Wild Jungle Jane Tarzan Costumes for Women

Disney's Tarzan Noble Aristocratic Jane Costume
Hunter Jane Tarzan Costume
We've had a new Tarzan movie out this year, complete with adverts and posters that look like they are trying to sell you men's deodorant. With every popular movie comes a great set of costumes, so lets look at some costumes that have been made for the female protagonist of the Tarzan films, Jane. 

First up, featured at the top of this post, is a blast from the past with the cute southern belle style day dress worn by Jane in the original animated Disney movie. This is quite a hard costume to come across as Jane didn't get turned into a Disney Princess like many other Disney protagonists of the era, but there are a number of dedicated cosplay companies which will make it. The one above comes with the dress, a blue tie, the cute umbrella, and a pair of gloves

If you are a fan of the new movie, then check out the outfit on the left for a replica of Jane's costume from the Legend of Tarzan. Every set of this costume comes with the mini-dress, hat, and matching belt. You can get a hanging chimpanzee plush like the one in the picture here

Alternatively, you can opt for a costume inspired by Jane but not specifically based on one of the films, like the sexy leopard skin style two-piece costume below. You can get a sabre tooth bracelet and necklace here to match. Why not pick up a replica Tarzan spear to finish off the look? 

Jungle Jane Costume
There you go! Those are three wonderful costumes for fans of Tarzan to sink their claws into this Halloween. I hope you found a costume which is perfect for you and have a lot of fun dressing up. Still looking for the perfect costume? Be sure to check out the rest of this blog for hundreds of costume ideas for women and girls. Happy Halloween!

Cool Zootopia Halloween and Party Costumes for Kids

Judy Hopps Kids Costume
Nick Wilde Kids Costume
A big hit in the kids' animation movie market has been the animated stereotype-buster Zootopia, featuring the plucky Judy Hopps as a bunny police officer and Nick Wilde as a smooth con artist. If your kids are in love with the movie, why not get them some fun costumes based on the main character to dress up with for Halloween?

Above is a fantastic costume that will let your child dress up as Judy Hopps. You can get the matching carrot recorder and official badge to match right here. You can also get a version of the costume where the headpiece is just rabbit ears: find that here. Either costume would look great with the headpiece replaced with this cute replica bowler hat with attached rabbit ears. Meanwhile, on the right is an awesome Nick Wilde costume for kids. 

So there you have it! Some super cute Zootopia themed costumes that you can use for Halloween. I hope you found everything that your need and have a ton of fun.

Women of the X-Men Marvel Costumes for Halloween and Conventions

Black Storm Costume with Cape
Sexy Storm Veil Costume
We've had a lot of superhero costumes on this blog since it began in 2013, but somehow I have never gotten around to doing a post about the women of the Uncanny X-Men. Well, now it is time to fix that!

Let's start off with one of everyone's favourites, the turbulent and powerful Storm. Above is a replica of her costume from the X-Men movies, a badass looking black jumpsuit with a flowing cape to match. If you like this costume, you can get the wig you see in the picture here, or if you want a more pure white one with black undertones to get the comic look, check out this wig here.

Mystique XMen Jumpsuit Costume
If you are looking for something a little different with a lot of sex appeal, then you might like the revealing catsuit costume on the left. Each set of this cute costume comes with the catsuit, cape, and headpiece. This black and grey ombre wig would look lovely with it too.

Another fan-favourite and frequent X-Men villain is the shape-shifting Mystique. Technically, given she can imitate any human, you're ordinary look would do as a Mystique costume, but I suppose you'd be more recognisable in her 'true form'. A cool blue jumpsuit based on her true look can be found on the left. The matching wig for the costume is available here. Don't forget to pick up some blue face and body paint! If you want to go out with the makeup, be sure to check out the cool Mystique makeup video tutorial below to learn how. It's very easy to follow and is a great way to really stand out from the crowd.


Dark Phoenix Costume
Next up, lets look to a very long-time member of the X-Men, the powerful psychic Jean Grey. Jean's had a lot of looks over the years, and quite a few of them are available for you to use in costume form. 

