With Halloween spirit around the corner as city streets quickly light up with pumpkins, fall leaves and spooky decorations, you may be struggling to come up with original and exciting costume ideas to let you stand out from the expected crowd of witches and vampires. Here are some of the best pop culture costume ideas from this year’s movies and TV characters. Happy Halloween from Real Style!
Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) from Dark Knight Rises
This summer, Batman made a return to screens everywhere and left us with inspiration for Halloween come fall. Anne Hathaway brilliantly played a stylish, smooth-talking and elegant Catwoman, complete with blood red lips, skintight leather bodysuit and cunning attitude. You can always get a Catwoman-esque look with black skinny pleather pants or leggings, expensive black masquerade mask, black bodysuit and leather jacket, and slicked-back locks with the signature cat ears.

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) from The Hunger Games
The brave and adventurous Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) made a splash in theatres this spring, with her windblown brunette braids, bold gaze and heroic nature. Luckily for any fans who are planning on channeling their inner Katniss for the 31st, her style is fairly low-key and great for a last minute costume. Try a pair of tall brown leather boots with a V-neck tee, her signature leather bomber jacket and either black of khaki slim-fitting pants. Braid your hair into a loose, slightly wavy side braid, and don’t forget your bow and arrow at home!
Snow White (Kristen Stewart) from Snow White and the Huntsman
Kristen Stewart played an updated Snow White in the theatrical release of the movie earlier this year, adding a dark and edgy twist to the Disney classic. Her character’s subtle makeup and dark wavy tresses are simple to do by yourself at home, unless you wish to connect with your evil side and would rather go as the wicked queen (Charlize Theron).
Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) from The Avengers
Available online at Wholesale Halloween Costumes’ website ($44.90 and sold in small, medium and large sizes), the Black Widow costume is sleek and sophisticated. Look chic and feel tough as you head out for the night in this black jumpsuit which is equal parts style and superheroine!
Khaleesi (played by Emilia Clarke) from Game of Thrones
The popular HBO series is sure to impact Halloween parties this year, with the elegant Khaleesi (played by Emilia Clarke) being a great, glamourous choice for an outfit. Khaleesi often appears onscreen in flowing bohemian-style dresses, distressed leather, corset tops, and skirts in neutral tones. Her long platinum blonde waves, bold eyebrows, and dark eye makeup are all fashion-forward as well.
