Halloween's just around the corner, so what better time than the present to get your last-minute look together? With guidance from this year's most litty moments in Black culture, we present to you 6 iconic costume ideas from 2019 including Us characters, Normani, and more.

And there's no need to break the bank or stress over Halloween, because we got with these costumes you can put together for the low, low.

  1. Normani’s Motivation

    Get the look: Normani’s video for “Motivation” gave us early 00s realness with her airbrush ‘fit. Throw in hoops and slick your baby hairs down to really nail the look. 

    Bonus points: Show out in front of your friends by hitting the moves from the video!

  2. Ight Imma Head Out Meme

    Get the look: The Spongebob Squarepants "Imma Head Out" meme goes down as the most memorable meme of 2019! Take a page out of this man's book, and make it your costume this year for guaranteed laughs.

  3. Power’s Ghost And Tommy

    Get the look: Even in it's 6th and final season, Power is still dominating juicy office cooler convos every Monday after an episode airs. The show birthed one of the most dynamic on-screen duos, so why not pay homage.

    Bonus: If you're rolling as a trio, you can add a Kanan to your crew!

  4. Simone Biles

    Get the look: Simone Biles is already a decorated Olympian, but she broke the all-time record for most medals by any gymnast at the world championships by winning the balance beam competition just this month. Grab yourself a red, white or blue bodysuit. Then get crafty and make a yourself a medal, or a few.

  5. Hustlers

    Get the look: Got a girl squad and no group costume ideas? Well, this is an easy one for you and your friends to recreate. Whip out the faux furs, slinky dresses, your highest stilettos and walk into the club in unison flashing fake credit cards and you've nailed it.

  6. 'Us'

    Get the look: Copy the cast of Black-ish, and get your whole family to dress up like the characters from Jordan Peele's 2019 thriller Us. Creepy? Yes. Genius? Definitely.

  7. Mary J. Blige

    Get the look: Remember Mary's epic Lifetime Achievemnet Award performance at the 2019 BET Awards? Of course, you do! There are so many Mary looks to choose from but this one is our particular fave (yes, we're bias!). Tbh, all you need is Mary's signature boots and 2-step stomp!
