Halloween is the best day of the year for people who want to dress up and get noticed for doing so. Read on for tips on how to make waves at this year’s Halloween parties with your stunning costume.

Win with Current Pop Culture

There are a few surefire ways to make sure your costume gets noticed and loved, and dressing as a character from a hugely popular show, movie, or book is one of them. The recipe for success generally works like this: select a beloved character from current pop culture, choose a costume that represents that character but with a sexy twist, add in little details that confirm to everyone just who you are supposed to be dressed as, and enjoy everyone fawning over your costume all night long.

Currently, there are some excellent options that are sure to get some love. Superheroes are wildly popular these days and give you many options to choose from, such as Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Ironman, Captain America, Black Widow, Batman, and more. Female characters or gender bending costumes are both excellent takes on superhero costumes. Other popular shows include Game of Thrones and The Bachelor. Dressing as the mother of dragons or a favorite evil queen is sure to be a hit. A group costume with sexy outfits, red roses, and one man as your bachelor is also sure to be a crowd favorite.

Tap Into Nostalgia

Another surefire way to choose a costume that the masses will love is to tap into people’s sense of nostalgia. Childhood favorites, classic movie characters, or pop culture hits from the ’80s or ’90s resonate with people in a fun way. An adult twist on beloved cartoon characters like Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Tinkerbell, Ariel, Cinderella, or others is always fun. You could also consider a costume that is a hot take on the movie Clueless, one of Britney Spears’ music video characters, a member of the Addams Family, or everyone’s favorite mouse.

Group Costumes

Couples’ costumes, themed costumes with your girls, or other group costumes are a fun way to coordinate with your friends and do more with a costume than you can do on your own. A group of hot Disney princesses or superheroes and groups of animal costumes are always fun. A group costume of ladies in uniform that include nurses, cops, firewomen, and more allows everyone to choose their sexy costume while still fitting into the group. Couples’ costumes, such as a certain robed man and his favorite bunny, a police officer and her criminal, an angel and devil, and others, can be a fun way to celebrate Halloween with your partner.

Heat Up a Classic

A final approach to Halloween is to spice up a classic costume idea. Think sexy ninja, cowgirl, pirate, sailor, Viking, race car driver, or other classics to heat up your Halloween.

It’s All in the Details

At the end of the day, once you’ve chosen a character or costume to work with, it’s the details that really matter. The right hat, fake weapon, shoes, tiara, glasses, ears, wings, whip, or other accessories can transform a costume from basic to brilliant. For example, if you’re going as a Greek goddess, making a statement is about more than just getting the right dress. Your headpiece, thigh straps, arm bands or wrist cuffs, and strappy sandals will be what set you apart from the rest. Anyone can come dressed as a cop, but having your handcuffs, walkie talkie, baton, and badge will elevate your costume game to the next level.
