This movie-inspired costume idea will get instant recognition from other movie fans. What’s more, you’ll have fun role-playing as the mischievous, charismatic villains from the DC universe that you grew up loving!
3. Vampire Couple
What if you want to pick a theme without committing to a “character universe” this year? Go timeless by going ageless! Of course, that means going as an eternal vampire couple. Once you pick out your costumes, make up your own backstory about the love you’ve shared throughout the centuries.
4. Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin
Only choose this costume option if you want to be the talk of the party this year! If you enjoyed the “Tiger King” craze of 2020, it’s time to make Halloween 2021 a roaring success by dressing like the two main characters from the documentary.
