Awesome Pop Culture-Inspired Halloween Costumes 2017

It’s time to start planning awesome Halloween costumes for 2017. TV studios have been particularly kind to those who are costume-inclined this year. Check out our list below for 7 Awesome Pop Culture-Inspired Halloween Costumes for 2017. And if you should happen to try any of these, please, please share a photo with us on InstagramFacebook, Twitter, or in the comments below.

  1. A Handmaid – The Handmaid’s Tale
    This one is actually easier than you might think. Grab a vibrantly red (but very modest) long dress from a second hand store, and order yourself a bonnet to match. Advanced Handmaid’s can use poster board to create the full bonnet as seen on the iconic show. Here are a few versions of the costume to inspire your rebellion. Blessed be the fruit.

  2. A Dragon – Game of Thrones
    Are you excited that Winter has finally come? What better way to celebrate than to channel your enthusiasm into an easy dragon costume for Halloween? This great blog has instructions on how to make no-sew dragon wings so that you can take flight against the white walkers or the Lannisters. You may not look as fearsome as Drogon, Rhaegal, or (gulp) Viserion, but you’ll inspire enough awe with how little time it took you to pull together this look. Dracarys!

  3. Diana Prince – Wonder Woman
    Flex your amazonian muscles in a Wonder Woman costume this year. This video from Mashable gives a method for a DIY version that isn’t super simple, but doable for those inclined to spend some time with vinyl fabric. You can also do a simple version with a graphic t-shirt and a pair of cuffs (for deflecting bullets, of course). Merciful Minerva!Halloween Costumes for 2017
  4. Redshirt – Star Trek: Discovery
    Gene Roddenberry’s universe is coming back to TV for the first time in 12 years, and we expect to see many a redshirt (or even better Lieutenant Commander Michael Burnham) on October 31st. Here’s a super cute version for little kids. Live long and prosper!

  5. Wrestler – GLOW
    There is never a bad time to bust out truly huge 1980s hair and high-cut leotards. The characters in the Netflix Original show are based on a real group of pretty awesome women, and you can honour them with your Zoya the Destroya costume. Totally rad!Halloween Costumes for 2017
  6. Your Favourite Overwatch Character

This cosplay site offers links to kits that will give you a spot-on look for any of these striking characters (we’re team Symmetra and team Lucio).

Best Reasons to Love Fall in Canada

The end of summer is a sad time – farewell to warm sun, blue skies, and bare feet. Many Canadians wait all year for the summer months, and quick as a flash, it’s over. But don’t worry! Before winter descends, we’ve got fall – the most beautiful, colourful season of them all. There’s lots to look forward to – here are our favourites.

5 On-Trend Costumes Ideas for Halloween 2015

Inside Out

Pixar is brilliant at creating adorable characters than children want to emulate. But Inside Out is going to be great fun for adults too! Get a crew together to represent Joy, Sadness, and Disgust (and Anger and Fear too!). There are makeup tutorials available here.

Taylor Swift with her squad

Being the year of Taylor Swift, it’s inevitable that there will be countless Taylor Swift costumes out there. But this one is extra fun. Once you’ve got your sparkly dress and high heels and red lipstick, attach a bunch of dolls to your belt to represent your squad (you can even add a Ken-doll Calvin Harris!).


#thedress Halloween Costume

It’s been a while since the internet was swept with #thedress, but it won’t take much for people to be reminded. Was it black and blue or white and gold? Find two dresses and sew them together (half and half!) or make it a partner costume, each representing one version. You can also go all-out and order this one online.


Emoji Halloween Costume
Emojis have been a popular Halloween costume for awhile, but with the new keyboard being released on iOS this year, there are plenty more to impersonate! Get a group of girls with multiple colours of hair & skin to wear pink shirts and represent the sassy girl emoji, or rep the costume classics – the salsa dancer and the twinning girls.

Donald Trump

This is an easy one. All you need is a suit, a red tie, and some really bad hair.
