"Mainstream" Halloween costume ideas?

I need help choosing a Halloween costume for a work place contest @@

I'd like something common/popular (can be a character or concept).

Couple of things to keep in mind:
1) I don't want to explain to everyone "what I'm dressed up as" - the people at work are your everyday average folk who don't have exposure to the world of geek culture past what's mainstream.
2) I have black hair, and would like to avoid wearing a wig if possible.
3) I can sew, but I much prefer armor crafting.

Please help guys!

Anyone games of thrones would be good. That's got armor and its relatively mainstream. Be a guy in a fancy bath robe and have an arrow sticking out of your gut, then your Tywin Lannister >:3

A dovahkiin could work since skyrim is pretty popular and you wouldn't need a wig since you can customize your character and you can wear armor

Why not re-use one of your cosplays? Your Bubbles or Mulan should work.

Thanks for the suggestions so far guys!

I considered game of thrones but most of the game of thrones female leads that are instantly recognizable have blond/ light hair. (Save arya I suppose)

As popular as skyrim is I really want to try to avoid the conversation of "I'm something from a video game" which happened last year with demon hunter.

I just want to find a new project to work on over the next few months

You'd need a wig, but how about Black Widow? I'm sure at least some of your coworkers have seen The Avengers.
