Can’t think of what/who to dress up as this Halloween? Let some of the more memorable Halloween TV episodes of the past few decades serve as your inspiration. Try not to dwell on the fact the actors had makeup and wardrobe departments creating their looks and just go to town. Surely you’ll come up with an ensemble worth of a Pawnee Parks Department or Dunder Mifflin party.


Go topical/just plain cute, i.e., the Parks and Rec category:

(OK, so it’s really only cool if you actually turn into a soldier, and it’s better if you don’t turn into the damsel.)
