Best Halloween Costumes inspired by 2019 Popular TV Series
Game of Thrones
With its finale this year, the GOT effect is going to last forever deep in our souls. GOT inspired outfits will be a huge hit this year be it Halloween or at any other costume party. Wun Wun giant is, for sure, the character that impacts the most for a Halloween night. Have a mask and prepare your voice to sound like him. It is very scary, just what you want for the occasion. Although your clothes have to look like the clothes of the character, few people will pay much attention to your clothes as the face is so terribly ugly.
As a female Game of Thrones character, The High Priestess costume, with its red hood and gown, will impress your party. You can add threatening gestures to make it look eviller when you knock at the door and it suddenly opens.
Regardless of gender, the White Walker mask is a great option for Halloween. Guaranteed to look ghostly all night!
The Big Bang Theory
Love the nerdy scientist from the Big Bang Theory? With only a few episodes to go for the finale, we’re going to miss the sarcastic Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, cunning Howard, Amy, Penny, and Bernadette. This one is the Flash tee Sheldon wore in many episodes.
This hoodie is my favorite. It has Bazinga written on the front side and the backside is filled with hand symbols. You probably know 3 of them from the classic game Rock Paper Scissors. If you’ve watched the Big Bang Theory, chances are that you probably know the other two. Spock and Lizard.
This suit is meant for Doctor Who fans. In the year 2013, to solve a mystery at the National Gallery (London), the eleventh doctor is called.

Avengers are Earth’s mightiest superheroes. They’re here to save the World from Thanos. There are many costumes that will turn eyes. Thor with his Stormbreaker, Iron Man suit, Hulk, Captain Marvel, Spiderman, and the beast Thanos himself with the gauntlet.
Among the Disney Descendants costumes, Carlos, the son of Cruella De Vil, has everything to succeed in Halloween. Although Carlos is a young character, the outfit can fit any man, regardless of age, if costume and make-up are well prepared. He can have that evil, distrustful look that causes a frightening impact on other people at their first glance. Evil look in combination with the jumpy and anxious behavior. Imagine the reaction of a person who opens the door and stares at a well depicted Carlos with the black and white wig. Well, you might want to have your hair dyed. If Carlos is your choice, have great make-up and rehearse the behavior. Watch for the dogs and show you are very afraid of them if the opportunity is given to you.
Jay, the son of Jafar, is another great option. And it is not because of the ugliness of his father, the villain of Aladdin. Jay is a handsome, punkish, athletic thief. For Jay, have punk gloves and show them well.
The best female character for Halloween among Disney Descendants is Mal, the daughter of Maleficent. The long, dark, colored hair that partially hides a face with a sharp, killing, evil look impresses at first glance. All of that surrounded by the high violet collar that can be very threatening to the one who opens the door at night.
Wonder Woman costumes are very much preferred by girls and women alike because people can easily recognize them and most are fans of the unforgettable original character of Lynda Carter. You might want to check the weather for Halloween night or, in your suit preparation, have an option to get more protected in case it is a chilly night in your area. Wonder Woman looks sensual so do not go for this costume if you do not feel you have a sleek figure. It is essential to include the gloves and forehead shield. Have a black, thick-haired wig to complement the character as it should be.
Master Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi are already classic options for clothes. The characters may look too good for Halloween but the Yoda mask and a lightsaber at night will be very impressive and cause the desired effect. It helps if some of the guys in your group dress like white storm troopers.
Aquaman, although it comes from the water, must look dirty and careless with the voluminous hair and beard. It might not be the best set-up for a cold night but, anyway, it will impress and have that evil look.
Of course, the girls can go for the Wonder Woman get-up but they might want to dress like Green Lantern with the green mask on the face. It will for sure be a hit and something different from what people are used to seeing.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Paint your face green and dress the Gamora regalia. And make it a little lighter green than the color you see in your screen to compensate for the night. You are going to be unforgettable, no doubt about it. Fit a dark long hair wig in your head if you need it to complement the character.
Many people would like the dress the Rocket Racoon costume but you might want to cause more impact dressed like Drax The Destroyer. Choose a mask that looks like bleeding scars and has in your hand's blades that look threatening sharp.
Annabelle Comes Home
Look like a bad, very bad doll on Halloween evening. Make a kill with the white gown, red hair and bleeding scars on your face. You will have the advantage that the Anabelle look is already associated with evil in the minds of most of the people.
We’re nearly halfway through our list. Keep reading as more interesting options are coming up.
Megatron will scare to death anyone who opens the door you have knocked. The big, voluminous, metal look with an evil face does not need a Halloween night to cause panic to most of the people. You can’t miss the joy if you dress a Megatron costume.
