If you love “House of the Dragon” but you’re looking for a more realistic costume, this handmade Daemon Targaryen cosplay suit is a great choice.

2022 saw plenty of supply chain disruptions, including a devastating-to-many Sriracha shortage! Show your love for the rooster sauce with this Tipsy Elves women’s hot sauce bottle costume (a men’s version is also available).

(image)

Elvis costumes, those old Halloween staples, will see a similar renaissance this year, thanks to the success of Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” biopic. This deluxe Elvis costume comes with a sequined jumpsuit (sunglasses sold separately!)

(image)

Charcuterie boards are all over Instagram and TikTok, so it’s no surprise to see the trendy grazing boards show up as a new costume option for 2022!

If you’re in the market for a super-scary costume that won’t break the bank, look no further than this terrifying Grim Reaper costume. Scythe included.

(image)

“Top Gun” costumes are popular every year, but with the release of “Top Gun: Maverick” in 2022, there’s sure to be a big revival of Maverick, Goose and Charlie costumes this year. Spirit Halloween has the officially licensed “Top Gun” costume, which comes with a flight suit and cap.

The year’s most popular TV shows tend to turn up as Halloween costumes, and luckily for fans of the television adaptation of “A League of Their Own” there are plenty of styles to choose from, since costumes based on the 1992 movie have been perennial Halloween favorites.

(image)

Witches are a Halloween classic, and we love this turn on the standard witch costume inspired by one of the most famous witches of all time: the Wicked Witch of the West.

(image)

You know? Pickle costumes are just funny. They just are! We can’t say why, but we don’t think you’ll disagree.

(image)

“Yellowstone” is a massive hit with a massively devoted following. If you want to get in touch with your inner Rip this Halloween — and who wouldn’t?! — this Rip Wheeler costume kit is for you. If you identify more as a Kayce than a Rip, there are more “Yellowstone” costumes to choose from.

(image)

Historical and literature costumes are a good way to reach back in time without running the risk of wearing something that might cause offense. This gorgeous Medusa costume kit includes a dress with attached shoulder drapes, a detachable gold braided rope belt and a molded plastic crown of snakes.

(image)

You’ll be the highlight of the Halloween party in this bright yellow highlighter costume! The tunic-style pullover costume has an attached headpiece.

(image)

The Sam costume is one of Spirit Halloween’s creepiest new looks for 2022. The officially licensed Sam costume features a one-piece jumpsuit and a hooded mask; a burlap trick-or-treat sack is sold separately.

(image)

If you loved playing with a Magic 8-Ball as a kid, you will love love love this one-piece Magic 8-Ball costume. The fortune teller is fabricated from sequins — rub your hands down it and watch it switch its answer from “all signs point to yes” to “not likely.”

(image)

The Ted Lasso costume is another new TV-inspired idea for Halloween 2022. Want to make it a group or couples costume? There’s a full line of “Ted Lasso” costumes to choose from.

(image)

Sure, you could go as a Disney princess, but isn’t dressing up as a Disney villain a lot more fun? Disney’s official deluxe Maleficent costume comes with a dress and headpiece; add her staff to complete the look.

(image)

The animal kingdom offers plenty of costume inspiration. If you’re looking to stand out among a sea of lions and tigers and bears, this praying mantis onesie takes things up a notch in the unexpected costume department.

(image)

Fruits are another costume theme that are ripe for the picking (sorry, sorry, couldn’t resist!) and what fruit is more fun than a pineapple? In addition to being super cute, the great thing about this pineapple costume from Tipsy Elves is that it’s basically like wearing an oversized hoodie.

(image)

Speaking of comfortable costumes! If you’re looking for a costume that is easily recognizable and super comfortable, you can’t go wrong with a Camp Crystal Lake Counselor outfit. Not only will you be in shorts and a T-shirt, you’ll also have the perfect excuse to wear a pair of sneakers. Your feet will thank you.

(image)

A lot of traditional Halloween costumes now feel outmoded, but a good old-fashioned pirate never goes out of style. This is a great choice for ladies who want something a little risqué that doesn’t veer into the ridiculous.

(image)

Superhero costumes are a staple of Halloween — after all, who doesn’t want to be a hero for a day? — and this Mr. Incredible costume comes with all the necessary pieces to transform yourself into a day-saver. The deluxe costume kit comes with a padded top, pants, mask and gloves, so all you need to add is bravado.

(image)

If superheroes aren’t your thing but you’re into the whole savior vibe, be someone’s knight in shining armor with this men’s medieval knight costume kit. It includes a tunic, cape and chainmail-look headpiece; add a sword to complete the look.

(image)

For men whose tastes run a little more to the macabre, this Victorian vampire costume will have you cutting a dashing — if a bit dark and sinister — figure through this year’s Halloween parties.

(image)

The genius thing about this costume is that everyone loves Swedish Fish, making you the most popular guy at the party. Up your game by bringing along treat-sized bags of Swedish Fish to hand out.

(image)

Piñatas are just a lot of fun — and so is this onesie piñata costume from Tipsy Elves. But as fun as this outfit is, remember that it comes with a downside: You’ll probably be fielding whacks from the Renaissance knight’s sword and Maleficent’s staff all night.

(image)

The worst thing about Halloween as a kid was when your mom made you wear a coat over your costume. This Salt-N-Pepa outfit solves the problem of needing to stay warm in your costume, since a jacket is included.

(image)

The WWE’s officially licensed Macho Man Randy Savage costume includes a sleeveless shirt, red jacket with fringe, pants, leopard print trimmed cowboy hat and hand wraps. A wig kit that includes a wig, mustache, sunglasses and bandana is sold separately.

(image)

On the flip side, this Richard Simmons costume, with its skimpy shorts and tank top, is well-suited for warm climates or parties that you know will get extra sweaty.

(image)

The great thing about dressing up as Prince for Halloween is that so many of his songs serve as directives to get the party started. Let it be known when you roll up to the Halloween festivities that you’re ready to party like it’s 1999, or exhort fellow partygoers, “Let’s go crazy!”

(image)

HBO’s “House of the Dragon” is an absolutely massive TV event — ratings for its premiere topped 10 million viewers! So it stands to reason that HotD costumes will be hot tickets in 2022. We love this inflatable dragon rider costume that comes in blue or red.

(image)

Inflatable costumes are a fun way to take up space on Halloween. Literally! No one will miss you in this massive inflatable alien ride costume that comes with a quick-fill air pump.

(image)

Partygoers are sure to flock to you — get it, get it? — when you show up to the Halloween soiree in this delightful inflatable flamingo costume.

(image)

There are plenty of obvious choices when it comes to inflatable animal costumes, but for people looking to deviate from the norm, this inflatable sloth is a hilarious choice. No one expects an inflatable sloth to show up at the Halloween party! Which is exactly why you should do so.

(image)

Animals lend themselves perfectly to inflatable costumes, and this inflatable rubber chicken — that old staple of slapstick comedy — outfit is a twist on the classic chicken.

(image)

If you like the look of inflatables but don’t want the inconvenience of lugging around a big, bulky costume all night, inflatable accessories are the way to go. Plus, they’re a great choice if you need a quick, last-minute costume. This giant portable phone is a hilarious throwback to when phones actually were this huge.
