It’s that time of the year again. Everyone is scrambling to get their costumes ready for tonight and tomorrow’s Halloween festivities. Judging by the looks of things (Twitter….), there are 5 costumes that are going to be done ENTIRELY too much. I’ll break them down for you here…so my suggestion is don’t be like the rest of your Twitter timeline…make an original costume this year. And if all else fails, traditional sheet with some eye holes cut out always works. LOL.
5. Antoine Dodson
He was this year’s internet sensation. Everyone has turned to their friends at one point and randomly exclaimed, “now run tell DAT!” Well, at least I have. They’re taking it so far as to be selling this guy’s “costume” in stores already. And even if you don’t find the costume in your local Halloween retailer, it doesn’t take much to grab a bushy wig, a red bandanna and a black wife-beater and epitomize flamboyant for an evening. I say this as a girl’s costume because it’s really a costume either sex can do.
Yea….blue paint, a bra and some shorts. Not much work to this one. And you think everyone is going to talk about how “crazy you are for painting your whole body blue! Oh my gosh!” But trust me…there will be about 7 others of your kind there. People get tired of telling you how crazy you are after about the first 3. (That’s my homie Lisa in the picture by the way….sorry Lis. LOL)
3. Kim Kardashian (that’s Tyra for Halloween last year)
Yea…flat iron to your hair, a cute dress, fake lashes and some fierce shoes. Wasn’t that Posh Spice like 12 years ago? Or just you on a typical Saturday night? Yawn.
2. Snooki (that picture is the model for the Snooki costume they sell…LOL)
The girls around here (NJ/Staten Island) don’t even have to change what they wear regularly. A poof, some orange spray tan, a dress from Joyce Leslie, slippers and a pickle. My mom was Snooki at her office Halloween party this week so….that should tell you what that’s about. LOL.
1. NICKI MINAJ (#DEAD at this picture LMAO)
Pleaseeeee don’t do this. Especially if you’re more of a “Precious” than a “Barbie”. Spare us all because 97% of girls are going to be one (of the many) Nicki Minaj looks. There are various ones they may go with. There’s “traditional” Nicki….the one from 09 before she discovered the joy of wigs. Black hair, pink streaks, pink lipstick, a push up bra, black tights and some heels. You’re not original. Then there’s the “Barbie” Nicki…pink wig and a semi-crazy outfit. You’re just going to look like a girl in a pink wig.
