Halloween is just around the corner and this year it falls on a Saturday night. For some, that means a big house party. For others, it’s extra trick-or-treating time with the kids. Either way, you’ve gotta scrape together some sort of outfit.
Need some ideas? Here are a few last minute, and very timely, sports costumes to get you out the door.
JOSH DONALDSON: This is sure to be a big hit. He is everyone’s favourite player, a baseball MVP, and he can rock a wild hairdo. Plus you get to remain comfortable in your casual Jays gear, and the beer stains from the last playoff game will blend right in.
TOM BRADY COURTROOM SKETCH: “Deflategate” was ridiculous in so many ways. But nothing was as preposterous as the courtroom sketching of Tom. The usually handsome quarterback temporarily turned into Gollum, which caused more of an uproar than any deflated football could.
NFL FIREWORK GUY: Step 1: Become an NFL superstar. Step 2: sign a lucrative contract. Step 3: Blow your hand up playing with fireworks. Couldn’t happen right? This year it happened twice. So you can go out as Tampa Bay Buccaneer CJ Wilson or New York Giants Jason Pierre-Paul.
STEVE BARTMAN: Thankfully, the Cubs were swept out of the NLCS by the Mets, keeping this classic Halloween costume relevant.
iPad GUY: Publicity stunt or total nerd? No one is completely sure (or really cares!). The iPad guy has shown up at various baseball games with food in one hand, and tablet in the other. Love chicken wings and fantasy sports? This one is for you.
And if all else fails you can always turn to this one.
YOU PRETENDING TO BE PK SUBBAN PRETENDING TO BE DON CHERRY: It’s a beauty!
