Last Minute Hipster Halloween Costume- Your Ideas

Yesterday’s post regarding last minute hipster Halloween costume ideas had such positive feedback that I wanted to hear your ideas!

Y’all are so clever…

Hall and Oates– (for Hall) blonde mullet, leather jacket or private detective coat, a list with a woman’s kiss print on it, (for Oates) jheri curl wig, mustache, t-shirt with arms cut off, the ability to handle being second fiddle OR I like@dj_orions idea better: carry around a bag of oats and when people ask what you’re doing say, “I’m haulin’ oats.”

Antoine Dodson– black undershirt, red handkerchief, jheri curl wig, sass, discomfort in knowing that there is something still slightly racist about making fun of this (via josh)

The Hipster Grifter– pixie wig, headband, any Urban Outfitters ensemble, fake tattoos on chest, a copy of Vice Magazine, the weight of the world’s hate on your shoulders (via @pollysyllabick)

Marc Bolan– Jheri curl wig, Bowie’s hand-me-down fitted velvet three piece suit, boa, and glittery cheekbones (@leviharris)

Zombie David Foster Wallace– long hair wig in pony tail, frameless glasses, flannel, a copy of Infinite Jest, green and white make-up, a noose around your neck  (@benjamindobbin)

Burt Reynolds on Bear Skin Rug-nude underwear around your junk, spirit gum synthetic hair all over your chest and stomach, mustache, cigarette, oh, and a bear skin rug  (via @lugzzz)

Cast of Saved by the Bell– (group costume)-hold up an American Apparel (via @dunphy16)
All of Daniel Day-Lewis’ Characters COMBINED!– a mustache, a top hat, a vintage suit with bow tie, a low rumbling voice with an accent of your choosing, a weapon and/or sidekick of your choosing, sex appeal in a bottle (via lola)
Juggalo– and ICP t-shirt, various gothic caccessories and make-up from Hot Topic, a mailing address that is your parent’s basement, a deeply rooted hate for the world and yourself (via @mexikinda)

Dr. Strangelove– wheelchair, suit and tie, tinted glasses, blonde bouffant, cigarette, glove, German accent,
love for Peter Sellers (via Jenny)

Spinal Tap (group costume)- black spandex leggings, guitar, rock star wigs and mullets, foil wrapped cucumber in pants, a sandwich with a toy shark in it, herpes on upper lip.
Corky St. Clair (for the advanced Christopher Guest fan)- blonde toupe, reading glasses, Judy Tenuta t-shirt or silk kimono, My Dinner With Andre action figures, a lisp, and an absent “wife”. 
Maura Kelly (Marie Claire despised blogger)– a generous amount of self-loathing, covered by a thin veil (via @zeppomarxist) and clearly a shirt that says, “Thinspiration!” with a photo of Mike and Molly on it (via @inflammatorywrt)

    Antoine Dodson is actually selling his "Bed Intruder" outfit online as a Halloween costume.

    There is nothing racist about enjoying that video and anyone who says it's racist obviously has "white guilt." Dodson's made a lot of money to take care of his family with by taking advantage of his new found fame.

    Awww I almost feel bad for Maura Kelly – the entire world now knows and loathes this woman!

    Also, there should be a caveat for the Burt Reynolds one that only muscly, hairy, mutachio-ed men are allowed to do this otherwise skinny little boys might try it and that'd just be awkwarddd…
