25 Halloween Costume Ideas From 25 Great TV Shows

Now that Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire have made incest acceptable and totally cool, my wife and I are planning on dressing up as Bob and Louise Belcher, from Bob’s Burgers, for Halloween this year. (Pedophilia? Never heard of it.) It’s a chance for her to wear pink bunny ears in public and for me to be lazy — to become Bob, all you need is a mustache, an apron, and pants, and I’m fairly certain I can put on at least two of those things.

For those who want to try a little harder this Halloween, while still paying tribute to one of your favorite characters, here are 25 occasionally clever costume ideas for 24 great (and one Dexter) TV shows.

1. Bathing Suit Bob Benson (Mad Men)

2. Clumsy Carol (Breaking Bad) (have to constantly carry bag of oranges)

3. Daenerys Targaryen…just Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)

4. Daisy Queen Manager Boyd Crowder (Justified)

5. Touch Choice Rosa and/or Amy (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) (two female friends stand in a corner at a party, track which one gets hit on more, based on the important conversation here)

6. Lumberjack Dexter (Dexter)

7. Live Tweeting Donna (Parks and Recreation) (carry around phone, wear “DOWN WITH MELLIE” shirt)

8. Moaning Tina Belcher (Bob’s Burgers)

9. Tommy Bahama Kenny Powers (Eastbound & Down)

10. Trapped In a Coil Frank (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)

11. Good Morning Miami Team (SNL)

12. Bear Mode Max (Happy Endings)

13. Badass Carol (The Walking Dead) (give out knives to little kids)

14. GQ Annie and Britta (Community)

15. Chalupa Batman (The League) (Batman suit with shredded meat on top)

16. Jolly Green Jizz Face (Veep) (paint yourself green, dab face with white-out)

17. Cocaine Capone (Boardwalk Empire)

18. Ray as Malory (Archer)

19. Drunk Batman (New Girl)

20. Stelio, Stelio Kontos (American Dad!)

21. Tongue Tie(d) Guy (Hannibal)

22. Angel of God Tiffany (Orange Is the New Black) (rotting teeth helps)

23. Wig-Wearing Elizabeth Jennings (The Americans) (put on a new wig every time someone talks to you)

24. Meth Damon In a Crucifictorious Shirt (Friday Night Lights) (wear Todd’s army jacket to really confuse)

25. Mitt Romney (30 Rock) (still topical)
