10 easy and inexpensive Halloween costumes you can buy in the MeTV store right now

Grab a classic TV costume T-shirt!

Oh, how we love Halloween! What better excuse to pretend to be someone else and eat a bunch of candy?

The hardest part about Halloween is brainstorming a costume. Well, think no more! We're here to make your costume quick and easy.

Our MeTV Store features a collection of costume shirts. Why wear a bulky costume when you can wear a single T-shirt (short- or long-sleeved)? Full artwork covers the front (and sometimes back) of these costume shirts. Slip one on and you're suddenly a TV star!

Our collection features a full array of classic TV characters, '70s pop-culture figures and superheroes. Here are some of our — and customers' — favorites.

Get one before it's too late!

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 PM & 8:30 PM

*available in most MeTV markets

1. The Andy Griffith Show

Nip it in the bud! And by "it" we mean "your costume." Saunter around like the Sheriff of Mayberry in this Andy Taylor top. There's a short-sleeved version, too.


2. Svengoolie

What is Halloween without the ultimate horror host! This riff on the classic tuxedo tee features all the little Svengoolie costume details, from his rubber-chicken chain to his lapel pin.


3. Hawkeye from M*A*S*H

Add a surgical mask and you're good to go. Maybe add a martini glass. And, if anyone doesn't get your costume, perhaps throw in a visual pun like a University of Iowa hat. The Hawkeyes — get it?


4. Redshirt from Star Trek

Yes, it is technically an "Engineering" uniform from Starfleet, but we all know that Redshirts die first. That's why they pair so well with zombie makeup. We also offer a long-sleeved version and men's cut, too.


5. Laverne from Laverne & Shirley

Mix up a pitcher of Pepsi milk and skip down the street singing, "Schlemiel, schlimazel…" (NOTE: Skipping while carrying an open pitcher of cola can lead to extensive costume stains. MeTV does not condone this behavior.)


6. Chocolate factory uniform from I Love Lucy

Shove fistfuls of chocolate candies into your mouth and declare, "HISSIS PAWAH MA CAWSTOO." Then chew, swallow and explain, "This is part of my costume." (Note: MeTV does not condone the unsafe shoving of chocolates or other confectionery goods. Please consume candy products carefully.)


7. Mister Rogers

Heading to a neighborhood party? Dress as the friendliest neighbor! Fred Rogers is once again all the rage, what with a new Tom Hanks biopic in theaters. Throw on your best slacks and away you go, neighbor!


8. The Riddler from Batman

With that big question mark on your chest, you can go around asking people TV trivia, like, "Which actor was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on Batman?" The answer, of course, is Frank Gorshin!


9. Starchild from KISS

Our KISS episode of Collector's Call was a fan-favorite. Pretend you're rocking the Paul Lynde Halloween Special in 1976.


10. Leisure Suit from Saturday Night Fever

Yes, we have two T-shirts featuring artificial chest hair! It was the Seventies, after all. Party like its 1977 and point your finger to the sky.

My favorite shirt is "I Love Lucy" I think I watch each program she made at least 10 times. No, my hair may not be red and I hope I don't get in trouble as much she did with her husband...LOL But Holloween should be a real fun time I use to wonder how did it start? Then I found his book and was surprised at its origin. "The True Meaning of Halloween" http://bit.ly/2gm0Ady. Please let make this Holloween safe and for all to enjoy. I am a teacher and someone at my school recommends these resources to help our classes to have a good time this year!!

As Ralphie might say, this article is just a crummy commercial.

None of them appeal to me except maybe Hawkeye and The Riddler.

Not bad. What parent wouldn't love a cool costume on the cheap?

#9 Gives me the creeps.
Why? I remember seeing elaborate Kiss costumes back in fourth grade.
Kind of looks like a pelt wearing a shirt.
I guess that's true. Doesn't say much for METV's respect for Kiss.
I have The Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976.

Easiest and least expensive Halloween costume? Take a "Hello, my name is" tag, write "GOD" on it, slap it to your chest, BOOM, Halloween costume. Worked beautifully for Seth Green's Oz in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode. https://twitter.com/the_spacewitch/status/658535248972529664

You may be labeled a nut, but tape a dollar to your loafer and go as a cash-shoe.
