Elsa From Frozen

One Disney character that is sure to make an appearance at Halloween parties around the globe this year is the pretty Princess Elsa from the hit movie, Frozen. With her ice-white long hair, sparkling dress, and shimmering jewels it’s easy to see why kids and adults want to mimic her look.

The best way to dress as Elsa is to buy a ready-made costume which will include the dress, tiara, and accessories needed to recreate her outfit. If you choose to go the DIY route, you will need to buy a sequin dress (or go crazy with the glitter spray), a diamante tiara, and a blond long wig if you don’t already have similar locks. Complete the look by braiding your hair into a cute fishtail side braid.

The Joker

A firm favorite for many years that is set to be another iconic costume this year is the Joker. With his pale white face, smudged eye make-up, and eerie wide smile, the Joker will make an amazing costume for any male (or female) brave enough to pull it off.

You will need a purple suit, green shirt, tie, and a wig. As with the other costumes, it works out cheaper to purchase a full outfit from a fancy dress store rather than gathering all of the clothes and accessories together. The make-up will play a huge role in how successful you are at mimicking the joker, so start practicing early, get some help from a creative friend, or buy a Joker mask!

Captain Jack Sparrow

While the Pirates of the Caribbean films were released many years ago, Captain Jack Sparrow still makes for a fun Halloween outfit. Ladies can also do their own take on the Jack Sparrow look by putting together a pirate inspired costume.

Get in the pirate spirit with some tattered clothes, a white shirt, long-haired wig, and a pirate cap or pirate bandanna. Complete the look with some eyeliner, a plastic sword, and a faux parrot!

Witch

Witch outfits have been around for years and they never seem to go out of fashion. The great thing about a witch outfit is that you can customize them to suit your personality. Do you want to go as a scary and ugly witch? Then go all out by painting your face green, sticking on some warts, and wear a big witch’s nose. You can also go as a sexy witch with a cute dress, cape, and oversized hat. The choice is yours!
