Struggling for Halloween costume ideas? Why not make it a family affair this year and decide on a theme for all of you?

While Halloween no longer restricts itself to the ghostly, ghoulish, supernatural or horrific that’s where it’s origins really lie. The most obvious theme then would be a graveyard one or haunted house and personally I find this can be the most fun.

The possibilities for characters are numerous.

  • Ghost
  • Ghoul
  • Zombie
  • Skeleton
  • Witch (they often cast spells in the graveyard)
  • Vampire (midnight fresh corpse snack)
  • Grave digger
  • Grave robbers

Even Frankenstein’s monster. He could be looking for spare parts or a new wife! Just let your imagination run free.

Movies and comics are great sources of theme ideas. Of course most comics have been made into movies now. The obvious theme to come to mind is Superheroes.

  • Superman
  • Batman
  • Batgirl
  • Wonder woman
  • Zena warrior princess
  • The Green lantern
  • Iron Man
  • Zorro
  • Captain America
  • Spider Man

This one really is almost an endless list.

You can even take one superhero as a theme such as Batman. The Dark Knight threw up, perhaps one of the most memorable movie characters ever. Heath Ledger’s Joker! What a fantastic costume that one is! So, you could have a Dark Knight themed party with the Joker and his clowns. Batman and, okay I know Robin, Batgirl and Catwoman weren’t in the movie but we’re not planning a remake here just a fun night. So just call it a Batman theme party. To make it really work you may want to have some discussions so you don’t have too many of one character. 20 Batmen and one Joker ain’t a fair fight!!

There are of course, some obvious theme costumes.

  • The Adams family
  • The Munsters
  • The Incredibles

If you’re just a couple, no large family you can still get into the spirit of a theme. There are many renowned couples.

  • Bonny and Clyde
  • Anthony and Cleopatra
  • Adam and Eve, though this one might be a bit chilly for the end of October!
  • A pirate couple

There are many very attractive and sexy costumes for the ladies of all kinds. So even as a pirate, gangster or even medieval knight the ladies can be totally feminine if not downright sexy.

More theme ideas:

  • Pirates
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Crusaders
  • Middle Ages
  • X Men
  • Star Trek
  • Star Wars
  • Avatar
  • Robin Hood
  • Wild West

Once you put your thinking caps on there’s no limit to what you can come up with. Just two rules apply for Halloween:

1. Let yourself go
2. Have fun.
