It’s never too early to start dreaming about fall. Personally, I think that the pumpkin-spice season and the changing of the leaves is the best time of year.

And, of course, that includes Halloween! My best friends and I have been looking forward to Halloween for months.

We have compiled a list of 60 best friend Halloween costumes for you and your bestie to wear this year.

I’ll have to warn you, there are so many cute ones, it’ll be hard to choose.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 is an iconic and easy best friend Halloween costume. My best friend and I wore this Halloween costume last year.

We found Thing 1 and Thing 2 Stickers at our local Halloween shop and dug into our closets to find red shirts and the most obnoxious blue accessories that we could get our hands on.

If you have a little more time to plan, here are some fun pieces from Amazon so you can easily recreate the look.

2. Peanut butter and jelly

Dressing as this salty-sweet combo is a fun way to celebrate Halloween with your best friend.

It’s the perfect, yet silly way to show how your best friend will always be by your side. Get these costumes from Amazon to recreate the look with minimal effort.

You’ll just need something neutral to wear underneath.

These costumes are perfect for a friend group of four or five. Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne are easily recognizable characters, so your group will be sure to draw attention this Halloween.

Or, if it’s just you and your bestie, Daphne and Velma or Scooby and Shaggy make indivisible duos.

See if you can create the look with pieces around your house, or buy these costumes on amazon.

This best friend Halloween costume is cute, simple and comfortable. All you need is a colored t-shirt with M&M’s logo on it and you’re good to go!
