12 of Pinterest’s Most Popular Halloween Costumes

There is one day at the end of October that allows normal people to let their freak flag fly. And yes, we are talking about the spooky holiday of Halloween. All the little kids dressing up as their favorite cartoon characters, grownups spending months on their perfect costume: this holiday is literally for everyone. Some excel at creative solutions, placing a spin on current events – some go all out with scary make up. Here are twelve of the most popular Halloween costumes on Pinterest.



This gorgeous twist on Bowie’s 1973 album Aladdin Sane is so touching and very well done. Looks like all you need is a badass hairdo, some mad make up skills and that’s it! With 2k pins this make up inspiration takes number 12 on our list.



One of our favorite characters from the glorious ‘The Addams Family’ is a great character to portray this Halloween. Play it cool, boss everyone around, and have tons of fun. This idea got 17k pins – obviously we are not too lonely in our opinion.

Mermaids are so in this season. You can pair it up with a mermaid tail and you are all set. If you are cautions about dying your hair you can always get a wig. This rendition of a modern-day mermaid got 27.7k pins and takes the 10th place on our list.

For all of you dreamers and outer space geeks: it is your time to shine. Stars instead of freckles, the whole space on your face and you will be the light of the party. This cosmic idea takes a place number 9 with 27.9k pins.



Alright – alright: all kids are adorable on Halloween. But can we be a little biased over here? Come on, it is a Lilo and Stich tribute – our Disney hearts are melting. To be fair: 30.4k people who pinned this share our opinion.

This girl went all out on her fortune teller costume and we are here to admire it. Crazy attention to detail, perfect make up – this Halloween inspiration deserves all 30.8k pins that it got. You rock fortune teller!

Can we just say ‘this is too cute’ and move on? No? Then we will have to sit here and cry our eyes out because this is just too perfect. A father/son duo is stealing our hearts! Someone call the cops. With 32k pins this Ratatouille duet carved its way into our souls.



After the appearance of a deer voice changing Snapchat it is a little bit hard to surprise us but this girl pulled all the stops. A dedication to the character, on point make up. Can she teach us her wisdom? Surely all 32.2k pins that she’s got will be in line with us.

We can acknowledge the amount of work that was put into this but we also can’t look away! This is so terrifying yet perfect for occasion. Coming in on number four on our list with 38k pins a girl that changed the rules of Halloween forever.

Hold on to your seats. Our number three on the list WILL make your heart beat faster and you might even shed a tear. No shame: this is an adorable example of some amazing (and crafty) parenting. Together with 40.9k pins can we get an ‘Amen’?!



Our runner-up can take all of our money. How can one do such purrfect make up?! We don’t know exactly how long did it take her to transform into Simba but it was totally worth it. Am I right, 43.6k repins?

Unicorns make everything better both you and we know it. This transformation (and its shocking 91k pins) is proudly taking number 1 on our list of most popular Halloween costumes. Not entirely sure unicorns have wins but 100% sure this transformation is majestic.
