14 Halloween Costumes Every Tomboy Will Love

If you consider yourself to be the antithesis of a “girly girl,” Halloween can be a confusing time. With the pervasiveness of “sexy professional” costumes, it’s often difficult for a more low-key lady to find a Halloween look that fits her tastes.

Thankfully, there are actually some great costumes to choose from for any self-professed tomboys out there. Here are just a few ideas to get you started — because looking good on Halloween shouldn’t mean feeling drafty or wildly uncomfortable.

1. Spinelli from Recess

The best part of this Waldo ensemble is that it works as an outfit all year round (minus the stocking cap, of course).

5. Juno MacGuff

Jeans + skirt = low-key Halloween comfort that is totally worth it. Although, fair warning: the fake pregnant tummy may be slightly annoying.

6. Steve Zissou

Wearing faux armor might be a pain in the butt, but that’s a small price to pay for looking as badass as Brienne.

8. Jillian Holtzmann from Ghostbusters
