Denver Halloween Costume Trends

Do a Denver Halloween Costume

Get together a Halloween costume that epitomizes Denver. One trend that’s big right now are cannabis costumes, nothing says Denver Halloween 2017 like going as a joint or a sexy weed buzz.

But you can take advantage of the other things that make Denver unique, like dressing up as a well-known Denver monument – the Blue Bear or the airport’s Stallion are two costumes that scream Denver.

Or, if you’re feeling lazy, put on your best Patagonia, grab your backpack, attach a craft beer to your hip, get out your 14ner sign and go as the ultimate Denver resident. Bonus points if you incorporate your rescue dog, pull out your Subaru keys and question the servers about Vegan drink options.

It is Halloween after all and the scary Halloween costume is a staple of the genre. Paint your face into death masks or turn yourself into a creepy zombie. The scarier the better, you’re sure to be noticed if you go all out creepy.

Sexy Costumes are Always a Thing

Let’s face it, Halloween is a great excuse to get dressed up in your sexiest costume. You didn’t do all those Cross-fit classes for nothing, right? Since Denver is a city with a low body fat ratio, it’s a great place for people to sexy it up.

Bonus points if you add a twist to your sexy costume, like those Bae Watch babes. The sexy costume is an essential part of every Denver Halloween party and Coloween is the main arena for sexy fun costumes.
