#10. Wonder Woman
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.
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.
#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.
#7. Princess Leia
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.
#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.
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.
#4. Darth Vader
…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.
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.
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.
#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.
