Halloween Costume Ideas
There are plenty of good reasons to dress up in costume. There's dress-up play, cosplay conventions, and of course Halloween! We happen to think it's a pretty unique and powerful sort of experience. It allows you to dress up as how you see yourself on the inside! Do you feel like a superhero that's just never been given the chance to shine? Then you can wear one of our Avengers-themed costumes. Are you a mild-mannered introvert with a wild streak? Then wearing a bold and daring costume can be a great way to express yourself! Costumes give you and your friends ways to express yourselves. They give you a way to share the characters you love with others. We think that's fun and we're the company that's all about FUN in capital letters! All it takes is a simple costume and that fun can begin! That's why we believe in the power of costumes…and it's why we carry a TON of different options for people with all sorts of interests!
The tough part about wearing a costume is actually choosing which one to get! With options from your favorite movies and some fantastic classic options, just selecting the one that's right for you might seem a little daunting. We're here to help you figure it out! This guide will go through some of our favorite picks as well as some great Halloween costume ideas for groups, couples, and more!
Group Costume Ideas
Costumes are tons of fun solo, but sometimes bringing friends along for the ride can be a great way to make an unforgettable experience! Of course, group costumes come in many different forms. Do you plan on heading out with all of your friends for an epic party, or are you trying to coordinate the family together for the most adorable fall family photo of all time? Maybe you just want something that you can wear for your first couples' Halloween date! Well, we've got some great options for anyone looking to coordinate a group costume.
Group Halloween Costumes
The trick to finding a great group costume is choosing something that has a strong theme but also allows for customization options. After all, each person will want to share a bit of their personality with their costume choice. You also want something that has a unified look. We have a few group costume ideas that do a great job of striking that balance. Grease can be an easy choice since it provides a simple uniform for both men and women, but our favorite choice for group costumes has to be the Care Bears! The 80s cartoon has so many characters to choose from and a variety of colorful styles, so everyone can be a different character who represents their personality, while still keeping the Care Bears theme.
Couples Halloween Costumes
One of the most exciting things during a relationship is when you get to select a unique couples' costume! It can be a little tough to choose a theme that both partners agree on, but we think classic is the way to go. Our selection of retro costumes will give you a strong theme to wear together, while still giving each person a lot of customizability to their look. The 20s are an awesome place to start if you want something classy. If you're more into loud and audacious colors, then an 80s couples costume can be another cool option.
Family Halloween Costumes
What about a whole family? Well, this is one of our favorite types of groups when it comes to costumes! Family Halloween costumes are a great conversation starter at costumes parties, and you can even create some pretty memorable family photos when everyone is dressed up in a coordinated look! Of course, the Incredibles lends itself pretty well for family photos, and it's remained one of our favorite choices since the first movie came out in 2004. Other Disney movies inspire family costume themes, as does Marvel's Avengers. It's really all about finding a group choice that fits the family attitude!
Halloween Costumes for Women
Of course, sometimes, you just need to indulge in your own costume ideas. Even when heading out with friends or family, you can't beat a costume that helps you showcase your unique personality! We think it's essential to express yourself, which is why we carry so many different Halloween costumes, with an exceptionally large selection for women. Everyone should be able to get a look that suits them, not only in personality but in style and body shape! It's all about choosing something that fits the mood and tone you want, so you can feel confident while heading out for a good time. We'll give you a couple of ideas to get those gears turning in your head!
Cute Halloween Costumes for Women
When in doubt, choose cute! It's a mantra that has served us pretty well in past Halloweens and we figure, why mess with a good thing? Now, cute can mean a lot of different things when it comes to costumes. You could slip into one of our cute and comfortable animal kigurumi costumes, for one. Or you could pick our costumes inspired by the movie A League of Their Own, which are a more "traditional" style of cute. Either way, you'll be feeling confident when you head to your next costume party.
Sexy Halloween Costumes for Women
Perhaps you want to go a little beyond cute. Perhaps you want to express your dangerous side! That's when it's time to choose a sexy Halloween costume.

All of our sexy costumes should help you achieve a confident look for any occasion!
Women's Plus Size Costumes

Halloween costumes for girls have come a long way! Now, your little girl can choose to be a superhero like Wonder Woman, an astronaut, or whatever her heart desires! We think it's pretty awesome that little girls have more choices and a new kind of attitude. Even the attitude of Disney princesses, which have always been a pretty popular choice for girls, has changed. The determined sisters from the Frozen movies are a great option for any girl who wants to be just like the heroic characters.
Boys’ Halloween Costumes
When it comes to costumes for boys, it always seems to come down to two categories! Boys either want to dress up as characters from their favorite movies or they want to dress up as the scariest thing in the neighborhood! The great news is that we have some pretty awesome choices for both types of kids! If your child wants to become their favorite superhero from their favorite cartoon, we have Batman and Robin and some cool options from the Marvel universe too!
