10 Halloween Costume Ideas Inspired by Theatre

October 23rd, 2015 by CAPASMM

Halloween is right around the corner and you still don’t have a costume idea?!

Don’t panic, because we’ve got you covered. Here are 10 spectacular DIY Halloween costume ideas inspired by upcoming shows.

1. If you’re too excited about Christmas to think about Halloween, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas can be your muse. Dress up as the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, or a Whoville Townsperson!

2. Tap into your inner Julie Andrewsas you walk around singing “The Hills are Alive!”as Maria von Trapp from The Sound of Music.

3. Science geek? Don the iconic look of astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of National Geographic’s StarTalk, with a stylish and stellar solar system vest. You can even get your pet involved with a solar system hat or recruit a friend to accompany you as Bill Nye. The whole family can even dominate the universe as a whole solar system!

4. Looking for a group costume idea? Motown the Musical is the ticket. Find multi-color bell bottoms, and BAM! You’ll be singing:
A B C – It’s easy as, 1 2 3 – As simple as, do re mi – A B C, 1 2 3 – Baby, you and me girl

Or channel some Diva attitude as Diana Ross. You’re theme song for the night will be “I’m Coming Out!”

5. Does your toddler love “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood?” Your little one can easily become Prince Wednesday, Katerina Kitty, or even Daniel Tiger himself. We just can’t promise they’ll ever take the costume off again!

6. It’s a take as old as time, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast also makes a great couples’ costume idea. Transforming into Belle and the Beast can be as easy as looking through your closet. If you really want to step up your game, go for Lumiere or Babette. Or include the four-legged family members in your house to create the perfect Beast.


7. Is your TV constantly on “The Wild Kratts?” Maybe it’s time to bring them to life in a fun and easy family costume to have a wild, wild Halloween adventure in!

8. You’re on a budget and don’t want to buy a Halloween costume, but still want to participate in the celebration? No problem. With a black tie, white button-up short, and black pants, you’ve just become The Book of Mormon‘s Elder Price.

9. All the girls dream of being effortlessly lifted in the air by Dirty Dancing‘s Johnny Castle in a sweeping grand finale. Become Baby Houseman for a night, and go out there and get your Johnny!

10. Feeling a little green? Elphaba from Wicked captures the essence of Halloween. No Elpaba is complete without a pretty in pink Galinda!

Don’t want to dress up? That’s ok. Pumpkin carving is a lot of fun! And we’ve got some great ideas for that too…

Behind the Scenes with Lindsay Nicole Chambers

Take a behind-the-scenes look at Kinky Boots!

Columbus native Lindsay Nicole Chambers (who plays Lauren) fill us in on everything from her favorite song in the show to her favorite emoji. Don’t miss Kinky Boots at the Ohio Theatre now through Sunday!

Kinky Boots is Broadway’s huge-hearted, high-heeled hit! With songs by Grammy and Tony-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.

Don’t Miss Kinky Boots!

Kinky Boots…the words probably conjure up different thoughts for everyone. For me, six months ago, it would have brought to mind the fantastic Broadway show that will be at the Ohio Theatre Oct. 6-11. Now, after traveling all over Columbus with two pairs of red, thigh-high leather boots and trying them on the movers and shakers in town, the words mean so much more!

We wanted to show what Kinky Boots The Musical is all about – standing up for who you are and what you believe in, being who you want to be and showing the world what you care about. We asked 18 Columbus residents, from the internationally famous to your next-door neighbor, to wear the boots and stand up for a cause that is close to their hearts. Columbus is a great city, so it figures that we had a great response! Truly, our boot-wearers really got into the moment and had a lot of fun with it.

We began rolling out the photos last week on the Broadway in Columbus Facebook and Instagram sites. Check out our pages and be sure to like and follow to see all the “kinky” posts. If you happen to have a pair of your own kinky boots, feel free to post a pic and tell us what you believe in…be sure to tag #kinkyboots and #bwaycbus!
