Best Pop Culture Costumes of 2014
Last Halloween was dominated with pop stars–we had dozens of Mileys twerking in teddy bear suits and flash mobs showing off their own “Gangnam Style.” In 2014, though, it looks like the fandoms have taken over.
1) Guardians of the Galaxy
There’s no use resisting it–you’re hooked on a feeling. With the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy that came out in the beginning of August, you’re sure to see a whole host of Star-Lords and Rocket Raccoons filling the streets. The team of quirky assassins and bounty hunters stole our hearts with their off-beat jokes and roguish charm…and really, who didn’t love Peter Quill’s duster?
That won’t stop the Avengers from defending the streets, though. The all-star band of Marvel heavyweights is sure to pop up in parties around the world, especially now that its members are getting some intense updates (hello, Princess Thor). Expect fans to celebrate their favorite characters’ long-standing histories by dressing up as tiny Hulks and sultry Captain Americas.
The little movie that could. Frozen was never expected to be a hit, but once it was released in November of 2013, it floored audiences. The stunning soundtrack, gorgeous animation, and powerful princesses enchanted everyone. Join the holiday fun as a tiny Anna or grown-up Elsa and you’re bound to melt any frozen heart.
4) My Little Pony
Whether it’s the goofy characters or conversations that aren’t necessarily for kids, there’s something about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that makes people go crazy. Ladies small and tall will be dressing up as the sporty Rainbow Dash and peppy Pinkie Pie.
5) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
These four brothers are holding on strong! Last year little boys everywhere were trick-or-treating as Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo because of the massively popular animated cartoon. This year ninjas of all ages will be suiting up as their favorite turtle from the gritty 2014 film.
