No matter your age or physique, there is a Halloween costume that is made for you and your interests. You can dress for classically for the holiday, you can choose a sexier option or you can imitate your favorite character or celebrity. No matter your preferences, Halloween is the time to try a completely new persona on for size.
All you need to do is find your perfect look, and these are some of the best Halloween costume ideas:
There is no rule that says that you have to dress up alone for Halloween. In fact, some of the best costume ideas are those that come in pairs. Try on any of the Disney prince and princess combinations, from Ariel and Eric to Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. Go less romantic and try on Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia or even Maverick and Goose from Top Gun.
Whether solo, in a pair or even in a group, there are some great and recognizable television characters that would make fun and recognizable Halloween costumes. Consider a Peanuts- or Scooby Doo-themed group, the Duck Dynasty crew or even your favorite classic character, such as Lucy Ricardo or Daisy Duke.
While Halloween can be fun for all ages, nothing screams Halloween like dressing up kids and babies in fun costumes. Make your baby a wolf and your toddler Little Red Riding Hood, dress your twins as Mickey and Minnie or turn your brood into the cowardly lion, scarecrow, tin man and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Bonus points for utilizing your group of small humans to create a single scene.
Another fun option for the whole family is to coordinate everyone’s costumes into a movie theme. Dad can be Gru, while the kids dress as minions, or the entire group can re-enact the cast of Grease, complete with Sandy, Danny and Rizzo. Another familiar option for singles and families alike are the many different superheroes currently popular at the theater, such as Spiderman, Batman and even the villains.
Do not forget to let pets get in on the action. There is little more adorable than a dog dressed as a pumpkin or a cat all dolled up as a snowman. Be creative! Your pet will eventually forgive you for that pirate hat that you forced him to wear for the evening.
