Posted on October 03, 2013 by Vivo Masks | 1 Comment

It’s the beginning of October and you’re probably starting to get invitations to Halloween parties left, right, and center. Tired of dressing up as a ‘sexy bunny’? Ladies, we’re here to help. Here’s our top picks—and to help narrow down your selection, just pick what kind of guy your beau is. Happy Halloween!

For the Chic-Geek 

Lt. Uhura from Star Trek 

We’re envisioning Zoe Saldana from Into Darkness here—pretty much every sci-fi geek’s fantasy. Go with a skin-tight red bodysuit, or a flirty red tennis dress like the one pictured here. Just don’t forget your Star Trek pin, and we’re sure you’ll make any Trekkie’s heart go thumpity-thump.

Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones

What every fiction fan’s dreams are made of; dress up as the breathtaking Danaerys Targaryen from GoT and we’re pretty certain you’ll have legions of handsome fans following you around. Whichever one of her outfits you choose, make sure to finish off the look with long ash-blonde tresses and a calm, but fierce demeanor.

Sultry Schoolgirl

Inspired by this season’s plaid trend, this is a look that’s as timeless as the fabric pattern itself. Paired with edgy fishnet stockings and black eyeliner, you’ll look sweet with a daring edge—and right on trend.

You could also try:

  • Princess Leia from Star Wars
  • Queen Amidala from Star Wars
  • Xena Warrior Princess
  • Penny from The Big Bang Theory
  • Elektra
  • Ballatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter
  • DeeDee from Dexter’s Laboratory
  • Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
  • Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

For the Cinema Stud

Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby

Beautiful and demure, Carey Mulligan’s Daisy Buchanan captured the hearts of millions in this summer’s blockbuster hit, The Great Gatsby. Emulate her style for a glamorous and effortlessly seductive 1920’s look. Just make sure to include lots of crystals and sequins so that you really sparkle.

Evanora from Oz The Great and Powerful

She’s the only witch we want to be this year—elegant, glamorous, and downright scheming. Perfectly dressed in a glittery emerald and black gown, she is definitely the wickedest witch of them all—in more ways than one.

Jennifer Lawrence in The Silver Linings Playbook

America’s sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar for her performance as a sex-addict in this quirky movie. We love this look from the movie as an effortless, but still iconic Halloween costume. And the best part? We bet you’ve got everything you need in your closet right now.

You could also try:

  • Mystique from X-Men
  • Quorra from Tron Legacy
  • Fiona from Shrek
  • Leeloo from The Fifth Element
  • Mary from There’s Something About Mary
  • Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
  • Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games
  • Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings
  • Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman 

For the Animal-Lover

Catwoman

Not a cute kitten by any means, we love this take on a sexy cat costume for this Halloween. Don a futuristic black suit, some robotic ears and a mask, and you’ll be ready to kick some serious Halloween butt in this Batman-inspired costume.

Black Swan

We didn’t quite mean the actual bird, but rather this Darren Aronofsky interpretation. Beautiful and menacing all at once, a black feather tutu with sequins and swan wings will have you looking sexy (and ever so slightly spooky) for Halloween.

Jessica Rabbit

Okay, so maybe we told a little white lie (or two!) while Jessica’s isn’t a rabbit, she’s definitely one sexy bunny. So if you’re looking to vamp up a typically cliché bunny costume, this is definitely the direction we recommend you go in. Arm yourself with a slinky red dress, some purple gloves, and a mane of red hair and you’ll be every boy’s dream come true.

You could also try:

  • Neytiri from Avatar
  • Misty from Pokemon
  • Miss Piggy from The Muppets
  • a regal peacock
  • a ladybug
  • a bee
  • a butterfly
  • Tinkerbell from Peter Pan
  • a sexy flamingo
  • a panda bear 

For the Wave-Catcher

Pirate

Damsels in distress are kind of overrated, but we like the idea of a female swash-buckling pirate, don’t you? Go for a sleek, tailored look like the one in Pirates of the Caribbean, and you’ll look sophisticated and rugged at the same time.

Sailor

Tailored to perfection, we love the idea of an old-fashioned sailor outfit. Whether you go for short-shorts or a dress, make sure you complete your look with nautical stripes, a hint of red, and sexy stilettos.

Lifeguard

There’s a reason why vintage Coca Cola ads feature lifeguards, and why Baywatch was such a hit in the 90’s. Lifeguards are crazy-pretty and athletic to boot. While you might want to take some layers off later on in the evening, we really like the idea of a red one-piece suit paired with short-shorts and a little jacket.

