Between the fun of dressing up, the plethora of free candy, and the spooky feel of the occasion — Halloween one of the best holidays of the year!

Whether you're going to a fun Halloween party, staying in for a scary movie marathon, heading to a creepily decorated haunted house, or simply taking the kids trick or treating (or staying home to hand out candy) — you should always get in the spirit of things and dress up for Halloween with your friends!

Planning the perfect matching costume with your friends takes time. Especially if you and your bestie have decided to turn it into a fun DIY project that you’ll do together.

But they don’t HAVE to. Sometimes only a little effort makes the best (and cutest) costumes. A lot of the costumes that made our list are quite easy to just throw together real quick (you may even have everything you need in the house) if you don't want to buy it online and wait for it to ship.

8. The Two Broke Girls Halloween Costumes

A perfect one for the classic blonde and brunette duo. Dress up like Max and Caroline from Two Broke Girls!

Personally, I’d make sure to get name tags and their signature jewelry (especially Caroline’s pearls and Max’s giant safety pins and cheap a-- earrings).

9. The Princess Diaries Mia Thermopolis Halloween Costume

Instead of going classic "sexy schoolgirl", why not try going out as Princess Mia from The Princess Diaries? This could be especially effective for a straight-haired and a curly-haired best friend duo if you wanted to do a "before and after" type matching outfit combo.

Curly hair frizzes amazingly well to be the “before” Mia. Personally, I think the after Mia needs to take off the glasses (she gets contacts in the movie - duh!).

A staple for any two people going out on Hallows eve — Mario and Luigi! Personally, I’m a fan of also including fake mustaches, but that’s me.

Mario And Luigi Costumes:

15. Lumiere, Cogsworth And Plumette Halloween Costumes From Beauty And The Beast

This one’s a bit more elaborate, but amazing so it seems worth it. Lumiere and Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast are just the bickering pair to make this Halloween fun.

Where are my fellow horror movie buffs?! You have to love this feminine spin on the movie Freddy Vs. Jason! Personally, I think “Freddy Krueger” should mess up her face a little though.

Personally, I’m always Daisy when I play Mario Party, probably because I’m the brunette friend.

Princess Peach And Princess Daisy Best Friend Halloween Costumes:

23. Buzz Lightyear And Woody Women's Halloween Costumes

Another fun (and pretty easy) one to DIY, be girly Buzz and Woody from Toy Story! If you don’t put “Andy” on the bottom of your shoes, it totally doesn’t count though.

24. Thing 1 and Thing 2 Best Friend Halloween Costumes

Perfect for Halloween parties! Take a spin on Dr. Seuss’s “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” by DIYing them to say "Drunk 1" and "Drunk 2". All you need is a little paint.
