It’s that time of year again. A time when we search Pinterest for hours (and hours) looking for the perfect Halloween costume, only to don the same pair of cat ears or nerd glasses we always wear.

Well, this year it’s going to be different. This year, we’re going to plan ahead.

That’s why we’ve made a list of Pacific Northwest-inspired Halloween costumes (for you, and for your pets) to help you dress to impress this holiday.

14. I-5 Traffic (group costume)

Have each person in the group dress up as a car. Then randomly stop in the middle of rooms, hallways, and sidewalks to honk at one another. Occasionally meet at a building entrance or doorway and spend at least three minutes waving and telling the other person to go first. If it rains even one drop, start crashing into everyone around you.
