If you’re a fan of Hamilton, it might be a fun idea to dress up as one of the Founding Fathers! And in my opinion, this George Washington costume looks very sophisticated.

I love how classy and dignified this costume is! It’s also a nice and warm costume choice for chilly nights, which is always an important thing to consider.

4. Veronica Sawyer

Musical: Heathers

It’s going to be super common to be one of the Heathers this year, which is why we’re suggesting that you go as Veronica Sawyer! Bonus points if you can get your hands on a blue croquet mallet.

Musical: Anastasia

I absolutely love this Anya costume from Anastasia. It’s unique and cozy. Just make sure to pair it with some lace up boots and maybe a wig.

6. The Beast

Musical: Beauty and the Beast

The Beast is a great costume for anyone who wants to go a bit more classic for Halloween. And the beast headpiece looks very cozy for cold autumn nights!

7. Little Red Ridinghood

Musical: Into the Woods

For the younger musical thespians, Little Red Ridinghood would be the most adorable costume! It’s a classic, so everyone will know who you are, but deep down you’ll know that you’re the Ridinghood from Into the Woods.
