Halloween 2017 Costume Inspiration

If you haven’t thought about it yet, you should: Halloween is a month away, and it’s time to put a costume together! While we don’t carry pre-made costumes, our collection of over two million unique items is sure to have the perfect piece to build on or complete a costume. Whether you’re attending a monster mash yourself, or trying to help out a little ghoul, check out some of these clothing categories for some creative costume inspiration:


Body Suits

Body suits are the perfect foundation for just about any women’s costume, and we have over 2,000 unique designs to spark your Halloween fun. Whether you need a simple, affordable black leotard or a bright neon yellow bodysuit to stick out, we’ve got you covered. Heck, you might even find one that can be a costume as is!

Body suit costume ideas: Cat/Leopard/Cheetah, 80s Fitness/Dance Instructor, Mermaid, Roller Derby Gal

Leather Jackets

While our collection of men’s and women’s leather jackets isn’t quite as extensive as our bodysuits, the chance to score a leather jacket for an affordable price is one you can’t pass up! Pro tip: sometimes leather vests end up in this category as well. Locking down a solid leather jacket or vest can open up a huge amount of Halloween options.

Leather Jacket costume ideas: Greaser, Sons Of Anarchy Biker, Ghost Rider, James Dean/Bad Boy, The Fonz

We know you’re most likely NOT attending a Halloween pool party. Still, don’t underestimate the usefulness of swimwear as a costume accessory. We sell swimwear sets, as well as individual bottoms and tops. We carry hundreds of these for under $5, so you won’t feel bad altering it with glue/decorations, only if you wear it just once!
