11 Non-Santa Holiday Costume Ideas

Holiday parties always seem to be lacking the fun and merriment you'd expect from such a festive time. I think this could be solved with by bringing some cosplay to the holiday... Enough with the ugly sweaters and the Santa Claus robes, I've compiled a list of fun costumes to propose. And since all things Christmas need be written in rhyme, I've acted accordingly... at least most of the time.

2. The Gingerbread Man / Via

Though normally a fun and tasty treat for the holidays, this Gingerbread Man will chase any nibblers away. Inspired by Shrek, of which you might be a fan, you may get some queries regarding the Muffin Man.

3. Buddy and Jovie / Via

Ricky Bobby and the New Girl made a film some years ago, about a grown Elf named Buddy directed by Jon Favreau. Some found it silly but others fantastic, regardless this comedy is a now holiday classic.

6. Leg Lamp Skirt / Via

A lamp shade for a skirt? That's what this is, yes. Just like in the film they play yearly on TBS. A Christmas Story plays 24 hours...with commercials, but it resumes, and now it's been represented in both the last two costumes.

10. Spiderman / Via

If you're wondering if Spidey made this list merely contractually, then you my dear friend must have not seen Love, Actually. With crustaceans expanding a cast list so scant, the audience for this pageant would soon be surprised by Hugh Grant.

11. Reindeer / Via

There is yet one more costume that has popped into my head; what about the reindeer that pull Santa's sled? They dash and they prance, rushing and running, but based on this costume, they can still look stunning.

I hope you've enjoyed my slant rhymes and snark, and I trust in your brain some ideas I have sparked. I guess it's about time for me to call it a day, but.. oh yeah, I forgot — Happy Holidays!
