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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.
