Fantastic Halloween costume inspiration for women...

Stuck for ideas for Halloween this year? There's still time to make or buy your outfit, so if you're looking for a great ladies costume check out these ideas from the world of cinema to inspire you. Here's everything from sci-fi to fantasy, musical to magical, superheroines to pirates, villainous witches and evil bitches.

BabyDoll costume from Sucker Punch

Even though it wasn't the hoped for blockbuster success, Sucker Punch still seems to have captured the audience's imagination with its tough chicks and iconic outfits, no more so than with Emily Browning's 'Babydoll' Japanese schoolgirl look.

Siren Gem light-suit costume from Tron: Legacy

Even though the movie Tron: Legacy was a bit of a disappointment, the new light-suits in the movie were pretty spectacular, especially these figure-hugging white Siren costumes.

Sweet Pea costume from Sucker Punch

'Sweet Pea' certainly seems to have been a popular character and costume from Sucker Punch. I've literally had loads of cosplayers and people who've made their own outfits thank me for posting these pictures of the original costume on display for reference.

Even though Tim Burton's live-action Alice in Wonderland was released in 2010, I still think there'll be a lot of women sporting the Colleen Atwood inspired designs this Halloween, whether it be a spectacular dress or feminine suit of armour.

Sadly the Harry Potter movies are all over now, but at least they went out on a high note. I can imagine there'll be a few Hermione Granger's and other Hogwarts characters wandering the streets in celebration this All Hallow's Eve.

Natalie Portman's 'Nina Sayers' in Black Swan was a bit of a bi-polar ballet dancer, so you could either choose to dress as her nice ballerina personality or as her more sinister alter ego.

Personally I think the Silk Spectre II costume worn by Malin Akerman in Watchmen was a great reinvention and update of the comic book original, but you do have to have the body and confidence to pull of this look (and maybe someone to help you into the latex outfit).

If you want to feel like a 'sand and sandals' fantasy princess this season, I'd recommend emulating Gemma Arterton's 'Princess Tamina' look.

If you want to be more fierce, there's always 'Jadis' the White Witch in full battle mode from The Chronicle of Narnia to inspire you.

If it's a more heroic look, maybe you could be a Queen of Narnia like 'Susan Pevensie'.

To unlock your swashbuckling spirit check out Penelope Cruz's pirate costume from the fourth movie in the popular Disney movie franchise.

And for some over-the-top ABBA glam, these disco-tastic outfits from Mamma Mia are what you are looking for.

For something a bit more magical you could try being an evil sorceress from Conan the Barbarian's Hyborian age, or a wicked witch like Bette Midler from Hocus Pocus.
