Chances are you’ve heard of a little show called Hamilton. Nevermind the second mortgage you had to take out on your home to see this ground breaking musical that’s sweeping the nation, but think of the buzz you’ll create when you show up to the Halloween party rocking your new-age Founding Father’s get-up. If you’re looking for a click, BOOM costume this season, pull the trigger on Hamilton and step into the room where it happens.

2. You can legitimately rock a sexy outfit on Halloween without looking like the illegitimate sexy costumes out there.

Yeah, yeah… Being scantily clad on Halloween has become a prerequisite over the years, we get it. But, you don’t have to succumb to the blatantly obvious “bad” sexy costumes out there; Hear that, skimpy Ninja Turtle! Go on… step into the world of Cabaret and bowle them over looking perfectly marvelous, risqué and sleek. For even more cred, replace those uncomfortable stilettos with a pair of character shoes.

3. It’s Kid Friendly

This ain’t Hair, but a whole new world has landed on broadway and family friendly shows have become hugely popular – think Harry Potter, Frozen and Sponge Bob. So, if you’re in the mood for a little PG fun this Halloween, unleash your inner child and take a magic carpet ride to your next festive event.

4. You Can’t Go Wrong as The Phantom

You just can’t. Everybody loves a debonair man in a mask (just ask Zorro), and the Phantom is no exception. From instant recognition to potential adoration from surrounding Phanatics, you can’t go wrong dressed as the preeminent, villainous tragi-hero. So, button up that crisp white dress shirt, tucked neatly inside a pair of pressed black trousers and throw on a dramatic, sweeping cape. Before making an overture, stop and check yourself in the mirror and do your best, I’m too mysterious for myself look.

5. If the Costume Bombs, You Can Sing Your Way Through It.

You decide to go last minute, low-budget and it’s not exactly a hit. You’ll have five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes to belt out Seasons of Love instead. So, if you can’t afford Rent or a decent costume this Halloween, no one will care so long as you croon like an original cast member.

6. You Can Go as an Ensemble
