This Halloween, don’t hold back. Be proud and wave that geek girl flag like never before.
This list includes buying links, price information and recommended accessories. The best part is that these geek costume ideas are all from the biggest, coolest and most popular fandoms.
Are you ready to nerd out? Here are the top 10 geek costume ideas for girls for Halloween:
10.) Doctor Who: TARDIS Dress
What you need: Doctor Who TARDIS Dress
Whovians, this one is for you. Here is your chance at looking both adorable and extraterrestrial in a TARDIS-inspired dress.
This Halloween costume is perfect for the gal who loves Doctor Who but doesn’t want to wear a full-on costume. Luckily for her, this dress makes a perfect outfit for any other geeky event (like Comic-Con!).
9.) Adventure Time: Princess Bubblegum
What you need: Rubie’s Costume Co. Women’s Adventure Time Princess Bubblegum Costume; hot pink wig
Price: $35-$68 (dress); $23 (wig)
This costume is for the girl who loves being a princess, magenta and about the best cartoon in existence! I present to you, Princess Bubblegum.
It has high ratings on Amazon and can be your Halloween look for a decent cost. The dress comes with a royal crown, but the wig must be bought separately. However, we think your pup dressed as Finn would be the cutest accessory. You can purchase that costume here.
8.) Game of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen
What you need: Angelaicos Womens Top Design Cosplay Show Costume Dress Cloak; Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen Wig
Price: $65-$89 (dress); $20 (wig)
We know her as “Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea…” and the list goes on. If you’re a girl boss with more than one title at work, or simply a queen who knows her worth, this is one of the best geek costume ideas for you.
It’s time everyone bends their knee for you. To get this look, you’ll need the dress and Targaryen wig. I think it’s worth it for that kind of power…

Wonder Woman’s costume is a steal at under $40. It comes with the dress, armband, boot covers and belt. You know, everything you need to personify the goddess.
5.) Walking Dead: Negan
What you need: Tanming Women’s Faux Leather Moto Biker Short Coat Jacket; Negan’s Bat, Lucille
Price: $40 (jacket); $25 (bat)
Here is one of the simplest geek costume ideas for women. Negan is all things charming, manipulative and alluring—but who says guys get to have all the fun this Halloween? It’s 2018. Gender-bender cosplays are all the rage.
To pull off this look, you’ll only need three things: one badass jacket; Negan’s most prized possession, Lucille; and a hell of a lot of charisma. Do you have it in you?
4.) Guardians of the Galaxy: Gamora
What you need: Rubies Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora Costume
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of Marvel’s biggest box office hits. It’s not hard to see why. It’s composed of big-hearted and fun-loving characters. But sometimes this intergalactic posse needs help reigning back in to get work done. Enter Gamora: the glue and reason of the group.
If you know how to have a good time and get work done, this isn’t one of the best geek costume ideas for you. It’s the one for you.
3.) Harry Potter: Luna Lovegood
What you need: BW Harry Potter Ravenclaw Girls Cardigan; Luna Lovegood Glasses; pleated skirt
Price: $40 (cardigan); $13 (glasses); $25 (skirt)
Looney Lovegood… I mean, Luna, kindred spirit to all people; a little strange and unusual. And because Luna is anything but typical, why not jazz up her usual attire?
To be a casual—but just as effectively odd—Luna, pair up a typical Ravenclaw cardigan and pleated skirt with the character’s famous Spectrespecs.
2.) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Queenie
What you need: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Pink Queenie Dress; Queenie Goldstein Wand; wig
Price: $89 (dress); $20 (wand); $20 (wig)
If there were ever two friends to be made in the original Harry Potter films and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it’s Queenie Goldstein and Luna Lovegood. They both march to their own drum, but the biggest difference is Queenie’s ability to extract emotions and memories from people.
Have you always thought of yourself as a little psychic? A little too in-tune with those around you? Here’s a costume for the sensitive ones.
1.) Captain Marvel
What you need: Captain Marvel Bodysuit
Last but not least, the number one choice of our geek costume ideas is Carol Danvers, better known as Captain Marvel. Carol is one strong lady. She’s been through every worst-case scenario and still manages to pull herself out of every dark moment.
Captain Marvel is the best Halloween costume choice for any woman who’s had to fight hard for what she’s got. Wear her suit if you believe tough situations will only make you stronger.
