Harley Quinn probably likes to have a night out on the town just like anyone else, and if she’s wearing a sequin dress like the one PureLight Cosplay’s modeling in these photos, she’s all set. The gown and gloves combination is positively elegant, and the high-cut slit adds a little of that Harley Quinn sass we all love.

You may have heard that NBA2K15 has fancy new face tech that’s riddled with glitches. It’s been pretty embarrassing for 2K, but I’ll give them credit for trying to make some lemonade out of those lemons.

That’s right, you can wear those glitches as masks and freak out all the kids for Halloween. Print out your own mask here.

This brilliant Halloween costume is more terrifying than any bloodied mass murderer. It’s Darla from Finding Nemo complete with headgear and a fish in a bag.

The fish looks okay now, but by the end of Halloween, he’s definitely going to be a goner.

Aw, this is absolutely the cutest Mechwarrior cosplay you’ll ever see. It features Ryan and his son Geraint in a costume that, according to his wife, was planned way before the child was even born.

My husband had this costume planned for several years, long before we had a child. The inspiration was a computer game he played in high school. When we found out we were having a baby, he got to work. Ryan sketched out the rough designs probably two months before Geraint was born. With so much baby stuff coming in the mail, we had plenty of boxes for him to work with, so he just had to buy a few things to make it.

It’s designed to look like a Sunder mech and is made from a PVC framework covered with cardboard. There are also some foamboard details to complete the design.

Mystique costume

I like when people put a lot of time and planning into their Halloween costumes, and Redditor drbonedaddy and his girlfriend went all out. He became Gambit, and she put together a rather awesome Mystique costume. She even dyed her contacts! Here’s more info about the build:

Wasn’t easy at all. The spandex suit had to first be landmarked, then painted. Each side took three to four hours and had to be allowed to dry overnight. Applying the latex for the scales on her face and painting it took two to three hours as well. She dyed her hair for the costume which was another hour. So in total it was roughly a 10 hour process over the course of a few days. I’m sure there are some very intricate costumes posted on here, but it really was a painstaking process to make it come together

DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

Little Big Barda

It turns out that Big Barda can be adorable and fierce at the same time. Pattie Marcotte of Heroic Girls said Anya wanted to be Big Barda for Halloween this year, and despite the challenges of making the costume, she and her family figured it out. They crafted every part of Anya’s ensemble from the armor to the Mega Rod. The finished outfit is absolutely wonderful.

Infinity Gauntlet dress

The Infinity Gauntlet is a dangerous weapon in the hands of the Marvel villain Thanos. It holds six soul gems, and when the powers of those jewels combine… well, that’s when it’s time to hold onto your butts. One cosplayer took the concept of the powerful gauntlet and turned it into a creative dress. Why wear the Infinity Gauntlet on your hand when you can cover your whole body with it? I think Thanos should adopt this look.

The queen in Aliens 2 is absolutely terrifying, but this one is simply beautiful. It was made by animation director Ashley J. Long and features a headpiece made from 50-60 pieces of cardstock that were carefully arranged and glued together over the course of two months. Jewels were added for a little creepy sparkle and the whole thing sits atop a bike helmet that secures it to her head.

There’s also a paper mache egg and a spine made from aluminum. Add a very elegant black dress and you have a seriously stunning outfit.

Star-Lord Lolita Dress

I have no doubt that Peter Quill’s red Star-Lord jacket from Guardians of the Galaxy will be all the rage at Halloween parties this year. It’s easy to find a jacket that resembles what he wore in the film, and all you need to add to sell the look is a walkman. If you wanted to put something a little different together though, you can’t go wrong with this lolita-style Star-Lord dress by Siren.

Though I adore the red overcoat, my favorite part of this costume design is the Awesome Mix messenger bag. I bet we’ll see a cosplayer tackle this look when convention season swings back into gear.
