    Pistol Lake's Halloween Inspiration Guide

    Pistol Lake Eudae

    Halloween happens to be a very big deal at Pistol Lake.

    And although we're still working on our first-ever all-Eudae costume, we can still help you out this season! Whether you're looking for last-minute costume inspiration or a snazzy fall-ready style, we threw a list together to prove once and for all that we can complete any outfit. 

    1. Minimalist Baseball Tee
    Perfect For: A Baseball Player Costume, duh.

    Let's not overcomplicate this list to kick things off – if you're looking for a barely-passable costume idea, it's hard to beat The Nondescript Athlete. Throw on a cap, pull on some tight pants, add a Minimalist Baseball Tee and then instantly transform into any Hall of Famer you can dream up.

    You won't win any costume awards, but you'll at least avoid a dirty look from Uncle Steve this year.

    2. Minimalist Pullover Hoodie
    Perfect For: Backyard S'mores

    As the weather continues to cool down, you'll be tempted to start a backyard bonfire and chase away the chills with a s'more (or two or three). That's a heart-warming activity itself, but a Minimalist Pullover Hoodie can bring that whole look together.

    Grahams, marshmallows, chocolate, and our beloved Eclon – what's a more iconic quartet? We'll wait...

    3. Cotton Henley
    Perfect For: Pumpkin Patches and Hayrides

    Heading to a socially-distanced farm outside the city? Boom, we got you covered there, too. The Cotton Henley boasts tons of autumnal colors, but perhaps there's none better than our Burgundy.

    Carving pumpkins and cute first-date tractor rides are no match for an all-time Pistol Lake staple.

    4. Minimalist Boxers 
    Perfect For: Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Dips

    Every year, it's tradition to drive to the nearest ocean or lake and jump in some freezing-cold water after Thanksgiving dinner. If you're wearing our Minimalist Boxers, they won't save you from the icy cold, but at least you'll dry fast!

    5. One-Bag Henley
    Perfect For: That Unnamed But Very Famous Horror Movie Villain Costume

    You know the one we're talking about, right? Think of your favorite franchise, one where there's some creepy ghost/killer/mother/stalker that spends the entire film chasing our innocent main characters, probably has four or five sequels (of varying quality), and some absolutely bonkers twists along the way.

    While we're not about to name-drop here, layering any costume with a One-Bag Henley is totally a winning idea. Say what you will about their flimsy motivations, but most of the iconic monsters and villains pull off undead style with ease!

    6. Stretch Terry Henley
    Perfect For: Skiing, Snowboarding, and Extreme Tubing

    Seriously? It's starting to snow already? From coast-to-coast, that means it's time to start thinking ahead about those long days on the slopes.

    Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with traditional mountain-descending skills – but don't worry, the Stretch Terry Henley is aces for snow tubing too, ignore the haters.

    7. One-Bag Tee
    Perfect For: Rooting On Your Favorite Football Team (From Home)

    Sure, we'd all love to be covered in cheap beer and cheering for touchdowns from the nosebleeds, but that's just not possible right now. However, our Midweight Eudae makes the One-Bag Tee flawless for lazy at-home Sunday afternoon lounging – just don't spill salsa on it!

    8. Minimalist Tank Tops
    Perfect: Ignoring The Seasons; Overusing Heat Lamps

    But maybe you're not ready to accept the weather and impending snow. Maybe you're even one impulsive click from flying far away from the upcoming winter entirely.

    If you're dreaming of spending the next few months on a beach somewhere, all you need is 235 gallons of sand, three space heaters, a kiddie pool, some Minimalist Tanks, and a willingness to make an uncleanable mess in your living room.

    From thrown together Halloween costumes to the frigid ski lift, we've got what you need this fall, winter, and everything beyond. But what do you use your seasonal Pistol Lake gear for?

    Take Less. Do More.

    Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months, you know that a pretty important election is right around the corner. But all the talk about a big country-wide map and the colors they might turn in November got us wondering about our own.
