For the best Halloween 2015 costumes for women, inspiration continues to arrive from the likes of popular movie and television themes. Some of the top costume ideas in women’s choices come from “Maleficent,” “Batman The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Star Wars” as well as “The Hunger Games.” There’s also timeless classics on the list, but new pop culture icons from hit movies and TV are certainly separating themselves from the pack.
On Oct. 6, the ABC News site reported that among the top trends in costumes for 2015 is Star Wars, as it made the popular list for adults, kids and pets this particular year. The return of the hit movies in the form of a brand new trilogy set three decades after “Return of the Jedi” is certainly helping. For women, there’s female Stormtroopers and Darth Vader costumes making the top 10 lists. Princess Leia in her classic garb also is found on many bestselling costume lists.
Superheroes have always been a big deal with men and women due to comic books as well as the TV shows and movies that are spawned from them. Batman continues to be a classic selection and for women the Catwoman bodysuit is right near the top of the bestsellers list. Also up there in popularity is Harley Quinn, a newer Batman villain that will appear in the 2016 film “Suicide Squad.” These costumes are also popular with cosplay enthusiasts at Comic Con events around the nation.
Angelina Jolie’s appearance as the main villain in “Maleficent” seems to have kept that costume among the top of the bestsellers as well. It features a very striking look that stands out among that sea of Star Wars and Batman costumes seen at most parties. In addition to the Jolie-inspired costume, is the one that Jennifer Lawrence dons for “Hunger Games: Mockingjay.” The costume is a hit with women and will certainly continue to be popular as the final movie in the novel-based film series is on the way.
One other trend ABC mentions that women and men will certainly be able to go super creative with is “throwback costumes.” The 90s in particular have made a nice comeback and costumes will see the colors and themes revived. The Powderpuff Girls, Spice Girls, Britney Spears and many other pop culture icons will be making their way to Halloween parties this year. This particular trend will give a way to be creative in terms of making a fun “do-it-yourself” costume that doesn’t look like all the rest at the big event.
