#10. Harley Quinn

Batman: The Animated Series, Suicide Squad

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Harley Quinn has been one of the most popular female villains for decades. This particular costume is inspired by her original outfit from Batman: The Animated Series, but this Halloween, people are way into her Suicide Squad and Arkham looks as well.

Accessorize: Inflatable hammer, Red heels, Harley Quinn face paint

Group costume ideas: Poison Ivy, Joker, Deathstroke

#9. Baymax

Big Hero 6

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Disney’s Big Hero 6 came out in 2014, but Baymax, everybody’s favorite squishable and huggable robot friend, is one of our favorite trending costume ideas for this year. This Baymax costume is a white, inflatable body suit powered by a small built-in fan.

Accessorize: Soccer ball, Scotch tape dispenser (as seen in the trailer)

Group costume ideas: Armored Baymax, Hiro

#8. Batman

The Dark Knight Trilogy

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

When it comes to superhero costumes, Batman is always part of the conversation about costume of the year. We’re specifically talking about Christian Bale’s Batman costume from The Dark Knight movies, but the Batman: Arkham look is going to big this year, thanks to the release of the Arkham Knight game.

Accessorize: Batarangs, Grappling hook, Gauntlets

Group costume ideas: Batgirl, Robin, Catwoman

#7. Stormtroopers

Star Wars

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is introducing plenty of new characters, from heroes like Rey and Finn to villains like Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma, but the classic Stormtroopers are back, too. Their iconic white armor and helmets make them an essential Halloween costume in our book.

Accessorize: Stormtrooper blaster, White boots, Deluxe Stormtrooper helmet

Group costume ideas: Flametroopers, Boba Fett, Jango Fett

#6. Catwoman

The Dark Knight Rises

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of Selina Kyle – better known as Catwoman – in The Dark Knight Rises is one of our favorite interpretations of the character. Catwoman has switched between being a criminal and a crime fighter several times over the years, but one thing is for certain: the 2004 Catwoman movie was a crime against humanity.

Accessorize: Catwoman wig, Catwoman mask and ears, Knee high boots

Group costume ideas: Vintage 1960s Catwoman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman

#5. Captain America

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Captain America might just be the Avengers member with the best standalone film series. The Iron Man trilogy is higher grossing (so far), but 2014’s The Winter Soldier earned critical acclaim, and we’re expecting Captain America: Civil War to be totally awesome, too.

Accessorize: Captain America shield, Captain America mask, Captain America gloves

Group costume ideas: The Winter Soldier, American Dream, Iron Man

#4. Maleficent

Disney’s Descendants

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Maleficent has always been one of our favorite Disney villains, going back to her debut in the original Sleeping Beauty.  Now, thanks to the newer Maleficent movie starring Angelina Jolie, Disney’s made-for-TV Descendants movie, and rumors about a Maleficent appearance in the upcoming game Kingdom Hearts III, Maleficent is one of the hottest Halloween costumes for 2015.

Accessorize: Vinyl Maleficent horns, Maleficent staff, High heeled boots

Group costume ideas: Ursula, Cruella de Vil, Evil Queen Grimhilde

#3. Black Widow

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

As a master of all forms of hand-to-hand and unarmed combat, Black Widow is probably the strongest femme fatale in all of Marvel Comics. She’s one of the best fighters in the Avengers, too; sorry, Iron Man, but your suit’s really doing all the work for you.

Accessorize: Black Widow batons, Black Widow wig, Combat boots

Group costume ideas: Vintage Black Widow costume, Thor, Hawkeye

#2-1. Darth Vader (Male & Female)

Star Wars

Harley Quinn Halloween Costume for Adults

Is is cheating to combine two costumes for our number one spot? Darth Vader is one of the most popular Star Wars costumes, and since Episode VII The Force Awakens is re-awakening the Star Wars craze, both the male and female Darth Vader costumes are our top picks for Halloween costumes this year.

Accessorize: Red Lightsaber, deluxe Darth Vader helmet, Darth Vader breathing device

Group costume ideas: Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Stormtroopers
