Angelina Jolie is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but looking like her is not that difficult. All you have to do is dig out your little black dress, nude pumps and aviator glasses. Remember that the key to any successful costume is exaggeration, so plaster tons of white powder on your face, draw veins on your arms and feet, put your largest costume-jewelry ring on your left ring finger, walk into a wall to make your lips swell and if you really want to press people’s buttons, duct-tape half a dozen ethnic baby dolls to your costume.
Remember that flesh-tone tattoo shirt you got on vacation? Dig that out and wear it under an Affliction or similar style t-shirt (you know, the ones worn by complete tools?). If you have long blond hair, straighten it and wear the beach cowboy hat you also got on vacation. Hopefully, you also have a pair of ridiculously embellished cowboy boots. See? Before you can say Rock of Love Bus or Hepatitis C, you’re Bret Michaels!
This is one of the simplest of the all last-minute celebrity costumes. All you need to do is throw that bag of stuff that you’ve been meaning to take to Goodwill on the closet floor. Now roll around in it. You’re almost done. All that’s left to do is color your hair with Kool-Aid and tape a “I hate Mariah Carey” sign to your costume.
Got three dirty t-shirts, a stained blazer, lots of hippie and hemp jewelry, and a fedora lying around? You’re just a head of greasy hair and one pair of blue-tinted sunglasses away from being a Johnny Depp look-alike. If you want to get more elaborate, you can dress up as one of Johnny’s characters, such as Jack Sparrow or Willy Wonka. Frankly, neither of these costumes are much of a departure from the Johnny Depp costume. For Jack Sparrow, switch out a fedora for a pirate hat and glue a couple of strands of long hair to your chin. Ditch the jewelry and glasses, and you’re Willy Wonka.
We saved the easiest and the best for last. Wear that cheap suit that you bought for your last job interview. Stuff Grandma’s scarf in the breast pocket. Slick back your hair and scrounge up a pinky ring. Now watch a few episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to perfect your punk impersonation. Happy Shalloween!
Four words — skin-tight leopard print. Oh, two more words — fake tan. Have fun with your Snooki disguise. Purposely mismatch leopard prints, kick in a neon-pink accessory like a hair bow or hooker heels, and most important plaster on orange face makeup. A baby doll in one hand and a beer in the other are the perfect accents for this costume. It’s Halloween and a Snooki costume — people expect you to be tacky and offensive.
Ooooo, this is a fun one. OK, gather your hair in a bun so tight it looks like your eyes will pop out of your skull if you sneeze. Wear the shiniest thing you own. Think: Disco ball. Apply pink lip gloss and wear those hoop earrings you bought that are so heavy, they give you a headache. Lastly, ask your younger brother to dress like a thug and bring him with you to pose as the boy-toy companion.
