5 Costumes to Try This Halloween

Halloween is perfect for letting your creativity run wild and showing off your best costumes. You can be someone from a movie or TV show, become a celebrity, or even dress up as yourself! However, if you’re looking for something more specific, prepare to read some great ideas.

This post will show you some of the favorite Halloween costumes that people have worn over the past few years. And don’t worry — if none of these are right for you, there are plenty more ideas you can find online!


You’ll need a black trench coat, black pants (jeans or dress pants), a black belt, black boots and gloves. Your shirt can be any color but it should have sleeves. You may choose to wear a tie if that’s more your style. Put on your hat and sunglasses and add some makeup—go for the goth look if you’re feeling brave! Put on some socks as well to complete the ensemble.

Scarlet witch

You’re in luck if you’re looking for sexy costumes that always look good. Witches are an easy way to go, and Scarlet Witch is the perfect choice for a woman who wants to be on trend with this season’s witchy outfits.

If you’re not a fan of the Marvel character, you could still dress up as a regular witch; just don’t wear shades of red. You can make it a little DIY project and create your own costume or order a costume online from stores like Smiffys if you’re pressed for time.


Besides the Joker costume, you’ll need some accessories.

These include:

  • A wig and makeup kit to transform yourself into the Joker
  • An accessory kit including a bow tie, handkerchief, cane, wallet and rings
  • A t-shirt that reads “I am the one who knocks” or “If you strike me down…I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”

You will also want to wear pants and shoes in a similar style to those worn by Jared Leto in his role as the Joker in Suicide Squad (2016).


Ghostbuster (Bill Murray): To get the look of this cult classic character, all you need is a jumpsuit and proton pack. Don’t worry if your friends don’t have their own Ghostbusters gear; they can just pretend to be confused tourists trying to figure out what’s going on.

Ghostbuster (Dan Aykroyd): This costume requires more effort than just putting on a jumpsuit—you’ll also want to grow out your hair and style it like Bill Murray’s in the movie. If that’s too much work, consider wearing a wig instead!


For those who spent their youths on a Nintendo console, Mario is a household name. He’s the mustachioed mascot of the Super Mario video game franchise and one of the most recognizable characters in all of pop culture.

Mario first appeared as an Italian plumber in 1981’s Donkey Kong but soon made his way into other games as well. He has since become a staple figure in gaming history, appearing in over 200 titles—more than any other video game character. He also has many memorable catchphrases (including “Let’s-a go!” and “It’s-a me! Mario!”), This will surely come in handy when trying to convince strangers that you’re actually him this Halloween night.

We hope we’ve given you some great ideas for your Halloween costume and helped you feel more confident in your choices. For those whose idea of a costume is anything that doesn’t involve socks and shoes, we’re here to help! All of these costumes can be purchased online at Happy Halloween!
