Whether you aim to scare, or to put a smile on the face of your fellow partygoers, Halloween is a fun excuse to dress up and have a good time. Traditional costumes like vampires, zombies and werewolves are often considered go-to favourites, but what are the best costumes for 2017? Here are a few of our favourites…

Wonder Woman

As one of the most popular films of the year, and the debut of an iconic comic book character on the silver screen, Wonder Woman will certainly be one of the most popular costumes this Halloween. The depiction of the long-standing character by Gal Gadot went down a treat with moviegoers, with many women seeing her as a positive role model too, what more could you want from a costume?


Rewind to 2016, and the rise of the scary clown was well and truly under way, while now, in 2017, with the release of ‘It’ fresh in the memory, it is well and truly here to stay. Pennywise has become of the icons of the year, and has truly terrified a new generation – expect many clowns at your scare-fest this year.


A light favourite to finish on, a unicorn allows you to get creative and fun, with any craft skills coming in handy for any added accessories. For those of you uninspired by clowns, and after something a little bit different, the light-hearted nature of a unicorn is sure to hit the spot.
