5 Fun Halloween Costume Ideas

October 14th, 2016

Halloween is a time for being creative, but when you leave your costume until the last minute it can feel like you’ll have to resort to a sheet over your head with some eyes punched in. If you stay in the apartments in Foster City, you’re going to have a lot of options when it comes to how to celebrate so try these fun costume ideas this year for a little more panache in your autumn step.

1. Themes

Go for a theme this year because it’s a good way to make a costume seem more ‘complete.’ As long as you can convince a friend or spouse to dress up with you, you can be the King and Queen of the party or the Peanut Butter and Jelly couple to the waiting trick-or-treaters.

2. Be a Referee

There’s nothing more fun than blowing the whistle to signal a party foul. When you see someone coming into the party with a lackluster costume, you can issue a warning on the spot. You can also blow the whistle if someone makes a bad joke or accidentally spills or breaks something!

3. Go Modern

Dress up as an iPhone or Google Maps this year. You can also be the Snapchat ghost, for a twist on a classic costume. Spoofing the big events of the year is a fun way to stay relevant and get more attention.

4. Be a Pun

This opens you up to a lot of possibilities. Have you ever thought about representing the word ‘misbehavior’? Put on a dress and a sash and go as Miss. Behavior, and then you can do whatever you want. Or dress up as Ms. Chief, and start causing a little trouble.

5. Honor Your Own Passions

Whether it’s a superhero, JK Rowling, baseball or your mother, pay some homage to the activities or people you love. It will not only have meaning for you, but could be a fun conversation starter if you happen to be introduced to a lot of people at a party.
