Here they are. My 2012 Pop Culture Halloween ideas:
Honey BooBoo and mom – My favorite character(s) of 2012. Get a blonde curly wig, a super fluffy pink pageant dress with a sash and tiara. Speak in a southern accent and yell phrases like, “You better redneckcognize!” and “I’d holla for a dolla.”
Potato Jesus - though someone already dressed up as this brilliant botched fresco, it’s still hilarious. Just follow the guy’s lead above and you’re guaranteed some laughs.
Zombie Steve Jobs – Too soon? Easy costume though. Black turtleneck, light jeans and some zombie makeup. Wave around your iPhone throughout the night.
FLO, Mayhem or Jimmy Dean Sunshine guy – Pretty self-explanatory
Hunger Games victim- Wear a t-shirt with blood stains all over it, some cargo pants and boots and this Mockingjay pin with an arrow through your head. Done.
Mmmagic Mike - Even better if you travel as a group. Cuffs, vest, bow tie, rip-away pants, thrusting. Bonus points if you carry boombox (or whatever the 2012 equivalent is) blaring “It’s Raining Men.”
50 Shades of The Grey - Yep I said that right. A mash-up of both movies 50 Shades of Grey and The Grey. Slap on a sexy wolf costume, throw in some whips and chains and handcuffs. Boom.
Gangnam dude- Now you have the excuse to do the dance alllll niiiiight long. Sunglasses, suit, bizarre neon yellow sidekick. Oppan Gangnam style.
Oh, and don’t forget to scream at women’s butts.
Speaking of butts,
The Kardashian sisters- tight slutty matching outfits from Sears. Stuff the back of your pants. Wear long dark wigs. Have a tall friend.
The Bachelor- Perfect for single guys looking to pick up ladies on Halloween. A nice suit and a bouquet of red roses to hand out. Occasionally propose.
Big Bird- Who know Big Bird would be so popular this year? Even more topical if he carries a cardboard sign.
Felix Baumgartner- Wear a Red Bull sponsored astronaut suit. Jump off things.
Chia Obama/Romney- I saved the best for last. Buy an Obama or Romney mask. Spray paint the face orange and paint the hair green. You can, but I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary, buy a green wig too. Wear a suit.
Whew! There you have it.
