1. In honor of a deaf character ‘Amaya’ from the TV show “Dragon Prince”, dress up as an anime dragon!
2. In support of #DeafTalent ‘Connie’ portrayed by deaf actress Lauren Ridroff on “The Walking Dead” go as a zombie or one of the survivors from the show.
3. Alert people to breaking news like “Daily Moth” reporter, Alex Abenchuchan! Dress as a reporter or go as the Daily Moth logo!
4. Grab a group of friends and get dressed up in your football gear. Throughout the night circle up in honor of Paul Hubbard’s greatest contribution to football, the huddle.
5. Channel your inner villain by dressing up as Reeva from “The Gifted” played by coda actress Grace Byers. A costume so good you’ll want to scream!
6. Gather some friends together and have each person wear a different color from head to toe. Walk around as a group as Ann Silver’s famous De’Via artwork, “Deaf identity Crayons”!
7. Did you know that a deaf man, Vincent Cerf, helped to create the internet? In honor of him dress up as your favorite website or social media icon.
8. Recreate Debbie Rennie’s iconic ASL poem “Black Hole: Color ASL”! Add colorful splotches of paint to blue clothes and make a small ladder out of cardboard to carry. Encourage people to “soar” in the colorful ASL world!
9. Recruit a buddy- one person dress up as a car and the other a household pet. Individually they look like different costumes but combined you become a Signed Exact English sign for CARPET!
10. Feeling nostalgic? Dress up as Nurse Ratched in the movie “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” played by coda actress Louise Fletcher.