The Emoji Movie
Do not choose a happy emoticon face for Halloween, if your goal is to have people scared when they open the door to you. A happy face will not sound convincing to say trick or treat. Go for a grinning face or even a tongue out faces to cause more reaction people.
Beauty and the Beast
If you are going to trick-or-treat this year with your significant other, one excellent option is to pair up with The Beauty and The Beast couple costumes. It will look better if Beauty is skinny and Beast is tall and athletic. You can even rehearse the voices of the characters to have one offering the treat and the other the trick. Just guess who should be the evil one.
Pirates of the Caribbean
When it comes to the Pirates of the Caribbean’s best costumes everybody thinks to Jack Sparrow. Yes, Johnny Depp´s character is one of the easiest faces to spot and pirates, in general, are more associated with tricks than treats. So, you will look threatening anyway.
Jack is so widely known that there are male and female dresses of him. Carina is an option for the girls, although the long dress will strike people as being more beautiful than scary.
Barbosa with his immense hat will impact on many people. Again, people associate pirates with something evil so Barbosa can be very effective to get the best treats.
The Goatee costume can be very impressive in a Halloween night, as well. If this is your choice, a good recommendation is to get you onboard for at least a week before the occasion and let it grow carelessly, without any grooming. Add the dreadlocks-style hair with the costume and you are ready to knock on the doors.
LEGO Ninjago Movie
Nya for the girls and Lloyd for the boys if you prefer to have the Lego Ninjago get-ups. Both will make people react and prefer a quick treat, mainly if they see ninja swords and angry eyebrows. It is essential to wear the proper black gloves to give the toy look to your hands.
Shopkins are exceptional costumes to young girls that want to cause more impact for their beauty than for their evil make up. Peppa-mint with a light blue wig and pink dress will look as sweet as the treat she is asking for and many people will concede to that. The same goes true for the Apple Blossom outfit, that can be emphasized with apple perfume.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
A brave Zelda with a golden tiara and sword will make wonders on Halloween night. She can easily impose a treat to anyone if trained to show them an authoritarian face.
For the boys, Link with Master Sword, Hylian Shield and the long ears that look like coming from the middle of the long hair disguised by the green hood is an excellent costume. Both Zelda and Link can get the best treats in Halloween.
The scary clown Pennywise is a costume that can fit male and female alike. It is important to have a big wig so that the red hair will make your head look many times larger than what it is and also have monstrous ugly teeth, large enough to keep the mouth open to make room for them. The teeth must be disgusting and cause a reaction of repugnance. They will get you the treat, for sure.
Riku with baggy blue pants and large shoes is a recommended costume for Halloween. Have the thick blade sword and the grayish wig with hair that comes down almost vertically and you are ready to make a difference in your group of friends.
For the girls, Shion with her long black dress will be seen as a bad witch in the night, no matter how she behaves. Black short hair and a key big enough to be perceived as a weapon will complement the outfit to make it look like ready to give the tricks to anyone.
If you feel like wearing Power Rangers costumes, convince you, crowd, to follow suit. A complete group of Power Rangers will impress more than one single ranger surrounded by pirates, ghosts or zombies. The preferential character would be Zack and Kimberly, both with mask or make-up along with the costume. Of course, you will have to discuss in your group who are going to be the stars and who are going to be the supporting actors.
The advantage of this costume is that the Rangers are well known and nobody would deny a treat to those who are here to save the world.
It is hard to dress like Cars. It should be more for toddlers than any other age as costumes of Lightning McQueen and Cruz look sweet and some people will have difficulty to associate them with the movie. Anyway, they are a good option for toddlers.
My Little Pony the Movie
You can dress colorful like Rainbow Dash. Put on the colored wig and the big eyes mask to look impressive. If you do it well, you can expect an amazing response because the Little Pony costume will be appealing to most people who open the door during Halloween night.

Outfit + Makeup = Awesomeness
Makeup is a necessary complement to your outfit and you make a terrific impact. Think how great it can be if you knock on the door of your neighbor, who have known you for many years yet cannot recognize you in this makeup and outfit.
Besides, keep in mind that you are portraying a personality so it is time to practice your theater skills. Have fun! Along with the costume, study your character. Learn the way they speak, act, behave and play them accordingly. Always remember it is a night supposed to be scary, so try to make your persona act and sound scary. People who open the door to you must be surprised, yes, but if they are afraid and feel threatened for a couple of seconds, you have made it.
Perhaps you can make a contest in the group to choose which one has best played the chosen character. Not only the costume but the behavior along the night. Play the bad guy of the movie for the first seconds each time someone opens the door to you and end up your phrases with a "trick or treat" in an intimidating tone. People will engage in your play and will thank you for making their evening more enjoyable too.
Remember, Halloween celebrates skeletons, ghosts, and monster just as a remembrance of all saints.
Get ready with your costume have a very happy Halloween!
