Red Sox Fan

Deck your Rookie of the Year out in all their Red Sox gear and you've got the perfect (reusable) costume for Halloween. Pair it up with the costume below for the perfect sibling set. 

Fenway's Green Monster

Dig out all those green clothes and deck the kids out from head to toe. This costume plays homage to the 37-foot-2-inch-high green wall in Fenway Park's left field.

Abigail Adams

There are plenty of famous Bostonians that make for great Halloween costumes and we especially love Abigail Adams as an option. A powerful woman in American history, Abigail Adams was one of the founders of the United States, bearing the designations of second First Lady and first Second Lady. She is well known for her numerous letters to her husband John Adams that are filled with complex, political discussions. 

The Citgo Sign

This is another Boston-inspired costume idea that you could totally make out an Amazon box. It pays homage to the iconic sign that has been displayed near Kenmore Square since 1940.

Make Way for Ducklings

Get all the neighborhood ducklings in on this one, it's too adorable to pass up. Get a mama duck for the front and little ducklings to follow along and everyone will know you are the famous bronze ducks created by Nancy Schön located in the Public Garden near the corner of Beacon Street and Charles Street.

The T

We love the creativity that went into this costume of everyone's favorite public transportation system, the T.
