If you’re here, you’re probably like me. You’re not interested in dressing up for Halloween as a witch, ghost, or character from the highest grossing movie of the year. You want something different.
You want something people aren’t expecting. Something clever or funny or unique or obscure or downright strange.
I confess, I love obscure costumes. I love that they’re these little secrets shared only by people who can recognize them. The best of these costumes still work either as bizarre or scary for people who don’t know what they’re from. These aren’t generally the type of costume that you can pick up in a Halloween store all in one package. They aren’t “popular” enough to be mass produced. These unique costumes are ones you have piece together yourself from what’s available. I’m including a few of these ideas here with elements I’ve pulled together that can create a one of a kind costume.
For some people, obscure can go too far. Not everyone wants to dress up as a minor character from Good Omens that barely anyone will recognize. And not everyone wants to go through the trouble of making a costume from scratch.
But you still want something odd, something unusual. If what you want is a costume that will make people do a double-take, I’ve got you covered. I’ve gathered a bunch of costumes that if you roll up at a party wearing them, you’re going to get a big reaction.
If you’re thinking maybe this is a little too odd for you, check out my guides to the best Stranger Things Halloween costumes, best Avengers Halloween costumes, and best mermaid Halloween costumes of 2017 .
Trick or Treat, friends. Let’s get unusual.
Twin Peaks is a classic show from the master of weird David Lynch. With the Twin Peaks: The Return remake coming out, this drama, murder mystery, comedy, surrealist soap opera is on our minds again. The Log Lady isn’t among the main characters to be sure, but she is maybe the most unique. For a Log Lady costume, first things first–you need a log. This Kikkerland Log Micro Bead Pillow for $15.54 is perfect because it looks just like a log but is a fraction of the weight and won’t give you splinters. The rest is just matching her outfit from the show.
Her iconic Red Glasses here for $7.99 have clear lenses meant to be used as a costume so there’s no worry about straining your eyes. For the Log Lady’s layered look, begin with a dark blue Turtleneck from $11.17, then a musterd yellow Plaid Button Down Shirt from $9.99, and cover that with this $10.31 Chunky Knit Cardigan. If you’re going for detail, an Acorn Pin at the neckline for $9.95 and this $17.99 Bobbed Wig are the finishing touch. Now you’re ready walk around dispensing the wisdom of The Log.
Price: $15.54 (9 percent off MSRP)

If I were going to wear one of the costumes from this list, it would absolutely be this one. I love Rusty Lake games. I love their puzzles and I love how completely unsettling they are. The Corrupted Soul is the image that freaks me out the most. I won’t get to much into the mystery of Rusty Lake, but whenever you see the Corrupted Soul, nothing good is about to happen. For a profoundly unsettling costume, it’s easy and fairly cheap to assemble. Start with this Black Zentai Bodysuit with holes for eyes for $29.99. For the eyes, check out my guide to the best Halloween makeup palettes so you can paint your exposed skin either white or red. Add Black Antlers worn as a headband for $14.59 and you’ve got a creepy Corrupted Soul costume that will freak everyone out and scare Rusty Lake fans even more.
Carry around some captured memories, I mean, this White Cube for $27.08 or a $15.65 Stuffed Parrot as a stand in for Harvey.

It’s not just adults who want to stand out. This kids’ Morphsuit of Zalgo is going to turn heads with the way it looks like your body disappears at the waist. Zalgo is an internet urban legend out of Creepypasta, a site that brings together stories that will never allow you to sleep again. This one-piece body suit covers every inch of your body and even includes white claws on the ends of your fingers. This is a plus for being fully transformed, but a minus if your little one is claustrophobic. The fabric is thin to prevent over-heating, but if you’re planning to be out at night in a colder climate, it could get chilly. This suit does run a little small, so keep that in mind when ordering.
