Suicide Squad Halloween Costumes from HalloweenCostumes.com

If Comic-Con 2016 is anything to go by then this year we’ll be seeing a whole lot of Suicide Squad Halloween costumes, especially Margot Robbie’s version of Harley Quinn.

Although superheroes are great to dress up as when you’re a kid there’s something fun about dressing up as a super villain that many adults enjoy and that’s where these Suicide Squad costumes come into their own.

The looks that the 2016 blockbuster movie has brought to these characters have given them a punkish street edge look that I think is awesome so let’s have a look at some of these super villains.

The main Suicide Squad characters are The Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Katana & Croc Killer.  Dress up as any member of the squad or use this as a great idea for a group costume.

Suicide Squad Joker Costume

Jared Leto brings the Joker to life in the 2016 Suicide Squad movie and apparently while filming he stayed in character and even scared Scott Eastward a little bit (with Dirty Harry as your dad I’m thinking that’s not an easy thing to do!)

The key to this costume is very pale skin, green hair and some pretty out there tattoos which have already caused the internet to melt as fans reactions have not been in favor of the tattoos.

The costume above includes the red shirt, jacket and pants, but you’ll also need to get a green wig and address those tattoos. If you have a quick look on youtube you’ll see that some people have very successfully recreated the Joker’s pale skin and crazy tattoos, but if you want an easier way to get the look we’ve got you covered with a set of temporary tattoos.

Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Costume

In the movie Harley Quinn moves from her cartoonish red and black traditional costume to a punkier version of Harley Quinn with the combination of red and blue instead. She also sports a pretty nifty baseball bat – what’s with villains and baseball bats?

She still has her pigtails which I think she carries off really well so let’s have a look at Harley Quinn 2016 Suicide Squad version!

 Rubie’s Women’s Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Costume Kit

This costume kit includes the jacket and shirt, to pull off the complete look you’ll also need to do the hair in her cute blonde pigtails with the pink and blue dye on alternate pigtails.   Some of her jewelry would also add to the look along with the kick ass shoes she wears.

Let’s not forget her baseball bat adorned with the words Good Night!

Suicide Squad Deadshot Halloween Costume

Brought to life by Will Smith in the 2016 movie Deadshot is decked out in red and black as you can see in the official licensed costume below –

All you need to add is some black combat boots and you’ve got a great Suicide Squad costume.

 

Suicide Squad Katana Costume

The Suicide Squad’s martial arts master is none other than Katana and if you want to pull off her costume I’ve found a great costume kit for you below –

 Women’s Suicide Squad Katana Costume Kit

This costume kit includes the jacket with attached shirt and Katana’s mask. Complete the outfit by adding a pair of black trousers and a Katana wig (unless, of course you can style your hair like hers).

Killer Croc Suicide Squad Halloween Costume

Another member of the squad is Killer Croc, born Waylon Jones he has a genetic disorder which causes his skin to look like it belongs on a reptile. After killing his aunt he joined a travelling circus under the name of Killer Croc and the rest is super villain history.

Now I’m sure if you’re a make up artist or special effects guru you could recreate the look of Killer Croc’s skin for Halloween, but for mere mortals like myself there are masks available. This costume kit includes both a mask and gloves along with his jacket and attached hoodie so all you need to add is a pair of jeans and you have the perfect Killer Croc costume for this Halloween.

Whether you dress up as your favorite member of the Suicide Squad or something different this Halloween I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these costume ideas with me, personally I love the new ‘take no prisoners’ Harley Quinn look.

Coca Cola Costumes – The Real Deal!

Fun selection of Coca Cola costumesThere are lots of cool Coca Cola costumes to choose from so whether you enjoy the refreshing taste of coke or not you’ll find a range of cool Halloween costume ideas for you to choose from here.

It’s hard to know where to start as this drink is a pop culture icon in it’s own right so as a costume you know it’s going to be a winner!   The first coke costume I saw was the coca cola can costume, then I saw a tank dress costume.   The following year I came across the coca cola bottle costume and this year I’ve ‘discovered’ another new (to me) coke costume – the coca cola vending machine costume.

Let’s have a look at some of the great coca cola costumes available….

 

Coca-Cola Vending Machine Costume

I love this vending machine costume and it’s my daughters favorite coca-cola costume ….. or at least it was yesterday! I must admit I don’t like wearing slinky costumes a lot of the time so this seems ideal to me. It is usually shown with a male model in it, but I think it’s definitely more of a unisex costume idea don’t you?

NO LONGER AVAILABLE! I’m heartbroken that the coke vending machine costume is no longer available to purchase commercially – I’ve looked everywhere I can think of even ebay and I can’t find it anymore.  I still think it’s a great idea for a costume however so why not make it yourself?

A large cardboard box could be the ‘vending machine’ you’ll just have to provide some artwork yourself (or print images of the label off to use as the buttons).  You could either have your head out the top of the box or add eyes on the front of the vending machine – personally I would have my head poking out the top like I have done for a rubik’s cube costume.

Coca Cola Can Costumes

Now I personally don’t drink diet coke, I like the real thing, but just in case you do I’ve got both coca cola can costumes available for you. If I do go for this costume you can be sure I’ll be in the good old red and white!

Now I don’t know about you, but I actually think that coke tastes better out of a can, it seems to have a more consistent flavor which is why this costume was always my favorite….until I saw the vending machine one and now I’m torn.

Coca Cola Bottle Costume

Another classic coke costume, this one really embraces the ‘coke side of life’.

Coca Cola Cup Costume

 Rasta Imposta Diet Coke Cup, Gray, One Size

 

To round up the classic coca cola costumes I just had to include the coca cola cup costume, although I could only find the diet coke cup costume this year so I guess some of the cola costumes must be on a diet!

Which of these classic coke costumes do you prefer?

Other Ways to Celebrate ‘The Real Thing’ in Costume

Now that I’ve included the classic ready to wear coca cola costumes let’s look at some other ways you can celebrate your love of coke on Halloween or for some other fancy dress event. One of the reasons that coca cola is considered a pop icon in it’s own right is because of how long it’s had a prominent role in our society. Since the late 1800s we’ve been enjoying this sweet, fizzy beverage.

You can see a range of coca cola posters and tin signs showing advertising from the Victorian era (as pictured) to now.

Victorian Coca cola costume idea

Now wearing a red Victorian outfit like the model has donned above probably doesn’t say coca-cola costume to you, but what about making your own costume using a late Victorian or Edwardian dress pattern and emulating them on some of the ‘historical themed’ coca-cola Barbies that you can get. Make sure you have a coke bottle with a straw as an accessory and you’re good to go.

If that doesn’t appeal to you then what about a more retro coca cola costume idea?   Soda jerks and soda girls are usually thought of in fifties fashions which is why you can find these cool ready to wear coca cola costumes –

Of course there’s always another outside the box coca-cola costume idea which I absolutely love….

Coca Cola Polar Bear Costume

Wouldn’t this be an awesome costume idea? Now there’s no official coca cola polar bear costume that I can find, but I think you simply need to get yourself a polar bear costume and customize it yourself –

 Polar Bear Costume

 

Now pop over to Amazon (or try one of your local stores) and get some coca cola stickers, there’s a coca-cola decal sticker sheet which looks ideal. I have a few coca-cola polar bears (the soft toy variety not the real thing!) and most of them have the coke sign on a paw.   A couple have the sign on their ear, it is also  featured on the chest. So pop on your polar bear costume and stick some coke stickers on you, carry a can or bottle of coke and you have a unique coca cola costume!
