Halloween date is October 31, which is Tuesday this year and of course we all wonder what are the Halloween costume trends apart from the usual pirates and zombies. Halloween trends are heavily influenced by blockbuster movies, pop culture and our favorite TV shows, and this year is no exception. We’ve picked 5, which we think are the most prominent this year.
1. Game of Thrones
The most popular TV show around the world, Game of Thrones allures us with its medieval beauty and grandeur. This year, many will take inspiration from characters like the Mother of Dragons or the King in the North. You can look like Daenerys Targaryen in the costume by MarmeloveShop (USA) and Jon Snow in the costume by Kazaz4u11 (UK).
2. Star Wars
Those, who are strong with the force, already anticipate the new sequel of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be released on December 15th. It’s no wonder that this year Star Wars’ characters like Rey and BB8 are as hot as ever. Check out this cool Rey costume from CeciliaDreamStudio (Canada) and absolutely adorable baby BB8 outfit from SimplyClothBoutique (USA).
3. Beauty and the Beast
Disney princesses are always Halloween’s favorites and with Beauty and the Beast remake breaking box office records this March, all eyes will be on you in this astonishing princess Belle costume from DuchessChest (Ukraine). But wait a minute, every princess should be accompanied by her prince and “Beauty and the Beast” is the perfect theme for couples, so here is a gallant Beast costume from HalloweenCostumes (USA).
Evil and dangerous clowns have always been a big hit during Halloween. This year, one of the favorite terrifying clown costumes is Pennywise from blockbuster movie It. You’ll be equally creepy and impressive in Pennywise Costume for Her from VioletHouseClothing (UK) or Pennywise Costume for Him from Blueberrycostumes (Polland).
5. Wonder Woman
There's no denying Wonder Woman has been a huge hit this year. The legendary status of a powerful female is a pop cultural icon and we’ll see a lot of Wonder Woman costumes during this Halloween worn by women and girls. Here is an amazing Wonder Woman Adult costume from VictoriaHofferson (UK) and the cutest little Princess Diana costume from CeciliaDreamStudio (Canada).
