Fun Movie-Themed Costumes for Women

  • 533

If you are looking for inspiration for a costume then look to Hollywood and pick out a favorite movie character! 

Sometimes it can be difficult to pick out a costume. So why not dress up as a character you love and everyone will recognize?

Here is a list of easy to find costumes based on characters from popular movies through the years.

The Great Gatsby Costume

From movies to TV shows, there has been a lot of interest in the classic book, "The Great Gatsby" in recent years. It is easy to see why though; part of the reason has to be because the costumes have been dazzling! I think it would be a lot of fun to get a whole group of friends to dress up as flappers together!

Princess Leia Costume

Princess Leia costumes -- a classic, but always a favorite. There will never be a shortage of Star Wars' fans. Plus with more movies coming out in the future you might get to wear this costume multiple times! Get your husband to dress up as a Stormtrooper or Luke Skywalker.

Harry Potter Themed Costume

Nothing new with dressing up in Gryffindor Robes -- although it will always be one of my favorite costumes! If you love Harry Potter but do not want to dress up as Hermione Granger (again!) then try a different and unusual Harry Potter costume -- such as the Sorting Hat, Dobby, or even a scary Dementor!

Grease Costume

If you dress up as Pink Lady from Grease everyone will immediately remember what a great movie this was and then start singing Summer Lovin! There will be a lot of sentimental high school memories and a lot of singing! So do everyone a favor and go ahead pick this one as your costume!

Superhero Costumes

There are so many different superhero costume options for a woman to choose from -- like one of the Avengers, a superhero cartoon like the Incredibles, or classic superheroes like Wonder Woman and Batwoman, and if you don't like any of those then there are even options to dress up like one of the male superheroes!

Disney Princess Costume

Take a trip back to your childhood and pick out your favorite Disney Princess! When you are done with your costume you can keep it for the future to play dress up with your daughter -- best mom ever!

Breakfast at Tiffany's Costume

Who doesn't want to look like Audrey Hepburn? As one of the most beautiful and classy ladies of all time, she is your perfect inspiration for a costume! Dressing up like Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's will be quite recognizable. Plus, you'll gain one more little black dress for your wardrobe!

Wizard of Oz Theme

There is no shortage of characters to choose from when it comes to the Wizard of Oz! Of course, Dorothy is always a popular choice. If you are looking for a less common costume then consider dressing up as Glinda the Good Witch. Or if you are too naughty for Glinda then dress up as the Wicked Witch of West, green face paint and all!

Ghostbusters Costume

With the release of last year's movie, Ghostbuster costumes are not just for men anymore! If you are looking for an idea for you and a couple of friends this is it! Another costume idea from this movie would be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Wearing a costume is fun! But dressing up like your favorite character from a popular movie is even better!
