Can there be a Halloween without an awesome superhero costume? Yeah, we didn’t think so. You can’t even think of playing tricks or getting all the treats without sporting a classic Marvel or DC Comics costume. Don’t forget — this has been an amazing time for heroes and heroines from all of our fave comic books and movies. From Wonder Woman to Black Panther and everything in-between, now is the time to unleash your inner crime-fighting alter ego. We fully expect to see a slew of Jokers like never before, along with tons of exciting newcomers, like our fave Spider Chick. So whether you are a caped crusader or a vile villain, here are some epic costume ideas for your Halloween night.


1. Spider Chick Costume: Who said you had to leave all the crime-fighting to the boys? Elevate the iconic Marvel character with a more feminine take. (via Brit + Co)


2. Batman Costume: If you’re going to dress up as Gotham’s protector, this costume is the way to go. We are loving that mask — and that mid-air action pose. (via Brit + Co)


3. Wonder Woman Costume: Someone’s gotta rep DC Comics’ resident female superstar! Gotta love a one-and-done bodysuit as a costume. (via Brit + Co)


4. Harley Quinn Costume: So maybe Harley Quinn isn’t exactly a superhero, but she comes close enough. This Suicide Squad getup will be awesome this Halloween, so join in on the fun and DIY one of your own. (via Brit + Co)


5. Harry Potter Costume: It’s only a matter of time before everyone’s favorite fictional teen wizard joins the ranks of superhero super-stardom, right? We love how her short skirt just works with this look. “Stupefy!(via Brit + Co)


6. Poison Ivy Costume: An adversary to Batman, Poison Ivy is a DC Comics villain with toxic tendencies. She’s usually green, has bright red hair, and is covered in poison ivy leaves. Some fake ivy leaves from your local Michaels and a red wig can create the costume in a much safer manner, though. (via Brit + Co)


7. Deadpool Costume: You’d better be jacked if you want to pull this red bodysuit off — or just have some really good ninja skills. (via Brit + Co)


8. Pink Power Ranger Costume: Truthfully, we’ve been dreaming of wearing the Pink Power Ranger costume for what feels like our whole lives. If you feel the same way, then make this the year to honor this ’90s classic. (via Brit + Co)

Incredibles Costumes

9. The Incredibles Costume: This costume is easy to DIY or buy, whichever works for your budget and schedule. It’s perfect for the family or a group of friends. (via Brit + Co)


10. Classic Catwoman Costume: There’s no arguing that this purr-fect lady is who we want to be this Halloween. After all, no one can nail the whole part superhero, part super villain thing like Catwoman can. (via Brit + Co)


11. Gamora Costume: This is one of the most impressive Guardians of the Galaxy costumes we’ve ever seen. Now let’s see if she nails Batman’s gravelly voice. (via Brit + Co)


12. Disney Princesses Costume: We couldn’t leave this obvious group costume idea out of the mix. Whether you go sexy or sweet, it’s always a good fallback. (via Brit + Co)

Cruella de Vil Costume

13. Cruella de Vil Costume: Hold on to your pups, kids! This stylish Disney villain is coming. (via Brit + Co)

Guardians of the Galaxy

14. Guardians of the Galaxy Costume: The breakout superhero movie is definitely a fun dress-up choice. Keep a boom box and a sick ’80s mix close by to serve as your walk-in soundtrack. (via Brit + Co)

Black Window

15. Black Widow Costume: Known for her prowess as a skilled spy, martial artist, and sniper, Black Widow is basically a badass lady worthy of imitating any year. (via Brit + Co)


16. Ghostbusters: This is totally the time to rock a Ghostbusters costume. All-female cast represent! (via Brit + Co)


17. Glitzy Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman stands for justice, truth, and love and she wields an arsenal of weapons, including a throwing tiara and indestructible golden bracelets. The glitzy makeup spin on this one is, well, wonderful. (via Brit + Co)


18. Sansa Stark Costume: Play your favorite Stark from Game of Thrones. Our most admired thing about her? This chick doesn’t take ish from anybody. (via Brit + Co)


19. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume: Ninja skills AND plenty of pizza to go around? Yeah, that sounds like our kinda gig. (via Brit + Co)


20. Iron Man Costume: Now, if only you had time to build a custom robot computer system named Jarvis. (via Brit + Co)


21. DC vs. Marvel Costume: Put the true superheroes and villains to the test in the ultimate group costume comic book matchup. (via Brit + Co)


22. Katniss Everdeen Costume: You don’t have to ask us twice to play one of J.Law’s most standout roles, especially when a sweet bow and arrow comes with it. (via Brit + Co)


23. Flash Costume: Feeling the need for speed? Between the skintight bodysuit and lightning detail, this outfit was made for making moves. (via Brit + Co)


24. Wonder Woman and the Amazons Costume: We all love a strong female lead — and a girl gang to support her. If there ever was a year to grab your gal pals and do a group costume, this is it. (via Brit + Co)


25. Power Rangers Group Costume: We’re sure you can easily buy these at any costume store, but where’s the fun in that? If you have a group of six, join forces. (via Brit + Co)


26. Rey Costume: Channel your favorite Star Wars Jakku warrior in a costume that puts your tough girl personality on display. (via Brit + Co)


27. Cersei Lannister Costume: Everyone has an evil streak. And for people like Game of Thrones lead Cersei Lannister, it’s a little more all-encompassing than others. Now, wouldn’t that be fun to play for a night? We say “yes.” (via Brit + Co)


28. Storm Costume: X-Men‘s weather-controlling Storm is one of the most prominent badass X-(wo)Men out there. She’s had some pretty sweet signature looks through the years. The above costume is more of a ’90s recreation rather than the all-black leather bodysuit Halle Berry rocked. (via Brit + Co)


29. Funny Catwoman Costume: Batman’s side-chick doesn’t *have* to flaunt a sleek and sexy bodysuit. In fact, we pretty much encourage going with this clever rendition that includes no more than a tee and some duds already in your wardrobe. (via Brit + Co)


30. Hocus Pocus Costume: It would only be fitting to conclude with the most epic villain trio of them all — the Sanderson sisters! (via Brit + Co)
