Halloween’s almost here and there’s always that handful of people who like to stand out at the party so if you’re one of them, here’s the hottest tv character Halloween costume ideas sure to get you talked about in a good way. Everything from Dexter, Walking Dead, Sons Of Anarchy to Breaking Bad.
I still love Halloween, and it’s one of my favorite times of the year, but it definitely gets tougher to come up with something that’s not going to be done by everyone else. Yes, I’m that type of person that hates walking into a room where even one other woman is wearing the same or similar outfit to me, so in the spirit of things, we’ve come up with some great alternatives to the usual Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Honey Boo Boo, or Slutty Professional that will be seen in droves this year.
Sterling Archer – Archer
Costume requirements: Dark gray suit, tie clip, silenced handgun, massive ego, mommy issues
Now some may confuse you and think you’re portraying Daniel Craig’s Skyfall James Bond, but just throw out some oddball one-liners, play the ass and bring up some memorable Burt Reynolds catch phrases and suddenly everyone will be getting the picture…at least the bright hipsters will.
Nucky Thompson – Boardwalk Empire
Costume requirements: Prohibition era wool suit, homburg hat, red carnation, stack of cash, corrupt disposition
What a great costume right before the elections since any fan of Boardwalk Empire knows about Nucky’s election fraud ways. Plus you can finally raid your grandparents closet with good reason.
Annie – Community
Costume requirements: Patterned dress, solid-colored sweater, schoolgirl innocence, huge rack
We had to have something for the ladies where you can dress conservatively but still feel rather sexy. Every Republican (the few straight ones that seem to exist at least) will be all over that school girl hits puberty look faster than Mitt Romney can change another of his opinions.
Dexter Morgan – Dexter
Costume requirements: Cargo pants, skin-tight brown shirt, black gloves, bladed weapon, dark passenger
Yes, killers of all kinds are Halloween costume staples, but who wears the serial killer with the best of intentions outfit? Since Dexter has been a killer season, you’re bound to find that special someone who shares your love for him. Always good to have at least one thing in common when you meet the special person!
Sons Of Anarchy Any Cast Member
Costume requirements: Leather kutte, body ink, facial hair, criminal record, murderous intent
This is you chance to get all badass for a reason. Most times when someone tries a biker costume, they just look like a lost Village People tribe member. This is where you can’t go wrong for any guy, gay or straight or even any drag kings! Pick your favorite “Son.” Jax, Clay, Opie, Tig, Bobby, Chibs, and Juice are all suitable choices. Or you could shave your head and go as Happy, although you’ll be required to kill and/or torture someone before the night is over. If you’re intent on that slutty look, why not take on Katey Sagal’s character!
Walter or Jessie – Breaking Bad
Costume requirements: Yellow or orange hazmat suits, gas masks, bag of blue meth, love-hate relationship that can be mistaken for homoeroticism
Yes, the meth addict costume is so early 2000′s but Breaking Bad has brought that trend back with a vengeance. It might be the last season of the show coming up, but talk about your friend Tina and you’ll be able to root about all those ex- or current meth heads!
Rick Grimes – The Walking Dead
Costume requirements: Deputy sheriff’s uniform, trooper hat, Colt Python .357 Magnum, leadership skills, hero complex
Everyone will love this one, plus it allows you be alone all night if you want with a suffering hero complex that everyone will understand. If someone named Lori shows up, just look at her oddly hurt and walk away with that swagger all the zombies love.
Sharon Needles – RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 Winner
Costume Requirement – Anything from Party City
