2014 Most Popular Halloween Costumes for Girls & Women

From the big screen to the small screen, the most popular Halloween costumes for girls and women will be characters from this year’s favorite movies and TV shows. Whether you’re trick-or-treating, going to a Halloween party, or visiting a Salt Lake City haunted house, these costumes will help you stay on trend.


This Disney movie features two strong female leads. Both Elsa and her sister Anna are great Halloween costume choices for young girls or anyone who is young at heart. Since the setting of this movie is in a winter wonderland, you’ll be sure to feel warm and in character in the Salt Lake City cold weather as you wait outside a haunted house. If Elsa or Anna costumes are not your bag, you can dress as Olaf the snowman.

Game of Thrones

This HBO series just finished its fourth season and has been renewed for a fifth. Like any good Salt Lake City haunted house, this fantasy show is not short on captivating characters. This means plenty of inspiration for popular Halloween costumes for women and girls.

Last year, Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons were a popular costume, but you should expect to see her again in 2014. Cersei Lannister and Sansa Stark are also good options if you have a hankering to sport some braids. If you’re rocking the short hair, Brienne of Tarth or Arya Stark will also make great Halloween costumes. In search of a creepier look? Most Salt Lake City haunted house fans are. A White Walker may be your best choice.


After this movie rocked at the box office, the Sleeping Beauty villain is sure to be a perfect costume for girls and women who want to dress on the spooky side. Expect to see this costume at any Salt Lake City haunted attraction, because it is the ideal outfit for fans of fairy tales with a sinister twist. The costume will require a black dress, black headpiece and black wings—and a few ounces of evil.

Hunger Games

With the last movie of the series coming out in November, a Katniss Everdeen costume will get you excited to finish the story of this District 12 heroine. The costume requires a hooded sweatshirt and shoes you can run in, so if you’re at a Utah haunted house, there is no doubt that you will make it through first—just make sure your bow and arrows are securely placed!

Orange is the New Black

As one of the most talked-about TV shows, Orange is the New Black will make a great group costume for women. If you are going as Piper, the orange jumpsuit will keep you comfortable all night whether you are partyin’ or booking it through a Salt Lake City haunted house. If you’re looking to make a statement, dressing up as Red will give you a chance to show off your spicy and bold side. Groups can either wear orange or tan jumpsuits to represent the rest of the women at the Litchfield Penitentiary.
