Halloween is three weeks away, and it’s time to figure out that costume. For those of you who are new to the Chapel Hill version of Halloween, let me give you some advice: BE CREATIVE. Look, there are only so many sexy nurses and sailors Franklin Street can handle.
Having a hard time brainstorming up those costume ideas? Here are a few suggestions to get you started.
Why not dress up as the latest viral sensation? What you’ll need: black pants, dress shoes, sunglasses, bow tie, white undershirt and a brightly colored blazer. Make sure to practice your “Gangnam Style” well in advance so that you’re ready to break out into dance all night long.
Your favorite meme
This one will probably take the least amount of work and the most creativity of all the ideas listed here. There are tons of memes on the Internet. For example, if you wanted to dress up as Socially Awkward Penguin, you might just wear black and white clothes and waddle around all night while going up to random people and acting, well, socially awkward.
If the Internet isn’t your style, why not try dressing up as favorite former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes, whose recent vehicle incidents and bizarre appearances have been making headlines. Dye or spray paint your hair lavender to get her look. Then bump into random people and keep walking for the rest of the night. Maybe even carry a cupcake around? Just don’t lock yourself in Sugarland’s bathroom for two hours.
