Halloween is fun for children and adults. I was noted for my annual Halloween parties & creative costumes & really enjoy this time of year.
Make Your Costume Stand Out from the Crowd
What Costume Will You Wear for a Florida Themed Halloween?
Start thinking about all the things Florida related and you'll come up with a lot. Someone surely will arrive in an alligator costume. Expand your thinking to all the other Florida birds and wildlife.
How about the costumes relating to the theme parks. There's Disney, SeaWorld and Universal. That gives you tons of great costume ideas.
Don't forget the space coast, hurricanes, retirees, beach vacations, and other aspects of Florida for costume inspiration. I've gathered some costumes and DIY outfits below for you to think about.
In Florida for Halloween?
What Will We Be for Halloween in Florida?
We received an invitation to a block party for Halloween in our retirement community. How fun!
My husband just made a face as he finds it hard to think up costume ideas. Already my mind is churning with possible outfits. Some would work for me, some are more for guys and some make good couple costumes.
Wait until he sees what I've rounded up for him to choose from. I'm sure one of these will spark his imagination.
Florida Tourist Costume Ideas
His or Her Tourist Costumes - Think Tacky, Tacky, Tacky
Remember Tastefulness Is Not the Way to Go
The tacky tourist costume can come straight from your closet. Hot pink capri pants? Great! Orange t-shirt, lime green flip flops, flower-print overshirt... you are on the way to a great costume.
Add a colorful beach tote or a pool noodle, and extreme, glitzy sunglasses are a nice touch too. You might not have all of these on hand, so head to the local thrift shop. Remember, the more colorful, the better.

I've been dressing for Halloween for 28 years while living in Orlando and I never considered a Florida theme...except maybe when I dressed as a redneck pumpkin! :)
