I always think about movie costumes first since there are always numerous movies that inspire costumes. Some of the popular movies this year that have great costume ideas for Halloween are Thor costumes, Harry Potter costumes, and Pirates of the Carribean costumes. Who wouldn’t want a Jack Sparrow costume. Women may want to be a superhero in a Wonder Woman adult costume or Watchmen Silk Specture that is both inspiring and sexy. And what man doesnt want to be a superhero himself in a Captain America costume. Many costumes can be put together in a trip to the thrift store or if you are really handy at sewing, then you can use your machine for sewing that awe inspiring costume. One of the best ways is to assemble your costume from clothes that you already have and then supplement it with halloween costume accessories that are purchased through your local costume store or are easily ordered online. Either way you can put together a costume quickly although it is best to plan ahead for items that you will need to purchase.
What Halloween costumes are popular with the kids? Well, many boys will want a Captain America boys costume like their dads or step for trick or treating in a cool Green Lantern boys costume that looks like Hal Jordan. It even lights up! Very cool. And what about the girls costumes? Fairy princess and mermaid costumes are always popular, but this year they may want to be a little different in a Monster High girls costume as Frankie High or Clawdeen Wolf. On the fun side, there is always the Lalaoopsy or Strawberry Shortcake girls costumes that that will be fun.
This year, Angry Birds costumes will also be very fun. Who is your favorite angry birds character? You can look sharp in a King Pig mask or a Yellow Angry bird mask or for the kids a Red Birds child costume. So many choices this year that you may have trouble deciding which costume is best.
If you are one of those couples that like to dress as a pair, Mr and Mrs Potato Head costumes may be what you are destined to be! You can also look great in Alice in Wonderland costumes. The Mad Hatter costume will go wonderful with Alice or even more fun in the Dark Heart queen costume. Gangster costumes for men and women are still very popular. Bonnie and Clyde costumes will always be in fashion. A few funny couples costumes are fork and spoon costume, Adam and Eve costume and Plug and socket costume.
Animal costumes are another creative costume idea. You can quickly make a cat costume using a a black outfit for the body and then painting on the whiskers with stage makeup. Add a tail made with some cloth and you are ready to go. There are plenty of pre-made costumes that are perfect for infants and toddlers.
