Halloween is right around the corner, so your mind is probably racing about what to dress up as this year. If you鈥檙e anything like us, the hardest part will be sifting through countless costume ideas inspired by pop culture, groups and even pets, and finding one (or five?) that knocks it out of the park. While trendy costumes are already all around us, let鈥檚 not forget about some super #TBT costumes that were around, say, last century. A new video from Mode Studios shows popular costumes from the past 100 years that you should consider if you want to *really* stand out at this year鈥檚 costume party. Check out the whole video below (just three minutes long!) to see the full costumes.

Early 1900s

We learned that costumes that from the early 1900s were聽SUPER creepy. The video鈥檚 depiction of ghost-like and zombie-like creatures, witches and most of all, Minnie Mouse gave us serious goosebumps. Something about the look of the full-face masks takes these already creepy聽costumes to a whole new level of spooky.

Mid 1900s

We have to say, the 1945-inspired devil costume before this is pretty cute, but the 1955 cowgirl costume has to be our fave because of聽its undeniably cute,聽vintage-y look. By 1965, people finally realized that cat-inspired costumes were purrrfect for this holiday 鈥 we loved the bodysuit, big hair and fuzzy ears going on with the version in the video.

Late 1900s

Creepy costumes creeped back into popularity in 1975 with a slightly spooky Raggedy Ann Doll costume 鈥斅爕ou could def make this one cute if you wanted to go that route too. Grecian goddess getups were all the rage in 1985, and for good reason: You can make this costume out of everything from a white dress to a bed sheet. Grungy聽bumblebees came on the scene in 1995, complete with braided pigtails (the epitome of 鈥90s hair trends).

Early 2000s

Britney Spears, anyone? YES. In 2005, the Britney-inspired schoolgirl costume was a hit, andso was that classic tied-up belly shirt we all remember. Following the Britney craze was the Kim Kardashian kraze (that鈥檚 how Kim would spell it anyway, right?) with her infamous Paper Magazine cover look predicted as a hit this Halloween. Butt pads (probably) required for this one.

Regardless of what look you鈥檙e going for this Halloween, this video can give you some really great ideas. Start with this one: Instead of thinking about what you want to dress up as this year, think about what *era* you want to emulate and go from there! It鈥檚 a unique way of approaching this dress-up holiday, which will hopefully result in you winning Best Costume at your friend鈥檚 Halloween bash.
