Halloween is only three-plus weeks away, so if you don’t already have your costume sorted, you’re running perilously short on time. Sure, you could always just grab something off a rack at a costume shop, but where’s the fun in that?
Trying to come up with something creative that’s also distinctly Nashville, and distinctly 2015? We did some thinking, and here are five costume ideas we came up with that fit the bill. Feel free to use them (but forgive us for any unintended eye rolls).
It was not without controversy when the Nashville Sounds introduced their new ballpark with a brand new mascot, Booster the Rooster, effectively putting longtime fan favorite Ozzie out to pasture. You could show Ozzie some love in a few different ways: a cougar costume plus a Sounds jersey plus a single, lonely painted-on tear; a cougar costume plus a Sounds jersey, holding a plush rooster head; a cougar costume plus a Sounds jersey plus a bathrobe and an unemployment-enjoying beer?
The Google Fiber angel
Few things got Nashvillians as excited this year as the news that Google Fiber was bringing superfast Internet to our town. And the generous folks at Google stoked that excitement further by offering Nashvillians a free “Fiber is coming” T-shirt (above). Throw on your Tennessee Google Fiber T, pop an angel halo on your head, and there you are: the long-awaited angel of Gigabit Internet speed and theoretically seamless Netflix binging.
New Tennessee Logo Man (or Woman)
Short of going as big pharma CEO Martin Shkreli, you probably couldn’t pick a costume that represented more vehement dislike than the much-talked-about new Tennessee logo. Most complainers took issue with the very simple design’s price ($46,000, reportedly), and with the idea that it was meant to replace the beloved Tristar (it’s not, really). The good thing: It makes for a pretty easy costume. Slap a white “TN” on a red T-shirt, throw on some blue pants, and brace for impact.

by TJ AndersonI’m intensely excited about our new Inglewood hom
"I have known TJ since 2007, have purchased two homes with him and sold 3 others. He is, without question, the most knowledgable and responsive agent in Nashville (and beyond). My only regret is that I have recently moved out of state and am not able to use him on my next purchase out here. I would do so in a heartbeat if given the chance. I cannot recommend TJ more highly, either personally or professionally."
