10 Amazing Halloween Costumes for 2017

Welp, they are selling halloween candy everywhere so I suppose it is time to think about costumes! I am actually impressed with the costumes that I have seen for 2017. Even if you don’t like something on this list, be something fun and different! This year don’t poke two holes in a sheet and call it a day, but go all out! Let me inspire you with these ideas.

1. Cher from Clueless

As if! This is such a rad idea as a costume because you can easily get into character by using fun 90’s lingo and let your inner “dumb blonde” emerge without being obnoxious. Maybe this isn’t the most original costume, but come on, it’s CLUELESS. I just couldn’t leave it out of the list.

2. Dreadful Nun Costume

Ok, I know that being a nun for Halloween isn’t exactly unique, BUT this one caught my eye because it actually freaks me the heck out. If you want to go scary this year, get this one. That is just creepy and terrifying. I love it!

3. Hipster Mermaid (Ariel)

Represent all things “Under the Sea” with this awesome Ariel costume. Well, it is more than just an Ariel costume, but it is a hipster version of Ariel which is oh so endearing. I love how the t-shirt has the cute shell graphics on it to represent the infamous purple shell bra that Ariel wears in “The Little Mermaid” (Which is the best Disney movie EVER!).

4. Cotton Candy Clown

Again, a clown costume? Yeah, not so original, but this one offers you endless opportunities to be creative! I can see myself dressing up as this and adding my own style to it. For example, I would make sure I had super glittery eyeshadow on, I’d spray glitter hair spray on my hair. Oh and did I mention sparkly shoes? You can add quirky hats, gloves, stockings, jewelry and even your own creative prop. This costume looks super fun to play with.

5. Shower Curtain Costume

Okay, this one is just hilarious, but also very unique. Never, have I ever seen anyone wear a shower curtain costume. This will give you the perfect excuse to walk around your neighborhood singing Justin Timberlake songs while making your rubber ducky squeal. I am SOLD!

6. Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)

I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, so this obviously has to be on the list. The gold accessories in this one really make the costume pop. Who wouldn’t want to strut around all day on Halloween, demanding people to “take a knee”

7. Richard Simmons

Oh yeah! It’s time to….SWEAT!! Get on your dancin’ shoes and short shorts and be the workout video star for this Halloween. You are sure to get a lot of giggles from those old enough to remember who he is. Have fun with this one and dazzle yourself up while you tell everyone about how opening jars of mayonaise used to be your only exercise.

8. Snow White Zombie

Dress up this year in something sweet and scary all at once – a zombie version of Snow White. Brilliant!

10. Teeloo from “The Fifth Element”

Remember the movie “The Fifth Element”? If so, then you remember the infamous white, strappy outfit that Teeloo wore. I thought she was the coolest girl ever when I was a kid. If you got the body to wear this, then DO IT!
