Sucker Punch Halloween Costumes

Sweet Pea Sucker Punch Costume

Sweet Pea Costume – Buy Here!

When I saw the movie Sucker Punch I remember thinking what cool costumes some of the characters wore in the main character’s fantasy world.

It didn’t surprise me in the least when I saw Baby Face, Sweet Pea, Amber, Rocket and Blondie’s costumes available to purchase. I felt that they had an anime look to them – not sure if fans of anime would agree with me though!

The actual movie itself isn’t one I’d watch again as it just didn’t grab me, but the costumes….. well that’s a whole different story.

Let’s have a look at some of the main characters and their costumes.

Baby Doll Costume

Sucker Punch’s Lead Character in Costume

The costumes that stand out for me with all of the characters are their fantasy fighting outfits and for Baby Doll that’s a navy blue costume with a Lolita style sailor boy top and short skirt with over the knee black stockings.

Baby Doll’s costume also needs a weapon to complete it and her weapon of choice is a sword which she’s very adept at using.

Womens Sucker Punch Babydoll Costume

This officially licensed costume includes the top with it’s attached belt, skirt, headpiece and thigh high stockings. What’s not included is the wig or the weapon.

The blonde wig is a great way of getting Baby Dolls hair if you don’t have long blonde hair yourself. If you do then all you need to do is to put it into two pony tails and add the headpiece – perfect!

Baby Doll is the lead character in the movie and it’s her fantasy world that the girls all become fighters in, well actually they first become sex slaves in a brothel, but for the sake of these costumes we’re going to the second fantasy of them as strong fighters.

She befriends four other girls – Sweet Pea and her sister Rocket, Amber and Blondie.

Amber’s Costume

Sucker Punch’s Nod to the Army!

Amber obviously loves a soldier in uniform as she has taken on the Army’s green uniform and added a very sexy touch to them. Add black combat boots, black hot pants and fishnet stockings and a nod to the 1940s with a mini 1940s army hat perched on one side of her head and you have a show stopping costume to wear.

Check it out below –

Sucker Punch Amber Costume

The costume includes the jacket with attached top, shorts, chaps, choker and headpiece. What isn’t included is the the weapon (Amber’s weapon of choice is a dagger), wig and boots.

Amber manages to steal one of the essential items needed for their escape plan to work, unfortunately she is shot before their plan can be put into action.

Blondie’s Costume

The first thing you have to know about Blondie is that she isn’t blonde! I’m not sure where the name came from, but Sucker Punch’s Blondie is definitely a brunette!

Unfortunately Blondie can’t keep a secret very well and ends up spilling their escape plan and getting shot in the process. In the fantasy world, however, Blondie had a very ‘kick ass’ costume and wielding an axe in style!

Womens Sucker Punch Blondie Costume

This officially licensed Sucker Punch costume includes Blondie’s bodysuit, hardcore glovettes, belt and thigh high stockings.

Not included is the wig, boots or her weapon of choice.

Where I see a real Lolita touch in Baby Doll’s costume, with Blondie’s outfit the look is a lot more ‘don’t mess with me’ and I must say I think it’s even cooler because of that!

Rocket’s Costume

Sweet Pea’s Sister’s Fighting Costume

Rocket is the spunky sister of Sweet Pea, a bit of a rebellious girl who ran away from home before ending up in the asylum. It is because of her that Sweet Pea is there too because she came looking for her.

Rocket loves her sister and appreciates that she’d do anything for her which I believe is why she sacrificed herself for Sweet Pea so that she could escape and live a life on the outside.

Womens Sucker Punch Rocket Costume

I’m not really sure what I think of Rocket’s fighting costume, it was one of the ones that didn’t really stay with me after the movie, although as I look at this officially licensed one it certainly has something about it – almost like a rebellious punk version of a classic flight attendant’s dress!

The costume includes the dress with attached garters, headpiece, glovettes and belt.

To complete the look you’d need a wig (unless you have short hair that you can style like Rockets), black fishnet stockings and thigh high black boots.

If you want to to be a daring fighter like Rocket you’ll also need to get a knife to wield!

Sweet Pea Costume

Another Sucker Punch Costume

Sweet Pea is a little dubious about the escape plan at first, probably because she’s the more cautious and responsible of the group. As far as fighting costumes go I think her’s is the best and the way she uses her Katana – well I wouldn’t stand in her way!

Sweet Pea certainly seems to have a meatier role that the other three of Baby Dolls friends and she manages to acquire two of the items needed for the escape plan and SPOILER ALERT ends up being the only one to actually escape the asylum.

