Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2009: Girls

It's almost that time of year again where witches fly through the air, ghosts come out of hiding and scary parties are held all over the world. Just like the fashion industry, Halloween costumes come in trends; what was cool last year may not go down so well in 2009 (though there are some get-ups that remain timeless year in year out). That's why we're presenting the Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2009: Girls.

No. 10: Elizabeth Swann

Elizabeth Swann

To emulate the swashbuckling look of Pirates Of The Carribean's Elizabeth Swann, you'll need a long-sleeved white shirt, a dark vest, dark pants, a tricorn hat and long boots or boot covers available at any costume shop. If you'd rather wear Elizabeth's wedding dress, you'll need to find a full gold gown from the colonial period - check second-hand and thrift clothing stores for long, white gowns you can play around with to recreate the movie look.

No. 9: High School Musical's Sharpay Evans

Sharpay Evans

Bop to the top of your High School Musical cast as Sharpay Evans with her sequined light-blue velvet dress with black vertical stripes and long ruffled skirt. Get her long bouncy blonde hair with a wig and add a headset microphone to leave your hands free for dancing. If you want to dress like Sharpay on a school day try a red-satin bejeweled tank top, gold capri leggings and a matching gold bow headband. Don’t forget to add her signature oversized pink sunglasses and broach jewelry. Or try on Sharpay’s golf costume: a pink-and-green-striped sequined dress with white collar and bow, one white, right-handed glove, pink glasses and sparkling jewelry.

No. 8: Goth Girl

Goth Girl

If you're planning on going trick-or-treating or spending Halloween with your boyfriend, why not dress up as a couple? For your half of the costume, think about dressing up as an undead ghoul in a fancy party dress (ripped and torn, of course). Add scuffed heels and makeup to achieve that living-dead look. A droopy flower corsage from your hair-raising honey will finish off the costume.

No. 7: Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana

Being Hannah Montana for Halloween is fun - and a pretty easy costume to make yourself. All you'll need is eye liner, pink lipstick, a long blonde wig and some fun, sparkly clothes. For accessories, try a studded belt, maybe a pink- or red-leather jacket, tennis shoes, jewelry and a microphone. In terms of showing off Hannah's true personality, remember to be happy, bubbly and sing as much as you want!

No. 6: Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is quickly becoming as popular a costume as her fictional alter ego, Hannah Montana. To get the right Miley look, think about the outfits she wears most, like T-shirts with bold graphics on them. Pick a t-shirt with a message about peace or a Beatles logo for an obvious Miley look. Don't have the right shirt? You can spray paint a t-shirt at home - ask your mom for help.

No. 5: Alice In Wonderland


Yes, it's Alice in Wonderland - with a new look. You'll need Alice's signature blue dress with white puffy sleeves, a white apron that's trimmed in black, black-and-white striped gloves and leggings. It's a more grown up look for Alice we think you'll love!

No. 4: Madonna


Before Britney and Beyonce there was Madonna. Throughout her career Madonna has had a variety of looks. With fishnet stockings, a halter top, mini skirt, ankle boots, a teased blonde wig and loads of dark "80s" makeup, you can recreate one of the famous pop-star's many looks - choose your fave and go with it!

No. 3: Cheerleader


It may not really be the most original Halloween costume ever, but it's still one of the most popular. You can dress as a cheerleader pretty easily - all you need are pigtails in your hair, big fluffy pompoms to carry around w

ith you and a pleated skirt to complete the look. This is definitely a great costume choicer for any girl who really wants to show her school spirit this Halloween!

No. 2: Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama

She hasn't been in office long as First Lady, but Michelle Obama has definitely made a big impression of lots of women and young girls in the United States and around the world. If Mrs. President is a role model for you, or someone you really look up to, why not dress up as her for Halloween this year? While there's been plenty of buzz about her excellent fashion sense, she doesn't really have a defined style yet so the best thing to do would be to get a magazine photo of her in a great outfit and try to recreate it using things you have at home in your own closet.

No. 1: Rainbow Brite

Rainbow Brite

This is the best costume for color-lovers! Rainbow Brite has always been a colorful character, with her rainbow-themed dress. Just grab all the rainbow-colored clothing you can find and throw it on for a costume that's a real colorful blur!
