The California Costumes’ Women’s Swashbuckler Costume or a female Pirate Swashbuckler isn’t one of the most creative Halloween costumes for women, but it’s a good role model for girls!

“Wardrobe Malfunction” Halloween Costume
The Wardrobe Malfunction costume isn’t one of the best or most creative Halloween costumes for girls. And, it may be a boring thing of the past for women. It features a huge naked boob popping out of a dress or blouse. Not a real one – a fake plastic Halloween boob.
But maybe you want to get wild and crazy this Halloween! Here’s what Gwen Stefani says: “Being in a band you can wear whatever you want – it’s like an excuse for Halloween everyday.” Wouldn’t that be wild – to dress up like it’s Halloween every day, and go to work? It’d be exhausting for introverts, who don’t like to be the center of attention. If you’re an introvert, you might enjoy wearing a inside a mask or glamorous head piece, such as a Venetian mask that revelers wear at the Carnivale every year in Venice.
Jane of “Tarzan and Jane” fame
I had the Jane Halloween costume for years, and never got tired of wearing it! I love how powerful, strong, and smart Tarzan’s Jane is – but my Halloween costume wasn’t the best because it was too revealing. What I love about this costume, though, is that you can be really creative in the accessories you choose (eg, a saber tooth tiger necklace, bones in your hair. That’s why I included one – it’s an easy homemade Halloween costume for women.
Wonder Woman Halloween costume

Sexy Witch Halloween costume for women
There are so many witch costumes – and even the sexy witch Halloween costumes for women aren’t the best or most creative costumes anymore.
That said, however, you could ditch the old notion of a witch wearing a shapeless black cape and hideous nose. Instead, create a simple homemade costume out of a sexy black dress with a ragged black hem and sleeves, black choker necklace, wild black hair, high heeled black shoes, and dramatic gothic makeup. This could be one of the most creative Halloween costumes for girls and women because it’ll be unique. Not a store-bought costume.
