My Favorite Godzilla Movie Costumes

So many adults can remember the Godzilla of their youth. In the show about the monster, the popular creature would often battle other monsters and while he was destructive to buildings and other things as he’d sweep his tail around, we also saw Godzilla as a hero of sorts.

The creature has now seen a rebirth in the new movie that bears his name and features a host of talented actors and actresses. The old and new popularity of the creature is why the Godzilla Halloween costume is such a fast selling item.

For the little ones who desire to act as Godzilla when they’re going after Halloween goodies, there’s a perfect costume for them. This costume is made of foam and it’s padded so it’s super comfortable and warm as well.

It has green feet shoe covers that look just like Godzilla’s feet and gives a sense of realism to the costume. One of the things that parents like about this costume is that the Godzilla mask features an open mouth. This enables a child to be able to see easier so less likelihood of tripping and falling.

The lizard-like hands of the costume are attached so those aren’t separate gloves. The tail is also attached and has padding so it has that full look unlike some tails that tend to look a little withered.

Kids aren’t the only ones that get a kick out of dressing up like this character. Adults enjoy it too and just like the kid costume, the adult version features identical stuffing and design except of course, it’s a larger size.

Some people want to choose their own Godzilla body suit and if you can sew, that’s not a bad idea. However, if you’re looking for a realistic version of Godzilla’s face, you’re going to want to buy one. There are some really good, realistic looking masks that you can buy.

One of them is the head and neck of Godzilla and it’s done in the color like you see in the movie. It’s made out of sturdy latex and a lot of artistic attention was paid toward getting the details right.

The outside of the mask has the same ridges and bumps that Godzilla has. It also has the same half-lidded eyes with the lines between them that give the creature his ferocious look. The mouth of the mask is slightly open and you can see a peek of the tongue. But up front are the white, razor sharp teeth.

Best The Lego Movie Costumes Tips

This movie was a laugh out loud fun adventure that features many memorable characters that are perfect for emulating for Halloween. First up is Emmet who in a case of mistaken identity is thought to be the one who has to join a group of other characters to save the world.

The fact that Emmet is not that type of character makes the movie funnier. But Emmet could certainly rule on Halloween. His construction worker costume is a fairly simple one, but definitely stands out.

His costume is an orange pair of pants and top. The top is actually a safety vest and not really a shirt. It has the wide white stripes with a right pocket for holding a pen.

The vee neck vest dips open to show Emmet’s blue, long sleeved, open collar shirt beneath it. Topping the uniform is his bright red hard hat. If you wanted to be really authentic, you could use yellow body paint to color your hands and face to go along with the uniform.

Next up is Wyldstyle. Her costume gives a nod to her tough style shown in the movie. First, at a glance, she’s clad in head to toe black. The bottom of the costume is a pair of plain black pants.

The top is a zippered leather looking hoodie with the hood left hanging down the back. The main decorations on her costume are on the right side. There’s a mixture of blue and kind of pink/mauve design all tangled together almost in a line or slash style.

For the hair, you can either go with a black wig that has the one wide pink and one wide blue stripe, or you can use your natural hair and some of that Halloween hair color spray.

Though there are many versions of the Batman costume like the figurine has in the movie, you can get the same one. This costume is black from head to toe. The starkness of the black is broken only by the background yellow behind the bat emblem and the yellow of the belt. This costume has a cape and a soft hooded mask with the pointed ears. Accessories are available with this costume.

Vitruvius, the wise wizard has a more complicated costume. His costume is a pair of blue pants paired with a shirt that looks almost like a tie-dye shirt. He has a long, flowing white robe with brown tassels at the bottom front.

A blue cape is also part of his costume. To get his long white hair and long white beard look, you can buy these as separate pieces but don’t forget the headband that he wears. If you want to get that white look to the eyes, you can get glasses with white lenses.

The Benny character has a costume that’s a blue jumpsuit with a gray moon logo on the torso. The space helmet has an open front.

Hercules Movie Costumes

When it comes to dressing up for Halloween, picking a costume like Hercules is always a good choice. It’s a masculine outfit that will make the wearer look both muscled and tough.

In order to keep the costume light and comfortable to wear, the Hercules costume uses brown leather to mimic the look of body armor. The leather has gold trimming and plenty of detail so everything looks authentic.

Underneath the leather armor of the costume, you’ll find there’s a white tunic. There’s no leather armor for the back of the costume for your comfort. This lets you sit or stand-whatever you need to do in the costume and allows you to move easily.

Although you won’t have the armor behind you, the costume does come with a red cape so the lack of back armor isn’t noticeable except to you.