Jean Grey Marvel Cinematic
Universe Costume
If you are a fan of somewhat less heroic Dark Phoenex era of Jean Grey's comic book run, you can find a great replica of her red jumpsuit costume from that storyline on the right. Why not combine it with some fun golden heeled boots?

If you prefer the green version of that outfit, you can find that here. If you weren't blessed with long red hair at birth, then you can finish the outfit off with this lovely long red wig.

If you like her velveteen red suit and overcoat from the movies, that is also available in cosplay form. Check out the beautiful replica on the left, for example, which comes with everything you see in the image. If you don't have hair like Jean's, this is a great wig for finishing off the look.

Ms. Rogue Spandex Costume
Psylocke Cosplay Costume
For those of you who want to keep a good distance between yourself and others, lest you drain away their lives and energy, you're in need of an awesome costume based on the comic book stylings of Rogue. Above is one such bright and colorful spandex jumpsuit with Rogue's signature green and yellow design. You can get a great two tone wig for this costume here.

Last, but not least, one of my favourite super-heroine costumes is that of the deadly Psylocke, an unusual leather-look purple number which has been replicated with the costume on the right. It's pretty cool! Each set of this costume comes with the jumpsuit and vest, the leg covers, gloves, and matching waistbelt. If you do end up going for this costume, you just have to have purple hair to go with it. Find a great purple hair wig here.

So there you have it! Eight fantastic costumes for dressing up as the women of the Xmen comic books and Marvel Cinematic Universe. I hope you found a costume that is just perfect for you and have a tone of fun dressing up at your Halloween party or convention. If you are still looking for costume ideas, be sure to check out the rest of my blog, where you will find hundred of costume themes to give you all the inspiration you could want. Have fun!

Top Star Wars: The Force Awakens Costumes for Halloween for Women and Girls!

Rey Force Awakens Costume
Rey Force Awakens Child Costume





















The Force has awakened once more after years of pressing the snooze button, and that means it's time for a new Star Wars costume post! You can get a whole load of the new characters in women's costume or unisex version, starting with the mysterious and powerful protagonist herself, Rey, featured above. Each of these costumes comes with the top, pants, detached sleeves and leather-look cuff, and belt with pouch. Her desert staff weapon is available here, and a more three dimensional version of her matching side bag as well as her desert veil from the beginning of the movie are also available.

BB-8 Costume for Kids
Women's BB-8 Dress Costume
Star Wars Finn Costume

This one is a very cute option for kids who fell in love with R2D2's successor, the adorable BB-8. As well as looking super cool, the costume above on the left is very easy to set up: it has a little fan inside which keeps it inflated. If that's not your style, you can get a non-inflatable version of the costume here. There's sadly no exact equivalent for adults, but you can get a super cute BB-8 skater dress like the one above, which comes with the dress and the matching headpiece.

There sadly isn't a dedicated Finn costume for women yet, but the kids of both genders should have no trouble with the cute Finn costume featured above. Adults can try out the men's costume: its a bit broad shouldered but it can be made to work! Be careful in choosing your size: air on the small side.

Adult's Captain Phasma Costume
(Available in children's sizes here)
Kylo Ren Sith Force Awakens Costume
(Available in children's sizes here)
Finally, let's get on to some villains. First of all, Phasma! Because after Game of Thrones Gwendoline Christie seems to have been type-cast as a boss-armor wearing sort, and that is awesome. The costume above comes with the armor and matching belt, a two piece helmet and the cap. The matching stormtrooper blaster you see in the picture is available here.

Finally, to indulge the emo-uh-I mean dark sider within us all, on the left we have Kylo Ren! Each of these creepy costume sets includes the dark robe, a hooded cape, the belt, and the iconic mask. You can get his awesome three bladed lightsaber here, and some (presumably lightsaber-proof) Kylo Ren gloves to hold it with here.

