2010 Movie Costumes

The past year has been a great time to be a movie costume fan, with some great work done on Alice In Wonderland, Ironman 2, Robin Hood and even Toy Story 3. Avatar has also inspired a whole line of Halloween costumes even though it was released last year. Anyone from the cast of Toy Story 3 would make a good Halloween costume idea, and you can also try to mimic some of the less popular characters like Hamm, Rex and Slinky Dog. Alice In Wonderland costumes have also been selling like crazy, and you can’t argue with the coolness of Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter costume.

Lady Gaga Costumes

Love her or hate her, Lady Gaga is known for her outlandish costumes, and you can expect to see lots of people out on Halloween dressed like her. Part of the fun of dressing up like Lady Gaga is that you can try to imitate her exactly, or you can have a little fun and create your own Lady Gaga look. If want to make your own outfit, be sure to add a few Gaga touches like giant sunglasses or straight platinum blonde hair so that people will recognize you.

Comic Book Costumes

Superhero movies like Ironman 2, Spider-Man 3 and Batman: The Dark Knight have helped to make comic book costumes more popular than ever. Kids aren’t the only ones who are hoping to feel super, adult superhero costumes are selling just as well. If you’re looking for a superhero costume but don’t want to dress up just like everyone else, think about looking ahead to next year for great costumes like the Green Hornet, Thor and Captain America.

Disney Costumes

Disney Princesses continue to be a popular choice for adults and kids, and with the release of The Princess and the Frog last year, young girls have even more costumes to choose from. Disney Princesses make great Halloween costume ideas because they’re fun to wear year round and the Disney movies always send a positive message. There are also lots of different versions of each costume available, and if your family wants to dress up together, one person can dress up as the villain and another as Prince Charming.

Lil’ Animal Costumes

Lil’ Animal costumes are specifically for babies, but they’re so cute that it’s worth looking at them anyway. The Lil’ Animals costumes are affordable baby costumes that provide a comfortable fit for your baby in lots of crazy styles like the Lil’ Lobster costume and the Lil’ Wabbit costume.

Still Stumped?

Everyone at Costume City loves the new food costumes that are coming up. Nothing is funnier than showing up to a Halloween party dressed up like a hot dog. Another great Halloween costume idea is to dress up with someone else, giving your costume twice the punch it would have alone. Some cool partner ideas include Hansel and Gretel, Red Robin Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, Batman and Robin, and just about any other famous duo you can think of. You can also pair objects that go together, like a fork and spoon, if you’re looking for quirky
