Women’s Halloween Costumes
For some women, Halloween is the one time a year you can show a little extra skin. From mermaids to Marie Antoinette, BuyCostumes.com offers hundreds of sexy women’s Halloween costumes. Do you remember the disco days? Be proud! Show off those moves in misses and plus size costumes that will take you back to those days of mirrored balls and Dorothy Hamill haircuts.

It’s always fun to indulge in a darker side on All Hallow’s Eve with horrifically delightful duds. At the top of the list for 2014: vampires, zombies and inspiration from Disney’s Maleficent.

If that’s too over the top for you, you’ll have fun browsing costumes by theme, character historical era or nationality. It’s easy to look pulled together as a geisha, wicked witch, or Mary Poppins from the movie Saving Mr. Banks:

One of the easiest looks to pull off is an orange jumpsuit, wig and fake handcuffs inspired by the hit Netflix show, Orange is the New Black.  No makeup required!

Flex your muscles (even if you don’t have any) in some of this year’s most popular costumes, like Thor, Duff Man, Wolverine and Super Mario – in regular and plus sizes.

Be truly inspiring as Abraham Lincoln or as truly ridiculous as Sharknado.

Classics like cops, cowboys, pirates and princes are always a safe choice, and you can afford to add a scepter or saber when you use coupons to buy your costume. For men with adventurous flair, the steampunk look is sure to be a hit, even if you have to explain it a little.

Adult DIY Costumes
Whether you’re on a budget or don’t like to go all-out (or, OK, if a full-on costume would raise eyebrows at the office), you can order accessories and kits that will get you in the spirit. A blue wig and a t-shirt and you’re ready to be Thing 1 or Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat. Order a Miss Piggy wig with attached ears and tiara, plus a nose. Pair it with that red cocktail dress you never get around to wearing. Voila, dahling!

BuyCostumes.com has a huge assortment of wigs, accessories, skin suits, theatrical makeup, halos and pitchforks. Build a look from simple to sensational, and use an online coupon to scare up the best savings.

  1. My favorites are Mario and Mary Poppins. The others look great, but just not perfect enough. Thanks for all your suggestions though!

  2. Though I see people dressed for halloween 365, I prefer to save the costume for the actual night. I like the version of orange is new black. Thanks for the idea!
