Don’t be scared – Halloween is coming!

By Benedetta Giorgianni

Remember the good old ghost costume? Leave it behind and get ready for a special Halloween with an enviable outfit.

Halloween became, as the years passed by, one of the most anticipated festivities of the year. Parties and outfits aside, the mood surrounding the cities is exciting and indeed unique. According to tradition, people usually start planning their outfits in advance and yet, some of us aren’t prepared and without a clue about what they should be wearing. Ready or not, it is the right time to get ready and shock everyone with some simple but interesting ideas inspired from tv shows and movies.

At the very top we find tv series and their characters. When we are thinking about series, the first thing we get in our mind is for sure Netflix. In fact, 2019 has been a very generous year for the audience who was so impatient to watch many new shows and sequels. Some examples could be Eleven and the trio Dustin, Robin, Steve from “Stranger Things 3”, the suits worn by the Spanish thefts from “The Money Heist”, a zombie from “Santa Clarita Diet” or Piper from “Orange is the New Black” and the characters from “Game of Thrones”. 

When it comes to the cinema world we are gifted with some particular personalities including Pennywise from “Hit the clown”, The Joker from his last movie “The Joker”, Agent H and Agent M from “Men in Black”, Elton John from “Rocket man”, “The Lion King” and the crazy and powerful Harley Queen from “Suicide Squad”.

For those who are feeling a bit nostalgic, Peter Pan syndrome can provide us with a wide range of Halloween outfits ideas: Princesses, “Monsters and Co.” , “The Incredibles”, “Toy Story”, “Mary Poppins”, Elsa and Anna From “Frozen”, Shrek and Fiona, “Lilo and Stitch”, “The Ninja Turtles”,  “The Flintstones”, “Alice in Wonderland”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and The Minions from “Despicable Me”. 

Classic movies are always a great idea to remember the good old days:  the creepy little girl Wednesday Addams, the beautiful Audrey Hepburn in Holly Golightly from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, Diana from “Wonder Woman”, Mia Wallace from “Pulp Fiction”, Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill” and Mathilda from “Leon”. 

When it comes down to scary outfits, here are some examples: Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason from “Friday 13th”, “JigSaw”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Edward Scissorhands”.
