Best Last Minute Halloween Costumes for Teachers

Updated on October 30, 2018

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays during the winter for everyone. But Halloween for students and teachers? It’s one of the most memorable events for them. As a teacher, you will spend your time planning and organizing the party and activities, but you absolutely can not forget about designing or buying the perfect costume! This year, you can pair up with your students and do a classroom Halloween theme, or you can do your own thing too.

If you are having trouble deciding you costume, don’t worry! We have already researched for the best and most trending costumes around the block. All you have to do is pick your favourite.


French Mimes

This is probably the funnest and easiest costumes to put together. Weirdly enough, our teachers would actually wear this as an everyday outfit too.

French mimes are stylish. All you need are black and white striped shirt, black pants, suspenders, white gloves, beret and bright red lipstick. A team of teachers dressed up as French mimes - would be a fun sight to watch!

Play Doh

You can pair up with another fellow teacher, put on some bright yellow t-shirts and look like play doh! What better way to entertain a class of young nursery students. This the easiest Halloween costume ever, and that too, with your favourite colleague.

Best Friend Necklace

Have a teacher bestie? Tag her along and dress up a those childhood “best friend” heart necklaces that little girls used to wear.

School Stationery and Supplies

Notebooks, rulers, tissue boxes, pencils, correctors - the other teachers and you can team up to dress up as the most prominent supplies in school.

Dental Starter Pack: Toothbrush, Toothpaste and Floss

It is impossible to have one without the other, just like your favourite teacher colleague! Pair up with her/him and dress up as important objects in one’s dental health.

This is also the perfect teaching moment to talk about the importance of dental hygiene.



What’s better than dressing up as one of the most important and healthiest meals of the day? Dress up as your favourite breakfast items! It will remind the kids the significance of the first meal of their day.


Teaching a health education class to the youngsters? This can be a good opportunity to take advantage of the Halloween season. Gather other teachers and dress up as apples, bananas, mangos and strawberries!

Coffee and Donut

Making and designing this costume will make you hungrier than bystanders watching you walk around in the costume! To make this the only things you need are felt-tip marker pens, foam sheets and boards, fiber fill as well as stationery.


Rock, Paper, Scissors

This is probably one of the best three person group! All the kids will love it. They will tell you to play with each other - it will be rock, paper, scissors coming to life!


This is a fun and intriguing costume. Extremely easy too! Gather up different heighted teachers, dress them up as dominoes and make them stand in a line. It will be just like the real thing!

All they have to do is wear an all-black outfit, stencil the shirt with perfect domino circles and paint it white.

Cartoons and Animations

Blue’s Clues & Co.

Which kid does NOT love Blue’s Clues? Team up with several other teachers and you can playfully execute this look. Do this and bring Blue’s Clues to real life. All the kids will be going crazy for you!

Toy Story: Woody and Buzz Lightyear

If you’re an unlikely duo yet there for each other through thick and thin—then here’s the perfect costume for you!

Inside Out

It is impossible to not enjoy the newest animated flick, Inside Out. You can use it as an inspiration for Halloween and dress up as the five emotions.

This will teach the kids some of the most common emotions on Halloween by dressing up as Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger. All you need are colored t-shirts and fully painted faces!

Princes and Princesses

What’s classier than dressing up as Disney prince and princesses? There are so many princesses to choose from, so you better gather your teacher friends and everyone can dress as their childhood favourite!

You have options from three eras! Classic Era: Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora. Renaissance Era: Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Mulan. Modern Era: Tiana, Rapunzel, and Merida.

Mike and Sully

Who doesn’t like Monsters Inc? It’s going to be the best halloween costume for teachers. All you need are hats, t-shirts and some felt pieces for design. Now you scare (read: teach) the kids!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Have a group of four dysfunctional teacher friends? You all can dress up as the famous 90s show Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Teachers)!

What would be cooler than teacher-turtles-turned-ninjas munching on yummy pizza in front of their students? It would be the best Halloween costume ever!

One Hundred and One Dalmatians: Cruella de Vil and the Dalmatians

In a huge school with a lot of faculty, you and the other teachers can dress up as the 101 Dalmatians while the Headmistress can dress up as Cruella de Vil. It would be epic!

Despicable Me: Minions

Get your crew together and dress up in yellow shirts, blue jeans, black suspenders with large goggles! It will be a bonus if the teachers are short heighted!

Emoji Keyboard

All the Halloween costume inspiration you need is no further than your emoji keyboard. You text all your teacher friends with different emojis, so there is no harm in dressing up your favorite emoji!

Alvin and the Chipmunks

One Halloween costume idea that is extremely simple is Alvin, Simon, and Theodore! All you have to wear is a colored sweatshirt, black jeans, sneakers and long striped socks.

No one can resist the Chipmunks! The kids will be all over you! And you brownie points if you sing the theme song in their tone too!

Movies and TV Shows

Napoleon and Pedro

For Pedro, put on a silky brown wig, a turquoise button-up collared shirt with a bolo necktie and some blue jeans. Do NOT forget the mustache! For Napoleon, put on some boot-cut jeans, a shirt with a "Vote For Pedro" printed on it, some funky glasses, and a blond afro wig. Don’t forget to vote for Pedro!

Star Wars: Maz Kanata and Rey

Fan of the Star Wars? You and your teacher colleague can dress up like Maz Kanata and Rey - the force is with you on this one!

Dressing up as Maz is very practical and comfortable for the fall weather. Rey’s look requires a little sewing, but that’s all! The rest of the elements are easily available in stores!

Zenon and Nebula

While browsing through Disney Original movies, Zenon and Nebula were a good pick for Halloween costumes.

We found that the Halloween costume was very cheap and easy to make! All you need are leggings, shirts and a vest. You can add a Z and N on the back of your shirt to help people recognize what you are. For better recognition, you can add silver sparkly makeup and pigtails!


Mouse, Moose, and Pig by Floris V. J. De Clercq

If you and your teacher bestie need a flavourful Halloween costume, this has you covered! Just top if off with a cookie, muffin and pancake - now you have the perfect costume for Clercq book series!

A fully dressed teacher can teach children about the book and its’ fun-filled adventures and lessons of spreading love and eating cake.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Suess

This 1960 classic children's book is a great way to teach those children about Dr. Seuss famous books! The reading is very simple - it is a fun rhyming book for beginners. Dressing up like the Red and Blue Fish would really entertain the class!

The most complicated part regarding costume design is determining what gestures you give and which teacher friends you implement it with.
