From flashy, disco-inspired get-ups to far-out, flowery hippie costumes, we've got the skinny on where to buy (and how to DIY!) a '70s Halloween costume for women, men, and kids. And they're groovy, man. The crafters and DIY-ers among you will dig our easy homemade costume ideas, featuring Ziggy Stardust face paint, Rubik's Cubes, and Laverne and Shirley outfits for best friends to rock together. But even if you're not into weekend projects, don't worry—there's likely an outfit or two on our list you'll like. Our shoppable finds include a Saturday Night Fever look that your friends will get a kick out of, a sparkly, reflective disco dress that you can dance the night away in, and even a Godfather suit that'll have you in stitches.

Or honor one of the many movies that came out that decade (hello, Star Wars and Grease!) with a tongue-in-cheek costume dedicated to one of your favorite characters.
