The perfect shirt to transform into a cactus is a green Gildan G540 Heavy Cotton™ 5.3 oz. Long-Sleeve. This is one of our top-selling long sleeves and will help keep you warm while out on Halloween night. To transform this tee, you will need a few simple items.

Next up, we have our favorite group costume of the year. Everyone is obsessed with La Croix, and so are we. So why not get a group of your friends to dress like these deliciously crisp and bubbly drinks for Halloween. To achieve this look, we suggest the Tie-Dye CD2000 Long-Sleeve T-Shirt, which also comes in a youth version, the CD2000Y. Or the short-sleeved CD1000. You can pick your favorite flavor and match it to the corresponding tie-dye color. Here are some suggestions on pairings of flavors and colors, to make for the perfect costume! Get some iron-on letters or use a Cricut, or other brand of vinyl cutter, to print out the LA Croix logo, so everyone knows what you are!
