9 Easy Rainproof Costume Ideas

9 Easy Rainproof Costume Ideas

Halloween is fast approaching. And if you checked your forecast, you might agree that for some areas the best idea for a costume should be something that will help keep you dry in the rain. So for fun, we offer the following rainproof costume ideas:

Rainproof Costume Ideas

  1. Morton Salt Girl — for those of you who can remember, the logo for Morton Salt is a girl with an umbrella, yellow dress and a container of salt (easy!).
  2. Mary Poppins — she loved umbrellas! Add a big bag, perhaps a spoon, and you have one of the most favorite nannies around.
  3. Meteorologist—Carry a microphone, umbrella (and a copy of the Farmers’ Almanac)!
  4. Sea Captain — A pair of rubber boots and a bright yellow rain slicker will have you looking like an old salt in no time.
  5. Caught in the Rain – If it’s warm rain, go with the weather. Dress as if you’d been caught in the rain already with an inside-out umbrella, newspaper or other garbage stuck on your leg, and crazy hair.
  6. Tea Bag or bag of leaves — how about filling a clear plastic bag with some brown leaves and wearing it around the bottom half of your body.  (The plastic should help keep most of you dry.)
  7. Fly Fisherman—Grab some waders, a fishing vest, fishing hat, hip boots, fishing pole.
  8. Raining Cats and Dogs — take the literal approach and find some stuffed animal cats and dogs. Tie them to an umbrella, and voila!
  9. Singing in the Rain—This one is very easy to pull off. See video below! Plus who wouldn’t want to be Gene Kelly for a night?

Got any good ideas to share? Happy Halloween — rain or shine!

    A bag of leaves. You could cut leg & arm holes, stuff a trash bag with anything you want, put real or fake leaves around the top.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
