If like me you're struggling with costume ideas for this year's Halloween festivities, maybe these costumes from the big and small screen that I've come across at exhibits in the past twelve months will help provide from inspiration. There have been so many strong women in movies and on television this past year from genres as diverse as comic books, sci-fi, fairytales, period dramas and history, that maybe these following ten outfits will spark some ideas.
Plus for another classic look, be sure to check out Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman TV costume on display too and all these ladies at previous West Hollywood Halloween Carnavals.
If you're planning your own costume inspired by the anti-hero this Halloween, make sure you click through to these detail shots of Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn costume designed by Kate Hawley on display.
And if you like her new sleek look designed by Judiana Makovsky, be sure to also check out Scarlet Witch's costume from Avengers: Age of Ultron by Alexandra Byrne.
This year I've had several costumers contact me for high res images of these costumes to help complete their own creations, so I know these are popular looks.
For another take on this classic fairytale, you can also enjoy Colleen Atwood's take on Cinderella's Stepmother and Stepsisters costumes from Into the Woods.
I've seen many a veiled bride walking West Hollywood's Santa Monica Boulevard and you may even have seen me wear a zombie wedding gown in the past.
And don't forget, there's not just these ten costumes to provide inspiration, make sure to also search through hundreds of iconic costumes from your favourite movies and TV shows on this blog to help find your perfect Halloween outfit.
This year I predict there'll also be plenty of Hillary Clinton pantsuits and Ghostbusters coveralls and proton packs to go with all the usual assortment of witches wardrobes, catsuits and gowns, so be inventive and happy hauntings...
