Need some inspiration for that Halloween party coming up? We’ve put together 12 tea-inspired costume ideas for us tealovers to parade our affinity for tea in the most punny way possible. This is how we do at Sips by HQ - tea puns all day, every day. Most of these costumes can be put together with found objects around the house so they’re perfect for last minute rallies and throwing a quick costume together. We’re so ready for Halloween, it’s unreal.
1. Steeping Beauty
Get it?? Dress as Sleeping Beauty, hold a pot of tea - you're now Steeping Beauty.
2. Fifty Shades of Earl Grey
This is an easy one. Take cut outs of 50 different Earl Grey packages and paste/tape them on a shirt or dress. Maybe carry handcuffs. Costume done.
Dress as a T-Rex, hold a teacup and saucer, and endeavor to drink your tea the entire night.
4. Her Majes-tea
Or Nobili-tea or Royal-tea. Dress as posh as possible (ascot hats are perfect) and add props of a teapot and/or teacup. Any tea, darling?
5. Lady Liber-tea
Dress as Lady Liberty herself, but instead of holding a torch and stone scripture, proudly hold a teapot and cup. Go around serving up liber-tea - the best tasting freedom anyone’s ever had.
6. A Famous Celebri-tea
Dress up as your favorite celebrity or tea brand, drink tea the whole evening. Perfect.
Dress as a ninja with a cup and saucer, tea pot, and/or ninja star made out of teaspoons for weapons. Call yourself Fatali-tea.
Dress how you like, carry a thermos of tea, and serve doses of hones-tea. The whole evening you have to be absolutely honest. No filter. Say what you think. You do you.
9. Tea Sipper
Carry around a bunch of gossip mags along with your favorite tall glass, and spread that dirt!
Dress however you like, introduce yourself as Generosi-tea, and hand out teabags. Spread the love. Sharing is caring.
11. The Mad Hatter
A classic, and fun excuse to go crazy with dramatic makeup and possibly serve up some tea (or tea infused cocktails??) to your party crowd. IN.
12. Anything and Everything Tea
Dress as anything from a tea bag, a cup and saucer, a teapot, tea leaves, the possibili-teas are endless.
