We Want To See Your Jim Harbaugh Halloween Costumes, Khakis And All

In any given year, you can put on a pair of bunny ears or a cowboy hat and call it a day for Halloween. However, this #SpookySZN is different. In addition to there being two Halloweekends this year, one of them coincides with Penn State’s game against Michigan, meaning the possibilities for football-inspired costumes are endless.  

With so many opportunities to dress up, you might need some inspiration of what you should wear, and what better way to celebrate Halloween than by trolling the Wolverines and their booger-picking, chicken-fearing, and khaki-wearing head coach?

Whether you choose to celebrate this weekend, on actual Halloween, next weekend, or on all three occasions (we won’t judge if you don’t judge), we want to see your best Jim Harbaugh costumes.

So hang a pen and whistle around your neck, take a trip up to Walmart to pick up a new pair of everyone’s favorite pleated khakis, and send pictures of your Harbaughween costumes to [email protected].

To get the creative juices flowing, here are some suggestions of how you can pull off the iconic look of the Big Ten’s most idiosyncratic third-place finisher.

The Classic

Accessories needed: Khakis, Jordan-licensed Michigan apparel, expressions of raw emotion and rage

If that shirt isn’t tucked in, you’re doing it wrong.

Accessories needed: Khakis, dad bod, big Jim energy

There really is no excuse for not having enough time to throw a costume together when truly all you need is a pair of khakis and the shamelessness to go shirtless for an evening.

Accessories needed: tan suit, look of perpetual confusion

Accessories needed: Michigan onesie

If khakis aren’t your vibe, fear not. There are still plenty of variations of the Harbaugh look. Lucky for you, Harbaugh is s crazy enough recruiter that he created an excuse for you to wear pajamas to a Halloween party.
