Potential Halloween Costumes This Year

Halloween is coming up in about a week and I’m pretty excited. I love dressing up in costumes. I’ll never be as awesome as some of my cosplay friends, especially because they probably create their own outfits and I purchase mine from stores, but I try.




Last year, I dressed up as Harley Quinn and the year before that, I was Little Red Riding Hood. This year, I have a ton of ideas, but what I choose all depends on time, money, and if I can cobble the costume together.

Some of my Halloween costume ideas are anime in nature. I was thinking about Sailor Saturn from Sailor Moon, Shimizu Kiyoko from Haikyuu!!, female version of Kageyama Tobio from Haikyuu!!, or Tadokoro Megumi from Shokugeki no Soma. The latter three would be relatively easy to cobble together a costume, but since I want to go to an anime convention next year, I’ve been leaning against these choices because I can use them when I cosplay during the con.

I also thought about Chun Li from Street Fighter since it was one of my potentials last year, so I went to a nearby costume shop to see if they had this. They unfortunately sold out from the ones they had from last year and weren’t ordering anymore. Nooo, why!

There’s also the Marvel possibilities like Agent Melinda May or Agent Daisy Johnson from Agents of SHIELD, or Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Cinematic Movies. Those costumes would be a little more easier to cobble together, except for the SHIELD badges I’d need, but it’s doable.

And let’s not forget Wonder Woman from the Batman v Superman movie because Gal Gadot was amazing. I even saw a costume at the store that is pretty similar to what Gal wore in the movie, but the downside is that it’s pretty expensive at almost $50. I love Wonder Woman, but do I love her $50 worth for one day?

I’m still debating about my Halloween costume, so consider this a work a progress.

Here’s the trailer in case you haven’t seen it yet:

I actually almost missed that this came out a few days ago because I haven’t been keeping up with geeky news (I knew Luke Cage was coming, but not when). I started to rewatch Jessica Jones when I saw it available on my Netflix page.




I’m going into Luke Cage the same way I’m going into Jessica Jones and Daredevil, knowing practically nothing except for the name of the main character. I’m already on the 3rd episode though and I am hooked, just as I was with the previous Marvel Netflix shows. Also, bonus: Misty Knight! I’ve only heard about her from my friend who loves Misty (and Colleen, who will be appearing in the Iron Fist show), so I’m glad to finally see her in action.* And always a good bonus: Claire Temple from Daredevil and Jessica Jones is also in Luke Cage.

*I used to read comics as a child, but it’s a medium that’s way too complicated, convoluted, and expensive for me to keep up with, so I’m glad I can keep up through shows, cartoons, and movies.
