Let the Fun Begin!
This year proves to be very exciting as there are a number of great costume ideas that are coming out of the world of pop culture. There have been a number of great movies this year, especially in the superhero genre. People are starting to gear up for the best holiday of the year now that we are less than 60 days from Halloween 2016!
Costume Ideas So Far…
Many people are wondering what the top choices are for this year’s Halloween parties. Let’s take a look at what we predict will be the most popular outfits based on the world of entertainment, film, TV, and comic books.
Best Group Halloween Costume Ideas
There is always that one person in every group of friends that goes all out on their costume every year, winning the top prize and coming up with a unique outfit that steals the show. But is there anything better than dressing up as a group of characters or celebrities as your Halloween costume? Winning the prize for being the best collaboration beats any single prize in our book!
There were definitely some epic films that were released in 2016 that make for some great character combinations for you and your friends. Earlier this year, Captain America: Civil War burst onto the scene and was a big hit among comic book fans. It introduced an awesome plot and brought out some of Marvel’s best superheroes and villains, each with their own unique costume and accessories.
This film was full of action and we got to see a showdown between the forces of Captain America and the team that supports Iron Man. Team Captain America was Hawkeye, Sharon Carter, Falcon, Bucky Barnes, Ant-Man, and Scarlet Witch. Team Iron Man consisted of War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther, The Vision, and a surprise entry by Spider-Man. Imagine if you had enough friends to cover this many characters! You could walk into the local bar, haunted house, or Halloween party and impress everyone with such an epic group costume!
There is only one choice that might be better than this for a group of comic book character cosplay, and that’s dressing up as the cast of Suicide Squad! This movie was easily the most anticipated superhero/supervillain movie of 2016 and introduced us to a number of great characters including a new take on The Joker by Jared Leto. Margot Robbie was cast as Harley Quinn, the first time this character made an appearance on the big screen in a live action film. Previously, Harley Quinn had only appeared in the comic books and TV series that were created in the 1990’s. Since then she has been an incredibly popular choice as a Halloween costume for women.
Normally she wears a red and black jumpsuit and is dressed up like a female clown or harlequin to be exact. Margot Robbie’s character introduced a new look that includes blue and red pigtails and an interesting jacket. She wields a baseball bat as her primary weapon which is pretty funny if you ask us. Other major characters include Will Smith as Deadshot and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc. There are certainly some epic choices in the mix and for this reason we have to conclude that dressing up as the characters from Suicide Squad is the number one choice for 2016 group Halloween costumes.
Best Female Costume – Sexy Harley Quinn
This leads us to our next choice, which is the top Halloween costume for women in 2016. Without a doubt, Margot Robbie’s portrayal of The Joker’s girlfriend will bring about a wave of women that will dress up as Harley Quinn for Halloween in 2016. Young women would often dress as the classic version of Dr. Harleen Quinzel, with the red and black jumpsuit outfit with the female jester cap as opposed to the brand new Harley Quinn Suicide Squad costume.
Best Male Costume – The Joker
Well, you may have seen this coming, but we couldn’t resist. Any time there is a brand new take on the most famous villain of all time, we know that there will be thousands of attempts at getting the look just right. Jared Leto introduced a totally fresh look for The Joker which included a new purple jacket, tattoos, and of course the wild green hair. Not to mention the fact that both Harley Quinn and The Joker work together as the best couples costume for 2016. We highly recommend getting yourself a Suicide Squad joker costume for this year’s party.
Hell, the craziest costume of all might be when a girl decides she wants to become The Clown Prince of Crime. We have seen a really impressive group of women take on the joker costume and make it into something special. As long as you find the right green wig, white makeup, and purple suit jacket, you can easily become the hit of the party. Just don’t get taken away to Arkham Asylum!
As we count down to Halloween 2016, we’ll add a few posts on what we believe are the hottest costume ideas. Each year there are always some surprises so we will be looking to see if there are any outstanding couples costumes or group costumes that are a hit. Don’t wait too long to think of a great costume idea! Start planning well ahead of time so that you can piece together what you need or coordinate with friends. Waiting until the last minute will always result in a poor costume execution or a complete lack of creativity.
Talk to your girlfriend or boyfriend, talk to your friends, and start picking characters.
