Halloween is right around the corner; and who doesn’t love a day full of treats, candy, candy, and even more… candy! Each year, many of us can’t help but ask ourselves the question: “What am I going to be this year for Halloween?” On this spook-tacular Halloween, are you going for the scary costume, a movie-inspired costume, or are you undecided? Here are some Halloween costumes you might want to try out this year!
“R” from the movie, Warm Bodies: Movies, TV shows, and books have been incorporating the concept of zombies quite frequently. “R” from the zombie movie, Warm Bodies, is any easy Halloween costume. All you really need is a red sweatshirt, jeans, and some spooky zombie make-up!
Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby: The Great Gatsby(based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel) was one of the highest grossing movies this summer. Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan would be a great dynamic duo costume and a throwback to the 1920’s. For Jay Gatsby – a dandy, white suit will have you saying, “Happy Halloween, old sport!” and for Daisy – a 1920’s flapper costume will do the trick!
“The Grumpy Cat:” A lot of people enjoy dressing up as a cat for Halloween, but why not twist this classic costume up a little bit? “The Grumpy Cat” has been recognized by many people and will definitely be an entertaining Halloween costume choice!
Justin Timberlake: For all you guys who have yet to find the right Halloween costume, try dressing up as the talented, Justin Timberlake! Capture the essence of Justin Timberlake by wearing a suit and tie. It will look as if you are re-creating Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” music video.
Emojis: iPhone fans can unite with this creative costume! Gather up all your friends, each of you can be an emoji. Try wearing a solid outfit (such as a black top, bottoms, and shoes). For the emoji, just make a sign / poster and tape it on!
“Pretty Little Liars” Cast: Season after season, the ABC Family hit show, “Pretty Little Liars,” continues to have fans at the edge of their seats with the plot twists and mysteries! A fun costume for girls can be dressing up as Aria, Spencer, Hanna, Emily and Alison.
Have a safe and fun Halloween!
