How to Dress Like Queer Eye's Fab 5 For Halloween — Fierceness Not Included
The next best thing to being real-life friends with the Fab Five from Queer Eye is pretending to be them for a night. There's no better time than Halloween to channel one of the year's most-loved groups of friends and to put forth your best compliment-giving self — is there actually a more uplifting group costume? Whether you're more of a fashionable Tan or a beauty-guru Jonathan, surely you relate to at least one member of the iconic crew, which rapidly gained popularity after the show's reboot premiered on Netflix in February. Ahead, see everything you need to channel Jonathan, Tan, Antoni, Karamo, and Bobby this Halloween — fierceness and hilarity not included, honey.
Jonathan knows there are few things that a great moisturizer and high-quality conditioner can't fix. To be him for a night, wear your freshly straightened, sleek hair in a half-up bun, and carry a green color-correcting primer with you all night. You can teach people the wonders of reducing redness by offering to dab a little on their faces and saying, "Yas, honey! A moisturized moment! She's fierce!"
Karamo wears a lot of hats (both literally and figuratively) and a lot of camo, so channel his laid-back yet chic style by wearing a camo bomber jacket and an LA Dodgers hat. Don't be afraid to spark thought-provoking conversations and lend a helping hand to your friends throughout the night — Karamo's specialty.

Oh, sweet baby Antoni, master of the kitchen and of our hearts. If you're the savviest foodie of the group, Antonti is your obvious costume choice. Wear a t-shirt with a loosely tied bandana around your neck, and carry a pair of tongs.
If you're hosting or attending a Halloween party, go the extra mile and make guacamole the Antoni way from season one, episode one — with Greek yogurt. Offer simple cooking tips throughout the night, and don't let the haters tell you Antoni can't cook (he's opening a fast-casual restaurant and writing a cookbook, after all).
Bobby is the sleeper hero of the Fab Five. While the other guys are working their magic, he's hard at work painting, sawing, and feng shui-ing the sh*t out of these people's homes, but the camera doesn't show most of his work.
Obsessed with Bobby? Dress like him in a pair of fitted shorts and a tailored blazer, and walk around with something that indicates you're the home-improvement expert, like a paintbrush or a tool belt.
The One Thing You MUST Have For Each Costume
To truly emulate the Fab Five, you've got to put on your most positive, supportive attitude. Who wouldn't want to run into this crew on Halloween?
