11 Easy and Hilarious Halloween Costumes Based on Selena Gomez Lyrics
Anyone can dress up as Selena Gomez for Halloween, but how many people would be able to pull off dressing up like one of her lyrics? While this may seem like too big of an ask, we think you're up to the challenge. We pulled together some of Selena's most iconic songs and brainstormed costumes based off those key lyrics. Have fun embracing punny this Halloween!

The Heart Wants What It Wants
What you need: This is the perfect excuse for a non-costume. Carry around the indulgence you very rarely give into because this Selena song gives you permission for that and more.
What to say when someone asks what you are: Just reference this lyric: "There are a million reasons why I should give you up, but the heart wants what it wants."
Song: "The Heart Wants What It Wants"
Me & My Girls
What you need: You and your chicas, duh. That's all that embodying this lyric would take. Choose twinning outfits and head out to enjoy all Halloween has to offer.
What to say when someone asks what you are: You have two options here: either go with, "I got my chicas by my side," or "You can look, but don't touch . . . tonight it's just us, me and my girls."
Song: "Me & My Girls"
Can’t Keep My Hands To Myself
What you need: Draw some hand emojis onto your best one-piece, all-black bodysuit.
What to say when someone asks what you are: The costume will speak for itself, but just in case someone asks, you'll say, "Can't keep my hands to myself, but then again, why would I want to?"
Song: "Hands to Myself"
Kill Em With Kindness
What you need: DIY your own t-shirt with an angel motif and staple a few Kind bar wrappers onto them. It's the costume that keeps on giving.
What to say when someone asks what you are: Kindness is sometimes a foreign concept, but not today thanks to Selena Gomez.
Song: "Kill Em With Kindness"
Gin and Juice
What you need: We say you take the "metaphorical" out of gin and juice and carry around a cup labeled, well, "gin and juice." Wear a t-shirt that says, "I'm with . . . " with an arrow that points to your cup-holding hand.
What to say when someone asks what you are: Look them dead in the eye and say, "You're metaphorical gin and juice, but what am I?"
Song: "Hands to Myself"
Round and Round
What you need: Borrow someone's Alice in Wonderland costume, or rock a blue jumper with a white collared shirt underneath — all in an effort to channel the Mad Tea Party ride at Disney.
What to say when someone asks what you are: Your Alice in Wonderland costume has double meaning all thanks to this one little Selena lyric: "I'm getting dizzy, going 'round and 'round."
Song: "Round and Round"
What you need: That camouflage outfit that's hidden in the back of your closet is now back in style. Pair it with your combat boots and you're all set.
What to say when someone asks what you are: Just say, "I'm camouflaged, fortress around my heart."
We Don’t Talk Anymore
What you need: A t-shirt that has the no battery Snapchat filter drawn on it.
What to say when someone asks what you are: No battery, no talking, "we don't talk anymore." Get it?
Song: "We Don't Talk Anymore"
I'm a Marquise Diamond
What you need: Put on the LBD that makes you feel sexy just by looking at it. Then embrace the "I'm a marquise diamond" line by bedazzling the entire dress.
What to say when someone asks what you are: "I'm a marquise diamond, could even make that Tiffany jealous."
Song: "Good For You"
"Look in the Mirror"
What you need: Put on a light yellow dress and get small round mirrors to put on the dress. You'll look like a chic disco ball.
What to say when someone asks what you are: "Look in the mirror. When I look in the mirror, baby, I see it clearer."
"Paint My Kiss Across Your Chest"
What you need: Get a plain white t-shirt and black shorts. Put a set of lips on the shirt and, if you are looking to do a couple's costume, have a friend or partner dress up as a brush.
What to say when someone asks what you are: "Paint my kiss across your chest. If you're the art, I'll be the brush."
Song: "Bad Liar"
