Best Halloween Costume Ideas – 50 Best Clothes That Make Monsters!




Dark, weird, funny and scary – with the 50 best Halloween costume ideas, you’ll be terrifyingly well equipped for every Halloween party! 😉

Do you have the devil in you? Or have you always wanted to stagger around as a zombie like in the cult series Walking Dead – or wear a really unusual eye-catching costume for Halloween instead of one of the “horror classics”.

Halloween, the most gruesome night of the year on 31 October, is no longer just celebrated enthusiastically by children and adults in America. We Germans also love horror, creepiness and terrible goose bumps and celebrate accordingly until the dead awake!

One thing is certain: the night of horror is one of the best occasions of the year to get dressed up. At Halloween parties, it’s a must to show up in an ingenious costume – and absolutely every Halloween party thrives on creative Halloween costume ideas that create atmosphere. And honestly – who wouldn’t want to slip into the skin of the most fruity monster on earth? Or a seductive vampire, an elegant undead noblewoman or the nastiest witch ever? 😀

The most important thing about a Halloween costume is that you feel comfortable in it and that it somehow suits you. It’s also very popular to show up at the party with your better half in a partner costume and spread fear and terror in a double pack. If you don’t wear a full face mask for your Halloween costume, you can add the finishing touches with make-up.

There are great complete costumes that will definitely leave a lasting impression: whether as a grinning horror clown, a pale ghost bride, a sexy skeleton in a super-tight morphsuit, Chucky the murder doll, a blood-splattered creepy butcher, a scary alien or an escaped inmate of an insane asylum.

But even for little money, with a mask, cape or accessories and make-up, you can turn a terrible normal party outfit into a gloriously horrible and original Halloween costume. For creative people with time on their hands, this can be done easily – but for everyone else, there are also inexpensive Halloween accessories and costumes to buy.

Tip: What you definitely shouldn’t skimp on is good make-up! For best results, we recommend theatre make-up and normal beauty products such as kajal, eye shadow, eyebrow pencil, lipstick and mascara, e.g. from DM.

Here are our top 50 ideas for Halloween costumes! If your fingers tickle and you buy one right away via one of the amazon links, you are supporting us without the product costing you a single cent!
