Halloween Movie Costumes to Dress Up as - Fancydress.com

Autumn is drawing in and there’s only one event in the calendar that’s on the mind – and it’s our favourite! Get into the spirit of Halloween and dress up! Are you lacking inspiration for your spooky your wardrobe this year? We’ve put together a list of Halloween movie costumes that are sure to be scary and iconic!


The Addams Family

With a new animated adventure, we’re here to deliver you Addams family costumes for the whole family! These gothic and relatable outcasts hold a place in pop culture forever. Many of us relate to their cynical sayings and quotes on the daily. Choose a hilarious outfit like our Cousin Itt or Morticia Addams costume. How about the rest of the family, for example, Gomez, Wednesday and Uncle Fester? Halloween movie costumes have never been so spooky, ‘ooky and altogether kooky!


Chucky from Child’s Play

Yes, you heard it right. The Good Guys doll gone bad is back again with a brand new remake. With a story refresh including the introduction of ‘Buddi’ connecting to a smartphone, this story is now more frightening. This Chucky doll still has the iconic blue dungarees and striking ginger hair. We’ve got an updated selection of Chucky costumes for men and women, including a mask! Time to play!


The Joker

Joaquin Phoenix hit the big screen with an all-new movie starring one of Gotham’s baddest villains. This story explores how the Joker became the criminal mastermind that he is known for today. Despite not falling into the category of ‘Halloween’, it sure is sinister and a great Halloween movie costume option! Joker costumes are a look that will be recreated each year at Halloween. How could we not include it with this new look?! Apply this new makeup look and show off your new threads like you’re fresh from Arkham State Hospital!


Doctor Sleep


One of the latest horror films is a movie based on Stephen King’s The Shining Sequel: Doctor Sleep. Ewan McGregor plays Danny Torrance and we’re expecting a full resurgence of The Shining Twins costumes at Halloween parties across the globe.


Maleficent 2

Back to the big screen is Angelina Jolie reprising her iconic role as Maleficent. This tale brings a newer and fresher costume with wings, which can easily be added to our Maleficent costume! Simply whip on a full-blown outfit or DIY with a cape, dress and some demonic horns!
