8 Peace Corps Halloween Costumes

One of the best things about still waiting to depart is being home for the holidays, including Halloween.  Here are 8 Halloween costumes that Peace Corps Volunteers and Nominees could relate to.

Ace Ventura – When Nature Calls
Ace Ventura, a detective who specializes in retrieval of tame or captive animals – a bit of a stretch but he certainly ventures across enough countries the Peace Corps has interacted with.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? And Where’s Waldo?

Perfect for the nominee waiting to see what country they will be invited to.

And of course to represent your future country of service, any  TASTEFUL historic or cultural icons.
Think historic revolutionaries, movie characters, folklore.

This one goes out to my Ethiopia Volunteers.
The Queen of Sheba was a monarch of the ancient kingdom of Sheba and is referred to in Yemeni and Ethiopian history, the Bible, the Qur’an, Yoruba customary tradition, and Josephus.

If you can think of any other costume ideas let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear what everyone else is going to be, Peace Corps related or not.
