10 Fictional Halloween Costumes for Adults & Kids

Halloween is a very different occasion for adults and kids. Children see the magic of Halloween through experiencing one night completely different to any other, while adults generally don’t experience this wonderment, having seen it so many times before. That being said, there’s one thing that adults and kids will always have in common: dressing up.

Although some people enjoy putting together costumes that strike fear into the hearts of even the most courageous, others look to pop culture for a little more inspiration. A huge percentage on Halloween costumes in the 21st century are now based on fictional characters, whether it’s an evil villain from a Disney film, a heroic storybook outlaw, or even Japanese anime cosplay.


Halloween means transforming yourself into something else for the night, whether it’s scary, hilarious, or really adorable. This your chance to bring your favourite motion picture to life, step outside the pages of your beloved childhood book, or create something weird and wonderful in celebration of the eccentric. If you’re a little stuck for ideas, we’ve put together a list of 10 fictional Halloween costumes for adults and kids. Who will you channel this Halloween?

1. Brave

Everyone loves a fantastical adventure film – kids and adults alike. Perhaps the biggest hit in 2012 was Disney Pixar’s Brave, which saw Merida, a courageous Scottish princess, on a quest to go her own way in life – but encountering a catastrophic curse. If you want to discover the true meaning of courage this Halloween, check out this McCall’s pattern for adults and kids. Your costume’s fate lives with you; you’ve only got to be brave enough to see it.

2. Tangled

From a defiant daughter, to a captive teenager; next up, we have Disney’s Tangled. This age-old tale is based on the German fairytale of Rapunzel, published in the 19th century by the Brothers Grimm. But there’s no helpless damsel in distress in this modern twisted tale, moreover a feisty teen seeking freedom. If your empowered little girl’s looking to go on a whirlwind adventure like Rapunzel, this Simplicity children’s pattern may just help.

3. Zorro

At the rise of pulp fiction in the early 20th century, came Zorro: a Castilian outlaw born and raised in California with a mission to defend the people from tyrannous villains. This mysterious masked man is not only a written character, but he was also adapted into a fictional film in the late ‘90s. If your kid would like to become this century-long success story for one night only, create them a cape and eye mask using this KwikSew pattern, or an entire Zorro costume using this McCall’s pattern. Minus the pencil moustache, of course.

4. Little Red Riding Hood

Another classic fairytale featured on our list is none only but Little Red Riding Hood. This European twisted folk tale sees a hooded girl venture to her grandmother’s house, only to be tricked by a dressed-up wolf. It’s a childhood story of nightmares – perfect for Halloween! If your little adventurer would like to become this cloaked wanderer (minus the gruesomeness), stitch together a red hooded cape using this KwikSew children’s pattern, or an entire Red Riding Hood costume using this McCall’s pattern. You could even make a matching outfit for yourself, too!

5. Robin Hood


From Little Red Riding Hood, to Robin Hood – we’ve definitely got a classic theme going on today. Robin Hood is considerably less hooded, but boy does he have style. This heroic young outlaw famously stole from the rich to give to the poor; his tale told throughout the ages in English folklore. If you’ve got a hero in your life who needs a costume to suit, this Butterick pattern and this Burda Style pattern will make different interpretations of the costume for the little man, while this Burda Style pattern will make one for the grownups.

6. Frozen’s Elsa and Anna

Do you want to build a Frozen costume? Disney’s smash-hit animation is arguably one of their biggest films to date – and it’s still going strong three years down the line! Kids and adults alike rejoice at this epic fantasy musical adventure, following the snow queen unwillingly trapping her kingdom in a perpetual winter. Whether you liken your character to Queen Elsa, or see yourself as more of a lovable Anna type, you have a wealth of different options to recreate their memorable costumes. Create costumes for kids using this Simplicity patternand this Simplicity Coronation Day pattern, or create adult costumes using this Simplicity pattern and this Simplicity pattern. Better yet, if you need to make costumes for adults AND children, try out this McCall’s pattern.

7. Cosplay

Cosplay is incredibly popular at the moment, widely seen throughout comic conventions across the world. But what actually is it? Cosplay is simply the words ‘costume’ and ‘play’ put together. So, ‘cosplayers’ dress up as Japanese anime and manga characters from films, comics and games. If you’ve got an anime-loving teen who wishes they could join the copay craze, this Simplicity pattern and this Simplicity pattern will help you get on track.

8. Warrior & Princess Warrior

Gone are the days of the princess being saved by her knight in shining armour. Today’s women are empowered, strong and independent – and now you can let the world know through your choice of Halloween costume! Whether you want to become a world-class archer with body armour to suit, or a foam sword yielding princess with a majestic belt and crown, this Simplicity Warrior pattern and this Simplicity Princess Warrior pattern will transform you into your own hero.

