Halloween is the one day a year where a girl can dress up like a total sociopathic murderer and no other girls can say anything about it. Break free from the stereotypical cat, police officer, and Wonder Woman costumes, and instead dress up as the best murderous women of our era.
Looking for inspiration? Here are four easy and affordable costumes inspired by our favorite man-killing gals.
Amy Dunne From Gone Girl
Amy Dunne saw that her husband who forced her to move to the Midwest and spent all her money on his bar had started cheating on her with a 20-year-old and decided divorce would be too sweet of a punishment. She decided to be different and frame him for her murder instead. What an innovative queen!
Replicate The Bloody Look She Returns To Nick In
While the movie has a few iconic looks for Mrs. Dunne, the most shocking and memorable is when she comes home to her husband in a blood-soaked white dress rocking a new bob haircut. All you need are a mid-length white dress, some stage blood, and a blonde wig to put the costume together. You can get it all for under $50.
Jennifer From Jennifer’s Body
Jennifer in this movie has everything a girl in high school could want: a hot bod, a spot on the cheer squad, popularity, and a loyal best friend. On top of it all, she consumes boys to keep herself looking top-notch.
The Perfect Look To Eat Men
This costume is fairly simple but very effective. All you need is a cropped red tank top, a black and white plaid mini skirt, a touch of stage blood, and a pair of red heels—the black wig is optional.
Dani From Midsommar
Some would call Midsommar a horror film, but I think it’s just a tale about girls having fun. So what if the main character personally selects her boyfriend to be burned alive? He kind of deserved it.

The Bride From Kill Bill: Vol. 1
When Shakespeare said that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, he was really on to something. After waking up from a coma following her attempted murder four years earlier, she makes it her mission to get even with every person who contributed to the loss of her unborn child, her entire wedding party, and four years of her life, which is pretty metal.
For This One, You’re Better Off Just Getting The Costume
You’re never going to find a tracksuit with black stripes, so you’re better off just getting the costume for a price of around $45–$70 (depending on whether you get the wig). This Halloween, let men know that, should they cause you pain in life, you will come back at them with rage and revenge more intense than he has ever seen before.
