When choosing a fancy dress Halloween costume, there are so many different options available. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the icons from different eras that make some of the most popular Halloween fancy dress outfits today.
There is only one place to begin and this is with the witch, which is a Halloween costume that never fails. This outfit can be dated back to the 17th century, when people started to fear the supernatural, and many people were put to death because they were accused of witchcraft. The pirate is our next source of inspiration, which came a century later, when many young men choose a life on the high seas. Every Halloween, we see costumes with hooks for hands and eye patches. Although not scary, the Cowboy costume is one we see often, and can easily be made frightful with a bit of pale make-up and fake blood. The inspiration for this comes from the 19th and 20th century, with the Cowboy being an icon of Old Western America. Let’s move to more recent times, with a lot of people opting for pop culture favourites. Avatar characters and the Mad Hatter were popular choices in 2010 while Wolverine and Twilight characters were present at every party throughout 2009. Several years before this, you’d see Spartan and Jack Sparrow every Halloween. People often want to dress as their favourite characters.
