*WARNING, This post includes Game of Thrones spoilers, if you are not caught up and don’t want anything ruined for you, turn back now!
If you are like us, then you know the struggle. All year you are hilarious, witty, and full of good ideas, but once October 31st approaches your mind goes blank. Thinking of Halloween costumes is never easy, especially when you know that the quality of your costume directly correlates to how much fun you will have on the big night.
It seems like the days are long gone when Halloween used to be full of scary costumes like witches, zombies, and scary clowns. Nowadays, things have shifted to include more pop culture references and social satire costumes, and Halloween has become much funnier because of it, almost to the point where it’s like a competition for who can come up with the cleverest idea.
We here at your home for New Honda models near West Hills, Florida, Honda of Gainesville, simply cannot wait for Halloween festivities to begin. That is why we’ve created this short list of costume ideas that are guaranteed to make you the life of the party. Use them, adopt them, make them your own, just have a good time and be safe out there!
- Blow-Up T-Rex
If you have an internet connection, then there is no way you haven’t seen the infamous T-Rex costume taking over weight rooms, riding horses, or living like a human. This easy, one piece costume is perfect for impressing your friends and stealing the show at your yearly costume party. It may be difficult to keep on for an entire evening, but if you can take the heat, then the reward will be grand.
- Kanye West
Kanye “Yeezy” West has had a big year. From his widely publicized feud with Taylor Swift to his controversial music videos, it seems like he just cannot avoid the tabloid headlines. Perhaps his most notable business venture has been the development of his high-end refugee-style clothing line that reminds us a bit of Ben Stiller’s Zoolander. Although his fashion items may be extremely out of our price range, imitating them should only take an old T-shirt and a pair of scissors!
- Zombie Jon Snow
If you are the type of person that can appreciate the old school scary style of Halloween costume, but you still want to stay relevant and hip, then we have the perfect costume for you. Jon Snow has made a name for himself as the biggest heartthrob on America’s most watched television show, Game of Thrones.
At the end of Season 5, John was brutally killed by his own men, but in season 6, he was magically brought back to life by the Red Woman. Pay homage to the King in the North with an adapted Jon Snow zombie costume and win the costume party.
- Stuck in Virtual Reality
If you were not already aware, virtual reality has made its way out of science fiction and into the real world. The implications of this are endless as the costume customization options, and many people hold a legitimate fear of becoming permanently stuck in their virtual world. If you don’t want to go out and buy a virtual reality headset, I’m sure the party will get the point if you just use a cardboard cutout. Just make sure to leave your 2016 Honda Accord in the real world.
Speaking of the virtual world and real world co-mingling, have you ever heard of Pokémon Go? Sorry, dumb question. Of course you’ve heard of it, chances are you haven’t put it down since its release in July. Well, your favorite mobile phone game just became the best costume idea at the party. Dress up as one of the Pokémon, your favorite trainer, or if you’re creative, you can create a cardboard cutout mimicking the gameplay interface.
- Rey (Star Wars)
Star Wars is back and more successful than ever. With all new heroes, villains, and worlds to explore, the Star Wars costume options are seemingly endless. Our favorite character from the new movie is Rey, which is convenient since her costume will likely be the easiest to replicate. Just load up on bandage wrap, tie your hair up, and grab a fighting staff and you are ready to conquer the Dark Side.
- Netflix and Chill
Oh, the timeless classic. The term Netflix and Chill has come to define the social media era, ever since the company overthrew Blockbuster as the premier movie provider in America. Netflix and chilling are as American as apple pie, which is why it will make the perfect, low maintenance costume for Halloween 2016.
Many choose to go simply with a Netflix T-shirt while carrying around a bag of ice or cooler for the night, while others make it a couple’s costume with one person wearing a Netflix T-shirt and the other wearing a Chill T-shirt. However you choose to do it, your costume is guaranteed to be a hit.
