Pop Art Inspired Costume Ideas

UPDATED: September 14, 2015

Are you a rebellious spirit? Do you want to show “The Man” you’re not going to conform this Halloween? Then try a Pop Art costume! Pop artists like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol rebelled against tradition by leaving their proverbial marks with dots and bold colors. We will show you many ways to make your own mark this Halloween!



Lichtenstein literally pulled his inspiration right off the pages of comic books. Using his now infamous printer-inspired dots, Lichtenstein created iconic works of art satirizing popular comic books and themes of the time.

Dots can be used to evoke Lichtenstein's artistic spirit for a classic take on a pop art costume.

Andy Warhol, possibly the movement's most famous artist, used everyday objects to create bright and daring pieces of art. You can be just as bold and defiant come All Hollows Eve, by dressing as a banana or a Campbell's soup can!
