Here we have Fran dressed in all red, with a diagonal white stripe circling around him. Pretty easy! Just get some red clothes and some toilet paper. Then, voila: You’re a straw!

You can also be a variety of other things which is the best part about this costume. Just toss an extra thing on and BAM!

Additional costumes:
Patriot – just put on a blue scarf or hat
Candy Cane – tell everyone how sweet you are
Christmas Too Early – add some green or even some fake mistletoe


Costume Two: Makeup & Smock

ft. Dollissa

If you have any makeup at all, you probably have some red lipstick or blush and some light foundation. If you don’t own makeup, powder your face with some baby powder and find some red food coloring or a marker I guess. This look was made specifically with one lip gloss, one eyebrow pencil, and baby powder. It will be impossible to take off.

Cheap Costume Idea: Clown

I know we’re not supposed to be dressing up as these guys right now but I’d wager that nobody will think you’re a clown murderer in the midst of a Halloween party.

Costume options:
Birthday Clown – smile
Hobo Clown – frown

Just kidding they are both scary clowns.


Costume Three: Angry Something

So no matter what costume Haircut is wearing she is pretty angry about it. The easy part here is that she is a cat.

Miscellaneous Ideas

ft. You

Okay so I don’t have time to trick too many of my friends and pets into taking these pictures, but you can figure these out. They are cheap and easy, just like cchris.

Elephant – get a paper towel tube and wear grey, be adorable

MRA – wear a fedora and wink a lot, call women “sweetheart”

Conspiracy Theorist – wear a tinfoil hat and blink rapidly when you speak

Arteest – grab a paintbrush, dress like you just rolled out of bed, have a prepared list of melodramatic and tragic comments for saying
