6 Last Minute Halloween Costumes that Double for the Gym

Scare up a costume that kills.

The clock is ticking down to Halloween. Walk right past the chaos and flammable fabrics in that pop-up Halloween store and continue on to City Sports. We’ll help you build an impressive costume from the workout gear you crave. Just in case you need to work off those Kit Kat’s and a few glasses of Bloody Good Halloween Punch.

6 Costumes That Will Get Your Blood Flowing

Forest Nymph

When does a girl not need another pair of capris? Pair the Onzie Twilight Capri with the Oiselle Farrow Tank for a ethereal look that doubles in the studio. Make yourself a floral crown and experiment with rainbow lipstick and you’re ready for a mystical night. Glitter optional.

Health Goth

Latch on to the Health Goth trend this Halloween. Think Wednesday Addams as an avid yogi who drinks cold-pressed beet juice.

The color palate for this costume is easy: black, black, and more black. Start with the Onzie Power Leggings – the mesh cut outs are sick. Grab a simple black tank top and stencil a goth-y staying in white. Adidas Stan Smiths in black and a S’well Blonde Wood Water Bottle are the perfect accessories. Complete your goth aesthetic with makeup inspiration from Instagrammers like Dress Up Box and Creative Boss.

Had your eye on that super-soft Patagonia vest since last winter? Now you have two reasons to add it to your cold-weather wardrobe: a Halloween costume and defense against another Snowmaggedon!

Simply combine the Patagonia Los Gatos Fleece Vest over a long-sleeved shirt. Add the Under Armour Take a Chance Capri and you have yourself a sleek wolf outfit. Dig into your crafty side and whip up a mask using this DIY Wolf Mask tutorial. (Not into DIY? There’s a simple solution on Etsy.)

Death by CrossFit

Combine your love (or dislike) of CrossFit with your love of zombies for this Halloween option. Grab a CrossFit-inspired tee from City Sports, the Under Armour Raid Shorts, and a pair of Reebok CrossFit Nano shoes. A little white face paint and fake blood are all you need to round out that The Walking Dead-meets-your-local-box look.

Dunkin’ Donut

Want to be the hit of the Halloween party? This is the wittiest way to get there. The key piece is the chocolate donut inner tube. Once secured, simply add some Nike Basketball Shorts, a basketball tee or tank, Converse All-Star Hi-Tops, a sweatband, and of course, a basketball.

We recommend a mini basketball so that you can hold a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in the other hand.

Retro Runner

This look can be rocked by any girl or guy. Look to Michael Cera’s character from the movie Juno or old pictures of your parents for inspiration.

Start with cool retro kicks from the Brooks Heritage Collection and printed technical socks from Stance. Add a sweatband or a sleek hat from Ciele Athletics. Now for the outfit: a patriotic tank from City Sports and color-blocked shorts from Nike. You’re ready to run (to that party)!
