(Costume ideas below the picture.)
Hey San Diegans,
I spent my prime blog writing time at Disneyland! I learned that Blue Bayou really does have “the best” Monte Cristo, it’s not an overstatement, and at California Adventure I learned that the silly swings are seriously fucked up. I will never go on those again. I only ever want to feel that sideways if I earned it through copious alcohol consumption, not a undulating suspension ride.
I’m down to 15 minutes before I need to start assembling my own costume, and I realized if I really do want to provide a service through this blog, I can at least share some last-minute, cheap and lazy, DIY Halloween Costumes that I found / imagined. Enjoy, and see you out at the bars tonight!
Movie Theater Floor
Wear black and stick on popcorn and empty candy wrappers.
Road to Nowhere
All black + white tape dotted line, then make an attachment or sign for your belt or hat that says “nowhere”
Fork in the Road
Road costume from above and dangle a fork on a necklace
White shirt + yellow circle + devil horns
Error 404 costume not found
(print this and tape it to your clothes)
Carry around a toy airplane
Operation (board game)
Use a thick red marker to draw the outlines of “adam’s apple,” “wishbone,” “funny bone,” etc. on white paper. Cut just outside the red lines and tape all the pieces on to yellow or nude colored clothing (or your naked body if it’s that kind of party). Wear a red clown nose or paint your nose red, or find one of those light-up Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer noses (I happen to have one..somewhere….)
All black clothes + print out oversized postage stamps and affix to the left side of your chest. (Google image search stamps and put on a “large” size filter)
Green clothes dotted with those page markers/stickies from office supply store or stolen from work
(Can you tell I’m just looking around my desk at this point?)
Any of the rage comics
Print out one of the rage faces as a mask, use black tape on white clothes to make a stick figure body.
