Halloween is one of the most fun and interesting times of the year. You get to be the most creative version of yourself, putting your interests on full display! It does not matter if you are a fan of movies, music, superheroes, video games, or just celebrities, as there is always a perfect Halloween costume for you! With the beautiful season just around the corner, here are the best pop culture-inspired Halloween costumes for 2019!
Ashe – Overwatch
Overwatch has quickly become one of the most popular played games on the planet, boasting over 40 million regular users. The game hosts a wide variety of playable characters, all with different characteristics, styles, and fashion sense. Ashe is the one that stands out from the bunch, as she is the very cool leader of a biker gang and a former cowgirl.
For this costume, you will need a cowgirl hat, a black leather jacket, preferably dying your hair white, a white rolled-up shirt, and a red tie. Bonus points for having a prop Ashe-type shotgun. Dressing up as her for Halloween will definitely turn eyes, and will cause everyone around you to bash you with compliments all night long!
Mario – Super Mario Brothers
No matter where you are in the world, everyone knows the Super Mario Brothers. Mario and Luigi are beloved everywhere, and it will certainly be no different if you decide to dress up as the more iconic of the duo, Mario.
Dressing up as Mario works extremely well whether you are a guy or girl, and will wow people all through the Halloween night. You have quite a bit of wiggle room in terms of how you wear the costume. For girls, the most popular way is wearing a red crop top and short blue pants that double as suspenders. To finish off the look, you just need a red hat with the famous “M” smack in the middle of it.
Jack Sparrow – Pirates Of The Carribean
Up next is everybody’s favorite drunk Captain, in Jack Sparrow. Pirates of the Carribean is one of the most treasured movie franchises ever made, and you dress up as the iconic Pirate, Jack Sparrow, will truly bring that to life. He has a certain sense of swag, and you will be putting that on full display when you put this costume to good use! You will look so good, even strangers will compliment you on how great your outfit is! Luckily with this outfit, you have many chances to make it unique and add your own personal touch.
Of course, you will need his famous black monkey jacket with a long shirt. To go the extra mile, get an extremely long wig and braid it just like Jack Sparrow himself does. You will also need a red bandana and some nice pirate boots. From there, your imagination is the limit! You can add some insightful face paint (like a skull), add his uniquely done belt, or anything else you feel would complete the look!
Willy Wonka – Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka is such an iconic character who is ultimately timeless. He is the eccentric owner of the Wonka Chocolate Factory, most famous for being where Charlie (the main character of the story) experienced his first intense chocolate factory fantasy. If you want your love of chocolate to be known by many, take on this interesting and beautiful looking costume! Everyone loves chocolate, and even more people love Willy Wonka, so it is definitely a win-win situation here.
For the outfit, you will need his famous purple suit, purple monkey suit jacket, and Willy’s staple brown hat. If you want to do even more, you can wear his yellow ribbon as a bow-tie! If you are part of a couple and want to knock the outfit game out of the park, your partner can dress as Oompa Loompa, like you see the beautiful couple below! All night you both will be showered with praises and compliments, so just be prepared for that!
Red Hood – DC Comics
Last, but far from being the least, is Red Hood. While Red Hood is one of the less-known characters from the DC Universe, he comes from a line of incredibly popular ones. Red Hood is the name of former Robin (Batman’s sidekick), Jason Todd. He is a highly trained assassin and a classy anti-hero. Dressing up as him for Halloween will not only make you feel great, but you will look sexy as hell. Red hood’s outfit is not the most complicated, but he certainly has a great sense of fashion when it comes down to it.
Take a look at how amazing Jensen Ackles looks as he was Red Hood last Halloween! You have plenty of wiggle room when it comes to making your costume, just as how he made his outfit uniquely his. You would ideally want to wear Red Hood’s staple brown leather jacket, with another jacket inside. You would also need some leather gloves and leather black pants. Lastly, you want to have a shirt with the Red Hood symbol on it (Jensen had it zipped up in this photo).
From here, you can do whatever you want! You can get the Red Hood helmet, or wear a face mask like Jensen Ackles (he did both). Your belt is your choice, and you can carry Red Hood-esque weapons if you like (such as nunchucks, small prop guns, etc). When pulled off correctly, this is one of the most badass costume ideas you can possibly have, and everyone will be wowed by your creativity!
