Wonder Woman Costumes
It’s all too easy to just go ahead and call 2017 the year of Wonder Woman. The smash hit feature film starring Gal Gadot took the world by storm, and if that wasn’t quite enough, Wonder Woman’s coming back for an encore with Justice League in November. So, for all women everywhere, your first, second, and third choice for Halloween should be a Wonder Woman costume! Our favorites for 2017 include the brand new Wonder Woman movie costume, as well as a fantastic dress costume inspired by the classic comic book styles. For a little lady, choose a girl’s Dawn of Justice costume, or a classic comic book style for her and she’ll be ready to do battle with the baddies or just rule the local trick-or-treat scene. We have a huge selection of costumes inspired by the Amazing Amazon, so no matter which one you choose in 2017, you’re going to be celebrating the year of Wonder Woman in style!
Winnie the Pooh Costumes
With millennials coming of age, 80s nostalgia is a prime choice for 2017. So why not relive your childhood with some Winnie the Pooh costumes? We have exclusive Winnie the Pooh costumes that are brand new for 2017, and they’re ready to bring the whimsical classic tales to life for you and your friends! Our group of Pooh pals had a grand old time at the 100 Acre Wood when they suited up in our jumpsuit costumes, and you can tackle whatever kind of Halloween activity you’d like when you do the same. Tigger considers his group pounced, even though Eeyore’s a little bummed out. But Piglet’s still got a big smile, right along with Pooh! Suit up all your friends for a great 80s group theme, or just find yourself a honey pot and become the coolest Winnie the Pooh to be found. They’ll be no reason to say “Oh, bother” when you’ve got a costume this sweet!
Beauty and the Beast Costumes
Disney’s live adaptation of Beauty and the Beast dominated the box office in 2017, so why not celebrate the Disney magic and choose a “tale as old as time” for your 2017 costume? Girls as well as grown-up women can choose to be Belle, the classic Disney character who was brought to life by Emma Watson. Any child will love trying out the “provincial life” in our girl’s Belle village dress costume, and we carry an adult version for grown up fans as well! Of course, most women are going to want to attend the ball for two in Beast’s castle, so you might want to try our brand new deluxe Belle ball gown costume. Dance your best Waltz with your partner in our Beast Costume, and you might even find something that “wasn’t there before.” You know what we’re talking about… a really great time on Halloween! For a larger group theme, consider getting a strapping man to dress up as Gaston to portray the pompous character, and if you’ve got a little guy along for the fun, you could dress him in a Chip costume to round out the ensemble.
Alice in Wonderland Costumes
If you're going entirely bonkers trying to figure out the best costume idea for 2017, Alice in Wonderland costumes are a fine choice no matter how mad you might be. Gaze through the looking glass and see if Alice, the Mad Hatter, or the Queen of Hearts might be the right suit. These costumes are great for couples as well as a fun idea for the whole family because there are many styles to choose from. Even if you don't plan to jump down any rabbit holes, pretending to be from Wonderland is a popular Halloween choice for many. Grab an exclusive "Eat Me" purse to compliment the costume and give you a unique look sure to help you compete for the best Halloween costume of 2017. (Full disclosure: the purse does not come with magic powers so please don't eat it, it probably doesn't taste very good.)
Star Wars Costumes
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be dropping just after Halloween 2017, and all the favorites from The Force Awakens are slated to appear in the brand new installment of the Star Wars franchise. So, they all make a really great choice for 2017 Halloween costumes! We have the classic Rey costume for any woman who’s ready to grab a lightsaber, and also a deluxe Finn Stormtrooper costume that’s new for 2017! Our kid’s Kylo Ren costume is always ready for action (and even a temper tantrum or two) and also new for 2017 we have an adorable BB-8 toddler costume. Reunite your band of Resistance Fighters to have the most fun at the party, or pledge allegiance to Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order and plan something slightly more diabolical. Whatever costume you choose, when you continue the action of the new Star Wars episodes, you’re going to be doing your part to save the galaxy (or at least make the Halloween party much more exciting)!
