Halloween Costume Ideas - Bedsheet Cobra Commander

Like GI Joe? Love the idea of going as an iconic character from this classic 80s cartoon? Want to put as little effort into it as possible and still be able to walk away saying "That'll do" and look like a 3 year old drew your costume? Then I have just the costume for you!

This P.O.S. gem can be found at for a surprisingly expensive $9.99 (originally $60.00). Its as if someone saw a picture of Cobra Commander about 15 years ago, and then made the costume from memory in 20 minutes from materials only found at a MC Hammer yard sale, then put belts on in random spots. Personally, I love the choice not to wear shoes with this, as well as that his right leg is not as billowy as the left due to a pair of matching belts. The pillowcase hood is pretty choice too.

  1. The main Halloween tradition in Australia is pretty much 'don't answer the door for the whole night', but if a kid came up wearing that I'd probably give him a Tim Tam or something. But just one.

  2. That's pretty much the same tradition here in the USA, or at least in NJ. But we only get about 3 kids each year at our house.

  3. This will be the first time in I don't know how many years that I'll actually be around for halloween, but we have trick or treating on every night of the week except for Halloween, which makes little sense to me.
