Eek-F Ultimate Spook: 11 travel-inspired costumes you already have in your closet

By Haley D.

We’ve all been there: you’re a worldly, cultured, well-traveled person who’s procrastinated their Halloween costume to an almost unimaginable point. Maybe your office goes hard for Halloween and you’re just now finding that out; or the guys down the hall are throwing a last-minute costume party and you can’t make it to the thrift store in time. Your friendly neighborhood Ultimate Breakers are coming to the rescue. Presenting: the 11 quickest, easiest, travel themed Halloween costumes you just might already have in your closest.

1. Harry Potter
Our vision-challenged friends are already halfway there. A little lightning-shaped makeup and a scarf, and you’ve got a cozy look that’s completely late-October friendly. Yer a boss, Harry.

2. Greece-er > Greaser
If you own a leather jacket and a white t-shirt, you’re already Greased lightning, baby. BUT, if you own a white bedsheet and can fashion yourself a toga, your costume just got 100% punnier.

3. Someone who lost their luggage...and the luggage
The perfect couples costume? Just might be. This one's easy. Just throw on a neck pillow and look confused. As for the luggage—remember when your dad used to put you in a wagon and pull you around to go trick or treating? This is basically that.

4. Queen of England
What, you don’t have a crown laying around your office? Construction paper and some markers will do the trick too.

5. Oktoberfest Revelers
Want people to know you went to Oktoberfest in Munich? Of course you do. Drinking beer in a tent with thousands of your German-est friends >> drinking beer in a frat basement with dozens of your actual friends; everybody knows that. Break out those souvenir lederhosen and dirndls and become a walking FOMO machine.

6. Parisian
We already know you’re chic af. Break out that beret you brought home from Par-ee, some stripes, and a baguette/prop/party snack.

8. Safari guide
How much khaki is too much khaki?

9. Tour Director
Since we all know they’re superheroes, might as well lean right into it. Added bonus: it’s a great conversation starter to tell all your friends back home about the amaaaaaaazing time you had abroad.

10. Flight attendant
Grab that cute Parisian neck scarf that’s so in right now, a pencil skirt and a button down, and dress up like the ones who make the magic happen in the sky. (Also, doubles as a Pitch Perfect Garden Bellas look.)

Don’t be that person.