The cape is designed to sit around your shoulders and neck so that it falls over the back of the tunic. Like the armor that’s attached to the front of the tunic, the cape is also attached to the rest of the costume.

This can make it easy to slip into without having to struggle to put on several different pieces of the costume. The Hercules outfit can be washed and ironed on a very low heat setting as needed if it wrinkles.

Along with the leather armor, tunic, and cape, the Hercules costume includes a few other accessories to complete the armor and make you look like a true ancient god. The first of these accessories is the forearm bands. These bands are made of brown leather with gold trim.

The second accessory is the bicep bands. The bicep bands match the forearm bands perfectly. They’re easily fastened with velcro. With the costume, you also get a headband that’s designed to be worn on your forehead. To complete the look, shin guards are also included. These guards are made of the same leather and stretch from your calf muscle down to your shins.

Even though you get all those pieces included with the costume, there are still a few accessories you might want to add to your outfit to give it that authentic warrior look. The most common additional accessory that people buy is a sword.

There are many different types of sword props available, so you can grab the one that appeals to you the most. If you plan on carrying your sword around all night, then choose a lightweight one.

Two other common accessories for the Hercules costume are open toe sandals and a Roman helmet with bright red feathers. With these three items, you’ll look and feel like the toughest god around.

Frozen Halloween Costumes – Anna, Olaf, And Elsa

This past year, Frozen was one of the most popular movies for adults and kids alike. Frozen Halloween costumes are going to be some of the hottest costumes for teens and younger kids this Halloween!

Elsa is one of the few main characters of the movie and the Elsa costume is a great one. She wears a really nice light blue dress that is covered with white snowflakes. It looks quite a bit like the dress she wore in the movie while singing “Let It Go”! Any teenage girl will look like a queen since the dress is regal and quite flowy as you move.

To finish out the costume you’ll need a few accessories (that shouldn’t be too costly). Start with a tiara for their crown. Then you’ll want to get some sparkly shoes and some tights in a blue color. If you want to go all out you can find a wig that looks just like Elsa’s hair!

Another of the main characters teens will want to dress up as is Anna – Elsa’s sister. The Anna Halloween costume is pretty easy to find. It’s a really nice dress (just like Elsa’s). The blue dress is darker than the one Elsa wears. For the complete look you’ll need a cape (which comes with the official version of the costume, thankfully). The cape helps the teen or young girl stay warm while trick or treating or going to a Halloween party with friends or family.

You may want to consider a tiara for Anna’s costume as well (though it’s not necessary). There are some nice wigs that match Anna’s hair really well.

To really go all out and finalize both girls’ costumes there are a lot of options for jewelry in the Frozen theme. Amazon has a ton of bracelents and such to choose from.

Olaf is another great character from the Frozen movie. Teenage boys or girls could really dress up as Olaf this year. The Olaf costume is easy to figure out. You’ll need a white jumpsuit with a full hood. Wear either a brown or white t-shirt (with long sleeves) underneath the jumpsuit. You’ll also need some white boots, slippers, or booties to complete the look.

Dracula Untold Costumes – unique vampire costume deals

Like many years, Dracula costumes will be pretty popular this year. Many people don’t know that the Prince Vlad lived in Romania and was given the name Dracula which some say means “Son of Dracul” while others say it means “Son of a dragon.”

Regardless of the meaning, the name Dracula has struck fear in the hearts of people who became acquainted with the name thanks to Bram Stoker’s book from so long ago.

The story of Dracula has been retold many times since the late 1800s. Dracula Untold is one version of such a retelling (I’ve pasted the preview/trailer down below in case you want to see it again)

This is a movie that’s supposed to release close to Halloween and is guaranteed to chase chills up your spine. The creep factor to this movie and character is more fitting with a horror film and dials up the dread so much more than other retellings.

Luke Evans is the actor who plays the character of Vlad Tepes based on Prince Vlad or Vlad the Impaler as he was called. In the movie, it explores the world of Vlad Tepes before and up to him becoming the fearsome character. The movie has a gray, dark tone to the settings as well as with the costumes.

Unlike the cartoonish Dracula costumes you’ll sometimes see on the market, the one worn in the movie is quite stylish. The color of Dracula’s clothes are gray or black starting with the character even before he’s known as Dracula.

As Vlad, the character manages to create an empathetic feel due to his strong feelings for the world he rules and those he cares about. When he’s in character, you’ll find this character’s costume to be dark, long sleeves shirts that look blue-gray in color paired with dark pants.

As Dracula, the costume is a long, flowing black cape similar to the ones you’ve seen in the other Dracula stories. There’s also a button up, dark vest in a silky material – and a neck scarf is worn at times.

