11 All Black Halloween Costumes To Match Your Soul

Halloween flashes by in a riot of colourful costumes, face paint, and fake blood, so people who enjoy wearing all black everything might feel a bit out of their depth come All Hallow’s Eve. Therefore, you may be looking for some all black halloween costumes so that you can stay firmly in your comfort zone, while still being a part of the festivities. Because nobody likes a party pooper.

Just because you hate wearing colourful clothes doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. In fact, some of the most classic Halloween costumes of all time involve wearing a pitch black ensemble — think cats, vampires, and witches. Besides, you shouldn’t have to water down your personal style in an effort to fit in during Halloween.

Having an entirely black wardrobe doesn’t automatically mean you have to dress up as a “goth” either. Of course, goth girl style is still as trendy as ever and pays homage to the loveable ‘90s trend, but black garments can be super chic too. There are actually a ton of benefits to wearing all black outfits in everyday life and on Halloween: All of your clothes automatically match, black clothes never go out of style, if you spill something on them it’s easier to disguise, and if you get a little hot and bothered they don’t tend to show sweat patches too. So here are some rad, all black Halloween costumes that you can probably pull from your colourless wardrobe.

1. Morticia Addams

Morticia Addams is basically the queen of all black attire — she's like a witchy Dita von Teese and she sure knows how to tread the line between vixen-like vamp and ethereal empress.
