This is what you should be for Halloween!

You're never too old to dress up.

Don’t know what you’re going to be for Halloween?

That’s fine, because I know what you’re going to be. Here are some FIRE ideas that will rock your world, along with some cool catchphrases, moral justification and acting tips to help you conquer any Halloween celebration. The one thing to keep in mind with Halloween costumes is you don’t have to be limited to the normal portrayal of these recognizable figures. FEEL FREE, to add your own little twist on to each character...mood, occupation, mental state, physical state, financial state and so on.

Ronda Rousey

Why?

Because she’s a bad-ass that doesn’t tolerate funny business. She’d rather be feared than respected.

How?

UFC top, MMA gloves, hair braids, maybe a fake mole to really seal the deal (for all you overachievers).

Character study:

Ronda is a spicy, confident personality, who pounds people’s face in for a living. The WWE may not be real, but are you going to tell her that? Didn’t think so. If you’re a competitive, flashy shot-caller, this is the perfect costume for you. If you aren’t and wish you were, this is still the costume for you. And if anybody asks you who you are, just punch them face as hard as you can, they’ll know you’re Ronda.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Signature Move 1: grab a pillow and start beating it up.

Signature Move 2: grab a pillow and start choking it out.

Catchphrase 1: (Have somebody announce before you walk in a room) “weighing in at 135 pounds standing 5’7….”

Catchphrase 2: “I’m going to punch your face off, I’m Ronda Rousey!”

Serena Williams

Why?

Serena is a very recognizable figure and considered by some, one of the best athletes of all time.

How?

Tennis skirt, dry-fit top, headband, tennis racket, tennis ball, wristbands, tennis shoes.

Character Study:

Serena Williams has a killer’s instinct, and is a women of strong conviction. She has all the integrity in the world. She’s the tennis GOAT. If you have a motor that never stops running and you’re always on the go, Serena is your go-to costume. Do you have a mean tennis grunt? Do you want an excuse to grunt as loud as you can, at any given point during the night, and not have to be held liable for any potential damages you may cause? Then Serena fits your style.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Catchphrase 1: “UGH!”

Catchphrase 2: “Fault!”

Signature Move 1: Swing your tennis racket around really fast, and don’t stop until somebody gets concerned.

Signature Move 2: Serve a tennis ball at anybody else dressed up as a tennis player that night.

Bill Belichick

Why?

Bill Belichick is the legendary head coach for the New England Patriots, known for his dry personality and smug demeanor.

How?

Patriots hoodie(if you want to be authentic, you’ll cut the sleeves at the elbow), khakis pants, coaches clipboard, dad shoes, coaches headset

Character Study:

Bill Belichick has the subtlest confidence you’ll ever see in another human being. His legendary press conferences are often replicated, but never duplicated. You could even throw in a personality twist, as in you’d be “happy Belichick” or “drunk Belichick”. Endless possibilities.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Catchphrase 1: “Dammit Brady!” (yell this when you’re mad about something)

Catchphrase 2: Give a rousing pregame speech, and coach up all the kids to give you candy before you go out trick or treating.

Signature Move: Make a mic stand, hang a Patriots banner behind you and start giving a press conference in the middle of a party. Have your friends ask you closed ended questions so you can roast them like Belichick roasts reporters. Authenticity is key.

Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, or Mark McGwire

Why?

Because we want to make baseball juicy again. I know I’m not the only one that misses the glory days. Also a great conversation starter. Any one of these cats are sure to get the pot stirring at any Halloween event.

How?

Buff suit, syringe (optional), Bonds, Canseco, or McGwire jersey, baseball bat, eye-black, softball pants, baseball cap,

Character Study:

The one thing all these guys have in common? They hit home runs. Another thing they have in common? They all have the same doctor, nutritionist and lawyer. If you choose to be one of these guys, mood swings are required as part of your portrayal, just to be as accurate as possible.

Not unlike Serena, yelling will be an integral part of your costume.

(Special tip for bonds) If you see anybody that looks remotely like Jeff Kent, immediately get in his face and bring it just like Barry did.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Canseco Catch Phrase: “Everybody was doing it!”

Catchphrase: “Want to see me hit a baseball over those mountains?”

Signature Move: Soft toss yourself some candy, and hit it out of the park!

Wicked Witch of the Court

Why?

A new twist on an old favorite. She did after all, score 20 points in the 378th Annual East Vs. West Witches Basketball Invitational.

How?

Green face paint, witch costume, basketball, headband, basketball shoes, broomstick.

Character Study:

She wants a rematch against her sister, the Witch of the East. She’s been green with envy ever since losing the East Vs West tourney. Stay out of the paint when she’s in the key. I warned you.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Catchphrase: “I’ll cross you my pretty! And your little dog too!”

Signature Move 1: Double reverse tomahawk dunk, on your broom.

Signature Move 2: Post somebody up, then dunk on them by jumping up and slapping your hand against the wall behind them as hard as you can. Make a scene.

Spider-Man tries out for the NY Giants

Why?

Spider-Man is a gifted athlete. The city loves him. His suit is already Giants colors. Why wouldn’t he try out for the NY Giants? Move over Odell.

How?

Make sure you get the buff spider man costume, helmet,shoulder pads, eye black, football.

Character Study:

Spidey’s got hands, we know that because he can grip the sides of buildings. He’d be a solid wide receiver.

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Catchphrase: “With great power comes great responsibility, to score touchdowns”

Signature Move: Be the quarterback and start yelling out a cadence. “blue 42! Set! Hut!”

Ninja Volleyball Player

Why?

Every ninja movie I’ve ever seen shows ninjas flying around, jumping off buildings, and then attacking suddenly. Sounds an awful lot like spiking a volleyball.

How?

Ninja costume, volleyball, knee pads, tennis shoes, volleyball jersey

Character Study: Ninjas are sneaky by nature. Wear this costume if you don’t want people to talk to you, so you can set up the perfect time to strike (spike).

Catchphrases and Signature Moves:

Signature Move 1: Whilst trick or treating, have a buddy toss you up a whole candy bar, jump up and spike that snickers right into the ground. If you hit it hard enough, it should break into pieces. Do it in front of kids so you can use your evil ninja laugh.

Signature Move 2: If you see anything like candy or a phone falling to the ground, make the play.
