Dressing the Part: October’s Ultimate Escape Room Adventure

As October rolls around, bringing with it a crisp chill in the air, out of town guests for Balloon Fiesta and the promise of spooky delights, there's no better time to dive headfirst into the narratives of the New Mexico Escape Room. Our immersive puzzles are designed to transform you and teammates into detectives, duelers, tomb robbers, criminal syndicate masterminds, haunted manor explorers, or trusty sidekicks aiding a superhero. But what if we told you that you could take your adventure to the next level by dressing the part? This October, we suggest adding a touch of theatrical flair to your escape room experience with carefully curated costume ideas, ranging from accessories to full ensembles. Not only will these costumes enhance your escape room adventure but they’ll also infuse it with an extra dose of October magic.

The Cabin 2.0

  • Big Costume Idea: Dress up as a classic detective with a long trench coat, fedora hat, and a magnifying glass.
  • Small Costume Idea: Keep it subtle yet official with a police badge pinned to your lapel.

Blackwell Manor

  • Big Costume Idea: Embrace the spookiness with a Victorian-era gown or suit.
  • Small Costume Idea: A pendant or locket containing a ghostly image can be a subtle but eerie accessory.

Duel at Dusk

  • Big Costume Idea: Go all out with a cowboy outfit, complete with rugged boots, an iconic Stetson hat and a bandana.
  • Small Costume Idea: Achieve the rugged wild west look effortlessly with a simple bandana tied around your neck.

Nefertari's Tomb

  • Big Costume Idea: Channel your inner Indiana Jones with a leather jacket, a wide-brimmed hat, and a toy whip that’s perfect for tomb-exploring adventures.
  • Small Costume Idea: Wear an Egyptian-themed pendant or a scarab beetle accessory.

Super Secret

  • Big Costume Idea: Team up as the superhero's sidekicks with matching costumes or opt for a themed t-shirt, a cape, and a mysterious mask.
  • Small Costume Idea: Display your allegiance proudly with a badge or insignia representing your superhero alliance.


  • Big Costume Idea: Transform into a mafia boss with a sharp pinstripe suit, a cigar, and a toy Tommy gun that exudes an air of authority.
  • Small Costume Idea: Keep it incognito with a simple fake mustache and a deck of playing cards tucked in your pocket for that added layer of intrigue.

Incorporating these costumes or ideas of your own into your escape room adventure can elevate the overall experience, infusing it with immersion and excitement. Not only will you look the part, but you'll also feel like a true participant in the story. Plus, it's a fantastic way to break the ice with your fellow adventurers and add an extra layer of fun to the challenge.

However, keep in mind the key to a successful escape room costume is to strike a balance between authenticity and practicality. You want to be able to move freely and work with your team effectively, so choose costumes that allow for both. With the right attire, you'll be ready to tackle any escape room adventure and create memories that will stay with you long after October has passed. So, don your best costume and prepare for an unforgettable escape room experience!
