Looking for something quick and timely for a Halloween costume this year? Let’s look at some recent news stories for inspiration.
Chilean Miner – Salute the recent rescue of the Chilean miners by dressing as one for Halloween. Just about anyone can do this costume if you have the right items. For the proper Chilean miner look, you will need a hard hat with a light attached, a green jumpsuit or loose green pants and long-sleeved T-shirt, and sunglasses. If you have long hair, simply tuck it up inside the hard hat. Rub some dirt on your face if you like.
For an extra touch, add a short-sleeved tan T-shirt with inspirational message in Spanish and a climber’s harness.
Lana Lawless – This is a great costume for a muscular guy who want to have some fun with the idea of cross-dressing for Halloween. Lawless, of course, is the transgendered woman who wants to play in the LPGA but has been barred because she wasn’t born a woman.
Simply dress in women’s golf clothes – a short-sleeved polo shirt (over a stuffed bra) and slacks will work, along with golf shoes – and add a shoulder-length blonde wig. Of course, carry a golf club wherever you go. Wear some makeup, especially lipstick, but don’t shave your legs. Nail polish would also be a nice touch.
Cigar Guy – What a natural for Halloween, because you never know where Cigar Guy will turn up. This is the funny-looking mustachioed fellow who was caught in the photo with Tiger Woods and became an Internet sensation.
You will need a longish auburn wig, tied back in a ponytail, a fake Groucho Marx-style mustache (thick and black), and of course, a big cigar. For further adherence to the look, wear a navy blue windbreaker and dark slacks. Be sure to keep a goofy look on your face throughout the evening.
