Boo! Did we scare you?! Well, some of these costumes might! The Denim Therapy team rounded up their favorite Halloween photos from years past, and asked some of our favorite denim brands what their Halloween plans are too. Scroll to check out the hyper-creative, highly amusing round-up of festive fun from your resident denim experts.
Johnny Pinto AKA The Denim Guy
“So this Halloween I am going to be a SEXY BEAR! LOL. Two years ago I was a caveman (pictured below), last year I was BRUNO in Yellow Laderhossen, no pictures of that.”
Lauren and Lea, DL1961 Premium Denim (Left)
Lauren: “I am lucky enough to live in NYC’s West Village, so on Halloween I can literally walk out my door and into the Greenwich Village Halloween parade. The parade has become a tradition every year for me and my friends. Since there are so many costume stores on 6th and 7th Avenues, I might have a different costume for every day of Halloween weekend this year.”

Ron: “This year unfortunately I am in China working so I’m missing being home with my family. It is always a tradition to carve pumpkins and then for me to dress up with my two kids, Olivia and Tristan, my wife, and our dog to go trick or treating around our neighborhood. I think I enjoy it more than my children!”

“We had a pumpkin decorating contest. This is our 1st place winner. Georgia May Jagger-lantern!”
Raffael, DT’s Photographer (left) and Renee, DT Manager of Operations (right)
Raffael: “I was a moustacho-wearing Soviet solider. This year I’m going to be Cheburashka, a Russian stop-motion animation character from 1969.”
Renee: “We were trailer trash (the 5 of us took over the party).”
Michelle Christina, DT Editorial Director
“I was a DIY Bollywood dancer last year, but I made my costume last second and by the middle of the night my denim cut-offs were showing. Oops!”
Sarah, DT Editorial Contributor
“My costume this year is going to be Bedelia Grantham from the 1982 horror flop Creepshow. Costume includes: ratty blonde wig, black sun hat, black cape, black pants, bottle of whiskey, and a dinner length cigarette holder.
My favorite past year’s costume was when my sister and I decided to be topical, and she was Kevin Federline (wearing my dad’s clothes and a goatee drawn on with eyeliner) and I was a smoking, pimpled, and pregnant Britney Spears.”
J. Sandoval, DT Editorial Contributor
“I was a “vampire rocker” (don’t ask). On a cool note I was wearing a white denim vest with an embroidered skull—fancy! This year I’m planning on being a gothic mad hatter.”
DT Editorial Interns Brie (Left), and Elyssa (Right)
Brie: “I just managed to get my hands on an old Halloween pic (Belle), then my (tentative) costume idea for this year is Jane Lane from Daria.”
Elyssa: “I was the Spice Girls with my friends—Ginger Spice!”
Judy Yang, Reco Jeans Intern
“This year, I’ll be dressing up as a princess inspired by SNSD’s new album’s concept as princesses. I’m really excited since I love dressing up!~ Last year I dressed up as Minnie Mouse, which was really fun. I’m also looking forward to everyone’s costumes. Hope everyone will have a fun and safe Halloween!”
Paul Pyo, Doctrine Jeans
” I am planning to dress up as either Bruce Lee in his yellow jumpsuit or as Elf in the Will Ferrell movie. This isn’t a picture of me but it’s a picture of my daughter, Kenzie, and my dog, Lucky, in their panda costumes from last Halloween.”
DT’s founder, Francine, couldn’t find a pic to share, but she’ll be dressing as a cowgirl. Perhaps a post-Halloween post is in order?
Happy Halloween Guys!
