Halloween costumes are a surprisingly strong display of anyone’s ingenuity and dedication. Seriously, anybody can put on a certain red and black licensed hoodie and proclaim themselves “Deadpool.” Hey, we won’t even claim we’re opposed to that tack.
However, you can always tell who stepped outside the box and locked themselves out when looking at the most creative costumes to be paraded door-to-door and at parties each year. Some people dress their child up as Little Red Riding Hood. Others dress their child up as Little Red Riding Hood and doll up their full-grown husky as an imposter Grandma.
Then there’s that one kid who clearly didn’t love “Guardians Of The Galaxy” quite as much as his parents and ended up with the most authentic Rocket Raccoon costume this side of an actual genetically re-engineered small mammal.
Don’t even get us started on the weatherman who had the brilliant notion to wear a green bodysuit decorated with a skeleton while he delivered his forecast. We’re as impressed by him as we are a little bit squicked by the guy that made a mask of his own face to hold over some disturbing gore makeup.
If you have a costume idea as out-there as father and son dressing as each other or perhaps costuming father and son as Peter Pan and his shadow, then we’d like to ask just two small favors.
First, share! We aren’t entirely convinced we’ll see something as adorable as the two twin toddlers’ “Up”-themed outfits below or that mesmerizing, haunting Weeping Angel, but we would love to see what you have in the works. Who knows? We might even share your vision with the world on our Facebook page.
Second, if you’re stuck for just the right makeup, outfit, prop, mask, or makeup-effects appliance, check out the ala carte options at Spirit Halloween. Naturally, there are some deep seasonal discounts available right now on some costumes and accessories you won’t find anyplace else – possibly even that perfect finishing touch that just might get your costume noticed next year the same way we stand up and applaud these.
