Indeed, it’s just about that time to find the perfect costume, and head off to your friend’s Halloween party for all sorts of ghostly and ghoulish shenanigans. With Halloween drawing near, each year, WWE uses this holiday to put their Divas in some of the hottest and funniest costumes they can find. Whether it’s backstage segments, a battle royal, or singles match, you can guarantee seeing the women go at it in everything from a French maid costume to the Super Mario Brothers, or in this case, Sisters outfit.
The WWE Divas have dressed up for years, and this list will focus on the best of the best, hundreds of costumes have been worn, but only the top 15 best will be chosen. This group will comprise of WWE Divas from both present and past, including those still working on NXT. So, you can expect to see current favorites like, Sasha Banks and Paige, as well as former Women’s champions, AJ Lee and Trish Stratus.
Not all of these costumes made to TV, but some were instead taken at backstage parties, and put on their Twitter or Instagram accounts. No matter the source, the finest have been found and ranked, so here are the best looking Diva costumes of all-time!
15. Maryse – French Maid
Being from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, this costume seemed like a no-brainer for the former WWE Diva, Maryse. With lace cuff accessories and her feather duster in hand, she rocks this looks unbelievable well.
Maryse worked for the WWE from 2006 until 2011 where she has moved on to working in movies and other outside opportunities. She’s married to The Miz, so she’s still seen from time to time at events like the Hall of Fame ceremony. As one of WWE’s better heels, it would be nice to see her get back in the ring once again.
14. Maria – Bunny
Fair to say, Marie pulls off a bunny outfit way better than that one that hung around Adam Rose and his Rosebuds. Even Tyler Breeze would be jealous of those feather boot covers, an “uggo” she is most definitely not.
While in the WWE, Maria mainly played the part of a “ditsy girl”, which did not continue once she left the company. Currently known as the “First Lady of ROH”, Maria has developed into one of the best heel managers in the world, managing her real-life husband Mike Bennett. As part of the heel stable, “The Kingdom”, Maria uses her good looks to distract opponents during the match, which sometimes works, and sometimes gets her kicked off the apron.
13. Sasha Banks – Clown Zipper-Face Zombie
Okay, not exactly sure what look she was going for here, but that dress is hot fire! With her typical “Legit Boss” accessories in-tact, Sasha looks fierce, even in the after-life. Seriously though, that zipper on the side of her face is pretty sweet looking. Fun fact: that’s Vickie Guerrero’s daughter to the left.
Most recently, Sasha put on the first 30 Minute Iron-Man match against the current NXT Women’s Champion, Bayley. It was a fantastic match that received a standing ovation from the crowd, for sure, a must-see match for any wrestling fan.
12. Alicia Fox – Fox
Again, sometimes it’s better not to over think things with these costumes, she’s got Fox in her name, acts quite foxy, so why not make her a fox? The hat is a cute touch, and the simple look works nicely as sometimes the WWE goes way over the top with their makeup and outfits.
The former Divas champion is now with The Bella Twins, forming quite the “Mean Girls” club to take on fan favorites Natalya, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch. Amazingly, Alicia has been working for the WWE since 2006, as one of their most underrated works on the roster; this foxy lady has no signs of slowing down.
11. Layla – Clown Mime
Okay, maybe this isn’t the “hottest” looking outfit, but it’s probably one of the funniest costumes used on WWE TV, so it was hard to pass up on it. She did a bunch of the usual mime stuff, but was more colorful than the traditional look, thus the “clown” in the title. Also, yes, that is Paige dressed as Summer Rae in the background.
The two-time champion, Layla worked for the WWE from 2006 until 2015, when she recently retired from wrestling. Originally winning the first Diva Search, Layla was always one of the more spunky members of the roster, with a knack for adding comedy to her matches and promos.
10. Paige – Ghost
Naturally, with a paler complexion, Paige makes for a fantastic ghost; her darker features provide a nice contract producing a striking look. WWE put together a photo shoot with multiple Divas, all acting like ghosts, but Paige’s look way by far the best of the group. It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if she floated into your room at night, right?
Most recently, she dropped a “Paige Bomb” on the rest of the women’s division, Paige turned heel and broke away from the team of Charlotte and Becky Lynch. As one of the more popular women on the roster, she will most likely feud with Becky Lynch, and possibly Charlotte down the road.
9. Bayley and Alexa Bliss – Zombies
It might be just a coincidence, but it seems like many of the women in NXT rock zombie costumes every Halloween. No complaint here though, as these two are looking hot, in that “I’m going to eat your brains” dead-eye kind of way. Bayley is known for her hugs, but be careful; she may take a hunk of skin, if you get too close.
Alexa has gone from a good-girl ferry, to “I’ll do what I want” mean girl, currently managing former NXT Tag champs, Blake and Murphy. Bayley is the present NXT Women’s champion, putting on back-to-back awesome matches against Sasha Banks.
