In this blog post, we'll explore ten on-trend Halloween costume ideas for 2023 that draw from recent screen hits, including the Netflix show "Wednesday."
The dark and quirky character from the "Addams Family" franchise received a fresh spin in the Netflix series "Wednesday." Channel the iconic anti-heroine by donning a black dress with a white Peter Pan collar, black tights, and knee-high boots. Style your hair in two braids and complete the look with dark makeup and a sullen expression.
Disney's live-action prequel showcased a younger, edgier version of the classic villain. To pull off a Cruella-inspired look, opt for a black and white wig or color your hair with temporary dye. Wear a punk-style outfit with a mix of leather, plaid, and bold accessories. For a more classic Cruella look, consider a faux fur coat and an elegant black dress.
The God of Mischief's standalone series took the Marvel Cinematic Universe by storm. To recreate Loki's look, wear a green and black outfit with a hint of gold. Top it off with Loki's signature gold-horned helmet and a scepter, and you'll be ready to cause some chaos at your Halloween party.
This Netflix hit put the world of chess in the spotlight. To dress as the stylish and talented Beth Harmon, choose a 1960s-inspired outfit, such as a retro dress, turtleneck, or plaid skirt. Accessorize with a short red wig, and don't forget to carry a chessboard or chess piece as a prop.
The Marvel series "WandaVision" introduced viewers to a new version of Wanda Maximoff's superhero persona. Embrace her powerful and mystical look with a red bodysuit, gloves, and a flowing red cape. Complete the ensemble with a dark red wig and a gold headpiece.
6. The Mandalorian from "The Mandalorian"
The hit Disney+ series brought the Star Wars universe to the small screen and made The Mandalorian a popular costume choice. To recreate the bounty hunter's armor, opt for a helmet, chest plate, and shoulder pads in the signature metallic finish. Wear a dark bodysuit underneath, and don't forget the cape and a prop blaster.
Harley Quinn remains a popular costume choice, thanks to her various appearances in the DC Extended Universe. For her latest look in "The Suicide Squad," wear red and black leather shorts, a matching leather jacket, and a red and black cropped top. Add fishnet stockings, boots, and her signature baseball bat or mallet.
With the recent reboot of the classic "Scooby-Doo" series, Daphne and Velma are back in the spotlight. Dress as Daphne with a purple dress, green scarf, and red hair, or opt for Velma's iconic orange sweater, red skirt, and glasses. Add a magnifying glass as a prop to complete the mystery-solving look.
This South Korean survival drama took Netflix by storm and inspired countless Halloween costumes. Choose between the players' green tracksuits with white sneakers and numbered badges, or the guards' pink jumpsuits and geometric masks. To make the costume even more recognizable, carry a prop inspired by the games, such as a red light/green light doll or a honeycomb candy.
With the release of the fourth installment in "The Matrix" franchise, Neo and Trinity are making a comeback as popular Halloween costumes.
