The Official Table Tennis Nation Halloween Costume Guide 2014

Posted on by TableTennisNation

Trick or treat! It’s time for the annual Table Tennis Nation Halloween guide (and 2014’s is THE BIGGEST EDITION EVER).

Like all holidays (and just days), Halloween is better with table tennis and while you can decorate with ping pong and party with ping pong, nothing is a better way to show your love for Halloween than with a great table tennis costume.

Below are 2014’s BEST table tennis costumes, but if you’re interested in a throwback (some of which are relevant still) you can check out past guides to dress as Prince, Jimmy Fallon, Bruce Jenner, Lena Dunham, Serena Williams, Troy Polamalulu, Kate Upton, Justin Bieber, Forest Gump, Susan Sarandon, Marty Reisman, and more (2011, 2012, 2013).

Option 9: Paddle Masks
Use PaddleYou to design any mask you can dream of. Take your costume to the next level by actually looking like who you’re dressing as. Give it a shot and throw your best selfie (or favorite celeb headshot) on a paddle right here:

Option 10: LAST SECOND
You’re totally out of time so you can either stick ping pong balls in your eyes and look like you have googly eyes, cover yourself in ping pong balls and be a piece of popcorn, design hundreds of little ping pong ball monsters and claim you’re doing the Monster Mash (or you’re Lady Gaga) or just get a giant white or yellow circle and claim to BE a ping pong ball. JUST USE PING PONG.

We’re sure you’ll have a great Halloween. Share your best ping pong Halloween costumes with us on facebook, twitter, and instagram and we’ll show them to the table tennis world.
