Halloween – Cool Costume Ideas

There are certain types of Halloween costumes that are universally popular every year. There are also certain costumes that are popular because of an event, movie, TV show, or book that was published or was in theaters between Halloween of the previous year and the Halloween coming up. Let’s start with new and interesting Halloween costumes of 2010.

The biggest trend in Halloween costumes this year seems to be anything to do with Alice in Wonderland. This year’s movie of the same name, starring Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, will spur sales and rentals of costumes for the Mad Hatter, Alice, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Red Queen and the Queen of Hearts, the White Rabbit and the Cheshire cat. Shrek Forever After is also going to be the impetus for some great costumes this Halloween. Imagine going trick or treating as Shrek, Princess Fiona, Rapunzel, the Donkey or Puss N’ Boots!

How to Train Your Dragon is another movie that’s going to inspire plenty of Halloween 2010 costumes. Dragons and Vikings will certainly be wandering the street as darkness falls. Look for Terrible Terror, Monstrous Nightmare, Night Fury, Gronckle and Hideous Zippleback. Vikings hoisting a few at your Halloween party will include Snotlout, Fishlegs, Astrid, Hiccup, Stoick and Ruffnut and Tuffnut.

The movie Robin Hood will undoubtedly inspire lots of Robin Hoods, Maid Marions, King Richards and Friar Tucks. Toy Story 3 will have lots of kids dressing up for Halloween as Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Ken Doll, Peas –in-a-Pod and Lots-o’ Huggin’. There will be lots of Michael Jackson costumes this year as a result of his death in June of 2009, although he has inspired Halloween costumes for many years.

Then there are costumes that are popular every year. One of the best things about them is that they’re easy to assemble, easily recognizable, and usually not too expensive. They include a witch costume (probably the all time most popular costume), princess costumes, ballerina costumes, pirate costumes, cowboy costumes, superheroes of all sorts, and Ninja costumes. You can find parts of these costumes or the costumes themselves in most stores that carry Halloween costumes.

So get creative and get busy! Halloween is coming sooner than you think! Do you want to have a popular costume or something more creative? Take a look at the list above and make your decision.
