Best Halloween Costume Ideas for 2017

I have another guest post for you guys today and I’m loving it!!! She has so many great ideas for Halloween! I can not wait to take the boys and look for costumes!

Even though it’s still a few weeks away, if you want to go to a Halloween party and be breathtakingly stunning, you should be planning your costume. If you don’t have an idea, don’t panic, because we bring you this year’s best ideas for a Halloween costume. Searching the web, you’ll bump into a ton of ideas whose number is constantly on the increase, and according to what people pin the most on Pinterest, the most popular costumes are those inspired by pop-culture. I’ve compiled a list of some of the best costumes out there, and even if you don’t find anything you like, I hope it will inspire you to be creative and think of something on your own.

Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman has dominated the box office this summer, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she’ll dominate this year’s Halloween parties as well. If you visit Pinterest, you’ll find more than 200,000 Wonder Woman costume ideas. Looks like everybody loves that girl power, so if you’re a fan, dress up as this Amazon warrior with a dynamic dress, shield, sword, and knee-high boots.

Pennywise the Clown


The latest adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 classic is another big-time movie hit, which is why fans of horror movies want to transform into Pennywise the Clown. When you manage to freak out everyone at the party, you’ll see that spending time in the makeup chair was totally worth it. As for the costume, it’s a simple clown suit that you can make from a white, ruffled dress and leggings with red pom-poms. The bone-chilling makeup has to be perfect, as it’s the most important for the scary clown appearance.

Taylor Swift the undead


In the late August, Taylor Swift launched a new video for “Look What You Made Me Do”, so there’s no point in being a regular Taylor Swift this Halloween. In the video, Taylor is a zombie, so you can replace the red lipstick and blonde curls with a creepy makeup, blue dress, and plenty of mud. If that’s too much, you can go for her goth look – find a gothic dress online with quality craft, black fishnet stockings, black knee-high boots, and some good goth makeup.

Belle (Beauty and the Beast)


The fans of the “tale as old as time” are in search of yellow dresses. There’s even a reported leap in online search traffic for gowns like the one worn by Emma Watson in this year’s Disney adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast. For this costume, you need a lemon yellow, buttercup or saffron frock. Don’t try going with a corset, because you need to be flexible and able to dance. After all, it is a 21st century Halloween party, not a 19th-century ball.

A Game of Thrones character


There’s a global frenzy for Grecian and simple light blue gowns like those worn by Daenerys Targaryen (thank you Emilia Clarke’s costume designer). The Khaleesi-inspired look is very popular, with an increase of 91% in Pinterest saves on the “Khaleesi” look. If you’re going with your significant other, you want to dress up together, and you are A Game of Thrones fans, then look no further than Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow (with his shaggy fur look that is also a popular Halloween costume).



The leopard, black cat, and lion costumes are so last year’s choice. This Halloween, there’s a new king of the jungle – the giraffe. The saves for giraffe costume and makeup on Pinterest are up to almost 1200% since June last year. So, if you want to go with the giraffe costume, you’ll be making a great choice. A fluffy giraffe costume probably won’t be good for a whole night of partying, but you can find a lighter giraffe combination (try, and complement it with a giraffe Halloween makeup.

This year’s Halloween will be inspired by record-breaking blockbusters, TV shows (such as the Game of Thrones series), and pop-cultural obsessions. Using my passion for Halloween, I’ve created a list of the best costume ideas for this October.
