Love travel? Express it with a travel-theme Halloween costume
By Aimee Heckel
Surely there’s some shrink out there who can analyze your Halloween costume of choice to reveal some dimension of your personality and psyche. Like a Superman costume may symbolize a calling to do greater social good, or a revealing kitty cat suit may be an indication of repressed sexual expression.
Take away the Freudian guesses and use your Halloween costume this year to express your love for travel.
1. Pick your favorite vacation destination and dress the part. Be a Hawaiian hula dancer, a surfer, an eskimo or a Vegas show girl. Dress up like a Grecian goddess or Bavarian girl.
2. Go with a travel-inspired movie. “Top Gun” dresses (although we don’t exactly remember that in the movie) are about $55 at Rubie’s Costumes online. Look for Rubie’s Costumes coupons online here, and read more articles about Rubie’s Costumes here.
Also consider travel TV show characters, like Survivorman or the Crocodile Hunter.
3. Dress up like someone in the travel industry. Don’t just limit this to flight attendants and pilots. Why not dress up like a taxi driver? Rick Steves. A security checkpoint worker at an airport. A hotel housekeeper or bellhop. A scuba diver.
4. Pick a travel character or landmark that you love. Check out this long list of travel characters on Pinterest. Other ideas:
- Astronaut Neil Armstrong
- Dora the Explorer
- Where’s Waldo
- The Little Prince
- Carmen Sandiego
- Mount Rushmore
- A traveling gnome
- The Statue of Liberty
- Amelia Earhart
- A tourist
Note: If you happen to be traveling on Halloween and you want to wear your costume in the airport, be careful that it’s in good taste, easy to remove and doesn’t have any fake weapons. If you can avoid it, it’s best not to travel in costume, for security reasons. And for the sake of everyone who doesn’t want to be crammed in next to your giant, obnoxious clown shoes.
