Halloween Costume Ideas for Women


So, you’ve got a Halloween party coming up and have no clue what to wear. You could visit your local costume shop–but lets face it. Most pre-made costumes are really boring and show little originality. There’s the sexy nurse, the sexy witch…. when did Halloween become all about short skirts and boobs? No, you definitely want something a little more creative than that. That’s where we come in.

Below you will find the list of our favorite Halloween costume ideas for women. More costumes are being added all the time, so feel free to contact us and let us know your awesome idea.

Carly Rae Jepsen Costume

If you don’t have Carly’s long, straight hair with eyebrow length bangs, try wearing a wig. Your most important accessory, however, will be a telephone receiver.

Princess Merida Costume

If you happen to have curly red hair this costume will be a piece of cake. If not, well, there’s a wig for that.

Ride the wave to fame by dressing as Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson’s character from the blockbuster film The Avengers.

Queen Elizabeth Costume

Putting together a Queen Elizabeth costume is not all that difficult. The trickiest part may be finding a well-behaved corgi to accompany you for the evening.

Pan Am Stewardess Costume

Just when it seemed that stewardess mystique was dead–killed by outlawing discrimination, cutting off free drinks and too many air marshals–here comes ABC to bring it back. If you would like to revisit the time before disabling the lavatory smoke detector carried a $25,000 fine, come to your Halloween party this year dressed in a Pan Am stewardess costume!

Black Swan Halloween Costume

You need a costume that expresses your unnatural relationship with your mother, your dedication to frenemies and your desire to upstage Winona Ryder. No, this doesn’t involve shoplifting. Instead, you must show your dark side by creating and wearing a Black Swan Halloween costume based on Natalie Portman’s character from the movie.

Lady Gaga Edge of Glory Costume

Lady Gaga Edge of Glory Costume

You have had a fetish for fire escapes since playing Maria in “West Side Story” and you’re wondering how to incorporate your love of heights into a costume. As always, Lady Gaga is the answer. Dressing Gaga-style for Halloween this year and recreating her “Edge of Glory” video can bring you fame and fortune, or at least a two-tone wig. Please pour out a little of your drink for fallen E Street Band member Clarence Clemens, who provided the sax for this song, before dressing.

 Sucker Punch Babydoll Halloween Costume

Sucker Punch, in my opinion, was one of the most thrilling movies of 2011. The film’s dark overtones give it an eerie, Halloween-esque feel, even though it’s not truly a Halloween movie. So, this costume is a natural fit for anyone interested in recreating the main character’s signature look. Babydoll, as played by the up and coming Emily Browning, battles through her fantasy world in a classic heroine outfit that would fit right into any Halloween party.

Katy Perry Last Friday Night Costume

There’s always that one kid with the super-conservative Christian parents who goes wild later on. In the celebrity world, that’s Katy Perry. First she kissed a girl, and now she woke up with a chicken and jello shots after last Friday night. You can pay tribute to either your parents’ crushed dreams or just the way you spent last weekend by wearing Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night outfit for Halloween this year.

Daenerys Targaryen Costume

Nerds love hot girls who look like elves. Time, movies and anime have borne out this hypothesis. If you are the lucky, lucky hot girl who is attracted to nerds, you can take your five dates to the Halloween party dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. Though her name sounds like a member of the Armenian diaspora, this girl is definitely not from California.


 A Halloween Tribute to Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

Everyone dreams of being remembered after they die, but not many people are remembered for their bee-hive hairdo and unwillingness to go to rehab. Pay tribute to a rock star who left the world way too early by hitting the town this Halloween in an Amy Winehouse costume!


Lady Gaga’s “Judas” Costume

Lady Gaga Judas Costume

Have you ever wished that the Bible was more like the musical “Grease”? So has Lady Gaga. In her new “Judas” video, she’s partnered with standup guy Jesus… but she has the hots for Judas. It only makes sense: Judas has thirty pieces of silver AND he’s confident enough to kiss another man on the cheek.

Lady Gaga Born This Way Skeleton Costume

The first time I saw Lady Gaga’s video for Born This Way the thing that immediately popped into my mind was….what a freakin’ perfect costume idea!

And no, I’m not talking about the bra and panties she dances around in throughout most of the video. I’m talking about the “skeleton in a tuxedo” outfit she dons at the very end.
