It's almost that time of year again, so get out your favorite costumes and start stocking up on candy. Halloween is just around the corner, and you're going to need a costume that's sure to impress everyone at your Halloween party. You don't want to get stuck with one of the last-minute standbys: a sheet ghost is sure to make you vanish like a real ghost, and when 5.8 million American adults dress as a witch for Halloween, dressing like a witch isn't going to get you noticed at the costume party. Here are the top three creative costumes for Halloween in 2018 just in case you're short on costume ideas.
Heroes and Villains: With the huge surge in comic book movies this year and a large cast to choose from, there's no shortage of superheroes and supervillains to choose from! Pick one from your favorite movie and get creative with it. You might already own some of the pieces for your favorite character in your daily wardrobe. Throw in a wig and some face paint or makeup if you're looking for a costume that's really super. If you don't already own the finishing details, you can pick them up from an online Halloween store fairly easily.
Clever Celebrities: You don't have to look like you just walked off the red carpet to pull off a celebrity costume this year. Wordplay can be your best friend. Pick a celebrity you like and see what puns you can make with their name; you'd be surprised just how far a bit of wit goes with designing a costume. Just a few examples to start: a Queen Bee, or a bag of MandMs, just to name a couple.
- Jokes, Puns, and Memes, Oh My!: People love a good joke, especially if it's built into costumes for Halloween. There are plenty of common words and phrases that can be turned into your winning costume, or try out a meme costume to make everyone laugh (or groan, then laugh). If you've got a party with some close friends, maybe use an inside joke you've got going with them; it's sure to catch their attention.
