Earlier today we rounded up some geeky Halloween costumes which are relatively inexpensive to make, and in previous years we rounded up some pop culture costumes here and here. But there are more costume ideas where those came from, and this time we’re turning our attention to pop culture characters and movies.

Here are another 25 costumes of varying degrees of difficulty, all unified in being creatively executed and instantly recognizable to many. Ready? OH YEAH.
