Costume ideas from your neighbors

It’s crunch time, people. Let’s get serious. You have the weekend left to score a costume or start constructing one because come next week all the thrift stores and seasonal aisles will be picked over. AJC, of course, has galleries and galleries full of photos because no one reads anymore and it’s cheaper to pay someone to upload photos of a dog painted like a skunk than to do journalism. They also have this thing called a “Costume-n-ator” – your guess is as good as mine. I don’t “want to see Ludacris as a nerd” so I haven’t tried it yet.

Jay of the Plug demonstrates step by step how he’s constructed various costumes in years past. My favorite is the cigarette vending machine.

If you’re trying to spend as little money as possible and are okay with a costume like “Mid-’90s Youth Pastor” or “Person in Stained Sweatsuit”, my suggestion is to hit the thrift stores on Monday since most have everything 50% that weekday
