The Orange List: Top Halloween Costumes

The Orange List: Top Halloween Costumes

For the last few weeks, we’ve been showing off different lists of the best Halloween costumes. There’ve been zombie costumes, funny costumes, and even dog costumes.

We’re still going to be talking about new costume themes in the future, but today is Orange Tuesday, so we’re doing something special – these are the top trending and most popular costume styles, period. Read on to discover the Top 10 Halloween Costumes for 2014!


1. Elsa Costume

We’re not surprised either – Frozen is the highest grossing animated movie of all-time (even the soundtrack charted at #1!), and Frozen costumes are just about the hottest costume theme ever. This cool blue Elsa dress is perfect for any little girl who wants to be Princess for a Day, but there are plenty of adult styles, too.

2. Leonardo Costume

Have you seen the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie? We can’t get enough of the Turtles (we even made a gnarly infographic on the subject), so we’re happy to see the younger generation still loves them as much as we do. As with Elsa and Frozen, Leonardo is just one of many TMNT costumes, but they’re all awesome.

3. Black Widow Costume

Sexy skin suits are always a top choice for women’s costumes, and Black Widow just takes it to a whole other level. This style is actually from Widow’s appearance in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Solider. In other words, she beat out Captain America for the title of most popular superhero in his own movie! (She is a little bit more – shall we say – aesthetically pleasing than the Captain, anyway.)

4. Green Ninja Costume

Yes, Greninja from Pokemon is going to be in the newest installment of Super Smash Bros. We’re talking about a Green Ninja though. What little boy doesn’t love pretending to be a super-stealthy, sword-wielding, shuriken-hurling hero? That’s why this ninja costume is our Number 4.

5. Captain America Costume

We’ve got a little Captain in us! Actually, a lot of Captain (seriously, this costume has a ton of styles). Black Widow is epic, but you knew she wasn’t going to keep Captain America completely out of the spotlight. It’s the best superhero costume for men!

6. Joker Costume

Why so serious? Take on the role of the most villainous villain of all! This costume is modeled after the look created by the late and great Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. As far as villain costumes go, this is the tops.

7. Dorothy Costume

You’re not in Kansas anymore, you’re in the magical world of (it’s slightly more magical than Oz)! For kids and adults, Dorothy costumes and Wizard of Oz costumes are some of the most popular fairytale and storybook costumes, by far. Adding a pair of ruby red slippers completes the ensemble!

8. Female Darth Vader Costume

“Luke – I am… your mother?” Star Wars costumes are classic, and they’re hugely popular every Halloween. Now, there’s finally a Darth Vader option for the female fans. The force is strong with this one!

9. Pink Poodle Toddler Costume

Everyone say it with us – “Awww!” Have you ever seen a cuter Halloween costume for toddlers than this? If you’re a new, proud parent, it’s your responsibility to dress up your child in silly Halloween costume before they become “too cool” for trick or treat.

10. Where’s Waldo Woof Costume

Everyone say it with us again – “Awwwww!” Dress up your best friend just like Waldo’s dog, Woof. We’re not sure if the glasses or the hat are more adorable, but they’ll make your dog much easier to find!
