For some Halloween fans, an off-the-rack superhero costume just won't cut it. No, some people go all out for this holiday in the best way possible. In fact, the most expensive Halloween costumes look like something straight from a movie. They're jaw-dropping, richly detailed, and seriously luxe.
First, there are hand-sewn, gorgeous ballgowns that look like something a legit princess would own. Then there are replicas of movie and TV show costumes that are wildly accurate. When you throw a little tech into the mix with lights and sounds, well, these costumes are just beyond amazing.
Plus, as someone who pretty much sucks at sewing and crafty activities, I absolutely acknowledge the time and talent it takes to make these creations. When you consider the hours of labor and cost of materials involved, the costume prices aren't necessarily unreasonable. Seriously, I'm in awe of the people who make these elaborate and beautiful creations.
And even if you don't plan on dropping several grand for a costume this year, it's still fun to check out these aspirational Halloween looks. At least it'll make you feel a bit better about spending a little cash on costume supplies at Party City or Spirit or HalloweenCostumes.com. Even the most deluxe costumes at the shops are kind of a steal compared to these luxury getups.
