It’s that time of year again. You’ve broken out the sweaters (but kept the shorts as well because Colorado Springs weather can be a little…temperamental) and all of the leaves have changed colors. This can only mean one thing. It’s Halloween time; time for hundreds of children to knock at your door and ask for candy.
If you’re anything like our New Media Intern Seema, then you spend a lot of time thinking about your Halloween costume, but still end up searching through your closet for the perfect costume right up until the day of.
If you’re still trying to figure out a costume, the FAC is here to offer some Halloween-costume inspiration. The FAC Galleries have a large amount of Western, Modern and un-classifiable pieces that can easily be translated into an awesome and original Halloween costume. Below are a few pieces with costume ideas provided by Intern Seema.

Patron Saint of Coffee
As an avid coffee drinker, this piece caught my eye the first time I visited the FAC Galleries, and I was reminded of it again when thinking of Halloween costumes. The best way to make this costume would be to find a monks robe (or wear all brown) and glue a coffee cup to a beaded necklace. Make sure you also have a cup in hand at all times for effect! Coffee is, after all, a beautiful thing.
The perfect group costume as inspired by Kuhn’s oil painting. Have two friends dress in all red. And then dress in white with white face paint. Don’t forget the tights!
There you have it folks! Five interesting and unique Halloween costumes as inspired by works of art in the Fine Arts Center. Happy Halloween, and if you have an FAC or art inspired costume, we’d love to see it!
