A Na'vi

What you'll need:
• Blue body paint
• Dark wig with small braids
• Pointy ears
• Loincloth
• 3-D glasses (optional)

If you suit up as one of the giant blue warriors from James Cameron's megahit film Avatar, fellow trick-or-treaters will instantly know who you are. (When a movie makes more than $1 billion worldwide, everyone has at least heard of it.) If you're willing to go blue from head to toe (it helps if you're tall), dressing as a resident of the planet Pandora is a striking choice for your Halloween party. And since movies can be so thematically similar, all women have to do is take an old Pocahontas costume, paint their skin blue and go.
