Also noteworthy is the high-quality construction which sticks true to the costume worn in the movie.
6Wonder Woman T-Shirt With Cape And Headband
If you don’t want to go out on Halloween dressed in skimpy clothes, then maybe a more conservative version of the Wonder Woman costume is what you need. This particular costume involves a t-shirt with a Wonder Woman print, an attached cape, and a headband. Due to the fact that it involves quality materials, this costume is 100% machine washable. Furthermore, we should point out that this costume is officially licensed by DC Comics.
5Suicide Squad Deluxe Harley Quinn Costume
This officially licensed Suicide Squad Harley Quinn costume involves a jacket with an attached top, sequin shorts, fishnet tights, and a belt.

Made from 100% polyester, this costume can be easily washed by hand, which is great because you can use it time and time again.
4Classic Muscle Chest Deadpool Costume

3Men’s Jurassic World T-Rex Inflatable Costume
This particular costume fits a 42 to 44-inch jacket size with a 34 to 36-inch waist, more than enough for any adult. Given its size, this costume requires that you inflate it before putting it on, which kind of makes sense given the fact that it is 3.5′ tall. For convenience, it also comes with a battery operated fan to keep you cool inside the costume and understandably so given how hot it can get inside without one.
Like the name suggests, this is a gorilla costume which should be pretty self-explanatory, although this particular costume is quite popular as of lately. Now, you have to understand that although it may look just like any other gorilla costume, the fact that it is topical will make all the difference. With that said, we should point out that this costume has an 84% polyester / 16% acrylic construction with faux fur, which means that you can wash it by hand with no issues to speak of.
1Horse Head Mask
For some reason, these horse masks are all the rage nowadays and understandably so given how unusual they are. As a matter of fact, they are so unusual that they usually act as a great conversation piece. In this regard, this mask can very well be worn at normal parties or any other type of celebration for a gag, as it is a great conversation starter. In terms of construction, let us point out that it is made almost entirely from latex, a construction that makes the mask very comfortable and durable.
