Glee Halloween Costume Ideas

Glee Costume Ideas For Halloween

Glee is one of the most popular shows on television right now, and there are plenty of costume options for any Glee fan who wants to use this as a Halloween theme.

Cheerleaders

The cheerleader outfits from Glee are instantly recognizable, and there are more than a few characters to choose from.

The basic cheerleader outfit consists of the red and white uniform. You can buy officially licensed costumes that come ready with the WMHS stitched onto the front of the outfit, or you can put it together yourself with a more generic cheerleader outfit you’ve found in a store somewhere. To complete the look, add white sneakers and cheerleader pom poms.

Now it’s time to choose which specific character you want to be. If you want to go as airhead Brittany S. Pierce then make sure you get your hands on a blond wig, or a dark wig if you’d rather go as Santana Lopez. Another fun option is to stuff your outfit so it looks like you’re the pregnant head cheerleader Quinn Fabray.

Sue Sylvester

Just about everyone loves the character of Sue Sylvester, and it’s as much fun acting like her as it is to wear her clothes! She isn’t one to mess around and will do anything to win.

For this costume you’ll need the classic red tracksuit. Again this is available in an officially licensed costume, complete with the Glee logo and blonde wig, though it shouldn’t be too hard to make your own if you can find a tracksuit in the right color.

Glee Footballer Costume

The perfect match for the Glee cheerleader is the footballer – great as a couples costume or even if you’re going to a party alone. This costume consists of the red jacket bearing the important “M” logo. Again, buy the licensed costume to make things as easy as possible, and pair it with a mohawk wig to instantly transform yourself into Noah “Puck” Puckerman.

Other Glee Costume Ideas

Of course, you may want to go as a specific character, rather than simply a member of the football team or cheerleading squad. One choice would be Will Schuester – director of Glee club. To pull this off you’ll simply need a shirt, tie, vest and a curly blonde wig.

Or perhaps you’re a woman who’d like to go as Rachel? You’ll need a long brown wig and a “geek chic” outfit to match. This might mean knee-high socks, a skirt and a plaid jumper. You could even carry around a microphone with you to complete the look.

Game Of Thrones Halloween Costume Ideas

6 Game Of Thrones Halloween Costume Ideas

The Game of Thrones TV series has really taken off in the past year. It features a huge range of unique characters, which means that there are many, many costume options available to you if you choose this theme. Here are six of the most notable.

Eddard “Ned” Stark

Ned Stark is one of the most famous characters from the Game of Thrones TV series, and one of the most popular Halloween costume choices for men. His clothing is simple in color, but complex in its detail. He wears a brown leather tunic with a holder for his sword. Over the top he often wears a thick fur cloak to keep warm as winter draws ever closer.

Catelyn Stark

If your significant other is going as Ned Stark, why not choose the Catelyn Stark costume for yourself? Catelyn usually wears her hair half up, half down, and her outfit matches her husband’s in many ways. She wears simple, natural-colored dresses underneath a thick fur coat.

Khal Drogo

If you’ve got the physique for it then why not be brave and go as the huge Khal Drogo this Halloween? Drogo dwarfs pretty much anyone standing near him, both in terms of height and muscle size! Khal has a distinctive long braid down his back, showing just how fierce a warrior he is. Aside from this he walks around with a bear chest (with a deep tan), a thick brown leather waist belt, a belt over his hips made up of horse medallions and brown pants.

Khaleesi

Daenerys Targaryen reluctantly married Khal to become Khaleesi of the Dothraki people. Her distinguishing feature is her long blond hair. Other than this she can be seen wearing typical Dothraki clothing – a brown, cropped woven shirt, a similarly colored long skirt, brown short gloves and a number of belts around the waist.

The Night’s Watch

Another Game of Thrones Halloween costume idea is to go as a man of the Night’s Watch. It’s cold where they are, so they’re known to wear thick black coats complete with black fur, black boots, a cloak and a sword.

Queen Cersei

If you’d rather go as an evil queen this Halloween then Cersei could be the character for you. Her hair is one of her most notable features – it’s extremely long and is usually left down. If you want to get the real Game of Thrones look then tie your hair half up in some wonderfully detailed, medieval style complete with a crown! For the clothing, a long medieval gown will do, as long as it has a regal quality.

Conan The Barbarian Halloween Costume

A Guide To Creating The Perfect Conan The Barbarian Halloween Costume

There’s bound to be a boost in the number of barbarian costumes you see at any Halloween party this year, thanks to the remake of the classic Conan movie in 2011. The new Conan is just as big and muscly as ever before – but even if you don’t quite have the same muscle volume, you can still go as this famous character for Halloween.

Perfecting The Conan Costume

Conan is a warrior and has plenty of scars to show it. He’s brave, wearing very little in the way of armor (or even clothing in general) and has a signature bare chest.

For clothing, Conan wears leather gauntlets on the arms, a brown leather tunic from the waist down and, in the 2011, chain armor across his left arm. Not forgetting the leather wrapped around his legs and a huge sword ready for any battle!

The official costume comes with all the elements mentioned above to help you recreate the look from the 2011 movie. If you’d rather go as the original Conan, then you could always pair the costume with an Arnold Schwarzenegger mask for an added bit of comedy.

