Halloween Costume? Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.

24 Oct

Halloween is a week away and the pressure is ON. Finding a good costume has become almost as difficult as choosing who to vote for in this election.  No one wants to see the same old costumes that resurface every year, i.e. ghosts, witches, vampires.  Halloween has become a time of year when you can show just how creative and hilarious you really are all in one costume.  I’m not saying that finding a costume should take precedence over real life problems (how to dress when the weather shifts from 50 degrees to 80 in a day), but no one wants to go to a party and find another person dressed just like you. Halloween is a time to be unique, contrary to the popular belief that one should dress like a lady of the night. For all of you out there who are trying to come up with that unbeatable costume that will leave people talking about how creative you are for at least a day after the party you’re going to, here are some ideas inspired by social media:

Slender Man: I’m really not sure where this idea came from, but it has blown up memes all year. This horrifyingly simple costume is sure to freak out those who’ve had a little too much to drink. It doesn’t even require you to say anything, just stand alone in a corner and wait for someone walk past you.

Meme faces: Really simple. Copy your favorite face, print it out, and add some string so you can tie it around your head. Perfect for those who don’t want to put in much effort this year. If you want to score bonus points you can always walk around saying “y u no wear a costume?” or “Edward Cullen costume. Me Gusta.” It’s all up to you, but this costume could definitely start some interesting conversations.

Most talked about people of 2012: We have all seen the photo of McKayla Maroney who is clearly not amused by her competitors. Dress in your best sweats and walk around the party acting like you’re not amused by all of the costumes that are better than yours. Psy will also be a popular hit this Halloween. It’s time to drag out those flamboyantly colored suits and dance around like your pants are on fire. I’m not promising you might cause fights with those who are done hearing about your Gangnam style, but it will be fun while it lasts.

Hipster: Totally easy, just pull out those non-prescription glasses you bought last month to make you look “smart,” maybe add a flannel shirt and a scarf and you are good to go. For all you know, this is the best costume at the party. After all, you came up with it first.

If none of these costumes suit your spooky style, keep thinking! Let’s just hope that super awesome idea doesn’t come to you after the holiday is over… but I’m sure it probably will. (happens every time!)

Here’s something you can listen to while you get ready for your Halloween festivities.
