Creative Costume Ideas Beginning with the Letter G

Have you been invited to a themed party that requires you to dress up in something that begins with the letter "G"? Or maybe you're attending an alphabet-themed event and you've been assigned this reliably grandiose letter? Either way, you're in luck because "G" offers a plethora of great and sometimes goofy costume ideas that can make you the center of attention or at least draw a few good-hearted laughs. Here are some imaginative "G" costume ideas that you can put together.


The Go-To Classic: Ghost

Nothing shouts "Halloween" more than the traditional ghost costume. But don't just think old white sheet with two holes; get creative! Use different fabrics, materials, or even LED lights to bring your spooky spirit to life. If you’re feeling particularly crafty, you can fashion a ghost from your favorite iconic ghostly character, such as Casper or the ghosts from Pac-Man.

Get Grooving: Grease Character

Grease is the word, and dressing as Danny Zuko, Sandy Olsson, or any member of the T-Birds or Pink Ladies will definitely get you into the swing of the '50s. With the right leather jacket, poodle skirt, or red heels, you'll be the one that everyone wants!
