Yes, You Do Want to Be Olympian Laurie Hernandez For Halloween
At 16 years old, Laurie Hernandez has already swept the Olympic gymnastics competition with the Final Five and landed a spot on ABC's coveted dance competition Dancing With the Stars — and that's just this year. Who wouldn't be inspired by that winning spirit?
Since no one is quite yet over their case of Olympic fever, now's the perfect time to consider channeling your inner "Baby Shakira" for Halloween. Bonus: an Olympic gymnast might be the most comfortable costume out there (besides, you know, going as a baby in pajamas). All it requires is a leotard, a Team USA jacket, and two medals to match Laurie's gold and silver. If you need a little shopping help, keep scrolling for some curated ideas. Once you've pieced together the perfect outfit, get into Laurie's mindset by reliving her magical moments in Rio.
