Great Adult Halloween Costume Ideas

Adult Halloween costume ideas are sometimes hard to come by. Whether you are looking for a costume for a party with family and friends or are going to a local night club, chances are you will want a unique, fun and easy to come by costume. Many times, adults want to enter into costume contests where there they can often win cash prizes. Therefore, adults generally want a unique costume.

Adult Halloween costume ideas can go above and beyond what could be worn as a child. The costumes can often be a bit sexier and sometimes can even be very controversial. One of the most popular adult costumes, which a child cannot pull off, is a nun who is pregnant. For this costume, you will need to invest in pillow and habit. If you are going as a couple, your significant other could go as a priest.

When considering adult Halloween costume ideas try and think out of the box. For instance you could easily dress up as a "one night stand". For this costume you would need a cardboard box, painted to look like a night stand. Your head would poke out of the top. On your head you would need to wear a lamp shade, to make it look like you are a lamp sitting on the night stand. You could also glue items such as a book or pair of glasses to the top of the night stand.

Another great adult Halloween costume idea comes straight from the 50s. Women could dress up in a poodle skirt, tight fitting sweater and saddle shoes. A man could slick his hair back and throw on a white t-shirt with a pack of cigarettes rolled in one of the sleeves. In order to complete the outfit, a man would need a pair of black boots. A black leather coat will add that extra special touch to the costume.

If you are going out as a group and are looking for some great adult Halloween costume ideas, you may want to consider the characters from the Wizard of Oz or Scooby Doo. For the Wizard of Oz each person would pick a character and dress like them. For example, if you chose to be Dorothy, you would need some a white shirt with puffy sleeves and a blue and white checkered jumper, with a matching bow for your hair. You will also want a small wicker basket that will hold "Toto".

If you are looking for a more original adult Halloween costume idea, consider doing a "Hillbilly Wedding". For this, you will need a bride (preferably a young one). Have the bride dress in a short white "wedding" dress. For an added touch, make the bride look like she is pregnant. For a bouquet, consider a potted flower. The groom can wear a pair of bib overalls with a suit jacket. You will also need a bridesmaid (who can wear a puffy dress from the 80s). If you have enough people, someone could dress up as the "Father of the bride". For this, you will want a pair of bib overalls as well. In order to complete his ensemble, have him carry a pretend shot gun. You can't forget to add "hillbilly teeth" to the costumes.

In order to come up with some adult Halloween costume ideas, be sure to use your imagination. You do not have to spend a lot of money to come up with a costume that is sure to have your friends taking a second glance. When trying to come up with some adult Halloween costume ideas, be sure to think out of the box.
