Still figuring out your Halloween costume?

With Halloween nearly a month away it’s high time to get an early jump on those costumes. A lot has happened in 2016 and that means more material to buy/make your clever and witty  Halloween costume.

If you’re wondering what to be this year here are a few costume ideas based on what’s been popular this year.


It’s been a big year for Pokémon since the release for Pokémon Go. It’s no wonder that people would want to load up on Pokéballs, put their caps on, and go on an adventure.

You can either go as one of the classic characters from the franchise or mix it up and design your own Pokémon trainer costume.

All you need to create your own trainer costume is to pick any outfit and slap a bunch of poke labels on it. After that you need a never ending drive to catch ‘em all!

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones (GoT) is always a favorite. This year, the character to be is Hodor. You can run around trick or treating saying “HOLD THE DOOR (HODOR)” as you ask for candy or entertain a party.
