Five costumes you’re bound to see at the Athens Halloween Block Party

Every Halloween, there’s always those select few costumes that you’ll see more than once walking up and down Court Street at the Athens Halloween Block Party. Whether it be the exact same costume or a close replica, multiple people will be wearing at least one of these five most popular Halloween costumes of 2018:


You should expect to see many people dressed as a Black Knight or a Skull Trooper from the pop culture phenomenon Fortnite this Halloween. The video game was released last year and has gained a huge following. It’ll definitely be a costume one will not be able to escape. Don’t be surprised if you see people busting out some of the video game’s most popular dance moves on Court Street. 

The Incredibles

After the Incredibles 2 movie hit theaters this past summer, it’s no surprise that Pixar fans have been waiting for the opportunity to dress up like the superhero family. It’s a fun group costume to get more people involved. The Incredibles have been around for years, but it’s still a popular go-to costume for Halloween. As long as nobody gets separated from their party and pulled into another Incredibles-themed costume group by accident, then it should be a super night.

Marvel and DC Superheroes

On the topic of superheros, costumes featuring Marvel or DC characters will also be a popular choice for many this year. With the release of DC’s Justice League late last year, and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War this past spring, the abundance of Spiderman, Black Panther, Superman and Aquaman costumes will be plenty. Wonder Woman costumes will be just as, if not more popular this Halloween, especially with Wonder Woman 1984 coming out in 2020

Michael Myers

Watch out for the people who are going to be dressed on the more spooky side of Halloween. The hype for the new Halloween movie that just came out this past weekend will definitely inspire several people to sport the famous Michael Myers look. Considering the chilly weather coming up for the Athens Halloween Block Party, those dressed up as Michael Myers will at least be warm in their full-body attire.


Riverdale has been a trending TV show since its first season aired in 2016, giving fans many options for their Halloween costumes. The Riverdale cast is another group costume that friends can put together and look just as amazing as the cast. From Betty to Jughead and everyone in between, you’ll be sure to see some Riverdale Bulldogs this Halloween.