9. Captain Hook

Does Peter Pan have you and the little one completely hooked? In the spirit of Halloween, it’s time to forget the do-gooders and go straight for the baddies. Captain Hook is one of Disney’s most notorious villains, featuring a distinctive hook instead of a hand. If you know someone who’d like to become this fictional antagonist for the night, create them a captain costume using this Simplicity costume, or a Captain Hook imitation outfit using this McCall’s pattern.

10. Mad Hatter & Queen of Hearts

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was originally brought to life in the mid-1860s, but oh boy has it evolved since then. Most recently, we’ve seen Tim Burton’s quirky CGI adaptation of the classic fantasy story, centred on the Mad Hatter searching for his family. If you’d like to become Burton’s interpretation of this wacky character, look no further than this Simplicity pattern. However, if you’d rather have an excuse to scream “off with their heads!” at everyone around you, this McCall’s pattern will help you to make the story’s main antagonist: the Queen of Hearts.

Where to Buy This Year’s 10 Most Popular Halloween Costumes

Dressing up for the holiday hasn’t been an activity reserved just for the kids in recent years. The number of adults — and even pets — wearing costumes to get into the holiday spirit has increased, with the NRF anticipating adults will spend $1.4 billion on costumes for themselves this year (and another $350 million to dress up their furry friends).

With total U.S. Halloween spending expected to reach $7.4 billion this holiday — and young adults age 18 to 24 planning to spend $87 on their 2014 outfits — GOBankingRates investigated online retailers to reveal where consumers can find the best deals on this year’s hottest costumes.

The stores investigated ranged from the online portals of big box retailers — Target, Walmart, Party City, for example — to smaller specialty costume sites like We evaluated each store on the availability of each costume (and variety of options — adult and children’s costumes for both genders were considered). We also curated prices, available discounts and promo codes, and other money-saving deals (such as free shipping).

Click through to see where you should be buying your favorite costume this Halloween.

1. Captain America Costume

The Captain is sure to have a strong showing this Halloween. You’ll find a large selection of costumes patterned after the hero, ranging from inexpensive colored jumpsuits to movie-quality threads.

Even if you don’t have a blockbuster budget, just about every online retailer will have something for you; you’ll find higher-quality (and much more expensive) costumes like the one pictured above at the smaller, more specialty costume retailers, whereas bigger sites like Target and Party City will carry the cheaper versions. The one exception? Walmart, which carried a surprising selection of outfits that varied widely in quality and cost.

For any ladies who wish to don the red, white and blue, just about every retailer carries a women’s version of the costume. But both men and women shouldn’t expect the iconic shield to be part of what they pay for.

  • Price: Simple versions of the costume will run you as cheap as $15 for a shirt and mask, up to around $40 for a full suit; the more elaborate ones can range from $100 to $300. The shield will tack at least an extra $25 to your purchase.

2. Star-Lord Costume

As a central character in Marvel’s 2014 box office giant, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the masked sheriff of the stars will certainly be a costume on the radar of Halloween celebrants this Oct. 31. For a men’s version of the costume, avoid the big box retailers like Target, Walmart and Kohl’s. Instead search around specialty costume retailers like Spirit Halloween.

With that said, the selection for kid’s versions of the costume is limited, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find more than two versions of the Star-Lord Halloween costume at any retailer. Warning — you’ll be buying accessories, like the laser gun, separately!

  • Price: You shouldn’t be paying more than $50; the average Star-Lord costume will run you $10 to $45 for a child’s costume, or $30 to $50 for adults.

  • Price: The basic versions go for about $40. There are higher quality Maleficent costumes running for $100 or more, most of which are modeled after the villain from the original Sleeping Beauty.

  • Coupon and discount offers: Apply code SAVE25 (expires May 2, 2015) at checkout for 25 percent off any costume $20 or more, and receive free U.S. ground shipping on purchases of at least $70.

“Frozen,” the highest-grossing animated film of all time, will without a doubt be chosen by many young Halloween participants this year. Snow queen Elsa might very well be the most popular character from the film. Those looking for a wider selection of child and adult versions of the costume than big box stores can offer should browse around costume specialty retailers, which often carry alternatives like an “ice queen costume.” Tiaras, when pictured, are generally included in the costume set.

  • Price: The cost for a child’s Elsa costume starts around $25 and shouldn’t exceed $40. For adults, the price gets bumped up a small amount to around $50.

