LOL-approved Halloween costumes for surriosly cool chicks
C’est l’Halloween! C’est l’Halloween, HEY!
C’est l’Halloween! C’est l’Halloween.
It’s October 31st, and if you don’t have a Halloween costume yet, well sheet… you might just want to grab a sharpie and go the same route as I did at work today (see above – and below for where I got my inspiration.)
Then again, if you’re speedy (or are reading this in advance of Halloween 2013 – THE FUTURE) you might be able to crank out one of the following gems, guaranteed to get you mad love and respect from all the right people (read: me. Only me.)
Whatever you go as, don’t do Honey Boo Boo. That shiss played.
1. Lisa Simpson as Floreda (Floreda)
I’ve been wanting to do this one for years but always end up leaving it to the last minute just like homer did.
Unfortunately it’s not something you can simply slap together… unless you have a stiff old matress lying around the house just like homer did. You could also use whatever it is these people have all over them (what is that though?) but for the love of Jeebus, paint it grey!
Cheers to you, people I found through Google Images, for proving that this also makes a most cromulent couples costume!
2. Jay and Silent Bob
Okay, not Jay AND Silent Bob, but Jay OR Silent Bob – unless you want to get creative and do one of those half / half contumes, which would actually pretty cool…
I found that brilliant photo on the blog of some chick who’s Tumblr is called “durpinouteveryday.” You would get mad respect from anyone who knows what’s up wearing this guise, especially as a girl, especially as a duo.
3. April O’Neil
Oh she, of the yellow pant-suit, Ninja Turtle befriending fame.
This costume would be a no-brainer if I could ever find a GAHT DANG YELLOW BODYSUIT!
Carol Zara told me she had hers custom made a few years back and spent more time waiting for it than I would care to plan ahead for. Any leads on where one can get suits like this in Toronto (or shipped in 12 hours) would be much appreciated (but only within 3 days of Halloween, otherwise I’ll be like “so?”)
4. Sailor Moon
Another costume I’ve been hoping to pull off my entire life, idealy with four friends who can play the original sailor scouts by my side.
If ever I can keep four girlfriends around long enough to make this happen, It’s on. I’ll likely get married the next day to whoever I happen to be dating at the time baring any deaths or hissy fits because HEY! BRIDESMAIDS!
5. A FREAKING SHOE
6. Khaleesi / Daenerys Targaryen
Princess Daenerys Stormborn of the house Targaryen! MOTHER OF DRAGONS! I defy you to find me a stronger, more badass female character in the modern telesphere, I DO!
Bonus points if you go as horse heart-eating Khaleesi, covered in blood, or just-emerged-from-the-fire Khaleesi with dragons covering your bits.
7. A Tamagotchi
Awww, isn’t that a sweet, nostalgic costume? That’s how a cool chick dresses like a toy. This is how a not-so-cool dude does the same thing.
A few bonus ideas that I didn’t have time to fully flesh out:
- Patty Mayonaise
- Wendy Peffercorn and Squints
- The cast of Saved By The Bell
- The Rich Kids of Instagram
- A bottle of Ketchup
- The Botched Fresco (but only done well)
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM ME AND KRISPY KREME!
