31 TV Halloween Costumes to Channel Your Favorite Show

Everyone is a little guilty of celebrating cancelled plans and spending some QT with Netflix. But when Halloween rolls around, it’s time to get those creative juices flowing to make sure the costumes (and everything else) are ready for the party. It turns out that all of that time spent with Netflix paid off — combining your love for your shows with the best holiday around can make for some seriously spot-on costumes.
