Usually for Halloween, I try not to buy a generic costume. I also don’t want to be anything too strange and unfamiliar that people would have to ask me all night what I dressed up as. I think Pop Culture costumes are adorable (as you can see with my Pop Culture Costumes for 2013 post), so here are a few Pop Culture Halloween Costume Ideas for 2014:
1. The Fault In Out Stars
The hype that came with this book/movie is insane, but in a good way. It brought to light the fact that certain illnesses can come at any age and that life is too short. Hazel and Agustus are the new(er and better) Romeo and Juliet, so why not honor them by dressing up like them? It’s a cute couples costume idea, but you can very well pull off Hazel Grace on your own.
2. Iggy AzaleaNow a highly recognizable name, you could easily sport Iggy Azalea’s signature fashion from her music videos with these looks (I recommend that you pull off the Iggy Azalea make-up, facial beauty marks and all if you don’t want to be recognized as Cher Horowitz, but expect the confusion anyway. Tell them it’s a costume-ception. Or just start rapping).
Conceal, don’t feel. This is probably the hottest costume out right now, and it finally gives you an excuse to belt out all the songs. You can even do Olaf, Sven, Wandering Oaken guy, whathaveyou. Go thrift-shopping and find the pieces you need!
4. Orange Is The New Black
Okay, not technically new, but there are more memes, fans, award wins, and episodes this year. Chocolate and vanilla. Swiiiii-iiiirl.
8. Nicki Minaj in Anaconda
His anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun. I absolutely find this song hilarious, so I will high five anyone I see dressed as the album cover, a music video outfit, or Nicki Minaj at the VMA’s.
9. Gamora in Guardians of The Galaxy
I love any reason to paint myself a different color. And look a that intricate make-up! And beautiful hair! And sexy outfit! You will absolutely stand out AND look fierce at the same time.
