Are you looking for some inspiration for your Halloween costume? Do you want to look like a character from pop culture? Let us help you out! We have some great costume ideas for classic Halloween characters as well ones that are popular this year. Also, we discuss dressing up as a pop culture D&D icon! With these characters, we hope to give you some great ideas on how you can dress to impress as a pop culture character this Halloween!
Pop Culture Classic Costumes
Let’s start with a couple of pop culture costume classics: Beetlejuice and Wednesday Addams. For Beetlejuice, the name of the game is black-and-white stripes. For this character, we suggest wearing something like the Gothic Striped Pirate Jacket along with striped pants like the Captain Clegg Striped Pants. Don’t forget to wear a white shirt underneath like the Formal White Victorian Shirt. To finish off the look, you can wear some black boots like the Classic Combat Boots.
For the unforgettable Wednesday, start with a simple black dress like the Priestess Dress. Wear a high-collared shirt underneath like the High Collared Elizabethan Blouse. Together, they create the striking contrast found in Wednesday’s iconic black and white look. Finish off the costume with a pair of black shoes.
Popular Pop Culture Costumes This Year
This year, there are a wide range of hot pop culture characters for you to dress up as. You can even give them a slightly more medieval flair. For example, you can dress up as a medieval Doctor Strange. To start, you could pair the Carl Canvas Tabard or the Loki Viking Coat with the Wolfram Premium Cotton Tunic, both in blue. On the bottom, you can wear the Airship Steampunk Trousers, which come in blue and navy blue.
In addition, you should wear a red cape like the Bron Canvas Cloak or Vampire’s Cloak. You can also accessorize your Doctor Strange costume with a pair of boots or a belt. Finally, do not forget about Strange’s Eye of Agamotto. You could wear the Eye of Providence Necklace to match.
Another pop culture character to dress up as this year is the fierce Ahsoka Tano. For this fierce Jedi, start with the clothing. We put the Wool Cloak with Mantle in grey, the Ketill Canvas Pants in black, and the Black Midnight Breanna Bodice together with arm and leg wraps in black. Also, you can wear the Rasmus Collar and the Assassin Belt with Skirt, both in black. Along with them, add on the Leather Samurai Bracers and the Wanderer Boots. You could finish off the outfit with the Isidor Studded Leather Crown. If you want to look even more like Ahsoka, then don some Epic Effect makeup in orange and white.
For a third pop culture character that is highly popular this year, let’s look at Daemon Targaryen. This character wears a variety of looks. For this one, we took inspiration from his outfit from Laena’s funeral. We combined the Black Jules Long Leather Jerkin with the Leomar Canvas Shirt in black. On the bottom half, you can wear the Kasimir Canvas Trousers in black with the Beowulf Leather Belt. Finish off the look with the Laced Medieval Boots. These characters are very popular this year, perfect for your Halloween costume.
Pop Culture D&D Characters
If you are a Dungeons and Dragons fan and want to dress up as a D&D character for Halloween, never fear. There is definitely a pop culture character for you. One of our favorites is Jester Lavorre from the popular D&D series Critical Role. For this popular tiefling, there are a lot of pieces to put together to get her distinctive look. We started with the Medieval Chemise Dress, the Elvish Fantasy Battle Skirt in blue, Tilda Herringbone Rus Pants in black, and the Outlaw Corset.
Layered over that, we have the Brown Three-Way Sword Belt and the Niko Mantle Cloak. To finish off the base outfit, we have the Leather Celtic Gloves and the Captain Jack Boots. The Distressed Leather Traveler Journal makes a great side accessory. Finally, to truly complete the look and make you look like Jester, you can combine some Epic Effect makeup with the Brown Dragon Horns and the Epic Effect Small Dark Elf Ears Prosthetic.
If you want to dress up as your D&D character for Halloween or at any other time of year, we have some articles on that as well. You can dress up as any of the various character classes.
