It’s no secret that we love a good Halloween costume here at Tiredfox.com, and apparently we’re not alone: 47% of Americans dressed up in costumes last year, spending more than $3.2 billion on their festive outfits. And though most of 2020 has certainly felt more like a trick than a treat, we still have a feeling those numbers are only going to increase this year — regardless of whether or not we’re able to mark the occasion in person.
Whether you prefer to dress up in a theme with your crew, use some DIY inspiration to craft something unexpected and original, want to get the whole family involved, or dress up for a virtual party on Zoom, we’ve gathered up some of the most sought-out Halloween costumes for 2020 that are sure to be a hit, no matter how or if you choose to celebrate.
1- Beer Pong Cup Costume
Score big with a crowd-pleasing costume that enlarges the experience of everyone’s favorite party game.
It comes with a wearable red Solo cup that securely straps on with a pair of suspenders, and also includes an inflatable “ping pong” ball that’ll even have strangers approaching you for a quick game.
2- Bob Ross Costume
This creative costume comes with a realistic prop brush and paint-splattered palette, so you can easily find freedom on your canvas by painting some happy little clouds.
3- Maleficent Costume
Maleficent may have had some new looks in the the 2019 sequel, but keep it classic with this sexy and evil costume. It’s a great way for Disney fans to tap into their dark side this Halloween.
4- ’80s Workout Costume
Calling all ’80s babes! Pretending you’re in a Richard Simmons workout video thankfully requires zero perspiration with this colorful costume — though sweatbands and a unitard are a must.
5- “Beetlejuice” Costume
Beetlejuice is one of the most iconic spooky movies of all time. Let’s be real: You’ll probably be watching it a minimum of three times before Halloween, so you might as well embrace your inner striped spirit and dress up as him on the big night.
6- ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Costume
It seems like The Handmaid’s Tale just keeps getting better, and the show is coming back for a fourth season in 2021. You’ll look like Offred and the other handmaids left in Gilead with this easy costume.
7-Wonder Woman Costume
As we come off the high of 2017’s Wonder Woman and prepare for 2020’s Wonder Woman 1984, there’s no better time than now to dress as the warrior herself.
8-Billie Eilish Costume
Billie’s badass vibe is undeniably hard to replicate, but at least this outfit isn’t. For this monochromatic highlighter yellow look, you’ll need matching sweats and a pair of neon sunnies. Bonus points if you go all in with a wig, too.
9- Alexander Hamilton Costume
Whether or not you’ve had the opportunity to see Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton on Broadway, the recently released Disney+ version featuring the original Broadway leads is still a must-see.
But unlike show tickets, a Hamilton costume doesn’t have to cost you hundreds of dollars. Start with some colonial-era essentials, like this ruffled shirt, and build on with a wig and coat, if your budget allows.
10- Fireball Whiskey Bottle Costume
Pour the shots! Whether you’re dressing up as a couple or going solo this Halloween, you’ll look hot in this Fireball Whiskey costume.
