Angelina Jolie Characters Make Perfect Halloween Costumes

Angelina Jolie as Thena
Marvel

Marvel’s Eternals will hit theaters on November 5, but before then, you can find some Halloween costume inspiration in the days leading up to the premiere. If you don’t feel like saddling yourself with pairs of both horns and wings, though, there are plenty other ways to channel Angelina Jolie on October 31. Of course, there’s the obvious: Lara Croft. But Jolie’s cinematic deep cuts will likely get you the most inspired. That’s especially true, in fact, if you don’t have Jolie’s long brown locks. For blondes, there’s Jolie in Girl, Interrupted and Life or Something Like It; for those with bangs or pixie cuts, there’s Jolie in Hackers and Salt, respectively. As for the clothes, the options range from risqué—fishnets and a latex minidress, à la Mr. and Mrs. Smith—to modest chic, with brown furs and a cloche hat, à la Changeling. Find all the inspiration you need, here.
