DIY Classic Costumes

Two young men dressed as Archie and Jughead from Riverdale

Channel your favorite Riverdale characters

The dark and twisting plot of the CW’s Riverdale series lends itself perfectly to a spooky Halloween night.

All it takes for a convincing Archie is a Riverdale Jersey and jeans, plus his iconic red hair. If he’s meeting Veronica, her black dress with lace is our favorite of her many looks. The finishing touch is a long dark wig. 

If you’re going as Archie and Jughead, pair his classic Riverdale accessories with clothes you already have in your closet. Start with a plain white T-shirt and dark pants, and add his South Side Serpents ­biker jacket and gray crown beanie. Shop all TV and movie costumes.

Get rockin' and rollin' to create a joint costume idea with Rockabilly Day of the Dead costumes! First, throw on a sugar skull mask or use some make up to create a traditional Dia de los Muertos look.

If you want to go all out, put on a wig and you'll be ready to get the party started. Coordinate a unique couples costume or group costume that rocks with these accessories and outfits!

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen

Dress up as the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch and the Mother of Dragons for Halloween and you'll be the envy of every lord and lady in Westeros.

To get Jon Snow's signature look, stock up on faux furs, heavy armor, and a Valyrian steel blade to cut down any White Walkers that might crash the party.
