There are lots of cool Coca Cola costumes to choose from so whether you enjoy the refreshing taste of coke or not you’ll find a range of cool Halloween costume ideas for you to choose from here.
It’s hard to know where to start as this drink is a pop culture icon in it’s own right so as a costume you know it’s going to be a winner! The first coke costume I saw was the coca cola can costume, then I saw a tank dress costume. The following year I came across the coca cola bottle costume and this year I’ve ‘discovered’ another new (to me) coke costume – the coca cola vending machine costume.
Let’s have a look at some of the great coca cola costumes available….
Coca-Cola Vending Machine Costume
I love this vending machine costume and it’s my daughters favorite coca-cola costume ….. or at least it was yesterday! I must admit I don’t like wearing slinky costumes a lot of the time so this seems ideal to me. It is usually shown with a male model in it, but I think it’s definitely more of a unisex costume idea don’t you?
NO LONGER AVAILABLE! I’m heartbroken that the coke vending machine costume is no longer available to purchase commercially – I’ve looked everywhere I can think of even ebay and I can’t find it anymore. I still think it’s a great idea for a costume however so why not make it yourself?
A large cardboard box could be the ‘vending machine’ you’ll just have to provide some artwork yourself (or print images of the label off to use as the buttons). You could either have your head out the top of the box or add eyes on the front of the vending machine – personally I would have my head poking out the top like I have done for a rubik’s cube costume.
Coca Cola Can Costumes
Now I personally don’t drink diet coke, I like the real thing, but just in case you do I’ve got both coca cola can costumes available for you. If I do go for this costume you can be sure I’ll be in the good old red and white!
Now I don’t know about you, but I actually think that coke tastes better out of a can, it seems to have a more consistent flavor which is why this costume was always my favorite….until I saw the vending machine one and now I’m torn.
Coca Cola Bottle Costume
Another classic coke costume, this one really embraces the ‘coke side of life’.
Coca Cola Cup Costume
To round up the classic coca cola costumes I just had to include the coca cola cup costume, although I could only find the diet coke cup costume this year so I guess some of the cola costumes must be on a diet!
Which of these classic coke costumes do you prefer?

Other Ways to Celebrate ‘The Real Thing’ in Costume
Now that I’ve included the classic ready to wear coca cola costumes let’s look at some other ways you can celebrate your love of coke on Halloween or for some other fancy dress event. One of the reasons that coca cola is considered a pop icon in it’s own right is because of how long it’s had a prominent role in our society. Since the late 1800s we’ve been enjoying this sweet, fizzy beverage.
You can see a range of coca cola posters and tin signs showing advertising from the Victorian era (as pictured) to now.
Now wearing a red Victorian outfit like the model has donned above probably doesn’t say coca-cola costume to you, but what about making your own costume using a late Victorian or Edwardian dress pattern and emulating them on some of the ‘historical themed’ coca-cola Barbies that you can get. Make sure you have a coke bottle with a straw as an accessory and you’re good to go.
If that doesn’t appeal to you then what about a more retro coca cola costume idea? Soda jerks and soda girls are usually thought of in fifties fashions which is why you can find these cool ready to wear coca cola costumes –
Of course there’s always another outside the box coca-cola costume idea which I absolutely love….
Coca Cola Polar Bear Costume
Wouldn’t this be an awesome costume idea? Now there’s no official coca cola polar bear costume that I can find, but I think you simply need to get yourself a polar bear costume and customize it yourself –
Now pop over to Amazon (or try one of your local stores) and get some coca cola stickers, there’s a coca-cola decal sticker sheet which looks ideal. I have a few coca-cola polar bears (the soft toy variety not the real thing!) and most of them have the coke sign on a paw. A couple have the sign on their ear, it is also featured on the chest. So pop on your polar bear costume and stick some coke stickers on you, carry a can or bottle of coke and you have a unique coca cola costume!
