Halloween 2020: Schitt’s Creek costume and more Emmy-inspired ideas

If you’re wondering what you should wear to your Halloween house party of maximum six people, we’ve got you covered – literally! Apparently, Schitt’s Creek Halloween costumes are in this year. Who would have thought?

2020 has been a great year for Schitt’s Creek, as the show scooped an armful of comedy awards at the Emmys for acting, writing, directing and Outstanding Comedy Series.

And here’s the scoop on the coolest Creek- and Emmy-inspired Halloween costume ideas of 2020.

Some of the best Schitt’s Creek Halloween costume ideas

You can always count on Twitter to document the weird and wonderful. It certainly didn’t disappoint when creating a catalogue of costume ideas. Who knew dressing up as a normal person could be so popular?

The site Alma has created a how-to guide that helps you emulate your favourite characters from the show.


Apparently wearing a white shirt covered with a bin bag is the best way to look like Moira – the once popular Sunrise Bay anchor. Make sure to add some jewellery and a wig to channel your inner Moira.


‘I’m too cool for school’ face. Check. Black-and-white clothes. Check. Sunglasses. Check. You’re all set to fool others into thinking you’re hipster David.

The trend of dressing up in everyday clothing for Halloween appears to have been sparked by the Emmys.

Other Emmy-inspired Halloween outfits

The Marvellous Mrs Maisel

Despite receiving 20 nominations, the show failed to make an impact at the Emmys. If you think the show is still marvellous, make sure to dress up as Mrs Maisel this Halloween.

Mrs Maisel exudes class and elegance, so try to wear a long wool coat. Pink seems to be her favourite colour. High heels are a must as well as perfectly colour co-ordinated accessories.

Rue from Euphoria

Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest ever Emmy award winner for her performance as Rue in Euphoria. The 24-year-old star looks set to be an inspiration for Halloween costumes.

Luckily, Rue’s look is easy to replicate and oh so comfortable. Rue frequently wears leggings, a long-sleeved top and trainers. Minimal make-up leads the way. With skin as flawless as Zendaya, who’d even want to wear make-up?

Carole Baskin

The woman, the myth, the legend – and for some, the villain – that is Carole Baskin surely won’t come out unscathed as a costume idea? Amazon has got you covered on this front. It stocks everything Baskin, from her infamous flower crown to her floral blouse.
