I can’t wait for Halloween. The teeth-rotting candy is all well and good, but there’s no other time of the year when a grown person can dress up as giant rabbit or Borat in a mankini without being shown a breathalyzer. So what, you ask, is the best costume for 2010?
If you’ve been searching for the answer, we’ve put together a few of the best 2010 Halloween costume ideas (two for the gents, two for the ladies) from BuyCostumes. Use our free BuyCostumes coupon if something piques your interest and get a full 10% off.

Seriously, who doesn’t want to be Tony Stark? He’s Bruce Wayne with a goatee and not nearly as much psychological trauma. This would be a great costume idea even if there wasn’t a blockbuster Iron Man movie released this year. Bonus points go to the comic nerds who’ll venture out on Halloween night with a martini glass in hand. Enormous wealth and Black Widow sidekick are unfortunately not included.
If you’ve never had a Lady Gaga song stuck in your head, you’re lying. (Or you don’t listen to pop radio. Fair enough.) It’s hard to deny her influence, though, and what better way to celebrate Gaga’s world domination than with a crazy outfit? If you’re too demure to wear a lobster facemask or telephone wig, there’s always this rocking Poker Face ensemble. Hold ‘em like they do in Texas, but please don’t try to sing if you don’t have Gaga’s pipes.
If you thought the vampire trend was dead, take a look at The Twilight Saga: Eclipse‘s worldwide box office: $654 Million. And it was only released three months ago. Suffice it to say, vampires aren’t over yet. This costume includes a rather stylish cape, which has been sadly missing from most modern portrayals of vampires. Can’t be immortal without a cape, if you ask me.
Wonder Woman and Supergirl may be able to fly and deflect bullets – but do they fight crime in a purple wig? If you were enamored by the foul-mouthed mini-superheroine from this year’s gory superhero epic, rejoice. You can now live out your fantasies of beating up thugs and zip-lining across rooftops (all for the good of mankind, of course). Wanna play?What do you consider to be the best costume for 2010?
