Best Female Villain Halloween Costumes

Updated on February 13, 2018

Choose From These Top 3 Female Villain Costumes

When Halloween rolls in I love to dress as a female villain. Here are 3 female costumes of evildoers that I think would be great for parties and are really close to the actual outfits worn in the movie. Everyone knows it's the wicked women that have the most fun. There's nothing holding them back from doing whatever they want.

Movie characters are some of the best characters to dress like on Halloween because they are almost always recognizable. There's nothing worse than trying to explain to people who or what you are dressed up like. I want people to know exactly who I am pretending to be for one night only.

Plus when you dress up as an evil lady for the night you can be wicked or naughty and it's okay. Some of these costumes are really sexy too and yet are still perfectly fine for a costume party or for going trick or treating.

What I love most about these costumes is that people will also struggle to know it's me. You can get up to a lot of mischief when people don't know it's you behind the blue mask etc.

Top Female Villains

Here's a few ideas...

Cruella De Vil Costume

When I think of evil female characters, the first one that comes to mind is Cruella De Vil. She even has evil in her name. What more could you ask for!

To think that someone would want to steal some really cute spotted puppies so she can make some new clothing is tough to swallow. However, I have to admit that Glenn Close played the role perfectly and had children and puppy owners hiding behind the sofa after her portrayal of this vixen.

Yes we love our soft garments but this lady takes it to a whole new level.

Dressing like this rascal is really quite easy. All it takes is a wig that is half black and the other half white, a short dress (preferably black), some kind of stole (preferably fake fur), she normally wears red or black high heels and some long red gloves. Add a cigarette holder to complete the look!

If you are looking for a memorable costume then this is the one for you!

Who would have thought a Disney movie would be the inspiration of one of the scariest female characters?

Cruella doesn't have to go to the party by herself. If she has a partner or kids then they can go as dalmations too. You can see some great costumes for them too below.

Mystique Costume

One of my favorite colors is blue and there are lots of creatures and characters that have been that color in movies. Off the top of my head the Smurfs and Avatar characters come to mind.

One of my favorite cartoons as a child were the X-men. I loved how the women were so strong and had great powers like the guys. In a lot of comics it's normally the girl that's the damsel in distress and I liked that X-men wasn't like that.

Although I loved Storm and Rogue, I have to admit that Mystique is one of my favorite female mutants.

In the movies, she's been portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence, who also plays Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games. Mystique was young and innocent. When she grows up, she chooses to side with Magneto and let her mutant side rule her and she becomes more wicked and causes mischief. Although who can blame her when she can make herself look like anyone!

However, when she's not pretending to be someone else she's in her natural blue state.

I think this Mystique costume would be awesome as it would be a real transformation. And people wouldn't really know it was you if you do it properly. I love that the whole suit comes together so if you don't want to paint your body you don't have to.

However, you'll still need to paint your face blue so check out the video below to help you achieve an authentic look.

Tips on Completing the Mystique Look

This girl shows you how to make yourself look just as good as Mystique from the X-men. And she does all of this with just blue body paint, Flesh Latex and red hairspray. Everything else is normal makeup that you probably already have.

If you decide to go with the costume above, then all you have to do is the face, as the bodysuit is already blue and the costume comes with a flame red wig.

Mystique Needs Friends If Mystique is part of a couple then here are some options for you.

Wolverine is big at the moment and everyone loves a little wolf man. This would be perfect for a mother and son party too.


Wicked Witch of the West

Return to Oz

Last year saw the latest movie in the Oz franchise called Oz The Great and Powerful. It was all about the creation of the Wicked Witch of the West and how she became the witch we all knew in the Wizard of Oz.

This year the Wicked Witch of the West is likely to be a very popular costume for women.

It's a great costume to choose as it's iconic and everyone knows of the witch that tried to stop Dorothy. Even the younger generation have been clued in as the new movie ha been bought and watched on DVD countless times.

This Wicked Witch costume is super simple and all you'll need is some green face paint (remember to do your hands too) and a crooked witch broom to complete the look.

And if you're looking to dress up as part of a group, then there are lots of Oz costumes for both adults and kids to choose from.

However, you'll have to come up with your own cackle!
