If you're the type of person to want to go as something during Halloween but never really has the patience, the drive or the time to put something special together, then you're a lot like us. Well, most of us, at least. Putting a costume together isn't an easy thing, really. First, you have to conceptualize. Do you wanna go out as a comic book character? A TV personality perhaps? Maybe a historically inaccurate figure like a ninja? Once you've decided, then actual work comes into play. Depending on the complexity of your chosen costume, the time requirements and difficulty vary. The most complex your costume, the more work you gotta put into it. You'll be running from one store to another, acquiring pieces and parts. You may even have to do a little sewing. Who's got time for that?
Now, to help you out with all that, us nerds put our noggins together and we came up with ideas for the busy Halloween party goer.
Dress up as a serial killer by putting on a black jacket and holding up a pair of scissors.
So, it’s Halloween. You’re strapped for cash and your girlfriend is bugging you to be her date to their company costume party. What do you do? You go to your bodega and whip up the most badass costume of one of the most beloved and most popular icons of Japanese media: Astro Boy!
To pull this look off, you would need:
- Plain black underwear (briefs or boxer-briefs)
- Red rain boots
- Hair gel
- Green belt (optional: Do YOU own a green belt?!
- Strip off every item of clothing you have.
- Put on all of what’s listed above.
- Style your hair like Astro Boy (emphasizing on the horn-like protrusions).
- Drink beer for a boost in confidence.
- Throw away your self-respect and ParTAY!
If you’re skilled enough, you’d be as hardcore as this heartbreaker right here:
I forgot! Step 6: Don't get a boner.
The only thing to do now is strut your stuff and watch people be stunned with awe and amazement of your sheer ingenuity. Happy Halloween!
Pants are optional.
Another good choice is a Transformer. Now you're probably thinking that this is entirely too complicated. You're not a cosplayer! You don't have the scratch or the talent to Papier-mâché yourself into an Optimus Prime costume!
Fine, but what about Balikbayan Boximus Prime?
