10 women's costume ideas for Halloween from the movies...

Are you still struggling with what to wear this Halloween? If you've not yet decided on your fancy dress look this season, maybe these ten original costumes for women will help give you some inspiration from the movies.

Catwoman Dark Knight Rises movie costume
Anne Hathaway looked super-sexy as the latest incarnation of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but then not everyone has such skinny waist as she does.
Dejah Thoris
Dejah Thoris John Carter movie costume
Disney's sci-fi movie John Carter may have disappointed at the box office, but this outfit worn by Lynn Collins as the alien princess 'Dejah Thoris' would certainly be a showstopper if you had the body and confidence to wear it.

Mary Poppins

For something a little less revealing, but instantly recognizable, how about this iconic ensemble worn by Julie Andrews as the magical nanny, Mary Poppins.

Margaret Thatcher
Margaret Thatcher Iron Lady movie costumes
Thanks to wonderful makeup effects and a fantastic wardrobe, Meryl Streep was transformed into the infamous British Prime Minister 'Margaret Thatcher' in The Iron Lady. For a more American political flavour, I'm sure a good Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin impersonation would be easy to replicate too.

Maid Marian
Maid Marian Robin Hood movie costume
If you're a fan of Medieval Times and Renaissance fairs, maybe a dancing costume like this one worn by Cate Blanchett as 'Maid Marian' in the 2010 remake of Robin Hood would be your taste.

Giselle Enchanted fairytale princess gown
And if you've ever dreamt of being a fairytale princess, then Amy Adams 'Giselle' gown from Disney's Enchanted is a beautiful costume to provide some inspiration.
Queen Narissa

Speaking of Enchanted, if you're feeling a tad more mischievous and villainous, what about an evil queen costume like this one worn by Susan Sarandon in the movie.
Cruella de Vil
Cruella de Vil 102 Dalmatians flame dress
And if you love iconic Disney villains, what about causing a spectacle with an exquisite costume like this flame dress worn by Glenn Close as the fur-loving 'Cruella de Vil' in 102 Dalmatians.
Katy Perry
Katy Perry Part of Me concert costume
Do you have a favourite pop star like Britney, Cher or Madonna? Maybe you could dress up as your idol, especially as the candy-coloured stylings of someone like Katy Perry make for some pretty eye-catching outfits.

Mamma Mia's Rosie
Mamma Mia Julie Walters dance finale costume
Speaking of music, maybe you can draw some inspirations from your favourite musical or 70's band, like ABBA. Better yet what about this costume worn by Julie Walters as 'Rosie' in Mamma Mia: The Movie, spied alongside the Maid Marian costume at Universal Studios Hollywood earlier this year.

I hope these fabulous costumes have provided some Hollywood inspiration for your Halloween outfit. Whatever look you choose, be sure to have a frightfully fun time.
