If you're heading to a Halloween party this weekend and don't have a costume yet, here are five last-minute topical costumes you can throw together with one quick trip to the store. You're welcome.
If you need a last-minute Halloween costume, AskMen.com has some things to AVOID. They're all ideas that have been done to death, or they were just ALWAYS lame. Here are four costumes to avoid, even though they're easy.
#1.) Backwards Man. It's when you just wear normal clothing, but backwards. So, backwards pants, shirt, and hat. People have been doing it for DECADES, and it's still not funny.
#2.) A Ghost. Wearing a sheet with two eyeholes works when you're FIVE. But once you're not three feet tall anymore, it's a TON of fabric, which tends to get snagged on things and not stay in place. Not to mention, you have to figure out a way to make the eyeholes stay in the right spot. And if you're wearing a sheet to a party, no one will know who's under it.
#3.) An Inanimate Object. To be a lamp, all you really need to do is put a lampshade on your head and wear all one color. Or for a table, you can just cut a hole through a piece of cardboard and wear it around your neck, then glue things on it, like Chap Stick or a cardboard clock. The problem is, most people who dress up like objects don't look very good. And if you're making your costume last-minute, it'll DEFINITELY be bad. Plus, those kind of costumes aren't very comfortable, so you'll probably end up taking it off.
#4.) A Hobo. This one isn't on the list, but it should be. All you need for it is some old clothing, and maybe some stubble. But dressing up like a homeless person just isn't PC anymore. Especially if you're well off.
