Check out the most interesting BTS Halloween costumes throughout the years 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and the previous year including their War On Hormone and 21st Century Girl costumes.
I find Halloween one of the most fun festivals ever. Even if you’re not much into dressing up or partying during this time, it’s nice to watch other people do it.
And I’m especially interested in what celebrities wear on Halloween. In the west there are several celebrities like Heidi Klum and Neil Patrick Harris who are known for their extravagant Halloween costumes.
But South Korea has BTS and frankly no other Kpop group does Halloween costumes as well as BTS does.
They come up with the wackiest stuff! From Snow White to Cowboys, the Bangtan Boys have thought of everything!
So I thought why not catalog some of BTS’ top Halloween costumes throughout the years! Scroll down further so see what BTS wore for Halloween last year and the years before that.
BTS Halloween Costumes
Here are some of BTS’ most interesting Halloween costumes throughout the years!
BTS Halloween costumes 2014
This year is special for BTS as it was their first Halloween as a band together. They had already tasted success in 2014 January with their EP Skool Luv Affair which topped charts.
Their studio album Dark & Wild also peaked at number 2 during August of 2014, so BTS was full of optimism as they appeared in a group Halloween costume together.
This particular year they didn’t do a group theme. And the costumes were rather common but well designed nevertheless.
In Halloween 2014, RM dressed up as Count Dracula while Jim appeared as the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean character Jack Sparrow.
Jungkook, the Maknae of BTS, had a low effort grim reaper costume which was cute nonetheless.
While Jimin put in some effort for his Charlie Chaplin costume and Suga for his Chucky Doll one.
I also liked J-Hope’s prisoner Papillon costume which was very different from the rest.
And as the Dark Knight trilogy had just wrapped up in 2014 and Heath Ledger’s amazing performance as the Joker was still fresh in everyone’s mind, V decided to pay homage to him with his Joker costume.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2015
In 2015 too, BTS didn’t appear in a group costume. They did different individual costumes based on stuff they like.
This year, anime and manga were a huge influence on BTS’ Halloween costumes.
While RM appeared as the Lazy Egg Gudetama, Suga was Naruto. Jungkook, another huge manga fan, was the famous character Detective Conan.
Jimin (also known as the sunshine of the group) appeared in a very apt Mickey Mouse costume while V stole RM’s 2014 look and appeared as a vampire.
My favorite costume however was J-Hope who was Darth Vader.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2016: 21st Century Girls
This year Halloween was extra special for BTS as they used this festival to do a promotion for their new song 21st Century Girls.
There is a fantastic video of the boys learning the steps to the 21st Century Girls choreography while in full costume. It’s hilarious.
This year BTS’s costumes were extra cute. I especially adored J-Hope as a skeleton and Jungkook as a bunny. But the real show stealer for me was Jimin dressed like a cabbage.
It was also cute to see V as the popular anime character Cardcaptor Sakura and Jin as a cowboy (complete with a stuffed horse!).
Yoongi or Suga as he’s popularly known took a different route and appeared as a traditional Joseon-era scholar.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2017: Go Go
By 2017, I think performing to their songs in Halloween costumes was becoming a bit of tradition with BTS.
This particular year stands out to me as this was the first time that the Kpop group dressed up in a group costume. And what a costume choice it was!
V (Kim Taehyung) was Snow White while the rest of the bandmates were the seven dwarves! Now if that doesn’t make you giggle, nothing will!
BTS Halloween Costumes 2018
Unfortunately, BTS didn’t do a Halloween costume for the year 2018. Their official statement was that they were busy with dance practices and concerts to do a costume.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2019
2019 was also the same as 2018, Halloween wise. Very dry for fans who were expecting funny costumes from BTS!
BTS couldn’t do a proper costume this year but they did put out a video apologizing to fans for the same and wishing them for Halloween.
The group made up for not wearing costumes by adding funky sunglasses while clicking Halloween pictures. Well, it wasn’t much. But for BTS’ Army it was still a step up from the complete radio silence of 2018.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2020
Now from anyone else, this would have been a very low-effort group costume, but it’s BTS so they managed to make it funny and cute.
BTS attempted to do the “Ghost Challenge” in 2020. So for Halloween the group got out long white blankets with cut out holes for eyes to play ghosts.
The group completed this “spooky” look by wearing funky and comical sunglasses to finish their look.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2021
So like 2018 and 2019, 2021 saw little action in terms of BTS Halloween costumes. They had an entire “Festa” planned for their fans last year.
This festa included concerts, fan meet and greets and more. But there wasn’t a Halloween tradition last year round.
BTS Halloween Costumes 2022
While there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, fans are hoping BTS brings back their group Halloween costume tradition for 2022.
The BTS Army is already speculating what each member might go as this year. Never mind that Halloween is still a good while away.
BTS Inspired Halloween Costumes
While BTS’s funky Halloween costumes always cause a stir among fans, there are certain others who would rather make BTS members a costume!
You can always find someone dressed up as either Jungkook, Jimin or V during Halloween time.
Some fans go all the way with changing their hair colors, getting the right costumes, and accessorizing just like their idols.
Others take it slow and simple and just copy their idols casual style as a last minute Halloween idea.
