These Halloween costume ideas for women are fun, unique, and creative. Dress up as a French kiss, email, little white lie, letter to Santa, or a kissing booth!

Before the tips, a quip from Bella Swan in New Moon (The Twilight Saga):

“More than anything, I wanted to be fierce and deadly, someone no one would dare mess with. Someone who would scare Sam Uley silly. I wanted to be a vampire.”

Women’s Halloween Costume Ideas

If you want to get really creative, host a Halloween Costume Exchange Party in preparation for creating the most unique costume without spending a lot of money. This is one of my all-time favorite Halloween articles.

eMail inbox or E-Male: Dress up like a man (wear a man’s suit, perhaps) and tape an “E” onto your chest. You can be email or E-male  – this easy homemade Halloween costume for women is comfortable, as well as a great conversation starter!

Gypsy Fortune Teller: This would be my favourite Halloween costume – go to the thrift store, and buy clothes and accessories that make you look like a gypsy. Add the fortune teller aspect by pinning fortune cookies all over your gypsy attire. Carry a deck of Tarot cards.

Family Tree: Dress up like a tree, in brown tights and a brown t-shirt. Write the names of all your ancestors with a gold paint pen in large letters all over the tights and t-shirt. If you want the full tree effect, add a bird’s nest to your head, or a wreath of leaves and twigs.

Fireworks: Find a black body suit, and paint all over it in bright neon colours (clothing paint). Splatter colorful designs all over — make sure you paint your clothes BEFORE putting them on. If you have long hair, pull it all up in a pony tail and add sparkly barretts. Being splashy fireworks is definitely a creative Halloween costume idea for women.

Flasher: Wear a trench coat with flesh-coloured tights and a beige t-shirt underneath. Attach two camera flashes (if you can find them – they’re not exactly easy to buy these days) to a belt in front of your private parts. When you open the trench coat, activate the flashes. (Okay, so this has to be tweaked to be a women’s Halloween costume — but it’s certainly a unique, easy costume to make at home!).

Flower Power: Find a costume made of roses or tulips, and attach an electrical cord somewhere behind you. Think of it being a tail (the source of the electricity on your flower power!). Let drag it behind you – but don’t make it too long, or people will step on it.

Mother Nature: I love the idea of dressing up as Mother Nature for Halloween! Put your hair up in a messy mess, and entangle leaves, vines, twigs, etc in it. You could wear a green shirt with “Freak” painted on it. Glue more leaves and twigs all over your body.

Gift: Who do you want to give yourself to this Halloween? This is a fun costume for women: wrap a cardboard box with Christmas gift wrapping paper, cut arm holes and a head hole so you can wear it. Add bows and ribbons, and a gift tag. Add a bow to the top of your head. You’re a Christmas present for Halloween!

Gold Digger: Wear a gold dress or track suit, and put gold glitter in your hair. Don’t forget the gold glitter make-up for your face, glitter in your lip gloss, and gold nail polish. Carry gold-painted rocks in a bag, and a gold shovel for digging. If you’re married or in a relationship, make your partner a miner.

Kitty Litter: Dress in black from head to toe, such as in a body r track suit. Draw a kitty nose and whiskers on your face, and add a headband with cat ears. Pin a kitty cat tail to your bummy. Then, add litter such as gum wrappers, cigarette butts, chocolate bar garbage, etc, all over your body. Don’t forget the coffee cups – they work great as litter.

Letter to Santa: Take an old white pillowcase or a white sheet (like you used to make ghost Halloween costumes out of). Cut out arm and head holes. Use a black felt to write Santa’s address on your chest: 1221 Candy Cane Lane, North Pole, HOHOHO.

Little Girl in PJs: This is an easy costume for women – wear your cutest pajamas, and put your hair up in pigtails or braids. Add freckles and carry a teddy bear. This is an easy costume to make at home. It’s not necessarily the most creative women’s Halloween costume, but it is cute!
