That time of the year when everyone’s dressed in their spookiest costumes is once again fast approaching. It will be Halloween again soon, dear readers, and if you haven’t thought about who (or what) you are going to be on that exciting day, now is the best time to do so.

We know how hard it is to decide which spooky character you’d be for a day, but we’ll try our best to nudge you in the right direction. Not only are the following dresses gorgeous when worn the normal way, but they are also good as Halloween costumes:

1. BCBGMAXAZRIA Riley Dress, $448


Bloody Mary? Jilted bride? White lady? You can try this dress if you are going for those characters. I would be hesitant to splash fake blood on this $400 dress, though, but for the love of a good costume, some will probably make an exception.

2. Paul & Joe Sister Santa Fe Dress, $175

Suzy Bishop, that girl from ‘Moonrise Kingdom’, has been a favorite character of many vintage-loving gals. This year, you can go as Suzy Bishop in this ’60s-inspired dress. Wear a beret with it, grab a pair of binoculars, and tote a square bag.

3. ONE by Femme D’armes Bailey Lace Gown, $828

ONE by Femme Darmes Bailey Lace Gown

A black dress can transform you into many different characters. You can be the Wicked Witch from the West, Snow White’s evil stepmom, or just the lady in black haunting streets.

4. Alice + Olivia Courtnee Combo Cuff Dress, $297

Alice + Olivia Courtnee Combo Cuff Dress

Doesn’t this dress remind you of a nun’s habit? It’s definitely too short, not to mention too fitted, to be a nun’s habit, but if you style it with a bloody neck, a rosary on your hands and creepy contact lenses, you’ll definitely create a terrifying Halloween costume!

5. Cynthia Rowley Iridescent Scuba Dress, $410

The dress itself is otherworldly! The holographic material reminds us of space age, time-bending movies. You can go that route — a chic alien with some serious fashion skills. A futuristic and architectural pair of shoes will go well with this. You can also become a fairy with colorful wings if you like cutesy costumes.

6. Young Fabulous & Broke Livinia Maxi Dress, $216

It’s pretty obvious what you could be with this dress — a skeleton! The rib-like print is so apt for the occasion. Now, all you need to do is paint your face the details of a skull.

7. Preen Jamie Dress, $3,270

Here’s another costume with a religious flair. You can dress yourself as a priestess. Carry a large cross staff, and put a bishop’s hat on your head.

8. Parker Mariah Dress, $374