The hair is long and disheveled – Conan doesn’t have time to keep it neat! As for the face, it’s almost always dirty and bloody. You can recreate this look with a little makeup and some fake blood.

What About The Muscles?

As mentioned earlier, you don’t have to have huge muscles if you want to play Conan this Halloween. Thankfully, official Halloween costume makers have accounted for the fact that most normal people just don’t look like Conan naturally! This is why most official costumes will come with muscle chest pieces to help you get the look just right.

You could also use some makeup tricks to help you look more muscly than you really are. Start with a good layer of fake tan the night before. When it’s time to get ready for the party, use body or face paint to add more defined muscle lines to your bare chest. No, it doesn’t look quite like the real thing, but it’s fun for a Halloween costume!

For The Barbarian Women Out There

If you’re female then there’s no reason why you can’t go as a barbarian warrior yourself, perhaps Conan’s partner in crime? Take the elements of the Conan costume mentioned above: leather skirt, arm gauntlets and a sword, and add a small leather top to the mix.

Burlesque Halloween Costume Ideas

Burlesque Movie Inspired Halloween Costume Ideas

If you’ve seen the hit movie starring Cher and Christina Aguilera then you were probably just as impressed by the costumes as you were with the performances. If you think you’re daring enough to use this theme for Halloween, then here are some exciting ideas to choose from.

Getting The Burlesque Outfit Right

When you think of burlesque, you immediately think of sexy. However, burlesque was just as much about the comedy and the entertainment as it was about the revealing outfits. To get the burlesque look right, you need to have the right attitude – you want to have some fun with this!

The outfits in the Burlesque movie itself generally conform to the traditional idea of this style of costume. Moulin Rouge is another movie that comes to mind when you imagine what was worn – usually dark colors, layers, corsets and ruffles.

When you wear this style of dress, it’s important to get into character. Yes, the costumes are revealing, but you’ve got enough confidence and beauty to carry them off with style!

Thankfully, burlesque has always been a popular theme for Halloween costumes, meaning there are a huge range of readymade outfits to choose from. If you don’t want to go down that route, however, choose a silky corset from a lingerie store and combine that with a ruffled skirt, big hair and some accessories.

Key Burlesque Accessories

As well as the main outfit itself, any Burlesque movie Halloween costume is going to need to make use of key accessories to complete the look…

* Hosiery: Stockings were always an important part of any burlesque outfit, usually attached using garters. You can also use a variety of different tights, including fishnets, sheer designs, or those featuring lines and stripes. As long as it helps shape the legs and add interest to your outfit, it’s in!

* Gloves: Due to the fact that burlesque outfits were usually an exaggeration of clothing worn in Victorian times, costumes often make use of long gloves that extend far up the arm, past the elbows. The gloves also came to form an important part of the striptease.

* Jewelry: You can choose to wear just about any jewelry you want with your burlesque Halloween costume. Necklaces were popular for covering the open neckline, as were hairpieces or dazzling earrings. Anything that’s bold and eye-catching is a good addition to your outfit!

In short, any Halloween costume inspired by the Burlesque movie is a costume to have fun with! Don’t be afraid to spend a few hours pampering yourself and doing your hair and makeup before heading out for the evening as a burlesque performer.

Bridesmaids The Movie Halloween Costume Ideas

Bridesmaids The Movie Halloween Costume Ideas

If you’re looking for an excellent group Halloween costume idea this year then Bridesmaids is a great one. This hit movie wasn’t just for chicks, it went down well with the guys too – everyone will understand this fun Halloween theme when they see you!

How To Put Together Your Bridesmaids Movie Costumes

For this idea to work you’re going to have to have at least three of you going to a party together. One person should be chosen as the bride, the rest should be the bridesmaids.

If you’ve seen the movie then you’ll know that each lady has her own unique style. The famous scene in the wedding dress shop sees them all trying on a different dress. If you like, you could opt for this as the basis of your costume.

It doesn’t even matter if the dresses are the same as the ones in the movie, as long as it’s clear that you’re all bridesmaids to the bride. And, to complete the look, why not make yourself look a little “disheveled” just like the girls in the film. Maybe you can even convey the fact that you’ve got food poisoning and aren’t feeling so good!

Other Bridesmaid Halloween Costume Themes

Maybe the Bridesmaids movie idea isn’t right for you, but you still want to run with the bridesmaids theme? Maybe you even have some old bridesmaid dresses that you could do with recycling? There are a number of fun options to choose from if so…

Awful bridesmaid dresses – There are always those occasions where the bridesmaid is forced to wear a dress she hates. If you’ve ever had to wear a hideous bridesmaid dress, make fun of this fact but getting the most garish dress you can find and wearing that as your Halloween costume!

French bridesmaid – This fun costume is based on a play on words – you’ll wear a usual bridesmaid dress, but you’ll also don a black apron, a maid’s hat and carry around a feather duster.

Zombie bridesmaid – If you don’t mind making your dress dirty, then stain it with coffee or rub some dirt over it. Get hold of some fake blood, make your face look pale and old, and you can go as the zombie bridesmaid this Halloween!
