We like to think we know a thing or two about the hottest Halloween costumes. With October 31st rapidly approaching, we wanted everyone to know which costumes are going to be the most popular Halloween costumes for adults this year.
Some of the costumes on this list are going to seem like no-brainers. They’re either popular year-after-year or you’ve been hearing about them recently due to movie premieres or trends. Although the season hasn’t actually started yet, these costumes are sure to sell out. Luckily for you, we have all of these new costumes available for pre-order!
Without further ado, here are the costumes we know are going to be the most popular for adults this year!
The Robertson family has taken reality television by storm. These country millionaires are known for their duck hunting equipment and their flowing beards. As their show enters its fourth season, Si, Phil, Willie, Jase and Jep are now household names. And with our officially licensed Duck Dynasty costumes, you’ll be a hit wherever you go!
It’s been 12 years since Monsters, Inc. premiered but that didn’t stop Monsters University, the prequel, from being one of this summer’s top blockbusters. In this Disney Pixar movie, we get to see where Mike and Sulley got their start. These monsters had audiences laughing more than screaming but this revisiting of the Disney Pixar classic is the talk of the summer.
The 1920’s never really stopped roaring. Flappers are one classic costume that will never go out of style. These Halloween season, they’re in full swing because of the premiere of The Great Gatsby. Although critics were torn about this book’s screen adaptation, the notable characters, like Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, will help you embody the fun-loving, free-spirit of the prohibition era!
Although 2013 won’t see another Spider-Man movie, the buzz around this comic book character isn’t going away. After the success of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2011, the sequel has been in development, finally set to premiere in 2014. And true to the superhero, this costume is sure to save the day if you’re in a pinch for an awesome look.
Despite Gru’s despicable debut in 2010, audience fell in love with the former super villain and his minions. There’s a lot of love in the sequel to the animated hit. Margo is seriously crushing on Antonio. Gru is looking for a mother for his girls. You don’t have to wait until the last minute to fall in love with these minion costumes!
We can’t seem to get enough of Tony Stark and he doesn’t seem to mind. Iron Man isn’t a new superhero but since Marvel kicked off their franchise films in 2008, he’s becoming more of an idol. Iron Man 3 premiered this year and smashed box office records. Hot on the heels of 2012’s The Avengers, this new installment is holding fans over until the sequel premieres in 2015.
Like I said, people love their superheroes. Joss Whedon is back and better than ever since The Avengers was released last summer. The film brought a lot of favorite, classic superheroes together in one film and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re a die-hard fan, you’re probably counting down the days until the sequel is released. There is so much buzz around these films, you’ll be a shoo in for best costume as one of these superheroes.
Although Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise has come to a close, this vigilante is here to stay. This year, we’ve got classic Batman costumes that are just as iconic as Nolan’s Dark Knight. Batman, Robin, the Joker and the Riddler are probably the 4 most notable characters from the Batman franchise. The classic designs are the perfect way to show just how much of a fan of the caped crusader you are.
There is no doubt that The Wizard of Oz will forever be a favorite classic. So when Oz, the Great and Powerful premiered this year, it’s no surprise why it was a hit. Set 20 years before the 1939 film, we ultimately meet the witches and wizard before they were the characters we knew and loved/hated in the classic film. With a cast full of stars, like James Franco, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis, this prequel inspired many costumes that aren’t the typical Wizard of Oz costumes we’ve grown to know. That’s why these Oscar Diggs, Glinda, Evanora and Theodora costumes will be a hit.
