The holiday season is upon us: we’ll soon be feasting upon pumpkins, followed by turkeys (plump and with tiny pilgrim hats), and, well, more turkeys (plumper and with tiny Santa hats). Since Halloween is closing in on us like the Grim Reaper, you’re probably thinking about what costume to wear if you haven’t ordered or sewn your own already.
Our Bored Panda witches and warlocks have been busy casting summoning spells and concocting the perfect list of Halloween costumes. We hope you’ll enjoy them and that they’ll inspire you to show everyone who’s boss while you’re out trick-or-treating and dancing all night long at your Halloween bash.
You think you love Halloween? Odds are, we love it more. Way more. In fact, I’m pretty sure that pumpkin juice flows through our veins. Check out Bored Panda’s posts about Halloween here, here, here, here, and here. It’s scary how many of these we’ve summoned from the Pumpkin Realm. [Roll of thunder followed by an evil cackle]

Halloween is a great time to let out your inner creative imp. Whether you want to show off to your friends, leave a great impression on that girl or boy that you like, or scare off spooky spirits like Sam and Dean from Supernatural, it’s imperative that you look good.
And for that, you need a costume. Something different from the crowd. Something that stands out. Something that hasn’t been done before.

However, there’s nothing new under the sun, so instead of going for total originality that might backfire, instead, go for something a bit unusual but make your costume well.
After all, it’s the quality of the costume and your ability to roleplay that pirate/knight/Jedi/superhero that counts most, not just impressing others with your innovative ideas. We’d rather dress to the nines as Castiel (some of us already wear trench coats almost daily) than pretend to be some niche character from some show nobody’s ever seen.

There are many traditions associated with Halloween and one of them has to do with keeping away fairies if you’re Irish or have ancestors back in the Land of a Thousand Welcomes. According to local folklore, if you don’t want your things stolen by those darn pesky fairies on October 31, you should dress up, carve faces into pumpkins, light blazing bonfires, and keep yourself surrounded by black cats. Otherwise, the fairies might get you. In fact, we heartily recommend surrounding yourself with cats throughout the year. Just in case.
