No disrespect to the Academy, but the real mark of a good movie is the number of Halloween costumes it inspires. Check out our favorite movie-character costumes this year!
1. Elsa from Frozen
Awesome costumes like this one make Frozen's Elsa the perfect choice for a Halloween costume. Who doesn't want to wear that blue dress and be a blonde for a day? Don't forget to put snowflakes in your hair and rock the smoky eye!
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Celebrate the new movie with this cute TMNT costume - fighting crime can be stylish, too! Though these guys aren't typically the most attractive bunch, you and your friends can band together to bring a little girliness to your costumes.
3. Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy
If you're up for a makeup challenge this Halloween, take on Gamora' s green skin and purple hair. Check out this awesome costume and get ready to defend your planet (or eat some candy).
If you think you'd make a wicked villain (or you could really rock the red lipstick and pointy hat), try a Maleficent costume this Halloween! You may not have the acting cred of Angelina Jolie, but we're pretty sure you would look awesome in the dress.
5. Katniss Everdeen from Catching Fire
Even if Katniss Everdeen can seem a little overdone, you can put a new twist on it this year by pairing a detailed black dress with a pair of handmade wings. Add some serious smoky eyes and glittery earrings, and you'll rock Katniss's more glam look.
6. The dolphin from Dolphin Tale 2
If you want to go for a sillier Halloween look, try going as the dolphin from this movie! Practice your dolphin sounds and pick up a costume like this one. You can even have your friend follow you around in a wetsuit as your trainer!
7. Mr. Peabody from Mr. Peabody & Sherman
If you haven't seen this "kids' movie" that somehow satisfies viewers of all ages, you need to rent it. Now. Plus, Mr. Peabody is the perfect Halloween costume. Dress in all white, make yourself ears and a tail, do your makeup with a black nose and whiskers, add a red bow tie and glasses and you're done!
