Halloween Costume Ideas To try This Weekend
We just can’t seem to get enough of festivals and celebrations, can we? Just when the Diwali craze was starting to fade, the Halloween craze has kicked in! It’s been just a few years since Halloween became a rage in India and most of us love putting an end to the month of October partying, having fun and dressing up. So, boys and girls, if you are gearing up for Halloween and are confused as to what you should dress up as, we have some fun ideas for you! Cosplaying is something that’s limitless, you can completely copy a fictional character that you love in terms of dressing and make up, or, add your own personal touch to the character. This time, ditch the regular cat woman, superman, man-eating bunny costumes, they’re all so passé! Some innovative peeps even take inspiration from non-living objects and make a character out of them. So, let’s get started.

For the Boys




Everyone watched Dragon Ball Z as a child and Goku was undoubtedly everyone’s hero. Cosplaying as Goku is the easiest to pull off. So, if you’re a lazy guy, this is definitely going to be perfect for you. What you will struggle finding is Goku’s hair in normal shops, but you will easily find it online. So, remember to order it well in advance! Your Halloween costume is ready!


Khal Drogo


‘Game of Thrones’ fans, this idea is for you! Who gets a chance to look rugged, rub bronzer over their chest and knot their beards in real lives? Well, if these things sound tempting to you, then Khal Drogo is your ideal cosplay inspo.


Pablo Escobar


If you can’t help but love the bad boys of television, Pablo Escobar cosplay is ideal for you this Halloween. All you need to do is borrow your dad’s shirt and trousers, maybe a sweater? Add a fake moustache and stuff up your belly a little, and you’re good to go!


Bojack Horseman


If you take cosplaying very seriously, try the Bojack cosplay! This TV show is extremely popular amongst the youth and the fictitious character of Bojack is by far the easiest cosplay idea that you can try this Halloween. Horse-head masks are easily available on Ebay, Amazon etc. All you need to do is put on a blue t-shirt, grey jacket and pants. And you can easily get rid of the mask whenever you want and still manage to be at your comfortable best.

For the Girls




Scooby Doo cosplays have been extremely popular in the west, but we haven’t seen many Indians try it out. The Daphne costume is easy to recreate and comfortable to wear. You can go a little extra with the hair if you wish to, as red head wigs are easily available in India, but even if you don’t, you will still pull off a Daphne because of the distinct costume!


Daria and Jane


This is the ultimate lazy girl’s guide to dressing up this Halloween. This is also the perfect costume to try if you and your best friend want to cosplay as a pair! You probably won’t even have to head out and shop for this, as it is basic and easy to pull off!


Daenerys Targaryen


Okay, this might seem like a bit of a stretch, especially to Indians. But if you truly are a Game of Thrones fan, then this cosplay will be worth every minute of your effort. Again, the blonde wig is easily available online. You can opt for any flowy pastel coloured dress and still manage to pull a great Daenerys cosplay, cause it’s all in the hair and makeup for this particular character. You will definitely slay your Halloween party with this cosplay.




Everyone’s favourite little girl with superpowers, eleven, is also a Halloween cosplay favourite! Her Stranger Things costume is simple, less time consuming to style and comfortable. You will need a pair of socks, a pink skater dress, a blue jacket and white lace shoes. If you have a pixie cut, this cosplay will look perfect on you! Otherwise, just wear a blonde wig. To add more realness to the look, don’t forget to add some fake blood below your nostril!

And there you have it! Fun cosplay ideas that you can totally try for your Halloween party this year! So, which one of these are you trying?
