Pinocchio should’ve listened to you, Jiminy, and why not when you’re dressed this sharply? Channel your inner gentleman (or gentlewoman) with this ensemble and gather some khaki pants, a white button-up shirt (with the collar popped up), a long black blazer, and a blue top hat.

Top it off with an umbrella and you’re all set.

Paddington Bear is always ready for poor weather, and with his costume, you can be too. A long blue coat, a red rain hat, and red rain boots are essential for this outfit.

For extra points, find a brown suitcase and attach a note saying “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” to your jacket.

Willy Wonka

What better way is there to celebrate Halloween than by dressing up like the king of candy himself?

The basics outfit requires a knee-length purple or burgundy blazer on top of a white button-up and brown khakis, paired with a brown or black top hat. The majority of the movie often shows Willy Wonka with a walking stick, which can easily be subbed for – you guessed it – an umbrella.

Christopher Robin


Christopher Robin/Disney Movies

There are two ways to dress as Christopher Robin this Halloween, both equally simple. The first option, based off of the recently released Disney movie, includes a long blue trench coat and fedora overtop of a two-piece suit.

The second option, following the route of the original cartoon, calls for a yellow raincoat and rain hat, black boots, and both outfits can be capped off with an umbrella. Extra points if you bring along Pooh Bear or a red balloon.

Mary Poppins

Channel your inner nanny with this little-to-no-effort costume. Variations of the costume include a royal blue blazer and skirt, although the same look can be attained with a black skirt, a white button-up, a red bow tie, and a black umbrella.

Known as one of Batman’s most formidable enemies (second to the Joker, of course), The Penguin ensemble can be done with a monocle, top hat, tuxedo, and an umbrella. For bonus points, stuff your belly with a pillow or extra bed sheets, The Penguin is notorious for having a generous beer belly.

Rule the Mushroom Kingdom and find your Super Mario, all while staying dry. A long pink dress (the fluffier the better!), long white gloves, and a crown are the essentials of this outfit.

To top it off, dust off your largest pink or yellow umbrella – just don’t get kidnapped by Bowser!

Welcome to one of the most versatile Halloween costumes of 2018.

Like the video game, there are a number of ways to dress up your character, whether it’s the use of camouflage colours and cargo pants, a skeleton outfit, or a dinosaur onesie. Top it off with your glider, aka your umbrella, and you’ll be the talk of the town – or at least, the talk amongst 12-year-old gamers.
