As everybody knows, Halloween is right around the corner and finding a Halloween costume is always a big decision. So to help people out with some simple costume ideas and avoid the stress, here are five Lubbock-themed costume ideas.

  • Kliff Kingsbury

    This Halloween costume could be put together in minutes. A few of things you would definitely need for this costume. First, a clipboard. Make sure to place that in front of your pants just like him. Of course you have to have the sunglasses and make sure you wear a Texas Tech shirt or a fancy suit.

  • Buddy Holly

    We all know the signature look for Buddy Holly were his big, black glasses. You could walk around with a fake mic or even just a cardboard guitar - or even a real one. Simple, nothing too extreme and saves you money while representing the 806's rich musical history.

  • The Masked Rider

    This is a money saver. A black mask, black hat and red cape that matched the Texas Tech Masked Rider's style. And if you have children or nieces/nephews, maybe you could borrow their stick horse to take along for the Halloween ride.

    Now Lubbock always has wind or something that messes up our allergies. So why not. You could dress like the kid from "Peanuts," Pig-Pen, with shorts, a t-shirt that you don’t care about and just throw a whole lot of dirt on your clothes and face and BAM -- you’re done! Or you could get a crazy cardboard cut out and color it brown.

  • Whataburger Table Tent

    Everybody LOVES Whataburger. That’s a no brainer. With this Halloween costume idea, you could get a cardboard box, make it orange with white stripes, put a number on it and write Whataburger at the top. A sandwich board sign would also be perfect for this. With a little creativity, you can turn it into a Whataburger table tent no problem.
