90s television Halloween costumes

Updated on April 8, 2015

90s TV character Halloween costumes

Halloween is a great time for reminiscing. When else do you get to dress up in a ridiculous costume and party? Being born in the mid-eighties, the nineties were a great time for me and hold some great memories, especially the television shows of the time. On this lens, I have collected together some great 90s TV inspired costumes to get you in the mood for Halloween.

Baywatch costume

One of the most watched shows in the world, Baywatch launched Pamela Anderson upon the world and kept David Hasselhoff on everybody's screens long after the end of KnightRider.

A Baywatch costume is a very simple one to make (if you're confident in your body that is).

Women: A plain red swimming costume with optional red shorts.

Men: Red shorts and a red sporty jacket.

Both costumes can be improved by adding a red float and a Baywatch lifesavers badge as in the cast picture or the Amazon module below.

And remember; to make your costume truly memorable, you need to run in slow motion.

If you don't have the inclination to make your own costume, try this pre-made one. You can also buy a red inflatable buoyancy device on Amazon, as well as sew-on Baywatch logos and David Hasselhoff masks.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers define 90s kids television for me. I watched the show religiously and was constantly pretending to be the Red Ranger and fighting imaginary monsters.

Why not dress up as a Power Ranger this Halloween? Although it is a fairly complicated costume to make when compared to many others, it can be done.

Visit this Wiki on how to make a Power Rangers costume

Alternatively you can buy some great costumes on Amazon (see below for the link)

The Simpsons costumes

Still going strong today 'The Simpsons' ran throughout the entire 90s and is an extremely popular show and great for Halloween costumes.

The basics of a Simpsons costume are fairly easy. You will need yellow face paint to cover your entire face and then add the correct clothing which are all fairly easy garments to find. For the Simpsons family themselves these are:

Homer: Blue trousers and white shirt

Marge: Green dress and red bead necklace (the blue hair can get quite tricky).

Bart: Blue shorts and shoes and an orange t-shirt. The skateboard and slingshot are optional.

Lisa: Orange dress and shoes and white bead necklace. You could make the costume even better by adding an inflatable saxophone.

Maggie: A light blue onesie and red dummy.
