Halloween celebrations will be a little different this year as traditional trick-or-treating is currently discouraged in adherence of safety precautions to help slow the spread of COVID-19. This translates to doing away with large festive gatherings in favor of more sober and humble celebrations at home — at least for the time being.
This does not mean that you can’t go all out in celebrating the spooky holiday, though. One way of celebrating Halloween without relying on relatively large crowds is by dressing up in your favorite costumes. From pop-culture-themed costumes to more wacky fare, these costume ideas can prove that you can enjoy the spirit of Halloween safely in 2020, whether with those at home or from a distance with others far away celebrating the feast with you online:
1. Rocky “Italian Stallion” Boxer Shorts And Robe
If you are a fan of Sylvester Stallone’s iconic star-making boxer, then you might want to wear these officially licensed replicas of Rocky Balboa’s black-and-gold boxer shorts and robes which were first featured in Rocky II.
Available in small, medium, large and XL sizes, the short features the cinematic Philly boxer’s name printed on the waistband with his Italian Stallion logo on the left front leg.
The similarly colored robe, on the other hand, is one-size-fits-all, so it fits well regardless of body size, with Rocky’s Italian Stallion logo printed on the back and his name on the breast.
2. Space Jam Tune Squad Jersey And Shorts
While you have to wait until 2021 to watch “Space Jam: A New Legacy” featuring NBA superstar LeBron James in theaters, you can show your love for the 1997 Looney Tunes mixed live-action-animated classic preceding it (or hit the court as if you are Michael Jordan who was on the film) by wearing this officially-licensed Space Jam Tune Squad basketball jersey and shorts.
Available in six sizes, the jersey features the name of either Taz, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Tweety or Lola Bunny printed on the back with the Tune Squad logo printed at the front.
3. Wonder Woman Costume
Wonder Woman 1984 is slated for release this Christmas, so if you are an avid fan of DC’s Amazon superheroine, then you will be pleased with this officially-licensed corset dress and skirt costume set made to look like the one Diana (Gal Gadot) wore in the 2016 film Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
4. Karate Kid Daniel LaRusso Costume
Made to look like the outfit famously worn by Ralph Macchio’s main character in The Karate Kid film series, this officially licensed costume set can help you beat the Cobra Kai — or at least demonstrate your passion for the movie and the Cobra Kai web series, if not martial arts in general. The set includes a top, pants, headband and a black belt.
5. Lift Me Adult Costume
Lift Me adult costumes give others an illusion of someone or something giving you a free ride. Funny and comfortable, these unique unisex costumes are available in various sizes and styles, including (but not limited to) one that features a monkey and another with a leprechaun, and each even come with a beer can holder.
6. Legends Of The Hidden Temple Team T-Shirts
Whether you want to be a Red Jaguar, Blue Barracuda, Green Monkey, Orange Iguana, Purple Parrot or Silver Snake, this Legends of the Hidden Temple-themed t-shirt is a good choice to wear on Halloween night when imagining yourself crossing the moat, mastering the Steps of Knowledge and getting through the Temple Games featured in the Nickleodeon game show.
