It's hard to believe, but Halloween is just around the corner!

For many, Halloween is the most fun time of the year. There are parties, haunted houses, hayrides, and, of course, Halloween costumes.

Even if you come up with the best Halloween costume ideas, for the introvert personality type, the holiday can get a little overwhelming.

Introverts don't typically enjoy the small talk and raucous atmosphere that comes along with most Halloween activities. You really want to join in on the fun with your friends and everyone else, but putting on a flashy costume for the world to see doesn't exactly get you in the Halloween spirit.

I mean, you're not one who's fond of people staring at you, right?

Don't let all these things stop you from celebrating October 31st. If you want to go out and hit the town, you should!

But, let's get serious for a minute — if you think about it, Halloween is the perfect holiday for introverts! Seriously, it's like this holiday was made for you.

Halloween is the one time of year where you can be anyone or anything you want to be. And, introverts, this is the most important thing to remember — you're being someone else, so just let yourself go and enjoy the night!

Also, it's the one day of the year where it's not weird at all to hide your face. That's really what Halloween costumes were always meant for anyway — to wear a mask or paint your face in some way so that you can become whatever character you choose.

In case you're still wondering what might work best for you, here are some Halloween costume ideas that would be excellent for introverts.

5. MTV's Daria costume

Amazon

This is another great character for introverts. Daria Morgendorffer was more of an observer than a talker — she was known for being bored and un-amused by people and their social interactions. She was also the queen of sarcastic one-liners, so don't hold back on cranking out a few — it's all part of the look.

And this costume scores extra points for getting to hide behind those big specs.