8. Mickie James – Lara Croft
As one of video games most popular women ever, Lara Croft was a perfect choice for 10-time WWE and TNA champion. WWE went all out with the gear, accessories, and even the crazy long hair to make this look just work perfectly. Random observation, but Mickie has nearly the same look in all three photos.
The once obsessed fan of Trish Stratus eventually moved on to wrestle in TNA, having just as much success there, becoming a multi-time champ. Currently she is signed to Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling (GFW) and continues to work on her country music career, already putting out two albums.
7. Nikki Bella – Voodoo Paint
In yet another Halloween photo shoot, WWE used a Voodoo influence style by painting half the faces of a bunch of their Divas. As you can, Nikki’s face is both creepy and striking, with the usual makeup on one side and a haunting look on the other. The white collar is a nice addition to this simplistic, but still eerie looking photo.
Nikki is probably still feeling this serious, since she lost her much beloved Divas title to Charlotte, just a few weeks ago. At WWE’s upcoming PPV, Hell in a Cell, Nikki will get another chance at winning back the title.
6. Eva Marie, Lana, Paige, and Emma – Zombies
The trend of NXT women zombies continues! It’s Tough to argue that you can find a better looking bunch of undead creatures, looking to tear you limb from limb. Have to say Lana’s look might be the best, with the Joker-like lips, eye makeup, and teased out hair, for that added “I’m dead” look.
While Paige has been dropping bombs on the main roster, Lana broke her wrist, and is currently on the sidelines for the next few months, until it heals up. Emma, now a heel, is teamed up with Dana Brooke in NXT and is embroiled in a feud with newly signed, Asuka. Eva Marie is actually wrestling now, and trying to work her way up the NXT ladder towards the championship, now, if she could just stop hurting opponents that would be great.
5. Charlotte – Batman
When have you ever seen Charlotte looking this fierce? With a mysterious mask and a top that leaves little to the imagination, Charlotte rocked this during her NXT days. Also, notice the black tips on her nails, details people, details!
The current Divas Champion should try to hone the sassiness in this photo, and put it to work more often on TV. While she’s still improving, her in-ring work, and especially, her promos are still pretty vanilla and awkward. At 29, she still has some time to improve, and possibly achieve her dream of being in the main event of a WWE Pay-Per-View!
4. Eva Marie – Jessica Rabbit
What does it take to make a proper looking Jessica Rabbit? A curvy figure, a red sparkling dress, and bright red hair tend to do the trick just nicely. Lucky for Eva, she’s got all of the requirements, and that’s why she’s this high up on the list. With red gloves, and black heels to break up the “all red everything”, this costume is a home-run.
Right now, Eva is working in NXT to improve her wrestling abilities, and while she still needs a lot of work, she’s easily one of the biggest heels on the roster. Whenever she is brought up fans can’t help but talk about her, good or bad, and that goes a long way towards being a successful wrestler.
3. Trish Stratus – Wonder Woman
Trish would look great in a paper bag, but as Wonder Woman? That’s just not even right. First off, the black hair looks awesome on her, and the outfit itself is just perfect, showing off a bit more than usual. Accessories are also on-point with her bracelets, headband and the Lasso of Truth tucked into her tights.
Retiring from wrestling back in 2006, Trish still makes a few random appearances for the company, most recently inducting Lita into the WWE Hall of Fame. She started her own Yoga company in 2008, and is still running it successfully today.
2. AJ Lee – Kitana
As a well-known gamer, AJ decided to go all Mortal Kombat on the WWE Universe and do a photo shoot as the fan slicing and dicing, Kitana. You just know AJ loved this shoot with this awesome looking outfit, a cute cross-stitch top, and mask, for that mysterious look. Seriously though, if she turns into a bunny, everybody run!
AJ recently retired from the WWE earlier this year, much to the disappointment of many fans, but at only 28, there’s still plenty of time for her to eventually make a return. Imagine if she and Punk randomly strolled back down to the ring? Now, that would be scary, for everyone else on the roster.
1. Sasha Banks – The Joker
What’s needed to break the internet; take a popular person (Sasha), have them dress up like another popular character (The Joker), and make it sexy as hell! This photo became all the rage for a few days when Sasha unleashed it on her different social media accounts. Using the more simplified make-up look, seems more like Jack Nicholson than Heath Ledger, yeah? The flower and especially the green bows are a nice touch to complete the look, making this an easy choice for number one.
Doing just about everything she could in NXT, it’s time for Sasha to start getting more attention on main roster. Some rumors have swirled the net that she will be next to take on Charlotte for the Divas title, hopefully that comes to fruition, as she’s one of the most talented workers on the roster. Why so serious? She won’t be in the background for too much longer…
