The spooky season is upon us once again! Halloween is one of those holidays that takes on new meaning at different stages of life. As a child, it’s, of course, all about trick-or-treating around the neighborhood for as much candy as possible. For single adults, it’s often a chance to throw on a fun costume and head out to Halloween parties. And, of course, for parents and grandparents, Halloween takes on a new level of fun watching little ones dress up and celebrate the holiday.
Regardless of where you’re at in life, donning a costume is the only way to do Halloween right. If you’re looking for something a little more creative than a sheet with a couple of holes cut in it, try these costumes on for size.
Ballerina – Head to your local arts and crafts store and pick up a roll of tulle. Combine it with an old belt, and you’ve got a DIY tutu for the cost of less than $5. Pair it with a pink, black, or white top and some tights, and you’re good to go.
Sports Star – Grab your favorite jersey, and presto – you’re instantly a sports star. Looking for something that’s a little more current? Pick up a Kansas City Chiefs jersey and ask a female friend to throw on a blonde wig and red lipstick, and you can double up as Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.
Mummy – The mummy costume has been a Halloween classic for as long as people have been dressing up for Halloween. While wrapping yourself in a roll of toilet paper may be incredibly easy, your bandages are likely to fall apart pretty quickly. Head to the drug store and grab a roll or two of gauze instead.
Ninja or Pirate – Here’s the thing about ninjas and pirates: their outfits aren’t all that different. Grab a red or black scarf and tie it around your head like a bandana, and you’re a pirate. Tie it around your head as a headband, and viola – ninja! Pair the outfit with a little bit of black makeup, and you’re ready to shout “Argh!” or “Hi-yah!” whichever you prefer.
TV or Movie Character – The great thing about going as your favorite pop culture character is depending on who you choose, you may be able to get by by wearing regular clothes and simply adding a few accessories.
Characters like Wednesday Adams, Michael Scott, Bob Ross, or Walter White can probably be assembled straight from your closet. You could even take things up a notch and go as a pop culture moment from 2023. Throw on a long blonde wig, pink skirt, and trench coat to become… Barbenheimer.
Once you have the perfect costume picked out, the only question is where to show it off. Our pick is the Dripping Springs Pumpkin Festival. It runs every weekend in October with all sorts of festivities, and costumes are always welcome.
