There’s a definite art to the perfect Halloween costume. You want to stand out and get noticed, but at the same time you don’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing.
Or maybe you do, which is fine. The sexy nurse, or sexy witch or buff superhero costume always works and usually gets you noticed. But it’s not like the old standbys are going to win a Halloween costume contest on originality are they?
But wait. Costume contest, you ask? Would that be Halloween costume contests at Borgata Nightlife?
It starts out at mur.mur Mondays October 27 for a kind of pre-Halloween costume extravaganza. First prize is $1,000 with a second prize of free bottle service and an overnight stay.
On Halloween night—which conveniently is a Friday night this year—Borgata Nightlife has three costume contests with one each at mur.mur, MIXX and Gypsy Bar. First place is $2,500 at MIXX and mur.mur with free bottle service and an overnight stay for second. At Gypsy Bar, first prize is $1,000 with a $250 bar tab and reserved table for second place.
So if that isn’t enough to get the creative juices flowing, we don’t know what is. But, in an effort to help, here’s a look at the top 10 Halloween costume ideas for 2014 from the Huffington Post.
#10 Orange is the New Black – Based on the popular Netflix show.
#9 D List Celebrity Drama – Pretty much anyone from reality TV.
#8: Comic Book Heroes – ‘Nuff said. Great for group costumes.
#7: Spiderman – As opposed to a comic book hero.
#6: TMNT – That stands for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, ‘cause they’re like, back.
#5: The Lego Movie – Great for the homemade approach.
#4: Hunger Games – A new movie comes out in November, so this is like telling the future.
#3: Game of Thrones – Some characters do wear clothes – occasionally.
#2: Maleficent – There’s a lot of movies and TV shows on this list.
#1: Characters from Frozen – Another shot at a cute group costume.
Or you could go with what is widely reported to be the No. 1 costume this year—a medical hazmat suit—but, well, you’re just going to be part of the crowd and kind of making everyone else uncomfortable. But we don’t judge.
Oh wait, we do.
