I guess I should start by saying that if you are the kind of person that gets easily offended this post is NOT for you and you should NOT read this post.
Before you leave your comments know that I’m a lover. I love everybody independent of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation. This is an artistic and creative way of expressing my beliefs to criticize other people’s intolerant and judgmental views. Peace!
Anyway, I was thinking that we are almost in September and for many people this is usually the time that they start looking for costumes if they are ordering online. I am a worrier, so if I’m going to order something online I try to do it with plenty of anticipation so I can sleep at night without worrying that it will not get here on time. The do-it-yourselfers also start looking for ideas with plenty of anticipation as they have to buy materials, build, glue, sew, paint, etc, etc. FUN! In my opinion the DIY are always the best costumes.
Last year Miley Cyrus and her wrecking ball video inspired a ton of costumes so I started wondering about this year’s costumes. I have no idea what will inspire people this year, but based on recent events these are my top 5 do-it-yourself and totally mean and politically incorrect costumes. I can guarantee you will be the talk of the town. They are all fairly easy to create but the question remains: would you wear them? I can tell you I would not. It is kind of embarrassing to even think that I could come up with some of these twisted ideas.
#5 Basic White Girl
Did I say stereotype? Tease your hair, rub your hands on your eyes to smear your mascara and voilà. Basic white girl frazzled because her Starbucks cup is empty.
#4 Asian Hot Dog Eating Contest Champion
Totally stereotypical! Use a box as a tray if you don’t have a real tray at home. This costume should cost you almost no money to create.
#3 Solange Knowles in an Elevator
Almost like Jason in Friday the 13th or Michael Myers in Halloween. Scary! You can do an elevator fascinator or make and wear an elevator out of a cardboard box.
#2 Russian Bigot at the Sochi Olympics
It has to be very scary to be gay and have to walk among these haters. Note: I said bigot, not all Russians! 🙂 Russian hat with a gay pride pin or sash. Skinny jeans and boots and a Sochi Olympics t-shirt. You can also do your own t-shirt with a plain white t-shirt.
#1 Ebola Virus
Need I say more? It doesn’t get any scarier than that. You can get some of your friends together and say that you are the Ebola outbreak. These Tyvek suits and masks are not that expensive. Buy a couple of Sharpies and draw the virus on them.
There you have it! What do you think? Would you wear one of these?
