From Harley Quinn to Wonder Woman and Melania Trump

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Glitzy, garish, gender-bending, the costumes in the humorous horror musical are not for the faint-hearted. Embrace burlesque glamour, and when you think you look OTT enough, add more!

The Walking Dead

To create your own zombie suit, you simply need to take an existing outfit and ravage it. Slash, rip, burn, tear, whatever you need to do to make it look like the product of an apocalypse. Beauty-wise, fake blood, crazy hair and a gormless stare are your go-tos. This look works best when travelling as a pack, so rope some friends in too.

Where’s Wally?

His distinctive red-and-white-striped t-shirt, bobble hat, and glasses makes Wally a simple, last-minute costume to pull together. Chances are, you already have a suitable Breton tee lurking in your wardrobe.

The Joker

Heath Ledger’s supervillain might parade around in a purple suit and green waistcoat for most of The Dark Knight, but there is an episode as demented nurse too. A menacing matron outfit is far easier to come by than silky suiting.

Wonder Woman

Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter’s caped get-up is not for the aerobics shy. Luckily there are a host of all-in-one costumes that are less figure-hugging than her starry hot pants and satin bodice on offer. Go forth and conquer! And perhaps take a coat with you.
