DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Looking for a sports related Halloween costume? We’ve got a few non-traditional ideas for you.
We do not condone dressing up as Ray Rice or as a slutty cheerleader. That’s simply too easy (and overdone).READ MORE: Shoppers Back In Stores This Black Friday, But Shopping Season Kicked Off Weeks Ago
Impress your friends with an outside-the-box costume, and one that could insult them too.
1. Derek Jeter
There’s nothing classier than dressing as the great Derek Jeter, right?
Here’s the catch. Before the party begins, you should reach out to your friends and alert them that this will be your final Halloween party.
Before leaving the party, you must walk around and say goodbye to each person in the room in an incredibly drawn out and elaborate ceremony.
And the good news: as long as 256/1000 people think your costume is great, you’ll still be remembered as one of the greatest ever.
Required: Yankees jersey, hat, tears
2. Johnny Football
A Manziel jersey would be nice, but you could also settle on any A&M apparel. Carry some cash around and perhaps a bottle of alcohol. Be cocky.
But DO NOT forget your clipboard. For dramatic effect, also glue or tape a bench/stool to your backside.
Beautiful women at your side are optional, but encouraged.
Required: Clipboard, $5 dollars, pretentious attitude, bench
3. A Cleveland Cavaliers fan
If you can get your hands on a vintage LeBron James Cavaliers jersey, do so. Then char the hell out of it without destroying it.READ MORE: 16 Units Damaged In 3-Alarm Apartment Fire In Fort Worth
Wear it to the party with a big smile and you are officially a true Cavs fan! Congrats!
Required: Jersey, lighter, forgiving personality
4. J.J. Watt
Physically, this one is a challenge. But there are variations that can work.
The strongest member of your posse must dress as JJ Watt, jersey and all. Your friends — come as their favorite Houston Texan.
The Watt-dressed human then proceeds to carry the others on his back throughout the evening.
Alternatively, you could dress up some action figures, teddy bears, or beanie babies in Texans apparel and carry them around as well.
You get the idea.
Required: Strong human, Watt jersey, willing friends or inanimate stuffed animals
5. A hobbled Dwayne Wade
Outdated? Incredibly. But in Dallas, this one simply never gets old…
Required: Wade jersey, wheelchair, injured shoulder
