Costume Ideas for Halloween 2016 Based on Pop Culture

 

Just in case you don’t know who to dress up as yes. Besides, you can’t go wrong with what’s trending

 

 

ELEVEN, STRANGER THINGS

Because what girl doesn’t want to be Eleven? Besides, she’s the new girl power

 

 

What you need

Dig up your Peter Pan-collared dresses from 2011, throw on a blue bomber jacket or parka and pair with trusty white sneakers. Or just get an oversized yellow shirt—this easy costume idea can be borrowed from the boys—and pour all your effort into perfecting your makeup

Felicity Jones takes on Jyn Erso’s character, and we’re loving the rebel look and slept-in eye makeup

What you need

Go through your closet and find all that’s black, browns and dusty green. You’ll also need a black scarf to wear as headgear and brown fingerless gloves to complete the vibe

 

Get in the mood

 

HARLEY QUINN, SUICIDE SQUAD

Nothing says the Halloween costume of 2016 quite like Harley Quinn—the character many of us will probably be dressed up as this year. Margot Robbie makes bad look so good, that we don't mind if everybody else shows up at a party looking like her 

 

 

What you need

A red bomber jacket, a statement or plain white tee you can paint on and puncture (again, things you can find in your closet or somebody else’s) sequined underwear and fishnet stockings—these you might have to buy. Add a pile of gold accessories, a black belt, a baseball bat and white heeled boots, and you’re good to go

 

Complete the look with the right hair and makeup

What you need

Seriously, just a gray hoodie you can put holes in and a badass ‘tude to match

 

Get in the mood

 

TEAM ROCKET, POKEMON

In the spirit of Halloween, let’s be bad and dress up as the adorable villains of Pokemon

What you need

An all white outfit, which you and your friend/s already have in your closet. Black rubber gloves, available in the supermarket! Because creative halloween costumes are made up of stuff you already have or are easily available. See how far your creativity will take you and watch how to get Jessie's hair below.
