Trick or Treat! How to recreate some of the most famous movie characters with style!
With Halloween approaching fast, there are dozens of things that everyone rushing to arrange and enjoy. From scary movies, pumpkin carving, delicious candy, Halloween parties, and, of course, costumes! Undoubtedly the most important decision of the holiday is choosing who or what to dress up as for Halloween and with so many great options it can be hard to choose the perfect costume.
Movies have always been a great source of inspiration for decades when it comes to choosing a Halloween outfit. Thousands of people choose to wear their favourite movie character’s outfit and, in most cases, it looks amazing! The hottest options in recent years have been superhero outfits, especially Harley Quinn, which has probably been worn by half the nation. But in the last couple of years, the return of old-fashioned, heroin movie characters have made a comeback and everyone is sporting their favourite movie characters regardless of the genre.
There are several great films that could serve as inspiration for great costumes. That is why we have researched and found the best (in our opinion) movie characters that you could easily recreate for this Halloween.
First, let’s have a look at some of the hottest movie character movies. Starting with the beautiful Morticia Addams, a beloved character that has stood the test of time and has been brought to life by some of the greatest actresses such as Anjelica Huston and most recently Catherine Zeta-Jones, who was cast in Tim Burton’s latest series, Wednesday, which has aired on Netflix.
Morticia’s character is known for her characteristic long black hair, red lipstick and of course her sexy style which consists of long maxi, and tight-fitting black gowns that showcase her stunning figure while giving gothic and seductive vibes.
Another loved character who has also appeared in the last few years in a major franchise is none other than the timeless Vampire! Back in 2010 everyone wanted to be a vampire thanks to the popular movies and series that became a hot trend when it came to vampires and werewolves. From Twilight to the 90s classic Bram Stoker’s Dracula, vampires are a classic when it comes to Halloween costumes.
A vampire costume is seductive and elegant. In every movie, we have seen the female vampires wear long gown with a mermaid-style attire that will attract humans. With a sequin design like the Godiva starburst dress above, you are bound to make everyone fall in love with your outfit. Add fake fangs and a sexy eye mask and you are set to be the hottest vampire in the room.
This year’s hottest movie that rocked the box office was none other than The Batman featuring Robert Pattinson in the role of batman and Zoe Kravitz as the new Cat woman. It will be no surprise that her stunning cat outfits, along with the unique cat woman outfits from previous cat women will be a main source of inspiration to many women this Halloween. If you are one of those women who can’t wait to get your cat on, then we got the outfit for you!
A catsuit must be sophisticated and glamorous, just like a cat! You must walk and have everyone look at you amazed by your beauty and mysteriousness. That is what this Goddiva jumpsuit is for. It oozes class and luxury and it will make you feel like the goddess you are.
For those who prefer to go as their favourite actress rather than a character, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Look like one of Hollywood’s greatest stars, the wonderful Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn's style has influenced millions of women for decades and of course, she will be a major influence this Halloween also. Especially since the movie, Blonde made its debut on Netflix about the life of the superstar which received mixed reviews.
Marilyn loved wearing figure-fitting bodice-styled dresses with sequin fabric that would showcase her amazing curves and make her shine like the star she was. The more sparkly the better was a trend that was hot in the 40s and 50s Hollywood era. Add a 30s-style mask and look like the absolute movie star.
There are endless designs to choose from that can resemble your favourite movie characters while looking stylish and glamorous for any Halloween event.
Costumes can be extremely elaborate or super simple and stand out at any party. A Halloween costume can be based on a classic character or inspired by multiple female heroines. This stunning sequin bodice design and feathered mask give Cruella De Ville vibes.
You can always improvise with a stunning dress like this beautiful tassel split maxi dress that will make you fit right in at any Halloween event with this luxurious and elegant gown. With its all-over sequin embroidery and tassel details on the hem and sleeves, you will shine in the entire room as you dance all night.
