5 Classic Adult Halloween Costumes for Any Party

Just because you aren’t trick or treating for your candy anymore doesn’t mean that you don’t love to dress up for Halloween. But, deciding on a costume that’s fun, cool and appropriate for all of your Halloween events this year can be difficult. Luckily, Shindigz has dressed up as your fairy godmother this year, and is ready with a list of five classic, always-appropriate and exciting Halloween costumes for adults – perfect for any office, kids’ party or grown-up party.

#1: Be a (Super) Hero

Who doesn’t want to be a superhero for a day? With so many comic and superheroes becoming well-known nowadays, you can pick the perfect superhero to flatter your figure and your sensibility. Feeling especially super? Break out a cape and dress up as Superman. Have you always dreamed of being the Dark Knight? Try a Batman costume on for size. The possibilities are endless – and are sure to save the day when you’re stumped for costume ideas.

#2: Get Witchy With It

Perhaps one of the most time-honored adult Halloween costume options, the witch costume lets you get in touch with your goth side while dressing in whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Your witch costume can be as simple as adding the iconic pointy hat to your look, or you can go all out with a witchy dress and cape. You’re sure to cast a festive spell at any Halloween fete.

#3: Throwback Thursday – Hippie Edition

Another timeless adult costume idea is to dress up like you’ve just traveled forward in time from the 1960s. Rose-colored glasses, bell bottoms and plenty of peace signs will get your point across perfectly. Not feeling the ‘60s? Costumes from the 1920s, 1950s and 1980s are also instant classic hits for adults.

#4: Arrr….Be a Pirate

Any first mate knows the instant glee that comes with dressing as a pirate, and Halloween is the perfect time to break out your eye patch. A great choice for both men and women, pirate costumes are a classic. Just add a parrot and you’re set!

#5: Dress For Success

When all else fails, there’s no better classic costume than dressing up as someone you admire in real life. Honor our everyday heroes, and look good doing it, with a classic fireman costume.
