Halloween is that fun time of the year where young and old dress up in great costumes and scare the bejesus out of each other. Some Halloween costumes are fun and cute while others can give you nightmares.
As there are so many costumes and categories to choose from, I decided to go with actual phobias rather than just your typical monster or ghoul. Clowns and jesters are meant to be funny, whilst priests and nuns are meant to be saintly. Thanks to Hollywood, that’s all changed!
Given that clowns and nuns actually have phobias named after them, “Coulrophobia” for clowns and “Sphenisciphobia” for the fear of nuns, it’s easy to see why Hollywood has run with the idea of murderous clowns, psychotic jesters, possessed nuns and zombie priests.
Sticking with this theme, here are 10 of the best Halloween costumes and masks for men and women. And if you’re a couple dressing to match each other – when it comes to Halloween costumes, these ideas will do the trick.
Men’s Halloween Costumes
Women’s Halloween Costumes
If you’re just shopping for masks, try to get one that’ll match something you already have in your wardrobe and can repurpose as a Halloween costume. For instance, the American Horror Story Asylum Nun Mask from above – all you need is a white or black dress and voilà.
Most importantly, remember it’s all about the makeup. So, if a mask isn’t covering your face, make sure your face scares as much as your outfit does. Shop all your Halloween makeup, wigs and accessories from Costume Box and Costumes.com.au and earn Cashback.
Tip: Do you need a few good Halloween movies to put you in the mood? Watch Stephen King’s IT (2017), The Nun, The Exorcist and of course Halloween! Or watch the American Horror Story (AHS) series, and that will work a treat.
Have fun and happy Halloween!
