It’s officially one week until Halloween. Do you have your costume yet? Or are you still waiting for inspiration to strike?
We think we can help you in one way or another. Whether you want to be in the know of what’s en vogue this year for Halloween. Or whether you want to know what to avoid so you stand out from the crowd.
There’s no denying that people get inventive around Halloween, they dress up as whatever character they’re obsessed with that year. We’re sure every year there’s a stand out costume choice that rises up through pop culture. However, what are the top five Halloween costumes you’ll be seeing on the streets this Halloween?
Defacto have compiled a list of the costumes we think you’ll be seeing a lot of this October 31st…
5 – Emojis.
This Halloween trend has been knocking about since emojis began. You may be more inclined towards being the women with bunny ears emoji with your best friend. Or you may be feeling like making everyone giggle (or roll their eyes) with the poo emoji. Whatever way you look at it emoji costumes are versatile and easy to make. There’s so many to choose from and you can even get a whole group of you to go as emojis. It may be overplayed, but it’s overplayed for a good reason.
4 – Superheroes.
Every year we are bombarded with superhero movies. Some better than others… This year we had very highly talked about flicks like Deadpool and the imaginatively named ‘Batman vs. Superman’. There’s no doubt we’ll be seeing superheroes everywhere. Whether it’s the Gal Gadot version of Wonder Woman or classic Batman and Robin. You’re guaranteed to see a comic book character in a bar at some point.
3 – Presidential Candidates (aka Trump and Clinton).
We’re not sure if this is a good couples costume idea or not and we’re not sure if we every will be. But, it looks like this is a sought after costume idea in both America and the UK. Sales on trouser suits for women must be through the roof. We’re not too surprised though, with the American presidential election looming ever closer and Trump making a fool of himself at every given turn, there’s no wonder people want to dress up as him. With a suit and a mask of their face, you could be out partying with minimal effort!
2 – Eleven from Stranger Things
Stranger Things has taken the world by storm since it streamed on Netflix. We highly recommend it if you live under a rock and still haven’t seen it. More specifically, the character of Eleven has taken root in everyone’s hearts. Numbers have proven this costumes popularity. Sales of pink collared dresses and blonde wigs have been steadily climbing on approach to the big day and that can only mean one thing… You’re going to be seeing a lot of Elevens this Halloween.
1 – Harley Quinn.
We honestly feel like we shouldn’t need to tell you this. Everyone knows Halloween is going to be crawling with Harley Quinn’s. Since the release of Suicide Squad everyone has been obsessed with Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the comic book character. The rebooted look itself has become instantly iconic, the smudged eye make up and the glittery short shorts, its everything you want to wear but cant in every day life. So why shouldn’t you do it for Halloween! We’re sure a lot of ladies will have their boyfriends as Joker styled accessories as well this year…
We decided that, since this look was so popular, we’d challenge our blogger Natalie to recreate the Harley Quinn look! You can watch it here.
