Unique Halloween Costumes for Adults That No One Else Will Think Of

At any Halloween party or trick-or-treat outing, it's a given that certain Halloween costumes will be spotted. You're bound to run into people wearing Pink Ladies costumes, Dr. Seuss outfits, Mickey suits and Wizard of Oz costumes. However, if you're looking to be different from the plethora of common Halloween costumes, you might want to take a peek at this list of unique costumes. How many times have you seen a dude riding an inflatable ostrich? What about a Zoltar Speaks booth? We made sure to include the weird, the wacky, the lesser-known characters and other oddities that will have people saying "why didn't I think of that?"

Funny costumes are in the eye of the beholder. Still, it's hard to go wrong if you pick a character from a comedy movie such as Austin Powers. Movies also have silly moments, like the time when Regina had her shirt sabotaged in Mean Girls, or when Frenchy accidentally dyed her hair pink and had a visit from her guardian angel about going back to school to be a stenographer. Other Halloween costumes are silly because they have strange shapes or offbeat subjects like a guy riding an inflatable ostrich or a pea pod costume. You don't necessarily have to wear a crude adult costume to be funny.

You're guaranteed to run across a few sexy occupational costumes and sultry Disney villains while you're on your Halloween rounds. However, these unique sexy costumes for adults present a few choices that were probably not the first to come to mind. Niche superheroes like Psylocke and She-Hulk will allow you to show off your nerd cred as well as a little skin, while some other typically male characters can seem like unusual sexy costume ideas. (Nothing screams "hottie" like a charred Dream Demon with knives on your fingertips, right?) Other women's sexy costumes are just plain weird or downright silly, but you get the license to be yourself for a night, so you do you.

Scary costumes for Halloween are a staple, but you can get some unique offerings if you know where to look. Character costumes will take you a long way. For example, Mrs. Lovett, the witch king of Angmar and Harry Potter's dementors are some solid choices. You can also find unusual offerings of otherwise basic costume choices. If you like vampires, why not try a vampire costume that looks like she could be Marie Antoinette? Leave the classic sheet ghost with eye holes behind for a creepy, tattered ghost or something reminiscent of La Llorona. You can even find alternatives to basic witches by finding a hag or a creepy sorceress costume.

It's time to break out the pastels and the rainbow colors because we have a bunch of cute and colorful costume selections for adults. Cartoon characters are often colorful and adorable, and they make great Halloween costumes! Nostalgia costumes like Luna, Care Bears, the Pink Panther and Rainbow Brite are bound to get their corresponding theme songs stuck in other partygoers' heads. (The Pink Panther Theme is already creeping into our brains as we speak.) Other characters make cute costume ideas like Raggedy Andy, Mavis and Toothless!

Classic Wolverine CostumeBlack CanaryNascar Chase EliottStar Wars Women's Imperial OfficerPrincess Bride Inigo Montoya

Get ready for heroes and plenty of girl power costumes! Characters like superheroes, race car drivers, swordsmen and Vikings are the definition of cool. If you want to be unique, look for specific characters that could use a little more of the limelight. Superhero costumes are always popular, and you're bound to see plenty of Wonder Woman and Batman costumes. Try Black Canary or perhaps comic book Wolverine instead! You can use this tactic with other franchises, too. Star Wars is insanely popular, but you'll probably be the only Imperial Officer in a sea of Stormtroopers and Jedi costumes.

There are many ways to have a creative costume. Some adult Halloween costumes give you the freedom to play with makeup for unique looks, such as a gender-bent Frankenstein costume or a spooky nun outfit. Others can be original simply because they're different. Perhaps you tried dressing as a minor character from a movie or TV series. Whatever the case may be, it's great to be unique! (Is there anything more embarrassing than being the third Waldo at the office party?)

Fantasy costumes often bring to mind creatures like unicorns, dragons and mermaids. If you're in the market for something that's still fantasy without being cliché, you can find unique twists on typical fantasy costumes for adults such as a three-headed dragon costume or a cute and fully-sequined unicorn romper. Characters like Cthulhu, Kira and Sarah from Labyrinth are also great choices! If you know what you're looking for, there are quite a few options for unique fantasy costumes.
