Vampire
A vampire is a Halloween classic. A pale face, sunken eyes, fangs and fake blood make the costume complete. Add a black cape for the old-school look or wear whatever you like for the more current 'Twilight' and 'True Blood' inspired vamp.

Reporter
Love WCCO-TV? Well be inspired by the reporter ensemble -- complete with suit, press badge, camera, tape recorder (if you are a newspaper reporter) or bring a friend with a tripod and camera as your tag-along photographer.

Free Style Costume
