary!) ink, thanks to these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Temporary Tattoos from Target.