So there you have it! That is my guide to dressing up as the new characters from Star Wars: the Force Awakens this Halloween. I hope you found everything you need and have a lot of fun! If you want to see costumes from the original two trilogies of Star Wars, you can check out my posts on those here.

How to Dress Up as the Scarlet Witch (Avengers, Captain America: Civil War)

Scarlet Witch Cosplay Outfit
Red Faux Leather Jacket
The Scarlet Witch has finally ascended to be one of the new Avengers as of Captain America: Civil War, and that means its time for a Scarlet Witch Halloween costume post! 

Black Flare Mini Dress
How you go about putting together this costume really depends on your budget. If money is no limit, I definitely recommend going for a custom made Scarlet Witch cosplay outfit like the one above, which comes with the top, pants and fingerless gloves.

If you are on a budget, however, you can make an amazing Scarlet Witch costume out of a short black skater dress like the one on the left and combining it with a burgundy leather jacket like the one on the right. Then, all you need are some knee high leather boots and a long brown wig like the one featured below to finish off the look. Perfect!

Marvel Scarlet Witch Wig
So there you have it! A wonderful guide to cosplaying as the powerful Scarlet Witch. I hope you found everything you need and have a great time. If you are still looking for the perfect costume idea, I recommend you check out the rest of this blog for hundreds more great costume ideas for women and girls!

Dress Up as the Ladies of the Suicide Squad (Harley Quinn & Katana)

Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Costume
Suicide Squad Katana Costume
(Available in Kids Sizes here






















Suicide Squad is many things, and the main thing is stylish. Harley Quinn was already the comic book world's sweetheart, but now she has a new outfit and is joined by another bad ass woman with an improbably effective weapon, the brooding Katana! If you fancy cosplaying as members of the suicide squad this Halloween, I highly recommend the costumes above. You can get the matching wig for the Harley costume here, while the Katana wig is available here. Don't forget to pick up their weapons too, a baseball bat for Harley and a...katana...for...Katana.

Bravo Detainee Harley Costume
That's not the only Harley Quinn costume from the movie, however, you can also get the orange jumpsuit that Harley wears while detained in the maximum security prison, featured above. Each set comes with the button up orange shirt, tank top, and matching pants. We also get some cameos of her outfits from other media: you can check out some costume replicas of those outfits here.

Harley Quinn Suicide
Squad Boots
You can also get a tonne of accessories for the Harley Quinn outfit separately, such as the completely stunning heeled black and white boots on the right. Also available for the costume if Harley's gold spiked cuffs, Puddin' Belt and matching bracelet, as well as some temporary tattoos in the style of Harley's to finish off the look. With all than that, you'll be more than ready to cause some chaos.

So there you have it! That is my guide to dressing up as the ladies of the Suicide Squad this Halloween. I hope that you found everything that you needed and have a lot of fun out there. Stay bad!

How to Dress Up as the Purge Villains for Halloween

Purge James Sandin Creepy Mask
Black Suit Blazer
Purge may be Halloween for grown ups, but in this reality we are stuck with regular old Halloween. We can still honor our New Founding Fathers by ensuring that we scare the living daylights out of the common man though, right? Let's get stuck into creating some awesome Purge costumes!

White Nightgown
Let's start with the first movie. The antagonist of that film harassed the protagonists while wearing a truly bizarre elongated mask like the one above, so start with that. 

The rest of the costume depends on whether you want to dress as the main villain or one of his female henchmen. If you are going for the henchmen, you will want a cream or white Victorian style nightgown for the body of the costume, like the one on the left. If you want to go as the exceedingly polite psychopath, you'll need a suit  combo like the blazer one on the right combined with black trousers, a blue shirt and a tie. Either way, finish off the costume with a suitably bloody prop weapon like this one.


Smay's Purge Mask Replica
Its also very easy to set up some costumes based on the various hooligans from Purge: Anarchy. Most of the antagonists encountered in Anarchy are simply wearing the sort of dark hoodies and trousers you probably already have, but combined with a super cool mask. A number of sellers make replicas of these masks, such as the 'God' mask above and the 'Cross' mask here which mimics one of the antagonist's makeup. You can also replicate the makeup yourself at home: just follow this video tutorial.

