Here are 7 Toronto-themed costumes so you can get creative this Halloween and make your spooky look a memorable one.
A trash panda and its natural habitat
This costume is perfect for a couple or two friends. One person dresses as a raccoon and the other dresses as a Toronto garbage bin. As for who gets stuck with the trash costume, a round of Rock Paper Scissors will make it fair and square.
The Toronto sign
You’ll need six friends to join you for this easy last-minute costume of the Toronto sign in Nathan Phillips Square. All you need is some neon construction paper to cut out the letters. As for your outfits, you can keep it simple with head-to-toe black to make the letters stand out.
Drake and Rihanna in the “Work” music video

Toronto Raptors or Maple Leafs players
Here’s an easy one! You don’t even need to go to a costume store for this outfit. Your nearest sports apparel store should have exactly what you need. Now that both teams are back for the season, you can also use this as an excuse to go to a game. It’s a win-win!
TTC bus and driver
There are some seriously creative TTC costumes on the internet, so feel free to use them for inspo. You can also play up the humour by adding “Sorry, not in service.” Real Toronto locals will know that missing your bus on a cold night is worse than any haunted house.
