10 Badass Athletes and Adventurers to Dress up as for Halloween

Ready to win that contest and wow your friends with these clever costumes? We’ve got you covered.

You’ve done the zombies and vampires thing. A lot. It’s time to step up your costume game and pay homage to some of the world’s record crushing, boundary smashing athletes and outdoor icons.

What better way to honor these bold souls than to dress up in their likes for Halloween!

1. Lindsey Vonn

Let your blonde locks fly wildly behind you (hello, hairspray) from under a Red Bull stocking cap while honoring Vail darling and downhill champion Lindsey Vonn. A skin-tight white ski racing getup and some funky bent racing poles should do just fine. Learn more about Lindsey Vonn here.

2. eVEL KNIEVEL

Do you live life full throttle? Always going big, never going home? All you need is a white caped jumpsuit with red, white and blue stars and stripes, possibly a mini motorcycle to carry around, and you’re America’s favorite high-flying stunt performer and entertainer. Learn more about Evel Knievel here.

3. Melissa Arnot

American mountaineer and guide Melissa Arnot has summited Mount Everest six times and was the first American woman to ascend/descend Everest without oxygen. Don your puffiest parka, ropes and climbing gear, a pack that’s bigger than you and maybe a little fake snow for this one. Learn more about Melissa Arnot here.

4. Alex Honnold

Alex Honnold—you know, the Free Solo guy—is an epic American rock climber best known for his free solo ascents of big walls, most notably Yosemite’s 3,000-foot El Capitan. No ropes or safety gear needed for this costume—just a shirtless sweaty six-pack (if you can pull that off), some climbing shoes and a chalk bag. Learn more about Alex Honnold here.

5. Amelia Earhart

Nab a brown bomber jacket, old-school flight cap and goggles and flash a fearless smile while capturing the essence of the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic. Your Halloween party guests will likely have theories about how you disappeared attempting to circumnavigate the globe in 1937. Learn more about Amelia Earhart here.

6. shaun white

Go pre-clean-cut Shaun with a big curly red wig and three oversized shiny gold medals dangling from your snowboard. Spend the night flinging yourself over furniture, flipping your body into a Double McTwist 1260. Learn more about Shaun White here.

7. JACQUE COUSTEAU

Explore the greatest depths of the sea in your signature red beanie, denim button down, square-framed glasses and wooden pipe. If you want to dive deeper, craft a compressed-air Aqualung—the French naval officer, ocean explorer and filmmaker co-invented the genius diving apparatus. Learn more about Jacque Costeau here.

8. SIMONE BILES

Channel 2021 summer Olympic love dressed as one of the most buzzed about and decorated gymnasts of all time. Wear 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, a simple ribbon bow in your slicked back ponytail and a star-spangled leotard. Bonus points if you have quads of steel. Learn more about Simone Biles here.

9. CANDIDE THOVEX

Badass skier, adventurer, filmmaker and entrepreneur – who also happens to have his own line of skis in partnership with Faction (find Faction skis in Haus Quiver) – Candide Thovex is the industry’s flying Frenchman and the next best thing since the dinner roll. Learn more about Candide Thovex here.

10. JOHN ELWAY

In the Mile High state, this one’s a no-brainer. Just grab your bright orange #7 jersey and a football and grin as wide as you can. Expect a night of high fives and touchdown dances celebrating the legendary quarterback and Denver Broncos GM. Learn more about John Elway here.
