5. Black Bear

Forum/Amazon

Pay homage to our most recognizable college mascot, the Maine Black Bear! GO UMAINE!

4. Pennywise

Party City/Amazon

You'll float too in this outfit. Ok, maybe not. Please don't jump in any sewers with this one. Pennywise has essentially become Maine's spooky mascot. Bring Derry to your hometown with this get-up.

3. A Haunted Tree

Rubies/Amazon

Sure, the woods are pretty but they can also be a big scary place! Not to mention the forest takes up 90% of the state. You never know what, or who could be lurking up the trail.

2. Lobster

Tipsy Elves/Facebook

Perhaps the scariest part about the traditional lobster costume is that they're red. Real Mainers know that despite what our license plates portray, lobsters aren't red until they're cooked, so if you think about it that way, this lobster costume is actually a zombie lobster. I can see it now, lobster zombies turn and try to boil HUMANS. A story by Stephen King, probably.

1. Tourist

Forum Novelties/Amazon

We ain't called 'Vacationland' for nothin'! Poke some fun at the "flatlanders" by dressing up as someone who wouldn't hesitate to ask where "Say-Co" (Saco) is. These are the types that cause traffic to back up along Route 1 while waiting for a lobster roll.

Deer in Headlights

Rasta Imposta/Amazon

Innuendo aside, seeing an actual deer in the headlights is something all Mainers have experienced and it can be quite scary and dangerous. Stay safe out there and Happy Halloween!
