Rave on this Halloween as Lubbock’s sweetheart himself. To rock this look you will need is a cardigan or blazer, a bow tie and don’t forget his infamous thick-rimmed glasses! If you want to bring it over-the-top, complete this look with a guitar and a group of friends dressed as The Crickets.
Is there anything cuter or more creative than a string of wine grapes? With five-award winning wineries and 90% of Texas wine grapes grown on the Texas High Plains, a balloon “grape” costume seemed like the perfect option. For this costume, you will need balloons, safety pins, and a green bow. Top it off with your favorite locally-made bottle of wine in hand.
One thing Lubbock is known for is cotton! Lucky for us, Halloween falls right around harvest season. Head out on any farm road in the county to draw inspiration from our local farmers hard at work. What you need for this costume is simple. Grab your overalls, work boots, and a stem of cotton.
Since 1936, The Masked Rider has been the face of all Texas Tech traditions. You can show up wearing this top-notch Lubbock costume draped from head to toe in black. Top it off with a cape and black mask. If you really want to go above and beyond, bring your trusty-sidekick, Fearless Champion, with you as a stick pony.
Rock any of these costumes this Halloween to be a hit with your Lubbock friends. If you are still on the fence about what to wear, put a creative twist on any of the honorable mentions below.
