Are you up to the challenge of identifying all of these “uncut jaams” from 2022?
Each year, “Most Popular Halloween costumes ideas” take up their own section of our brains, and while we can’t speak for everyone, we can say that this is the case for us. Beginning on the first of November of each year, the cycle is cleansed and restarted as the pop culture zeitgeist produces a limitless number of new ideas that can be used to create the best costume for the next October.
The fashion expert Maria Loizou from Karen Millen has provided her predictions for the most popular costumes that will be seen at the upcoming spooky festivities in the year 2022. Regardless of whether you want to differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd on Halloween or you want to dominate the competition, these predictions can help.
A character in a movie or an episode of a television show may occasionally serve up a look that is so instantly recognizable that it is guaranteed to create waves. There comes a point in time when you realize, without a shadow of a doubt, “that’s it, that’s the one.” This may be the case with your favorite superhero (or supervillain), an epic end-scene final girl, or the same character you’ve been representing for years.
All Hallow’s Eve is a lovely time of the year that enables children and adults of all ages to wear a new identity that speaks to them, and each year there is always that handful you know you’ll be seeing all night long. This is because All Hallow’s Eve is celebrated on October 31. (Remember the year that Margot Robbie portrayed Harley Quinn?) Loizou has produced a list of costumes that are expected to be popular at Halloween parties this year based on what is trending across social media and which movies have rocked the box office. The list also takes into account which movies have been successful at the box office.
The first topic to be covered is Loizou’s forecast for women’s costumes, which is in part based on the unprecedented number of Google searches. According to Loizou, Halloween will take place on Wednesday this year. This prediction is based on the fact that a new Tim Burton series will debut on Netflix this year as well as the staggering average of 58,000 monthly searches conducted on Google. Even if this macabre maven has never been out of style, it’s possible that in 2022 we’ll be seeing more of Jenna Ortega’s polka dots and stripes. Around 50,000 people search Google each month for “Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) costume,” which is a product of Marvel Studios.
Is it any wonder that people want to tap into that Darkhold after her performance in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in which she appeared to be completely off her rocker? Finally, Loizou predicts that filmmaker Josh Safdie will have a legion of muses, as the Uncut Gems meme that was started by actress and model Julia Fox became ingrained in our minds this year like an ’80s ballad.
In reference to the decade of the 1980s, there will be an abundance of fake mustaches and aviator spectacles as a result of the world’s demand for speed brought on by Tom Cruise’s part revival in Top Gun: Maverick. With an average of 12,000 searches, it is a given that all of TOP GUN’s most accomplished users will extinguish our community’s collective ability to breathe. Dragons, on the other hand, might be more your speed if jet fighters aren’t really your thing.
In addition, according to Loizou, the D&D dungeon master Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), who appears in Stranger Things, will be making a return in the future (although not in Season 5)! Due to the tragic circumstances surrounding his passing, his devoted followers have been unable to move on, which means that October 31 is going to be an exciting day. With the release of House of the Dragon on HBO Max, heartthrob and Westerosi bad boy Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen is going to be competing for the title of the number one Halloween costume in 2022. This is on top of the fact that he is currently the President of the Hellfire Club.
After Austin Butler’s eerily transcendent portrayal of the King of Rock in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, the fashion expert anticipates sequins and leather to be popular choices for couple’s costumes. These materials will be paired with Priscilla Presley’s iconic ’60s bouffant and mini dresses to complete the look. If you want to take gaudy to the next level of campiness, costumes inspired by Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie, which stars Robbie and Ryan Gosling, are averaging approximately 15,000 searches a month on Google.
The film stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. In the event that a more traditional look is more to your liking, she suggests that Danny and Sandy from Grease are never, not a good idea. This is particularly, fitting in light of Olivia’s Newton-recent John’s demise.
When it comes to group outfits, Loizou recommends taking inspiration from another famous series on HBO Max, namely the cast of Euphoria, known for their forward-thinking style and use of glitter. Take advantage of the tear-streaked breakdown that Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) had, or literally any of Maddy (Alexa Demie) and Fez’s (Angus Cloud) day-to-day attire. And finally, for a more general overview, Loizou reports that the number of people searching for Hocus Pocus costumes has increased by 317% over the past three months. This is not surprising when one considers that the sequel Hocus Pocus 2 will be released in September, exactly 30 years after the first film! Grab your besties and run amok, amok, amok!
Our suggestion? Follow the eerie impulses in your heart. Be a deranged Pearl (Mia Goth), win the award for a most-hated costume with The Boys’ Homelander (Antony Starr), or celebrate the ever-expanding Star Wars Universe as Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor. All of these costumes are available for purchase in our online store. My dear friends, the options are virtually limitless. Best wishes for Halloween!
