Stuck for a costume idea?

Well fear not… Pinterest has revealed the biggest looks of 2017 to help you get those creative juices flowing. Some of them will surprise you, others not so much.

Last year was the “year of the Harley Quinn” so it is no wonder another blockbuster film has taken over number one spot for this year’s most wanted look. Yep, according to the site, Pennywise from the movie It is trending with searches up 941% than ever before.

Another big hit which were not expecting but now seriously loving, is the giraffe. Yes, it looks like giraffe makeup is in and it’s actually seriously cute.


It also looks like “pixelated faces” are making it BIG with thousands of tagged posts, this look kinda just looks like me after a night out. Scary.

Another one of Pinterest’s 2017 favourites is Wednesday Adams. Now this one actually surprised us as we thought it was seen as dated? However, wrong we were and it’s still up there holding it’s own.

And finally, a big look for last year and 2017 again is the galaxy. We are not sure how to label this Halloween costume but lets just say “galaxy girl”?

We love them!
