Picking a Halloween costume is hard. There are dozens of options, varying from the cool to the stupid, and if you happen to be a woman those options are much flimsier and “sexier” versions of the male ones. It’s stressful! So we decided to ask Twitter what they would do as a spooky Detroit Tigers costume this year, and the results were so much better than we could have anticipated.
And no, sexy Jose Valverde was not mentioned.
This one is timely, and definitely scary.

There were some themes we noticed:

And maybe two minds thinking a little TOO alike:
Go with a Tigers cap, arm in a sling, and a Rock Band guitar. Instant Joel Zumaya. https://t.co/4uEtWX0n3V— Ashley MacLennan (@90feetfromhome) October 31, 2017

Seriously, Eric, stop stealing my great ideas. Geez.

Some people told us about costumes of years past.
