The 5 Best Car-Themed Costumes for Halloween

Posted by

If you didn’t already feel inadequate enough as a parent, here are five car-themed costumes that will have you running to Michael’s for craft supplies at the last minute.

1. Ghostbusters Ecto-1

Who ya gonna call? This kid in his Ghostbusters Ecto-1. Given all the ghosts roaming the streets on Halloween, this kid is going to be pretty busy between capturing spooks and collecting candy.

2. Mad Max

Mad Max Power Wheels

You don’t want to get in the way of these kids because that car will simply take you out at the knees and leave you lying on the pavement to be trampled by children. Mad Max: Fury Road gets the Power Wheels treatment and these siblings make for a perfect Mad Max and Imperator Furiosa.

3. Mario Kart

Mario Halloween Cosplay

The whole gang can get in on this one. Mario, Wario, Bowser, and Yoshi are having a fantastic Halloween. When they’re not busy running each other off the track, they’re the best of friends. Although, Bowser really looks like he’s holding a bit of a grudge.

4. Transformers: Optimus Prime, Bumbleebee, and Megatron

Yes, these do indeed transform and roll out. The only thing missing is Megan Fox and gratuitous explosions.

5. The General Lee

General Lee Costume

Because who doesn’t want to drive a Charger like a mad man off the end of conveniently placed dirt ramps in order to escape clumsy law enforcement? Do that in your own car and they will cross that state line and arrest you. You can, however, legally dress up your kid like Bo and Luke Duke, build him a cardboard General Lee, and let him run through the neighborhood like it’s the set of the Dukes of Hazzard.
