6 Halloween Costume Ideas Inspired By Hollywood

Hollywood continues to make one great film after another. Some have become cult classics whereas others are incredibly popular around the world. If someone wants to dress up at Halloween as their favorite character from the silver screen, there are plenty to choose from. So, what Halloween costume ideas are there?

Halloween Costume

Michael Myers

One of the most instantly recognizable movie characters of all time, Michael Myers is the killer from the Halloween series of films apart from the second sequel. With a blue jumpsuit and white mask which makes it very difficult to see his eyes, a Michael Myers outfit can be purchased online. By buying a white mask which has straggly hair attached, a person can look just like the Haddonfield killer.

Ghost Face

Many people are very scared of Ghost Face. The killer in the Scream franchise, various people are responsible for killing teenagers and adults but the same costume is used. Ever since the first movie was released in 1996, Ghost Face costumes have been made available online by retailers.

Indiana Jones

For something completely different, dress as Indiana Jones this Halloween. With his trademark Fedora hat and whip, Indiana Jones is a popular character that has appeared in four films. Young people could even be him. Not only did a younger Indiana Jones appear in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade but there was also a TV series based on the intrepid archaeologist during his teenage years.

Willy Wonka

There have been two big screen adaptations of Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The latest was released in 2005 but the 1971 original is celebrated more by fans. This Halloween, wear a Willy Wonka costume. He owns the chocolate factory which Charlie and his grandfather visit along with the others who find a golden ticket. Willy Wonka’s outfit looks very surreal and, to look like Gene Wilder who played him in the 1971 original, wear a costume which has a purple suit and a top hat.


There have been many Superman films. Those which starred Christopher Reeve, which were released in the 1970’s and 1980’s, are the most popular. A Superman costume which is similar to what Christopher Reeve wore could be chosen and so too can the one which Henry Cavill wears in Man of Steel. Released in 2013, the costume which Superman wears in this movie is different than Christopher Reeve’s because there is no red underwear and it has a darker shade of blue. By searching around, a group of men, such as a stag party, could each dress as different versions of Superman.

The Joker

One of Batman’s enemies, many actors have been the Joker. Cesar Romero played him in the 1960’s TV series, Jack Nicholson in 1989 in Batman and then by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. A person of any age can dress as each portrayal of the demented maniac. For example, a young child can wear a costume which is similar to Jack Nicholson’s portrayal whereas their father could dress up as Heath Ledger. The Joker is one of the best Halloween costume ideas around because it is instantly recognisable. Even if a child dresses up as Cesar Romero, their friends and family will instantly know who they are because of how well-known the Joker is.
