Are you in search of the perfect Halloween costume for Critical Massacre 2014? Here are 4 cycle-inspired costume ideas that will have riders and onlookers doing double takes and snapping instagrams.
1. Elliot from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
For Elliot’s iconic look, grab a red hoodie and jeans. Be sure to carefully secure the milk crate to your bike. ET can be purchased online and if ordered now, should make it to you just in time for Halloween.
2. Brad from Goonies
After Mikey and the rest of the Goonies escaped from the house, Brad was forced to steal a little girl’s bike and chase them down. For this costume you’ll need sweats and a bandana. Dress up your bike with a dainty flower basket.
3. Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon’s look is all about vintage accessories. Browse your local Goodwill for classic frames and a 90s tee. You’ll make instant friends if you share your tater tots. Please don’t share your ChapStick.
4. Pee-wee Herman
Pee-wee Herman wore quite the ensemble as he searched for his beloved bike in Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. For this look wear a dapper grey suit, bold red bow tie, and white oxfords. Don’t forget your word of the day!
