The night of tricks and treats inspires all kinds of creative costumes – including some awesome hockey-themed ones.
We reached out to you, our readers, via Twitter to send in the hockey-related costumes you’re wearing out and about today. And because you are the best, we had a lot to choose from. Here are some of our favorites:
COSTUME 1 – DONNA FLETCHER FROM SACRAMENTO, CALIF.
From Donna, about the tooth touch: “I tried doing a Dupuis, but it wouldn’t budge so I had to use black wax.” Most excellent.
COSTUME 2 – JOE BREEN FROM BROOKLYN, N.Y.
Bash Brother Fulton Reed from The Mighty Ducks movie series. He can shoot, but, ah, can he skate?
COSTUME 3 – CALEN SCHEIDER, GILBERTS, ILL.
Big Blackhawks fan strutting his championship. Six-year-old Calen currently plays for Little Leafs Hockey out of Dundee, Illinois – and maybe one day for the home-state Hawks.
COSTUME 4 – TRAVIS ROSS FROM TORONTO, ONT.
How about this hockey zombie masterpiece? The bloody jersey, the decomposing left eye, the protruding brain! Braaaiiiiins….BRAAAAAIIIIINS!
COSTUME 5 – JARED LEVINE FROM LONG ISLAND, N.Y.
A hockey Halloween staple: going as your favorite player or an all-time great. No. 99 Wayne Gretzky meeting his newest fan in this picture. Jared plays for the Freeport Arrows Squirt AA team – and has his eye on a few of The Great One’s records for the future.
COSTUME 6 – WILL JOHNSTON FROM CHICAGO, ILL.
Another Hawks fan, three-year-old Will is going as “Tommy Hawk” and will be flaunting his Stanley Cup championship when he goes out searching for candy this evening.
From all of us at THN: Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
