10 More Easy Halloween Costume Ideas for Movie-Lovers

Halloween is nigh, and it’s time for us to start thinking about our Halloween costume ideas.

For those of us who take the holiday seriously, selecting the proper Halloween costume is a tricky affair. There are so many unwritten rules. You can’t repeat a costume you already did. You want to be clever, but not too clever; dressing up as a pun is always a bad thing (i.e. a “pink slip” or a “one night stand”). You want to be topical, but you also want to ensure that no one else will dress the same as you at the party you’ll be attending.

And, most importantly, you don’t want to spend a lot of money. Oh sure, there are some of us who have a high Halloween costume budget, and can probably whip up a screen-accurate, life-size Groot costume, but most of us don’t have that kind of time or disposable income. Also, I know you liked Guardians of the Galaxy, but consider how many of your friends will also dress as Peter Quill before you start cobbling your own costume together. Timing is important.
