Although September is here and we have to say goodbye to all the sunshine we’ve been blessed with this year, there is a bright side to the end of the summer period- well metaphorically speaking anyways and that is the arrival of the scariest day of the whole year… Halloween! It goes without saying Halloween is one of the funniest events to look forward to. Whether your into the more wholesome side of it in the form of trick or treating or going out to an epic Halloween party, there is one thing that everyone gets excited about- the costumes! With that being said, here is a compiled list of the top Halloween outfits everyone will surely be wearing this fall…
1. Ariana Grande in her ‘God is a Women’ music video
It is fair to say that Ariana’s makeup looks within her incredible ‘God is a Women’ music video was a complete work of art- thanks to artist Alexa Meade who used paint to create the makeup look on her face, neck and chest. This boldly aesthetic look was one of the most talked about scenes within her music video. It captured her posing like a real life goddess whilst being immersed within an ombre pool of purple, pink and blue water which seemed to mimic the galaxy. This highly beautiful symbol of feminine sexuality and female empowerment will surely be one of the top-billed costumes of 2018!
2. Donald Trump and The Queen during his visit to the UK
Everyone was talking about Trump’s visit to the UK where he had the privilege to meet the Queen! However, as we all know there are many protocols to follow when you meet her majesty, even if you are the president of the United States! Trump, to the world’s amusement, failed to follow one vital rule- to walk behind Queen Elizabeth II instead of trotting along in front of her! The Queen’s struggle to guide Trump in the highly difficult art of walking was definitely both painful and yet highly amusing to watch, making it the perfect joke costume to wear with your best friend! This is one of the top Halloween outfits!
3. The Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have witnessed the modern fairy tale that was Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding! With the help of a non-conventional, fiery priest Meghan and Harry tied the knot in front of an array of A- listers including David Beckham, Tom Hardy, and Serena Williams! The rags to riches story of Meghan Markle- now Duchess of Sussex, has proven to us all that in life anything can happen, making this the perfect costume to wear with your other half! This is one of the top Halloween outfits to wear this fall!
4. Yanny or Laurel?
Now this costume idea will definitely require some innovation and crafty DIY skills, maybe in the form of a t-shirt (or two)- if your opting for a couple’s costume! These two bizarre words created a major stir within the world of pop culture, so much so that it should have been taken up within the House of Commons! Whether you believe you heard ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’ it goes without saying that this is definitely a fun and quirky idea for a costume, one which most certainly will get some attention!
5. Tonya Harding
Last but not least, why not try to bring a little bit of Olympic history into the festivities of Halloween by dressing up as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding. The crazy conspiracy Harding became involved in, where her ex-husband attacked fellow Olympian Nancy Kerrigan on the ice while she was practising saw Harding being charged with hindering the prosecution and was ultimately banned for life from the US Figure Skating Association. The story of Harding clearly could not be forgotten as it was made into a biopic this year, starring Margot Robbie as Tonya herself! The success of the film at the box office, combined with the Oscar-winning portrayal of Allison Janney as LaVona Golden, makes this revival of the most catastrophic incident in figure skating history a costume everyone will get straight away!