5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume

With this year’s live-action “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” film, being a karate-kicking, nunchuck-swinging turtle will be the goal of copious costume wearers on Halloween. Every retailer, whether costume specialty or big box, will carry a wide range of costumes patterned after the four turtles (from low to high quality). You won’t have trouble finding the costumes for any age and gender. Expect to buy any ninja weapons separately.

  • Price: Don’t expect to spend a fortune on one of these costumes. The most expensive ones GOBankingRates could find ran for $90, but generally speaking, a turtle costume should cost you $20 to $35 for kids or about $30 to $50 for teens and adults.
  • Make it yourself? If you’re willing to forego the shell, a simpler version of the costume could be achieved, but at these prices, it might be best to just purchase a pre-made outfit.
  • Pair with: Additional “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” characters, like Splinter, April O’Neil or Shredder.
  • Cheapest at: Target, Party City or

Netflix’s hit show gained quite a bit of popularity in 2014, and there will be a good number of women looking to get their “incarceration” on this Halloween. There are two versions of the costume (beige and orange), and you’ll notice those same two at pretty much any big box and costume specialty retailer you can find, with minimal exceptions. While Walmart and a few costume retailers are missing the product, it shouldn’t be too much trouble to find the costume anywhere else for about $30. Search around, you could find the costume for as low as $24 depending on the site you purchase from.

  • Price: Can be found as cheap as $20, but anything more than $40 is not worth your time.

  • Pair with: Police officer or prison guard costumes.
  • Cheapest at: and Party City.

7. Jon Snow Costume

“Game of Thrones” has arguably been the most popular series on television in recent years. HBO’s big-budget show has perfectly captured George R.R. Martin’s mixture of gritty adult themes and medieval fantasy. One of the more popular characters to dress up as will be Jon Snow (though you’ll also likely see a lot of Daenerys Targaryens and Khal Drogos walking around Oct. 31).

Despite the show’s reputation, you’ll be hard-pressed to find the costume. We recommend as your one-stop shop for “Game of Thrones” costumes, where you’ll find a nice selection of outfits and accessories patterned after multiple characters from the series. A basic Jon Snow outfit retails for about $50 (add another $60 for the deluxe coat). On the other hand, if money is no object, carries an elaborate $700 Jon Snow replica outfit.

Any medieval/fantasy costumes can be adapted to look like a GoT character, or play around with what you already have.

The bow, arrows and quiver will have to be fabricated or bought separately. carries the highest quality version of her leather jacket, priced at $120.

  • Price: To get the desired effect, about $40 will have to be spent on a costume, and another $20 to $30 on a prop bow. Having a black leather jacket is essential for pulling off this look.
  • Make it yourself? This is another one that can easily be homemade and passed off as authentic. Combining a leather jacket, rugged pants, combat boots, bow and arrow, and possibly a wig could be a cheaper/easier alternative.

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has become a staple of Halloween television. The hit show has a diehard following — and its theme makes it a natural choice when picking costumes.

Unfortunately, might very well be the only place to find this costume (and its the wing-embroidered vest) in both men’s and boy’s versions. Accessories are sold separately.

For a wide selection, the main costume retailers you’ll want to browse are Of course, for a more authentic Nicki Minaj experience, you might not want to wear much at all.

10 Halloween Costumes Made Completely of Workout Gear

October is here and that means there’s one question top of mind: What do you go as for Halloween?

While you’ve probably already started scouring Pinterest or hitting up party stores to find that perfect costume, we’re here to redirect your attention to the newest costume shopping destination: the gym.

You heard that right. Why spend Halloween evening walking around in uncomfortable heels or an awkward cardboard-box-style DIY costume when leggings and sneakers – much more comfortable pieces – could create just as epic of a costume?

Here are 10 of our favorite Halloween costumes made completely of workout gear.

Cat Woman

Get the look: Let’s face it: The cat costume has been a Halloween staple for ages and that doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon. This year, put a twist on the traditional (and have an excuse to skip the knee-high boots) by dressing as cat woman instead. Pair this season’s hottest trend, high-waisted leggings, with a crop top and cat ears.


Get the look: With many of the world’s most influential international models now choosing boxing as their workout of choice, we’re seeing a resurgence in boxing gyms, and with that, traditional boxing apparel is suddenly finding itself at the center of street style trends. The sleeveless hoodie is every boxer’s go-to piece so pair that with training shorts and battle braids and you’ve got a Fashion Week-inspired Halloween costume that just may motivate you to hit the gym come Monday morning.

Pokemon Go Trainer

Get the look: Rumor has it that the Pokémon GO Trainers are already topping the list as 2016’s most popular Halloween costume.

