Nerdy Halloween Costume Ideas

October 17, 2012

Halloween can be a really fun night, if you do it right. If you are like me, you are a bit of a nerd and tend to obsess over making the perfect costume. Last year, the B Man and I were in New York for Halloween so we didn’t celebrate, at work or anywhere else. This year for work, the Marketing team is collaborating on a secret department-wide costume. I can’t wait to post pictures.

If you like Star Trek, Doctor Who, Totorro, all things “nerd”…then check out these ideas:

Chris Hardwick

Chris Hardwick has to be one of my favorite comedians, and of course, NERDS! He wrote the book, The Nerdist Way, and is straight up awesome. If you listen to his podcast, watch him on Talking Dead, or just like his style, consider being him for Halloween! I know if I were a dude, I totes would! **Note: Don’t forget to bring burritos to hand out to everyone.**


DIY Catwoman Costume

Does it get any hotter than tight pleather? Catwoman is all the rage this year with The Dark Knight Rises being such a hit. But she is so much more than a hip hollywood movie. Her love/hate relationship with Batman has produced many great stories. She is so badass that any lady who wants to be considered nerdy should dress as her this year.

Katniss Everdeen

Costume Idea: Katniss Everdeen

I am still obsessed with these books and any obsession = nerd! Katniss is a truly brave girl who even in a time of grave danger always thrives. To completely embody Katniss, you must be quite, collected, and yell “I VOLUNTEER” all Halloween. I don’t make the rules.

9th Doctor

I really only know one Doctor and so far, I love him. If you are already a whovian, consider halloween this year as the ninth doctor! If you have never seen Dr. Who before, it’s time. Turn on Netflix, grab some popcorn, and press play. Then you’ll want to be the doctor!

Star Trek

Star Trek

I love Star Trek, and while I am more of a Next Generation girl, I love the outfits of the early 60’s! This DIY outfit would be perfect for someone on a budget.


What is your idea of the perfect nerdy costume?
