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.

A MEMEorable Election

6 Oct

One month from tomorrow voting booths will be swarmed, absentee ballots will be sent in, and all of your political friends on Facebook will bombard your newsfeeds with trash talk. After the debate on Wednesday, Americans are left with only one question to answer. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?  (That awkward moment when you just sang the lyrics in your head)

Given all the tweets, posts, and memes created after the Presidential Debate; it is clear that one point stuck out to all Americans. Mitt Romney is going to tear down Sesame Street, and Big Bird’s going first. In support of this program as well as its network, PBS, I will now give you a rundown of the election, Sesame Street style (and also condensed).

A is Americans who get to choose their president, unlike North Koreans

B is for Budget that needs to be balanced

C is for Conservatives aka WASPs

D is for Debt that China is currently funding

E is for Electoral College who will end up choosing the president, anyways

F is for future that is looking pretty bleak

H is for Health Care that could potentially be for all

I is for Independents who are voting for anyone but

J is for Jim Lehrer who couldn’t control the opponents speaking time

L is for Liberals aka Occupy Wall Street campers

O is for Obama who seemed complacent while debating

P is for President that will be chosen on December 17th

R is for Romney who discounts 47% of Americans

S is for Sesame Street gang who are currently voting for Obama

T is for Tea Party, where did they go?

V is for Vice Presidents who will debate on October 11th

W is for Write In which seems to be the best option (Hillary 2012)

X is for Xbox that is running daily polls (turns out it’s not just for Halo after all)

For all you Republicans and Democrats out there, keep on debating. Post your rants, tweet your concerns, and comment with your disagreeing opinions. For all we know this next President may only lead for five days. I’ll take Romney over the Mayans any day.