The best part: These fictional trainers dress just like the trainers you see at the gym. Yes, we’re talking sweatshirts, baseball caps, and sneakers. Buy Poké Balls at your local party store to complete the look and you’ll be ready to ‘catch’em all.’

Conor McGregor

Get the look: There’s only one ‘Notorious’ – the whole point of the nickname is that there will never be another – but Halloween’s your chance to step into UFC fighter & pop culture icon Conor “the Notorious MMA” McGregor’s shoes for just one evening.

Pair these fashion-forward kicks with a pair of black shorts and invest in a McGregor jersey to complete the look. We have a feeling he won’t be retiring (again) anytime in the near future so, trust us, the jersey is a smart investment. Finish off the look by throwing on shades and waving around the Irish flag.

Ronda Rousey

Get the look: As a Hollywood starlet, cover girl and all around badass, you can dress like UFC superstar Ronda Rousey a lot of different ways, but we recommend sticking to her fiercest look: The UFC Fight Kit. There’s nothing scarier than when Rousey steps into the Octagon, which makes this look the perfect pop culture Halloween costume. Just don’t forget to dodge the paparazzi heading into your Halloween party!

Tennis Player

Get the look: Remember that tennis racket you bought for summer camp as a kid? Time to break it out because you’ll be needing it for this costume.

Wear a white collared shirt with navy or white gym shorts and a pair of retro tennis sneakers for this laid-back look. No tennis player is complete without a signature sweatband; throw yours on and you’ll be Wimbledon-ready just in time for October 31.

Disco Queen

Get the look: Put a modern, more comfortable twist on this defining look from the ‘70s and ‘80s. The Disco Queen was the center of attention at every dance hall, and wearing this disco-ball inspired sports bra and leggings combo is sure to leave you the center of attention at your next Halloween party as well.

Bonus: Remove the crown and this set doubles as the perfect outfit for yoga and Pilates.

The Joker

Get the look: He’s the villain we love to hate. And he just happens to have a defining look as well, leaving the Joker as one of the most popular Halloween costumes year after year.

If you’ve been hitting the gym hard, now’s the time to show that off because dressing as the Joker gives you an excuse to go shirtless (don’t act like you aren’t excited about it). Throw on black joggers and black sneakers and dye your hair green for the final touch.

Sporty Spice

Get the look: It’s a go-to Halloween throwback for all  ‘90s babies. Yeah, yeah, all the Spice Girls had defining style and unquestionable flair but only Sporty Spice was able to still look trendy while still rocking workout gear.

Dressing as her for Halloween gives you the luxury of doing the same. Pair retro, color-blocked leggings with a sports bra or fitted crop top, and pull that hair into a sleek, slick-backed high ponytail.

Comic Book Character

Get the look: Makeup can play just as central of a role in the Halloween costume process. The problem? Even if you go all out with the lipstick and eyeliner, a character is never fully conveyed unless you have apparel to match.

We’ve found a solution to make that easier than ever.

Comic book character makeup is intricate and Pinterest-worthy, but after you spend an hour in front of the mirror getting that makeup down just right, throw on this comic-book-inspired sweater and a pair of loud, printed leggings.

Spooky hot Halloween costumes for couples

From hot nurses to superheroes, rock stars or apocalypse survivors, Halloween costume possibilities are endless. Just let you imagination run wild and envision a whole new you for one night to live your darkest dreams.

Much of the excitement associated to this awesome holiday derives exactly from the ability to dress up and pretend we’re someone else. Adults can have just as much fun as kids do with a bit of inventiveness and courage. If you and your significant other or roommate are trying to figure out who you’ll be this year, here are a few ideas of Halloween costumes for couples.

Bonnie and Clyde are a classic, yet their gangster charm will never fade. Or go for their modern version, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and you’ll surely make an impression. While an elegant suit and a black dress are quite easy to procure, the attitude is what defines a duo fatale so make sure you let it show!

Get inspired by the Pirates of the Caribbean and take a plunge into the dark seas of mystery and myth. You can choose from pirate costumes, Captain Jack Sparrow, the drunken sailor, the damsel in distress, or any of your favorite crew members for a dive into the world of danger and captivating thrills.

I’d go anytime for a Snow White and Huntsman duo to make a statement. Why should Snow White always end up with the prince, why should we follow the same boring path when things could get much more interesting?! Forget about the norms and build your own adventure the way you want it.

But nobody can say spooky better than Gomez and Morticia Adams. They just look so good together, in a ghoulish kind of way of course.

If you can’t find resources in your own closet for some wacky outfit, Chicago costume shops abound in creative offerings. Ragstock features a huge selection of Halloween items, vintage gems for both gals and boys. Just what you need to get you started.
