Top Halloween Costumes for the Ladies
Halloween is coming up quickly. If you really want to wow your friends with your amazing costume, now is the time to start planning. Dressing up has always been fun to do, and this year should not be an exception. Here are the top girl Halloween costumes to look for this year.
The Ultimate Cowgirl - Thanks to today's amazing variety of western wear there is no better time to dress up as an adorable cowgirl. Check out western wear shops for authentic western wear, cowgirl hats, and cowgirl boots. Many second hand stores will have western wear options as well. Plaid shirts, vests, and wranglers are in this year.
Superhero - There is nothing more attractive to a guy than seeing his lady dressed up as a superhero babe. There are plenty of options for you to choose from, with the many superhero flicks that have become blockbusters the last few years. Good places to search for inspiration are the heroines from X-men, Fantastic 4, Batman, Spiderman, Tomb Raider, and the like. There are literally hundreds of options to choose from, and you just might impress your date by researching a little more and finding one a little less well known.
Pirate or Wench - This is the decade for pirates! Thanks to the ultra successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, pirates have never been more popular. Dress up as a daring pirate or a beautiful wench this year. There are plenty of costumes you can find online, or come up with one on your own.
Geisha - This is another popular costume option for women this year. For people who want to be cute, but not ultra sexy, this is a great costume choice. There are very beautiful kimonos and Asian accessories that you can find online, or search through costume shops to find one you like. Makeup with this costume can be a lot of fun as well. Ask a friend to help you come up with the perfect geisha face.
Classic Star Wars - Whether you are a nerd at heart or not, everyone recognizes the classic star wars characters. You can dress up as Princess Leah or Queen Amidala. However, you don't have to limit it to just these two. There are plenty of aliens to dress up as in the Star Wars universe, including Yoda, Chewbacca, and most of the Jedi characters in the first 3 Star Wars films.
Fairy - Dress up as a beautiful fairy this year. Fairy wings and sparkles are all that is needed to pull this costume off. If you want to be extra creative you can dress up as a particular fairy, such as the tooth fairy.
Vampire - It is no surprise that vampires are in this year. Thanks to the ultra successful Twilight series, vampires are going to be a very popular costume choice this year. The costumes will not be limited to slicked back hair and wearing all black this year. The most popular telltale sign of vampires this year will be the pale skin and the eyes. Will you be a good vampire with copper eyes, or will they be black or red? The choice is up to you.
