This costume is not only recognizable but also a fantastic conversation starter, perfect for sharing your passion for cannabis with fellow Halloween revelers.

3. Edible Costume
Represent the edible side of cannabis by dressing up as your favorite infused treat. Whether you choose to be a giant gummy bear, chocolate bar, or lollipop, make sure your costume is vivid and fun. To add a humorous touch, print out a “THC content” label with outrageous percentages and affix it to your costume. You’ll be a walking, talking, and very edible conversation starter.
4. Willie Nelson
Pay homage to this legendary cannabis enthusiast by embodying the iconic personas of Willie Nelson. Don a wig that replicates his distinctive hairstyle, a wear costumes that captures his unique style, and perhaps carry a prop joint for authenticity.
5. 420 Nurse Costume
Showcase your appreciation for the medical aspect of cannabis by transforming into a 420 nurse. Wear a nurse’s uniform, complete with a white cap and a stethoscope. Customize your uniform with marijuana leaf patterns and a green cross symbol. You can even carry around a first-aid kit filled with faux cannabis products for added authenticity. This costume is both humorous and thought-provoking, making it perfect for sparking conversations about the medicinal uses of cannabis.
6. Pot Head Costume
Elevate your sense of humor with a punny and playful “pot head” costume. Create a headband with a small flower pot or planter attached to it, complete with faux cannabis leaves sprouting out. This literal interpretation of being a “pot head” is not only amusing but also an easy DIY costume that will have everyone laughing.
1. Agent Orange
Agent Orange is a popular hybrid strain, but its sativa genes usually wins out. The high is uplifting, energetic, and creative, with mostly heady effects, while the bud smells of oranges and other citrus fruit.
The costume, naturally, is orange. Bright orange. All orange. All you need to do is find a two-piece orange suit and orange tie. Your shirt needn’t be orange, but it helps. On second thought, these things aren’t terribly easy to find. But you’re industrious and the Internet is always open. Give it a shot!
2. Super Lemon Haze
While not so great for patients who suffer from chronic anxiety, Super Lemon Haze and the high-octane energy boost it provides are great for getting errands done, socializing, or just going for a long, clear-headed walk in the middle of the day.
Make the costume with the following supplies: an orange fitted bodysuit, a cape made from 1-1.5 yards of yellow fabric, and scraps of yellow, orange, and green felt (representing the lemon/citrus aroma and deep-green nugs of Super Lemon Haze).
Affix the cape to the jumpsuit, cut the letters “S,” “L,” and “H” out of each of the felt scraps, and attach them to the front of the bodysuit. Finally, stick a couple green felt marijuana leaves somewhere prominent so nobody gets the wrong idea.
3. White Widow
This all-white DIY costume, geared (mostly) toward women is a bit harder to make, but it’s sure to be a hit. Everyone who has smoked more than half a dozen joints has heard of White Widow, an even hybrid with potent euphoric effects, so they’ll get the gag as soon as they see you light up on the patio during a break from the Halloween party.
Here’s what you do: Take a plain white dress, white fishnet stockings, and white shoes. Make six fake legs out of white cylindrical foam (found at crafts stores) and attach them to the back of the dress. That makes eight total, including your real legs, and as we all remember from high school biology, spiders have eight legs.
White gloves are optional.
There’s a simple way to tackle a costume based on this favorite indica-dominant hybrid: Take a road trip to Wisconsin and buy a Packers/Badgers cheese hat. But what self-respecting pothead would ever choose the easy way out of anything? Uh . . .
So here’s a better, if still pretty simple approach. Buy a full-torso cheese costume online, add some tight black pants, a long-sleeved black shirt, black shoes, and black socks. The combination leaves you looking like, well, a giant slice of cheese. Perfect for a hungry stoner on Halloween.
Remember to be considerate of local laws and the appropriateness of your costume for the event you plan to attend. These costumes are designed to celebrate cannabis culture in a lighthearted and fun manner, without endorsing illegal or irresponsible cannabis use.
