Halloween is today, and while some of us have had our costumes planned for weeks, others might not have been so ready. If you fall into the latter group, no worries. 

An all-black outfit is something everyone already has in their closet, and with a little creativity, your costume is ready. Here are 7 all black outfit Halloween costume ideas:

Wednesday Addams

Part your hair in the middle and braid each side. Put on some dark eye shadow, and you have a Wednesday Addams costume. You can wear a black dress like she usually does, but you're feeling black jeans and a shirt, just tell everyone you're a modern day Wednesday.

Audrey Hepburn

Channel Holly Golightly and bring out your biggest sunglasses and best pearls. If you don't have any, borrow some from a friend. Put your hair in a bun, and make sure your liner and brows are flawless.


All you need for a black cat costume is cat ears. If you don't own a pair, DIY and make some with a headband and some black paper or poster board. Cat eyeliner is a must.

Cat Woman

Catwoman is exactly like the last costume, but with a mask added. Top it off with a sultry red lip.


If you're going be hanging out with a friend all night, just tell everyone you're their "shadow." No extra props needed!


Take an old black shirt, and cut a strip a little longer than the diameter of your head. Tie it around your crown and you're a ninja. If you really want to go all out with the full face mask, check out this video.

Yourself, circa 2009

If you ever had an "emo" or "scene" phase, this can be a fun and interesting costume to explain to people. Break out your old pair of Converse, and don't go easy on the eye shadow. Black nails are a major plus.
