This year Halloween falls on a Monday, so that's a whole weekend of costumes and festivities to think about. This year I'm undecided about my Halloween look, whether to revisit a classic outfit or take inspiration from recent films and TV shows, so I've been looking through all my photos from the past twelve months from all the costume exhibits around L.A. I've spied. Here are ten costumes that may spark some ideas and creativity for your All Hallows' Eve celebrations.
For more inspiration, make sure you also check out the Joker's tuxedo costume from Suicide Squad and Heath Ledger's Joker costumes from The Dark Knight too.
Oscar-winning Costume Designer Janty Yates and Associate Spacesuit Costume Designer Michael Mooney were responsible for the fab Mars surface suits featured in the hit film.
If you like this regal fairytale costume worn by Richard Madden and designed by Sandy Powell, then you'll also love these other Prince Charming costumes from Into the Woods and TV's Once Upon a Time.
If this safari expedition look is too restrained for your taste, be sure to also check out Colleen Atwood's other Oscar-winning Mad Hatter costumes from 2010's Alice in Wonderland.
Plus for more men's outfits from the frontier wilderness, be sure to also check out these other film costumes from The Hateful Eight designed by Courtney Hoffman.
The flares, the wide-collared shirt, the hip colourful jacket and cool shades, groovy man, and perfect for boogying the night away.
Costume Designer Judianna Makovsky worked with Ironhead Studios to bring his sleek African tribal influenced catsuit to the big screen, and you can find some pretty cool Black Panther replica and fancy dress costumeson sites like Amazon.
Personally I think an inventive Halloween costume this year would be a graffitied 'Dead Robin' costume, maybe even a zombified version of the Boy Wonder. After all I've been a zombie Wonder Woman in years past.
If none of these suggestions from the big and small screen get your excited, you can always search through all the other movie and TV costumes here on this blog to find some classic ideas to inspire you.
I'm sure there'll be more than a few Donald Trump parodies, inventive Stranger Things homages, lying Ryan Lochte spoofs and more costumes ripped from politics, current affairs and pop culture this Halloween.
Having run the New York Marathon the past two years, this will be my first Halloween in West Hollywood in a while so I'd better get my thinking cap on now.
