Halloween isn't even here yet and we are already sick of some of these costumes.

Getting dressed up in a great costume for Halloween is all part of the fun. However, some people just go for the easy costumes each year. Depending on what is in the news or what is happening in the entertainment world, many times certain costumes will be overplayed by a long shot.

You can pretty much back on the fact the you will see characters from the top three or four movies and TV shows from the year. This year is no different and we can already tell which costumes are going to be overplayed.

Mind you, this is just my opinion, but after doing just a few simple google searches for costume ideas, it is very obvious what we are going to see a lot of. Keep scrolling to see what we think will be the most overplayed costumes for Halloween 2023.

This is in no way bashing these costumes if that is what you decided to be. I'm just simply stating that you will not be alone. Also, this isn't really directed at young kids (hell, I dressed up as a ninja three years in a row as young kid.) If you are in your late teens (and adults for that matter,) get more creative with it! I did not include the obvious go-to costumes like witches, ghosts, etc...

Don't get me wrong, I had a huge crush on Christina Ricci playing Wednesday when I was a kid. However, with the new Netflix series starring Jenna Ortega, this costume will be everywhere.

Easy to replicate and super creepy. Self-aware A.I. is something we should all fear, but not dress up as. M3GAN reminds me of a terrifying scorned ex-girlfriend.

Carmy from The Bear

I don't even know what this show is, but the costume idea pops up in almost every Google search. It is pretty easy to get the pieces for the costume, but I wouldn't recognize it.
