Halloween is just around the corner and most people have already started planning their costumes. This is the best time to have fun with your appearance, indulge your inner child, and express your individuality. If you’re uncertain about what to wear and are still looking for ideas, read through this list of great Halloween costume ideas for 2018. These are some of the most popular options and there’s still enough time to put them together:

  1. Captain Marvel

The hype is real for the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, which is probably one of the most anticipated Marvel characters since the MCU solidified its presence with the first Avengers movie. She is going to be the most powerful Avenger according to official sources, which makes the Captain Marvel costume perfect for this year’s Halloween. Young girls can dress up as Ms. Marvel instead of Captain Marvel, who might not be in the movie but is a very inspirational character.

  1. Daenerys Targaryen


Game of Thrones will have its last season this year and it is time to pay homage to the great Mother of Dragons. There’s no shortage of options available if you decide to dress up as Daenerys because the queen pulls great looks every season. It’s not difficult to put together a great costume, find a Daenerys wig, and wear the makeup. You can also try Sansa or Arya Stark if you want to try something different.

  1. Young Han Solo


The Han Solo costume is very easy to assemble and almost anyone can pull of it. All you need is a shirt, jacket, pants, and that iconic belt. Ever since the Solo origin story movie was released, Han has experienced a surge in popularity once again. This is an effortless costume that only needs an accompaniment of roguish charm and that signature smirk. If you’re feeling adventurous enough, try the Chewbacca costume instead.

  1. Bob Ross


Who doesn’t love Bob Ross? Many grew up on his shows and his videos on YouTube garner millions of views. It’s a very easy costume to pull off because you just need old-school jeans and shirt, the Bob Ross wig, a paint palette, and a brush. Almost everyone can pull this costume off and still stand out. It’s comfortable, easy to assemble, and can be a great conversation starter. You might not be able to replicate Bob Ross’s art, but you might be able to replicate his charm.

  1. Ant-Man


Ant-Man and the Wasp came out earlier this year and were a great success. There are many costume inspirations in the movie, but the Ant-Man one is ideal for your little kid because what kid doesn’t like to be a superhero. Girls have two great options as they can choose the Wasp costume or the Ghost costume, both of which look great! You can have a little group of miniature heroes.

  1. Tennis Players


If you’re looking for easy and interesting costumes for your kids, the Tennis player look is perfect. Both boys and girls can wear this comfortably, and preparing the dress won’t take much time. You just need a regular tennis polo shirt, shorts, or skirts, some wristbands, a headband, a tennis ball, and a small tennis racquet. This is a timeless outfit and you can draw inspiration from any player. Do you want the elegance and precision of Roger Federer or the sheer power of Serena Williams? Just pick a player your children adore and chose a costume based on their style.

  1. Fortnite Costumes


Fortnite is one of the most popular games of 2018 and there are endless costume options to choose from. Kids, as well as adults, can wear looks from this game and have a great deal of fun with it. You can be a Black Knight, Dark Voyager, Skull Trooper, Brite Bomber, Cuddle Team Leader, Tricera Ops, or several other such characters. The costumes are readily available now, but they’re likely to sell out quickly!


All of these Halloween costume ideas can be customized according to your wishes. There are many other options to explore if these don’t fit your style or preferences. You can draw inspiration from the Fantastic Beasts series, Black Panther, Spiderman Games, Stranger Things, or favorite sports personalities.