Though the character of Dracula does have fangs in this movie, it’s not the fake looking ones from movies past. These look real and very fearsome. You’ll find that some of the Dracula costumes advertise the fangs along with a cape and black boot covers while with other costumes, you have to buy each piece as an individual one.

Another one of the costumes from the movie is a cloak more than a cape. It has large sleeves and is more of a dark gray than black. There’s a gray vest with this one and large black cravat tied in a bow. The white shirt that goes under the vest does not come with this costume.

Despicable Me Costume Ideas – top costume for 2014!

despicable me costumeI really think that Despicable Me costumes will be one of the top costume ideas this year! There are now two hit movies in the past few years and adults and kids alike seem to love the characters (not to mention several games on the iPhone, iPad, and android phones)!

If you’re looking for a costume that’s sure to be a hit, dress up as one of the Despicable Me characters. There are several funny characters that you can choose from. One of the best costumes to buy is one of the Minions. These little guys really helped to make the movie a big hit.

Minion Dave with two eye goggles is just as popular as is Minion Stuart with only one eye goggle. Most of the Minion costumes come as a one piece jumpsuit. You’ll find that the top of the jumpsuit looks like a yellow t-shirt with blue overalls on top. Many of these costumes also include dark gloves and dark socks to complete the look.

When it comes to the eye goggles some Minion costumes will look different. You’ll find that some costumes don’t offer the eye goggles and instead have a hood with the face of a Minion printed on it.

Other costumes will have eye goggles that fit snugly against your face. Both are good options and it depends on the age of the person wearing the costume as to which one is best for you.

If you want to be a Minion but you’re not sure about the jumpsuit costumes, that’s no problem. You can dress up as Minion Dave in a cute foam costume. You’ll get Minion Dave’s face printed on the outfit.

It has holes designed for your head, arms, and feet. You’ll want to add some black socks and shoes to finish up the look. This is one costume that will grab everyone’s attention and win prizes.

If you don’t want to dress up as one of the Minions, you could go as the adorable Agnes from Despicable Me. Like the other costumes, Agnes’ outfit is made of a one piece jumpsuit.

It has a printed striped shirt with blue overalls that are cute. Some of the costumes for Agnes also include a wig, but some don’t. If the one you choose doesn’t, you can always get a black wig and modify it to fit her hairstyle. Don’t forget to carry a unicorn to make sure you accessorize this character.

Another fun character costume is Gru. The Gru mask will make you look just like he did in the movie. It has the long pointed nose and thick eyebrows. There are cutouts in the mask so that you can see out of it.

Some costumes include Gru’s standard wardrobe with the mask and some don’t. If yours doesn’t, you can opt to wear a gray sweater top and striped scarf. For the bottom of the costume, choose black pants and black shoes.

Halloween Costumes For The Hobbit: Battle Of Five Armies

The Hobbit films have a large fan base and the third movie in the series, The Battle of Five Armies, shows the return of some of the favorite characters that people love.

If you’re looking for who to dress up as for Halloween, there are plenty of character costumes to choose from that are patterned after The Hobbit films. The first character costume is Galadriel’s, the royal elf.

Her costume is relatively easy, and also recognizable. It includes a simple white dress with a length that stops at the ankles. The sleeves are short, but the dress comes with the flowing material around the arms that were also seen in the movie so they look bigger.

The dress has a high neckline and the bodice may have simple beading on it. The costume comes with a silver headpiece and may or may not include matching shoes.

The leader of Dwarves, Elves, and men in The Battle of the Five Armies is Thorin Oakenshield. His costume comes with a tabard that has an attached jacket similar to the one worn by Thorin in the movie.

The jacket stops just below the knees and has silver arms and a high collar. The costume includes a belt for the waist and molded armor for the chest and wrists. The costume may also include a beard and mustache similar to Thorin’s and a wig.

The next character is Legolas, the son of King Thranduil. The character costume for Legolas comes with a purple and gray jacket that stops just above the knees. It also includes a dark purple cloak that stops at the ankles and can be tied in the front around the neck.

The costume also comes with boots and a belt. The costume may also include a blond wig with braids near the front that are similar to the braids Legolas has in the movie, but the majority of the costumes are sold without including the wig. The costume may also include a bow and arrows depending on the maker of the costume.

One of the most popular characters in The Hobbit is Gandalf the wizard. His costume is an ankle length robe of dark blue. The sleeves of the robe go down to the wrists and are very loose.

The costume also includes a thin brown belt that can be adjusted around the waist. It also comes with black boots with a slight heel and a gray wizard’s hat with a pointed end.

The costume may also include a curly gray wig with a matching beard that stops mid-chest. The costume does not come with a plastic sword or staff similar to the ones Gandalf is seen with in the movies, so you’ll want to look for that separately.
