2023 Halloween: How To Dress For A 2000s Party

I hope everyone hasn’t forgotten our special Halloween topic. Due to space limitations, our 2000s Halloween column will be a separate article! I hope you guys can all find your favorite Halloween costume!


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-Willy Wonka

One of my favorite Tim Burton movies – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which was released in 2005, presented the most perfect imaginary world to me as a child at the time.

Who doesn’t want to visit a chocolate factory?

Come and put on your bright purple coat, top hat, and cane, you are now a Willy Wonka!

Uptown Girls- Brittany Murphy

I’m sure everyone is deeply impressed by Brittany Murphy’s denim overall dress. Even though Uptown Girls was a movie in 2003 (it’s been 20 years ago, my God! 20 years!), everyone must remember her in the sun. Shine your smile!

To dress up as Brittany Murphy from Uptown Girls, you only need: a denim overall dress dotted with colorful little butterflies, a vest, and blond hair tied up casually, that’s all!

Legally Blonde

If there is any film and television character that played an unparalleled role in encouraging me as a child, then I would say it was Reese Witherspoon from Legally Blonde!

I admit it was Legally Blonde that broke my stereotype. Before this, I had never realized that beauty and intelligence could be so perfectly combined. No need to hide how smart you are or feel insecure about your beauty, just show it off with confidence, girls!

I have to say that I really like every outfit in Legally Blonde. Each one is so delicate, elegant, and beautiful, showing off their beauty in an almost flamboyant way. The whole pink suit is exquisite and elegant, and every accessory seems to say: I am a famous brand and I am super expensive!

The Princess Diaries-Mia Thermopolis

It seems that there are often scenes in film and television dramas where the heroine’s appearance changes drastically. When it comes to this kind of plot, the first thing that comes to my mind is The Princess Diaries! Almost everyone (who has watched the movie or not) will remember Anne Hathaway smiling with a crown on her head in the poster, confident, generous, elegant and dignified.

Well, you’ll need a nice crown, that’s for sure. Next is an elegant dress.

Mean Girls

Coincidentally, Lindsay Lohan’s role in Mean Girls, like The Princess Diaries, also falls into the category of “ugly girl transformed”.

But I think we all agree that the classic characters of Mean Girls should be the four beautiful girls who shine and walk confidently in the campus corridor. Because of this impressive feature, this set of images is particularly suitable for team cosplay.

Full body pink was a good choice, and in fact the four Christmas outfits performed at the party were also good. Don’t forget to match it with a variety of sparkling jewelry, dazzling makeup, and hand-held bags, coffee, and mobile phones. The details determine the completion of your outfit~

Lady Gaga’s First Red Carpet Appearance

Do you know when Lady Gaga’s First Red Carpet was? Year 2008.

To this day, the superstar’s unique style is so famous around the world that it’s even difficult to replicate. If you want to dress up as Lady Gaga, but are dazzled by her various looks and don’t know how to choose, then choose this set!

Red tights suit, gloves, large black sunglasses, large gold necklace, oh, and long, straight golden hair!

Tomb Raider-Lara Croft

What I’m talking about here is actually the 2001 Angelina Jolie version of Lara Croft, whose archaeologist cool persona really impressed me (and, of course, everyone)!

Tight sports vest, sports shorts, belt, boots… in short, the perfect outfit for an adventurer! Don’t forget her classic hairstyle, with her straight hair neatly tied up without affecting any work. If you pay attention to details, don’t forget toy guns or bows and arrows. The presence of weapons can better highlight the character’s identity.

Pokémon the Movie 2000

Pokémon, of course Pokémon! Pokémon will never go out of style! Whether it’s animation, comics, games, or movies, Pokémon has always been at the forefront of trends! Which Pokémon is your favorite? Is it Bulbasaur with a cute little plant on his back? Is it the chubby and cute little singer Jigglypuff? Or our top star, the 100,000 Volt Pikachu?

Playing as a Pokémon is almost super easy, all you need is a one-piece suit! This is also the most error-free method. If you paint your entire face with color, it may look scarier… After all, we all know the uncanny valley effect.

SpongeBob SquarePants

“Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?”

“SpongeBob SquarePants!”

This is also an idea that is very suitable for group cosplay. There are too many classic images in SpongeBob SquarePants, such as the square SpongeBob SquarePants, pink starfish Patrick, Squidward who hates working, Mr. Krabs who regards wealth as his life…

In short, the first thing I recommend everyone to choose is of course our eponymous protagonist – the most famous yellow sponge in the world, Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants! As the name suggests, you have to firstly prepare a pair of SquarePants! The others are a red tie, a white shirt, and black round-toed leather boots, which is almost a must-have outfit for office workers.

Ah, the iconic couple of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in their denim outfits! Friends who want to dress up as a couple should not miss it.

We also mentioned the wonderful use of denim in the previous article: denim on denim’s unique 2000s fashion! No, it is perfectly presented here! They even have cowboy hats! This is not only a classic presentation of 2000s fashion, but also a reappearance of western cowboy culture!

If you still have extra energy, it would be a good idea to prepare some dance steps~
