Haven’t started your Halloween shopping yet, including looking for a Halloween costume? No need to worry. There’s plenty of Halloween costumes to choose from, but we chose eight of the most popular ones for you to consider this Halloween!
1. Pennywise from IT
The iconic killer clown is back again this season with the release of IT Chapter Two back in September. Fans of creepy clowns will jump at the chance to dress as Bill Skarsgard’s interpretation of Pennywise. This is also a chance to be a little retro and dress as Tim Curry’s version of Pennywise too!
2. Scoops Ahoy from Stranger Things
Netflix’s hit TV show about Dungeons and Dragons (kind of) returned for a third season this past summer, but the momentum certainly carries itself into Halloween. The most recent season also lends itself perfect to the Halloween costume shopper with Scoops Ahoy, the fictional version of Baskin Robbins in Hawkins. Of course, you can also dress in your best eighties attire and say you’re from the show. If there’s something Stranger Things loves more than eldritch horrors, it’s reliving the eighties.
3. The Joker from Joker
Joker is one of the most popular costumes every year because people like to dress up as Batman and another group of people like to dress up as Batman’s nemesis in the hopes they’ll meet at a bar or party or something. The release of Joker this past October will ensure another round of Joker costume interpretations to join the legion of comic book, Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson, and the animated Batman series. But not Jared Leto. Never that Joker.
4. Literally Anyone from the Avengers: Endgame
So, Avengers: Endgame was a pretty big deal huh? Kinda comes as no surprise that literally any character from the movie will be popular this year. Also leaves a wide variety of characters to choose from since pretty much every character ever to appear in a Marvel movie made some sort of an appearance. We’ll just give you some of the most popular ones you’ll probably see: Thanos, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Gamora, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, Loki. That should be a good start.
5. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones
The conclusion to the biggest television phenomenon of all time will no doubt inspire many to dress up as the two most popular characters from the show. If you want to change things up you can also do Sansa Stark or Arya Stark. If you really want to go all out, you can dress as a dragon. Best to jump on this one before the legion of new shows on the history of Westeros come to fruition!
6. Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 2
The remaster of classic horror-survival game Resident Evil 2 has been one of the most popular games of the year. No doubt the gamers out there will want to take advantage of recently-used Comic Con cosplay to dress up as Leon and Claire for Halloween. It helps that there’s plenty of zombies to take care of. Let’s just hope if you choose to dress up as one of these characters you don’t run into a Mr. X costume!
7. Super Mario from Super Mario Bros.
I mean, when isn’t this Halloween costume popular? It’s a-him, Super Mario. He destroys Bowser, has his friends over for parties and kart racing, and even has his own theme park opening next spring in Japan! That’s true, you can look it up. Mario isn’t even the only good option: you got Luigi, Toad, Peach, Wario, Yoshi, and I’m sure you could find a Bowser costume out there somewhere. Be the icon of video games this Halloween.
8. Harry Potter from the Wizarding World Universe
Much like Mario and Batman, Harry Potter and his band of merry wizards have become a cultural phenomenon the likes of which ensure costume makers will always be able to have some sure-fire source material to work with. Everyone loves Harry Potter, old and young, and it’s an easy costume to pull off. Get a big robe, buy a wand and a scarf, and cast magic on candy all night.
