The Batman botanist was powerful, smart, and sexy. This look is more comic book than movie version, so if you want to look like Uma Thurman in Batman Forever, tie some of your hair into two buns atop your head to emulate her distinctive style.

This is a fun one if you feel like getting OTT with the green eyeliner and doing makeup that goes beyond the usual eyes and lips. It's also a great idea for those of you with bright red hair!

When you think of The Craft, you immediately think of Nancy. She was the super impressive witch that got a little too power hungry in the spooky 1996 film.

Nancy was all dark lips, dark eyes, and dangling crosses.

Nancy was a very '90s witch — she had a very particular grunge style that probably wouldn't have found its way into the 21st century. YouTuber SmashinBeauty even talks us through her wardrobe — but to really nail the look, don't forget her wild hair.

She was the sexy, sultry school girl in the uber-creepy '90s series Twin Peaks. And if that's not a combination ripe for a Halloween costume, then we don't know what is.

She'd ditched her '80s feathered hair for a high pony — plus look at all that brown eyeshadow. If you do a '90s look and there's no brown eyeshadow involved, is it even a '90s look?
