PITTSBURGH - With on and off showers for Trick-or-Treat Wednesday, Severe Weather Team 11's Scott Harbaugh put together a last-minute list of rain-friendly costumes.
These classics will allow you to collect tubs of candy while staying dry. Well, most of them will keep you dry.
Pittsburgh native Gene Kelly
You'll be singing in the rain all night in this 1950s business attire and pea coat. Heck, you even get to splash in the puddles. Warning with this costume, if you are tone-deaf, please spare the rest of us from the singing part.

With a new version of the iconic character coming back to the big screen this winter, Mary will be very trendy in the coming months. Just make better use of the umbrella than Mary did in the movie.

Old-fashioned tightrope walker with an umbrella
I'm not sure this umbrella idea from 20 stories up was anything more than a prop, but it will allow you to stay dry while collecting candy.

David Tennant from BBC's "Dr. Who"
Tennant's iconic TV moment staring off through the rain has become a meme sensation the last 10 years. Of course, you'll get soaked, but you'll look cool.

The Morton's Salt Girl
Not only do you get to carry a stylish umbrella, but you can also sprinkle salt along your path and listen to it dissolve in the puddles.
The Gorton's Fisherman
The sleek, yellow rain slicker and hat are sure to keep you dry. The extra room in the non-form-fitting slicker will allow you plenty of space to tuck and save your candy.
