Wall-E

Dressing as Disney’s lovable robot is instantly cooler when the costume collapses—as Wall-E does—into an unassuming box. How cute!

Tourist and His Camera

At first glance, this duo is nothing more than a boring tourist and his lifesize camera. But when the camera works, printing digital photos like a human Polaroid camera, they become the perfect party guests—unique and useful!

Tippi Hedren (The Birds)

No Hitchcock costume is complete without the Master of Suspense’s bloodthirsty details—the raven holding Tippi’s eyeball provides an chilling visual of avian violence.

Marie Antoinette

Becoming history’s greatest fashionista requires a stylish eye, but what’s most sriking about this costume isn’t the gorgeous dress—it’s the elaborate wig with miniature battleship on top! I can only imagine how heavy that must have been …

Giant Trojan Rabbit (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

One of Monty Python’s great sight gags? Check. Silly English knights? Check. Ready to storm the French castle? Check. I fart in your general direction!

Gaping Hole in Torso

Don’t risk treat-or-treating on an empty stomach—you might end up like this guy! Using a portable DVD player strapped to his front and a digital camera on his back, he creates the impressive illusion that he has a gaping hole in his torso.

Dragon Man

Can’t choose between Lord of the Rings or Wolf Man? Take a cue from this half-fantasy, half-horror creation. Razor sharp dragon scales cast an intimidating figure, sure to give little trick-or-treaters quite a fright!
