In each of their respective storylines on Game of Thrones, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen have made quite a mark when it comes to their sex appeal. Well, “Fire and Ice” is officially a thing now, so it’s as good of a time as ever to choose one of these characters to go as! We, of course, have the adult costume styles to get you started. Our Dark Northern King Costume will have you looking the part of the King in the North, and of course, our famed Dragon Queen Costume will transform any lady into the mother of dragons.
There’s a new era of Star Wars movies for today’s kids, but that doesn’t mean you’ve forgotten about the classic Star Wars movies! Whether you prefer new or vintage Star Wars action or hold them both in high regard, it’s hard to find a more iconic costume style than dressing as Princess Leia with her hooded gown from A New Hope. For couples Halloween costumes, pair her up with a Stormtrooper or Han Solo, and you’ll be ready to hit the big costume party!
Your Halloween fun has evolved over the years, and while candy and trick-or-treating were great back in the day, now you’re all grown-up and ready show it off. And, frankly, you want to look good doing it! We don’t think there’s anything wrong with showing off a little sex appeal, and we’ve got styles for men and women that are sure to have you feeling confident in character. These sexy styles are great for couples or for any individual who’d like to leave a big impression on their fellow party-goers.
Here at BestProducts.com, we start planning our Halloween costumes early. Like, really early. We wouldn't dare be that person looking for a last-minute costume — and neither should you. 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.

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.
Tank Girl breakdown: shirt – mine, target painted on w/acrylics; shorts – mine, vintage; vest – thrifted, and I added patches and doodads; socks – hub’s and thrifted rainbow toe socks (one cut off as an arm warmer); goggles – dollar store; belt & holsters – my husband’s; weapons – dollar stores (I painted the bright orange gun); boots – mine; bat – thrifted kid’s plastic bat that I covered in contact paper and athletic tape. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to add wounds and bruises, but I did add some bandages. 🙂

I made my ear “fins” from floral wire and tulle, and meticulously hand sewed sequins. I wore a nude tank top and pinned my hand sewn shells on. Then I sewed a fin, using a skirt as a pattern, and added tulle fins (again, meticulously hand sequined.) I was covered in glitter and blue and green makeup, and found that delightfully tacky wig at Goodwill. Don’t worry – it was new and unused!

Classic, regal and... who are we kidding? Toga! Toga! Toga! Nothing quite sparks the party spirit like the look of the ancient Greeks. Made famous by fraternity houses, the toga has a lot of things going for it. The look is quick and simple, with a whole plethora of easy ways to accessorize. If you want to go all out, you can grab some sandals and gold wreath crowns to look like Greek royalty, or you can simply toss on the toga costume. And all it takes to get the party started while wearing this costume style is to shout the word "Toga!" and repeat ad nauseam.
