Television and web series get a bad reputation when they are overdone. But taken in the right dosage, they can be the perfect escape from reality. Even better, watch along your family and get some quality bonding thrown in.
When you watch the same characters week after week, you feel like you know them intimately. It can take crafting skill and a trained eye to pick on the nuances of each character. The good thing is once you’ve gotten the outside perfect, the personality comes along with it.
There may be a television or web series that you can’t even imagine would translate into an effective costume. One of the most brilliant ones here is the Seinfeld group. Genius in it’s simplicity and instantly recognizable, this is one idea to keep in your back pocket when you’re stuck for a costume idea.
So as you go to relax with a show at the end of the day (or beginning, we don’t judge), try and walk in the steps of your favorite television and web series character. Then share your homemade costume creations with us here. We can’t wait to see them!

I’m a huge Twilight Zone nerd and so this year, after having chopped off all my hair a month prior, I decided it was due time I gave a Halloween nod to the show’s host, Rod Serling.
