Fishing Halloween costumes are the best. Here are four simple and fun ideas to choose from.
Halloween is right around the corner. You want a costume that speaks to your personality, but you don’t want to spend too much time picking one out. Here are four great fishing Halloween costumes to choose from.
1. The Stereotypical Fisherman
When the average person thinks of a fishermen, they no doubt envision waders, a vest and a hat with flies all over the place. Chances are, this is not how you dress every time you go fishing, so why not play into the stereotype on Halloween?
All you’ll need is a vest, waders and, of course, a flannel shirt. The hat should be extra gaudy and have way too many lures and flies hanging from it. Accessories could include a tackle box, rod and reel, and a lifejacket.
2. Your Favorite Fish
There are several costumes available to purchase. Our favorite: these stuffed versions of fish can be found for several species! What better way to show your love for salmon or bass than to be one for Halloween? Since they are stuffed and easy to slip on, you don’t have to do much more thinking about your costume than deciding which species to be this year.
3. Big Mouth Billy Bass
We all remember the talking Big Mouth Billy Bass. If you are a bass fisherman you probably received several of them one Christmas morning.
Now’s the time to relive that singing bass and be one for Halloween. It’s a simple costume you can wear normal clothes with, and the price isn’t too bad, either.
4. Commercial Fisherman
Not every fisherman does it for fun. Some do it for a living on a big boat out in the ocean. This costume is fairly easy to put together. Some rain boots, a bright yellow rain jacket and a hat will get the point across. Want to add some accessories? How about a big pipe and gray beard to feed into the stereotype? Bonus points for carrying around a prop boat steering wheel all night.
You can put the costume together yourself or purchase the whole getup. Either way, you’ll look like the Gorton’s seafood guy in no time.
