Happy Hallow-Meme

“Yes, this is real life. Stay in your seat.”
“Yes, this is real life. Stay in your seat.”

I’m usually a pirate. As much as I love Halloween, I always forget to put any sort of forethought into 1) coming up with a costume and 2) buying the stuff necessary to pull of a costume. But I’ve got an ‘80s blousey shirt thing, striped chef pants, a bandana and boots at the ready in my closet. Voila! Pirate ad infinitum.

I know I’m not alone, because I keep seeing the same default-pirates lingering around the punch bowl year after year. It doesn’t have to be that way. Should Halloweetards like us choose to seek help, there’s the Hallow-meme Costume Builder.

21 costume “recipes” show you how to ape of-the-moment cultural items like Balloon Boy (childish clothing + Jiffy Pop container + saucer balloon from Party City) or Kanye West/Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs (shutter sunglasses + black collard shirt + bald head kit + toy microphone; blonde wig + meaningless award + red carpet dress), plus billions-hit YouTube staples like the wailing grape-stomping anchor lady (yellow polo shirt + khaki shorts + purple bucket + plastic grapes) or David After the Dentist (seatbelt + Florida Gators T-shirt + tooth blackener). Oolong the Pancake Bunny? Three Wolf Moon group costumes? All our fantasy friends are here. Should you need them.
