Trick or treat? We say treat! Wine is more than just a beverage; it’s a hobby and a lifestyle. If you love wine, you may want to find a costume this Halloween that displays your passion. Check out five costume ideas for wine enthusiasts.
A Wine Snob
This one is a funny take on a common stereotype. It’s also an easy costume to create with items you likely already own. Here are the basics you’ll need to recreate the look:
- A blazer
- A button-down shirt or blouse
- A wine glass (preferably with real wine!)
- An ascot
- Tons of haughty wine retorts, such as “This red has breathy notes,” and “I think the 2008 release had more body than this 2010 batch; what a shame!”
A Bunch of Grapes
One of the cleverest and most fun costumes costume ideas for wine enthusiasts this year is a bunch of grapes. Fun, relatively easy to put together, and sure to be a crowd-pleaser, this costume just might be perfect. Start by acquiring a bunch of purple balloons. Next, fill the balloons with air and adhere them to your clothing, arranging them in a way that resembles a classic bunch of grapes.
For the full effect, wear a purple outfit underneath, and fix a green “stem” hat to complete the look.
Dionysus, the God of Wine
Another great costume idea for wine lovers is Dionysus, the Ancient Roman god of wine. It’s another fairly simple costume to put together, so it’s perfect for a last-minute Halloween costume. Simply wear a large white or black T-shirt—one that could be long enough to be a dress. Then, drape a purple or red sash over yourself, and make a crown of grapes. For added effect, consider carrying around a chalice of wine. (You can likely find chalice-type cups at your local thrift shop!)
Wine and Cheese
For a great wine-loving couple’s costume, consider going as the dynamic duo of wine and cheese. This costume takes a tad more pre-planning than the others, but it’s well worth the effort. Many local Halloween shops may have a wine bottle costume and a cheese wedge costume. To get extra creative with it, consider having “cheese” hold a wine glass and “wine” hold a cheese spreader.
If you love wine, you may also love collecting your discarded wine corks. Ever wonder what use your old corks could possibly have? Well, wonder no more—they’re perfect for a DIY Halloween costume. Simply cut all your discarded corks in half longways and adhere them to an old suit and cane. Suddenly, you are Cork Man!