Kiss Me Prom Candy Girl Mask
Pink and White Ruffled Dress
Things always get crazy around election time, and Purge: Election Year is no exception. There are a whole host of cool outfits to imitate as everyone goes all out on what is probably the last ever purge (barring some kind of civil war... The Purge: Civil War anyone?). Let's start with one of the main antagonists of the movie, the thieving rich Candy Girl prom queen who just wants her damn candy bar for god's sake. You can find the mask she wears above, and you'll want to combine it with a short organza pink prom dress like this one

If you can bear to splatter that beautiful dress with fake blood in order to get the 'I just murdered my parents in cold blood' look, that would be perfect, If not you might want to choose a style of dress like the one on the right, which already gives off the 'bloodied skirt' aesthetic when combined with blood spatter on your arms and legs. Here's another one with a red undertone.

Adult's Unisex Uncle
Sam Costume
Lady Liberty Costume







Lady Liberty Headpiece

Finally, we have the bright and colorful murder tourists! The two most memorable of these reprobates are the evil Uncle Sam and the sparkly Statue of Liberty, and its very easy to put together those costumes. Just start with a standard Uncle Sam or Lady Liberty costume like the ones above, and combine it with the matching Uncle Sam mask or glowing cross mask below.

Uncle Sam Purge Masks are Often Available on Etsy!
It is also possible to replicate the masks from Election Year using makeup, which is a good budget option. Here is a video tutorial for creating the Lady Liberty costume mask in makeup form, here is one for creating the look of the prom queen candy girl, and here is one for our favourite evil Uncle Sam. He want you...to purge!

Light Up Purge Mask
So there you have it! That was my guide to putting together the costumes from the original Purge movie, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year. If I have missed out any of your favourite costumes from the movies, let me know in the comments below. Otherwise, I hope you found everything you need!

If you are still looking for the perfect costume for this Halloween, be sure to check out the rest of my blog for all the best costume ideas for women on the net. Get inspired, and get purging!

How to Dress Up as Marvel's Deadpool

Rubie's Deadpool Costume for Women
(Available in the UK and EU Here)
Deadpool Mask
They made a Deadpool costume for women! This was a surprise to me, as normally the ladies have to wait years to get a fitting version of superhero costumes, if it ever comes out at all. It looks pretty awesome too! Each set of the above costume comes with the bodysuit and detachable mask. This costume would work really well paired with these dragon ninja katana swords and these Deadpool boot covers. Don't bother bringing guns, you'll just end up leaving them in the car.

If you want a mask which hides your eyes, I would pick up the mask on the right separately. If you want a less shiny bodysuit, then I recommend you check out this unisex version, which has the advantage of a slightly more accurate mask. 

How to Dress Up as Annabelle (The Conjuring)

Before the Conjuring: Creepy Annabelle Doll Costume
(Available in the UK and EU Here)
Annabelle Creepy Mask
(Available in the UK
and EU Here
)
So I'm crazy obsessed with Blumhouse Productions string of hit horror movies, and I've already made posts on Mr Boogie from Sinister and the ghosts and demons from the Insidious movies, so now its time for another great set of movies: The Conjuring series. Specifically, this post features a costume which will allow you to dress up as the terrifying Annabelle, who lurked creepily in the background of both Conjuring movies and even got her own prequel.

This is a very simple costume: above is a set that has everything that you need, including the replica dress, the spooky doll mask and a matching blond wig to finish off the look. If you already have a long white dress or Victorian style night gown (or intend to buy one - this one is quite nice), you can save yourself some money by buying the mask and wig set on its own, which you can find on the right. 

Alternatively, if you have a white nightgown and want to save even more money, check out the awesome video tutorial below to learn how to replicate the creepy doll face look with makeup!


There you have it! A few different ways to go about making a creepy Annabelle costume for Halloween.
