Costume Ideas From the Smithsonian

Even though I’m not dressing up this year for Halloween, I don’t usually lack from costume ideas. I have a closet full of costumes including my Kaylee Layer Cake dress, a TOS Star Trek shirt and even a Ren Faire dress. But some people might not be as lucky as I am to have a great number of costumes already in their homes.

In anticipation of Halloween, Smithsonian Magazine has put out a list of costumes you could choose based on some of the most famous exhibits that have been on display at the Smithsonian Institution. You could pick to be an early human, Annie Oakley or even Dracula!

So if you are still searching for a great costume idea to wow at Halloween parties or even while you take your kids out trick or treating, you can view the whole list at the Smithsonian Magazine website.
