Want to make an impact this Halloween? Then why not pick a character from your favourite television show or film? Choosing a character that everyone knows will instantly resonate with them and provide a great talking point.
Halloween costumes can become boring, with kids and adults alike opting for witches or vampire outfits, but why not be different this year?
If you fancy a change, here are the best Halloween costumes that are based on film and TV characters:
Frank N. Furter Costume: from $23
It’s just a jump to the left. And then a step to the right. You’ll be singing this all night if you don this daring costume and channel your inner Tim Curry, surely the most iconic Frank N. Furter of all time?
Billy from Saw: from $28
For all those who want to play a game, this is even better if you can borrow a tricycle. A truly terrifying costume that will have any party guests running for cover, scared that Jigsaw has some gruesome game planned for them. Shoes not included.
Princess Leia Costume: from $29
Many teenagers fantasied about Princess Leia when they first watched Star Wars, and with this sexy Halloween costume you can bring all those memories back for them. The costume also includes a toy blaster as well as the Darth Vader candy bucket.
Thor Costume: from $31
Want to attract the ladies with your ripped muscles and toned body? You probably won’t in this costume. It includes a wig to pull off the full effect. Good luck is all we say.
Maleficent Costume: from $32
The sexiest demon of all time, this evil damson is a great way to explore your darker side, but you’ll have to go to the shops to buy the fishnets and shoes as they are not included.
Pennywise Clown Costume: from $38
They all float! C’mon on! Whether you love the original or the new version (Tim Curry fan, it’s got to be the original) Pennywise is surely one of the scariest clowns, until we get to American Horror Story:Cult version perhaps.
Wonder Woman: from £38
Are you a fan of the new Wonder Woman? We are, thanks to the amazing performance from Gal Gadot, who first appeared in the revamped Superman and Batman films.
Adult Derek Zoolander Costume: $39.99
Everyone knows that there’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking, and you can channel your best Blue Steel look when you wear Derek Zoolander’s designer clothes.
General Grievous Costume: from $41
There are so many great characters to choose from when it comes to Star Wars characters but we love this Halloween costume that doesn’t automatically make you a four-armed robot, you’ll need to buy a couple of lightsabres for that!

Millions of people were gutted when Jon Snow died in Game of Thrones. Make their day by bringing him back to life in this amazing Halloween costume.
Belle from Beauty & the Beast: $47

Perhaps the only clown that is as frightening, if not more so, than Pennywise, Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Cult even features that terrifying mask with those awful teeth.

Arguably the most popular character in Game of Thrones, Daenerys, Princess of House Targaryen is instantly recognisable in this Halloween costume. Wig not included
