Summertime was filled with blockbuster movies featuring tough, female superheroes like “Wonder Woman” and, most recently, the remake of the Stephen King’s horror novel “IT”. So it’s no surprise many of this fall’s Halloween costume ideas are inspired by movies, hit television shows like “Game of Thrones,” and more. Whether you’re attending a costume party Han Solo on all Hallow’s Eve or have the itch to dress up with your significant other, these trending costume ideas will be a huge event no matter where you trick-or-treat this season.
The classic horror novel written by Stephen King was once again adapted for film this year. So it’s no surprise one of the most popular costumes for Halloween this season is none other than the creepy, drain dwelling clown himself, Pennywise. Now, there are two ways to dress up as the infamous clown this hallow’s eve. Go with the classic 1986 depiction of IT with its blue and white ruffled neckline and yellow clown suit complete with puffy orange balls down the chest. Or, horror fans could sport IT’s new look in the 2017 remake where Pennywise takes on a much more sinister feel with extremely creepy makeup, and gray and red ruffled clown attire. Either way, don’t forget to carry a few balloons to pass out to passersby come nightfall for that extra spooky factor because, “We all float down here.”
