You’re never too old to dress up for Halloween. Whether you cut a few holes in a sheet and dress like a ghost or spend hours doing makeup and perfecting your outfit to impersonate your favorite movie character, dressing up is a longtime Halloween tradition. To keep you up to speed with the latest Halloween trends and remind you of some classics, we created this list of potential 2015 Halloween costumes.
Try One of These 2015 Halloween Costumes
Jurassic World T-Rex
One of 2015’s top movies was Jurassic World. This inflatable T-Rex costume will place you at the top of the food chain of your Halloween party. Hopefully you won’t scare trick-or-treaters away!
Minions first made their appearance in the animated 2010 Disney film entitled Despicable Me. These cute, yellow creatures gained such a cult following that Disney gave them their own movie, Minions, which came out in the summer of 2015. It’s nearly impossible to go a day without seeing Minion-related posts on social media or Minion merchandise throughout retail stores. Needless to say, the Minion will be one of the most popular 2015 Halloween costumes for children and adults alike.
Star Wars Characters
With a new movie coming out, ever-popular Star Wars costumes will only be more fashionable. Though Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens will not be released until December 18, 2015, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Chewbacca will undoubtedly be some of the top 2015 Halloween costumes.
Classic Costume Ideas
The witch is a costume with which you can never go wrong. There are so many variations of witches to choose from. Whether you’d like to be an evil witch with green skin and a nose wart or a friendly witch, you’ll never be at a loss for witch costume ideas.
You can be a vampire for Halloween simply by running to any store that sells fake vampire fangs, popping them in your mouth and calling it a costume. Or, if you’re a huge Halloween fan, you can get a cloak, paint your face, and add some blood as you go for a more Dracula-like look.
If you’re feeling extra lazy, or if you’ve waited until the last minute, cut some eyeholes in a white sheet and be a ghost!
Presidential elections don’t occur every year, which is yet another reason why 2015 Halloween costumes are anticipated to be some of the best yet. Why not dress as controversial candidate Donald Trump? Whether you agree with his politics or not, you have to admit it would be fun to throw on a toupee and say, “You’re fired” to all of your friends.
Professional athletes are also a go-to for 2015 Halloween costumes. Grab an Odell Beckham, Jr. jersey, find a way to mimic his unique hairstyle and you can be rookie of the year for a night! Or, black out a few of your teeth and masquerade as Washington Capitals’ left wing Alexander Ovechkin.
Popstars are always straying away from societal norms. Whether you want to emulate Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears’ 2001 all-denim outfits or dye your hair one of the same vibrant colors that Nicki Minaj has, dressing up as a popstar is sure to make your Halloween experience a fun one.
Whether your costume is scary or funny, make sure you’re safe this Halloween. The holiday falls on a Saturday this year, so you’ll want to be sure you have safe transportation to and from whatever festivities you may be attending. Call All Island at a location near you or make a reservation online.
