When it comes to Halloween costumes, there are a few stock options like a witch, vampire or pirate. Another one that can be added to the list is the hippie. The hippie has come to define the sixties in a major way, and makes for a popular costume choice. It is just one of many fun 60s costumes someone can wear on Halloween. There are many fun costumes to choose from for both men and women.
Part of what made the hippie movement so great was not just the ideals or the fashion, but the music. The era had some classic tunes by legendary artists. Some of those said artists make for great Halloween costumes. Jimi Hendrix is an easy and fun costume to throw together. Dressing up like the Beatles during the Sargent Pepper era is a fun choice for a group costume. For women, there are numerous choices as well. Cher is a great option, with many fun costume variations.
Aside from being an era with great music, there were many classic TV shows from the 60s with iconic characters. For a fun horror theme, a couple could dress up as Gomez and Morticia Addams (or Herman and Lilly Munster if you prefer). A sexy costume for a woman would be dressing up like Barbara Eden's famous character from I dream Of Jeannie. For men, they can dress up as Gilligan.If pop culture is not your thing, there are many iconic social and political figures from the 60s that will make great costumes. A couple could dress up as John and Jackie Kennedy. Richard Nixon is not only a fun choice, he comes with his own mask.
Halloween is a really fun holiday, and the 60s were a fun decade. Naturally, the two were made for each other. There are many costume ideas from that era that are not only fun, but instantly recognizable for adults and children alike. When looking for a costume, why not trip back to the sixties? Its always a groovy choice.
