My personal favorites from the last few years: Proper Young Lady, complete with leather bound “books” balanced my head and penny loafers; Mother Nature with butterflies, birds, leaves, and glitter all over and in my hair (inspired from Martha Stewart’s “Grey Lady” costume); and Medusa, a sheer black toga over leggings and a men’s long-sleeve black tee where i split the sleeves on the outside and cut the neckline to match the toga and decorated everything with gold and bronze paints, rope belts, decorated gladiator sandals, and snakes glued to hair clips that slithered through and stood up in my hair.
According to historical accounts, Cleopatra Queen of the Nile pretty much invented sex appeal. So, we think it makes a lot of sense that we’re still dressing like her more than 2000 years later! We have a huge selection of Cleopatra costumes, and we’ve got plenty of Pharaoh costumes to get guys in on the fun, too. With alluring designs that show just the right amount of skin, we’re sure an Egyptian theme this Halloween is going to be sizzling hot!
You and your partner are the coolest/funniest/most photogenic pair. You know it's true, and the Instagram likes just about prove it! When Halloween hits, however, you both struggle to think of a clever couples Halloween costume that is just as awesome as you are. Or even if you come up with a few fun ideas, by year three or four of dressing up together, you're probably in desperate need of some inspiration. Rather than settling for another boring look (Mickey and Minnie, for example), switch things up with one of these creative — dare we say, genius — couples' Halloween costume ideas.
Upcycle that black umbrella into a seriously impressive bat costume. Just cut it in half and then use black safety pins or hot glue to attach it to the arms of a black hoodie. Use black electrical tape to fasten the hinges of the metal umbrella pieces as needed to help them properly fold. Create ears with foam core and feathers for a little extra texture.
Karol Bartoszynski has been many of the characters from the Mad Max movies. He became a fan as a teenager, and over the next twenty years turned his enthusiasm for Mad Max into a career as a costume designer, and now organizes Mad Max fan gatherings and re-enactments. Bartoszynski runs the fan site Mad Max Costumes, where you can draw plenty of inspiration.  Imagine showing up looking like this at your local Halloween party!

Graphic designer Harrison Krix made a costume of the character Big Daddy from the video game Bioshock. This is a work of a serious propmaster. It took seven weeks of sculpting with foam, cardboard, and fiberglass. The finished product, complete with a working drill arm, is a work of art. The post includes many more pictures and a couple of videos of the drill arm in action.

Fans of the TV show The Walking Dead will recognize the Governor and his undead daughter. Redditor TriforceKing and his sister wore this last Halloween. It helped that he already resembled the actor David Morrissey somewhat. A few people pointed out that the Governor didn’t lose his eye until after his daughter was gone, but who cares? It’s Halloween!

As an etsy seller, I personally don’t think it’s unethical to list an item in any blog post (even a DIY one,) as long as the link takes you back to the item listing, and/or the creator is given credit. This one just happens to have been deactivated, maybe because the seller did it, or it’s possible etsy did. Either way, even if the item was copyrighted, someone crafty could make something similar for personal use (but, from what I’ve seen, not of the same quality unless they’re experienced with printing on fabrics!) Most sellers are up on their SEO and google stats, and it appears this one’s sales haven’t been hurt by their item being posted all over the web. 😉

There's nothing worse than someone asking you, "What are you supposed to be?" And apparently we’re not alone in our love for dressing up: Americans spent more than $3 billion on costumes last year.

The character Cherry Darling from the movie Planet Terror startled folks when they saw that one of her legs was a machine gun. Then it inspired some women to recreate the scene. Now, if you are a beautiful amputee like Lacey Henderson, who gained note as a college cheerleader a few years ago, you can make hay by cosplaying the character at fan events. Henderson has a webpage with instructions for those who aren't amputees on how to recreate the Cherry Darling look, and an annual competition is held for the best machine-gun-leg costume.
