Here Are Ten Nollywood Inspired Costumes For Halloween

October 31, 2018

It’s bad enough that some Nigerians insist on getting dressed up for Halloween. But for the 5th year in a row, some of you are going to dress up as olopa. Instead here’s a list of Nigerian/Nollywood inspired Holloween costumes you could pick from.

Liz Benson as the ghost in Diamond Ring.

If you don’t know who she is and you haven’t seen Diamond Ring go and do your homework.

Alex Usifo as Beelzebub in ‘End of the Wicked’.

You remember that part of the movie where he drinks ‘blood’, just a carry a calabash full of zobo as your own prop.

Literally any character from Papa Ajasco.

In fact, you and your squad can go as the whole cast.

The one and only Baba Sala is also a great option.

If you don’t know who is you are wrong. Skim through his legendary life and career here.

Aki and Pawpaw from ‘Aki na ukwa’.

In fact, Aki and Pawpaw in any movie you’ve seen them works great.

When they caught Alamieyeseigha dressed as a woman.

Are we the only who thinks this deserves a Nollywood movie of its own?

Bisi from ‘I Need To Know’. If you happened to go to ISL just dig up your old uniform.

Or you could even go as Jenifa straight out of Ayetoro.

You can pay tribute to musical icon, Baba Fryo with his iconic star-shaped eye patch.

The fact that he gave us ‘Dem Go Dey Pose’ is reason enough for you to.

Wale Adebayo as Sango in ‘Sango’.

Even though nobody could ever come close to owning a character as well as he did, you could try

If you wanted to go as a slay queen, go as Rita Dominic from 2005.

Nobody did it better that year.

Get some black paint, a hat, t-shirt and jacket and you are ready to go as Baba Suwe.

Don’t forget the gold chains.

In the spirit of Halloween what was more terrifying than Ayamatanga from ‘Ultimate Power’.

Who else is still terrified by this movie?

What’s more perfect than the witches from Koto Aiye for you and your girl squad
