  1. 1Wolverine cosplay costume

    19

    Classic and well-loved, you can choose to be X-Men’s finest mutant, Wolverine, at your next costume party. You only need a pair of jeans, a wife-beater, and some nasty claws to complete your look. It’s that easy but the pay-off is quite high. One look and everyone will know who you are.

  1. 2Jon Snow costume

    Simple and suave, dress up as the bastard son from the North (or so we thought), Jon Snow. This cosplay costume idea is a perfect Halloween costume for those who can’t stand the cold. Well, yes, October is not that chilly but Jon’s fur cloak and knitted underdress will keep you warm. 

  2. 3Stormtrooper cosplay costume

    8

    The bucketheads from the Galactic Empire is another great cosplay costume idea. Everyone knows who the stormtroopers are. The best thing about dressing up as such is that if you ever meet someone donning the same costume, you could simply laugh it off and act like you’re from different battalions or something. No need to be awkward, the stormtroopers come in a huge number. 

  1. 4Harley Quinn cosplay costume

    3

    Another cosplay costume idea for the ladies is to dress up as Harley Quinn. Her popularity may not be as high as it was in 2016 but Harley Quinn’s still got the charms. You won’t have a hard time looking for her costume, it’s available in many places. Her iconic makeup is also easy to recreate and incorporating your own twist to it is also possible.

  2. 5Joker cosplay costume

    3

    You can dress up as Gotham’s not so happy clown, Joker, for your next costume party. With so many portrayals, you’ll never run out of Joker costume ideas. You can be the gangsta clown like Jared Leto, the clown prince of crime like Cesar Romero, or you can be the “Edgelord Joker” like Joaquin Phoenix. Aside from these movie versions, there are also many variations of Joker in the comics that you can look up. 

  3. 6Waldo costume

    3

    Be the life—or the hidden gem—of the party by dressing up as Waldo. What makes this cosplay costume idea great is that you can photobomb anyone’s snaps without them getting annoyed. It’s all fun in the name of “Where’s Waldo.”

  4. 7Elsa costume

    2

    If the cold doesn’t bother you, then perhaps you can be Queen Elsa the next time you need to cosplay. Not only will the kids flock to you, but you’ll also look dazzling in her sparkly blue dress. Aside from looking the part, you can amp up the fun by getting in character and belting out her hits Let it Go and Into the Unknown.

  5. 8Daenerys Targaryen costume

    1

    Stir up some trouble and go to a party as the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. I know her title is much longer than that but the point came across, right? Dany is a badass character with a not so complicated costume. You simply need a bleached hair (a wig, perhaps) and a black dress with a sash and you’re good to go.

    "What a phenomenal costume! This looked amazing and cost A LOT less than if I had bought this pre-made. It took some time to make it as I'm new to making costumes but everyone kept asking me how I did it! All it took was some cardboard, black clothes, mesh, and some plastic. The helmet was the hardest part but it also looks the most realistic!"

    "With Halloween coming up soon, the time is now to plan my costume for this year. Superhero movies are as big now as ever, so a villain themed costume seems like the way to go for me. Joker costumes are easy to pull off for those people who hate big and bulky clothing as it just requires makeup more than anything else."

    "I think this opens up a great idea. Especially if you want to cosplay as Game of Thrones character, but I think you can use this idea for any cosplay. It was interesting to know that you don't have to limit yourself to fabric stores to get materials for your cosplay costumes."
