Every year, they’re unmistakable: the classics. These are the costumes that you see every year that just don’t seem to go out of style. You’ve got your witches, cats, ghosts, and pirates, to name a few. If you’re really set on being one of these, consider these suggestions to help spice them up a bit.
We’re all familiar with the green-faced witch dressed in black with a pointy hat, but there are other ways the witch can be reinvented. You can choose a witch. Some famous ones are Glinda the Good Witch of the North or the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, Samantha from Bewitched, or even Sabrina the teenaged witch. Or, if you don’t like your boss or professor, you can dress up like them and claim you’re a witch, just don’t blame me if you get in trouble.

Avoid looking like you threw together a costume in five minutes by passing on the cat ear headbands and fuzzy clip on tails. Some famous felines you can mimick are: Tony the Tiger, Garfield, or Felix the Cat. If you can gather two friends, you can be Josie and the Pussycats.

You don’t need me to tell you how played out the two eye holes cut out of a white sheet is. Avoid this pitfall by being the ghost of someone. For example, grab an Elvis costume and a can of white spray paint and some white face paint. Spray the costume (and wig) white and paint your face white and go out as the ghost of Elvis.

Pass on the Jack Sparrow costume and delve a little bit into history. Try Blue Beard, Red Beard, or Captain Morgan (you can carry around a bottle of the rum as your prop for this one, if you’re of age, anyway)
