Halloween Costumes for Geeks

Updated on September 9, 2012

Halloween for Kids and Adults

Halloween is by far the best autumn holiday. The celebration may only last one night, but what a night it is!

Halloween is the only time of year where the adults act like children and the children transform into candy crazed maniacs!

Of course, the best part of Halloween are the costumes! Halloween brings out the most bizarre Halloween outfits ranging from what appears to be tight Superman pajamas to Harry Potter costumes.

In actuality, Halloween allows grown men to dress like women and turns respectable women into,well, how should I put it, every man's fantasy!

It's awesome, so don't miss out on any halloween party!

Geek Costumes

Are you of tired of the average run of the mill halloween costumes? Are you into quirky genres like sci-fi or fantasy? Well, how about if you go out with a bang this year and dress like a geek!

With the popularity of Harry Potter and the epic teenage vampire sensation, Twilight, geeky is definitely the way to go! Heck, even 2009's Star Trek movie put Kirk and Spock back on the map!

In all honestly, I think geekdom out trumps the ever so popular reality shows! Geeks are in, hip, and hot on the rack! So, bring of those science fiction costumes and tell show off your colors!

Star Trek

Star Trek Costumes

For Trekkie fans, what a better way to celebrate the Star Trek franchise than by wearing an authentic starfleet uniform. Although Star Trek conventions are great; Halloween is where Trekkie fans have a chance to shine! And the cool part about it is...Star Trek is hip as of 2010!

The best thing about Star Trek costumes is the overall versatility. You can be whoever and whatever you want to be!

You can choose from a variety of Trek species including Human (terrain), Vulcan, Klingon, Romulan, Cardasissian, and even the Borg! Or, you can be more specific and emulate a famous star trek character such as Spock, Kirk, Picard, Worf, Sulu, Uhara, and 7 of 9!

If you decide on a starfleet uniform, make sure you look at an original series communicator. You never know when you'll be in a serious jam, and you need to get hold of the USS Enterprise or contact the captain directly! Speaking of a jam, have that federation issued phaser ready in case of an emergency. Those away missions can be awfully stressful!

Ahh, it's great to be a Trekkie!

Harry Potter


Harry Potter Costumes Ideas

Harry Potter is the most popular fantasy series of the 21st century. So for you Pothead geeks out there, why not choose a Harry Potter costume ideas or harry potter character costumes for halloween?

YOU, and you alone can make J.K. Rowling's imagination come to life by becoming one of the characters!

So why not be Harry Potter himself, glasses and all, and cast your own spells. Fly in the wizarding world and learn the ways of a powerful wizard!

Do you possess the necessary magical skills to succeed at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? The choice is yours and yours alone.

"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." ~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, spoken by the character Albus Dumbledore.

Twilight the Movie

Twilight Costume

For you Twilight fans out there, why not dress up as a werewolf or a vampire! But make sure it's Stephanie Meyer's version of the fantasy classics, where the chicks dig the wolves and the romantic, blood suckers from small town of Forks, Washington!

Twilight Costume for Guys:

Of course, the star of series has to go Edward Cullen. If you want to be the man, go with Edward, king of the Twilight vampires, and just run with it. Vampires are a cool breed and Cullen on of the best!

And if you don't want to be vampire, then \why not be Jacob Black? I mean he is the top-notch werewolf of the twilight series! And werewolves are pretty freakin awesome!

Twilight Costume for Gals

For women, you can choose to be a female vampire, but the most popular twilight character of the whole series (or the one every gal envies) is Bella Swan! She's the lucky one who falls in love with Edward Cullen and has Jacob falling at her feet.

Be Bella, gals!!
