One of the most popular new Netflix original series is Mindhunter, which is about the early days of profiling serial killers. These Reddit users decided to honor the series by dressing up as Ed Kemper and Holden Ford for their Halloween Party.

Inspired by a real-life wrestling women’s wrestling promotion from the ’80s, this TV show offers MANY opportunities to showcase the struggle in Spandex… Halloween Style! went so far as to show you how to create 5 iconic GLOW looks! Thanks,!!

One of the first Netflix Originals, OITNB is still providing plenty of costume opportunities. But do not – for the love of all things woke – I repeat, do not pull a Julianne Hough and put on Blackface to achieve a particular character. Just don’t do it!

Netflix The Crown Halloween Costume

Who says adults get to have all of the Netflix Halloween Costume fun! This adorable Queen Elizabeth II costume featured on feels like it could come right out of one of the later seasons (still to come) of Netflix’s The Crown.

Narcos Making Nachos Costume

Netflix chronicles the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia and the gripping real-life stories of drug kingpins (including Pablo Escobar) who rose to power and riches in the late 1980s.

To celebrate this awesome show, one just has to tap into the terrible fashion choices that ’80s men endured. With that in mind, Halloween enthusiasts are creating some wonderfully unique Narcos inspired costumes, including this group of criminals from Twitter.

And although I can’t say for sure, a snitch told me that this nefarious group was caught in the act of baking up some delicious Nachos.

Godless Western Halloween Costumes

This limited series featuring Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey fame took a unique look at the rugged old west through the eyes of a group of surviving widows.

An empowering story, we are sure to see some equally empowering Halloween costumes that will have been inspired by this amazing show. You can see a few of these beautiful creations at

This zombie comedy is perfect fodder for Halloween couple’s costumes. For this version from Pinterest, the husband actually does look a good deal like Timothy Olyphant, so that helps with the illusion.

Daredevil – The Early Days Halloween Costumes

The first from the Marvel cinematic universe to hit the Netflix streaming service, this series soon became the linchpin in the entire Defenders series which included Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones.

This Pinterest user took the early days of Daredevil to create his costume, before the Devil of Hell’s kitchen went all red and leathery.

A Reddit user decided to go an entirely different route by donning the persona of Matt Murdock, Daredevil’s “Lawyer by Day” persona. Of course, the “real” Matt Murdock would not be taking selfies!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Costume

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina takes a dark twist on the classic Archie character. But with a white-blonde pixie cut wig and a red coat, you too can take on the power of this enchanting Spellman witch for Halloween.

Jessica Jones Halloween Costume

Season 1 of Jessica Jones was a success on so many levels. If you have not yet checked it out, I highly recommend that you do.

As a Netflix inspired Halloween costume, Jessica Jones is great because it’s both iconic and comfortable. Faded jeans, a hoodie, a scarf, some well-worn black boots, and a black leather jacket give you everything you need to pull off this look. Well, that and black hair… so if you don’t have that naturally, you might need a wig.

Netflix Russian Doll Halloween Costume

One of Netflix’s more recent Original Series is this Groundhog-day like show featuring OITNB Alumni Natasha Lyonne and her iconic hair.

Unlike your traditional Russian Doll costume, this Netflix inspired Halloween costume simply requires a big red wig, black clothing, and large sunglasses… and maybe a cup of coffee for good measure. If you want to go the extra mile, carry a large mirror with you.

I haven’t seen anyone pull this off yet… so if you take on this challenge, feel free to send us a picture!!!
