5 Characters We Want To Dress Up As For Halloween

We’ve mentioned it before – Halloween isn’t that big of a deal around here, so we don’t actually do Halloween. We don’t dress up and go trick-or-treating (some kids do, though, which is cute), and although there’s probably some Halloween parties, we’re not exactly the partying type, so we don’t even know about any of those.

That being said, we still like thinking about what it is that we would dress up as if we were to go to a party, or go trick-or-treating. So here it is: our 5 Fandom Friday list of 5 character we would dress up as for Halloween.


1. The Winchesters

Since there’s two of us, it’s perfect. We’d have a heated discussion about who gets to be who, but given that my name is already Sam and Frodo’s older than I am, she’d get to be Dean and I’d be Sam. It would exactly be difficult costumes to make, given that they usually wear plaid and we already have lots of plaid shirts in our closets. And jeans too, of course. We’d just have to borrow jackets somewhere, and ta-da, easiest Halloween costume ever. And we could run around throwing salt at ghosts.

2. S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents

This is a bit trickier, because we don’t own that many black clothes. But Frodo’s already got a S.H.I.E.L.D. ID from when she was in New York, which is awesome. And we could just walk up to everyone dressed as a super hero and ask them if they’ve heard of the Avengers Initiative (if me muster the courage to talk to people. That part would be the trickiest 😀 ).

3. Frodo and Sam

This one’s a no-brainer. After all, we are Sam and Frodo. But it would take some time and preparation to find or make the costumes, and I’m not sure that Halloween would be worth the trouble. Although, if we already had the costumes, we could just cosplay Sam and Frodo on the next couple of cons. We plan on doing that anyway, some time in the future.

4. Witches

We have a couple of wands to choose from, and we’ve both bin sorted into Ravenclaw on Pottermore. So all we’d need are a couple of clothes with the Ravenclaw sigel, and definitely scarves, because those scarves are awesome. Although technically we’d be out of Hogwarts by now, so maybe we’d just need the scarves an robes and pretend to be grown-up witches. Could be fun.

5. Shadowhunters

Same problem as with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents: we don’t have many black clothes, and none of them would qualify or pass as Shadowhunter gear. So we’d have to get a couple of things, including (fake) weapons, to even make the costume. We have the Shadowhunter Codex, so we could choose a couple of runes to draw on our skin. It’d be awesome. And we could just tell everyone who looks at us that the fact that they can see us means they have the Sight. Not many people would understand it, but it’s Halloween, who cares if people think we’re nuts?

  1. I want to dress up as a Shadowhunter or someone from Agents of SHIELD as well!
    The NaNoWriMo kick-off event in my town is on Halloween, so they announced that we should dress up as literary characters. I am still very undecided, but maybe I can make the Shadowhunters theme work somehow. That would be so cool!

  2. Great idea 😊 In Sweden we are not very big at halloween, but it not unusual to dress up. But I Think that we line to focus on costumes that are scary and horror related. I would love to do a Beetlejuice cosplay for example. 😁

    • Woah don’t jinx it! Supernatural can’t end yet! But yeah, I guess a lot of people are going to be Shadowhunters next year, although that might depend on the success of the show 😀
