Being lovers of nostalgia, Saved By The Bell is one of our all-time faves here at Brit + Co, so we had to recreate the cast’s looks for Halloween. The best news is that you can order the specific pieces for this epic group costume on Amazon Prime. I found the rest of these cheap Halloween costumes at our local Goodwill in one go. With a few minor tweaks and DIY elements, I was able to bang out these cheap group Halloween costumes in one day! This means you totally got this! Here’s how.


Bayside High Rules!!


How to Be Zack Morris AKA “Preppy”


What you need:

– blue or green jacket

– blue or green spray paint (depending on the jacket you find)

– light denim jeans

– red t-shirt

– converse

yellow wig (I totally used this one and stashed the mustache away for another time)


Time OUT!!!

How to Be Kelly Kapowski


What you need:

– high-waisted light denim jeans

– flat shoes

– suspenders

– white ruffle top

– silver earrings

– that hair!

Muah from Bayside high’s sweetheart! This sexy little number is super easy to recreate with high-waisted jeans being so on trend currently. I actually borrowed these jeans from another co-worker, but you can easily find them at a secondhand store like Buffalo Exchange. Throw on a pair of suspenders and a white top and your outfit is good to go. For Kelly’s trademark high hair, back-comb your hair into a heavy side part and then gently smooth over the top layer and give a major spritz of hairspray. Go big on your blush and pink lipstick!


How to Be AC Slater


What you need:

– peachy/salmon button-up shirt

– light denim jeans

– white sneakers

– the mullet (unless you’re like Michael and have his hairstyle already!)

– gold fabric paint + paintbrush


Michael happened to have a hairstyle that I was able to curl with a tiny curling iron and back comb to get Slater’s infamous mullet-topped curls. For the back part, I stole some hair I cut off of the wig I used for Screech and put it in the netting that came with it and then bobby pinned it to the back of his hair. The shirt was originally long sleeves and I found it at Goodwill. I used gold fabric paint and freehanded a similar design that is on his shirt for an authentic finish.

How to Be Jessie Spano


What you need:

– high-waisted denim jeans

floral shirt

– big hair!

fish earrings

– nude elastic

– pink headband


Wanna talk about that shirt?! Seriously, such a cool Amazon Prime find, It’s not only dead on, but it’s cheap! Finding a wig that is this color could get expensive. For the hair, I found this 15-dollar wig, which had the best shape but was originally platinum blonde. The one I found that looked like her hair out of the gate was sixty dollars. NOPE! DIY mode, GO! I just sprayed brown hair color spray — the kind from the drugstore — and it is perfect! I pinned the wig back on my hair line to let my roots be the front, since my hair color was right for this. It gave it a more realistic finish. If your hair is not the same, just spray it too. The contrast of hair texture in front and behind the hair band is hard to find in an inexpensive wig.

How to Be Screech


What you need:

– white t-shirt

– fabric paint (red, yellow, white, black, peach + blue)

– tall white socks + red shoes

– black pants or long shorts

– black watch

the hat

the hair (needs to be cut a little)

– white fabric square


Screeeeechhhh!! Who doesn’t love to be annoyed by this guy?! The shirt is the signature piece in this look, and let me tell you, the only way to get it is to make it. This was really simple: All you have to do is grab a piece of an old sheet or pillowcase, or any white fabric for that matter. Lay down the fabric and begin to paint a yellow vertical rectangle. Then do the face and hair in white and peach. When that dries, paint on the details of the face and lines in the hair. Add a part of the red background on top and the black dots around the border. If you have pants you can spare, cut off the ends to create his long shorts.

How to Be Lisa Turtle


What you need:

– purple denim jacket

– multi-colored dress

– bangles

– red + black earrings

– scrunchies

– small-barreled curling iron or wig


I scored big time when I found this jacket at a thrift store. You might get lucky, but you may be better off finding a similar silhouette and then spray painting it the proper color if you can’t find one. The dress was from Goodwill also. For her hair, we just curled Anj’s long mane, back-combed it, put half up in a scrunchie and called it a day!

Best Group Costume EVER!


Or couple it off!


We could not resist! I sourced ALL of these looks from the thrift store.


I mean?!?! COME. ON!


Couples costume game = STRONG! Zack + Kelly


Besties Costumes BFFs 4-EVER!


Small chance we all had a freaking blast shooting this! Obviously you can make this into a big group thing, or even add Mr. Belding or go with your boo for a great couples costume. There are lots of options to choose from!
