13 Halloween Costumes to Rock Your Bald Dome in 2020

by Ben Clements . October 30, 2020

Halloween 2020, like most of this year, is going to be a little different. We probably won't have huge Halloween parties to attend, and trick-or-treating will be adapted where it happens at all. It’s been an emotional year, and we all deserve to partake in the most normalized absurdity of modern culture: the Halloween costume.

This year, more than ever, we need Halloween. Laughter, imagination, and community comradery will lift our spirits and remind us that we're all in this together.

So! Whether you plan to enjoy a quiet evening at home, a night of adapted trick-or-treating, or fun with friends, an epic costume is an absolute must this year.

We've scoured pop culture to pick out our favorite bald Halloween costumes. Pick a winner, or come up with your own! 

If you do rock a baldy costume, make sure you tag on us Facebook or Instagram with @cranium.care and use #ownyourdome. Without further ado, let's check out some costumes. 

Drax the Destroyer

What you need:
  • Red body paint
  • Blue jeans
  • Black combat boots
  • Two long prop daggers (optional)
  • Drax is one of the heroes of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. His intimidating appearance is contrasted by his warm and cuddly heart. The Destroyer is the ultimate costume for anyone who loves the shirtless look and has a solid scowl.

    Thanos

    What you need:

    This costume is perfect for anyone who wants to wear a suit and appreciates Tom Hanks' amazing career

    Professor X

  • White face paint for your eyebrows
  • The friendly face of the Procter & Gamble brand Mr. Clean is a quick and easy costume for any baldy. His friendly smile and iconic crossed-arms are easy to emulate, and it’ll take you less than 10 minutes to get ready. 

    Evey Hammond

    What you’ll need:

  • Orange dress
  • This star of the 2005 film V for Vendetta is bold and courageous. Evey is an impoverished woman who is taken in by a man in his Guy Fawks mask and black robes, who goes by V. 

    Her plain orange dress makes for a simple Halloween costume, and her no-quit attitude is admirable. 

    G.I. Jane

    g.i.jane

    What you’ll need:

  • Brown t-shirt
  • Dark pants
  • Dog tags
  • This relentless female protagonist from the 1997 film “G.I. Jane” is tough as nails. She’s the first woman to take on the US Navy's elite SEAL selection program. Everyone expects her to fail, but her unwavering determination blows them away. 

    This is the perfect costume for any bad-ass female baldy. 

    Okoye

    Okoye

    What you’ll need: 

    • Red dress
    • Gold necklace

    • Hoop earrings
    • Metal spear (optional)

    Rolling right along with another bad-ass female, we have Okoye of the Black Panther franchise. She is the general of the Dora Milaje warriors and head of the Wakandan armed forces. We actually featured her on last year's baldy Halloween roundup, but that was her battle attire. While that’s still an excellent option, this formal alternative is stunning. 

    Okoye is a strong leader and fearless fighter, and is the perfect costume for any empowered baldy. 

    Christie Valdeserri

Her courage and self-love are an inspiration for all of us. You can find her on Instagram @christie.valdiserri

    This is the perfect costume for any confident female who lives somewhere warm (or will be staying indoors).
