5 Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas
Getting ready to close out the series’ 6th season, Don Draper of Mad Men is still breaking hearts with pomade-slicked hair, a sharp suit, and tough attitude. Pick out one of your sharpest and darkest suit and a few accessories to pull this costume together as well as Don pulls together advertisements.
What Don will need: Navy or gray suit, whiskey glass, a lighter and a rapier wit.
Like many 9-5 office workers, the cult classic movie Office Space resonates deeply with their day-to-day work life. To really pull off this quick and easy costume, strap on some suspenders, remind everyone at the party to hand in their TPS reports, and break the news that you’ll need them to come in to work on Saturday.
What Mr. Lumbergh will need: Blue dress shirt with French cuffs, suspenders, coffee mug, and an irritating urge to ask people to work overtime.
If you enjoy being the life of the party, there’s no better option than dressing up as Tom Cruise’s character Joel from Risky Business. Hike up your tube socks, grab a pair of Ray-Bans and make sure to request “Old Time Rock & Roll” as you slide into the party.
What Joel will need: A pink dress shirt, white men’s briefs, tube socks, and a popped collar for Bob Seger-style air guitar solos.
What you’ll need: A black suit, a tuxedo tie, plastic pistol and the swagger of an international spy.
Behind Clark Kent’s tortoiseshell rims and underneath his dapper suit hides everyone’s favorite hero-- Superman! Don some spectacles and a suit for the base of the look, but really drive the superhero detail home by putting your favorite Superman shirt on underneath an opened dress shirt and tie. Tell the party guests to keep their Kryptonite at home!
What Clark will need: A crisp suit and white dress shirt, Superman t-shirt, thick-rimmed glasses, and the ability to fly faster than a speeding bullet.
