Come on, Barbie. It's time for costume parties! Halloween is known as the spooky szn, but this year is all about a fantastic life in plastic, courtesy of Barbie. ICYMI: Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie is one of this year's most highly-anticipated films. Don't just take our word for it — the film spawned the Barbiecore fashion trend when behind-the-scenes pics first leaked two years ago. Since then, A-listers, including Megan Fox and Hailey Bieber, put their own unique spin on sweet bumble gum pink looks, making it the ultimate inspo for all of your costume ideas this Halloween. Talk about impact.
It should go without saying, but Barbie is a literal icon. One of the best things about dressing up as the classic doll for Halloween is that you can tap into nostalgia and relive the fun of dressing up the same way you'd spend hours at a time styling your favorite Barbie dolls when you were younger. Just be sure to add the perfect pop of bright colors, preferably pink. Plus, Barbie has an outfit for every occasion. She could hit the ballet studio or serve boss babe vibes in a pretty pink power suit.
Ready to enter the Barbie world? Scroll ahead for the best Barbie Halloween costume ideas that'll also double as inspo to help you figure out what to wear to the Barbie movie in theaters this July.
