Show Your Wyoming Pride With These Creative Halloween Costumes
Looking for a creative Halloween costume? Here are a few ideas that honor the Cowboy State.
Sheriff Walt Longmire – What better way to represent Wyoming than dressing up as our favorite fictional lawman? All you need is a duster, a cowboy hat, a badge and a gun.
Coach Craig Bohl – If you own a University of Wyoming polo shirt, this costume is quick and easy. Of course, in order to really sell this look, you’ll want to shave your head or find a skull cap.
Cowboy Ken – Paint the bucking horse and rider on a plastic garbage can. Strap it to a pair of suspenders, throw on a cowboy hat and make sure to put on underwear.
A Jackson Pollock painting – This Wyoming-born artist is considered one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. For this costume, build a square wooden frame, print out one of Pollock’s many masterpieces and be prepared to explain the techniques of abstract expressionism.
A Teenage Bottlerocket – Salute the Laramie-based punk band by covering your body with bottlerockets. Then, paint pimples on your face, spike your hair into a mohawk and get ready to rock.
