It’s Halloween today. (If you weren’t already aware of that, this post is probably fairly meaningless to you.)
Don’t have a costume? Don’t have any minute to spare to pick up whatever is left on the shelves at your closest store with costumes? Don’t worry! Here are five last minute costume ideas that’ll turn heads, make your mamma proud, and raise self-awareness!
- Sailor on shore leave
Dress in jeans, a polo, and a pair of sneakers (for the fellas) … ladies, I don’t know, same thing?
Tell people you just got off a boat that you’d been on for 10 months, and maybe do an impression of a fog horn, also throw out an ‘aye matey’ or two just because.
Caution: People may accuse you of just wearing casual Friday work clothes, but that’s an ok thing to be accused of because that’s exactly what you’ll be doing.
- Someone’s Dream
Don’t go to any parties, if people text or call say, “you’ve got to chase ME, man, I don’t just come to you.”
Likelihood someone gets this? 0.1%
But if someone does, you should probably marry that person or start phasing that person out of your life.
- Donald Trump
Have a stuffed animal cat? Grab it aggressively, walk around talking about a wall, and say things like, “I’m not racist, but …”
Con: Way too many people will be doing this.
Pro: People seem to enjoy obvious comedy.
- Old McDonald
Dress as slovenly and poorly as possible, whatever that means to you and your closet/dresser/corner of your room. Also bring a bottle of liquor, maybe even pour some on yourself to really commit to the costume.
We all know the song – ‘Old McDonald had a farm …’ Yeah, he HAD a farm.
Have fun with it: What happened to Old McDonald’s farm? Do you hate the government now? Was it booze? Gambling? Aliens? Tell a new story to every person you meet!
- Yourself from one day in the future
Dress however you want, but tell everyone how amazing your costume was yesterday, and then explain how woeful it is that you are from one day in the future.
Seriously?: Yeah, I’m out of ideas.
…: Look, it’s just a few hours til kids arrive with candy, get cracking on that costume!
