While everyone else is dressing up as the things that scare them most this Halloween, why not try something different and dress up as something you love the most... like pickles? Yes, I am really suggesting that you dress up as a pickle for Halloween. They're delicious, and it's a really easy costume to put together. To prove it, I've put together a list of pickle costume ideas. The process for dressing up as the pickled cucumber is not necessarily intuitive, which is why I've taken some creative liberties and made a list that includes literal pickle costumes, and costumes that are inspired by pickles.
Perhaps the best reason why you should dress up as a pickle is that you will also have a great excuse to bring a jar of pickles around with you as an edible prop on Halloween. Also, you might want to keep in mind that being a pickle is a great asset to a group costume. If you have partner who wants to dress up as a sandwich or a squad that wants to dress up as a whole picnic lunch, you're the perfect complement as a pickle. So lean into your sour and salty side and make Halloween a little weird this year by dressing up as an old, but seriously tasty cucumber. Because why not?
