If you’re coming up blank on Halloween costumes, don’t worry, there’s plenty of inspiration coming from pop culture.
2021 was a good year for TV shows and movies; “Bridgerton” flirted its way into our hearts with curtsies, manners, and Regé-Jean Page, “Squid Games” captivated and terrorized the nation, Disney+ allowed us to connect our favorite superheroes on a deeper level, and plenty of highly-anticipated movies -- from “Halloween Kills” to “Venom” -- hit theaters following a COVID-19 delay.
Looks from these shows and movies ensure that not only will you have a great costume idea for your upcoming spooky season celebrations, but heads will turn (or roll!) when they see you!
To help you get started, we rounded up a handful of pop culture influenced outfits that will be great costume ideas for your upcoming spooky season celebrations:
Wanda became a household name when the first season hit Disney+ earlier this year. You can honor the series by rocking her exact Halloween costume this year to channel your inner Scarlet Witch.
The Michael Meyers mask is iconic, but with a new installment hitting theaters to put an end to the battle between Michael and Laurie, it’s timely too.
“The Forever Purge” hit theaters this year to breathe new life into the franchise. Now, you can bring the dystopian horror to the real world with the flashing mask that’s bright and haunting. And hopefully, you don’t hear the sirens while you’re out celebrating… or else.
The classic initially came out in 1984, but the love for the spook-hunters has been revived with the upcoming “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” hitting theaters this November. The classic costume comes with a proton pack so you can capture all the ghouls and goblins!
We’re all a little mad, so why not have a little fun with it by dressing up as one of the most dangerous supervillains in the world. You can choose from two different outfits worn by Harley Quinn in 2021’s “Suicide Squad” -- the red costume dress or the DC look. Be sure to pair either with the braided red and black wig for accuracy.
Cause trouble just like The God of Mischief, who went on plenty of time traveling adventures throughout the first season on Disney+.
“We are Venom!” Bring home the mayhem when you dress up as the symbiotic villain and Spider-Man’s arch nemesis, who hit the big screen again this year in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage.”
