Easy Best Friend Halloween 2017 Costume Ideas That You & Your Bestie Will Love
The best part of Halloween is dressing up with your BFF. If you're stumped on what pair you and your bestie should go as this year, these easy best friend Halloween 2017 costume ideas are perfect for any true blue dynamic duo. Personally, all through grade school, high school, and college my best friend and I dreamed up some scary (vampires), or silly (we dressed up as each other) costume ideas for trick-or-treating, parties, and for our stints waiting tables. One year we both went as babies just so we could wear our pajamas to work and have an excuse to act cranky to customers.
You and your bestie likely share everything, so getting into the Halloween spirit is a perfect time to brainstorm an epic costume worthy of a thousand snapchats, and Instagram likes. From Thelma and Louise, to Lorelai and Sookie, to twin Wonder Woman superheroes, you can make most costume from items you already have in your closet, or by getting some new duds you'll wear this fall anyway.
If you feel too self conscious to walk around like Lady Gaga on the regular, Halloween is the time to become your wildest fantasy by dressing how you've always wanted to. Check out these best friend Halloween costume ideas to for your inspiration.
