Fun and Easy Marijuana Costume Ideas for this “Halloweed”
If Halloween is your favorite holiday, we are absolutely on the same page (and you’re on the right one!). The opportunity to dress up is easily one of the most exciting parts of the festivities, and given that it’s a once-a-year deal, it can be difficult deciding what you’d like to go as.
A good place to start? Base your costume around one of your own interests or passions. Of course, this probably doesn’t narrow down your search, too far — but how about you go with a costume you're less likely to see on every other guest at the Halloween party? Why not branch out a bit and get creative? Why not have some fun putting together your very own "Halloweed" look?
Plus, if you’re looking to bring some humor into the spookiest holiday, then a cannabis-themed costume is a great way to do it! Can’t seem to come up with a top-notch marijuana costume idea? We’ve got you covered. Here are some of our favorite cannabis-themed Halloween costume ideas. Happy Halloweed!
10 Awesome Marijuana Halloween Costume Ideas
Personally, we’re huge fans of funny weed Halloween costumes. So, we also like to think that we’ve got some great ideas up our sleeves — here are some of the best, just in time for Halloweed.
1. Keep It Simple: Dress Up as Weed
Simple doesn’t always need to mean boring — and in this case, it honestly doesn’t. There are so many ways to put your own spin on a standard cannabis Halloween costume.
Maybe you’ll go the obvious route, and don a huge pot leaf, right on your body. If you’re making the costume yourself, this will give you a lot of flexibility with materials, as well as a chance to get creative with color or texture. Want to show up to the party as a sparkly, pink pot leaf? If not, maybe you do now. Or, maybe you’re a bigger fan of the classic, green foam look. That works, too.
And don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Dressing as “weed” doesn’t have to mean a pot leaf, even if that’s the visual that typically comes to mind — there are plenty of other fun possibilities, from a potted plant, to a camouflage suit.
2. The Stoner Superhero
Another fun option if you’re in the market for an entertaining, weed-themed costume, comes in the form of the stoner superhero. Again, there are a number of ways you can assemble this sort of costume, whether you’re making it yourself, or purchasing it from a store.
For instance, you’ll be able to find both male and female variations of this very concept. Depending on what you’re going for, it’s possible to steer this costume in the humorous direction, but it’s also possible to go for something a bit more sultry. There’s a lot of versatility with this one, and, with the resurgence of superhero movies, you will definitely be giving a fun twist on what’s sure to be a hot Halloween costume theme!
3. The Cannabis Leaf Business Suit
This one is exactly what it sounds like: A sleek business suit, although instead of the typical grays and blacks, it’s covered with pot leaves. It’s certainly a simple costume option, but it’s also a bold one — seriously, if you turn up in this suit, you’re going to have people’s attention.
Really, who’s to say that stoners can’t dress professionally?
4. The World’s Largest Joint
All right, so, maybe you’re not a fan of pot leaf costumes — how about you try something a bit different? Instead, you can always dress up as the biggest joint you (or anyone else) has ever seen.
It’s pretty easy to find a foam version of this look, from various costume sellers. However, if you’re on the craftier side of things, the joint costume is always something you can construct for yourself. That way, you can even add unique touches to your costume, if you’re feeling up for that. After all, no two joints are the same — so, why should every costume be the same? Don’t be afraid to mix up the color, shape, and more.
5. The Marijuana Chef
Maybe you’re able to bake up some of the best edibles in town (or just wish you could). Why not show this off through your Halloween costume? You’re a master in the kitchen, just as much as any other. You can even carry around a tray of (fake) pot brownies, as you make your rounds around the party.
All it takes to pull off this look is a weed-print apron, paired with a matching weed-print chef’s hat. Throw this on over some street clothes, and just like that, you’re good to go. It’s a fantastic option if you’re hoping to stay as comfortable as possible, without the hassle of bulkier costume elements, such as foam.
6. The Chillest Soft Chews at the Party
Are you a fan of delicious cannabis soft chews? Understandable, because a lot of weed connoisseurs are in the same boat. Really, who doesn’t want to experience the nostalgia of tearing into a pack of gummies, all while reaping the benefits of THC? It’s not a bad time, if we do say so ourselves.
This is also a more creative option if you’re hoping to dress up as a cannabis product this Halloween. Generally speaking, the go-to options are pot leaves and blunts, and as much as we love those costumes, it can be interesting to mix it up. Why not turn yourself into a single or even a pack of cannabis soft chews? This is a Halloween costume that’s sure to get you some giggles and smiles, if that’s what you were aiming for.
7. Just a Bag of Weed
Take your standard pot leaf costume a step further, and transform it into something more — more weed, that is. Instead of just one leaf, why not be the entire bag? Not only can you find this costume at a number of costume and party supply stores, but it’s also a simple one to put together on your own.
Just start with an all-black outfit as the base. Then, on your midsection, use paper and plastic to create the visage of an enormous bag of weed. Pin the bag to yourself, or even use Velcro, if that’s an option for you.
Of course, if you’re short on time, you can always pick up one of these costumes assembled and ready to be worn.
8. The Pot Head (Literally)
Maybe you’re someone who appreciates subtlety when it comes to Halloween costumes. Or, maybe you enjoy a good (or bad) pun, and want to put a smile on people’s faces, as they realize what you were going for. Well, if that sounds anything like you at a Halloween party, consider trying out a “pot head” costume.
Rather than offering any serious indicators that weed is the basis of your costume, this one gives viewers just a second of thought. However, as soon as they realize your intention, it’s bound to lead to a chuckle or two.
While some examples of this costume feature cannabis leaves within the pot on your head, others don’t even take it that far. If you want to be as sly as possible, all you’ll need to do is find a flower pot inspired hat, and there you go — you’re officially a “pot head.” Take it even more obscure with an all-over cannabis leaf-printed hat that, bonus, can be worn throughout the year, too!
9. The Queen of Cannabis
Looking for a costume that’s on the regal side, but also the stoner side? Then we’ve certainly got the solution, for you. This Halloweed, consider dressing up as an elegant cannabis queen — voluminous tulle skirt and all. If you’re really looking to tie this whole look together, consider adding a simple, green wig into the picture. Also, some sparkly, green makeup is another fun touch, if you want to capture the essence of a true stoner queen.
10. The Cannabis Couple’s Costume
Want to dress up with your significant other or best bud? You could keep it simple with matching t-shirts that say “best buds” with a pot leaf or nug, or you could go another route - dressing as flower and papers! Because what is marijuana flower without the papers to roll it up? If you’re more of a bowl person, try tying your favorite bowl (or a cheaper one!) with a piece of twine or hemp string to wear as a necklace, and coordinate your clothes with the bowl’s color!
Make Sure to Have a Fun Time This "Halloweed"
Try not to stress too much about your costume — the point of Halloween is having a fun, spooky time. Instead, let the costume buying or making process be enjoyable, and use it as an outlet to express some of your creativity.
