The Hottest Halloween Costumes for 2017

Any guesses what costumes are trending?

September 12, 2017

Halloween will be here before you know it. If you are planning on dressing up this year or you need to get a costume for your kids now is the time to do it before stores are picked over. Have you ever gone last minute to Party City or some other place that sells costumes? You can get a cat tale, pirate's patch, and witch's hat but nothing really that goes together. 

I am guessing this year we will see a lot of Wonder Womans because the movie Wonder Woman broke all kinds of box office records. And I guarantee because of the It Movie remake is out that scary clown costumes and even PennyWise Costumes will be on the hot list too. Those are just my thoughts on what will be trending this year. 

I found a list of 50 costumes that are trending this year and some are a bit crazy! Here are some that stood out on the list to me. 

1. Avocado Toast: I looked for a photo of the costume, but there isn't one out there. I think this is one you'd have to create yourself. This could also be a cute couple's costume with one person dressed as the avocado and the other the toast.

2. DIY Emoji Costumes: These can be as easy as just painting a face on a yellow t-shirt. You can make this a group cotume too!

3. Annabelle Doll costume from the Annabelle movie:

4. The old Taylor Swift's from the LWYMMD video: This can be another amazing idea if you have a larger group of friends. 

5. A Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino: 

6. Snap Chat Filters: These could be super easy and would be work place appropriate too! 

Just make sure you consider your audience before choosing a costume. Will you be wearing it to work? And just because you think that your idea is original and funny doesn't meat others will. Always ask a few friends before wearing something that's offensive and wrong. Every year we always see viral stories about people and theur insensitive costumes. Don't be that person!
