You could be a:


Fetch a pair of saggy pants, a head bandana, a gold chain, a white tank top, a pair of cool sneakers- and you’re set!


You will need boots, a bandana for your neck, a flannel shirt, a cowboy hat, and jeans.


You will need footie pajamas, a binky, and a bottle.

Where’s Waldo

You will need glasses, jeans, a striped red and white shirt, and a red beanie.


All you need to do is grab an old white sheet and cut out two holes for the “eyes.” Be sure it is not too long; after all, you do not want to trip while trick-or-treating and spill all of your candy! Take a leftover piece of the sheet and sew a makeshift trick-or-treating bag.


This one is back in style! Tie dye clothing, wear a long wig, and don a pair of retro sunglasses (preferably red-tinted ones)


Wear a pink, brown, or white outfit with a powder puff or large pom-pom on the backside; make a pair of bunny ears from construction paper and a plastic headband-now just hop on out and enjoy!


Make a fake wooden leg by wrapping one of your legs in brown felt. Wear sailor pants or jeans with a striped top. Tie a bandana around your head, wear an eyepatch and mutter “aargh” excessively. Say, “Trick or treat, matey!”


Suspenders, movie glasses with the lens popped out, baggy jeans, shirt tucked into jeans

Gangnam style

Grab a cool suit, black sunglasses, hair gel-and you’re set! Don’t forget the most important part of the costume-your “Gangnam style!”
