15 Best Hamilton Costumes for Halloween

Whether you jumped on the Hamilton bandwagon years ago or just recently joined the Ham Fam when the hit Broadway musical dropped on Disney+ earlier this year, by now you know what all the fuss is about. Maybe you’ve spent all of quarantine memorizing the lyrics to “Guns and Ships.” Maybe you’ve read every possible theory explaining why Eliza Hamilton gasps at the end of the show. Or maybe you’ve just been counting down the minutes until October arrives so that you can rock a Halloween costume inspired by the Tony award-winning cast’s inspired colonial-era costumes.

Whether you’re thinking about a group costume dressing up in the Schuyler sisters’ iconic ballgowns or you’re more into the idea your kid donning King George’s red robes and crown, there are enough characters for everyone in your family to pick their favorite. (Your dog can even get in on the action in a pet-friendly costume starring Alexander Hamilton’s blue jacket.)

From Maria Reynolds’s flame-colored dress to George Washington’s Revolutionary War uniform, there are so many ways to show off your obsession with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop musical this Halloween. You can buy a costume from a number of talented Etsy creators or — if you waited until the last-minute — on Amazon. If you’re handy with a sewing needle, DIY a costume with leftover fabric, and scour your local antique mall for authentic props. However you choose to pay homage to the musical starring the Founding Father and his crew on October 31, rest assured you won’t be throwing away your shot at Halloween fun.
