Wonder Woman wasn’t the first female superhero ever, but she’s been one of DC’s marquee characters since the 1940s. As a founding member of The Justice League, Wonder Woman will be featured in the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will star in her own movie in 2017.

Group costume ideas: Supergirl, Batgirl, Catwoman

#9. Minions

Minions & Despicable Me

Minions, the Despicable Me prequel, was one of the biggest movies of 2015 (and inspired one of the biggest Facebook memes, too). That makes Stuart, Kevin, and Bob great Halloween costume choices for anybody. A group of Minions costumes can make for a great family costume idea, as well.

Accessorize: Minion gloves, Minion goggles, Minion leggings

Group costume ideas: Scarlet Overkill, Men’s Minion costume, Minions dress

#8. Queen of Hearts

Alice in Wonderland (sort of)

Who doesn’t love a good visual pun? This costume idea is quite a bit more literal than The Queen of Hearts character from the Alice in Wonderland books and movies, but that just makes it funnier. If you are more interested in that look, though, we’ve got you covered.

Accessorize: Queen of Hearts shoes, Queen of Hearts crown, Playing cards

Group costume ideas: King of Hearts, Lady LuckSexy Queen of Hearts costume

#7. Princess Leia

Star Wars

Rey is the main heroine in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, starting with Episode VII: The Force Awakens, but you just can’t beat the classics. Star Wars VII is spurring a new surge in Star Wars fandom across the board, which makes this sexy Princess Leia costume (and Slave Leia, of course) a top choice for this year.

Accessorize: White boots, Blaster, Princess Leia headband

Group costume ideas: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Jedi Robe

#6. Harley Quinn

Marvel Comics, Suicide Squad

She’s only been around since the ’90s, but Harley Quinn is one of the most iconic comic book villains ever. This Harley Quinn costume is inspired by her original look, from Batman: The Animated Series. Check out this Harley Quinn makeup tutorial to really master the look.

#5. Stormtroopers

Star Wars

Stormtroopers are one constant in every Star Wars film. Captain Phasma is the new lead villainess in Episode VII and she commands a legion of troopers all her own. This sexy Stormtrooper costume is the perfect Halloween costume for any female fans of the franchise.

Accessorize: White heels, Stormtrooper blaster, Deluxe Stormtrooper full helmet

Group costume ideas: Men’s Stormtrooper costume, Captain Phasma, Flametroopers

#4. Darth Vader

Star Wars

…unless you like Darth Vader better. Maybe it’s unfair of us to rank Vader alongside other Star Wars villains – he’s just too good, right? This Darth Vader costume has been designed especially for women, complete with Spandex leggings, detailed armor pieces, and a flowing cape.

Accessorize: Red light saber, Black heelsBreathing device

Group costume ideas: Men’s Darth Vader costume, Kylo Ren, Sith Robe

#3. Catwoman

The Dark Knight Rises

When dressing up like Catwoman for Halloween, there are plenty of different costume options to choose from. This one is Anne Hathaway’s look from The Dark Knight Rises. Then there’s the look Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt made famous in the 1966 TV series. Then there’s the Halle Berry costume from Catwoman, which we don’t speak of.

Accessorize: Combat boots, Catwoman ears and mask

Group costume ideas: Batgirl, Batman, Women’s Robin costume

#2. Maleficent

Disney’s Descendants

Thanks to Disney’s Descendants, as well as the recent Maleficent movie starring Angelina Jolie as the quintessential Disney villain, Maleficent is trendy again. She’s always been one of our favorite villains, ever since Sleeping Beauty, but we like her purple and magenta sorceress robes from Descendants even more.

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

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

#1. Black Widow

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

When it comes to female superheroes, no-one else comes close to Black Widow, for us. Sure, Wonder Woman and Supergirl have the advantages of actual superpowers, but Widow will just flat out beat people up. That, combined with Scarlett Johansson’s stunning portrayals in the Avengers movies makes her our #1 women’s costume pick.

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

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