Love all things data science, machine learning, and AI? Love Halloween? No trick, we have a treat for you: the top five Halloween costumes for data fiends, revealed!
You still have the weekend to pull together these wicked ensembles for the best data-inspired costume at the party.
5. Data Ninja
If you’re low on time and high on stealth, Data Ninja is your calling.
Dress in all black, grab your ninja weapon of choice, add your most creative data-related symbols or artwork, et voilà. You’re ready to take on whomever or whatever arises, whether it’s an enemy lurking in the darkness or some serious data munging.
4. A Data Lake
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, why not be a data lake?
A pair of hospital or nursing scrubs and some creativity will help you prep this data costume in no time. Aquatic life can represent your structured, semi-structured, unstructured, or binary data — just make sure you don’t look too much like a data swamp.
3. A "Jupiter" Notebook
Fashion yourself a planet bodice (if this kid can do it, so can you) and from there, just add notebook-lined pants!
2. The Data Miner
If you have a miner costume lying around from circa 2010 or if you love looking for new patterns and discoveries in data more than anyone else on your team (or you just have an affinity for overalls), this one’s for you.
1. (BONUS: Couple's Data Costume!) Python & R
This one’s a bonus because it’s actually two data costumes for the price of one. Go as a couple, or choose one to solve the debate once and for all: Python or R?
Python is decidedly at a disadvantage because it’s logistically harder to pull off (who doesn’t already have a standard pirate costume at the ready?), but if you’re really determined, you can do it. Whichever data costume you end up going with this Halloween, have fun with it!
