A list of Different and Cool Halloween Costumes
I like dressing up for halloween. I am 36.
But I like to be a little different.
These are the criteria for Unique Halloween Costumes
1). It has got to stand out. I’m like a woman at a dress up party. If someone is wearing the same thing as me, I’m calling a taxi and going home.
2). It has to be relatively cheap. I’m not spending a ton of money on a costume.
3). Star Wars is probably Out for me.
4). Nothing too bloody or gory. I’m not into the horror side of halloween.
5). Makes me Smile
Here is my List of Cool Halloween Costumes
Rated in order
Yes, I know, the horse head is played out. Yet, it still elicits a smile from me just by looking at it. It’s one of those costumes that can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt and people still think you put work into it. I like it.
Inflatable Bath Tab Costume
I’m not going to be wearing this thing with my shirt off. Yet, there’s something that is shocking and fun.
Inflatable Gorilla Costume
Riding a gorilla? I think so.
Well this one is for the more “progressive” crowd. Not sure I’d let my kids wear it.
Carry me on Costume
Honestly, I’m not self confident enough to get one of these types of costumes. But I like when other people wear them.
Please don’t discount the value of easy. Show up to a halloween party with just shrek ears and regular clothing and that puts you into the “I’m too cool to try too hard, but I’m still cool” category. And it’s cheap.
Narwal masks are funny because Narwals are funny. The younger generation has made narwals their generational mascot. So if you want to be cool with the kids, go with the Narwal.
Donald Trump Mask
I’d be careful in what circles you wear this mask. Yet, I can see it being pulled off in the most liberal parts of Boston and the most Hillbilly parts of Arkansas. Good luck!
Plague Doctor mask
I could see myself wearing this. Not that I know the history of Plauge Doctor. But it is a kind of cool cosplay
Rasta Imposta Squirrel Costume
I’m going with the Rasta Imposta costume for #1. Because it is full body. Only the completely sure of themselves can pull off full body suits. And you know what? I’m going to feign confidence this year and see where it gets me.
You hate all of these ideas? What do you recommend?
