The 2000s are back, so why not celebrate Halloween with a costume that IS the moment but ISN’T cliche? Take it from this millennial who lived through most of these things not being a costume, but instead being life. These 2000s Halloween costumes are funny, clever, and dare I say easy. Here are the Y2K inspired costume ideas we love:

1. Not A Regular Mom, But A Cool Mom

2. The Girl in the Juicy Sweatsuit

Get your Juicy tracksuit, your Tiffany’s necklace and bracelet, and your D&B bag from your parent’s basement… It’s time to relive 2004.

3. Paris Hilton & Her Assistant (Kim Kardashian)

If you’re going to be anyone in the mid-2000s, let it be Kim K and Paris.

6. Marissa Cooper in Tijuana

Then you can use the excuse that you were passed out in an alleyway if you feel like skipping the party and staying home to sleep. YOU WERE IN FULL CHARACTER MODE.
