Here's a fact: All Hallows' Eve is only a caramel apple’s throw away. Here's another fact: The O.C. series finale aired 10 years ago this past February. Put these two things together, and what have you got? Some last-minute The O.C Halloween costume ideas. If you happen to be a fan of the primetime soap about a kid from Chino who moves to Newport Beach — and why wouldn't you be? — why not celebrate the tenth anniversary of the iconic show's final episode by dressing up like your favorite character? Welcome to The O.C. Halloween, witch.

Below you will find recipes for several different The O.C.-themed Halloween looks. If you can't find the exact items listed or they don’t work for you for one reason or another, please don’t pull a Summer and go into a rage blackout. Instead, feel free to make all the substitutions and amendments you want; you aren’t baking a cake. Think of the recipes below as a friendly guide to throwing together a The O.C. 'stume rather than an inflexible directive. Let's keep things as breezy as the name of Seth’s sailboat.

Alright, let's get to the garb.
