Dude, Where’s My Costume?

Less than 2 weeks until Halloween, and I still haven’t gotten a costume! What am I going to be? Am I doing a couple or group costume? How many parties to do I need to prepare for? Sexy or Warm… Ugh, choices. Shoot, its October 30th! Can I pin and tape together a last minute costume with what I’ve got laying around my studio apartment? Do I even have tape or pins….

Ok, so if you’re reading this and you can relate, here’s what to do:

  1. Go to Amazon ASAP! And take @AnaMariaGlavan’s advice!

To summarize here are a few favored options as of today:

  1. Be cozy! – Glow-in-the-dark Bones Body Suit

  1. The Head Turner(s) – Inflatable TRex… Truly terrify your children on Halloween morning by chasing them out of bed!  VS. The Shark Onesie, humming the Jaws theme song as you saunter along.

  1. Grapes – a packet of green/purple Balloons + Pins + Shirt


  1. Nickelback… Cash in a whole dollar at the bank for a pack of 20 nickels + hot glue + Tshirt (or just write 5¢ all over the back to be extra frugal)

  1. Salt & Pepper – black & White shirts + black “S” & white “P” cut out of paper + tape/pins/hot glue

  1. Really don’t have much? Well just get Paper + Pen + Tape (hopefully a lot of paper and tape), Write “Error 404 – Costume Not Found” and please cover up what you can…. For the easily chilled, you can just write on a shirt.
