- Halloween 2021 is expected to throw up a range of new costumes
- Mony hiest red boiler suit and a Dali mask could be a raging hit

There are now many more possibilities for women and, indeed, men looking for a fun Halloween costume thanks to a multitude of intriguing anti-heroes popularised in Disney movies, Marvel shows, and comic book movies. As Halloween 2021 approaches, here is a list of characters that you can dress up as and be the odd one out.
It was Netflix's best-rated foreign language show, a thrilling thriller that was a huge success. The first season featured a gang of robbers dressed in revolutionary-red overalls and Salvador Dal masks named after big towns. They broke into the Royal Mint of Spain, kidnapped 67 workers, and physically printed money worth 2.4 billion euros.
It's easy to see why dressing up as a Heister is so popular. It's an extremely comfortable unisex alternative. All you'll need is a red boiler suit and a Dali mask; fake money isn't required.
Harley Quinn costume
Owing to Margot Robbie's superb performances in Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, and The Suicide Squad, the DC anti-hero with a distinctive Brooklyn accent and a love of anarchy has skyrocketed in popularity.
The movie is of varying quality, but she is consistently terrific. A fantastic option for a lady who enjoys chaos, short shorts, or simply needs a reason to swing a baseball bat at night.
Maleficent is a character based on the evil fairy godmother from Charles Perrault's Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. The outfit is also appropriate for a Halloween gathering.
The Purge franchise has become a modern movie blockbuster, with a simple premise: all crime is legal for one night. The film is an allegory on class differences and, later in the series, racial divides. Either that, or it's a pretext to display ultra-violent, horrific murders. It's no surprise that it's a popular costume: it's basically a scary, sinister mask plus some comfy hoodies and tracks pants.
Lord Voldemort has one of the creepiest appearances of all. All you need for his costume is a black robe. His makeup, on the other hand, appears to be quite complex. If you're a huge fan of Halloween or Voldemort, go for it.
