Halloween costumes: The 5 most popular outfit ideas this year – and last minute costumes

Halloween is on the way and already shops have laid out spooky displays, pumpkins are on sale and Marks and Spencer have brought back their Creepy Colin the Caterpillar cake for the occasion. For many, the sweet treats and scary films are what make Halloween great, but for others, it is the chance to dress up and don extravagant costumes. If you need some inspiration this Halloween, here are the five most popular Halloween outfit ideas this year.

The Joker

Joaquin Phoenix has breathed new life into the Batman villain, delving deep into the descending madness behind the Joker.

Nearing $600 million (£450m) at the box office, Joker has proved a smash hit with fans.

So it’s no wonder dressing up as Joaquin’s cackling villain is a popular choice this Halloween.

In Joker, Joaquin’s character wears a red suit with an orange waistcoat and green shirt.

His hair is green, and his face painted with traditional clown make-up.

You can try and pull this outfit together from your wardrobe, or get a very close copy of the outfit here.

Harley Quinn

With the upcoming film Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn is another comic book character who has captured the attention of fans.

Her iconic look from Suicide Squad features red and blue shorts, red and blue jacket, and red baseball tee-shirt which reads: “Daddy’s Lil Monster”.

Her blonde hair is in ponytails, one dip-dyed pink and the other blue.

There are several different iterations of Harley Quinn’s look, including a more traditional nod to the comic book character.

For the Suicide Squad look, you can find one here.

Stranger Things characters

Another hit with Netflix viewers has been Stranger Things, with season three released earlier this year.

The iconic 1980s setting, music and outfits have sparked nostalgia for many and won fans in younger viewers.

Dressing up as Eleven, Dustin, Demogorgans, Jim Hopper and Joyce Byers are popular choices among fans.

Another option could be to dress as Robin and Steve in their Scoops Ahoy outfits.

For Eleven you can grab a costume here, and for a Demogorgon here.

Last-minute Halloween costume ideas

You can easily recreate the iconic Men In Black look with suits, ties, sunglasses – and,if you have one, a pug.

Or why not be a bat this year – all you have to do is upcycle an old black umbrella by cutting it in half and using black safety pins or hot glue to attach it to the arms of a black hoodie.

If you fancy being a skeleton this year, all you need is a white t-shirt. Cut out sections to create a ribcage illusion, and simply add some face paint.
