Nina Dobrev is used to playing many different characters — on The Vampire Diaries, she plays three — so it’s no surprise she loves Halloween. This year, she went as a house of cards (a play on the Netflix show House of Cards), but in a throwback photo posted on the haunting holiday, she was something a little more straightforward.

In the adorable pic her friend Instagrammed on October 31, Nina is a full-fledged gypsy, wearing a headscarf, wide belt, and a flowy peasant dress. It is purple, white, and blue, and she makes it look incredible.

No idea when this photo was taken, but she looks in her late teens. Then again, Nina basically never ages (and is only 24 now), so it could have been last year.

Granted, she does appear to be in a classroom, so we’re guessing high school. Either way, she’s so cute and we’re obsessed. Maybe we’ll try to bring back this look next year for Halloween!

This is her second costume so far. Last week, she shared what looked to be a Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber costume with co-star Paul Wesley, but since she’s friends with Sel, they may have just been going as their TVD characters!

Nina has been in a throwback mood for weeks now. Recently, she posted a picture of her wiping out on vacation with bestie Julianne Hough, fun middle school time with Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, on-set photos from TVD with co-star Steve McQueen, and some sexy bathtime pics as Katherine on the show, too. Hey, we’re not complaining!

What do you think of Nina’s throwback photo obsession: too cute or too much? Sound off below!
