If your state borders Canada, you can bet that Halloween is a much different experience than it is for our friends in southern states. In Minnesota, for instance, mother nature seems to throw us a blizzard nearly every Halloween. This gives people the opportunity to mix practicality with creativity on their costume ideas. Here’s some cold weather costume ideas:
Do you know why those people look so happy in that picture? It’s because they’re warm. Just bundle up big time with some fur and say you’re an Eskimo. At 2 a.m. when the snows coming down you’ll be thankful you decided not to be an Olympic swimmer or something.
Normally athlete costumes are pretty lame, but there’s a pretty big difference between putting a Tracy McGrady jersey on and wearing a bunch of ski gear. You’ve got the goggles, the ski jacket and maybe even the poles to complete the look. Plus if the snow comes down extra heavy you might end up just cross-country skiing home.
Every 90s kid’s favorite hockey movie, you can be a member of the team too with this sweet costume. I know this group of friends who dressed up as the whole team just about (not sure who got stuck being Averman). Hockey gear is pretty warm, and being the Mighty Ducks really goes above just being a regular hockey player on Halloween
Luke Skywalker on Hoth
If Luke Skywalker could survive on Hoth in this, I think he’d be able to handle Minnesota.
Santa Claus knows a thing or two about surviving in the cold. Take a cue from him and be good ol’ Kris Kringle for Halloween. This also has an added bonus of mixing holidays, which is never a bad thing (getting presents on the Fourth of July sounds awesome doesn’t it?). Girls will also want to sit on your lap all night. A lot of upside here.
