Happy Halloween from Smoke Cartel! To quote Bob Marley probably at some point in his life: “Boo!”
There’s plenty to be afraid of this time of year. Ghouls, goblins, not getting any likes on your pumpkin patch Instagram— all terrifying. But just as frightening is the question on everybody’s mind: “What am I going to be for Halloween?”
Have no fear. Every little thing will be alright. Here are 5 ideas for famous stoner costumes that are easy, simple, and effective.
1. MARTHA STEWART
Snitches get stitches. Nobody has ever snitched on Martha Stewart for toking up, but it’s safe to assume she’s had many-a sesh with Snoop Dogg while their muffins were in the oven.
Martha Stewart is a great option, because you can make a convincing costume on the cheap with a few items you probably already have in your own house.
- A baking pan
- Oven mitts
- A “mom” blouse
- Dollar store hand cuffs
- A blonde wig
If you’re a blondie, you can save a couple bucks just using your God-given gift.
Martha Stewart is the DIY queen, so it’s safe to assume she can make a mean gravity bong. But to save yourself time, effort, and plastic, GRAV Labs has a glass one they already put together for you. No Dasani bottles required— this isn’t the homecoming dance.
2. JIMI HENDRIX
The Wind Cries Mary Jane— at least it can this Halloween. The legendary rock artist practically invented psychedelia, but there’s no need to reinvent the wheel for this costume.
You can become Jimi Hendrix faster than you can say “Is this love, or am I high?” All you need is:
- A bandana
- A ‘fro
- Some shades
- A tie-dye shirt
You can even ask your uncle to borrow his guitar. Just make sure you don't break it-- he's divorced, he doesn't have a lot to do.
Jimi would never be caught dead without a joint, but this doesn’t have to be daunting either. Kits like the STR8 Case Roll Kit and the STR8 Case Mini come with everything you need to whip one up while you’re waiting for your Uber.
3. THE DUDE
Next on the list is a costume so easy, you’re probably already wearing it right now.
Jeff Bridge’s character in The Big Lebowski is a classic any stoner will recognize, and is one of the cheapest and easiest ideas out there. All you need to complete the look:
- White T-shirt
- Sandals/flip flops
- Blonde wig
We suggest completing the look with a rasta hand pipe, like the King Snake Sherlock.
4. WILLIE NELSON
Even if you’re not a fan of country music, Willie Nelson is a staple of counter culture, and can make you the life of the party quickly and easily. All you need for a good Willie costume is:
- Cowboy hat
- Blonde wig/braids
Still got that guitar you printed out for your Jimi Hendrix costume last weekend? Dig it out again, everybody at work will love it! Probably!
Willie Nelson is a classic, and old-school pipes make a pair as American as baseball and apple pie. For this look, we recommend the Marley Natural Black Walnut Spoon Pipe— a pipe that’s straight out of the honky tonk.
5. CHEECH AND CHONG
You might need a significant other or close friend for this costume, which is easier said than done, but the famous stoner duo is a fantastic option for a couple’s costume you successfully assemble with a quick trip to the dollar store.
- Red suspenders
- Fake mustache/real mustache
- Black wig
- Tank top
- Blue button up
To complete the look, you can’t go wrong with a Cheech and Chong bong like The Orchid. Straight out of your dad’s attic, this bong screams the good old days (and your dad screams, “It was a different time!”).
You can even get your furry little buddy in on the fun. No, not your boyfriend. Your dog!
We love our pups here at Smoke Cartel, and we didn’t want to leave them out, so we tried some of these ideas on them. The results were… well, a video is worth 1,000 words.
You definitely shouldn’t smoke around your dog, but that doesn’t mean they can’t join in on the fun. Grab them a plush joint toy from our HeadyPet collection— they’ll love it, and you’ll save money on a trip to the emergency vet.
From all of us at Smoke Cartel, we wish you, your dog, and your plug a Happy Halloween.
