Gordon McKernan

At this point, Gordon deserves an award for his billboards alone, or whoever is on his marketing team does because they always grab our attention when we are sitting in traffic. It would be hilarious to dress up as one of his famous billboards.

  • Avacado costume
  • Poster board- cut holes and tie string through them so you can wear it around your neck
  • Hair gel-Gordon never has a hair out of place

Sharron Moss

At Moss, You're the Boss! Sharon Moss is a Lafayette fashion icon. She is always dressed to the nines. Dressing up as Sharon would be the perfect excuse to get all dolled up for Halloween.

  • Your Best Dress
  • High Heels
  • Sparkly Earrings- the more glam the better
  • Black short wig

Rob Perillo

The man Acadiana trusts more than anyone else during hurricane season. Rob has an especially good sense of humor and we think he would be up for the challenge of 'Who wore it better?'.

  • Force your date to dress as a weather map
  • Bald cap, unless you are already blessed in this department
  • Suit and tie
  • Glasses

Gerald Gruenig

Yeah, Baby! Gerald is easily one of the most loved locals in the community. Our only gripe is, that he is always making us hungry.

  • White T-shirt- Write "Yeah, Baby!" on it
  • Sunglasses
  • Baseball hat
  • Fake Beard
  • Carry a box of canes as your prop

The man who needs no introduction is Wayne Toups. Chances are someone in your family or maybe your neighbor down the road has an old according lying around that is essential for really selling this one.

  • Straw Hat
  • Colorful button down
  • Fake Grey Beard
  • Carry around an accordion- OK fine, we realize that might get old quickly. Print out a photo of one and carry it or tape it to your shirt.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
