Everyone always wants to have the best Halloween costume, and looking towards popular movies is a great way to get inspired. Dressing as a well-known character will ensure that everyone recognizes your costume and that you are a success at the party.
If you’re looking for some great costume ideas, look no farther than the big screen. Movie character costumes are always a hit, and Halloween 2013 will be no different. Without further delay, here are 10 great costume ideas to inspire you.
1.) Vampires. With the Finale of the Twilight Saga hitting theaters in late 2012, party goers in 2013 can expect a number of Edward and Bella look-a-likes. To achieve this look, you’ll need some pale powder to brush over any exposed skin and a heavy dose of shimmery top-coat or body glitter. Put on some evening wear and you’ll be ready to party it up with the Cullen clan.
2.) Hobbits. The Hobbit is the precursor to the Lord of the Rings. The much-talked-about movie has a nearly cult-like following, so don’t be surprised when you see a lot of pointy ears and curly hair at your next halloween party. To make your Hobbit costume stand out, don’t forget to add a walking stick and a snappy side-satchel. Start working on your accent now if you want to have the edge on the competition.
3.) Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The January 2013 horror film the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is sure to bring a gory edge to Halloween costumes. The movie features plenty of guts and gore that you are sure to see replicated in costumes. To make this look truly special, opt for a high-end prop chainsaw, preferably one with sound effects.
4.) Zombies. Like the past few years, 2013 will see plenty of Zombie costumes. The popularity will be due in part to the February 2013 movie Warm Bodies. The romantic horror chronicles the tale of a zombie that develops romantic feelings towards one of his victim’s girlfriend. Zombie costumes for the men and necrophiliac costumes for the ladies.
5.) Aliens. The animated movie Escape From Planet Earth is sure to inspire plenty of extra terrestrial costumes for the young ones. To get this look, put on your favorite space suit and grab some blue face paint. The robins-egg hued aliens are remarkably human-like in appearance and proportion, so your youngster should have no problem filling the role.
6.) The Wizard of Oz. Thanks to the release of Oz The Great and Powerful in March 2013, there will be a rush on The Wizard of Oz themed costumes. Popular choices for women include witches and Dorothy costumes, while men will favor Oz, Tin Man and Lion costumes.
You’ll never go wrong with a Halloween costume inspired by a movie. Watch for the trends and shop early to ensure that you get everything you need to create the look you’re after.
