Halloween Costumes that will Make you Nostalgic for your Childhood

Smell that? The wonderful smell of sugar and spice, pumpkin chai, cinnamon vanilla latte (or something like that) is usually the first thing we encounter when we walk through the doors of our favorite coffee shop in October. It’s the smell that reminds us that Halloween is right around the corner. It’s time to carve out our pumpkins, buy those yummy little chocolates we see piled high in the grocery stores, and think up a fabulous costume idea.

First we have to decide on a general theme. Do we want to be scary? Sexy? Funny? Weird? Creative? The choices are endless! Why not try a costume that brings us back to our younger years? An article on Popsugar gives us some great ideas for costumes that will make us nostalgic for our childhood.

First on the list is Mrs. Doubtfire. Put on a white blouse with burnt stains, carry a couple cooking lids, and all the millennials at the party will know exactly who you are!

Perhaps you’re looking for something a bit cuter, softer, and furrier? What better way to indulge in your childhood than dress up as your favorite care bear! Pick your favorite color fur, choose your superpower symbol, and you’re ready to go!

Last but not least, we’ve got a costume that’s great for either gender and all you need is some red and white striped clothing and a pair of round black glasses. Make your childhood memories of looking for Waldo come to life by dressing as Waldo from Where’s Waldo this Halloween!

With only a couple of weeks until Halloween, it’s time to start thinking about your costume. If none of these ideas appealed to you can always fall back on the classics such as, a sexy nurse, a black cat, a construction worker, or a referee! Do you already know what you’re going to be this year? Share in the comments!
