And, one of the best perks to having a BFF is coming up with DIY best friend Halloween costume ideas, obviously. There are few holidays when you really get to celebrate this significant friendship — each other's respective birthdays and National Best Friends Day, sure — but nothing quite lends you the opportunity to really showcase your otherworldly bond like Halloween.
