It’s Spooky Szn! Here Are 5 Halloween Costume Ideas to Thrift This Year

Goodwill of OC Is Here to Help You Hone Your 2022 Halloween Look

Ghosts, goblins and ghouls—oh my! Spooky season is here, which means it’s time to start considering your costume choices for Halloween. With parties happening all month long, it can be pretty pricey to dress up for every occasion. Lucky for you, Goodwill of OC has plenty of stylish selections for thrifted halloween costumes that won’t break the bank! 

Whether you’re looking to travel back in time with a Steampunk aesthetic, honor Hispanic heritage by dorning Día de los Muertos attire or honing the traditional witchy wardrobe, we’ve rounded up the best Halloween costumes you can find at Goodwill of OC this year!


Day of the Dead

Black Lace Dress: $7.99

Although this thrifted halloween costume has a sultry and mysterious appeal, Día de los Muertos is a sacred time to celebrate the loved ones who have passed away. Rather than mourn the loss, this timeless tradition is a way to keep their spirit alive. Flip through the racks for the perfect little black dress, and if you are unable to find a sugar skull mask at your local Goodwill of OC store, you can always wow partygoers by doing your own makeup.


Boo Chella

White Lace Dress: $14.99
Daisy Sunglasses: $5.99

Are you a bohemian babe that loves all things music and dancing? If so, this is the costume for you! From the moment you enter the party, people will be drawn to your good vibes and free spirit. Don’t be surprised if they want to chat with you about their latest Coachella experience or this year’s lineup. All it takes to pull this look together is a lace dress, some funky sunglasses and maybe a flower crown if you’re trying to take it to the next level.


Mystical Vibes

Flower Skirt: $7.99
Shimmer Bodysuit: $6.99

Maybe it’s the set of wings or all the glitter—either way, you have to admit that there is something magical about a mystical fairy roaming through a sea of people. This thrifted halloween costume is easy to put together in a pinch thanks to the one-of-a-kind fairy fashion at Goodwill of OC, where even Tinkerbell will be jealous of your style. Be on the lookout for a tulle skirt, shimmery top and of course, a pair of enchanting wings. Pixie dust is optional (but definitely recommended). 



Hat: $10.99
Purple Velvet Dress: $14.99
Cloak: $9.99

This classic costume never gets old, and there’s a reason why dressing up as a witch has appealed to generations. The witch is scary because she possesses a power unlike any other. Whether she is stirring up potions in her cauldron or casting spells on others, witches can be charming, mysterious and eerie all wrapped into one. Embody this feminine allure by slipping into a spellbinding dress, covering up with a cloak and completing the look with a pointed hat.



Hat: $14.99
Corset: $ 10.99
Black Blouse: $11.99

History and fantasy collide with this eccentric costume style. Steampunk is a tribute to vintage fashion and science fiction with a modern and sassy twist. Think post-apocalyptic attire with a contemporary flare. Because of its cinched corsets, timeless tophats and metal goggles, steampunk is anything but minimalist. The best part about this funky fashion trend? There’s no wrong way to do it! (Actually, the best part of this trend is you can reuse your costume pieces for Burning Man next year.)
