Unicorn

Unicorn

From makeup to fashion to frappuccinos, unicorns are everywhere lately. Plus, this magical, mythical trend isn’t just popular in kids Halloween costumes. It’s a top Halloween costume across demographics, so put on a cute unicorn horn, and don’t be stingy with the sparkles!

Political

From the Constitutional Convention to modern day D.C., there are plenty of unique costumes in the political arena. Favorite men’s costumes include George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and good old Uncle Sam. Some creative women’s costumes include several famous First Ladies, Rosie the Riveter, and Lady Liberty. Plus, there are tons of funny political costumes!

Inflatables/Oversized

Go big, or go home...with no candy! Inflatable and oversized Halloween costumes make a huge impression on trick-or-treaters, party guests, and anyone you meet on Halloween. Also, funny costumes like pick-me-up styles and towering characters are some of the top trends for Halloween!

Princess

Has there ever been a year where princess outfits weren’t among the top Halloween costumes? This gorgeous girls’ and women’s costume is the perfect excuse to wear a dress and be a little bossy. Princess gowns are one of the best costumes — and the most versatile! Spanning from video game icons to Disney characters to historical figures, the princess outfit is a top 10 costume for a reason.

Animals

Looking for interesting family costumes? Check out the animal kingdom! From black cats to lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), there are so many unique costumes available. One of our favorites is the beekeeper and bees family costume! Its quirky adult Halloween costumes include a beekeeper and a big honeycomb. Then, the kids’ Halloween costumes are cute little honeybees!

Ninja

Ninja

Feeling clever, powerful, and just a bit sneaky? A ninja outfit is one of the best women’s and men’s costumes if you want to show us your moves this year! Go for a traditional black cloth costume, or try out all sorts of cool armor. You can even make a last-minute costume at home!

Mermaid

Do you love the ocean? An under-the-sea costume may be the perfect choice for this Halloween. Transform yourself into a lovely mermaid with a scaled skirt, a flowing wig, and adorable seaside accessories. Just one question: Are you an innocent maiden, a sultry siren, or something in between?

Witch

This devilish costume has definitely put a spell on Halloween celebrants! After all, what’s not to love about a wicked hat, a feline friend, and a flying broomstick? A coven of witches can also be a cute, cool, or downright creepy group Halloween costume idea!
