Hello, procrastinators! Are you searching for a last-minute Halloween costume with a local touch? You’ve come to the right place. Here are some Salt Lake City-inspired ideas for your weekend looks.
Don a bald cap and your Sunday’s best suit and tie and be #DisagreeBetter, Gov. Spencer Cox’s initiative. Shoutout to Hey Salt Lake reader Jenna W. for this one!
Dress up as any one of the over 250 books banned by Utah school districts. A few great contenders: “Milk and Honey” by Rupi Kaur, “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison, and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky.
The Avenues Ghost Bus
This one will also require some craftiness. Make a cardboard bus or cut out paper shapes of the front of a bus (windows, headlights, etc.), and attach it to a t-shirt. Then, paint your face ghost white or wear a sheet over your head with two holes cut out for eyes (classic), and boom, you’re The Avenues Ghost Bus, the Utah Transit Authority route that supposedly has no riders. As a bonus, have a friend dress up as a disgruntled resident woken up from their slumber.
Spike your hair up with gel, spray it blue, and grab your funkiest, punkiest outfit — and just like that, you’re a character from the cult classic film, “SLC Punk.”
