As you may know, Halloween is my favorite holiday in the world and because of that, I’ve decided to do a number of Halloween themed posts just to get everyone in the spirit of things. You can also check out some other Halloween posts I did last year in my Halloween category!
This year’s list of unique Halloween costumes spans the scope of characters from films, video games, TV shows and even anime characters that I think would be really fun. You could even do some of these with a boyfriend/girlfriend and/or a group of your friends if you wanted to.
Top 10 Unique Halloween Costume Ideas for Women
You and your friends could go as the girls from Spring Breakers or even the rapper Alien. Its pretty unique, you can do it as a group, and the costumes would be pretty cheap! All you need is a neon colored bikini, some sassy attitudes and temporary manic panic hair dye (optional).
Female Video Game Characters, Especially Assassin’s Creed Liberation
Any female video game character would be a ton of fun, though probably a bit more complicated to pull off. My favorite VG character this year is Avéline from Assassin’s Creed: Liberation. She’s such a badass character and you could choose to wear her “Lady” uniform which is a period dress or her more awesome costume, in my opinion, the one shown above which is her “Assassin” outfit that has some American Colonial Soldier influence to it with a bit more modern pizzazz. Other fun female characters from video games: Little Sister from Bioshock, Elizabeth from Bioshock, Lollipop Chainsaw, Lilith from Borderlands/ Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, any number of female characters from Tekken/Street Fighter/ Dead or Alive/ Mortal Kombat, and others.
The Bling Ring
If you feel the need to glorify these young criminals, feel free to dress up as the girls from the infamous “Bling Ring” and rock your stolen style. All you need are designer clothes (or ones that look designer), blingy jewelry, sunglasses, and a stuck up sense of entitlement and privilege.
The Walking Dead
Whether you want to be a zombie from the Walking Dead universe or a more notable character, this is always a fun one. There must always be zombies at Halloween, amirite? A personal favorite would be the governor, but since this is for women, I’d say Mishone is a close second and all you need are boots, jeans, and a samurai sword to be a total badass.
Dollskill.com, one of my affiliates, has some crazy cool and unique costumes this year! The costumes themselves aren’t all that unique (ie; witch, unicorn, doll, etc.), but the execution (get it?) is fantastic and kind of gives a fun, fashionable and unique edge to each costume that I think a lot of people would really like.
Dead/Zombie-fied Civil War Soldiers
For some reason, this just sounded like an awesome idea to me. I love dressing up in military fashion and you could decide which side you’re on – North or South – and zombie-fy or Undead yourself as you please!
Creepy Possessed Girl from Evil Dead Remake
This girl was so creepy! The Evil Dead remake was surprisingly good and quite scary actually. The freakiest parts were with the possessed sister – Look at the makeup on her! SO SCARY! I think this would make a great costume and it requires very little costume. The costume itself is just regular clothes and mostly gore makeup so I’d look up some tutorials on how to get those effects if you’re looking to freak people out. Oh, and practice your insane crazy lady face/eyes.
The Conjuring Couple or Creatures from The Conjuring
This film was so creepy! The ghosts/demon spirits were especially scary, but if you didn’t want to work that hard and still have a unique costume you could go as the Warren couple and it would still be pretty creepy and unique. Their costumes aren’t too complicated. Mr. Warren basically wears a suit the entire film and Mrs. Warren wears awkward gothic looking flowing sleeves and dresses with witchy shoes.
Light, L, Misa, Rem, or Ryuk from Death Note
Probably not everyone is familiar with this anime/manga and, if not, check it out. The story is really intricate and cleverly written and the characters are very unique. If you’d like a girlier costume, go with Misa Amane, girlfriend of Light. Otherwise, couples could go as Light and Misa or even scarier, Shinigamis Rem and Ryuk. Check it out!
The Headless Horseman, 4 Horsemen of Apocalypse, Witch(es), Ichabod Crane, or any of the creatures from Sleepy Hollow/ Fox Sleepy Hollow TV Show
There are so many cool options from Fox’s new Sleepy Hollow TV show, but my favorite for a group would be either witches or the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse (donning Colonial soldier uniforms of course!) . Single person costumes would be Katrina, Ichabod, or any of the creatures/witches seen so far. One of the creepiest ones, to me, is the Sandman.
So those are my top 10 unique Halloween costume ideas for women!
