If you’re looking for inspiration for your #Halloween2019 look, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of the most sought-after Halloween looks for year, so take your pick and take the Best Costume Of The Night award home!
So, what should you be for Halloween this year?
Pennywise from IT
Starting dark and strong, the top pick of the year has to be the resident red-haired clown Pennywise. The movie IT Chapter Two hit cinemas just last month, so everyone’s still on the evil clown hype train! Who doesn’t love seeing a deranged, evil ghost town prowling the streets carrying a red balloon? No one, but if you’re keen to scare the buhjeezus out of your friends and family, then this is the Halloween costume for you. Pop on a bright, red wig, slather some white face paint on, draw lines across your face, and viola! Terrifying Halloween costume—check!
Anyone from Stranger Things
Guilty of binge-watching season 3 of Stranger Things on Netflix this year? Well, you’re not alone! Go retro and take your love for the sci-fi horror one step further. There’s plenty of inspiration to be had from the show’s most recent season, from Steve’s beloved stripy ice-cream shop sailor uniform to Eleven’s paint-splattered top and suspenders combo—it’s a costume-fest!
Plus, everything is so cute and colourful and retro that you can move your Stranger Things costume into your permanent wardrobe rotation after the festivities are over! #Zerowaste anyone?
Chucky the Murderous Doll
Surely I can’t be the only one that still has nightmares about a freakish doll in overalls coming to murder me in my bathroom while I brush my teeth… No? Just me?
Well, if you still feel a shiver run down your spine every time someone mentions his household name, this might just be perfect for anyone with masochistic tastes! This charming, classic, hate-spiting doll has been on a killing spree ever since 1988, and he’s been immortalised innumerable times on Halloween. This year, why not go the conventional route and bring this baby back? (Stay very, very far away from me, though.)
Toy Story Characters
We’re dialling it back a notch and switching to the more pleasant spectrum of the Halloween costume realm. Still charmed by Toy Story‘s plastic, googly-eyed Forky? Did Woody and Bo Peep steal your heart? It doesn’t matter if you’re are an office-goer or a pre-school toddler, Pixar’s Toy Story franchise has found its way back into our psyches! Take your love for your favourite Toy Story character to the next level and dress like them this Halloween. From the classic cowboy sheriff get-up to the sassy shepherdess dress, you’ll definitely get a win at this year’s costume contest!
A Bada** from the Star Wars Galaxy
If you still can’t get over George Lucas’ archetypal tale of good versus bad set up in a far-away galaxy world, dig into your love and give yourself a fan moment this Halloween. Dress as a Jedi or a Sith and walk around wielding a light-up lightsaber. Honestly, you can’t go wrong! No Halloween party can have enough of the characters from this epic saga. Be a part of the cult following and imitate your favourite hero or villain from this saga!
