Sheldon and the gang have dressed up for a lot of Halloween and costume parties throughout the run of The Big Bang Theory. They’re usually superhero themed or a Star Wars characters, and they’re always over the top. And we can admit it, pretty cool.
Here are the best costumes from the show and a few tips on how you can recreate them:
Howard and Bernadette go all in on this costume when they dye their skin blue to look like a couple of Smurfs. Even if you don’t want to go that far with the blue, you can still dress like a Smurf by cutting a simple pointed hat out of felt.
Who can forget the time Sheldon dressed as his favorite navigation tool, echolocation? The clever costume may have confused most of the Halloween party guests, but you can pull off Sheldon’s look by putting white duct tape on a pair of black sweatpants and a sweatshirt.
3. The Flash
This costume caused a bit of an argument with the gang when Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj all dressed like superhero The Flash. To make this classic costume your own, cut lightening bolts out of yellow felt for The Flash’s signature look.
4. A Hobbit
In The Big Bang Theory’s very first Halloween episode, Penny invites the guys over to her place for a Halloween party. Leonard chooses to come dressed as a hobbit, complete with a cape! But the most essential part of this costume is the pointy ears, which you can make with latex right at home.
5. Peter Pan
The boy who never grew up is a popular character in both film and literature so it’s no wonder Howard dressed up as him in the season one Halloween episode. And no Peter Pan costume is complete without Pete’s fashionable green tights. You can grab a pair from your local thrift store or an online store like this one.
6. Wonder Woman
When the gang decides to do a group costume for a New Year’s Eve party, they choose to go as the Justice League, but when Penny doesn’t wear a black wig to be Wonder Woman at first the guys get a little upset. Of course, Wonder Woman is much more than just pretty, dark hair. To pull off this costume you’ll need a trusty lasso, which you can make by spray painting a few yards of tan rope gold.