You could also try

  • Ariel from The Little Mermaid 
  • Olive Oyl from Popeye
  • jellyfish
  • holiday snorkeler
  • surfer
  • Octopussy from James Bond
  • a red coral
  • a naval officer  

For the History Buff

Marie Antoinette

Dressing up as the beautiful and coquettish Marie Antoinette is nothing short of foreplay at its best. Wearing an over-the-top gown with layers and layers that need to be peeled off will make his imagination run wild.

Helen of Troy

Her face was said to have launched a thousand ships, and for good reason. This mythological character was one of the most regal—and powerful—women in Greek mythology. To copy her style, wear a simple white empire-line dress with gold accessories and headpiece. We bet you’ll have everyone falling for you in no time.

Cleopatra of Egypt

Exotic and beautiful, this Egyptian queen has captured the imaginations of many over hundreds of years. With a beauty that is said to be legendary, she commanded an empire and seduced powerful men. Keep the look simple with a black gown, gold accents, and kohl-lined eyes.

You could also try:

  • Joan of Arc
  • Jane Austen
  • Amelia Earhart
  • Marie Curie
  • Eva Peron
  • Princess Diana
  • Juliet from Romeo and Juliet
  • Aphrodite
  • Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
  • Coco Chanel

For the Sports Fanatic

Race Car Driver

Fast cars and the women that drive them are a winning combination. We love the idea of dressing up like a race car driver; in all leather, with a love for the open road, and everything fast.

Golfer

Pleated skirts and argyle might seem demure, but there’s nothing cute-sy about a hip-hugging midriff-baring golf outfit. And who knows, if you aim your attention in the right direction, you could be practicing your golf swing long after the party’s over.

Cheerleader

While a skimpy cheerleader’s outfit might be what you had in mind, we’re thinking of an equally sexy, more laid-back version. Why not put on a fitted tracksuit? After all, chances are it’ll come off anyway…

You could also try:

  • beach volleyball player
  • synchronized swimmer
  • figure skater
  • female boxer
  • lacrosse player
  • field hockey player
  • softball player
  • gymnast
  • yoga instructor
  • referee 

For the Professional

Air Hostess

Glamorous air hostesses seem to have become a thing of the past, but why not bring a little bit of that jet-setting glamour to your Halloween costume this year? Pick a well-tailored skirt suit and not-very-sensible heels. Paired with confidence and a bit of spontaneity, this outfit will take you sky-high.

Police Officer

Okay, okay, so maybe you kind of already expected this one, but we just couldn’t resist. Why? Well, there’s handcuffs involved…

Diner Waitress

It’s the new working class sexy—a nice form-fitting waitress costume. We love the little details like turned-up sleeves, bright colors, and not-so-demure hemline. And bonus: the nametag will make sure he knows exactly who you are. 

You could also try:

  • a bartender
  • a nurse
  • a doctor
  • a headmistress
  • a high-powered attorney
  • a park ranger
  • an airplane pilot
  • 50’s diner waitress
  • firefighter
  • French maid  

For the Old-Glamour Aficionado

Grace Kelly

Now, while Grace Kelly’s most iconic gown is the one she wore on her wedding day, we think this beautiful monochrome dress worn by her in the classic Hitchcock film Rear Window is more fitting for Halloween. To copy Grace’s look, wear a black leotard with a long white silk skirt and strappy black sandals. 

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn was beautiful in every role; with her quirky demeanor and stunning pixie-like looks, she won the love of all her audiences. While her classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s look has been copied to death, we think she’s such an elegant icon to emulate that we’d still like to steal her look. One of our favorites is this simple ensemble from Roman Holiday, which if executed correctly will have suitors dreaming of sultry nights in Italy and lots of Italian gelato (with you, of course).

Sophia Loren

A classic beauty if there ever was one, the stunning Sophia Loren has looked incredible throughout her career. Often wearing simple costumes (or not very much) for her roles, we like the idea of the romanticism this Hollywood belle brings to the table. If you can get away with it, our favorite look is the one on the left, from the 1963 film Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.

You could also try:

  • Ginger Rogers
  • Greta Garbo
  • Katharine Hepburn
  • Bette Davis
  • Ingrid Bergman
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Judy Garland
  • Rita Hayworth
  • Ava Gardner
  • Lucille Ball
