costumesThe best Halloween costumes for each year often follow the movies that have been released in any given year.  This year is no exception. 

In addition to movie related costumes,  we feature several popular Halloween costumes for girls that are not associated with a new movie release.

Some Halloween costumes are traditional, yet with a new twist.

There are also several fabulous girls Halloween costumes that are inspired by the dolls that our children love. and others that are just plain fun to wear.

Halloween Costumes for 2024

As always, television shows, series and movies are the biggest source of inspiration for Halloween costumes in 2024.  The Lion King is back! Plus, with the release of “Thelma the Unicorn”, unicorns will definitely be popular.   Not surprisingly, “Princess Power” is also popular, but your child may prefer Wednesday Addams.  They are all fabulous costumes that would be fun to wear.

The contributors of Halloween Haven really like the Princess costume with lights in the gown for added safety and visibility.  They are lit by led bulbs that do not get hot.  Plus, the gown can be hand-washed if you remove the batteries (in some brands, lights must be removed to wash. Please check the manufacturers wash instructions).  There are a variety of sizes, colors and styles to choose from.  They are pretty dresses with or without the lights on.

Cheerleader costumes are always in high demand, but thanks to “Zombies 3”, the pink & white cheerleader costume will be the most sought after this year. Everybody loves Sonic!

Halloween Costumes that are Still Popular and Available

This year our Halloween costumes are inspired by television and streaming more than new theater movies.  Some of our favorite characters are not new to us.   She-Ra & Carmen Sandiego are enjoying a new resurgence of popularity.  Because we see them daily on television, we are reminded of how much we love our beloved heroes, Super Monsters, Baby Sharks, or Paw Patrol “pups”.  After all, Halloween is all about the fun of dressing the part we would like to play and the characters we admire.

A Look Back at Halloween Costumes for 2019 & 2020

Previous years have brought us some truly awesome movies, which means fantastic Halloween costumes for girls.

With the release of Frozen 2, Elsa and Anna costumes are sure to be a hit this Halloween, especially for little girls who were babies when Frozen first released.  Plus, “How to Train Your Dragon”  was also a 2019 release and that costume is fabulous.

Thanks to the Avenger’s Endgame movie, the Avenger’s are back again!  Any of the previous Avenger costumes will be “hot” this Halloween, but we also have Captain Marvel.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters was another great movie released this year.  Okay, we know Godzilla is a male, but if a little girl wants to be Godzilla, why not?!!!  In addition to Godzilla, himself, Mothra is a main character in this movie.   Little girls will enjoy playing Mothra even if they aren’t familiar with the movie or the story.

Clearly, there are many options available for girls this year that range from the always popular princess costume, a whimsical fairy tale costume, or even a magnificent superhero. A girl can be anything she wants to be!

Awesome Girls Costumes from Movies Released Prior to 2019

The movies released in 2018 brought us more great Halloween costumes for girls!  Topping the selections are the costumes from the ever popular Marvel Avengers: Infinity War Movie.  Because so many of the Avengers were included in that movie, girls have a choice between Black Widow, Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), Shuri or Gamora.  Unfortunately, there is not a Scarlet Witch costume made for girls, therefore we have included the adult costume in the x-small size for your consideration.

Now let’s step away from the theater and take a look at a few more really great costumes this year for girls that did not originate from movies. However, we are including the Descendants costumes here since Halloween Haven knows how many girls love that show.

With the release of the new “Wonder Woman” movie in 2017, as well as the “Justice League” movie, Wonder Woman will hands down be the #1 girls costume for this year. All girls would like to feel as if they could overcome any evil in the world. Therefore, they will enjoy being Wonder Woman themselves. It is likely girls will wish to wear this costume more than once, so I recommend buying a durable costume that can survive being washed lots of times.

Poplar Halloween Costumes from Movies

The most popular costumes from movies usually change each year and there are some truly awesome new costumes related to new movie releases in 2017 – 2019.  However, there were a few children’s movies released in 2016 and prior years, that are just a popular today.  Those movies, and the costumes, have not taken a backseat to newer releases.

Halloween Costumes from Movies

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was released in 2017, but Rey is sure to be a favorite regardless. The newly released photos show Rey ready for Jedi training. You may opt for last years costume, or make your own in the likeness of the 2017 movie.

Rey is wearing cargo style pants, a sleeveless v-neck top (similar to the one featured below), and a brown utility belt. The most important part of this “assemble your own” Rey costume would be the light saber. Be sure you include the cool light saber!

Another new movie in 2017 was the remake of the always popular “Beauty and the Beast”

In 2016, Star Trek Beyond brought Uhura back into focus, while the Suicide Squad reminded us of Harley Quinn.  There was one new Star Trek character that made a huge impression on audiences and I have no doubt that fans will want to dress like Jaylah.  However, the Jaylah cosplay costumes are pretty expensive therefore we recommend assembling your own Jaylah costume with faded jeans and a square neck fitted top similar to to one we have featured below.  The important thing for a Jaylah costume is the face paint.  It will be the focus of the costume regardless!

These costumes, just like the movies, have not yet taken a backseat to the latest releases. They may well become some of the new “traditional” costumes for Halloween in years to come.
