When trying to come up with an original costume idea for Halloween, most TV fanatics will immediately think of their favorite characters on television and try to choose between them which one is the most fun to imitate.
Here are nine cool costume ideas you might want to consider for Halloween:
1. Crazy Eyes – Orange Is The New Black
All you have to do is wear orange, do your hair like hers and stare at people the whole time. Speaking and acting like her would also be a lot of fun, but make sure that the people you’re partying with are familiar with her character so they wouldn’t be freaked out by you.
2. Twisty The Clown – American Horror Story: Freak show
This costume is not that easy to do but will surely scare the hell out of everyone. Try to stay away from kids though because you would probably give them nightmares.
3. Pepper – American Horror Story: Asylum/Freak show
Also difficult to do, but if you’re able to imitate her character well then that would be enough to make people notice you, because let’s face it, everybody loves Pepper!
4. Helena – Orphan Black
If you’re able to find her wig and do her accent, Helena is an awesome choice for a Halloween costume. In fact, she’s one of the cutest psychopaths on television and everyone would want to be her “sestra”.
5. Joffrey – Game Of Thrones
Joffrey’s character will get you a lot of attention, but be careful not to push it a lot; you don’t want people hating you as much as they hate him on the show.
6. Cercei – Game Of Thrones
She’s one of the strongest women on TV so you have big shoes to fill. She’s smart, confident, calm and very intimidating; I bet people will be scared of you if you’re able to imitate her character right.
7. Eric and Pam – True Blood
Eric and Pam are sexy badass vampires. If you can be as sarcastic and humorous as Pam and as sexy and mysterious as Eric then you can definitely pull it off. (Of course you can choose to do one of them by yourself, but it would be more fun if you have a partner from the opposite sex to do the other one)
8. Ichabod Crane – Sleepy Hollow
Not only dressing like him would be cool, but also acting like him: be shocked or freaked out every time you encounter a modern technology device or a modern tradition that didn’t exist in your time.
9. A Guilty Remnant – The Leftovers
This costume can be considered strange to most people. It only includes wearing white, chain-smoking and staying silent the whole time. It might be difficult for you if you’re a non-smoker and ideal if you’re an introverted smoker. That’s why, you can consider it as a challenge to see how devoted you are to your character.
