You should not be going to Halloween parties. There is a pandemic going on for goodness’ sake. But that doesn’t mean the holiday is a total loss. Whether you’ve got some Zoom meetings with family, work costume contests to participate in, or some socially distanced trick-or-treating scheduled, there is still time to get a costume ready. Here’s the Colloquial staff’s top 5 last minute Halloween costumes.
Clark Kent/Kara Danvers
- A pair of glasses
- A button down shirt
- Superman t-shirt ready to be revealed
- You can include a reporter’s notebook and a microphone if you’ve got em.
Remix it with different hero shirts to be Peter Parker, Bruce Wayne, etc. A truly endless supply of Halloween costumes.
– Christian Coleman
- Overcoat (or suit jacket)
- A collection of odd household items
- String or Safety pins
- As many watches as you own
The next process is simple. String or pin a collection of bizarre items to the inside of your overcoat, wear as many watches on each arm as possible, proceed to ask everyone at the party if they wanna buy a watch (or whatever item your peddling). If you lose the Halloween costumes contest, at least you may make a buck or two.

Character from LOST
No need for a list here. Take a few old pieces of clothing from that giveaway pile you’ve been meaning to donate, and rip the sleeves off and just rub some dirt on it.
– Colter Longshore
The perfect norm-core costume. It’s been so played out that I’d wager it would be a hit on zoom Halloween parties. Classic is classic for a reason. White sheet, cut some eye-holes, apply some oooOOOOoooo’s.
– Peter Corn
- Black Pants
- Black long sleeve shirt/hoodie
- White Duct Tape
The tape work doesn’t have to be anatomically correct, just make it obvious what you’re going for. Add some face paint to further the affect.
