It’s almost October 31 and you still don’t have a costume? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Why not go as your favourite Canadian tennis star? Here are five costume ideas to make your Halloween game, set and match!
Leylah Annie Fernandez
A bottle of Gatorade, a Subway sandwich and some lululemon gear is all you need to go as Leylah Annie Fernandez. As a bonus, try saying “Subway, eat fresh!” and feel like you’re in her TV ad.
Step 1: grab a cap and wear it backwards, as tight as you possibly can so the tab sticks out. Step 2: grab a racquet and bounce a tennis ball between your legs.
That’s Denis down to a T.
If Félix wasn’t a tennis player, he’d be a pianist. This Halloween, surprise your friends by dressing up like him that time he met Alexandra Stréliski: black shirt, black pants, black watch and white shoes. And don’t forget your portable keyboard!
Our suggestion for a family of four or less? The Andreescus, of course! You’ll need a shirt or polo for dad Nicu, a gorgeous long dark wig for mom Maria and some tennis clothes for daughter Bianca. And don’t forget the star of the family: Coco the toy poodle!
Team Canada presented by Sobeys
Have you and your tennis fan friends been trying to get a Halloween theme going? Here’s our suggestion: put on your red tennis shirts and add the word Canada on the back. To nail the Billie Jean King Cup look just like Leylah Annie Fernandez, Bianca Andreescu, Rebecca Marino, Gabriela Dabrowski and Carol Zhao, or the Davis Cup look sported by Félix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Vasek Pospisil, Alexis Galarneau and Gabriel Diallo in November 2022, add the Sobeys logo. Do you think you can match captain (and super fan!) Frank Dancevic‘s energy?