Sucker Punch Sweet Pea Adult Costume

This costume includes a hooded jacket (personally I think it’s the hooded jacket which gives the outfit the something extra that makes it my favorite), brief shorts, glovettes and thigh high stockings.

Not included are Sweet Pea’s weapon and wig.

A Great Group Costume Idea

Although all of these costumes are great by themselves, they are also a really cool group costume idea, if there are more than five of you then you can add other characters from the movie such as Blue and Dr Gorski.

Fun Crayon Halloween Costumes

Crayola Crayon Costumes

These Crayola Crayon Halloween costumes are a lot of fun and a great idea for a group costume as they come in a range of different colors. I guess that’s hardly surprising as they are based on crayons!   Whether you prefer the orange crayon costume or the blue crayon costume there’s plenty of colors to choose from.

I think they’re a great costume idea that is bound to bring a smile to anyone’s face young and old because they’re something that generations of people are familiar with.

Let’s have a look at the range of different crayon costumes that are available.

Fun Crayola Crayon Costumes

Halloween Costumes.com

I particularly like the individual crayon costumes, but research would suggest that the box of crayons style of costume is the most popular.

Individual Crayon Costumes

As you can see from the image there’s actually three different takes on the individual crayon costumes.

I personally love the unisex crayon costumes which you can see in the top row of the picture. This style is available from Toddler age up in a range of colors like the ones above as well as yellow, orange and red.

There is even a baby bunting costume in this style which looks very cute. Check it out below –

&

You can dress the whole family up in different colored crayon costumes which should made everyone happy!

Of course there are other styles of crayon costumes available and you know that because you can see them on the picture so let’s look at them as well.

Sticking with the individual crayons the costumes shown above are both designed for women and include a tank dress style costume as well as a what is called a glitz and glitter tank dress.

The traditional tank dress style of costume can be found for a lot of different things such as candy costumes such as twix bars or the individual m&ms as well as board games like tic tak toe and vodka bottle costumes so it’s hardly a surprise to see it as a crayon costume as well.

I do like the hat that comes with it, but for me the tank dress is just not very flattering to my figure so I’ll be sticking to the unisex costume!

The glitz and glitter tank dress style of costume is a lot of fun and I know a few little girls who would like this style and luckily it is available in girls sizes as well as ladies sizes. The shoulder is more of a boat style and the style of the skirt helps to soften the look of the tank – it looks like a lot of fun!

This costume does contain glitter however and this can mean that you find glitter everywhere after wearing it. I haven’t actually tried on these costumes, but reviewers have mentioned that this is a problem and it does appear to be the same material that my daughter had in a flapper dress once which looked fantastic, but dropped glitter like crazy!

 

Dog Crayon Costumes

Hold the Phones – There’s a Crayon Halloween Costume for Your Pet!

I have only just found this next costume quite by accident and I’m so excited because I think my dog would look awesome in it! You really can dress the whole family up as a box of crayons, fur children as well!

Crayola Pink Dog Costume

This is also available in blue and green which is just as well because I don’t think my hubby would like me to dress our male dog in this pink!

I’m not sure the model looks very happy, but I think our ‘little man’ will love strutting his stuff in this costume.  Whether he keeps the hat on or not is another story though!

 

Crayola T-Shirts

You can also combine a Crayola t-shirt with a pair of matching leggings to make a costume as well. (The official leggings which are available can also be worn under the dress if you like.)

These t-shirts are also ideal if you have a husband like mine is a little bah humbug about dressing up in costume for Halloween.

Let him wear a t-shirt with a pair of jeans and he won’t feel like he’s in full costume, but the kids will see him as a crayon just like them, although they may be cheeky enough to tell him his costume’s not nearly as good as theirs!

 

Box of Crayons Costume

The other costume in the picture at the top of the page is a unisex one of a box of crayons and this has been shown to be the most popular of crayon costumes over the past few years.

Rasta Imposta Crayola Crayon Box Costume

If you’re dressing up yourself then it’s ideal to keep all of the different crayons in one place, but if you’re dressing up as a family or a group of friends then personally I’d be going for the individual crayons

As a couple you could combine the box of crayons with a sheet of paper for drawing in – basically a big piece of cardboard stuck onto your front!

If you’re feeling very creative you could use two pieces of cardboard, one on your front and one on your back – write coloring book on the front one and you now have a crayon inspired couples costume idea!

So which crayon Halloween costume is your favorite?  I’m going with the purple unisex crayon as my outfit of choice.

Fun crayon Halloween costumes for the whole family even the dog!

