Eight Epic Original Lawton-Themed Halloween Costumes
If you've gotten into the Halloween spirit, you've probably already picked out or ordered the costume you plan on taking to whatever party is calling your name this weekend... but if you're still looking for that perfect ensemble, you're running out of time to find something both unique and topical.
We've already been over the store-bought Halloween costume ideas that will likely be pretty popular this Spooky-season, but if you're even the slightest bit crafty, there are other options that have the ability to make you a Halloween party legend in Southwest Oklahoma.
Simply put, theming your costume to represent the most infamous hazards of Lawton will make you Lawton-famous for a weekend.
If only it were as simple as dressing up like a dumpster fire to represent the online water bill pay system, or maybe outfitting yourself like a dumpster fire to signify the road maintenance in town, or even putting together a DIY dumpster fire costume to visualize the Central Plaza experiment... but those are as generic as they are hilarious.
Instead, mix a little DIY into the mix... just build and add small details to what is already readily available and really drive the point home.
Bonus points if you trick-or-treat the city councilors and mayor's home beforehand for a little light-hearted tricking.
Pro-Tip: If you have too much to drink and make the terrible decision to drive yourself home, when you get pulled over, just tell the officer that you're really dedicated to your Lawton city councilor costume.
