^ This is how excited I get about Halloween, no joke, haha.
It’s nearly around the corner and after reading this post by Beauty and the Best of the Rest, I was inspired to do my own post on the topic of unique Halloween costume ideas as it’s something I usually obsess over every year, even if I know I won’t be dressing up. I don’t particularly know why that is, but I find it interesting, dressing up that is, no matter what time of year it is, and I enjoy coming up with not-so-typical ideas. Most of these are from TV shows and films I love, but some aren’t. So, with that, here are my top 10 favorite unique Halloween costume ideas!
A Narnian or one of the 4.
I’ve been a fan of Narnia since I was a child so I think it would be really cool to see someone dress up as a Narnian (animal, centaur, ice witch, whichever) or otherwise as any of the 4. I actually haven’t seen this one done at all!
The Rabbit from Donnie Darko.
When this film was first released (back when I was a freshman in high school. I’m old, I know lol jk), it was a serious cult classic. I don’t know that anyone dressed up as anyone from this on Halloween (not anyone I know did anyway), but I think it would be cool to be the rabbit. It was such a creepy costume in the movie! Also, if you want to be lazy, you could do Donnie Darko, but I think that one is a bit burnt out personally. Not many do the rabbit, but maybe it’s because the costume would be a lot of work to make or expensive to buy?
Anyone from Once Upon A Time, especially Rumpelstiltskin, Red, The Evil Queen, Snow White, Pinocchio, or Mulan
I was actually going to be someone from OUAT this year, but since I want to save money, I decided against dressing up this year. Don’t think I won’t do it next year though! Like I care if this goes out of style, I’m still doing it!
A Wessen ( any of them would be scary and awesome) from Grimm. Or you could be a Grimm.
So I’m dying (pro choice of words right?) to see someone dress up as any of the wessen! Whether you want to go as a Fuchsbao, Blutbad, or whichever, I think it would be awesome to see!
Anyone from Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World.
Please, please, anyone but Ramona Flowers. I know, she’s so hip and cool and whatever, but she’s also tired. As if girls don’t dress up as Ramona Flowers on a daily basis! I’m just saying. I’d go Knives any day. Or, you know, Envy.
Anyone from Game of Thrones
I know Khaleesi/Daenerys is pretty popular, but I always thought there were some other cool characters in GoT that could be fun. There’s the Queen of the North, Catelyn Stark, dead zombie-ish Khal Drogo, or Cersei Lannister.
Nucky Thompson or Anyone from Boardwalk Empire
I never really got into this show, but I love Nucky’s character. I also love the costume design. This is a fun way to be a 1920’s flapper girl with more of an identity.
So, what will you be dressing up as this Halloween?
Will it be something a little more classic Halloween or something more pop culture?
