SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – BYU’s king of Halloween Tom Holmoe revealed his much anticipated 2022 costume. This year he is dressed as Yoda.

In years past, Holmoe has typically stuck with a pop culture-related costume – like Voldemort or Ernesto De La Cruz from Disney’s Coco. He also went as Rafiki one year, which was a huge win.

This year’s character is from the Star Wars franchise.

While dressed as Yoda, Holmoe discussed the new Big 12 media rights deal on BYU Sportsnation.

Tom Holmoe’s Past Halloween Costumes

The BYU Athletic Director’s yearly costume is such a hit, our BYU Athletics Insider Mitch Harper took some time off hard-hitting sports journalism to rank Holmoe’s costumes.

7. Albert Einstein (2015)

Simple. Classy. But one of these costumes had to take the last spot. Einstein lands here.

6. Lord Voldemort (2016)

I don’t claim to be the biggest Harry Potter fan in the world. But I can respect a good Halloween costume when I see one.

5. Abraham Lincoln (2013)

This was the costume that started linking Holmoe as Mr. Halloween. Clean look and a great tribute to an American icon. In the words of Lincoln himself, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” Holmoe was a good “Honest Abe.”

4. Phantom of the Opera (2020)

Feels like this is too low. The simplicity is top-notch, but then he removes the mask, and it’s a work of art. It’s just hard to find a spot in the top three.

One can only imagine how many hours Holmoe spent in the chair of makeup artist Jennine Hollingshaus for this great costume.