This isn't a booby trap – Goonies costumes are really happening! It's likely that Halloween night won't take you on a quest to find One-eyed Willy's treasure or have you on the run from the Fratellis, but a kid can dream, right? Admit it, you've done the truffle shuffle a time or two. We have all wished at one point that we could've rode the epic cave water slide and plummeted in the water where the pirate ship and treasure were located. To this day, many people who grew up watching the Goonies still yearn for that sense of adventure and still feel so connected to the characters they watched countless times. If you haven't settled on your Halloween costume for 2017, a Goonies costume will get you one step closer to your childhood dream. New 2017 costumes include Data, Mouth, Chunk, Andy, and even Sloth. Baby Ruth anyone?
Game of Thrones Costumes
Winter has arrived in Westeros, and with it, the pulse-pounding action of season 7 of Game of Thrones. It’ll be a couple years before the series wraps up, so 2017 is the perfect time to go as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen for Halloween. They finally got to meet this season on the show, and this is one of the top 2017 costume ideas for couples! Our Dark Northern King costume works really great if you’re planning on becoming King of the North, and if you team up with a lady friend as the Mother of Dragons in our exclusive Dragon Queen costume, you’ll be the go-to pair of rulers in Westeros. If you’ve got a little one, suit them up in our toddler wolf costume to portray Jon’s trusty direwolf Ghost, and you will truly be prepared to face Winter, and whatever bad guys come with it! It’s going to be hard to find a pop culture phenomenon that will be more relevant for 2017 than a Game of Thrones costumes, so valar dohaeris!
DC Superhero Girls
Little ladies everywhere are all about the hit DC Superhero Girls franchise. With web shorts and plenty of toys highlighting the adventures of young DC comic book superheroes, we’re not surprised that these classic characters are winning over brand new fans! The franchise got on everyone’s radar in 2016 and is sure to be one of the top 2017 Halloween costume ideas. So, if your girl is looking for a hip and current look, just choose one of these costumes! She can learn to harness the golden lasso as Wonder Woman, or be a little more mischievous as Harley Quinn. If she’s planning on saving the day, Supergirl is always a great choice, but she could also be Batgirl if hailing from Gotham City is more her style! Whichever character she chooses, we’re sure she’s going to love pretending to be a student at Superhero High, especially when her schoolmates join her by going in this group theme!
When pop culture and the costume world crash into each other, well, that’s the kind of stuff we live for! The inflatable T-Rex costume from Jurassic World went viral when video after video of hilariousness got uploaded to YouTube, and costume manufactures have responded with brand new inflatable costume styles that are sure to become the newest hit sensation. For barnyard fun, an inflatable cow costume would be pretty hard to beat. Hippos Ballerinas got pretty popular in 2017 too, so you can choose to tap into that fun with our brand new inflatable Hippo costume. Our ride-an-ostrich inflatable costume has been a top seller for the past few seasons, so it’s sure to be a great choice in 2017, or to mix it up, choose our pick-me-up alien inflatable costume to create your own faux alien abduction! Of course, that classic T-Rex costume is still a great choice, too. Whether you’re looking to make your own viral video or just make an over-the-top impression at your Halloween party, any of our air-powered costumes are sure to leave a large-and-in charge impression!
Plants vs. Zombies
Another brand new choice for this year is our line of Plants vs. Zombies costumes. One of the top Halloween costume ideas for 2017, these cool styles haven’t been seen before anywhere else. Why’s that? Because we made them! We teamed up with Electronic Arts to create these styles, which means they’re officially licensed. And we make our costumes to stand the test, so you can ensure round after round of Plants vs. Zombies action when you suit up in one of them! We have the Peashooter costume available in child and adult, to go along with the kid’s Zombie costume or the adult version. (Sunflower costume coming soon!) Team up with your best bud or archnemesis in these costumes, and we’re sure it will be all the video game action you can handle!
Harry Potter Costumes
Ok, not a brand new selection, but 2017 marked the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone making it to print. So, this year is as prime as ever to choose a Harry Potter theme, and it’s definitely at the top of the list of 2017 costumes ideas for families. Our Harry Potter family is ready to cast all the spells they can handle. We’ve got an adult and junior version of Harry Potter for good measure, Luna Lovegood looks smashing in her adult Ravenclaw robe, and we’ve got our little lady all done up in a kid’s Hermione costume to get the group theme on lock.
