Halloween Costumes: Edge-Wielding Characters

Halloween is just around the corner! Have you decided on a costume yet? If you’re like me then you won’t even think about it until the day before Halloween. When this happens I resort to my go-to costume, which is a nerd (cue witty comment from my husband alluding to the fact that I am a nerd at heart).

It’s ok though, because you don’t have to be a nerd! Here are some characters with an edge that would make for stellar costumes:


Captain Jack Sparrow






These next two ideas sort of happened by mistake… I was just going to include Wesley from the Princess Bride, but then I thought, “Wow. He looks like Zorro.” Hence the next two costume ideas:



I guess what I’m trying to say, is if you can’t decide whether to be Wesley or Zorro, you can be both. Problem solved.


Peeta (The Hunger Games)



Luke Skywalkder


So… this isn’t a knife or a sword… but shoot. It’s a light saber and they are awesome!


Peter Pan / Hook



Pretty much anyone from Lord of the Rings



How about Abu?


Frightening, isn’t he?

If dressing up as a monkey isn’t your thing, swap the monkey suit for an Aladdin costume.


What’s your favorite edge-wielding character, and more importantly, what are you going to be for Halloween?