The Village People Costumes

The Village People – An Instantly Recognizable Group Costume Idea

The Village People Costumes

The Village People

A really fun idea for a group at Halloween is to dress up in The Village People Costumes.  This is definitely one of the more popular and fun group costume ideas!

I don’t know what it is about these outfits. but on the few occasions that I’ve seen people dress up as The Village People it’s always brought a smile to my face and I know I’m not the only one affected in that way.

So who were the Village People? A group known for bringing earwig songs into the charts such as the eternal YMCA as well as Macho Man & In The Navy.

This colorful American disco group dressed up as a native American, soldier (sometimes a member of the navy instead), a cop, a construction worker, a cowboy and a biker/leatherman.

Village People Cowboy Outfit

Yeeha – This is a Fun Village People Costume!

The cowboy outfit hasn’t changed that much over the years despite different people ‘playing the role’, one thing to remember though is that The Village People were formed in the 70s which means that with this costume you should also add a moustache that Ron Burgundy would be proud of!

Men’s Fringe Cowboy Costume

This costume includes the waistcoat, chaps, neckerchief and hat which means that you’ll have to supply the sheriff’s badge, jeans, boots, moustache and shirt.
Below you’ll find a perfect moustache for jolting you straight back to the seventies, absolutely perfect for wearing when you’re singing YMCA!
I’ve sourced a checked flannel shirt for you to add to the costume, but you could use any casual shirt that’s in your wardrobe. I just don’t think you can beat the old checked flannel shirt for a cool cowboy costume though.
I’ve also managed to find you a sheriff’s badge to complete your costume in style, so which hit do you want to sing first? “…in the navy, you can sail the seven seas….”

Village People Indian Chief Costume

Just One of the Popular Village People Costume Ideas

This is an officially licensed costume that is ‘supposed’ to be based on the native American costume that’s worn by a member of the Village People, however it’s quite different from the one I remember from YMCA days. The one I remember wore jeans and a suede fringed jacket (very 70s frontierman look!) along with the headdress, war paint and cool boots.

Smiffys Village People Indian Costume Adult

This costume includes the headdress, loincloth, chestplate and boot covers. If you want to you could wear this and when you’re with the other members of the group you’ll still be recognizable as members of The Village People.

 

Village People Cop Outfit

As different people came and went in the group the costumes changed a few times as well. This officially licensed Village People costume is based on the original highway patrol uniform that was worn, but a blue police uniform has also been worn at times over the years so if you have a different police uniform on hand feel free to wear it instead.

Village People Motorcycle Cop (Standard)

This official costume includes the shirt, trousers, boot covers, helmet and belt which is all you really need. If you want to add a little extra then a black pleather jacket would be good along with a pair of handcuffs hanging off of the belt.

You also want to make sure you have a few shirt buttons undone (it was the 70s, the decade of men baring chest hair …..) and add a few dangling gold chains.

 

Village People Biker Costume

One of the More Popular of The Village People Costumes!

This official costume includes the chaps, top, hat and even harness (well not a ‘real’ one, just a plastic one that looks like the real deal!). All you’ll need to add is a pair of jeans or trousers, your disco dancing boots and the most important thing a very 70s moustache!

Village People Biker (Standard)

Not only is this an officially licensed costume it even says ‘The Village People’ on the hat – just in case anyone couldn’t identify you!

 

Village People Construction Worker Outfit

This costume set includes the shirt, belt, hat and sunglasses so that all you need to do is harmonize with the rest of the group, think of the words to the song Macho Man to get yourself in the zone and you’ll be halfway there.

Smiffys Village People Construction Worker Costume – Adult

All you need to add is jeans, boots and let’s not forget a cool looking 70s mo!

 

Village People Navy Costume

When I think of the Village People I always envisage a soldier in the ranks (probably because of the YMCA video), but the soldier was often replaced by a naval man. The costume below is an officially licensed Village People costume, but they’ve also had someone who was dressed more like an officer on some occasion.

Village People Navy Costume Adult One Size Fits Most

This outfit includes the top, trousers and hat which is all you really need to be one sixth of The Village People.

 

An Army Serviceman Instead?

Alternative Village People Costume Idea

If you don’t like the navy costume for whatever reason, or you just happen to have some fatigues lying around then why not dress up as a soldier instead?

If you don’t have the gear then take these items below and team them with a pair of lace up black boots and the words to a few songs (better skip In The Navy though as it might not seem quite right) and join the rest of your group for a great night out.

Do You Have YMCA Stuck in Your Head Now?

