Grown Up Halloween Costumes
Posted by Mark Collins on
Whether you’re gearing up for Halloween, throwing some sort of costume-themed party, or heading to your latest large gathering like Comic-Con, you might be looking to shake up the normal routine and come up with something amazing.
Sure, you could go the Wonder Woman Costume route, the Spiderman Costume route, or the Harry Potter Costume route, but maybe you’re headed to a grown-up party or gathering and you’d like to go with something different.
First, Consider the Event
If you’re looking into showcasing a more grown-up adult Halloween costume, it’s a good idea to make sure that you are headed to an adult costume party. If you’re looking at gatherings for all ages, it’s important to dress accordingly. For instance, if you dress as your favorite character from the movie Pulp Fiction at a party for all ages, you might end up confusing more people than you impress.
More than likely the younger people at the party might be scratching their heads trying to guess who or what you dressed as.
If you end up dressing in a pirate costume, this is going to be a far more universal choice. You can even go the extra mile and put some personal touches on your costume. You can also dress as a specific pirate, like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Additional popular kids Halloween costumes include superhero costumes. You can pretty much bet that all of the most popular superheroes will be covered, such as Superman and Batman, so you can go with a supervillain costume to stand out and have more fun interactions with the other partygoers.
Adult Costume Options
If you’re 100% sure that this is going to be more of an adult costume party, you will be free to choose just about any costume you like. If you’re planning on going to a Great Gatsby-style get-together, it’s a good idea to break out your best tuxedo or your 1920s-style flapper dress and headwear.
At an adult party, your choices will broaden. You can choose costumes based on popular culture contributions from the 1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and more. Star Wars, the Alien franchise, Jaws, and Indiana Jones all have memorable characters that would make suitable costumes for just about anyone.
If you insist on heading into the comic book realm, a Harley Quinn Costume is suitable for an adult costume party since she is a darker character. The Joker is a character that you can pull off at either an adult party or a kid's party. If you’re going to an all-ages party, you might want to opt for the more classic version of Joker, with bright colors and bright green hair. At a more adult gathering, you can opt for the version of Joker brought forth by Heath Ledger, which is certainly on the darker and more adult side.
Sexy Costume Options
At costume-themed gatherings for adults, you are more likely to see sexy costumes. You can dress up as a sexy doctor or nurse, which is a common costume at adult parties. You can also choose sexy Roman or Greek God or Goddess costumes, cowboy and cowgirl costumes, or even more classic options like the sexy pirate costume.
If you’re absolutely certain that no children are going to be at the gathering, you can also mix it up when it comes to popular superhero costumes and put a sexy spin on these popular options. Dress as a sexy Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Superman, or Batman.
