Halloween comes only once a year, but it can be stressful if you have difficulty thinking of a costume to wear. If you like movies and want to dress as a movie character, you're in luck: most movie characters have looks that are easily replicated. You can dress like your favourite movie character or experiment with something different.

Daphne from "Scooby-Doo"

Dressing up as the character Daphne from the "Scooby-Doo" movies is a simple solution to creating a Halloween costume. You can buy a prepackaged Daphne costume or assemble your own with a long-sleeved orange sweater, a red or orange skirt, glasses, a short brown wig and brown shoes.

Cher from "Clueless"

Dressing up as Cher -- or Dionne -- from "Clueless" will set you apart from other people at a Halloween party. The most recognisable outfit from the movie is the yellow plaid outfit that Cher wears to school. To replicate this look, search for yellow and black plaid separates at thrift stores, and complete it with a yellow vest, a white T-shirt, knee-high white socks, a fluffy purse or backpack and a (large) cell phone. If you are going to dress as Dionne, consider making a hat similar to the ones she wears in the movie.

Robin Hood from "Robin Hood"

Robin Hood, tights and all, makes a great Halloween costume because it's unique and instantly recognisable. A traditional Robin Hood costume consists of knee-high brown riding boots, green tights, a dark green frock or top, a brown shawl or other covering and a green hat with a red feather. You can accessorise this costume by adding a bow and arrow, a sword or leather pouches of coins dangling from your belt.

Alex from "A Clockwork Orange"

If you're a fan of cult movie classics, you can dress as the character Alex from "A Clockwork Orange," the Stanley Kubrick flick. The costume is simple: a white jumpsuit, a black bowler hat, a cane and black boots. You can get a wig to replicate the hairstyle and use a lot of eye make-up on your right eye. This costume might not be recognised by everyone, but it will certainly be unique.
