Cryptozoology Costume Craze!
Cryptozoology is defined as the study of creatures that are believed to exist although no real proof can confirm their existence. Having provided a basis for many ancient fairy tales as well as modern, urban legends, the field of cryptozoology also provides a wealth of choices for costumes.
Stuck for a fun couples costume idea? Coordinate matching, mythical costumes or have one go as an archaelogist or hunter and the other as a fantastical beast.
Representing land and sea, the possibilities for costumes are endless. There’s “El Chupacabra” with roots in Mexico and the North American Sasquatch or his colder-climate Tibetan counterpart, the Yeti or the Abominable Snowman.
Take charge of the depths of the sea as either a Dragon, a Sea Serpent, or the friendly Loch Ness Monster of Scotland. For a less monster-themed crypto-costume, there’s always the more widely recognized Mermaid
Going a bit further back into ancient mythology, there are a few cool, cryptozoological choices. Woodland creatures like the Unicorn and Centaur make for some unexpected choices, while a one-eyed Cyclops goes for more of a fearsome, creepy touch.
