Halloween 2020 may not be like Halloween in the past. Because of the current pandemic, the CDC is not recommending traditional Trick or Treating and most of the other popular Halloween events will likely be cancelled or go virtual. This is why I’m planning to have a small gathering at my home. We’ll play some good social distancing games, enjoy some treats and probably enjoy a campfire. Of course we will need some Halloween costumes! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a 2020 theme for Halloween costumes this year? Here are some fun and unique ideas for Halloween costumes for 2020, everything form Tiger king to Toilet paper.
2020 Halloween Costumes for Couples
Dress up in his and her 1920’s Costumes
If you already bought these costumes for a 2020 New Year’s party, then Halloween 2020 would be a great time to use these costumes again. Go as a Flapper and a Gangster from the 1920’s.
Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx 2020 Halloween Costumes
Because we have all been watching these two doctors on TV all year, they would make a unique costume idea for Halloween 2020. I searched for costumes for them but could not find any. I did, however, find some great accessories you could use to pull together a great Dr. Fauci or Dr. Birx costume for Halloween 2020.
For Dr. Birx you could wear a lab coat with her name tag or almost any business attire with a scarf. You have to include a Dr. Birx scraf. She has reddish blond hair that is almost always worn in a bun. I found a good wig that could work for her. Top it off with a faux syringe you could label as a COVID-19 Vaccine.
For Dr. Fauci you could choose a Washington Nationals jersey and hat, or you could also wear a nice suit or lab coat with his name tag. You could even add a fun Dr. Fauci mask. Complete the look with a gray wig and glasses.
Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin Costumes
The fact that a documentary became so popular shows us just how boring quarantine was this year. These two characters from the Netflix documentary Tiger King are sure to be a popular pick for really fun and easy to create costumes for Halloween 2020.
If you already have a blond mullet and handle bar mustache, then Joe Exotic is the perfect costume for you. If not then you will need a blonde mullet and mustache, and his shirt which you can find here. Any pair of jeans will do. If you really want to impress you can add his Joe Exotic TV hat and a pair of sunglasses.
For Carole Baskin you will need a long animal print dress and a flower crown and long blonde wig.
Expecting Couple Quarantine Baby 2020 Halloween Costumes
Maybe Tiger King wasn’t for you, so you found something else to do during quarantine. You are certainly not alone. The earliest premature babies of quarantine are already starting to fill up neonatal intensive care units. If you happen to be expecting there are some really funny shits available to use as costumes to make your 2020 Halloween fun.
Men’s 2020 Halloween Costumes
Donald Trump 2020 Halloween Costume
There are certainly plenty of Donald Trump costumes available. You can go as a traditional Donald Trump, a ride on Donald Trump, or an alien Donald Trump. The one piece you defiantly need is his hair.
Joe Biden 2020 Halloween Costume
There are not as many costume options for Joe Biden. All you really need is a face mask and a suit. If you don’t have suit there is a last minute costume T-shirt you could wear with the mask.
Shaggy or Fred costumes
Scooby Doo and the Gang were back this year in the new movie Scoob. Because of the new movie, these costumes are sure to be a popular pick this year. For Shaggy Just add a 1970’s shag wig to a green shirt and brown bell bottoms and you are all set!
For Fred you will need a blonde wig, white shirt, blue pants and a red scarf.
Corona Beer Bottle Costume
Because of the reference to the deadly virus, this costume may be a little offensive to some. When news of the Coronavirus first started to hit the news, there were some people who actually thought you could catch it from corona beer. This is what prompted some to wear the Corona beer bottle costume for the Mardi Gras parade. Of course they were not wearing masks and were criticized for the stunt. I still think with the right crowd it could be a fun and fitting costume for 2020 Halloween.
I was able to find a beer bottle costume that resembles the Corona beer bottle. The Corona brand name is not on it, but there are a couple of ways you could add the logo to the costume. You could buy a 24 pack of Corona, cut off the logo from the box, and pin it to the costume. The other option would be to buy a Corona beer T-shirt and stitch the logo onto the costume.
Kylo Ren Costume
Surely Kylo Ren from the late 2019 Star Wars Movie the Rise of Skywalker will be a popular costume for 2020 Halloween. The movie actually came out last year, but it was after Halloween. Don’t forget to add a lightsaber.
2020 Women’s Halloween Costumes
Bird’s of Prey was a hit movie this year starring Harley Quinn. Because her costume is fun and sexy, it’s sure to be a popular choice for Halloween 2020.
Velma or Daphne
Dress up as one of the girls from the Scooby Doo gang. These ladies are making a come back this year because of the new movie Scoob.
Surely Rey from Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker will be a popular pick for women this year. The Movie actually came out last year, but it was after Halloween. Don’t forget to add a lightsaber.
Toilet Paper Costume
You can dress up as the first shortage item caused by the mass panic of the corona virus. Yes you can actually buy a toilet paper roll costume. I couldn’t believe it either.
Hand Sanitizer Costume
Because hand sanitizer can be found everywhere due to the virus, nothing says 2020 better than a bottle of hand sanitizer. This is a quick and easy costume sure to get a lot of attention this Halloween.
2020 Children’s Halloween Costumes
For kids safety should be the number one priority. Not that safety isn’t important for adults, but kids are not very good at social distancing. I tried to find some costumes that incorporate a protective face mask. Remember face masks are not recommended for children under 2 years.
Hazmat Suit Halloween Costume
Protect your kid this Halloween with a hazmat suit. Obviously this suit will not actually protect your child but it is fitting for a 2020 Halloween. Make sure to wear a protective face mask.
Essential worker Costumes
We have seen a lot of news footage this year about our essential healthcare workers. Because of this doctor or nurse costumes should be a popular pick for Halloween 2020. You could certainly add a protective face mask and even add a face shield. You could even add a Dr. Fauci or Dr. Birx name tag.
Scooby Doo Costume
Did your kids enjoy the new movie Scoob? If so, This would be a great way to be cute and protected this Halloween. Pair a Scooby Doo costume with an adorable puppy face mask.
It’s not really a kids show, but this might coordinate well if mom and dad are going as Tiger King characters. Add a cute Tiger face mask to a tiger costume this Halloween.
Baby Yoda Costume
Baby Yoda is an adorable character from Star Wars The Mandalorian. Because he is a baby, this is a cute costume for younger kids. I was able to find a protective face mask to wear with it, but remember face masks are not recommended for kids under 2.
If you have a Mulan fan in your home, then this costume idea is for you. I was not able to find a child size face mask, but I was able to find an adult size face mask to coordinate with her costume. You may have to adjust the ear loops but it could work.
Sonic the Hedge Hog
There was a new Sonic The Hedge Hog movie this year so certainly he will be a popular pick for Halloween 2020. Make sure to add the matching protective gaiter mask.
Have a safe and fun Halloween 2020!
