Board Game Costumes

Jess: Halloween is fast approaching! The time for ghosts and ghouls is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing the amazing costumes that people come up with each year. Board games might not be your first thought when coming up with a costume, but they can be some great inspiration.

This Spy from Codenames is an easy costume to slap together.

Think of all the cool characters in your favorite games. Some of my top picks are:

  • Investigators from the Call of Cthulhu games
  • Spies from Codenames
  • The adorable gods from Santorini
  • Adventurers from Clank!
  • Leaders from Scythe
  • Any of the monsters from King of Tokyo
  • Dead of Winter Survivors
  • The travelers from Near and Far
I would love to see someone make a Rin costume!

These are just a few suggestions to get your gears turning. If you need more inspiration check out these awesome board game costumes that fans submitted to us.
