What better two archaeologists to pair up than the incredibly good looking pair of Indiana Jones and Laura Croft (from Tomb Raider). These two archaeologists both happen to be incredibly good looking, know how to solve incredible, complex age-old puzzles, and be highly skilled in hand to hand combat and firearms training. Not like most archaeologists I know but that just makes your group Halloween costume that much more ridiculously awesome. The costumes for both are fairly simple, with pretty much all the items available at your local thrift shop. The Indiana Jones whip would be the hardest thing to find in my opinion, but you can buy them online here. And if you want to wimp out and just buy yourself a Laura Croft costume, the internet has those too.
Got a bunch of short hairy friends? Get four of them together, get 3 tall relatively good looking people, and one really old man – BOOM, you’ve got your fellowship, and a great group Halloween costume idea. The Hobbits would be fairly easy to create, you just need to buy cloaks and some clothes that are way too big for you. Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, and Gandalf would all be a little harder to create on your own, but there are plenty of costume stores selling mediocre versions of all the clothing items online. And if you are a particularly nerdy group of friends (which I assume you are since you are going as the Fellowship of the Ring for Halloween), you may even have some replica props sitting around – the one ring, Gandalf’s staff, or maybe even Anduril (the blade that was broken). Whoever was Gandalf would have it best though, and could just run around all night yelling “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!”
Everybody loves Sailor Moon. And the other guardians of course too. And everybody loves Tuxedo mask – yes, that includes the boys too. What little boy wouldn’t want to be the mysterious love interest of the sexy, smart, and butt-kicking Sailor Moon. So ladies, get yourself a stud muffin and throw a tux on him, get yourselves some white leotards and short coloured skirts, and just hot glue on some fabric. Voila, you are now the Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Mask for Halloween. Or if you are lazy, you can always just buy a Sailor Moon outfit for a pretty reasonable price.
With the success of the Avenger’s movies and Marvel Universe in general, there will be a plethora of Avenger’s Halloween costumes available this Halloween. Even over the last couple of years, there have been a lot more of caped crusaders of all types out on the streets at night with the popularity of all the superhero movies genre as of late. And again, if you got some nerdy friends, chances are they already have some replica items like Captain America’s shield, or Thor’s Hammer (Mjölnir), so all you really need is to spend $50 on a costume and you are good to go. Avengers ASSEMBLE!
Seeing as this dynamic duo was set to arrive in the future last year (October 21, 2015), you could still use them as a clever group Halloween costume – just say you punched in the wrong date in the time machine. Last year would have been perfect as they actually arrived in the future last year, but if you were ever thinking about going as Marty and Doc, for Pete sake now is the time. Marty is pretty easy, you just need a red down vest and a plaid shirt and blue jeans. Oh and don’t forget to head down to your local skateboard shop and buy yourself a pink hoverboard seeing as we totally invented them, just as Spielberg predicted…NOT. Damn you Spielberg for getting my hopes up. Do you know how excited I was for 2015 when I was a kid?! I digress. Doc brown you just need a wig, a white lab suit, and a remote control for an old RC car, or just get yourself the full costume here. But great Scott, you did it, you made it back to the future.
