Having trouble deciding what to be for Halloween?
Expected to wear something to work or a party? Here are my very best ideas for last minute super cheap costumes:
For Men ~
Cereal Killer: Wear your every day wardrobe, carry around a box of cereal that’s been maimed. Add fake blood.
Arthur Dent: Wear your bathrobe (wear sweats underneath!) and carry around a tea-cup. Look confused…
Ghost Hunter: Wear sweats and a hoodie, carry around an old remote control, wave it around while talking about *EMF fields.
Your Mother: Embrace it. Say all the things she says. Wear the dorky clothes she wears; borrow an outfit from her if you can. Just be sure not to make the parody too close or she’ll never forgive you.
80’s Girl: You know you want to…good thing they still make Aqua-Net. Embarrass everyone around you, it’ll be great! Bonus points for attempting a “Cyndi Lauper.”
Cat, mouse, dog, or other animal: Cut out said animal’s ears from construction paper and tape it to a headband. Wear whatever you want and pin a tail to your butt. Growl, snarl, hiss, etc. at anyone who says you’re not wearing a “real costume.” The sell is all in the threat of rabies; be sure to look a little mad.
