The film Jurassic World was kind of a big deal this year, since, you know, it set the all time record for highest box office sales worldwide and all. BUT. Let's be honest: the best parts of Jurassic World were any nostalgic throwbacks and references to the film that started it all...Jurassic Park! JW is shiny and new, but every character, scene, and line of JP is, and forever will be, classic. If you want to be trendy, go ahead and dress as Owen Grady this year. But if you seek to be hailed a "Halloween hero" by fellow late 80s/early 90s babies this Halloween weekend, go with a classic character from Jurassic Park.

Since we at HalloweenCostumes.com love a challenge, we didn't opt for the black leather clad Dr. Malcolm, the jeans and khaki sporting Dr. Grant, or even the white-suited straw-hatted John Hammond. We chose to recreate two costumes worn by the Barbasol blundering, vending machine plundering, inGen underling, Dennis Nedry.

Joker DIY Header

 

You thought Jordan Catalano was the quintessential bad boy? Nope! Jared Leto definitely had a few more tricks up his sleeve as far as portraying mysterious, misunderstood dudes. As soon as the now-famous image of Leto as the Joker, covered in tats and lookin’ a little wild, flew onto the internet shelves, people went nuts. They loved it. They hated it. Whatever they felt, no one could stop talking about it! (Ourselves included.) Re-inspired by the new cover of Empire magazine, we dropped everything to create this Joker makeup tutorial and Cosplay...

Wolverine DIY and Alternate Logan Ideas: Be the Best There Is at What You Do

 

James "Logan" Howlett, better known as Wolverine, is the most iconic character in Marvel’s superhero team the X-Men, and possibly in Marvel comics as a whole. He’s pretty much the leader of the X-Men, if you ignore Scott “Prettyboy-I-Mean-Cyclops” Summers, which you should. (Ooh! Shots Energy beams fired.) What this means is that Wolverine has always been a popular choice when it comes to Halloween costumes. There’s nothing wrong with standard Wolverine costumes, but sometimes it’s fun to set yourself apart, and you can do so with a set of DIY Wolverine claws and a custom hairstyle, or even by designing your own costume based on his more obscure appearances in comics and movies.

Darkwing Duck Halloween Costume DIY

 

You’re not just an average citizen punching the clock every day. You’re the terror that flaps in the night! You’re the batteries that aren’t included! Sometimes, you’re outwitted by a highly intelligent inverse version of yourself, but you always find a way to prevail for the righteousness of St. Canard. And, of course, you regularly yell out your bone-chilling battle cry, “LET’S GET DANGEROUS!”

DIY Scary Mermaid

 

Think about mermaids for a moment. Are you picturing a shy-but-friendly woman/fish-hybrid right out of Splash or The Little Mermaid? Or maybe even that string of direct-to-video movies starring Barbie? (Which begs the question: can a doll truly “star” in a movie?) If so, you’re not alone, because these mythical creatures are often portrayed as mysterious but ultimately good at heart. But this hasn’t always been the case! For much of history, “mermaids” were seen as terrifying creatures, having been blamed for luring sailors to their watery deaths or the disappearance of entire ships! Now if that’s the type of scary mermaid you’d like to dress as for Halloween or Cosplay, keep reading to see how we did it! And stick around for tips on what to do (if anything) if you have a broken bone or other injury at Halloween.

Bojack Horseman and Princess Carolyn Couples Costume DIY

 

What came first, the creepy horse mask or BoJack Horseman? We like to think that's a theological question better reserved for the philosophers. After all, the talking horse has been a bit of a spirit animal in pop culture dating as far back as Mr. Ed and however many tons of peanut butter the poor beast chewed throughout his career. No matter the origins, or our strange fascination with talking horses, the Netflix original hit BoJack Horseman made an immediate impact on an adult-themed cartoon universe. Competing with other big names like Family Guy, Rick and Morty, or really anything else you'll find on Fox or Adult Swim, it's the kind of show that makes immediate sense on an entirely offbeat and sarcastic level.

For anyone unfamiliar with the show, we follow a washed-up, 90s sitcom dad through trial and tribulation as he struggles to find purpose in a world that outgrew the days of cheesy sweaters and soft piano themed "touching moments" wrapped nicely with a 30-minutes-solves-everything bow. (Think of the end of every Full House ever and you get the idea.) Slightly depressed, very foul-mouthed, entitled, and all around lost, you somehow still find a way to love poor old BoJack as he gropes his way through a world that outgrew him, and yet, that desperately hopes he lands back on his feet.

If you are a fan of the show, you just might be considering a BoJack Horseman couples costume this year. But being a human and all, the task may seem a bit daunting at first. Fear not, long-faced friend, this BoJack and Princess Carolyn couples costume guide will be sure to give you what you need.
