The big night is less than a week away, so how do you not have a costume yet?! In my world, Halloween is the night of all nights. It's the only day of the year when it's socially acceptable to dress and walk around like an insane person, eat too much sugar, and scare the hell out of total strangers. What's not to love?
Whether or not The Purge franchise will be as successful as Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, or even the Saw movies remains to be seen, but it's definitely winning in the Halloween costumes department.

Jem and the Holograms was one of the hottest cartoon series on TV back in the mid-'80s (though only for a brief time), and was recently given the big screen treatment with the feature film of the same name. While the film bombed at the box office (with good reason), your Halloween costume doesn't have to.
If you're a fan of the Metal Gear video game series, an obvious Halloween costume choice would be Solid Snake, the protagonist of nearly all of the games. However, an even better option would be Big Boss, aka John, Ishmael, Vic Boss, The Man Who Sold the World, and Naked Snake, among many other aliases. He's was once a good man, but better known as the nemesis to Solid Snake. The below costume by YouTube user Erick Zeros showcases Naked Snake in his good era, in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eate...
Whether you've watched Game of Thrones or read the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, you probably know the White Walkers (aka the Others) all too well. They're creepy, otherworldly humanoids shrouded in icy white skin and ice-blue eyes. They are not to be confused with the wights, the reanimated corpses that the White Walkers control.
Mockingjay - Part 2, the final film in the Hunger Games series, hits theaters next month, and what better way to celebrate one of the series' most fabulous characters than with an over-the-top costume this Halloween?
With the explosive popularity of both Thor himself and The Avengers, Thor is an obvious good choice for a Halloween costume.

Instead, craft your own in just a few steps, saving yourself money in the process.
Whether you choose the sassy face of someone like your inner Disgust from Inside Out, or you're the happy-go-lucky Joy, chances are you're well-versed in expressing your inner "ew." So for this Halloween, take pride in your judgmental self by donning a DIY Disgust mask.

I saw an amazing video with a great idea on how to create claws when you have longer nails. I want to go as a Vampire this year, but those claws that you buy look terrible on me, because my nails are long and you can see them under the fake claws. The video was in German, which kinda "spooked" me at first, but the girl added English subtitles (thank god). Here is the video and the instructions she gives:

If you're more skilled with brushes and makeup rather than drills and cardboard, this is the Halloween DIY for you—especially if you're a fan of the Marvel universe.
Ant-Man isn't one of the most famous Marvel superheroes.

Yet with its humor and unique story, Ant-Man has become a hit movie in its own right—and the hero will most certainly make a hit Halloween costume.

For Halloween, most people want to go all out when it comes to decorating their homes with spooky, scary decorations.

When I was young, I wanted nothing more but to be able to freeze things just like one of my favorite X-Men characters, Iceman. Now, Disney's most successful animated film to date, Frozen, brought another icy childhood favorite to the scene—The Snow Queen. And with Halloween right around the corner, all of the princesses out there can get their chance at being ice royalty. While Princess Anna and Olaf the Snowman were the biggest characters in Frozen, Elsa is one of the movie's most memorable ...
With Guardians of the Galaxy's popularity this year, Gamora will obviously be the go-to costume for anyone looking to stand out in a crowd.

And with news that a Maleficent sequel is currently in the works, this will surely be a great Halloween costume this year.
