We all love a bit of fancy dress. Go on, admit it. Halloween is a time when we can dress up as our beloved icons from popular culture – be that a ghoulish beast, video game character or favorite superhero. Dressing up really does add an extra edge to an evening, whether that is having a party at a friend’s house or out in a club, desperately trying to hold off drunken strangers from stealing a vital part of your costume. Hands off, this is my fez!
Here are some top costume ideas to twist around your favorite superhero and villain costumes in order to make every Halloween as spine-chillingly scary as possible:
Go DC This Halloween
The superhero movie boom has seen more and more people clambering to dress up as their favorite Marvel and DC characters every Halloween. Who could forget that year when it was impossible to move without bumping into at least three Jokers on every street?! I don’t even want to even imagine the amount of vocal chord damage imitating Christian Bale’s gravely bat-voice all over the world has caused – it’s hard enough to hear people over blaring music as it is!
If you’re going out as a couple, why not consider going as the chaotic pair that is the Joker and his former nurse turned murdering partner-in-crime Harley Quinn? A match made in heaven, or rather hell. Rather apt for such a spooky night.
Make Mine Marvel (Zombies)
But why not go for something a bit different? Creatures of the night and comics are certainly not strangers to one another; Marvel released their first of many Marvel Zombies issues back in 2005. Superheroes on their own are cool. Zombies on their own are cool. Combine the two and you’re half way to wearing the coolest Halloween costume you will ever think of.
With the multi-million success of The Avengers it is inevitable that there will be a fair few Iron Men, Hulks, Thors, Black Widows, Lokis, and Captain Americas roaming the streets, but there probably won’t be many zombie versions around. Consider applying your typical zombie make up and a splash of fake blood all over your Avengers costume.
For those dressed as the golden avenger, Iron Man, it will be sure to make a few people jump when you remove the mask to reveal a decaying zombie face! If you’re more a God of Thunder kind of guy, there are already plenty of red capes available, although the majority of people naturally use them for vampires rather than Asgardians.
