The ComicsAlliance Halloween Costume Countdown: Archie!

October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It’s the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.

But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I’m spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we’re heading to Riverdale for costumes based on Archie!

Option 1: Archie

 

CostumeCraze.com

 

Well somebody got a little happy withe the Lasso tool in PhotoShop, didn’t they? Even as someone who is almost universally pro-Archie, that kind of trickery makes me pretty suspicious right off the bat, unless those pants actually do look like that, in which case they may actually be some sort of Lovecraftian madness given flesh. Either way, it doesn’t seem like it’s worth the effort. Archie is a pretty easy costume to pull off, all you really need is red hair, a sweater with an R on it, and two girlfriends.

Speaking of…

Option 2: Betty And/Or Veronica

 

 

Okay, I’ll admit that technically, Betty and Veronica are both cheerleaders at Riverdale High, and that RHS’s school colors are, in fact, blue and gold. That’s canon, y’all. What breaks these costumes for me, though, is that while I can definitely see Veronica applying her own logo to her uniform, there’s no way that sweet, sweet Betty Cooper would ever be egotistical enough to do the same on hers.

 

Option 3: Jughead

 

 

Once again, we’ve got a costume that’s pretty easy to cobble together at home, assuming you can write the letter S on a t-shirt and resist the urge to slap it inside a pentagon and go fight Brainiac or something. On the plus side, this one has Jughead’s signature crown — albeit a weird rubber version — but that nose, man. Yikes. Surely there has to be a way to get Jughead’s signature look without that weird mismatched Cyrano effect going on.

Let’s see… ah, here we go.

 

Option 4: Jughead Vinyl Mask
