Halloween 2022 is coming fast, and if you haven’t already, now is the time to start preparing your costume. Movie and TV-themed costumes have been all the rage for a while, so read on below for five great trendy Halloween 2022 costume ideas that aren’t the basic witch or pirate.
Barbie and Ken
Kicking things off is one of the most popular options for a couples costume in 2022, Barbie and Ken. The new Barbie movie featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken is slated to come out next July and is sure to make this a fantastic costume combo. This costume is easy to pull off by just wearing Barbie and Ken’s trademark pink and blue, and maybe adding a bleach blonde wig or two.
Superhero or supervillain costumes
2022 has been a big year for both Marvel and DC superhero movies, and they’ve brought in a slew of trendy superhero and villain costume ideas. Several great Marvel-themed costumes based on 2022 movies include Thor, Morbius, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Dr. Strange.
More of a DC fan? There are plenty of excellent superhero costume options for you as well. Major DC characters that are sure to be trendy costume picks this year include Shazam, Batgirl, Batman, and the Riddler, who have each had new films this year. For bonus points, try out a Black Adam costume since Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s addition to the DCEU comes out on October 21.
Stranger Things and the Hellfire Club
Season four of Netflix’s Stranger Things was one of the most talked-about productions in 2022 and provided several iconic characters that make perfect Halloween costumes. With a retro police chief or state trooper outfit, you can go as Hawkins police chief Jim Hopper, or with a gaudy sailor’s outfit, you can go as Steve Harrington working at Scoops Ahoy.
To go as one of the members of Hawkins’ local D&D club, “The Hellfire Club,” simply purchase one of the many Hellfire Club t-shirts available online and rock it with your best ‘80s jeans and sneakers. To take the costume even further, buy a denim vest and a long curly brown wig to go as Joseph Quinn’s Eddie Munson, one of the most loved additions to the Stranger Things cast this season.
Carmy Berzatto from The Bear
FX’s show The Bear has been one of the biggest breakout hits of 2022, largely thanks to its lead protagonist Carmy Berzatto. The award-winning chef who comes home to save his family’s Chicago sandwich shop sports a simple white t-shirt and black jeans with a blue apron, which makes this a simple and affordable but recognizable Halloween costume. The best part is you can keep everything in the costume for regular everyday wear!
The Sanderson Sisters
If your Halloween plan this year includes a girls’ night out, try dressing up as the iconic Sanderson Sisters from the Hocus Pocus franchise. With a few over-the-top robes and wigs, you can bring Winifred, Mary, and Sarah Sanderson to life with a costume combo that’s perfect following Hocus Pocus 2’s release last week.
