Fun Halloween costume ideas for braces

It’s that time of year again! Halloween is just around the corner and we at Becher & Gil Orthodontics are here to get you ready. For those currently in braces, you may be wondering how you can stand out with your costume without letting your orthodontic treatment get in the way. Fear not! Here are five fun costume ideas you can try that make the most of your braces.

Katy Perry from her “Last Friday Night” video

Take a trip back to the ’80s with Katy Perry’s look from her music video, “Last Friday Night.” This video gives two options for costumes: geek or party girl. Both feature braces and lots of colors. Don’t forget the hairspray!

Darla from Finding Nemo

This character from the classic kid’s movie, Finding Nemo, is often what comes to mind when people think of costumes featuring braces. Darla’s enthusiasm for animals (oftentimes too intense) and a full face of metal made her one of the most memorable characters in the movie.

To achieve this look, find a purple sweater, white button-down shirt, plaid skirt, plastic bag filled with water and fish, and, most importantly, add freckles and something that resembles headgear to your face.

Ugly Betty

Similar to Darla, Ugly Betty can also be an easy costume to recreate. Her quirky style can be constructed using a knee-length pattern print skirt, pattern print button-down shirt, sweater vest, stockings (or socks), Mary Jane shoes and glasses (preferably red). If you really want to take it a step further, top the look with a Guadalajara poncho!

Kip from Napoleon Dynamite

While not the main character, Kip Dynamite’s cinema debut captured a cult following that has inspired thousands of Halloween costumes since its release in 2004. To recreate this look, grab a pair of khakis, a polo (preferably light blue), a brown belt, large glasses, and a cardboard sign that says “Lafawnduh.” Top it off with a mustache and, you guessed it, your braces.

Jimmy Fallon and in the “Ew!” Music Video

Comedian Jimmy Fallon and musician channeled their teenage girl alter egos, Sara and in the “Ew!” music video. The great thing about these costumes is that they are perfect for best friends undergoing orthodontic treatment. Check out the video here!
