Best Halloween Captions Idea For Every — and any — Situation

You’ve put up your Halloween decorations, crafted a clever costume and planned an epic party that everyone will be talking about until next year.

But if you didn’t snap and share a few pictures, did it even happen? You know the answer to that question.

That said, you need to have a few Halloween Instagram captions handy to really take your posts to the next level. We’ve got tons of scary-good options below for all of your solo shots and photo dumps, no matter if you’d rather go with something cute, funny or straight-up creepy.

There’s a caption idea for every — and any — situation. Pair a punny phrase with your best friend costume (“Just me and my boo crew”), let your dog share a message with your followers (“Have a Scary Halloween and Happy Boo Year!”), hard-launch your relationship with something couple-y (“Love at first bite”), or borrow iconic lines from your classic Halloween movies and TV shows.
