1. Zombie – Rip up some old clothes, put on some gray face make up and paint dark circles under the eyes. Watch Michael Jackson’s Thriller video for inspiration.
3. An old school journalist – Wear a khaki trench coat with dress pants and shoes. Top with a fedora with a note card in the ribbon on the brim that says “Press.” Carry a reporter’s notebook or an old camera. Or, go as a Patch editor and wear yoga pants, carry an iPhone and clutch a coffee cup as though your life depends on it.
4. Macklemore – Grab $20. Put it in your pocket. Then head to the thrift store to pop some tags to dress up like this popular rapper. Buy an oversized faux fur coat, some funky glasses or jewelry and use the rest to buy a slushie. And use the bag from the Goodwill your goods came in as another accessory.
5. A Minion from Despicable Me – Here’s what you’ll need: overalls, a yellow long sleeve shirt, a yellow knit cap, scarf or bandana, black gloves and goggles.
