It’s September, which means only one thing: It’s time to figure out your Halloween costume! Of course, you should also take some time to enjoy autumn walks, pumpkin spice lattes and the falling of leaves—as long as you’ve already got a killer costume in the works.

If you’re still not sure what you’d like to masquerade as this year, never fear: We’ve rounded up some of the best celebrity costumes we’ve seen in recent years to help inspire you. From “Game of Thrones”-themed outfits to “Star Wars” characters to scary monsters, these Hollywood-approved Halloween costumes are on point.

1. Neil Patrick Harris’ Family’s “Star Wars” Costumes

How cute is this? Neil Patrick Harris, his husband, David Burtka, and their two kids donned costumes that turned them into characters Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. Take a peek Harris’ costume-filled Halloween Instagram shot from 2015:
