Most women love to dress up, and Halloween is one of the few times of the year when they get to pick out a fun costume to wear. And since most women don’t have time to run around town shopping for costumes, online shopping, with it’s swift and simple freedoms, is quickly becoming one of the preferred ways to buy a costume each year.
Here’s a simple list I’ve put together to guide you in the right direction if you’re still looking for ideas for this year’s Halloween costume…
1. Coming in at #1 for the Top 5 Halloween Costumes of 2010 for Women is no surprise….Lady Gaga….anything.
When trying to look like Lady Gaga, it doesn’t hurt to have a great body, but even if you don’t and are willing to be bold, wear outlandish clothing (or very little of it), you’re off to a great start! As long as the costume involves not wearing pants, a platinum or pink wig, and an eye-covering of some sort (sunglasses or a mask), you can take your pick of outlandish accessories to pull of a Lady Gaga ensemble. Splatter glitter, (or blood or both glitter and blood) all over, wear a face covering of material of some sort- like a veil, paint your face wild, or wear super duper colorful lashes with tons of makeup, or wear some variation of go-go boot and mini skirt and you’re set.

2. in the Top 5 Halloween Costumes of 2010 for Women -Neytiri the Na’vi Princess from Avatar:
Avatar was a great flick, with all it’s new filming techniques and beautiful cinematography, there’s no denying that Avatar will go down in history. It comes in at #2 for this years Halloween costume for women, dressing like Neyriri. With the most impressive effects seen in a big blockbuster movie, it also brought to life a whole new race of creatures known as the Na’vi. If you choose to go dressed as Neytiri the Na’vi princess, everyone will be looking at you in this blue-skinned outfit!

3. in the Top 5 Halloween Costumes of 2010 for Women-Alice in Wonderland:
One of my all time favorite stories was remade (again) into a wonderful movie this year, so it’s no wonder this made it into the top 3 for Halloween costume ideas for 2010. There’s nothing like the Tim Burton – Johnny Depp combo to really stir things up! And of course, the most popular costume for men is undoubtedly going to be Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter (but I’ve heard many women may also step into the Mad Hatter’s hat this year, so don’t think you’re only confined to the neurotic Red Queen (Queen of Hearts) or the Cheshire Cat, (though they’d be great too!!).

4. in the Top 5 Halloween Costumes of 2010 for Women- Twilight: Bella Swan
It’s also no surprise to see Twilight in this list of Halloween costume ideas for 2010 as Bella and Edward (and Jacob too) are definitely hot commodities in Hollywood as well as the streets, it seems there’s no limit to the popularity of this romantic vampire saga. Women, tween girls and really any girl that hasn’t been living under a rock for the past few years are drooling blood and desperate to be Bella Swan so they can take a bite out of Edward Cullen for Halloween.
Where to find Twilight Bella’s Costume:
This one’s pretty simple, Bella is a simple girl, jeans, t-shirts and lucsious lips are what it takes to get Bella’s trademark look:
the “Bella” jacket and a pair of J Brand Mid Rise 12″ Pencil Leg Jeans (in Dark Vintage wash) — And don’t forget DuWop’s “Twilight Venom” for Bella’s lip stain.
5. in the Top 5 Halloween Costumes of 2010 for Women – Anything STEAMPUNK!
Think Mad Max vs. Neo-Victorian dystopian society. Inspiring a revolutionary subculture, H. G. Wells along with people such as Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne, Mary Shelly and movies such as “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, “The Golden Compass”, and “Bioshock” , have created a sort of offshoot of the neo-Victorian/alternate reality counterculture. Steampunk isn’t just a fashion statement, it focuses on industrial revolution, and fictional inventions based on steam power, gears, gadgets and machinery, it blends history, science and imagination as a sort of cyber-punk meets Tesla/Edison in a parallel universe. Read these explanations for a definition of Steampunk; what is steampunk by mtv. Though steampunk emerged from underground, it is quickly becoming a mainstream movement in the goth and industrial punk genre, and steampunk fashion isn’t just cool, it’s absurdly stylish to boot. If you’re still not sure what steampunk is, or if you’d like to make your own steampunk jewelry see my article on AC here.
