Halloween will be here before we know it, and we have a whole list full of potential costumes for you this year! The past year has been quite a year for pop culture. Spider-Man-No Way Home, Euphoria, Stranger Things, Scream, Top Gun, and Elvis, were just a few of many shows and movies we saw take over.
Ted Lasso’s season finale was watched for 507 million minutes the week it was released. And with the final season on its way, it seems safe to predict that Ted Lasso will be a popular choice among partygoers and trick-or-treaters alike! While the costume wouldn’t be terribly hard to DIY, adults can find anything they need here.
Euphoria became a live-tweeting spectacle earlier this year, with memes spreading all over the internet with an average of 16.3 million viewers per episode. The show’s makeup and costume choices were frequent topics of conversation for a good reason. With plenty of choices to choose from, it’s sure to be a hit. Different choices for a Rue costume can be found here and here. In addition, a copycat version of Maddy’s black dress can be found here, and one of Cassie’s looks can be found here and here.
Stranger Things quickly took over the media this year, catapulting a song released back in the 80s to the top of the charts. Volume One of season 4 was watched for 7.2 billion minutes, making it one of Nielsen’s top streaming weeks ever. Stranger Things costume pieces can be found at Hot Topic, Tillys, and also at Spirit Halloween.
Multiverse of Madness
Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness grossed nearly 190 million in its first week. Marvel costumes are always a hit and are usually easy to keep pretty simple if that’s what you’re going for! Wanda Maximoff and Doctor Strange costumes can both be found at Party City.
Spider-Man – No Way Home hit theaters late last year and practically broke the internet. You could pay tribute to the iconic movie by inviting two friends to dress up as Spider-Man with you, or you could fly solo! Either way, it’s bound to be a hit and a fairly simple look for you to pull off. Costumes can be found on Amazon, as well as at other places.
Only Murders in the Building
Only Murders in the Building was released last year, but Season 2 recently came out, and its popularity is only growing! Grab two friends, and you could easily pull off the looks of the crime-solving trio. To make looking for costume items a little bit easier, I found some copycat pieces of Mabel’s season one finale look at here, here, and here.
The biopic Elvis just exited theaters recently, and it was a massive hit at the box office earlier this summer. There are tons of iconic outfit inspiration to draw from, starting with his Jailhouse Rock costume all the way to his American Eagle jumpsuit.
With Not Okay being based on the current digital environment and fashion trends, it’s an easy pick for a costume this year. Almost everything can be found easily. Here are the links to Danni’s dress, beret, phone charm, and phone case.
Bridgerton without a doubt has impacted fashion and pop culture altogether. There’s even been tons of drama with a Bridgerton musical recently. Choosing Bridgerton as your Halloween costume gives you an excuse to dress up as royalty, all while getting plenty of compliments and recognition for your costume! Here are replicas of Daphne’s dress, Kate’s dress, Simon’s vest, and Anthony Bridgerton’s outfit.
Hocus Pocus 2 is being released right in time for Halloween this year, and it is sure to be a popular choice for many people this holiday season. You can find everything you need to dress up as the beloved Sanderson Sisters at Spirit Halloween.
A League of Their Own
A League of Their Own rebooted this year with a tv show on Amazon Prime. The series proved to be everything an adaptation should be and got several rave reviews. It would be the PERFECT year to dress up as a Rockford Peach!
