Judge Halloween Costume Ideas
Objection! If you've always wanted to slam a gavel down and hold someone's precious freedom at the mercy of your whims, then you should wear a Judge Halloween costume this year. There are lots of different ways that you can go about this, so let's take a look at a few different ideas:
For a regular modern day judge, wear a long black robe with a suit underneath. Grab a gavel as your only weapon if you can find one. If you want to get really elaborate, you can make a judge's bench out of cardboard and carry it around in front of you. For a cute group costume, you can have one of your friends dress up at the bailiff, another as the plaintiff, and another as the defendant. Construct a complicated story about the case if you want some kind of narrative to tell people about.
These days, the best known judges are the arbitrators that we see on daytime TV in those courtroom shows such as Judge Judy. If you want to be a celebrity judge, you're going to need little more than the long black robe and a gavel in your hand. To specifically embody the character of Judge Judy, you'll need to add a short brown wig, a white frill along the collar of your robe, and an unflappable attitude.
Folks were a lot fancier back in the Victorian era, and this means that you should wear a powdered wig. It's up to you whether you want to literally dust it with powder or not, but at the very least it should be long, curly, and white.
Victorian judge outfits could be more than one color and were a bit more complex than those of modern judges sometimes, but they could also be plain black in many instances, so that's your safest bet.
Are you feeling judgmental this season? Sentence your friends to 20 years to life, with a judge Halloween costume and feel the power.
