Halloween Costumes: Classic Characters

We have a feeling there’ll be a lot of characters from Suicide Squad roaming the streets this Halloween. Certainly, the Joker is a classic go to. Additionally, Harley Quinn is a great option as well; her look is fun, flirty and easily achieved.

Or perhaps your love of Game of Thrones can inspire your costume. For example, you could dress up as Melisandre (a.k.a. The Red Woman). Her long, wavy red locks and pale complexion are the perfect façade for her true evil nature (and her true age).

Halloween Costumes: 80’s Throwbacks

Netflix’s Stranger Things has been dominating the cultural zeitgeist since its release this summer. And while we’re sure to see a lot of Barbs, Elevens and Dustins, the show is likely to inspire a number of 80’s themed costumes as well.

Another fabulous 80’s Ryder flick is the beloved Beetlejuice. And no matter whether you go for Beetlejuice himself, Lydia Deetz or another character, you can rest assured people will be excited by your costume.

Lastly, no list of 80’s costumes would be complete without Jareth, the Goblin King from Labyrinth. A genius creation from the late, great David Bowie, the character and costume are sure to put you in the Halloween spirit.

Certainly, no matter which costume you end up selecting, it can take a few attempts before you master your chosen look. Therefore, we recommend doing a couple of test runs prior to the 31st.

Not sure you want to commit to any of the costumes we just suggested? Don’t worry! We’re full of Halloween ideas. In fact, we have so many we decided it was necessary to draft a second post. Part Two will be published the week of October 17th, so be sure to check back!
