By  | 

Thinking about what costume to wear this Halloween but want something different from the classic vampires, ghosts and zombies? Then you are in the right place. We have found 45 cool Halloween costume ideas for women. We have something for everyone, from costumes inspired by TV shows to makeup that will fright or delight.

1. Unicorn Halloween Costume

Our first cool Halloween costume idea for women is a magical unicorn. There are lots of different ways to create unicorn makeup and costumes but we love this one. The makeup is bright with pastel tones and matches the hair and tail. Her outfit is white and accessorized with crystals. Take inspiration from this and recreate something similar or use your own color palette.

2. Betty Boop Costume Idea

Betty Boop is one of the most popular animated characters ever created and our next idea is a brilliant example of a Betty Boop costume. The artist has created the large eyes and hairline with makeup, you don’t have to create the doll like eyes, you can just have glam eyes with red lips. Then all you need is a red dress, gold jewelry and maybe a short wig to complete the look.

Follow Promise Tamang’s simple tutorial and you’ll end up looking like the real-life version of Betty Boop!

3. Pin Up Zombie

There are many costume and makeup ideas around that feature half of one design and half of another. We love this idea because you get two looks in one. This next idea features half zombie and half vintage/pin up makeup. With this, you get a popular Halloween costume and can join in the scary fun, but you can still look glam too. Try makeup like this or create your own horrifying zombie design.

Next, we have a mime makeup and costume idea. Mime artists do not talk they just use movement and expression to communicate. This would be so much fun at parties, you can use this to play jokes on people and more. If you like the mime idea then a costume like this would be perfect. The makeup is quite simple and you will need a beret, stripe top, white gloves and black pants or skirt. Super simple, right?

You can use this technique in your outfit too, maybe one side is clean and pretty while the other is ripped and old.

10. Eleven Stranger Things Costume

Our next idea is an Eleven costume inspired by TV show Stranger Things. The look features the dress, wig and Eggos that all the fans will know. You can also take inspiration from other characters or create a costume based off one of Eleven’s different looks.
