Halloween Costume Ideas 2012

It’s time to retire that Lady Gaga meat suit and file away that Borat costume. Here’s Brands501 abridged look at the hottest halloween costume ideas 2012.

Halloween Costume Ideas 2012

Replacement referee

You’ll basically need a Foot Locker uniform, workout attire, a baseball cap and whistle. Consider a random piece of cloth for flags. Then just act like you generally don’t understand what’s going, and call incorrect party fouls all night.

Halloween Costumes Ideas magic Mike

‘Magic Mike’ dudes

Any of the guys from the summer hit “Magic Mike” would be good this year, but we’re partial to Joe Manganiello’s firefighter, Big Dick Richie. Easy to pull off, but be sure to wax your chest guys. Oh, and good luck with the abs.

Halloween Costume Ideas PSY


Duh! There are going to be a LOT of people showing off their Gangnam Style this year. Guys, girls, doesn’t matter! Even better, assemble all the characters from the video and make it a group costume!

Halloween Costume Ideas Gandalf


Master wizard Gandalf in the upcoming fantasy movie, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

Kim & Kanye

This pop culture power couple is perfect because their images and features are so exaggerated. For Kanye, stuff some cotton balls in your cheeks, grow a goatee and show off your arm tats (real or fake). For Kim Kardashian: Stuff your bra (they’ve gotta be big, ladies), stuff your pants to enlarge your booty and puff up your lips. Complete the look with a manila envelope that reads “Confidential: Sex tape.”

Kristen Stewart

The look: mini-skirt with Vans or other “boy” shoes, a blank look on your face, “Trampire” written across your T-shirt, which is so thin your bra is visible beneath it.

Halloween Costume Ideas James Bond

James Bond

The new installment of the franchise looks awesome enough to drum up some costume enthusiasm. A suit is an easy enough to find, but make sure you find the proper accents like cufflinks, a pocket square and dashing looks.

Halloween Costume Ideas The Red Bull jumper

The Red Bull jumper

Felix Baumgartner’s jump from space to earth captured the headlines in October of this year, and his astronaut-like get-up is easy to replicate. No jumping from high places, however.

Halloween Costume Ideas A 'Hobbit' dwarf

A ‘Hobbit’ dwarf

There are 13 dwarfs to choose from in “The Hobbit,” which hits theaters in December. This is Fili. Key accessory here is a braided wig. Good luck.

Halloween Costume Ideas Katniss, from "The Hunger Games"

Katniss, from “The Hunger Games”

This one’s easy. Brown leather jacket, green pants, brown boots, a bow and arrows. Don’t forget to brad your hair. (It helps if you’re a female too.)

Halloween Costume ideas Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The quartet of crime-fighting turtles is back in 2012, with a new series on Nickelodeon and a press blitz that has seen them all over. If you can craft this one at home, you’re a pro. Otherwise, buy one. Prove you’re dedicated to your costume by carrying around a boxed pizza.

Halloween Costume Ideas 2Chainz

2 Chainz

Why wouldn’t 2012′s most ubiquitous rapper be on the list? It’s an easy set up too: wear two chains. (And probably some sunglasses.)

Halloween Costume Idea Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj

You honestly can get away with anything this year as long as you pop a pink wig on and say you’re Nicki Minaj. Be sure to pad your rear if you’re um … not as blessed as she is.

Halloween Costume Ideas The Huntsman

The Huntsman

From “Snow White and the Huntsmen,” look to see a lot of leather and daggers (fake of course). It would be nice if Chris Hemsworth came with the costume but we digress.

Halloween Costume Ideas Bane


Who wouldn’t want to wear that mask? I mean at least for a night. Get the mask, strap on some heavy duty combat gear, get into your finest nihilist mindset and you’ll be ready to go.

Halloween Costume Ideas Batman


Whether there’s a movie out or not, the Caped Crusader is always popular, especially with the kiddies. This year’s blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises,” certainly added interest.
