Halloween isn’t cancelled this year-so it’s time to get the party started with unique costume themes!
The Planned marketplace is filled with incredible venues that you can fill with spooky live music, haunted decor, and delicious mummy food! Discover all the possibilities for your Halloween party in the marketplace today and once you’ve booked everything, here’s five exciting ideas to inspire this years theme!
Dress up as something that starts with the first letter of your first name
Invite your guests to dress up in a costume of something that starts with the first letter of their first name (I.e. Marc will dress up in a costume of something that starts with an M (mummy, Monopoly man…), Linh will dress up in a costume of something that starts with the letter L (Luigi, leprechaun…) etc.). It’s that simple, and will easily become a wild collection of creative and innovative costumes! Whether scary, funny, or ironic, this theme will encourage everyone to think outside the box!
The best duo
Grab your best buddy and start shopping!
We’ve seen it done in many forms: PB&J, Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly, and Shrek and Fiona. Invite everyone to come as a duo! Dressing up as your favorite duo allows for endless costume ideas, and you might be surprised by what others choose. You can even specify a category that everyone needs to dress up as a duo in, like most iconic 2000s couples or favorite food combinations!
Favorite Netflix character
Do you even Netflix bro? Whether you proudly binge-watched Squid Game all in one day or boldly stuck with Game of Thrones for what seemed like 20 seasons- everyone is bound to have a favorite tv show character. Send your invites and ask that everyone dress up as a tv show character that they were inspired by, scared of, or somehow felt a connection to!
Super heroes unite
Whether you’re a Captain America stan or you grew up watching Spider-Man: everyone has a superhero they look up to! This is great for a group of movie buffs who can talk about all things Marvel and DC. Encourage everyone to spice up their superhero costume a little bit more and add something unique to their superhero suit! You can engage your guests even more by adding some superhero trivia into the mix!
“Best” childhood costume
We all have those childhood halloween pictures that we look back on and wonder ‘why didn’t I win the school costume contest’ or ‘why did my parents let me wear that’- either way, have everyone dress up in a new and improved costume inspired by a previous childhood costume! It’s the perfect way to ensure that the conversations will not run dry at your party as everyone shares the story behind their outfit!
Take these themes, and make them your own! Stay spooky and safe this Halloween!!
