Struggling to find an original idea for your Halloween get-up this weekend? Don’t worry, we’re all in the same boat. With so much expectation nowadays to come dressed to the nines in never before seen horror get up, the pressure’s on.
So, we’ve come up with a list of a few you’d probably want to avoid this year. Here’s our predicted top trending Halloween costumes of 2019.
Biopic after biopic. Since Halloween 2018, we’ve seen the resurgence of two icons, both of whose wardrobes would rival that of the most flamboyant of fashion designers.
So, if you were thinking of going as Freddie’s white vested, greased back ‘1985 Live Aid’ look or Sir Elton’s blue sparkly sequinned baseball outfit, just remind yourself they have a variety looks so you can at least be a bit more adventurous.
El or Eleven
Millie Bobby Brown is one of our favourite low-key superheroes in a modern age of comic book fandom. But maybe shaving your head just for a fancy dress isn’t the best idea you’ve ever had.
So, if you are going to go as El (11), how about rocking her 80’s playsuit style? Not all Halloween costumes need to be gory. Just remember when leaving a room, keep the door open 3 inches.
Mischievous, quirky and downright strange. Harley Quinn has been sitting pretty as Queen of Halloween for the past few years now and with her latest movie release on its way, we don’t see people stopping now.
Forgive the Hallow-pun… But she’s literally been done to death.
We really couldn’t decide on who would be our #1 over played costume of 2019, so just like the disappointing finale of last year’s ‘Apprentice’, we’re calling it a tie.
Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and now Joaquin Phoenix… How many times does the character ‘Joker’ want to spoil us with a great actor performance? Can anyone not do justice to the Joker… *cough, Jared Leto.
With these different Joker styles in play, as much as you want to get noticed dancing extravagantly down a flight of stairs, why not catch people out with a more original Nicholson vibe?
Pennywise the Dancing Clown
Just like the film IT-self, during Halloween weekend you won’t be able to escape from Pennywise. If you wanted to be greeted into the party with “Oh look, here’s the 15th clown of the night” then be our guest.
Our suggestion would be to come as the yellow cagouled boy with one arm and a paper boat… At least you’ll be the most popular person at the party. As long as you don’t mind all the dancing clowns greeting you as Georgie every 5 seconds.
Maybe after reading this you will find yourself lost for originality, but one thing we’ll ask you before leaving. Whatever happened to the old bed sheet with eye holes cut out? …That’ll get you thinking.