I must admit I wasn’t a fan of YMCA, but whenever I heard it I couldn’t get it out of my head. I hadn’t heard it for a few years until my daughter’s first school disco in primary school when the organizers decided to infiltrate our kid’s heads with this earwig song.

If you haven’t heard of the expression earwig song it basically means a song that gets stuck in your head and won’t get out. Now there is a cure, but unfortunately that cure has a side effect…….. simply start humming The Birdie Song and it’ll get rid of any earwig song you have – the side effect is that you’re often left with The Birdie Song stuck in there instead!

These days I don’t mind hearing the song as I get a touch nostalgic when it’s played ….. and I remember how cute it was watching my daughter dance to it!!

Get Yourself in the Mood!

YMCA Original Music Video

Get yourself in the mood with the original music video as you’re getting ready to go out…….. even if you’ve decided NOT to dress up as the Village People I’m sure you want to listen to the song again don’t you?

The Village People Halloween costumes are a great idea for a fun group costume that is instantly recognizable.

Ghostbusters Costume Ideas

The Flintstones Fancy Dress Costumes

the flintstones costume ideasThe Flintstones fancy dress costumes are a great idea for any fan of Fred Flintstone and his friends and family.   I can’t think of a better crowd than the Flintstones and Rubbles to dress up as for a group costume idea, yabba dabba doo!

One of our friends actually dressed up as Barney Rubble many moons ago and did a really good job of it.   I haven’t actually seen any of our friends dress up as Fred and Wilma yet though so it could be a great idea for hubby and I this Halloween – what do you think?

In a hurry? Shop The Flintstones Halloween Costumes Now!

Enough yapping about the Flintstones, let’s look at their costumes…..

Adult Fred Flintstone Costume

The Flintstones’ patriarch is constantly scheming, although he has a big heart so if this sounds like you then check out the costume below –

Mascot Fred Flintstone CostumeMascot Fred Flintstone Costume

This mascot costume is a deluxe option for an adult Fred Flintstone costume – it includes a tunic with attached arms, pants, oversized feet covers and the best part of this particular costume – a mascot head! There’s absolutely no doubting who you are whether you’re saying yabba dabba doo or not!

There are other options for Fred Flintstones costumes which are the one’s that I’ve actually come across at fancy dress events in the past – I have yet to see the mascot one, although it’s the one I think looks best!

Wilma Flintstone Fancy Dress Costume

Fred’s long suffering wife Wilma is also instantly recognizable to everyone who grew up watching The Flintstones on television and if you’re looking for a great idea for a couples costume then Fred and Wilma Flintstone certainly make a fun costume idea.

There are a couple of costumes available to buy for Wilma as you can see below –

So before you can say yabba dabba doozie! You can dress up as Pebbles and be part of a Flintstones group costume idea. If you’re after a family costume then there are children costumes available as well.

Barney Rubble Halloween Costume

You can’t really have Fred without his best friend Barney who would always do ‘whatever you say, Fred’ before they both landed up in trouble! I do have to issue a warning on this costume though …….. a friend of ours dressed up as Barney Rubble for a fancy dress party more moons ago than I care to say and he is still being called Barney by everyone. The look was a little too convincing methinks.

He didn’t, however have this awesome mascot costume which looks amazing and would go really well with the Fred Flintstone Mascot Costume above.

Mascot Barney Rubble CostumeMascot Barney Rubble Costume

This mascot Barney Rubble Halloween costume comes with a tunic that has attached arms, it also comes with pants and the fun oversized foot covers that also accompanied the Fred costume above. Add to that the fun looking Barney Rubble mascot head and I don’t know which mascot costume I prefer!

You can find other Barney Rubble costumes as well, but really why would you?

Just in case you don’t like the idea of a mascot head which I must admit can seem a little claustrophobic at times then here’s a few other Barney Rubble costume alternatives –

Betty Rubble Halloween Costume

Great friends with Wilma Flintstone, Betty has to put up with Barney being regularly led astray by Fred and she does so while still looking pretty in a stone age way –

This costume even includes the wig so is perfect if you want to dress up as Betty Rubble. I must admit I always preferred Betty’s blue dress to Wilma’s wardrobe. The shoes featured above aren’t included but then I don’t recall seeing her ever wear shoes on the cartoon so I’d go barefoot.

There are a few other options for Flintstone costumes such as Dino the Flintstone’s pet or Bamm Bamm the Rubble’s son, but I think I’ve covered the main Flintstones in this post. Of course you may decide that you don’t want to buy a ready made costume and the Flintstone’s costumes are quite basic which makes then a great idea for a diy costume.
