Halloween is fast approaching meaning you have less than one month left to find the costume of your dreams.
If you happen to be looking for a costume that simultaneously expresses your creativity and your love of Montreal, then look no further!
To help you out with some fun ideas, we’ve put together a list of Montreal-themed costumes that are guaranteed to wow your friends.
Montreal is hands down the most hipster city in Canada. If you don’t already happen to be a hipster, then consider throwing on a plaid shirt, fake moustache, and suspenders for an easy Montreal-themed Halloween costume. For a little inspiration, check out 5 types of Montreal hipsters.

Montrealers love poutine. Poutine is practically this city’s official food. Show your love of poutine and Montreal while creating a poutine themed costume. Go all out in a full body costume or do something cute like the poutine ensemble above.
Montrealers are serious about their hockey team. The Montreal Canadiens are one of the most beloved hockey teams in the NHL. Their fans are dedicated and hardcore. If you’re feeling pretty lazy this Halloween, why not throw on a Habs jersey and grab a hockey stick? With just a few key pieces, you’ll be instantly transformed into your favourite Habs player. #GoHabsGo
Who doesn’t love seeing the St-Hubert delivery car pull up in their driveway? It’s not only funny and cute, but by this point it’s also a little comforting. Remind your fellow Montreal friends of your fondness for this Montreal dining institution, and dress up as the the St-Hubert Chicken.
Montreal-style bagels are where it’s at. They’re sweet, chewy and come in a whole array of delicious flavours. If you’re the person in your friend group who visits Fairmount or St Viateur every weekend, then perhaps you should consider going as a bagel for Halloween. You may be surprised to learn that there are actually a ton of bagel costumes available online.
Summer in Montreal is wonderful…apart from the construction that is. Major streets become torn up war zones thanks to the slew of construction that plagues the city each summer. Go as a construction sign (we recommend taping the words “trottoir barre” to your chest), or even as a construction worker. Everyone will appreciate your subtle nod to the horrors of Montreal construction.
Is Genie Bouchard your tennis idol? Then why not throw together a cute and easy costume in honour of the Montreal-born tennis star. All you need is a white Nike tank and skirt, a visor, and an old tennis racket from your family’s garage. To finish the look, style your hair in Genie’s signature high pony braid.
Victor from Just for Laughs
You may not know his name but you certainly know his face. Victor, the Just for Laughs mascot, would make the perfect Halloween costume. He’s a little bit wacky, but certainly recognizable to all the Montrealers out there. Grab a green shirt, a red wig, and perhaps even some green body paint and transform yourself into this hilarious monster.
