Dressing up for Halloween has long been a tradition that many kids at heart take into their adult life. It’s worth mentioning though that many of these costumes become a bit more risqué, while still keeping the traditional costumes of youth available for adults. This year, the selection of Halloween costumes for women continue to rise in number and popularity. The summer blockbusters always bring about new female characters popular come Halloween time, and this year was no different with the likes of the character Harley Quinn and a return to Ghostbusters.
