Believe it or not, Halloween is fast approaching! Get a head start on your costumes with this list based on what’s hot in pop culture now. Happy Halloween!
For your teenage son – Pennywise from IT
Of course Pennywise would be one of the top costumes this year! Pick up an already made costume or suggest ways to dress up as him for your son (red ballon, white and red makeup, fiery red hair). He should scare the living daylights out of fellow trick-or-treaters!
For your middle school daughter – Eleven from Stranger Things
If your daughter is a fan of the show, dressing up as Eleven is fairly easy. A pink baby doll dress, knee socks, Converse and a bit of red makeup to mimic a bloody nose. If you’re short on time or not too crafty, Spirit Halloween sells an Eleven costume for under $45, which is a pretty good deal nowadays when it comes to costume prices.
For your partner (female) – Daenerys of Game of Thrones
If your partner and you were huge fans of Game of Thrones this season, dressing up as Daenerys is always fun. Wear a flowing maxi dress, grab a long bright blonde wig and braid it and get a toy dragon to hold or perch on your shoulder. If you both are superfans, get your significant other to dress up as Jon Snow.
For your partner (male) – David S. Pumpkins
Tom Hanks’ bizarre SNL character caught on with a cult following of sorts. All you need is a ridiculously loud pumpkin print suit that many Halloween costume shops sell (Spencer’s has one for $59.99). Don’t forget to walk around shouting his catch phrases like “Any questions?”
For your pet – Lion from Amazon Commercial
We’ve all melted at the Amazon Prime lion commercial. Now you can dress your pet up just like the golden retriever turned lion in the commercial. Get ready to hear so many “awwws” as you take your furry friend to trick-or-treat with the family, or keep them behind to help pass out candy.
