It’s that time of year again—the leaves are falling, the weather’s chilly and the streets are filled with princesses, ghosts, ghouls and goblins. That’s right, it’s Halloween!

Deciding on a Halloween costume is often a challenge for most people, primarily because there are just too many to choose from. Some people go with the pop culture icon of the moment, while others choose to stay classic and dress up as witches, vampires and pumpkins.

From do-it-yourselfers to clever, ‘punny’ costumes, here’s a quick guide to some unique and educational costumes that are sure to be a hit at your next Halloween party:

Crayons: A Practical Group Costume

Nothing screams school louder than a group of students dressed up as crayons! These costumes can all be purchased (probably for a hefty price) or they can be made with nothing more than a few household staples.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Colourful clothes
  • Glue
  • Spray-paint

To dress up as a crayon, all you’ll need to do is select your favourite colour and put on a pair of pants and a t-shirt (or a dress) in that colour. Spray-paint a funnel the same hue and place it on your head and you’re all set. For added points you can print out a Crayola logo and glue it (or pin it) to your outfit!

Bill Nye the Science Guy: A Childhood Favourite

Every member of Gen Y definitely remembers the quirky educational PBS program featuring none other than Bill Nye. In fact, most were educated on the basics of science at a pretty early age because of this “edutainer” show. So what better way to show your appreciation than with a fun (and simple) Halloween costume in his honour?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Blue lab coat
  • Dressy pants
  • White shirt
  • Bow tie

Put all of these items together and part your hair to one side and you’ve got your very own education-themed Bill Nye the Science Guy costume! Bonus points if you can get your hands on a few beakers.

What (or who) will you be dressing up as for Halloween this year?
