Halloween Costumes Inspired by This Year’s Iconic Moments

With Halloween drawing only closer and closer by, looking for the perfect costume becomes more of a challenging task. Of course, you’ll want to be unique and look more fun and interesting than last year(because we all know you’re only better than your last Halloween costume, right?) so you wearing the same dress twice in a row is just not acceptable (unless that’s your signature Halloween look or something). For those of you out there who still haven’t got a look to sport this year, check out these Halloween costumes inspired by this year’s inconic moments, especially in pop culture.


  • Maleficent – who could ever forget the movie that took the box office by storm that is Maleficent? Angelina Jolie has yet again proven that she is a versatile actress, taking on the role of Disney’s fiercest villain. If you’re planning on going as Maleficent to this year’s Halloween party, start mastering the art of contouring now as the makeup aspect of this look is a huge part of what makes it so iconic (next to the costume, that is).

  • Angelina Jolie in her wedding dress – and while we’re in the topic of getting inspired by Angelina Jolie for Halloween, how about going as the Maleficent star in her ever so controversial wedding dress? Jolie, who recently married long time partner Brad Pitt, wore a dress with her children’s doodles and drawings embroidered on it which sparked mixed reactions from people around the world, especially women. Some though it ruined the beautiful Versace dress while others thought it was a very unique way to show how much she loved her children and their family.

  • Elsa / Anna from Frozen – yet another Disney-inspired costume idea comes from the movie Frozen. Take your pick between ice queen Elsa or cute and bubbly Anna and start scouting for dresses now! Of course, you can always dress up as Olaf if you’re looking for something goofy. Maybe Sven would even make a great look, then. Or the trolls?

  • Blood drenched Behati Prinsloo – Maroon 5 lead vocalist and hottie Adam Levine recently released a music video called ‘Animals’ with his wife, Behati Prinsloo and both of them were covered in blood in it so if you’re looking for something gore yet sexy and something you and your guy could dress up as this Halloween, this would make a really awesome look.

  • Anastasia Steele, bondage style – though the movie is yet to be released, I’m pretty sure you already have your own picture of how Anastasia Steele would look like when in BDSM mode so why not translate that into a Halloween costume?
