Wade Watts is the main character from the 2018 film Ready Player One. In the movie, Wade is on a hunt to find the “Easter Egg” in the virtual reality game OASIS. Samantha Cook is also a massive fan of the game and is known for her skills in egg hunting. The two embark on the journey of finding the Easter Egg hidden in the game, and Wade makes it very clear that he has feelings for Samantha. But she has her eye on the prize and won’t admit her same feelings until the hunt is over.
Dress as the two gamers as they face off in the hunt of their lives.

Throughout Disney’s TV show Recess, Spinelli seemed to be more than just friends with T.J. Detweiler, and it looked as though T.J. had similar feelings. T.J. is the ringleader of his group of friends and is mostly responsible for all the schemes and tricks they get themselves in to. Even though he’s a prankster, T.J. is also very kind-hearted and genuinely cares about the other kids in school. While T.J.’s academic achievements are subpar, he’s a genius when it comes to inventing a new prank or scheme.
Dress up as the perfect playground pair this Halloween. Get T.J.’s look with a green MA-1 flight jacket, a red baseball hat, a men’s short sleeve tee, straight-leg rugged jeans, and Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star red shoes. Spinelli keeps her look super laid back but girly with a seamed stretch sheath dress, military Anorak jacket, stripe tights, harness boots, orange hair ties, and a cable knit slouchy beanie.
Raven and Beast Boy are two of the team members of DC Comics Teen Titans. Raven has the ability to levitate, teleport, and perform astral projection among many other powers.

Dress as the dynamic duo from the world of Marvel with their superhero suits.

Accessories are a girl’s best friend, so be sure to add a pearl necklace, gold bracelet, and a classy satchel handbag because Veronica wouldn’t be seen without them!

Princess Bean isn’t about the princess life, and Elfo is ready to explore the world to find out what it’s like to experience other feelings than positivity and complete happiness. Princess Bean can usually be found drinking to escape her life, and Elfo has already beaten her to the punch and abandons the life laid out for him because he is tired of making elven candy every single day. The two embark on adventures together that go against their families and how they are “supposed” to live their lives.
