“Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat.”

Halloween is just around the corner and we at FloorPlay Socks love dressing up our feet for the occasion. Socks are a great way to create a unique costume that will stand out amongst the crowd. If you are unsure what to dress up as, dress your feet! 

5 Halloween Costumes to Knock Your Socks Off

With the right pair of socks any costume idea is possible. Socks are an excellent starting point to plan a halloween costume. We have invented a few of our own halloween costume ideas, ALL centered around "socks". Check out our collection of Halloween themed socks. 

Star Wars

Keep calm and join the force! If you are thinking of recreating your favourite Star Wars character we have what you need. With a simple toga and broom stick you can play the Rey. If Rey is not ht look you are going for you can always play her trusty sidekick BB8. Check out whole Star Wars Stance Collection to find something else that is perfect for you. 

"May The Force Be With You!" 

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

If you spent your days "chillin, out maxin relaxin all cool", then we have the perfect halloween costumer idea for you. Even if you weren't born and raised in west Philadelphia, why not take it back to the 90's with the classic character "Will" from the Fresh Prince TV show. He always had the freshest style and stuck out in a crowd at the annual Fresh Prince themed party, find all the details on BlogTO. With a pair of high top shoes, a snazzy dress shirt, and funky socks, you are sure to be the freshest prince at your halloween party. Check out other funky designs called New Jack and Major for styles you can rock after halloween. 

"Yo home, smell ya later." 

Frida Kahlo

If you like to take selfies, then this halloween costume idea is perfect for you. Dress up as the great Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. She was a famous self portrait artist with a very distinguished look (ie. her unibrow). With a stylish dress, painted on unibrow, and Frida socks to complete the look, everyone will want to take a selfie with you. If you are looking for something different we also have a very unique pair of knee high socks featuring her portrait. 

"I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."

 

Hip Hop Legends

East coast vs. West coast- it doesn't matter whose side you are on, we have styles for everyone. If you're looking for a quick and simple halloween costume idea, why not dress up as your favourite hip-pop icon. Drop your jeans a little low, wear a white t-shirt, throw on a fitted hat, and complete the look with a pair of socks featuring your favourite hip hop artist so everyone will know who you are. This awesome pair of socks featuring Tupac, even has their own bandana. If Tupac isn't your style and you prefer a more lyrical artist , we have a clean pair of MF Doom socks. Tupac once said that "Reality is wrong, dream's are real" so why not dream a little and pretend to be your favourite hip hop artist. 

"It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine" 

Justin Trudeau

Heavy into politics? Why not dress up as the most popular politician right now? No, we're not talking about Donald Trump, but Canada's very own Justin Trudeau. Often photographed wearing some of the coolest socks, he was featured by GQ for his extensive sock game.  We at FloorPlay Socks love following his collection. Throw on a suit and a fancy pair of socks and you can dress as the Canadian Prime Minister this halloween. One of the most recent socks he wore was a pair of Chewbacca socks. If those aren't for you check out these great Canadian themed socks from Outland Socks.  

"Canadian's are nice and polite, its not just a stereotype."

Silver nanoparticles kill off harmful bacteria that can be found in socks. The silver helps keep socks odourless while at the same time prevent and aid with dermal infections and eczemas. 

Instance has a new collection with this nanotechnology, a collection which consists of Japanese silks, cashmere, and yarns that are interwoven to create an uncommon colour effect that is beautiful, comfortable and unique. Spun by a double cylinder, the Arica is one of our softest knits.

At Floorplay we carry socks made from a variety of fibres. Read this information page to find out the right kind of sock for you!

Cotton: This classic sock material is a soft fibre with a high amount of breathability. At Floorplay we have a variety of cotton yarn. Combed cotton means that the yarn is put through multiple finishing processes to remove impurities which makes the fabric softer to the touch. Mercerized cotton yarn is put through even more finishing processes so the colours stay bright.

Bamboo: Bamboo is a natural fibre that is softer and stronger than cotton. It makes great socks because it is quick to absorb moisture – this makes sure your feet stay blister free and don’t get smelly. Plus they feel like silk so you feel like you are walking on clouds.

Wool: Wool socks are reliably warm and keeps your feet dry. This fibre makes the perfect winter sock because wool can wick away up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture! At Floorplay we also have products made from merino wool. Merino wool takes all the great insulating qualities of regular wool, but due to its extremely fine fibres it becomes softer than regular wool.

Polyester: This fibre allows for more details and vivid colours in the design while remaining durable. Since polyester has a high elasticity, socks made from this fibre will retain their shape well. Provides a snug fit while absorbing moisture.
