When it comes time to thinking about what costume you want to wear for Halloween, television is a great place to turn for ideas. And what better show to turn to for inspiration than Gilmore Girls? Not only would it be amazing to pretend to be Rory or Lorelai for a night, but choosing a creative Gilmore Girls Halloween costume should be relatively simple — the characters wear regular clothes, so it's not like you have to buy anything crazy to look authentic. Because, really, who has time to drop $150 on their Halloween costume?

Gilmore Girls is an excellent choice if it's one of your favorite shows, but the other great thing about it is that there are so many character options. You've got Rory and Lorelai, of course (their early 2000s characters as well as their 2016 characters), but there are also a ton of smaller characters with interesting and distinct personalities who would make clever costumes. The fictional people in Stars Hollow would actually make an amazing group costume, so it's even something you could do as a theme with a few friends. Whatever option you choose, it's bound to get a lot of compliments. To get you started, here are some creative Gilmore Girls Halloween costume ideas you'll want to put together right now:

1. Lorelai And Rory Gilmore

Doing a costume with your bestie? You can't go wrong with old-school Lorelai and Rory, the way we knew them in the very beginning. For Lorelai, opt for a tight pencil skirt and turtleneck, a leather jacket, and a pair of knee-high boots.

2. Luke Danes

If you're looking for a quick last-minute costume, you really can't find anything easier than Luke Danes. His classic outfit of a backwards baseball cap, a plaid shirt, and jeans are probably things you already have in your closet. And thanks to Etsy, you can even find Luke's Diner shirts, mugs, and pins.

Plaid shirt, $20, American Eagle Outfitters; Baseball cap, $14, Go Jane; Blue jeans, $39, Dorothy Perkins; Luke's Diner shirt, $18, Etsy; Luke's Diner mug, $13, Etsy

3. Lane Kim

Want to get a little bit more clever with your Gilmore Girls ideas? Lane is a great option, mainly because her costume is so fun, especially if you're doing Lane from her high school band days. A black mesh top, ripped jeans, and a studded belt are easy to find. Add colorful hair extensions and carry around drumsticks to be authentic Lane.

4. Lorelai And Luke

Warner Bros

If you're searching for a cute and unique couples costume, Luke and Lorelai are such a great, easy option. I prefer the couple from one of their adorable snow scenes, like this one when they went ice skating on Lorelai's front lawn. For Luke, you'll need a plaid shirt and a baseball cap, as well as a green jackt. For Lorelai, a blue top, brown jacket, cute beanie, and colorful scarf will work.

What you'll need:

Green utility jacket, $89, LL Bean; Yankee baseball cap, $25, Nordstrom; Black scarf, $11, Amazon; Plaid shirt, $99, The Outnet; Blue t-shirt, $48, The Outnet; Black beanie, $15, Luxury Divas; Striped scarf, $35, Lord & Taylor; Green jacket, $399, Bloomingdales

5. Paris, Madeleine, And Louise

Warner Bros

Finding a group costume for three people can be tough, but Paris, Madeleine, and Louise are perfect. You'll all need matching plaid skirts and Oxford shoes (or loafers). One of you can be Paris with a crisp blazer, another can be Madeline with a blue sweater, and another can be Louise with a gray cardigan.

6. Sookie St. James

Warner Bros

Dressing as Sookie is super easy — all you need to do is get your hands on a chef's coat. Sookie from the older seasons was always wearing a chef's coat and a bandana, so you'll be super comfortable. Add some bandages as an ode to her infamous clumsiness.

What you'll need:

Chef's coat, $30, Sur La Table; Pink bandana, $5, Amazon; White sneakers, $68, Coggles

7. Jess Mariano

Warner Bros

Dressing as everyone's favorite Stars Hallow bad boy couldn't be easier — all you need is a leather jacket, a gray hoodie, and a pair of boots. Carry around Howl by Allen Ginsberg, one of his favorite books, to get really clever.

Get specific with your GG knowledge and dress as Rory did for her epic 16th birthday party. Who could forget this classic scene where we were introduced to so many of the lovable Stars Hallow residents? To channel Rory on her b-day, throw on some colorful boas and make sure to wear a birthday crown.

9. Rory And Logan

Warner Bros

If you're Team Logan (I, personally, will be Team Jess forever), then you can do Rory and Logan as a cute couples or best friend costume. Find your fanciest ball gown (if you happen to have one laying around) and a blue scarf. Tie a gold sash around your waist and put on some heels. For Logan, all your partner needs is a suit and bow tie. And obviously, you both need umbrellas.

What you'll need:

White gown, $65, Modcloth; Gold scarf, $6, Amazon; Blue scarf, £60, Mango; Sandals, $70, Nine West; Umbrella, $26, Lord & Taylor; Suit, $130, Macy's

10. Emily And Richard

Warner Bros

In my opinion, this is the cutest couples costume you could be for Halloween: Emily and Richard. For Richard, all your partner will need is a suit and bow tie — bonus points for the pocket square. For Emily, you'll need a cardigan, pencil skirt, and a pearl necklace. Bonus points for the Chanel perfume.

Black hoodie, $26, Old Navy; Green cargo pants, $50, American Eagle Outfitters; Denim jacket, $128, Madewell; Round glasses, $41, Trouva; Microphone, $8, Amazon ; Guitar, $22, Amazon; Guitar earrings, $47, Belk

12. Revival Lorelai And Rory

Warner Bros

Old school Lorelai and Rory might be more well-known, but revival Lorelai and Rory are a little more fun and colorful. Channel Rory's adult vibes with printed shorts and a matching tank, and add a colorful turban headband and loose vest. For Lorelai, a printed dress or wrap dress works perfectly, and don't forget the straw hat and sunglasses. Oh, and obviously two matching lace parasols.

Purple tank top, $155, Style Bop; Printed shorts, $13, ThredUp; White vest, $13, BCBG Generation; Lace parasol, $9, New Chic; Printed turban, $6, SheIn; Printed shift dress, $125, TheRealReal; Straw hat, $18.19, With Chic; Large sunglasses, $320, Rebecca Taylor
